  1. Aluminum Moon Fuel Tank

    Jim: Check into JDS Racing Products, the owner is Joe Cardoza. He makes milled slot cars parts and if you check him out on FB. He makes slot cars that are fully detailed that you would be hard pressed to see they are not regular models. He has a couple of size aluminum Moon tanks and makes some killer injector stacks with the tops anodized in a couple colors. His website is down for modifications (www.jdsracing.com) but you can probably reach him on his FB page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/435553483225995/. Here are some pics...
  2. Round 2's new release 75 Datsun pickup has a nice set of pad printed Goodrich Radial T/As. They are their normal hollow low profile tires but at least is the right brand tires. Missing link has the correct depth chrome Rallye wheels that I mastered and they fit these tires well. They should be available.
  3. New Decals from Whoopiekat

    Alan: I thought I read that you will have Dick Landy's 67 Coronet R/T decals available soon.
  4. 66 Country Squire

    Paul: Beautiful! Please keep us informed on when these will be available. Just ca't get enough of wagons, especially from the sixties and the Fords were the most beautiful. Keep up the great work!!!! Do you have any of your projects ready for sale?
  5. The Model Car Garage status...

    There maybe an issue with your browser, I just went to MCG's site and nothing wrong at all. His site is working fine.
  6. The only reason I'll buy this kit is to use the chassis and modify the interior with my Johan 72 Torino promo and Torino NASCAR (body with open hood) kits. Never really liked the years after the 72s but this kit is the answer to detail the 72 Torino.
  7. Absolutely beautiful, great work Paul. Can't wait to see these released!
  8. Steve, right on! I've been saying this forever. To your point, I paid Modelhaus 75 bucks for their 57 Plymouth and would have preferred to spend 30 bucks for a complete new kit! They can modify their 57 Chrysler 300 to a New Yorker or better, a 57/58 DeSoto. Their 71 Duster for a 71 Demon,the 60 Ford (reissued several times) to a 61 Sunliner. We can go on and on because they had great tooling from the nineties that are dynamite and are missing the opportunity for modified re-issues.
  9. Round 2 has a few new kits coming!!!

    Great point Bill, I have been doing the same. You know, when a company stops listening to its consumers and they continue to produce products with no improvements or better yet, not take advantage of new technology, then maybe they should fold (I too would hate to see this happen but companies control their own fate for the most part). If they do not wish to compete with Revell, Moebius and the Asian manufacturers, they will bury themselves. If however they decide to release kits that were never (re-issued) and if they are sitting on the tools, then I think most of us will continue to buy their kits. Like I said earlier in this tread, Round 2 has tremendous opportunities for some new kits never produced by modifying existing tools (modified re-issues), keeping costs down because of shared components and provide vehicles never offered; for example: modify their 57 Chrysler for a 57/58 DeSoto. How many of us would pay 30 bucks for that! I am no manufacturing expert, but with the technology today, they could probably duplicate an existing tool without destroying it for a modified one. Geez, give us something new! This is why I applaud Revell for doing just that (although they have more potential for more)!
  10. Round 2 has a few new kits coming!!!

    I think their marketing strategy is reissue kits they think would boost sales and revenue, but many of us have these old regurgitated kits that are nothing new and asking crazy prices that newly tooled kits are getting, ridiculous! I get it with the new Camaro, which is a nice kit. But how many times are they going to repackage the same old stuff that many of us do not want, their plan can back fire with loads of these kits sitting in a warehouse, while that wasted cost could be allocated to at least one new tool.I just wish they would invest in new tools or at least modified tools for new versions!

  13. Round 2 has a few new kits coming!!!

    Younger builders may not have any interest in these kits, they did not grow up with our cars and if anything, they would want newer vehicles, if they have interest at all in the hobby. For the prices of $30 or so, i'll spend my money on a highly detailed tool of a vehicle we haven't seen and most of us would want..like a Moebius kit. It's a ridiculous pricing strategy for same old kits, unless it's something we haven't seen since it's first run. So I guess we have the privilege of complaining especially when the prices of kits are so high and the values are not up to par in these releases.
