  1. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Photobucket   

    I don't have to download my pics from there
    I have them on a Thumb-Drive
    All I have to do is set up folders like I have there, and fill them
    then just close out the photosucking account.
     
    I never understood the moving of pics to a server like that and Dumping them from your own storage close at hand!!
    How do you replace lost pics without having the original??????
  2. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic OK, Revell's giving us another crack at the '30 coupe soon   

    Well,
    I have mostly Ignored these kits
    Until Stock versions come out, I will PASS all
    I just don't care that much for Custom ONLY kits!!
     
    Sad to hear that Revell is passing the Buck as it were!
     
  3. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Revell '64 Fleetside (Out of Box) + info needed   

    One problem with the Fleetside bed in this and the 66 kits
    As molded it is a Stepside bed with Fleetside type fenders added
    They should have molded the bed in separate parts like the AMT/MPC 67-72 kits!!
    But Cut corners here
    I cut my Fantom Cameo Bed apart to make a more accurate Fleetside.
    Still it Is a Nice kit
    I want the 2 66 kits, and at least 1 more 65 to build a Stepside out of
    Mine is getting the Model King Open Road Mini-Motor Home body!!!
    YES, I had to stretch the chassis!!!!
  4. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Haven't seen anything new in this series   

    Built one myself
    Never had a problem with their Multi-Piece bodies
    Have 3-4 of the 59 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner
    Built the first in 74-75 when first re-issued!!
    Restoring that one
    Started a Skip's issue, but sold it last year
    Need to start another like that
    Opening doors, Steering, Continental kit, FULL Deluxe treatment!!!
    Just Finding a Color CLOSE to the Sunset Coral Ford painted them in 59!!
    (Close to the color Rev molded the 2 runs of the Skip's kit in!!)
    Want the US SSP issue molded in White
    I have the Rev-Gremany 50th Anniversary kit molded in Green
    They marked the box Correctly as a Fairlane 500
    But Rev-US still calls it a Galaxie
    Look Closely FAIRLANE 500 Script on BOTH Rear fenders!!!!
    AMT Annual was a Galaxie!!
     
    I would happily have a few more of the Rev 59/60 Vette kit!!!!
  5. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Best 57 Ford   

    The EDSEL Chassis Should work
    BUT Modern Tool vs Old tool.
    I have both so can try
    BUT
     
    Digging out both kits to try!!!!
     
     
  6. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Can we see some scratchbuilt things?   

    Those Twinsonics look Fantastic
    And 'X' shape Half Mirrors versus full height forward facing ones!!!!!!
    No department using them near me had the 'X' Half-height mirrors on them!!!!
    ONLY Ever saw ON in Cranberry area of Pennsy. WAY BACK when!!!!!
    Rt 19 BEFORE I-79 was more than Dream, only Partially built, Under Construction!!!!!
    Mid 70's!!
  7. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic 1966 Suburban Unboxed...   

    Hood is the same 4 piece as in the 3 Pickup kits
    Engine, Chassis, Engine bay, Grill insert, suspension are ALL the same
    I can see that
    in the pics above
    I have 2 of the 64, and a 65!!
    No 66 yet, but..............
     
  8. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Fairmont question   

    Nice, Hope they decide to re-issue that series soon
    HOPE they STILL have them!!!!
     
     
  9. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic An Obscure Indy 500 Kit   

    Be advised too
    That Lindberg "Indy" kit is NOT Styrene, but TOY plastic!!
    Think Korris car, Aurora Plastics, etc
    I know, I had one way back when!!!
     
    IF they re-issue it PLEASE do so in Styrene!!
    I think is it some where around 1/20-1/18 scale
     
  10. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic 3-D printer file question   

    Not 3d Print
    But I know if a few PAPER printout coffins
  11. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Purple Pond Surprise!   

    Yes, NEVER use a Metallic container!!!
    Use the CHEAPEST Plastic one you have!!!
     
    Buy several at Dollar Tree!!!
  12. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Anyone like to see this one again ?   

    If we could get one of the Ambulance/Hearse kit, we could likely get all four
    Or at least the Stock pair
    They were they same tooling with different inserts
    I have built enough of them to see the Ambulance "Full-View" Corner light
    location holes in the underside of the Hearse roof
     
    I still have a built Roarin' Rambulance dragster
    and stock Ambulance as well as Hippy version & Stock Hearse
     
    Definitely wish ANY Jo-Han kit could be re-issued
    But with Moebius pulling out from the ones they were testing
    (And the IMC kits announced) we will likely Never see re-issues of them any time soon If Ever!!!
     
    Any news on the Curbside kits last announces\d b the New IMC, as well as the
    Turbine and 59 Dodge that Moebius Was Looking at running???
     
    I would LOVE that 59 Rambler wagon again!!
    Especially with the SFPD decals that were to be included!!
     
     
  13. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic AMT International Transtar Reissue   

    I believe this is the one I need for our town's 4400 Rescue
    Got to get as much info on it as I can NOW
    replacing it AND an Engine with a 'Rescue-Pumper' combination unit
     
     
  14. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Fairmont question   

    I know the Lindberg kit was a Standard 2dr coupe, and Also
    done as the Mercury Monarch twin
     
    Wasn't Futura's Resin a Fairmount Futura, instead of a standard Fairmount?
    NO Station wagon version was done from the Futura design
    It was Called the "Baby T-Bird"
    Looked like one
    We had a Red one, and Mother HATED it
    inline 6 could Not get out of its Own way!!!!
  15. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Amt something new or old   

    Petty DID drive a Ford Torino in 69 due to MoPar's refusal to let him change from Plymouth to Dodge
    in order to drive the Daytona
    MoPar caved in 70 giving him the Superbird to get him back
     
    There Were Ford C cab Box vans at Petty Enterprises for a few years after 69
    I have soem Pics.
     
    As for the L series of the kit
    No Idea
    Plus Petty had gone to Enclosed trucks,
    Not Semis like now, but Straight trucks
    The City Delivery/Short Haul L & C Ford kits
    Some Did carry the car
    Some towed the car on a flat trailer with a Cover over it
    The Tandem trailer shown in some of these set kits is close
     
    I use to go to Dover Downs, so HAVE seen this First hand too!!
