      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    I actually [prefer this body style to the earlier ones. It's looking good!

    Where did you find this, in with the regular diecast? I've checked all the HLs in the area and didn't find them. It looks really nice!
  3. oldcarfan added a post in a topic How many scales?   

    I used to build according to the subject rather that the scale, but my OCDish traits mean everything needs to be a common scale now, so 1/24th-1/25th is the only thing that interests me anymore.

    It looks like one of those cars stuntmen used to build for movies when the real thing was too expensive or hard to come by! Cool!

    Love this. As I get older, I find nostalgia has caused me to see the cars I once ignored with new eyes. Also, as those eyes get a little less sharp, my fingers get a little fatter, and my patience gets less I am growing to appreciate those simpler, fun to build kits.

    Looks good. Can you direct us to the price and ordering information?

    Any ideas for traditional wheels and tires in untraditional sizes?
    I've been noticing the trend in 1:1 cars and trucks to have traditional wheels, steelies with dog dish hubcaps, Magnum 500s, even Minilites and such in 18, 20 inch and other sizes. Does anyone make such a thing in 1/25th scale? I've been wanting to add some to kits, but haven't seen anything like that.

    I'd love to have a stock one in 1/25-1/24th!

    The manufacturers are trying to figure out ways to meet mileage requirements while still meeting customer expectations. Few people buy manual transmissions anymore and hardly anybody sees CVTs as an acceptable transmission so the answer is to add more gears to conventional automatics. When I was little, I remember my granddad wondering why anyone needed a four speed. He figured three was enough for anybody!

    I had an 82 F100 like that until recently. 300 CI six with three on the tree. Loved it!

    Thanks for the reminder. I don't by much from there, but I always use the sort option. There have been a few times when I found the perfect model at the perfect price only to see the seller had tacked on a $30-$40 dollar shipping charge.

    I really love that car and envy your skills!

    OOh, I might have to get one. I built the Revell one, but it got lost in a move.
