    Not sure how I missed this thread before today.
    Terry, I love every one of your projects. Can't wait to see some of them finished.
    Really makes me want to drag out my old big rigs & build!

    I recently inherited the same old MPC kit. I think it's a 1933,not 32. Mine is complete & will be rebuilt also. Keep us posted. Brad

    Nice build! That black finish looks a mile deep. I built a mild custom version of this kit last year and it did have a bunch of sink marks that needed attention.

    Beautiful build! Looks so real. Love the weathering! Are those BRM wheels available online?
  5. Lordmodelbuilder added a post in a topic 60's econoline truck in 1:25th?   

    The early Econoline vans/vanups were produced from 1961-1967. The Mid Ford Econolines, body style changed to the one like the Motor City Resin kit in 1968 and stayed like that thru 1974.
  6. Lordmodelbuilder added a post in a topic What are your 2016 building plans.   

    That is a good question.
    My plans are to rebuild a bunch of my now junker models I built growing up. I have never thrown anything out & have been piecing together all the models I tried to destroy over the years.
    Also, I have a few early 60's models that were given to me in various states of disrepair. I want to rebuild all of these too.
    Guess I am on a nostalgia trip this year.

    The AMT Chevy vans all had them. Here's a pic of them on a 72 pickup I did.

    Nice build. Brings back good memories. That was the 1st truck & trailer kits I built when they came out in the 70's.

    If I won the Powerball tonight, I would disappear,but before I did, I would head to Utah & get the new International Model Car Builder's Museum built.

    I looked on Ebay & the 65 is in fact the AMT kit.

    Couple 60's Mopar kit questions
    I inherited a bunch of old models & parts a few years ago & since I am not a Mopar guy, I have some questions about a
    couple models. First is the white 1965 Dodge Coronet 500. It appears to be missing the stock front grill,bumper & some trim
     between the rear taillights. It has a screw chassis & I do believe it to be an old AMT kit. Is there any kit that I can steal the
    missing parts from?
     
    The second kit is a 1964 Plymouth Fury 440. Not sure if it's an AMT or maybe JoHan kit. It has a broken rear bumper & I will be needing a replacement.
    Found the hood scoop in the parts. Would it go with either of these Mopars?
    Last is the old screw chassis. Any idea what kit it might be from? Thanks for any help. Brad

  13. Lordmodelbuilder added a post in a topic Is this too many models   

    When I was younger, I used to think you could never have too many model kits. My late wife never complained about my collection and contributed to it whenever she could. Now that I am back building models after a 10 year or so hiatus, I do think I have too many kits. Never going to get them all built. Your collection looks small to me so I would say no, you do not have too many models. Build,build,build!
  14. Lordmodelbuilder added a post in a topic I have an issue..... ANYONE?????   

    The stock rims in any of the old MPC Dodge 4X4 kits are 3/4" and also the 8-spoke rims in the older MPC Jeep Commando measure 3/4".
     



  15. Lordmodelbuilder added a post in a topic What was your first truck model?   

    I built my first semi truck model in 1971. It was the AMT Watkins W925 Kenworth & Watkins refer trailer. The truck & trailer were repainted 2 times back then. I still have both of them in pieces today. One day they will get rebuilt.
    The first pickup truck model I built was in 1974 and was Revell's 1956 Ford F100. That model got rebuilt & painted 3 times and I still have it today. I also have purchased the same kit to build like the 2 early versions I built way back when.
