  1. Years ago, our wall phone's little clip that held the earpiece on broke. It was a complicated shape, and the mfr wanted a high price for a replacement. I was able to make a workable piece by laminating sheet styrene.
  2. I went to the new Barkhampsted CT Ollie's yesterday, and was surprised to see model kits there. They had these kits for $9.99 and some trucks for $16.99. I bought the Gremlin. I also had a 15% off coupon that would have expired next week, so that worked out great.
  3. When I read the thread title, I always think "my sympathies".
  4. You have to love a mysterious woman of few words, who buys her husband cool model kits.
  5. It's Ollie-days 6/24 - 6/30. 15% off everything, no coupon needed.
  6. When Ertl owned AMT, the kits came with an invitation to subscribe to Blueprinter. If I remember it was a quarterly magazine, had model building tips and sometimes had special offers where you could buy (by Mail) limited production model kits. The kits came in a black and white printed shipping box, but were kits you couldn't usually get otherwise. The promo-style 1964 Galaxie 500 was one of these.
  7. What's the sedan delivery with the pointy front end (top pictures)? It looks cool.
  8. Thanks for posting this. I'll pray for him. And look at my own cruddy little problems in a new light.
  9. Mike, that's awesome! Looks just like mine, but w/o the bungie cord!
  10. I remember seeing commercials for these growing up. You pull on the blue "shifter" handle to propel the car around the track. You had to time it just right so the car was pushed along, rather than crashing into the pushing part,or missing it completely if you were too late. Cool find!
  11. I loved the above puns. I can't help but think it has a crate engine.
  12. Thanks for this thread. I thought I was the only one who couldn't get the Auto Cutter to work as advertised. The one I had included attachments with which you could simulate dents, battle damage, etc. Mostly all I produced was burns and toxic fumes!
  13. I've never found MCM at B & N in northern CT, but i bought one today at Canton CT. They had more! It made my day. And it's a good issue!
