  1. Foose '56 Ford F100 Revell

    Thanks for the comments folks! I'm working on another one of these I got that showed up surprisingly at AC Moore. The next one is gonna be truly OOB but the body color will be something other black, so stay tuned...
  2. Mostly OOB, only change swapped wheels from the '48 Caddy onto this (originally, I was going to strip them down and repaint them, but after seeing the purple pond take off the red trim on the wheel without getting the chrome oddly enough I changed plans). Paint is Tamiya TS-20 Metallic Green cleared with Pledge with Future. Apologies for the spotty lighting in a white bookshelf, this is only makeshift till I get things in order since I moved into a former siblings room months ago since I got anything done and still setting up.
  3. Our Michael's is a joke

    It depends, some Michael's stores have a little bit more selection and can get random kits on occasion (Years ago some stores has tons of GMC Syclones and one of the local ones I went to recently had a Baja Bronco along with the stock Bronco, one 85 Olds FE3X lumped together with the 83 Hurst 442s and a bunch of Revell '70 Chargers R/T stock versions lumped with the F&F version). Ditto for AC Moore though due to the way they their selection priced as an assortment (rather than grouping each kit with a certain price like Michael's and HL does) they have even more random kits than those two combined at times. At various AC Moores on occasion I've seen some recent releases at various the LHS's normally carry like the new '67 Camaro, Mazda Miata, 49 Merc Woodie, Sox and Martin 70 Plymouth Hemi Cuda, '62 Corvette 2 in 1, 1/25 Kenworth K-100 Aerodyne, and some Round 2 reissues like MPC 69 AMX, '79 Ford Pinto Wagon, DOH Dasey's Road Runner, AMT Camaro and Corvette snaps, and PL kits like the Batmobile and BTTF Deloreans.
  4. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    Wouldn't surprise me if Amazon ended up buying Revell-o-gram since they're also planning to buy some TRU stores. I'd imagine if that were to happen it would be another hit for the retail market and the end for brick and mortar LHS's and craft stores. TBH, I prefer going through an LHS or craft store to get kits and paints since I get to see what they look like instead of receiving the product totally different from the image on Amazon (rare but happens on occasion since they clump together descriptions in such sloppy fashion) and in most cases Amazon is a little bit more for kits especially OOP ones.
  5. dose toys r us have model kits?

    I do indeed remember the cardboard isle displays TRU had for various AMT kits and PL pre painted kits like 65 Cornet and 04 GTO about 12 years ago. Some locations back around 7 years ago had sections near the die cast cars for Revell Snap-Tites but they were the evergreen ones like PT snoozer and VW bug with SRPs of 27.99 IIRC, which was absurd when the craft stores had the same kits less than that at SRP and even cheaper with coupons. Last my Dad and I went to the nearest TRU about a year ago (out of his curiosity for spotting any 1/64th Greenlight diecast trucks on deep markdown), only two models I saw near the diecasts were the AMT Ghostbusters Ecto 1 and a Revell F&F 1999 Honda Civic. They didn't have any clearance stickers but yet the Ecto 1 rung up 22.99 on clearance while the Civic was 19.99 clearance, which was more than HL had for them with ether 40 off coupons or when HL marked them down to around 8.75. Funny how Toys R Us griped about competition and Amazon causing their demise, yet poor business decisions (including a buyout that led to piling on debt) and cooperates taking the money and running for the gold jets and Las Vegas trips also didn't help ether.

    many tide pods
  7. Back to the Furture DeLorean, Polar Lights or Aoshima?

    I got the PL kit in my massive backlog. Since I used its time machine parts on a "custom what if" using a Monogram Fiero GT a while back, I will attempt to turn the Delorean into a stock mild custom or similar.
  8. RX-7 racer

    Love these!

  12. Looking for the engine from Tamiya BMW 320i

    Couldn't you take a different route and just make it some wack street custom with ether a ZR1 supercharged or Boss 302 Coyote motor?
  13. Revel Ford GT Le Mans 2016

    The street versions already out, it's the SnapTite. Unless they see sales are impressive enough given the state of their parent owner, I don't see them tooling up another stock version from this full detail tool when the snap has been out for a while.
  14. Grab those bargains off those racks... (HL sale)

    I don't have a Meijer store in NY, but the prices you mention aren't that hot anyway, since I got an RX7 from a local vendor a while back for 15 sealed but ended up missing a part which was a whole 'nother story.
  15. Grab those bargains off those racks... (HL sale)

    Anyone see the Revell '78 RX7 and Miata on clearance last there? I wanna stock up on those case they go OOP quick like the last issues of the Datsuns.
