    Casey, I love those product sheets! Where do they come from, and can I access them?
  2. Vince Nemanic added a post in a topic The least kitted brand....   

    There were MANY manufactures that never had model kits made.  Try to find a Nash or Oakland, LaSalle, Jordan, Monteverdi, etc.

    Matt,  many AMT and MPC kits had "inserts" in them. these small, separate mold parts made parts switching possible. If you thought that parts like rims or axles looked the same, it is probably because the exact same insert was used for both kits. It has long been rumored that Jo Han tools are useless due to the theft of many inserts.

    It was in the  Modesto B&N for the first time ever.

    I am not the original poster, but I think a bunch of us would like a high resolution scan of that. Hint--hint.
  7. Vince Nemanic added a post in a topic The HAMB is reporting that George Barris has died   

    Every time I saw a clip of Barris talking about the Monkeemobile. he used the phrase "my Monkeemoble" not "when I designed the Monkeemobile".  He let the listener assume the origins of the car.  I always took it that he was referring to the fact that he had  bought the car. He chose his words as carefully as a lawyer would.

    A reply to the HAMB thread said that his son confirmed it on the Barris Facebook page. I'm not on FB so maybe one of the others can check.

    I have been checking elsewhere for confirmation, but nothing yet.

    Am I the only one with a Martin D28?

    I wonder how a passenger would get in?
  13. Vince Nemanic added a post in a topic BRE Datsun 240Z   

    What are the tires like? are they the ones in the newer 510 or the old 2 piece?
  14. Vince Nemanic added a post in a topic SHARED CHASSIS?   

    Most MPC MoPar B body kits shared an almost identical chassis pan. The original 65 Coronet  (molded by MPC but sold by AMT) has a pan almost the same as the 67-70 Charger annuals and even the Dukes of Hazard and 70 Coronet.  I don't have too many B boy variations, but I know that these are almost the same.  The AMT 65 Coronet has full rear wheel wells and the front sub-frame has the wrong shape, but everything else seems the same. I don't know when MPC took off the wheel wells or corrected the front, but I don't think it took too long.
  15. Vince Nemanic added a post in a topic HELP!......"3D" Printing!   

    There was a very long and very informative seminar at GSL this year. one of the SLC club members even did a demonstration. A presenter that does a 3D printing blog said that a printer will soon be on the market for $275 and the club member mentioned that it is a good idea to have a computer specifically dedicated to the 3D printer
    There was a lot of discussion on software, too. It is supposed to be put on the website so look for it and get comfortable before you start.

    What I learned is that I will NOT be doing 3D printing. It would take me forever to learn the software.

    Another presenter had a different approach: he did three view drawings on paper, hired somebody to convert them to 3D files, then had a printing surface make the part. he then made RTV molds and resin cast the parts. For me this sounds like the way to go. This guy also did a seminar on resin casting that also should be on the GSL site. I HIGHLY recommend thae anyone interested in 3D printing view one or both of these seminars.
