    Possible box art for the Revell '30 Model A Coupe
    My apologies if this has already been posted. I found this on Hobby Link Japan's site and thought you all might be interested.

    Thanks! I needed to finish something. I've been away from the bench for too long.

    It only took 4+ months but I finally completed this very basic but also very fun kit. It is low on detail, but the end result is a nice model for the shelf! I recommend one, particularly if you have a 40% coupon. I should mention that it didn't take me 4 months to build it, life just kept getting in the way of any real modeling.

    Not every deal is great, but you can sometimes find a good one. I do have a Prime membership and yes, it helps.

    Dammit, I really need to stop logging in with the wrong ID.

    Always remember the wise words of Mr. Garrison as he addressed his South Park elementary school class:
    "Remember children, there are no stupid questions, just stupid people."

    Life's weird coincidences
    It's funny how sometimes things just seem to align perfectly and work out for you. I recently purchased AMT's '65 and '66 Riviera kits and wanted to get the '69. I found it at a local shop for $45 and also found a few on eBay for various prices. I occasionally check Amazon Warehouse Deals for good prices on kits, and scored a damaged box Aoshima chopper kit for much much less than I had seen it on other sites. I popped over today, checked for model kits, and lo and behold - an AMT '69 Riviera in damaged box for $21. How weird is that?? It was one of maybe 3 or 4 car kits currently available (there is a Surfite kit for about $20 also there).
    I have bought other items through Warehouse Deals. They're almost always damaged box items and in each instance, the contents themselves were absolutely fine. I recommend it to all of you as another option when looking for new kits!

  11. DanR added a post in a topic I kinda miss that classic look.   

    I felt like that finally happened by the end of the 90's / early 2000's. Even the Taurus and the Monte Carlo were distinct enough that you could easily tell them apart. I do like the current Camaros and Mustangs that they're driving - they're not entirely distinct, but I think they look pretty cool.

    I love this. Great job!!

    Moebius is really knocking it out of the park with everything they put out. I have to believe that Revell and Round 2 are recognizing this and I hope it leads to more risk taking on their part. I got tired of Mustangs and the same old GM and Mopar kites so many years ago.

    I just checked the email again. The #3 David Pearson is available as well as the #6 Cotton Owens.

    Southern Motorsports Hobbies already has some sheets for other versions of the '61 Pontiac.
