    Nice, Hope they decide to re-issue that series soon
    HOPE they STILL have them!!!!
     
     
  2. 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
     
  3. 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
  4. 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!!!
  5. 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!!
     
     
  6. 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
     
     
  7. 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!!!!
  8. 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!!
     
     
  9. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic 1/25 AMT '83 Camaro Z28   

    Did AMT have one of these? Or is this the MPC Annual??
    I built the 82 Pace car, and the front look to Steer on the box art
    So makes me think MPC tooling

  11. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic TV / Film Cops n Robbers or paired cars ?   

    PaperRoom offers both the Valiant & Semi Tanker from Duel
    The tanker is Free on the site
    You have to buy the Valiant
  12. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic TV / Film Cops n Robbers or paired cars ?   

    2 of those above I can Cover for you for FREE
     
    Columbo's Peugeot And the 906 are available as Free PAPER models!!
    And YES, I have Both!!!!
    The 906 is NOT a Simple kit
     
    There is a  61 Plymouth/Dodge Pheonix LAPD but with Dome instead of Coffee Can
    Lights correct for LA and may other California Departments of the era from the 
    same designer as the 906 & Peugeot
     
    If interested I will look through my Bookmarks
    Also an 83 LTD/Crown Vic is available in MANY PD markings
    that can be modified into a 73.
    Paper Tride has that, As well as others (Bathtub Caprice & Jellybeen Crown Vic PD  Brick Impala PD too!!!)
     
    Here is the correct PaperTride Paper Models link
    http://laras-paper.com/search/PAPERTRIDE/
    There is a Translate button as the site is Russian
    ANd YES it IS the HOME site for the models Not a Pirate site!!
     
    Note a few do NOT have down loadable kits though they are listed
    Benz 124 Wagon, 84 Chevy Suburban 4x4 (Really want that one!!)
    Brick Chevy is a Caprice and currently Taxi only, but a Start
    the Square Ford is available in MORE liveries, including Stock Family (Unmarked) sedan
    Members of PaperModeling Forums can get a Zip with Most versions 
    Civilian, CHP, Del State K, Lincoln, Nebraska, & Aberdeen Fire
    1/25 & 1/18 scales for most
     
    There is a 66 Chevy C20 Tow Truck too!!!!
     
  13. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic History of AMT & MPC's Action Line Pickup Kits   

    I have several of these and can add confusion
    Some have 350 in the badge, some 400/8
    Also a couple I have  have different side marker lights
    2 Square ones in the spot versus the to narrow rectangular stacked 
    on most
    I have no idea which are AMT or MPC as they were built & box lot buys over the years
    got a Great deal about 66-7 years ago from an evilbay seller
    Big box-lot for $30.oo plus shipping--No other bidders!!!!
    got no less than 4 complete out o\f the box and many more cab, interior, etc
    And 2 Cooter's in the bunch too!!!
    1 built near complete, 1 parts but restorable
    Just need decals!!!
     
    WHAT did they do with that tooling to cause the to re-tool the GMC shortbox stepside into the 
    last re-issued 72 Fleetside????????
  14. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic 13" wheels in 1:24 scale. Help!   

    I do not know of any 13 inch rims in scale now
    But AMT use to have them in several Annuals from the early 60's
     
    Falcons, Mustangs, Tempest, even Corvairs had them
     
    You can TRY the latest issues of the 60 (formerly 61) Falcon Ranchero
    or 69 Corvair (Stock version not Funny Car)
     
    The Ranchero had Steelies, but from what I have read, are closer to a 14 in rim
    That MIGHT work out as the AMT kit is 1/25 while your Mini is 1/24
  15. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Revell 1:25 Kenworth K-100 Aerodyne   

    As I recall, The KW in the Pilot Movie for BJ & The Bear was a Flat Roof
    It became an Aerodyne for the series
     
    I have the AMT 1/32 scale kit set
    Wish they would re-issue that one!!!!!
