    Got this last week. I built one in the 70's and was missing a few parts until I found this one on the Bay.

    Here's a few from over the years. 56 F100 was wired in early 70's & the yellow Courier was done in the 80's.
    I was using sewing thread for plug wires & chromed elastic thread for braided hose!
    All the others were done in the mid 90's & early 2000's.

    My parents owned a low mileage 1965 Impala. The 283 was painted orange. The also bought a brand new 1971 GMC van in Sept of 70 and
    it's 350 was orange. Have a good friend that owns an original 1972 Cheyenne pickup with a 402. It is also orange.
    My 77 Suburban's 454 is blue.

    Ok, that explains the Johnny-Lightning on the bottom of the box. Never seen them before. Thanks

    Strange Boondocker Blazer on Ebay
    I have never seen a 69 Boondocker Blazer kit before. The model looks like the diecast that I believe was red on the box.
    Anyone ever seen this model kit? Could it be a 1-off box?  Very strange.

    Just received this in todays mail from good friend Robert Burns! I started building it around 1997 or so.
    I traded it off back then for a pile of model parts but regretted it ever since. I tried getting it back when it was
    sold to another modeler,but no luck. Robert ended up with it & gave it back to me. Looks like nothing has been done to it
    since I built it!
    I used 2 old MPC Dodge 4x4 pickups for the cab & bed. The top rear was made from a 1/24 Ramcharger 4x4 & some scratch building.
    Rear fenders started as 96 Chevy dually. I rescribed them to look more like the Dodge body lines.
    I do want to finish this one! Brad

    Couple more I forgot about. Mako Shark is complete but is a mess. The Falcon is a mess too,but I have some parts to
    make it complete again.


  11. Lordmodelbuilder added a post in a topic Organizing spare parts   

    I have always kept my spare parts in parts bins. I have had the one that is on the right side of this picture since the 70's & just recently found another
    that is very similar. I also have begun to put a bunch of models into zip-lock baggies if they are missing their original boxes.
    The other picture shows the custom wood cabinet my dad built for me in 1969. It has mostly bigger parts & tires in it now.
    Bruce, I love that old cabinet. What are it's dimensions?



  12. Lordmodelbuilder added a post in a topic Let's See Some Glue Bombs!   

    I inherited a bunch of models from a good friend a couple years ago. They were her dads and he built them in the early 60's and 70's. Many are kinda rare & I have a few of the original boxes as well. I have been able to repair a few of the lesser messed up models & have them on the shelf,but here's a few of the ones that I will be restoring.
    Some were built & then torn apart way back when like we all seemed to do,lol. I am lucky to have been able to locate most of the parts in his old parts bins & mine & also off Ebay.
    I promise to keep you posted on their progress. Brad
