    1/32 bucket seats

    This might be a long shot but I am looking for some 1/32 scale bucket seats ( two or four, all matching) and preferably unpainted. Ideally, they would be the high back design. Does anyone out there have anything that would fit that criteria? Thanks for looking.
  2. Thanks everyone for the info. I now have a better idea of what I will do with the kit. Thanks again.
  3. I recently purchased some kits from an estate sale that included this '53 Corvette. The kit number is T310 and the kit is complete and still sealed inside. Nothing has been started or painted. The tires are the two piece plastic ones. My question is when was this kit produced/issued? Is this an original issue kit? I have looked the kit over from one end to the other and cannot find any date of issue. Another thing that I noticed is that there is no UPC or bar code on the box. I did check the instruction sheet for a date and noticed on the bottom of the last page that the address was listed as Lesney AMT Corporation. Also, on the back on the decal sheet, I noticed a code stating T-310-701 5/78. Does this mean the kit was issued in May of 1978? As you can see from the photos, this kit is in excellent - make that MINT - condition with virtually no shelf wear. It is like the previous owner purchased the kit, took it home and inspected it, then put it away in a safe place and forgot about it. This is as new as the day it was issued. Any help in determining the age of the kit and current value will be appreciated. Thank you.
  4. I have that issue and may want to work out a trade or some kind of a deal with you on it. What I am in need of is a set of Fred Cady # 39 1969-70 Mustang GT 350, GT 500 decals. I am in the process of building the Revell 1969 Shelby GT 500 and would like to replace the kit decals with the Fred Cady ones. Can you help me out?
  5. Thanks everyone for the great advise and suggestions, it is appreciated. After much thought and consideration, I have decided that I will go ahead and prime the body with Tamiya gray primer. Then I will either spray a couple of light coats of Tamiya white primer (to help the color coats to stay bright) or I will go ahead and spray the color coats. Hopefully, the Silver Jade is dark enough (over the gray primer) that the yellow will not bleed through. However it turns out, it will be a learning experience and that is what this hobby is about. You win some, you lose some.
  6. I am in the process of building the Revell '69 Shelby GT-500 and would like to paint it in the factory color of Silver Jade. The problem is that the kit is molded in a gad-awful yellow plastic and I am afraid that the yellow will bleed through. I have had this problem in the past with red plastic. My thought process is to prime the body with Tamiya Gray Primer first and then follow that with Tamiya White Primer and then the color coats. Also, I would like to keep the number of primer/paint coats to a minimum due to the soft molding of the emblems. I would appreciate any advise that anyone could provide on how to proceed with this project. Thank you.
  7. Thanks Gerry for posting an image of the fret. I have checked the MCG site and the fret is still available. My problem is that I do not want to spend $21.00 plus s/h for an item that I will only be using a couple of parts off of. I really only need the side scripts and hood/trunk badges. If someone out there has this fret and is willing to trade, I will trade one kit (or spare parts, decals, etc.) for the fret. I have a small collection of kits and should be able to find something of interest to someone.
  8. Does anyone know if there ever was a photo-etch fret made for the AMT/ERTL '62 Thunderbird? Or where I might find the hood and trunk badges along with the side panel scripts. Thanks in advance for any help with this request.
  9. Thanks everyone for the helpful information. I went ahead and ordered some paint from Scalefinishes and will give it a try.
  10. I haven't used Scalefinishes paints before and would like some input from those that have. Do these paints behave like Model Masters enamels? Do they require special preparations before the color coat? Is there any special application process and what air pressure should I use for the best results? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  11. Thank you Steven for the paint charts. They are exactly what I was looking for. Rex, thanks for your input and I agree with you about getting any color you wanted, MONEY TALKS!!
  12. Does anyone know where I could find some decent exterior color charts for the '67 Shelby GT350 and the '69 Shelby GT500? So far, all I have been able to find on the net are out of focus charts and incomplete color selections. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  13. I have a set of the state travel window decals from the Revell 1948 Ford Woody if that will help you out. There is a total of 12 decals on the sheet. No charge, just PM me with your address.
