  1. Swifster added a post in a topic The newest model year in your stash   

    The newest in the stash is a Meng 2010 Ford F-350, 2009 Dodge Challenger and a 2006 Dodge Magnum.

    <----------- 1964 Studebaker Daytona. But I'm realistic. The 1/1 car didn't sell and neither would the model.
    The variations of the '57-'58 Fords and Tri-5 Chevys should be no-brainers. I love to see the '57 Nomad and a regular wagon.
    1970 Charger R/T
    1967/68 Cougar
    1968/69 AMC Javelin
    I would love for some company to do a nicely detailed '48 Tucker.

    I'd like a '69 Dodge Coronet R/T. Or even a '68 Coronet
     
  4. Swifster added a post in a topic 70 Torino GT Grille "Open Headlights"   

    Motor City Resin Casters has had various trans kits of the '70 Torino. You might want to see if he'll sell the grille separate. The kits are $40.
  5. Swifster added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    OK, I got an MPC '84 Fiero and a Revell '56 Chevy Del Ray...
  6. Swifster added a post in a topic 1966 Chrysler 300, Update, 5/1, DONE!!   

    Steve, I just found this thread. I love the 300's. My second car was a '67 300 in the red with a white interior and a white vinyl top. I loved that car. Will be watching to how this comes out.
  7. Swifster added a post in a topic Local Hobby Shp vs. Mega-Store   

    Since moving back to Michigan, I'm blessed with two large hobby shops (Great Lakes Hobby and Whistle Stop Hobby). GLH is only a mile from home. If Hobby Lobby as something I want and the price is right (with the help of their 40% off coupon) I might get something there. Central Florida had nothing like the two up here. Unfortunately, there is nothing up here that would keep me from moving back to the land of sunshine...
  8. Swifster added a post in a topic American 1:25 scale four door sedan and wagon promos and kits   

    There are various issues of the Chevy Nomads from 1955 to 1957. At the hobby store there was a '41 Ford woody wagon and a '49 Mercury Woody wagon.

    Let's not forget the recently released...
    Monogram 1957 Ford Del Rio wagon
    AMT 1970 Ford Galaxie 4-dr Cop Car (bad roof and all)
    Revell 2006 Dodge Charger (street and police versions)
    Revell 2006 Dodge Magnum
    AMT 2005 Chrysler 300
    Lindberg 1991 Ford Crown Vic
    I know there was a '91 Chevy Caprice cop car? Maybe also an Impala SS? 
    EDIT: I forget who made this, but I have a promo of the 1995 Chrysler Cirrus.
  10. Swifster added a post in a topic So anybody pick up the 69 Barracuda re-issue yet?   

    I'm going to have to get a couple as well, and a couple Darts (or 3 or 4). I think these cars were much better with the 340. A little kit bashing is in order.
     
  11. Swifster added a post in a topic Moebius 65 Belvedere I   

    I think a slant six and an auto will find a home in my FIRST one. I swear, some people cry over the dumbest stuff. There are enough Mopars of the approximate
    vintage to make whatever combination you desire. Would a bench seat be wanted? Absolutely, but I'm sure I'll come up with something. By the way, there is no
    visual difference between a 413, a 426W or a 440. So the intake and air cleaner are off. The stuff is out there. About the only engine that isn't out there is the
    318 poly engine that Chrysler used until 1966.

    I have two LFC cabs in resin.
  13. Swifster added a post in a topic 1957 Chevrolets   

    Thanks for they extra posts guys. What is an EMHAR kit? I've never heard of it. Khier, I've never seen a photo
    of the Corvettes mixed in with the standard Chevy's. The pics on the car haulers with Vettes had nothing BUT
    Vettes. Did Chevy 'mix and match'?
     
    As far as trucks go, I don't know if my skills are good enough to fab up a complete chassis. I thought that, as a
    roller, the Blitz might be close. Is a Cameo frame close to an LFR frame in length that it could be modified?  
  14. Swifster added a post in a topic 1957 Chevrolets   

    Bill, that would be great. I already have a couple of Cameos in my stash...
