      Unfortunately, we were unable to upgrade the board software due to some technical difficulties. We will try again once we get the problems worked out.

    From Revell-Monogram:  http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0095p?FVPROFIL=&FVSEARCH=851472
    Kits look good and the price is right in line with other snap kits. Plan on ordering several!

    As with any model that was ever produced or thought of or dreamed of....true modelers will take what they have at hand and do something with it. Whether it's a snap tite or a Tamiya, doesn't make any difference....we will make them into what we want, be it a current cup car or a fictional one. Some on here said that it's not a Chevy/Toyo so I ain't buyin it....so be it.....leaves more for the rest of us. But!!  Like it was also said, you don't buy, don't bitch when they cancel all of them and your stuck with another shoulda - coulda - woulda situation.
    Me?  I'm going to buy a few of them...i'll probably pull out the older chassis that I have and modify them to fit....maybe.....maybe i'll hang on to them and not touch them for a while...then if the "I don't / I won't" guys start crying then they can't get one, i'll sell them....maybe....depends on how much they cry.
    Face it guys....we build models for fun, not money...otherwise I wouldn't be sitting behind this computer day after day inputting code for somebody else to get a paycheck and make a living so that I can afford to buy them!
    Give it a break...bottom line? don't like them...don't buy them....
    oh....and just to give ya all a little thought input....imagine....Chase Elliot driving a current Ford with Dad Bill's old Coors sponsor?  I've met and raced with Bill and Chase when he was growing up....couldn't ask for a nicer family and a nicer young man.....wish him luck this season to defend his championship and going forward next year....

    don't matter what is produced, as any true modeler will attest, we'll take them, modify them to any extent we want and call the build done. whether it's out of the box, mild or wild....we all take things as they are and make do. here we are being given a chance to decide and hopefully the model buying public will respond in kind. whether it's stock, drag, oval, road course or out of this world....we are modelers first and foremost...

    for the negatives voices? keep listening to them negative voices in your head....while your on the fence deciding which voice to listen to, I'm going to be buying me a few new nascar models and changing them to fit my tastes!

    Super Nice!!! The "A" frame was part of the front suspension with the lower "legs" attached to the front suspension and the top of the "A" was attached to the transmission cross member....but y'all did a great job putting it all together!
