  1. Hey everyone - I recently purchased two kits from a seller at 2 different times. The first order (the '49 Merc Wagon from my previous post) arrived with water damaged decals, and sadly, the second kit arrived the same way. The seller is moving these for her dad and really knew nothing about the importance of the decals, so I'm not angry with her. I was able to get Tamiya kit 24047 - the Rothmans Porsche 956 LeMans car - for $15, which is a great price, but the decals were fused to the instructions. If anyone ever built this and maybe used a set of Studio 27 decals in place of the kit decals, I would be happy to purchase the leftover kit decals. If the sheet is intact, I will coat it with Microscale Decal Film and it should be fine. Let me know. Thanks!! I can buy a sheet online but I figured I'd check here first. Thanks!
  2. I got the kit for $16.99 at Ollie's so I'm really just building it for the fun of it. I didn't want to have to invest any additional money into it!
  3. I'll probably just use super glue, I was curious if there was anything that might be better. Thanks!
  4. If you're familiar with this Lindberg kit, you know that the tires come in halves. Does anyone have any suggestions for the best glue to keep these together? I have had similar tires in the past and styrene glue does not work so well. Thanks!
  5. Does anyone have a spare sheet that they're willing to part with? I purchased a kit from someone online and the decals and instructions are water damaged. This wasn't noted in the description. The kit is otherwise perfect and I can get by without the decals, but if anyone has a spare sheet, it would make life easier. Thanks!
  6. Thank you!! I suspected it was a Candy Apple red.
  7. 8th one down!!! Didn't realize there were so many.
  8. Can anyone recommend a color that best matches this? It looks like a Candy Apple Red to me, but I'm not sure. Thanks!!
  9. Ollie's strike again

    The funny thing is that they (the dragsters) were barely noticeable among everything else. I actually almost missed out on them.
  10. Are these Revell gassers just Decal kits ?

    I'm fairly certain that they're all the same.
  11. Ollie's strike again

    I found these in Cincinnati...
  12. Fun little "kid's model"

    Michael - Hobby Lobby only had this one for a short time. Did you get the Lexington or the B-17 Bomber? I wish they got more, but since I saw the Lexington discounted down to $6.50 recently, I suspect we won't be seeing more...
  13. Fun little "kid's model"

    This is from the Meng World War Toons line of tanks. This thing is tiny. The kit had a decent parts count, but was mainly just so much fun to build!
