    Pretty low, Harry.
  2. Modelmartin added a post in a topic Cars with wings, cars with fins, how about "GULL-WINGS" ?   

    many of these gull wingers remind me of the old saying, "Just because you can does not mean you should!"
  3. Modelmartin added a post in a topic OK this is kool: 3D printed 1/24 VW Notchback Kustom   

    The Monogram Sand Crab, released later as the L'il Van has a T3 motor in it.
  4. Modelmartin added a post in a topic What did you see on the road today?   

    I once saw some broken chunks of granite counter top laying in the center of the Freeway! About 3 miles later I passed the guy hauling the rest of the counter to the job site. He didn't appear to know that about a third of it was broken off and laying on the highway. Ooops.

    Esci also did the BMW M1 and several others in clear, possibly the 320 Gr. 5 and the Lancia.

    Didn't AMT have a clear hood on the 37 Chevy?

    I was talking to Jim Keeler once, he mentioned that one evening at Revell they ran about a dozen Mickey Thompson Challengers in clear! Imagine finding one of those now! I asked - he didn't have any of them.
  6. Modelmartin added a post in a topic What do these bumpers look like to you?   


    ^^^^^ Yes. It is very easy to do and those are simple shapes. I think you would find it easier and cheaper than trashing another kit in an effort to make something else fit.
  7. Modelmartin added a post in a topic Little Known Car Facts # 6 Brodie knobs / Suicide Knobs / Neckers Knobs   

    I have heard them called "Necker's knobs".

    Thanks, Tim. was that a real Cord? It looks like the real deal.
  9. Modelmartin added a post in a topic What Kits Were Molded in Green?   

    Revell California Roller VW panel truck. It was still green after 2 coats of primer!!!
  10. Modelmartin added a post in a topic and now, Virtual Models   

    Silly to an extreme! What's next? Virtual breathing?
  11. Modelmartin added a post in a topic Another car never kitted, much less mentioned   



    Reminds me of Madeline Kahn in Blazing Saddles, " The feeling is MOO-TWUL!"
  12. Modelmartin added a post in a topic More Certain   

    I would not hold my breath for anything to happen. It was a cool car and the golden memeories are just that - memories. It sounds like Mr. Scott is wistful for better times.
  13. Modelmartin added a post in a topic And the U.S. Postal service wonders why they are losing money.   

    UPS, FedEx and any other outfits offering package delivery would go bankrupt instantly if they were required to deliver a letter anywhere in the United states for 45 cents!

    I have had consistently excellent results with the USPS and nothing but hassles with UPS and Fedex.
  14. Modelmartin added a post in a topic Show me your cars with wings   

    Wing and a propeller and it isn't an airplane!

    Front drive!



    No wing but it is the same meme.

    Rear drive.

    Friday as I was leaving work I saw this in the parking lot. It belongs to one of the design engineers in the automation group. He enjoys the retro technology. It does have tubular hydraulic shocks on it. It's a very nice driver and not a concours car.
