  1. AMT and MPC Please Put Out Significant Kits

    ROfL! I’m enjoying this thread. Entertaining!!
  2. AMT and MPC Please Put Out Significant Kits

    What dilemma are you referring to? I thought you said race kits are what sells so that’s what they should be making. Given your favorable comments about the kit I am surprised you didn’t buy one Also, I hate to have to break the news, but this release of the kit does not have a clear body. It’s molded in petty blue. It was going to be clear, but I seem to recall that they couldn’t fully reverse mold changes made over the years and plastic wouldn’t flow into the mold properly to get a swirl-free clear body.
  3. Need help sourcing parts for an early sixties blown Chrysler

    My Miss Deal has a huge sink mark on the top of the scoop. I had to use a scoop from another kit.
  4. 66 IMPALA Late Model Sportsman

    That is nice!
  5. Milner's dragster decals?

    I’m not very familiar with the car, but this slixx sheet has part of what you need. http://www.slixx.com/8069.htm?id=5513

    I need some tools, tool chest and such and this looks good to me. As long as the price isn’t outrageous I’ll pick a set up.

    Regarding the AMT Lightning. I bought one when they came out, but I was never sure why. I am a serious builder, but when our friends’ boys got into rocket powered Estes cars, the dads decided to make their own with bigger engines, and the Lightning was my choice to soup up. And it turned out to be best engineered and the fastest! As it happens, I just harvested the seats to go into a Ford custom, and I think it’s got some other nice parts that may end up elsewhere.
  8. Ollie's strike again

    I forgot - they had Deoras and Silhouette a too.
  9. Super September Showdown Pics

    Thanks for posting. I saw elsewhere a '99 Mustang was chosen as Best in Show. Do you know if that one is the orange Mustang that you have a few pix of on the first page of pics? I was at the show and my personal favorite was the #43 Daytona Pro Mod. Thanks again for the pics!
  10. Ollie's strike again

    The Cherry Hill NJ store tonight had what is shown above except no 60 Vette. They also had the 1/20 Camaro, assorted Nascar, and the Revell prepaints and some Lindberg stuff from a few months back.
  11. Ollie's strike again

    OK, I need to hit Ollie's. The appearance of so much AMT/MPC stuff makes me wonder how much volume Round2 really sells at full price. They seem to have a lot of merch to liquidate, but maybe that is their business model - sell as much as possible at full price, then maybe (and I mean maybe) break even on what needs to get liquidated. They must have had waaay too many - they clearly didn't see a need to keep them in inventory to fill orders.
  12. AMT 40 willys what decals are in this kit ?

    Here you go! Hopefully the whole sheet shows - thumbnail looks chopped up.
  13. Chuck Boerner will be selling decals for the 73 Custom Body funny car. The car is painted as a Challenger but it is a Cuda body. I’ve attached a pic of the car and of Chuck’s decals. I’ve got an old Good Stuff Cuda body. Does anyone have an opinion as to whether that’s better, worse or the same as using the Competion Resins Cuda for this build?
  14. Rochester NY club

    There is a club in Fulton, NY. Its probably a bit far for you, but you should get in touch with them and see if they know of a club in Rochester. Here is a flyer from their show last year with some contact info on it
  15. News of Revell molding preparing in US

    I just want to be sure Miss Deal is in good hands!
