I have bought a couple of them just for the boat. And then sold or traded away the Grand Prix because IMO that is a pretty ugly car and I know what I would never build it. I have enough cool subject matter that I may not get to to keep the ones I know I will never build.
I think the tooling for the boat is still around. Isn't that basically the same boat as the one that was recently rereleased by the model king in a double kit with the 70(?) Pontiac Grand Prix? Is the tooling from that boat (the MK version) a modified version of the original raysoncraft ski/drag boat from way back when or is that a completely different boat kit?
When I got mine the guy from touch-n-flow told me that you had to put the non hypodermic end in the bottle of glue and let capillary action pull the glue up into the tube. then turn it over and let the glue flow down the glass tube to the hypodermic end. The plast-I-weld glue that comes with the touch and flow system I use for 90 percent of my glueing now. it is very very thin almost water like consistency and it actually melts the parts together for a permanent bond. if the hypodermic tip happens to clog with plastic (very common) I was told just put the hypodermic and in the glue for a couple of minutes and it will clear it. As Ace said some of them come with a little squeeze bottle to force air into the tube. that is also helpful for clearing a clogged tip.I have also found that sometimes when the glue gets down to the hypodermic end it does not want to flow easily out of the tip, I give it a slight flick with the end of my finger and that seems to get the glue down to the very tip.
I'd be happy if they were to release all of the main body and interior parts (minus the fender/frame unit) as a parts pack. Just make those parts available and I'll do the rest. I'd buy at least a case of them.
The kit supplied chrome reverse rims fit very nicely into the tires from any of the Revell Deuce kits. Those tires are much nicer than the kit supplied ones. In addition the modelhaus also has those Revell deuce tires recast with whitewall inserts. They look great with the chrome reverse wheels supplied in the deuce roadster kit you are working on.
The camper from the vintage box art reissue of the 65 elcamino is the same camper that was in the "Elcamino Camper" issue of the 59. AFAIK that was the only boxing of the 59 to have the camper shell included. The vintage box art reissue of the 65 elcamino has both the camper shell and the bed cap included in it.
I have worked on this one. The owner (and editor of Canadian Hot Rods Magazine) is friends with the owner of one of the shops I worked for. It came in for some work to be done for an article in the magazine. The front clip is a one piece fiberglass lift off unit. Cool car.
