  1. I dream about finds like these! Like NOS parts in my 1:1 world....
  2. Admittedly for my 1:1 project. I have a couple of pieces of ABS trim that have a “smile” that I’d like to reshape. Does anyone know if ABS responds like styrene to heat and massaging?
  3. I recall the Boss Mustang and a few others; quick builds during my childhood and fueled the Imagination. I’m in for a reboot of that experience due to my work schedule...
  4. Exactly what I was thinking— even if it was a short run, “private label” type of kit, I’d pay a (slight) premium for a kit molded in white with those stock upgrades.
  5. Well this one slipped off my radar- so begins the search...
  6. I finally picked up a ‘66 Suburban here in Sacramento- my thanks to the original poster! Many of the others were there as well but I didn’t want to be greedy...
  7. I’m handy enough with a Dremel, knife, etc. but that variance in the front fender opening is a surprise and something I wold have to correct. I’m amazed an error like that squeaks through these days but am grateful for the kit...
  8. Finally... an opportunity to build my old 1:1. Emphasis on build vs. remain in shrink wrap...
  9. I will certainly vote with my wallet to keep releases like this coming in the future- though for every new kit I purchase I must sell/trade 4-5 others to keep the pile manageable...
  10. I have a copy of Jerry Pantis’s book on “plastic” Porsche’s but it’s buried at the moment pending a west coast move. I’ll have to take a look when I land.
  11. I’m about to move across the country and I’m on the fence about what to sell/give away. I’m sure I can pare down the pile to 150 or so.
  12. This is one of the few truly collectible kits I own- I was amazed to find it and didn’t even know it existed. As such, I’ve always considered it ripe for “remastering” when the technology existed, much like the few JoHan originals I’ve been able to acquire.
  13. The built-up ‘60 I purchased a few years ago was less than $20; this was at a general car show flea market. Still in its as-found state unfortunately. I recall buying the first round of the ‘59 reissue from Dave at Carlisle; he almost had me convinced to buy a case at the time, I couldn’t believe the tooling still existed.
  14. Born in '68 and from an early age I was artificially nostalgic for the cars of my father's youth; his '57 Chevy, my uncle's '59 Fury and the '58 Buicks and Chevys due to the two assembled kits I had acquired from him. My recollections of 70s iron revolved around our family '73 Dart that developed rust at an alarmingly early point in it's life; I though it was inferior to my grandfather's '69 Impala in so many ways. In any event, from the marketing standpoint and independent of my own lack of interest in the subject, I could only recommend freshly tooled Camaros, Firebirds and pick-ups. At the same time I'd snap up a Continental Mark IV, curb side or full-engine.
  15. Makes me wish I still had my '65 F250 Styleside. I'd gladly have provided photos, measurements, etc. in any quantity Moebius desired... While I'm dreaming I'd suggest -- for maximum tooling flexibility -- a 1963 Pontiac Catalina. Otherwise, a 1960 Chrysler 300F.
