    Don't forget the Photo-etch
    Also from the New tooled kit
    I was buyint the Regular, Pro-Shop & Coca-Cola issues at Toys R Us for $3,50 or so
    back then
    And They were NOT suppose to have the Pro-Shop issue!!!!
    Still have one, and 3-4 of the Coke issue
    And I got the 100th Anniversary Tin at Extra Clearance from Hobby Lobby
    I did not have enough cash, and was going to leave it, but Manager said to make it Half the ticket
    I said it was already Clearance priced, that floor person said they did not have correct clearance stickers
    but, still said drop it.
    So I took the kit home for $8.oo +tax!!

    Yes, That is the hit
    Klinger's Fave spot back home in Toledo
    Packo's Hungarian Hot Dogs!!!
    Notice the difference
    Likely to save on royalty fees to MASH parent company
  3. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic AMT Matador X   

    This kit was NEVER an MPC kit!!!!
    AMT from the beginning to last issue
    I have the Stock 75 Annual issue of it!!
  4. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Please help identify   

    Yea. #1 are the Rudge rims from AMT's 300 SL Gullwing
    and #5 look like Buick Mags
  5. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic AMT Prestige '63 Corvette convertible   

    I have the Prestiege kit too
    Need to dig it out and plan on her!!
    And NO the Photo-etch was Not included in the kti
    A Previous owner added that to it. You got lucky that way

    I have a 60 Convert I bought from Joe Wheat MANY Years ago
    Shortly after his Resin kits were announced in that Other mag.
    Too bad the only Resin he offers now are Built Painted and not kits!!
    Sadly though covered in THICK paint that I did strip, the 3 trim pieces in the right front fender
    insert were sanded down, and need to be replaced!!!
  7. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic AMT American LaFrance Aero Chief   

    Changing the cab from a 1000 to a 900 is easy
    Minor trim differences only
    The chrome panel at the bottom front of the cab 
    (where the front bumper mounts) is Painted not chrome
    and most 900's had paired lights in the upper bezel
    instead of the oval arrow's in the kit (and on 1000's)
    as for cutting down tp an open cab, Do NOT cut the jump seat area
    sides level with the door windows. That area should match the height of the firewall/radiator cover
    section of the jumpseat interior piece
    Lindberg's kit listed as 1/32 but smaller (1/35??1/37?) shows this
    I read (I believe at the Scale Firehouse forums the old Aurora 1.32 Headlight bezels
    Sadly LONG out of production (--I have a few and could offer a set for resin casting)
    would be correct for the upper marker lights on the 900
    I have also seen some simply glue 2 lenses to the kit piece
    I believe the other noticable difference is the Eagle on the American LaFrance logo
    was a 1000 series original.
    Some late 900's may have gotten them,
    others had the added afterward

    I thought the Instruction site there was Down
  9. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic AMT American LaFrance Aero Chief   

    Wish they would retool the clear red and Amber lenses for these!!!!!
    I have an original unbuilt, but may look at the re-issue depending on price
  10. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic AMT and MPC new releases for 2016   

    I wonder if they do it will they Block off all the Custom parts.
    The Firechief version was basically Stock Only,
    It did include the tri-deuce type aircleaner though
    I used it as an emergency light for the grill on one build
  11. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic AMT and MPC new releases for 2016   

    Actually, The Fire Chief Can be built already.
    The Light rack, Strobes, Siren, flashers, even Radio equipment
    are All Identical to those parts from the 70 Ford Police Cruiser!!!!
    I have 2 of the Impala Fire Chief, and 4+ of the Ford Police, so I can verify that!
  12. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic any body have experience with 1/32 PYRO kits?   

    I want to say the at some time the Pyro/Life-Like/Lindberg 1/32 kits DID have Chrome
    I have a few of the 32 Fords & Chevy's and they do have chrome
    IF I can find them I will take pics.
    I want to say the chrome was more of an Aluminum look than Bright chrome
    but they weer plated not painted
    Also I think those issues came with Blue tint clear including those with headlight lenses
    It has been A LONG time, but....................................
    I have passed the Lindberg re-issues at Ollie's as they were the same $7.99
    that the 1/25 kits were
    And while the 1/25 got marked down over time, the 1/32 did not!!!
  13. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic multiple projects   

    Example, Pair of Prestiege issue 63 Galaxie's started when the sseries First came out!!
    One converted to convertible
    MANY Others including the 65 Tempest/:Le Mans wagon!!!!
    Not planning 64, 66 & 67 Tempest/Le Mans (GTO) Wagons!!!!!
  14. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Kenworth W-900 Wrecker   

    I built the Volvo F12 Globetrorrer Way Back in the 80's
    I believe that was also a US kit first then RoG. Same might be true of the 
    Mercedes COE (Still want that one!!!)
  15. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic AMT Retro Deluxe '53 Studebaker Customizing Kit   

    Tires look like their Firestone Supremes
    Not a Good Early 50's tire
    Should have been the Deluxe Champions with Wide-White tampo
