That trailer had onlt a Single axle in all the Ford Pickup kits, but was tandem axle in All the Chevy Pickups from the smae time As well as ALL later re-issues we got in the Drag, Race/Nascar, & junk (Diamond In The Rough) sets I have that trailer from the 60 F-100 with only the 1 axle and in the Penski race set as a Tandem It was also tandem in the Blueprinter run I do hope the run it again some day
The Cris-Craft/Rayston trailer would not only need a second axle, but would need to be lengthened I believe I have the Coronado, at least parts shown of it match the Boat I have, though mine was purchased later 67-70 era, and is molded in White & Red.
I am waiting to see a review of that one to confirm that IS the boat kit I have had all these years.
Since several parts were moved from the Blue box art Lesney/Ertl kit and the next issue I Doubt we will see any of the Custom parts back
As can be seen in the pic's of the Original issue Up to and including the Blue kit Both front & rear suspension were on the chrome trees in the Wally's box, and any others after the Blue box the lower front A Arms piece & the 2 pc rear axle were moved off the chrome trees and are bare plastic That leads me to believe many of the Custom parts not seen since the Original run of the Flashback box art, have been lost permanently
I myself would Love the 3 pc trophy and floor globe lights again!!!
The Question then might be... Did Heller Lease the Tooling, Or have Ertl/? run a batch Or Worse did the tooling end up at Heller??? If they were offered by Heller as recently as 5 yrs ago, I am wondering.........
If the latter, then Round2 Will Never re-issue them. Unless they buy them back from heller.
I too wish they would re-issue a Lot of their smaller scale kits
Hopefully the Scale Stars kits sell well enough that they do Any word on the third 1/32 All-Sars/Scale Stars issue?? We got the Avanti & 61 Falcon Ranchero, What else CAN they re-issue
And Which of the 1/43 scale cars can the run?? Some were last out in the Matchbox-Lesney box Street-Magic series Those did Not have the chrome plating!!!
The 36 & 48 Ford Coupes were last out in the Early 70's others like the VW Beatle, Ford GT, Indy Racer, Most of the 67-68 Customs, and 69 Annual Thunderbird have NEVER been re-issued!!!!
I have the Indy Hall Of Fame Racers set too as well as the Pace car set with 80 Trans Am (though called Turbo or Formula Firebird then) 69 Camaro & 86 Corvette. I also have the Ford set with the 2 57's & 63 Sprotsroof Galaxie and the SnapFast set that had the 66 Fairlane GT/GTA and Rannger Pickup The Fairlane was ONLY offered in that 3 kit set!!!! I believe most of the 3 kit sets had 1 kit that at the time was ONLY available in the set Though was available separately before, or afterwards!! Though NOT the 66 Fairlane That was Only available separately as a Retro-Promo.
I have a Chevy Set that had the 63 & 64 Impala's but do not remember what the third kit was. And I remember the Class of 69 set, but did not have that one
There was also a set with the 65 GTO, and 68 Road Runner, but again I do not recall the third kit in that set
I have a Revell 3 car set with 54, 55 & 57 Chevy's And a Penski Race team set with the Matador, Trailer, and Most of the Van!!. Sadly It was missing the body when I got it I had set aside a "Sunchaser" issue of the Van kit for use with that set.
Also I built that set when NEW , but........ The trailer was taken, I need to finish the Matador, and the van....... SHOULD be in that house Somewhere, but.................... I do remember it was missing parts, but have not seen it in Many years!!!
Another I wish I had gotten, the MPC set with the Clear Display trailer, Chevy C1500 Stepside, and 57 Vette. I do have the Pickup & trailer, so........
I only built one of the 1/16 Tri-5 Chevies, the 57 Convert It Di NOT have separate white-Wall inserts!! I am Betting all were based on the same chassis tooling and that None of the Chevies had the insert tires I could be wrong, but, I had an Unbuilt 55 Hardtop, and do not recall separate tire side inserts in that kit either!!
MPC's Toronado did NOT use Jo-Han's body They are/were Completely Different kits I have a couple Jo-Han 66's and an MPC 67 Though Very similar and parts Might interchange, they are Not the same!!! MPC's kit had a 1 pc engine bay/underhood area with Inner Fenders, Firewall & Radiator wall Jo-Han had separate firewall, radiator support and 'inner fenders The Jo-Han pieces did Not even touch each other when assembled!!!
As to the Custom. Was the Mannix Roadster first, or Harry Bradley's "Californian"??? The Californian was still a Coupe/hardtop, so believe that would have been first
AMT issued the Jo-Han 66 as a 67 and later offered Jo-Han's 70. I have Both AMT & Jo-Han 70's There is NO doubt they are the Same kit!! Also My Jo-Han 66-67's are AMT boxed!!
MPC's 67 has Correct front Corner/fender lights (separate Chrome Pieces) The AMT boxed Jo-Han does Not!!
I have that 3 car set waiting The 57 is in the 78 box art scheme I built one just before graduating High School th match the box art I sold it a few years later only change I made was using AMT Firestone Supreme White-Stripe tires in place of the 2 pc 'Delryn' type kit tires!!! The 55 in that 3 car set has OLD SKINNY Goodyear Polyester's!!!! Almost Too small for the car too!!
I also never had any problem with the many I built In fact, one of the 56's is waiting to be Finished as a Nomad Roof is from AMT's 55, interior panels are a combination of Revell 57 & AMT 55 Nomad pieces!! And Yes, I did Most of the work BEFORE Monogram did their 56 Nomad And Mine Matches shape & size of that one! Just have to add the body trim!!!
I only ever saw the Lowrider issue in Pink Not Lavender, And NO Metallic effect either!!
Also, Did they do a Skip's issue of the 57 Hardtop? or Just the Nomad?? Mine was a VERY Dark Blue Metallic, Not black!!! I used that one for parts on the 56 and to restore a built original 57
I also have an Unbuilt, Boxed Original 1969 issue of Revell's 57 Nomad
I have one of Ed Fluck's Resin 70 Impala 4dr Hardtops And it is Nice (i only paid $35.oo back when I got it from him!!) Another just sold on that evil auction site for $83.oo!! Body & interior tub ONLY too!!! Mom had one New then Was Dark Green metallic with matching interior We had white vinyl roof added!!! I would LOVE to find that car now!! Eventually hope to build the resin to match her!!!
I have the 58 Olds & Caddy Promo's too X-El re-issues They started offering those in the 70's NOT 80's!! I have Several catalogs from them then
Use to watch "Last Exile" on Anime Unleashed. What ever happened to that series?? I have the others I watched on it as mp4 vid's but have never seen Last Exile I would love that Vanship too How many did they do What about the Carriers?? or other ships of the fleets???
But, I still need GOOD High-res pic's Do I keep the rocker design from MPC's 67 GTO on a 67 Tempest/LeMans wagon?? Same on 66 Tail lights will be based on Chevell pieces, but back up lights are in Bumper and NOT tail light housing like the Chevelle!!!
