  1. A White 3000 bus? Wow, that is cool. Good job on it , too. 👍🏻
  2. Tell us what kits had them. Many of us have a big stash of parts and unbuilt kits. We may not know if we have what you need. I just offered a 1966 Galaxie 500 teardrop hood to a guy who needs it. That kit has been in my stash for 15 years and I never knew it had a second hood.

    66 Galaxie hood

    I have one of those. I don’t want anything for it. I didn’t know it was in the kit until I read your message. My work schedule prevents me from getting to the Post Office on a weekday, so it will have to go out next Saturday. If that’s OK with you, PM your address.
  4. I think this search might be more trouble than it’s worth. The guy at MCW said I would need to get info on the color. That makes perfect sense, but it would be a lot less trouble to mix something myself and shoot for a match with the box art.
  5. I didn’t see Kenwood blue at MCW. It’s not a color for something for something wildly popular like a factory 1969 Camaro color, but I saw another seller with two shades of blue for a 1930s Bugatti “tank” race car. I’ll have to keep looking. If no one sells a good match, it’s not the end of the world. It means no one can say mine is inaccurate. Pretty much.
  6. Was anyone doing it back in the 1960s? Maybe folks like Michele Conti? Was the metal grille in Tamiya’s old 1/24 Lotus Seven made of photetch, or made a different way? I remember being really impressed with that as a teenager back around 1984 or so. To be fair, information traveled a lot slower then. We didn’t have all the answers at our fingertips. Thanks. Lee
  7. I would like to be more accurate than Tamiya’s recommendation in the instructions. Thanks. Lee
  8. If advance payment would help make it happen, let me know. I would REALLY like to have several of these. Thanks. Lee
  9. I’ll check over the weekend. I have a lot to do over the weekend, so please be patient.

    My latest parts needs

    I’m afraid I don’t have anything you need, but two thumbs up for the list that is in chronological order.
  11. I had that made into a solid 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of decal years ago. I’ll have to see if I can find it. I’m not 100% sure it is accurate for an original Royale. I believe that pattern is from a replica that is or was in the Sinsheim Auto+Technic museum in Germany. I could be wrong on that.
