    I am having a problem Posting here
    TEST
  2. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic ROUND2/AMT 1969 GTX QUESTION......   

    I read the part about 68 Air Grabber in Collectible Auto
    and have the issue, (A Few year old though) So I SHOULD be able to confirm that
    I will let you know.

    I built one shortly after the re-issue in the 80's
    That the 68 DeVille Convertible, and the 63 Fury were the ONLY 3 Jo-Han kits
    to be re-issued Complete in tact with All old Customizing parts Still included
    And YES, I got ALL 3 back then!
    And More recently got a built 68 DeVille Convert  63 Fury Missing only 1 tail light lens
    & 2 Unbuilt 70 Eldo's!!
    I also got a 63 Fury Convert restoration project, but that was a trade deal and separate
    I traded one of the unbuilt Eldos, Molded in White (or VERY light green/cream)
    but still have the other Molded in Orange! (Though one Late trade buddy called it More "Pink Lemonade")
    To me it looks like Both tail light lenses Might be there.
    I see a shape that looks like the 2 set back to back (Straight hidden inner surface to straight hidden inner surface)
    Remember, the top & bottom edges are pretty much Parallel, just the top Shorter
    ONLY the face that points out is angled
     
    I just checked my Orange/Pink Lemonade Unbuilt
    YES, Both Tail light lenses ARE there
    the red Sprue is a "T" shape with the Short stub having the 2 lenses on either side, the Long stub runs Under them
     
    I can take a Large Picture, but CAN NOT yet post it
    Anyone know where to get a "NANO' end usb cable?
    I have a Cheap COOLPIX L31 from Nikon, and it did Not include the cable!!!!!
    A friend found one but for $20.oo!!
    NO WAY (almost what I paid for Camera!!!)
    Make it $5.oo -6.oo please!!

    I need to look it up again, but believe the 68 DID offer the Grabber hood too
    But the Screens were SIDEWAYS, aka ON the Sides of the bulges, not Top!
     
    I have 2 69 GTX Convert, and 1 Hardtop and all have the Correct 69 Hood.
    the 68's I have also have their Correct hood.
    I need to check , but since they are Original's believe they have HEMI 
    on what would be the Screen area of the bulge
     
    I believe the First GTX Hardtop, the Pro-Street had the Custom 440
     
    I know the Convertible came only with the Hemi!!!
    I need to also check the STOCK hardtop to see if it had both engines
     
    I Passed on the Pre-Painted 68 as it has the 69 black STRIPES on the hood
    vs the correct rounded corners Rectangle
  6. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Aoshima 2016?   

    I am curious about the Locomotive in the 1 pic. And the Van underneath it.
     
  7. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Heller 2016   

    They are at least the Same three kits Lindberg offered WAY BACK.
    If the Tires are 2pc, and the body sections Screw together, then YES
    They ARE the Lindberg Tooling too!!!!
    I am Betting they ARE the Old Lindberg tooling!!!!
    Would be Odd to have some one Re-tool American Heavy Equipment like that
    when they have similar Brands over there!
    Even IF Cat sells over there too.
    I would Bet the Cat rigs would be Much More expensive then more local manufatcures!!!
  8. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Anyone Know If These Monogram 1/24 Molds Are Still Around?   

    I have the SL. Built it like the box art
    Silver with Red interior.
    I too would lo love to see these back out
    1/8 inchAt least Monogram's ` plastic axle was Stronger than JNo-Han's
    Though, I would likely replace it now with a Wire axle

    Try this again

    Don't you just LOVE Clowns that Don't Understand Honest, Simple, LEGITIMATE
    questions about kits?!?!?!?!?
    I Stated that the Box Art Shows a Family sedan AND LOOK----- I SEE A FAMILY THERE TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Father Plus THREE Kids Usually Equals FAMILY Outing!!!!!!!!!
     
    Would YOU drive Your kits in a Car like this kit builds with RACE Exhaust designed primarily
    to get the car the SHORT drive to the strip, then Back afterwards when Closed to "STREET" Setting??
    I DOUBT it as it would Still be fairly LOUD in that car!!!
    Kids can complain enough on long trips, think about the complaining you will put up with, NOT Just from Them
    but EVERY ONE ELSE in the car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
    Did ANYONE say they would NOT Buy the kit due to the Box Art Misrepresentation???????
    I Didn't, and did not see any one else say that.
    I did see 1 or 2 Repeat MY Question as to the Box art design!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Did You READ???? (I think Yes, but Did NOT Understand WHY we asked the question)
     
    Am I WHINING
    If Asking the Question I am is in YOUR eyes whining then YES I MUST be. To YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    And, How Many people NOT members here will DUMP this kit, Or MOEBIUS kits in General if this is their First
    Purchase  Because They Can't Build the Stock Sedan on the Box!!!????!??!?!?!?!?
     
    If I don;t get this kit it will be Due to COST factor NOT the Mistake in Box Art!!
    I said I would LOVE to convert one to 4dr and as an LAPD Cruiser!!!!!!!!!!!!
    And some one said LA County Sherriff had them too!!!!!
     
    Do I Hope they see fit to actually Offer the kit as shown on THIS box art, YES I DO!!!!!!!!!!
    Heck, I would LOVE to see Convertible and WAGON bodied kits from this series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
    Next time BEFORE you call some one a Whiner, actually Take the time to READ what they say FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  10. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Hmm, another brass-era Model T I'm going to have to have, I think!   

    I Definitely would LOVE that Fire Truck!!
    Hope to find one at the regional Hobby shop over here.
    But... Car don't like to go 1/4 that far!!!!!!
     
    And Yes it Does look Correct for the era!!
     
    Also would Love the Ambulance to be 1/24 too!!
  11. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic First look - Production version Moebius 65 Plymouth Belvedere Sedan   

    Curious that the Box Art is for a Family Sedan, while the kit is FAR from that
    They should Change that to better reflect the LACK of Stock Family Sedan
    build Option!!!!!
    I Hope for a Stock version to follow, as Tires, etc are Garbage to me!!!!!
    And Yes, I would Like to convert to 4dr, and LAPD!!
    A few 65 Belvedere Black & Whites are seen in early seasons of Adam-12
    And I believe are Correct for LAPD!!
  12. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Heller 2016   

    I wonder if the 3 1/60 scale items are Lindberg's Caterpiler kits
    The Pic of the Scraper looks like one I have!!
    The other 2 are a Large Dump Truck & Wheel Loader
    And Yes, I have the 3
    Would Love for them to be re-issued, But by Heller??
    Why not Lindberg?
    Did Heler end up with the tooling??
  13. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Why does the same car vary by kit manufacturer?   

    Lost this reply with a Disconnect during Post!!
     
    It Is amazing how well the 3 59 Ford kits/promo's share parts
    Especially as Revell's kit had a Multi-piece body!!
     
    And Yes, I used Rev parts on Both AMT & PMC restoration projects
    with NO modification needed!! (Except to Inset the tail lights in PMC bodies--they were surface mounted instead)
     
    Also, did anyone notice how Revell Of Germany Corrected the Skyliner kit to read "Fairlane 500"
    when they re-issued it in their 50th Anniversary series, while
    Rev-US reverted to calling it Galaxie on their SSP re-issue a couple years later??
    An error started with the Skip's Fiesta series issue
    Did they Not do the research?? or even Look at the Marque on the rear fenders??
  14. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic NEW! An advance and detailed look at the final production version of the new Moebius Models 1961 Pontiac Ventura kit....   

    I was told this kit is showing up in MICHAEL'S Craft & Hobby!!
    Massapequa, N.Y area!
    I Hope the one near me has it
    40% Coupon will help in my getting one (more)!!!!!
    Does this mean other  Moebius kits will follow??
    And that Hobby Lobby will catch on and carry them too??
