  1. Very nice kits, most 2nd gens look good(except for the mid 70s, those bumpers were hideous). Im personally a third gen guy, but our cars are getting hard to come by for any generation.
  2. Hes right, Im interested to. i just dont have anything your looking for. Hang in there someone will come along looking for it.
  3. Very nice builds, I have an 85 trans am and a 88 formula in my garage. Beautiful to look at, shame they didnt really have any decent engines until the turbo 3.8.
  4. I have a few kits i am considering trading -32 ford(has piece glued to frame otherwise unbuilt) -69 camaro(new) -jeff gordon nascar(frame and engine have been glued, nothing painted) -grave digger( a few parts have been glued and started) -number 6 nascar(built and missing pieces, hood, front tires, windshield, possibly more missing) will consider pontiac kits( GTO, Firebird T/A, Fiero, Grand prix(88-96), nissan z kits(240/260/280, 350, 370), audi r8 hardtop, 57 plymouth fury, 57 chevy, paints, supplies, etc.
  5. awesome to see it opened up, when i was at HL i thought the kit was another snap together.
  6. looks cool so far, i had a 4th gen trans am kit and a viper kit set aside to do the same kind of build. this is great inspiration to get back to that soon.
  7. that carpet certainly does look bright, do you have pics of it in the car??
  8. love the karmann ghia's, they are very under appreciated compared to the bug. build looks awesome so far, Love the rim choice(have the 1:1 rims on my Trans am).
  9. yeah the bed will only be fitting 2 cars, if they were small like beetles it might fit 3. i haven't decided which GTO's will be on there yet, i think i have the three kits mentioned here. the instructions are kind of silly, but the part fitment is awful. in the pictures you can see the trailer plates do not line up because of how bowed they are, im going to try some glue and a clamp or two to see if i can make it straight. still working on some of the detail paint as well, anyone familiar with 1:1 trailers like this? should there be hoses or something for the wheels and brakes and such(brakes i assume yes). i was having a hard time finding a reference picture online.
  10. I've been on the forum for some time but i dont think ive ever posted any work. it can be a bit intimidating seeing how great some of the builds are here, but every build is a step forward and i figure a bit of feedback never hurts. so for starters im sure your thinking i put this in the wrong section and it should be in the trucks section, but the main focus of the build will not be the truck itself, but what the truck is hauling. ive started the dodge l-700 by lindberg, at least ive started the trailer lol. none of the pieces that should be flat, are actually flat. however ive made some minor progress. the rear axles and box is assembled, the rims are painted a dark matte brown. i will be following a similar color scheme to the box except in place of the red, ill be using matte brown. and in place of the green ill be using a metallic red.ill have to get some better pictures of the color. the truck will end up on a dio im slowly, slowly working on. and i believe the truck will be hauling 3 awesome GTO's, a 65,66,and 67. that is if all 3 will fit on the trailer, and if all 3 kits i have are the same scale and similar sizes.
  11. love it, i have an 85 t/a that im slowly getting back on the road. also building a scale version, the kits definitely have some....odd?... variations. the kit i used has the back seat molded in to the interior and the seats are squared off for some reason.
  12. Have the same kit in my stash(just have to strip some paint off), the two tone color schemes were always my favorite.
  13. This was my first car as well, Though mine was used. Has a 02 GTP 40th anniversary edition after that. Grand prix's are the best cars ive ever owned. love the build, its even the same color.
  14. whats holding the front tires on???
  15. very cool ive got an 85, 305 tpi auto, has around 57k.
  16. very nice looking kit, i wonder if we will be getting a 50th anniversary kit sometime soon.
  17. love it. i love 3rd gens(building a 1:1 in the garage at the moment), and this is a fantastic dio.
  18. love the wheels, are they from the 3rd gen trans am gta kit?
  19. great build, agree on the stance though. to much and your just hurting performance.
  20. very nice, i wish they put out actual kits of more pontiacs. it always seems to be the 60's-70's GTO, and the bandit style trans am, not that i dont love those cars but god BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH.
  21. ive seen cars from the 90's with more rust than that and im from pa, in md now. id say it looks pretty darn good. but those rust holes do look quite nice on it, or quite bad not sure if rust is ever really a good thing....
  22. great start on the build man, nice 1:1 as well. im working on an 1985 t/a myself, had the same idea to make a model of what i want it to look like one day. keeping an eye on this one!
  23. great looking build, i like the way the 1:1 looks just not fond of having such little power.
