  1. 1972coronet added a post in a topic What predictions can we make for new kit releases in 2017?   

    I don't want to wrestle with that fidgety AMT 1969 Chevelle.  We need a new- tool 1968-1972 Chevelle,  Bottom line.
    Definitely a Freudian slip on my end regarding the Sportabout ; I meant to say Runabout

    ...and , pretty please , Round2- - I hope that the MPC Toyota Supra moulds are good / decent enough for restoration ! That was one of my favourite foreign car kits ever !

    - 440 / 440 Six Barrel version of the Revell 1970. ' Cuda 
    - 1971 'Cuda 
    - 1970 Charger
    - Pinto Sportabout 
    - 1970Dart Swinger ( good lord , wouldn't a stock 340 version with the 426 Hemi and its related hardware be the best ?!! An A/MP 1970 Swinger would be sweet !)
    - 11970-1972 El Camino of  
    - 1969 COPO Chevelle 
     
    Yes , half of those in my list are 'in-my- dreams'  , but others are realistic .

    I can hardly wait for the AMT 1/16 Nomad to be reissued ! Is that a scale that would interest you?

    Any and every old-in- a - new- box Revell kit in the 70s !! The 57 Chevy was oone which I attempted time and again only to toss it or give it away .
    MPCs horrid decals in the 70s also . Absolute garbage !! Those pieces of dung would disintergrate instantly , even on new relaeses !!

    One would certainly hope so . Last AMT Pacer WAGON kit I had was of the circa 1977 annual . I bought it at FedCo in 1982 for less than a dollar (!) . The 1987 Whittier Earthquake destroyed it ... and 98% of my collection up to that point .

    I swear , man , this corresponding via a tablet is as exercise in frustration ! Stop "autocorrecting" me !

    fOr the longest timeI was under the impression that Rallye Wheels were still available in 1980 . However , all of my research has turned up the other , body coloured wheels as being the correct wheels ; apparently , there were some anodised,  stylled aluminimum wheels available as well (?) .
    I'm planning on using either Rallye wheels or plan wheels with hubcaps . Time " wheel" tell 😏

    qUite nice to see the 1/16 scale 1955 Nomad making a return ! I hope that better tyres find their way into this reissue .

    I have an original issue of this kit ; the T-tops aren't molded in , per see ; those are just (obtrusive) trimming guides. I can't stand T-tops,  either .With some careful filing and sanding ,those obnoxious t'-top lines should disappear .
  14. 1972coronet added a post in a topic Tamiya paint reviews   

    Another vote of favour for Tamiya!  I use their paints (and their adhesives and putties)  almost exclusively , and have for 20 years+ .
    To add to the fanfare ; I have two bottles of Tamiya paints which are now 30 years old , and theyre just as good as they were the day I opened them in 1986 !     Expensive , but worth every cent !
  15. 1972coronet added a post in a topic What do you listen to while you build???   

    Depnds on what I'm working on . If it's an assembly which begs for something chill , then I'll listen to classical . Something that calls for imagination , I'll listen to Nuggets or DeathRock or psychedellic .
