      Unfortunately, we were unable to upgrade the board software due to some technical difficulties. We will try again once we get the problems worked out.

  1. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic A house full of Plastic & Die-Cast   

    I would offer to help too
    But too far away, and  NO way to get there
     
    LOVE that HLF 20/16 Schlingman. Too bad those German Fire
    Apparatus kits start at or over $100.oo now!!!!
    And think I see tail light 'Light-transfer' bars for either 64 Impala or Galaxie
    original annual kit
    I have a built Impala convertible needing that and the wires, contacts, etc to add the lights to!
    See the headlight bars too
     
    Oh well.
    Dreams are Free
  2. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic School me on the MPC 1970 Coronet Super Bee   

    I still have most of my original Annual 70--Wish I had the hood though!!
    Was the grill also re-tooled??
    My original has the ring (step-in) shown on the Annual box art above
    But the First re-issue does not have that detail
     
    I can understand the Retro-Deluxe re-issue with a Modified Original box art
    But Why use the 69 annual box art design on this re-issue???
     
    Would I get another?
    Yes if I can afford one I would!!
    I do wish the Police parts were returned to the kit though!!!
    YES, that was how my original was built!!

    They Finally found a way for me to 'Want' that modern Camaro
     
  4. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic otaki dodge challenger swat value   

    I wanted that Challenger & matching T-Bird for years
    (I LOVE Police & other Emergency Vehicles!!!)
    I Have the Firebird Trans Am And the only complaints I had
    (and Still have) are 1. that the decal dissolved as soon as it touched the water,
    (I traced the second Bird decal and painted one on!!)
     
    and 2. that the Amber Turn signal lenses were cast in clear RED!!
    Each tail light was 4+ separate lens pieces
     
    The opening doors in that Trans Am fit better than most
    and do not  sag or droop when opened
     
  5. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic AMT Customizing Boat 3'n1   

    I wanted this during The Buyer's Choice run, but could NOT find one!
    And, I have Not seen any as cheap as $20.oo!!
    Last time I looked...........................................
  6. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic New reissue AMT '57 Fairlane questions   

    One thing about those 58 EDSEL Wagon Tail Light Lenses
    Remember they are Custom Copies and Larger than Stock!!!
    For an Accurate Stock version, you will need to remove approximately
    1/8 inch from the center of the lens
    I have a Resin Villager wagon and a Kitbash Ranchero
    in the works and have modified 2 sets of those lenses
  7. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic AMT 1963 Chevy Impala question......   

    This Kit, not seen sine before 1970, has Always had the Missing Engine bay parts,
    Not Just the Firewall, but Radiator too!
    Also the tail lights are cast in the Bezels On the body!!
    Lastly, this has axles more like the Old 58 & 59 Annuals & Promos
    Very Thick (Approx 1/8 inch) versus the Wire rod axles in the 64 Impala
    Luckily the ones I have do have Smooth axles and not the Heavy
    Fluting/gears of the Originals!!
     
    Still a nice kit
  8. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Lindberg '52 Chevy Fastback 1/32   

    I have 2 of the Fleetline kit I built Way Back when too!!
    only got the Wagon body a couple years ago
  9. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic scale motorsport Shelby Daytona coupe   

    Darn
    I have 2 of the M*A*S*H Bell Chopper
    but None of the other 2 kits from the Series
    I WANT that Jeep & Swamp with Hawkeye, Hotlips & Radar Figures
    as well as the Duece & Half with B.J. & Klinger!!
  10. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Lindberg '52 Chevy Fastback 1/32   

    I have the Wagon Body, but need the Interior!!
    I also Wish More of these would get re-issued!!
  11. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic monogram high roller series   

    I believe Only the Chevelle and Camaro cars were in the series
    I built both when new!!
     
    The High-Roller parts are Identical between the cars too!!
    (same added trees & tires)
  12. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Tax added on Ebay now?   

    I actually Cancelled Magazine Subscriptions and Book offers from them when they said Sales Tax!
    I asked for a Maryland address to send Payment, when they said NO office, etc in Md.
    I said NO Tax, or NO SALE
    They took that as No Sale only!!
     
    My sister refused an Avon purchase due to sales tax!!
    I just got a CHEAP 63 Ford Pickup kit ($14.oo) for the Hood
    {Yes I will take Offers on parts I do not Need--Body Damaged!!}
    NO sales tax!!
    Seller accepted Postal Money Order!!
     
    Sales tax have been Asked for on Mail-Order for Years
    But You Could sometimes get it waived
    Not sure Now, But I will Laugh at All Bankrupt companies when Mail-Order Dies as they start charging ALL state taxes!
     
    I asked the Right Questions Many times on Mail-Order
    Why, Which State is requiring tax
    How Long before the state where the Warehouse is Adds their tax to the Purchaser's home state tax
    Then The state where the Home office is, then the state where the office Receiving/processing the order,
    the EVERY state the item travels through to get to you
    Pretty soon the taxes will not only be More than Shipping, But more than the Item
    Therefore I REFUSE to pay sales tax on mail-order unless ordered AND Shipped from Maryland Company
     
    The Best Question though is What is NATIONAL Sales tax!!
    When they Pause (Normal) or say None, I tell them That is the Sales tax I pay!!!
    Refuse, or cancel enough orders, and watch sales tax get Dropped!!

    I have a FEW all found at hobby shops
    I have not yet had the $$ to subscribe
    I WANT to, but reading about the problems involved,
    Wonder if it will continue
    I HOPE it does!!!
     
    I would LOVE to find a collection of them somewhere,
    BUT NO One around here as interested in Models as I am!!!
  14. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic +Modifying a Promo+   

    I have a few like this too
     63 And 64Falcon Futura Sprint convertibles needing a Windshield frame
    Same for a 61 Galaxie Sunliner
    And others I forget
  15. Edsel-Dan added a post in a topic Acrylic Paint for Whitewalls   

    I use the Cheap Apple Barrel Acrylics from Wal-Mart
    for tire sidewalls.
    Yes flexing the tire after the paint dries will crack it
    and even cause lifting
