  3. bob paeth added a post in a topic I think this one applies for us modelers....   

    Wen the Slant Six from R evell was completed a group of
    Revell employees met at a service station in El Monte Califoenia to test is out..It was fully assembeled
    with the valve cover left off. The electric motor ( a drill ) was then attached to the tailshaft AND TURNED ON. "The RPM's of the motor were slowly increased an the engine finely broke down when it it an eccess of 11,000 RPM. This was accomplised by not using the radiator. I big pile of oil cans, with their lids off,were dumped onto the engine while it was running ( neatness didnt count ). The only reason why the engine finaly failed was the fact that the camshaft had snapped in two.

    I am surprised that card playing is not prominent in our other hobbies. I consider myself a cardshark for sure. My three most favorite games are hearts, spades and cribbage. I do play other card games, just as I build customs and drag cars but I do have favorites.

    I must agree with all of the negative thoughts on the subject of bringing back all of the old kits. What I find surprising is the nonchalant thoughts of the companies such as AMT and Revell in keeping track of the molds. To duplicate these molds, in todays economy, would be in the neighborhood of $250,000 ( $50,000 ) back in the 1960,s )

    Looks like I am the second oldest one here. M408 has be beat by about 2 years, I am 73. Can anyone beat me on the amount of years on modeling ? I started when I was 3 years old.

    Back in the middle 60's Revell offered a WW II german fighter plane model with the proper swastika design in the decal sheet. They were immediately flooded with letters complaining about the use of the swastika. Revell, bowing to the public's concern, changed the decal sheet to eliminate the swastika. That done, Revell received even more letters of complaint about the model not being authentic because of the deletion of the swastika. The letters in favor, out numbered those who were against and once more the decal was changed to be correct. DAMNED IF YOU DO AND DAMNED IF YOU
    DON'T. You can't change history. If a decal has something you don't like,..................don't buy the kit or at the very least, throw the dacal in the waste basket.

  14. bob paeth added a post in a topic anybody build the testors/imc 48 ford?   

    This is an old kit and the mold is wearing out. Everytime it is re-released ( different manufacturer or just offered again ) the parts fit shows problems. The original IMC kit was great with little problem in the "parts fitting" catagory. The biggest problen that I had on my last build was the fit between the hood and the windshield cowl area. It was fixable but took a little effort. Generally it is a good kit and worthy of the efforts needed to complete it.
