The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.
Tom, I had to file down the top of the firewall on mine. It's been a while now so I don't remember exactly what I ended up having to do, but I have no doubt that you'll see it if you focus your peepers on that area.
I typically use Chrome, but have tried your site with FF and Opera with the same results. This is the first I've known that there was no functional "Parts" page, though. That's likely where the majority of my issues have come from. That, and that wherever I go, I have to back up to a particular starting point rather than click through as one would intuitively do. Bad case of "Can't get there from here" itis. lol.
And I hope you guys know that I tell you this not to slam on ya...more like a psst yer fly is open. Love the stuff you guys are doing!
That's okay, Mr. Stephens. Our opinions are rarely in sync, and trust that I lose absolutely no sleep over that. Thank the gods, though, that you were here to point out that you disagree. I'm not sure the forum could have stood wondering. One of these days, though, you may want to consider un-wadding your panties about the fact that I like old cars and have no personal interest in new ones. Just because I don't like them myself, doesn't mean I don't recognize the need for the suppliers of our hobby to be diverse. Unless you'd care to form more of my opinions for me...in which case I can happily go back to simply ignoring you.
Thanks, Rob. I was pretty sure it was around then, but sometimes I find I've missed something that happened during those few years I was out of the loop.
And you're right, it is unfortunate. See, I'm not always against everything just because it's newer than I am. I'd like to see them as well. But I don't think the companies will spend the dough to give them to us. Not because it wouldn't be worth it to tool up a new truck kit...I have no doubt it would sell well. But, you can't just tool up one new truck kit, now can you? Ford would never stand for not being represented if Dodge or Chevrolet were, nor would either of the latter if the shoes were on the other foot (feet?). So that's where my naysayer comes out in full force...not because they're new, but because it'd be expensive as %@&*, and while trucks are 'bout near always cool the new ones are not cool enough to overcome the bean-counters sphincter tightness.
A new '56 tool would be great, but I don't see that happening for the same reason. We have one, long in tooth or not, and while I agree it's a fantastic design, it's no '63-'64 Impala, tri-five Chevy, or '57 Ford.
Anyway, Ford bumpsides are cool. I wants one. Or five.
Count me among the hoard who can't wait for a fully-functional Missing Link site! I know you guys have tons of cool stuff, but the only time I've ever seen it all was in person at a show. Come on guys it's 2013! Broke n' busted websites are so 2003.
Our last full-on dose of new pickup kits was when? 1999? 2001? I can't remember right now. While I agree that we're due again, new pickups are really not that interesting. Yes...yes...they're kinda interesting, but they're not "spend a million in new tooling to cover the main ones" interesting. So I don't see that rash coming on for a while. I think most would settle for a diecast that doesn't totally suck, that we could at least steal a cab/box from...but I wouldn't even hold my breath for that.
I'd slay things in a highly over-dramatic manner for an early Bronco. I keep just missing the far-too-infrequent listing of the Cheez Cast resin version on the bay. Some other guy built a master a couple years ago and posted the build over on Jeffs off-road forum, but he turned out to be a major tease...got it about ready to cast, then up n' awol'd. It looked pretty dang good, too. Really, really really want. The drag version doesn't cut it.
Anyway, since the thread has kinda come back down to earth for the most part, can we expect any new teasers soon, Dave? We're ready for a peek at...anything! lol.
Gotcha. I had the car 'zine wrong anyway. I didn't even have the model company right. The one I was thinking of was a Revell, from their Car and Driver series. Ah well, I am a year older today so my memory should prove itself failing. lol.
