  1. I won a couple sets of Larry's Porsche Fuchs wheels on eBay. Both service and product are A OK! John
  2. Some of the MPC 1970's Dodge van kits included these covers. Sets of four do show up on eBay every once in a while. John
  3. Man, I've been looking for the SMP24 Mangusta everywhere. John
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. I won on eBay a sealed AMT '75 AMC Matador X. Factory seal/wrap. Opened it. No chrome tree. John
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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

    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
  12. 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
  13. His reason why is on his YouTube page here. Too bad. He offered some killer AMC pieces. John
  14. *Very* interesting! Thanks for posting this. John
  15. 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
