    I do have a few nibbles but no firm offers yet.  When one comes,  I will update with trade in progress until a resolution.

    I am looking for automotive, GM or exotics.  One model for sure would be the recent Revell 67 Nickey Camaro.  Would consider two kits trade for this one.  Recent EBAY sales were near $70 without shipping, but this kit has a decal issue.  I have it in my to sell stash for the swap meets over the next couple of months and priced at $50

    His new bottles have  seal at the top that, so far, has not resulted in any dry up.  Time will tell, though

    To Trade - ERTL John Deere Backhoe
    Thinning out prior to moving.  Likely will never build.  All parts in their sealed bags.  Decals stuck to tire and have damage.  No trucks please, and looking for commensurate trade.

    Probably the closest would be HD03-0079 from Hobby Design.  At 18" in 1/24 they would be a little over 19" in 1/25

    Depending on how close they match to the real truck, not much.

    What are you talking about?  Just select the brand and car and you get the schematics page.  Click on a picture and you get a larger version.  Save it or print it.

    Look up Eurospares.  They have schematics on a whole stack of Ferraris.

    I have used the same, air brushed, but on colors where the slight yellow tint would not be  factor.  I am looking into trying the Model Master Clear Lacquer as it goes over Testor Enamel and MAY work here as well.

    I'm downsizing before moving.  I will get some pix to you to see if any interest

    I think that sums up view as well.  I don't think I could add more to it
