    Does he prefer that you check to make sure things are in stock or just send him the order? He's got several things I want!
  2. Outlaw Porsche 964 build

  3. Sealed or open?

    If I'm buying a vintage kit, I prefer it to be already opened so I can check for missing parts. There used to be some unscrupulous sellers who would advertise sealed in box kits for a premium. It turned out they had shrink wrappers and would fake it. When when you bought it and opened it later it was a box with scrap parts.
  4. Revell Bronco

    Nice job. Where did you get the rooftop cargo, that really sets it off!
  5. Fuchs wheels with tires

    I need some of those as well!
  6. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    No pictures as they are being shipped but I ordered yet another Monogram Porsche 911 curbside and a Skip's Fiesta VW convertible built-up. Never had the VW before and mostly got it for the Porsche Fuchs wheels it has. There was a break between Sunday School and Big Church so I was surfing the auction site. My wife can't get mad at me because we were at church, right?
  7. Green work mat

    It was soooo tempting, LOL, but no, I got the light blue one.
  8. I finished one of my favorite kits from childhood! It's the Monogram 1/24th curbside from the 70s. I've bought several of these on eBay and actually have a couple more on the way. I've also started collecting other 911s as I find good deals. I bought a bunch of the Monogram full detail kits when HL did their clearance on them and I have a few Tamiya versions and one of the Fujimi ones (yikes) waiting in the wings. Anyway this one is built boxstock as a baseline. The color is Krylon Citrus Green which is similar to one of the mid 70s Porsche colors. I have other versions in mind for the future. (Note, I realized that I left the exhaust off and the license plate is crooked. Those will be fixed soon. Right now I'm just happy to finish something.
  9. Green work mat

    I bought one at Hobby Lobby with the 40% coupon. They were out of them in the hobby section but they had the same ones in different colors in the sewing area.
  10. Old Hobby Shop Photos

    When I was little, drug stores, dime stores and even grocery stores had a decent selection of kits. My grandmother had a small dime store for a while, but all she stocked were Palmer kits.
  11. Over-the-top hot-rod Corvair truck.

    That's really cool!
  12. Hobby Lobby/ Michaels ?

    Michael's will match Hobby Lobby coupons but Hobby Lobby won't take Michael's coupons. Really, the only reason to shop at either is for the coupon discount.
  13. Kit car kits

    Not designed as a kit car kit, but I have an extra Countach kit that is missing the engine and I have been thinking of building it as a kit car version. Maybe with a NASCAR V-8 or something.
  14. Duplicolor Acrylic Enamel Clear Coat

    I've used a couple of times. 3 years and it hasn't yellowed.
  15. C 1 model

    Has he dropped his line of wheels and tires?
