    Maybe Revell will give me the 30 Ford pick up I keep hoping for based on the 29/30 tooling? Steve, the Matador seems like a good guess to me.

    It might be a bit late if you've left already but I can't guarantee they have any left. Best to phone first. I know mine was the only one Hornet got in.

    Chris, Wheels and Wings as well as Hornet Hobbies in Toronto have both had the coupe in. Wheels and Wings got theirs last week and Hornet got one for me this week.

    Received issue 201 today. Great issue. A little bit of something for everyone.

    Very sharp build of a sports race car.

    Look forward to seeing this article. I have my paint manual from the Model A club so I sometimes use that to judge period colours. I look forward to your take on colour choices. Your articles are always well informed.

    Cool! Thanks, Joe.

    Ummm.... 57 Ford? 57 Chevy? 57 Olds? 57 Studebaker? 57 Nash?

    Not yet although it usually gets up here a little later than the lower 48. I'm hoping it gets here before our postal service goes on strike. But that could happen as early as Monday so I'm not holding my breath.

    As I've stated elsewhere my Belvedere body is quite warped. I e-mailed them and even offered to pay for postage as they would have to ship it here to Canada. The response was build the model and if the body is still warped then we'll consider your offer of paying for postage. Not impressed.

    Cool mainstream Monza! Nice clean build.

    Cool concept! Ready for Baja.

    There are so many ways to look at this subject. But ultimately for me it's who am I to tell someone they are having fun wrong? I'm not going to tell Mr Obsessive he shouldn't spend all that time perfecting his models any more than I'm going to tell a builder who's having a great time banging together models that he should stop that and build models the "right" way. In a club I belonged to we had a builder that produced what we might call rough models. But by golly he was having a lot of fun; more fun than those of us who obsessed about mold seams and panel lines and polished paint etc. If he's having tons of fun with his models  and I'm shoving mine back in the box cuz I'm not happy with them or constantly purple ponding them, who's enjoying the hobby more? Am I going to tell him he's wrong? That he's having fun wrong? It reminds me of a Big Bang Theory episode where Sheldon complains his new friends are having fun wrong.
    If I praise someone here perhaps they will be encouraged to stay and maybe they will pick up the positive tips that are being passed on to others. I don't know, like I said many ways to look at the subject.

    They have them now but I couldn't get them there when they first came out. I had to get mine while down at Toledo NNL. Sometime after that I finally found one on the shelves at Wheels and Wings.

    Good luck, Chris. I had to get my 29s out of the States last year as no one up here seemed to get them. Hopefully we'll have better luck with the 30's.
