      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

  1. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Pictures and info needed on 64-67 Pontiac Tempest-LeMans Safari Wagons   

    OK 64 & 67  are started, but fitting Rev 66 Malibu wagon roof to MPC 67 GTO is NOT
    going as easily as 65 bash went nor the Polar-Lights 64/AMT 65 wagon roof bash
    Revell Wagon body is wider than MPC 67 GTO!!
     
    Now I need a Rev/Mono 66 for the fourth of this group
    I SHOULD also get to finishing the 65!!!!
     
    If I can take some pics later today, Sat, or Sun I will start an 'In-Progress' thread
     
    Also, If anyone has Different pics send them to me!!!!!
  2. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic AMT American La France Pumper Re-issue?   

    Yes, I would say that Round2 WILL re-issue the other 2 ALF kits soon
    Both will likely be Retro-Deluxe with Original Box Art like the Aero- Chief we got
    last Feb (1 year ago)
     
    I wonder how long before we get a Deluxe Combined Aerial kit
    that can be built as Either Ladder Chief or Aero Chief!!!
  3. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic 1/25 AMT '59 El Camino   

    Actually, I believe that Camper came in the 64 Annual than the 65 Annual El Camino kits
    And I believe it fits the n64/65 better as it would have been tooled for it
    I too thought it had originally been in the 59, but was wrong
    Also testing one in a 59 showed a poor fit
    The Bunk Underside sits directly on the ElCo's Cab Roof
    NOT good in real life!
    You would create a Dent in the Steel roof or Crack the FiberGlass of the Camper
    Unless the Skin of that camper is Aluminum.
    That would still Dent
    And with all the Scraping, Think of how much paint would be rubbed off Both!!!
    I need to try the fit again. I am trying to remember if the Camper sat fully in the 59's Bed
    or was held Up off near the front due to the Resting on the roof
     
    THAT would cause the camper to completely fail -- Break apart while riding down the road
    Definitely NOT something you want!!!
     
    I* know that only the Small bed cap was in the Construction issue 65 ElCo Twin to the Crew Chief Blazer
    That one stayed in the kit til the Buyer's Choice I THINKI
    Or was it the Nostalgia issue that finally gave us back the full Camper???
     
    Which one is included now??
    Why not both??
  4. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic 1958 Impala convertible   

    Dragon USA should have them too. But closer to $10.oo SALE price each
    There is also at least one more set,  4 "Cowboy/Indian" Girls (Women)
     
    And YES I would like to get both sets
    Though I am LOUSY at figures!!!!
  5. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Lindberg 1/32 70's Kits   

    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
  6. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Ghost Kits - Shown But Never Released   

    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???
  7. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Revell model history   

    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??
     
    Or was it a DIFFERENT Hemmings Magazine??
  8. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic MPC '74 Charger--Take Me to School   

    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
  9. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Ordering From Other Countries, Any Guidance?   

    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!!
  10. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Unique TV/Movie vehicle   

    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
     
     
  11. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic SnapTite kits for a 7 year old   

    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
     
  12. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Apple Barrel acrylics   

    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
  13. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic BJ and the Bear kit   

    I have the 1/32 that I need to restore
    Wish the 1/25 kit included the Bear figure like the 1/32 kit did
  14. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic F1 Hedge ... not what you think   

    I believe he is the front Jack-Man
    Remember F1 cars do not use Hydrolic jacks but those
    Lift dollys
  15. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Another Ebay Comedy   

    The animal looks like a Rabbit with the ears cut off/low
    out os 61 Falcon Ranchero or 59 Buick, (or both??)
     
    and I would also Pass on that wreck
    MIGHT offer $5.oo, but NO more with NO stock parts
