    You can say that again Lee!  
    That is my one fear.  I don't have a problem with heights, claustrophobia, plane rides or any other phobia.  Just don't go near my eyes!

    Diversified Scalerz Show - Wayne NJ - Sept 30 2017

    Here's a great show you will not want to miss!  This is the 6th Annual Diversified Scalerz Model Car Meet and Contest to be held on September 30th in Wayne, NJ.   The Scalerz have done a great job in a smaller venue the past five years and are ready to step up to the big time!  This year's show will be at the Wayne  PAL Building  (same location as NNL East).   This year they have sold 20 vendor tables (so far!) so there will be neat things to buy, as well as 30 display tables of great models to view!
    This is a People's Choice Style contest.  There is no charge to display models so bring out all the models that you are proud to show off!  There are classes for everyone!
    For more info contact  Jorge Ramos at   jramos916@msn.com
    There are still a few vendors spots available.  Tables are only $35 this year.   Contact   modlcitizn@aol.com   for vendor information

    Thank you Allen!  I just PMed you my address!
    So here's some stuff!  I tried to pick items that I hadn't seen here before....

    Sealed kit
     

    Open but complete

    This is a finished promo with the soft top that goes up and down. I don't believe it's been out of the box.

    Chevy pickups (choose 1) sealed kits, but the '55 celo is a bit ragged on end.

    Polar Lights GTO  complete,  it's been out of the box.

    Flintstone Screechosorus.. caution this is a solid block of resin
     
    Pick one!

    I'll play...   Allen,  I will take the GMC pickup with the plow... as long as it has the plow with it.
    Please confirm and then I will put some stuff up!
    Thank you!

    I like that!  I once owned a Saab 95 wagon.  Fun little buggy with a 4 on the tree!

    agreed.  When we bought our house in PA, the home alarm system needed a land line so we got it one.  We never intended to hook a phone to the thing, we use our cell phones for everything.  Once I started working from home, I used the line to call into conference calls to keep the minutes off my cell.  Instantly this phone started ringing with pest calls.  Just out of curiosity I put an answering machine on it and we logged half a dozen calls a day.  On a phone that had never been used!   Now I just plug it in when I need to dial into a call.

    Wow! Lots of great work there.  I especially like your imagination in turning the earings and earing back plates into model parts!  Those hinges are genius!
  9. Tom Geiger added a post in a topic What Irked You Today?   

    I think this can happen innocently.  How many times have you been working on a project and rummaged through some model kits looking for a part?  And you always think you will remember that you stole the steering wheel or transmission out of that kit. But you won't!   I started putting half an old business card in the box  "took steering wheel" so I won't have to rely on my memory.   I'd suspect any opened box that was owned by a modeler because of this.  
    And it's difficult to check a kit down to the last part at a show.  Pretty much you look... body, interior, glass, chrome tree, tire, instructions and decals... check!  Then you get home and that dern steering wheel is missing!

    I think your truck looks great the way it is, I'd leave it alone.   I'd focus on finding another truck for your smooth side project.  With the different year grill, the two of them would look nice side by side.
    The Little Red Truck version was out not too long ago. Should be fairly easy to find an unbuilt one.. fresh kit to start with!

    Thanks Tom for the advise.  I do have a 1/25 scale ruler, one of my most used tools.   Since my wife works for the company and they let me drive it around the lot, I think they'll let me measure it off someday.   As of right now, at least having the correct chassis and front fenders is a huge head start on building something like this.

    I remember Child World.  Seems the locations were absorbed by Toys R Us.
    When I first got involved in models about 30 years ago,  right after Christmas Child World put all of their model kits on clearance.  They were like $2 each, so I went store to store and literally put the shopping cart under the shelf and just pushed all the models into it.  
    Ancient Trivia -  my signature model, my 1953 Ford  "Pyrites Padler" camper was one of those Child World close out kits.

    How would the Chevy hood match up with the Caddy body?

    Here's the SJS Details catalog I got with an order.  I don't see any wheels offered at all.
     
     

  15. Tom Geiger added a post in a topic Cuda,s 1/25 &1/24 Why not more 1/25   

    Yes, I had mentioned that before on the board.  I have both a Fireball 500 and one of the rare Valiant promos. I found some markings inside the body that would indicate that.
    The '66 Valiant promo had the wrong roof on it, so I surmize that the bulk of the promos were scrapped and the ones that exist were originally in Chrysler employee hands. I know of two that were sold with mention that they came from a Chrysler employee's collection
