Sorry, Brett, in Canada current kits are now going for around $35 CDN. Low dollar sucks. I guess it's just me but metal axle screams $10 toy to me not a 2017 scale kit. And why go to all the trouble of going to all the trouble of scanning every thing to get body proportions right and then throw it all away with a clunky metal axle through the engine when there are far better ways of doing it?
If you find yourself in Toronto check out Wheels and Wings Hobby store and Hornet Hobbies. If you go further east to Whitby there is Dailey's Hobbies. There is a contest on September 30th put on by Group 25 model car builders called the Toronto Model Car Show.
I guess I'll be the one who has the cow about the metal axle through the engine. I cannot believe that in a day and age where we are now paying almost $35 for a kit that Revell's thinks it's appropriate to go back to sixties and run a metal axle through the engine. How hard would it have been to use the metal pins for mounting the front wheels like they've been doing for the past few years? Revell is trying to appeal to what market with this kit? Not the adult model builder. Obviously they are designing toys to be played with. No, I don't need a 27 pieces front suspension but I do feel 60's technology in a brand new 2017 kit is inappropriate. If that makes me a hater, I apologize but the pin type mounting system cannot be that much more expensive to produce and would have made a more acceptable product. I appreciate Revell bringing new product to market such as this truck and the upcoming Cadillac. The kit, I believe is no cheaper to buy due to Revell cheaping out on the wheel mounting system. I cannot see other genre model builders (planes, armor, etc) tolerating the model companies going back to sixties technology for their planes or tanks but we seem to think it's all right? I don't get it. O.K. frustrated rant over. Flame away and again I apologize for those that may be upset by this opinion.
The Model Car Museum is an active living entity whether the website is updated or not. It would be a most suitable place for some models and perhaps a copy of his book. But undoubtedly someplace like the Gilmore Museum or other car museum would also be appreciative of some of Harry's models that could represent the history of the automobile done in miniature. Whatever you and your brother and sister decide to do with your father's collection, Amy, I'm sure the community here will support and try to assist you with your decision.
I have no experience with this so I can only offer a suggestion. Perhaps as far as the forum is concerned check with someone like Flory models in the U.K. and see how their system works. They're mainly plane/armour group but maybe they can offer input.
Thanks, Gregg. I guess the post office ate my copy. Keep hoping it will show up. I will definitely re-up at the show. Wait, doesn't Jairus have a vintage wagon? There should be plenty of room in the back of that thing to lay down.
Thanks for the update, Gregg. I look forward to getting the renewal postcard. Thought I was good for another few issues but 203 has not shown up. So maybe I'm expired, maybe it went missing. I'll check the card when it gets here. Hope to see you in Salt Lake. You're not flying United are you?
