  1. De Tomaso Mangusta

    Man, I've been looking for the SMP24 Mangusta everywhere. John
  2. Chevy Rally Wheels

    Scale Equipment LTD sells excellent sets of those '68(and later) Chevy wheels. Each wheel consists of three pieces: center cap, rim and trim ring. This makes detail painting easier and more realistic. The center cap and trim ring come already chrome plated. John
  3. VW Beetle Aftermarket Performance Parts?

    Scott, Take a look at the completed auctions for eBay user: finksgarage As late as May he listed a VW "high detail engine kit". John
  4. Always. Open. The Box.

    I won on eBay a sealed AMT '75 AMC Matador X. Factory seal/wrap. Opened it. No chrome tree. John
  5. Story of Jo Han models.

    The Coupe de Ville kits (red car on the box) were available in those three model years. As far as I know, the graphics on the kit boxes did not give up what model year kit was inside. John
  6. SMP24 Resin Lamborghini Espada

    Fumi, I saw your post on the Model Car Magazine forum (see above). I was thinking that if you know where to find rare SMP24 kits, you might know where I can obtain a Hobby Design Mercedes-Benz SLR Roadster Conversion kit (photo attached). I've been looking on-line for a long time without success. I'll appreciate any information you might have. I'm in the US. Thank you! John Sharisky
  7. Canadian Hobby Shops

    I just now posted on the Spotlight Hobbies forum regarding some Tamiya items that I ordered from this Canadian vendor: Sunward Hobbies in Toronto John
  8. Mopar plate decal 1/25

    The background is indeed a nice soft silver (sometimes called "argent" by the car makers). I think the font is interesting. I'd gladly pay for nice, clean decals of various model years. John
  9. Mpc Cuda hood

    Competition Resins offers a Cuda stock hood (flat). It's from the MPC kit. It's white resin and a very good casting. John
  10. Ukrainian Scale Cars Production (USCP)

    I've purchased from USCP wheel sets, the BMW M5 update kit (for the Fujimi M5 kit) and the Mercedes big sedan update kit (for the Tamiya 600SEL). All good. No issues, no problems. I've e-mailed regarding their long ago proposed Mercedes 300SL Roadster trans-kit for the Tamiya Gullwing kit. I was told that it was now on the "back burner". Nuts. I hope that this isn't a very early indication of USCP being a victim of their own success. Regarding ordering from overseas, I've learned not to count the days. It'll get here when it gets here. It always has. On another note: USCP is one of two vendors that I purchase from that had announced they were no longer going to sell their wares on eBay. Both are selling on eBay again. Looked at as the sales conduit that it really is, one cannot seriously overlook or deny the audience that eBay brings to cottage businesses. John
  11. Dodge Monaco to Plymouth Fury parts?

    His reason why is on his YouTube page here. Too bad. He offered some killer AMC pieces. John
  12. Laser Stripes for 73' Dodge Charger

    *Very* interesting! Thanks for posting this. John
  13. Pontiac five spoke rally II wheels.

    My preference is for the Scale Equipment LTD wheels also. Rick's set with the separate (already chromed) trim rings have a more correct depth that the MPC wheels never had. John
  14. Air Trax

    Contact Tapani Rauramo at: raurata@yahoo.com There are no decals included in the Cordoba/300 kit. John
  15. 71-2 Pontiac Ventura question

    I have one and it's very nice. I prefer it over one from Time Machine Resin that I've had for a while. Any variance between the two (there might be others) will only be in the castings as these are straight re-pops of styrene kit parts. Jeff at Firebird Designs is offering Ventura II "Sprint" decals from his on-line store HERE and also on eBay. For Rally II wheels, I always like to plug Rick at Scale Equipment LTD for their two-piece white resin wheels with separate, already chromed, trim rings. John
