    Using a small cordless drill I really don't have any problems with the bits drilling into plastic.

    I bought a 30 piece drill bit set(Drill Master item# 94606) like the ones for a pin vice. Only paid a few bucks for the set vs. $20+ on the net or hobby store. They're great for plug wire holes and hogging out tailpipes and....

    I just don't care anymore. If I'm buying spray paint(except @‌ the LHS), beer, at the bank, an "R" rated movie(Oooo!), or whatever may require an ID to buy, I'm usually paying with a card. So, open wallet already...ID flipped open, ID checked, I pay, and out the door I go. No big deal. Sometimes the cashier just kind of jokes about the ID thing..."You're 18(or 21) right?" Me: "No, I put each of the gray hairs in myself on purpose."

    Just looking around Ebay and found this...the Adventure People Daredevil with parachute. I, as well as a couple of neighborhood kids, all had one when we were kids. Well, the nostalgic side got ahold of me and it was cheap enough, so here it is.

    Got a couple more Crown Vic's...both are Motormax. The silver car has just red and blue lights as well as the strobe back-up lights. Got it pretty cheap and the seller also included a Crown Victoria dealer pamphlet. According to the seller it was the last car he was going to build and sell. The black one will eventually get lights and siren. I also got the black wheels for it and they're on the car already.

    Went a little crazy buying from Scale Finishes and Fireball Modelworks. Also got a couple more 1/18 Crown Vic's and an Adventure People Daredevil posted elsewhere.

    Growing up, my dad was a AMC and a MOPAR guy. None of that really stuck on me. And my mom really didn't care as long as the car ran and got from A to B and back to A again. For me it was Chevy. BUT, that was until I really started looking at Pontiac's. To me, they made Chevy look generic. Pontiac had much better styling based on the same body style. My first car was a '72 LeMans Sport(still my favorite car I owned and the most fun). I also had '93 Grand Prix LE for a few years as well. Pontiac's will always be my favorite, but in recent years I've been drawn to MOPAR's as well and currently drive a '13 Ram 1500. Lately, I've been eyeing a '70 Challenger that looks to be ripe for a restoration down the street sitting in a neighbors garage as their "catch all." Pretty sad really.

    Hmmm....I see more Pontiac's in my collection in the future.

    I'm thinking about using a garage floor epoxy covering since I have a bare concrete floor right now. I work at a place where I can get a deep employee discount(factory direct). I might even tint it too. And yes, I'd check about the fumes and curing with the use indoors.

    It wasn't a kit. The car came just the way it's pictured. I also recently picked up a silver "slick top" with just red and blue lights...no siren. I also found a guy on YouTube that will put lights, siren, blah, blah, blah in a die-cast for a cost of course. So, I'm thinking about having a black Crown Vic done.

    Couple of kits to trade
    I have a couple of kits up for trade. First is an older version of the Revell '70 Chevelle 3'n1. It is an open box, but the parts bag is still factory sealed and 100% complete. Second is a Revell '67 Plymouth GTX 2'n1. This kit is also an open box. The parts bag was open, but all parts are there and the bag is resealed. I also wrapped two loose pieces of glass in a paper towel and are in a baggie with the rest of the glass and taillights to protect them. So, this is a 100% kit as well. Both kits were then wrapped in a plastic bag(separately).
     
    Kits I'm interested in:
    Revell: '70 HEMI 'Cuda
                '66 Pontiac GTO or GeeTO Tiger
                '70 Ford Mustang Mach 1/Boss 302 Spec. Ed.
                '69 Dodge Charger Daytona
                '90 Ford Mustang LX 5.0
     
    Monogram/Revellogram: '69 1/2 Dodge Coronet 440 (Super Bee)
                                             '70 Plymouth AAR 'Cuda
     
    AMT: '68 Plymouth Roadrunner(current issue with yellow car on box art)
              '71 Plymouth Duster 340
     
    Looking to trade 1 for 1 new or open un-started complete kit(s). Also, and I apologize, I'd like to keep the trade in the US for cost reasons.

  15. The70judgeman added a post in a topic What kits,etc.did you have once and wish you could find another..?   

    Did the old "slap and wrap" when I had it then. Now I guess you could call it my holy grail kit. Just not willing to pay the prices people want for them.
