      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Such a strange thread.....with such limited knowledge of the subject,what is your point?
    Perhaps you should consider asking questions instead of posting inaccurate info?
  2. mike 51 added a post in a topic '49 Mercury Eight   

    ALL of the early Mercurys were V8s. (real ones and models)
    The Hirohata Merc was a 1951.
    The AMT kit was tooled in the early 60s..so you're almost right about that.
    As to the rest of your post...well never mind.

    Interesting post..kinda.  
    The AMT kit contains a stock flathead and a Chrysler wedge engine, NO Cadillac engine.
     It's the Revell kit(S) that have (only) a Cadillac engine.
    The "lead sled" comment is also incorrect......

    I'm glad this one has a stock body....

    The "proportional problems" are in the Foose design...this is a radically modified F100 and anyone unfamiliar with the Foose truck but knows what a 56 F100 should  look like may well be very disappointed.  I wish they'd choosen a stock bodied F100 instead....

    Just can't get past the "watermarks"...too bad you couldn;t share your model without them.

    very nice!
  8. mike 51 added a post in a topic Abbreviated Class of 2016   

    both cars are very nice but the 15 car is my favorite of the two....

    This has been a  fascinating thread.....
    perhaps the "Chinese" found faults with the kits like many of us did?   
    A powerful Model A restorer club that can't tolerate hot rods got someone's ear?
    or maybe simply an accident in a factory that damaged the shared parts?
    as mentioned above the "plans" surely still exist,make 'em here I'm sure many of us would pay the premium for a made in the USA kit.

    I'm still disappointed that we finally we get a updated 56 F100... but it cant be built stock.
     Why did it "have" to be a Foose-mobile?  A 2n1 or multiple versions would have been so much better.

    "....if you have to ask how much, you can't afford one!"  
    the only "stock" 32 kits were the old AMT 32s...
    not pricey,but also not that realistic..
    there are probably some very nice stock diecast models....
  13. mike 51 added a post in a topic '29 Roadster   

    VERY nice!  
  14. mike 51 added a post in a topic Sinister sectioned 32 Ford roadster   

    Interesting model but I think you meant to say you channeled the body not that you sectioned it..
  15. mike 51 added a post in a topic The Dig Dish Chronicles   

    I've always called those hubcaps..
    and the "big" ones, wheelcovers.  
    (just like the car companies always did)
