The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well. k den
A side note here Most likely ONLY 1 version of these True 1/32 kits can return The Charger & Cordoba are the Same kit with alterations to replicate the Chrysler Grill, etc The Charger tail light section over the corner of the rear quarter was left in place The Granada/Monarch and Omega/etc, As well as Monte Carlo/Buick Century will likely be the same UNLESS tooling for the different Grills, etc was separate and not altered!!
I would LOVE to see these back and with Round2 running the All Stars 1/32 kits not We just MIGHT get lucky here
When did American Satco close?? I wanted their red-line, Blue Streak, Gold Line & White Stripe/Sidewall tires I wanted the 66 Chevy Pick up Too!!! And is the Monogram/Revell 65 what became of their announced kit??
Also Yes, The AMT 71 Petty Road Runner WAS the MPC kit! Don't Forget at the same time they announced the Petty kit return., they announced the Original Annual 60 Ford Sunliner was to be re-issued I know the tooling needed a Lot of work then, but do they still have it now???
I looked at a March issue of M Hemmings Motor News a few days ago But All I saw on Collectibles was a Marx 'Electric' Slot car set Not a Revell history So was it in the March issue, Or Feb, or even Jan??
I built the 73 Annual back then And Yes, As the Wagon! The Stock rims in the kit were the Ralley's Not Mags I believe Most MPC MoPar kits used the Ralley rim I know both the 73 & 74 Road Runner did and all the Duster Annuals I had too
I have ordered books and DVD's from Amazon that came from Great Briton with No problem My payment went to Amazon, they would forward any necessary to their outside vendors All the items I ordered were VERY Cheap read $1.oo to $5.oo and FREE Shipping!!!!!! Delivery from GB was Fast I did not realize they were coming from Europe until Received and seeing the shipping label!!
Yes, Revell needs to re-issue that J10 Honcho kit!!
I can tell you some of the cars shown ARE out there as Kits The Star Car & the Truckster are available as FREE Paper kits The Landram was being developed, but stalled a few years ago due to difficulties at the articulation point
Also AMT had PLANNED the Defender Coupe from VIPER, but dropped it when NBC cancelled the show They Could had done it though as VIPER did continue to run in First-run Sindication Did they ever offer it on DVD???
Another I would Love to see in kit form, The Dodge D300 Utility from EMERGENCY And YES a paper model IS out there The Crown And Ward LaFrance would also be nice to see a paper Model of the Crown was also started, but stalled
I have seen but never gotten the Grave Digger, but have built MANY of the other Snap kits out there The 1/32 kits from Monogram are very nice though ONLY the 70 Mach-1 & Cobra roadster are completely Stock!! The Cobra Did come standard with Sidepipe mufflers!! The 69 Camaro, 78 Vette, & 68 GTO are stock but with sidepipes This is the method of hiding the body/chassis mounting lugs The 55 Chevy is part street machine, part Pro Street drag Roll bar and 2 Bucket seats are the only option for the interior The 34 Coupe is the "ZZTop Eliminator" I have SEVERAL sets of the 6 kits from the Halloween, Winter Ice & Spy/Tech issues I was emptying Wal-Marts of them at $1.oo each to as little as 50 CENTS each I have more of the Halloween series than any others
Here are the 6 Halloween kits
The other series included the same cars
The Cobra, a 79 Camaro, and Mustang were not included I do not think they have been re-issued at all
The Semi trucks are all decent kits too I have had many of them, and hope more get re-issued. I have the Mack R with Tank trailer, and am looking for the Freightliner Conventional with box van/refer trailer
The MACK CF Pumper was first offered in the early-mid 80's The original 2 kits were molded in red & Yellow This is the ONLY Yellow offering They showed the Deluge gun on the Red kit, the 3 beam Flood light on the yellow Both kits were Identical except plastic & box art
The Second issue was a Tie in to the Movie Backdraft Decals/stickers were for Chicago engine 17 though in the movie the Ladder was the MACK!
The kit stayed Chicago 17 and box art was kept the same though with out BACKDRAFT labeling
I believe the HERO's 2 kit was next with the Mack pumper and the Malibu police sedan That Malibu was also offered in BACKDRAFT box art
The current run of the kit Copy-write dated 2012 and later, has the base for the Deluge molded to the roof and the headlight lenses now molded in-place on the chrome front grill/bumper piece So if you want the Clear headlights and/or the Search/flood light option you need an Older issue of the kit Again, I have SEVERAL of this kit, and do look for deals on it all the time I have 3 or 4 box lots of parts for them too
I have MANY plan ideas for them too!! I need to get back to the 3 In-Progress pro!!jects
I use the White and Red for Tire side walls & Stripes The ONLY type of paint TO use on Vinyl!!!! I would love to try one foe a body color, but my Badger 350M is hidden away right now AND no propel for it either
I have 2 of that Ultimates Cobra Never did get the Vette!!!
I have No problem with Smaller scale kits I hope that the 132 All Stars sells well for Round2 and we get the 143 series next Hopefully including kits Never re-issued after the original run, ie; T-Bird, VW Beetle, Indy car, Custom GTO
I have a Dual-Cowl Pheaton Duesy to restore and a later re-issue to build I also built the Rolls Royce Cabriolet that sadly met the Sun a little too close and have another of the Series to build Would I buy more YES IF I had the money to let me I Love those Classics
I also have a few of the Hubley Diecast kits of the classics of that Vintage 2 of the 3 Packards,All 3 of the 32 Chevies I know of and 2 of the Model A Fords Roadster & Woody
