  1. My Father-in-Law gave it to me as a gift 30 years ago.
  2. Tamiya Fair 2018

    I've heard a bunch of speculation, including a LaFerrari Aperta. But nothing from anybody with a good pulse on what's happening. Will be interesting. I like Rob's idea of an LC 500, but Tamiya doing an 812 Superfast would be REALLY something, but highly unlikely.
  3. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    And I got it at what I consider a reasonable price. There is no decal sheet, but that doesn't bother me. There is custom bodywork unique to the 66. I also have a 67 unbuilt (with the Yenko stinger decals). The 57 bird has all the custom parts and the Superbird is complete as well, but it is molded in blue. But, that is not a problem for me. When I build it, it will only be the 3rd Mopar I've done.

    Hemi Dart also got the best engine
  5. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Picked these up at the Oregon Society of Scale Modelers event yesterday. The 3 on the left were picked up from vendors and the 2 on the right were door prizes. I also entered 3 models and was fortunate enough to come away with these:
  6. Midget tire

    I think Replicas and Miniatures of Maryland may sell them. He had a set of extra tires for the trailer.
  7. AMT/SMP history lesson wanted

    That's what it reminded me of, but it didn't come to mind
  8. 409 Chevy

    The big consideration is accessibility of the kit and what induction system you are seeking. The AMT 58 Impala has a 348 as well as 59 El Camino (as mentioned 348 and 409 look the same externally. The AMT 58 Impala includes a single carb and tri-carb setups. The 59 El Camino has tri-carb and a blower. The Revell 65 Impala Convertible has a single 4 BBL 409. The recently reissued AMT 61 Impala is actually the Lindberg one, with a single 4 BBL. The AMT 62, non-race car versions, offer inline or short ram dual 4 BBL options. The Revell 62's Impala and Impala SS offer the same inline dual 4 BBL option. I would opt for the later AMT 62 or Revell 62 as a base.
  9. Which kit is it?

    I don't think AMT did a convertible. Revell did the convertible and it uses a 283 FI engine.
  10. Lamborghini Reventon...on to the wheels!

    You dabbed it on with that chopped paint brush in the photo? Anything specific about the chalk? That is about as close a look of ALcantara that I have seen. I have been mist spraying a light color from a distance to get the effect, but it is too regular.

  12. Bent spoke Kelseys

    Curious about what the 57 Thunderbird wire wheels were?
  13. Scribe-ing deeper panel lines

    First question to ask is if you are applying too much pressure?
  14. Weber Carbs on Small Block Chevy?

    I seem to recollect either an AMT or MPC late 70's or early 80's Camaros had a Weber manifold option on small block Chevy. Can't attest to accuracy. My stuff is still boxed up, so I can't check to see if I have anything further. I'm drawing a blank on further detail. Anyone else recollect this?
