      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Wonder if it'll still include the custom option (body kit, ducktale wing, etc) from Matchbox Street Machine issue, which was also carried over to the 1990s reissue?
    Since the MPC Datsun monster truck is out, lets hope the 82 Celica isn't too far down the line.

    The repoped Datsun monster truck is MPC, which makes me hope the Celica and a few others aren't too far down the line.

    At least that would be better than the $45-70 i've seen them normally fetch (including the 1990s reissue, which I was fortunate enough to nab at $20 back in June)

    Of course, when I just nabbed a Matchbox issue of the custom version for $15 ata show today, NOW THEY'RE PLANNING TO RE RELEASE IT!
    All we need is the MPC 82 Toyota Celica to release (sure the molds still exist complete) and the 80s Japanese sports car trio with the 280zx and the Monogram RX7 will be finish!  What would also be nice to see if the molds exist, and are in good shape, is the MPC Toyota 2000 GT convertible as that hasn't been seen in a long time, plus they could brand it as an 007 product (the car was in YOLT) to increase sales potential.
    Also wouldn't hurt to repop the F&F Supras while they're at it, branded as Bomex and Veilside kits respectively if they cannot get the F&F licence (hey, they're rereleasing stuff they put out almost 10yrs ago, so whats so wrong about releasing Supras without the F&F branding?

    25th Anniversary L.I.A.R.S Model Car Show and Swap Meet - Saturday 11/12
    I don't know if any our fellow islanders have post anything yet and I'm not the one in charge of it, but it doesn't seem like anyone mentioned it already so I'll go ahead. 
    Just a heads up about our show/swap meet to those who are in east coast or near New York. Its next Saturday November 11 at Freeport Recreational Center, 130 East Merrick Road, Freeport, NY from 9:00 AM-4:00 PM. This is the 25th anniversary of our club, the Long Island Automotive Society (L.I.A.R.S), and we will be having a special anniversary theme that is any car painted Tamiya Silver Leaf TS-30 and with a 2 or 5 in the make year (eg. car is from 1962, 1965, the 20's, the 50's, etc).
    More info including directions and contest rules are explained on our downloadable PDF fliers here: http://www.liarsmodelcarbuilders.com/#!events
    For those who are on Long Island and want to have something to do on Thursdays, we meet every third Thursday of the month at the Henrietta Acampora Recreational Center on 39 Montauk Hwy, Blue Point, NY.  If interested, contact Rich Argus @ r.argus@juno.net
    Hope to see some of you at the show!

    That may have been a few years ago, recently I saw one selling for $50 sealed and the original 1992 snap-tite issue was $40 from ModelCarMountian, yet I paid abour $20 for mine at Daves back almost 10 years ago.
  7. RickRollerLT1 added a post in a topic Revell 2017 Releases   

    Have two of them, but the Revell one holds a place in my heart as its one of the 1st builds at a time when my skills were starting to improve. I got the 1999 issue at Daves Hobby in Freeport as it was the only place I ever saw one there (at the time). After moving around and such, its in pieces but is almost complete for a resto as i'm missing the suspension and dashboard.
  8. RickRollerLT1 added a post in a topic Revell 2017 Releases   

    Bummer  Looks like the sky high ebay prices will rule once again.
    At least the RX7 is still happening, so far.
  9. RickRollerLT1 added a post in a topic Revell 2017 Releases   

    I'm still scratching my head as to why they leaked instructions for a kit that seemed to be never released. Anyone know Ed Saxtons email address? He would be the one to know if the NSX is still planning to be released, but bits got leaked early, or was planned but somehow canceled.
  10. RickRollerLT1 added a post in a topic Revell 2017 Releases   

    Is there any other information regarding this kit? I saw a 2015 copyright, so I hope it wasn't something that got canceled, or maybe they're pushing it to a different date. Hopefully, the Mazda Miata, 93 Civic and Civic hatchback aren't too far from being announced.

    The BM Corvette was last seen as the California Wheels Corvette coupe, and had almost all the BM parts with a few extras, but with exception of the goodyear tires (mags were still on the tree though) and decals. I suspect this will be a 2 in 1 repop of the Cali Wheels but with the correct wheels + tires and decals restored for Baldwin Motion car.

    Tower says late January for the RX7, not too long of a wait since I got a backlog of stuff to tackle at!
  13. RickRollerLT1 added a post in a topic Revell 2017 Releases   

    Dat 78' Mazda RX7... NUFF SAID! When's the street date? 
    My dad built one back in the day but its in pieces and Ebay prices are completely insane.
    Normally, I only buy one new kit because of current SRPs, but this is an exception as I will get 3 of them one to keep mint in case the value shoots up again.
    They and Round 2 are killing it with the rereleases of the 70s era Japanese cars. I hope we get some of the later stuff like the MPC 82 Toyota Celica and the AMT Datsun 280zx turbo from R2. Revell should bring back out the snapper Acura NSX and the really nice Mazda Miata w/ engine (both are going for real crazy dough on the 'bay). While at it, they should also repop the 99 Honda Civic hatchback and 93' Civic coupe under the F&F moniker.

    Black is easy peasy to prime without bleedthrough unlike reds.
    I do have my eyes on the Datsun pickup. Since all that issue has is 4x4 monster truck suspension stuff, a street custom can be still made from it.
  15. RickRollerLT1 added a post in a topic A reasonably SERIOUS new-tool '70 Charger Revell is hiding in plain sight...   

    Even though this rendition dosen't reflect a "real' 70 R/T going by the 69 rear (for now until an SE 2 in 1 comes out sooner or later), at least all the non R/T/SS guys can get creative and make their plain jane 318 cars with the F&F kit instead of moanin about things. 
    Gotta agree with Alex, the griping and personal attacks are the reasons why I'm not on here often. People cannot be thankful for anything and gripe if the smallest thing is wrong or not right (though the 90 Mustang LX roof is still kinda funky while the monograms made in the 80s/90s got it closer). I dealt with the madness on CLG (Closing Logos Group) Wiki with the trolls and users who think rare logo findings are fake and demote everyone, but now i see these people are all over the internet.
