    I've sent you a PM as well.

    Got my copy of the magazine yesterday in a clear plastic bag, and the issue inside was perfect! Good job Gregg! I appreciate the work you've put in.

    It would be nice if it came with a stock hood to make a more mainstream Cutlass.
    The front clip would need to be reworked for a stock look, but that doesn't appear too difficult.
     
    These things were as common as air molecules in my town when I was growing up. I'll be picking one up for sure.

    Great job! I built one of these a long time ago and it's still one of my favorite kits. Love these cars.

    Heck, 8 seconds to 60 was GREAT for '83!

    Who did Dave at MCW sell his paint line to? I still see that I could order paints from MCW off their website.

    What a wonderful idea. Really well done.

    Looks like the bike is Marc Marquez' ride.

    I believe the Revell 670 was a rebox, because the 670 was issued by Italeri as well:

    1970-71 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler. Given that we already have a Torino, getting this one tooled up wouldn't even cost all that much in all likelihood.
    2004-2007 Jaguar XJR.

    I wonder which motorcycle that's going to be?
  12. Merkur XR4Ti added a post in a topic Volvo VN670 & VN780   

    Sorru to bump an old thread, but I noticed that Italeri has just reissued the VN780 kit. Does anyone know if they're going to reissue the VN670 kit as well? I'd like to build a Midland Transport rig with the Volvo tractor as I see them all over the place on the highways up here, but I've noticed that almost universally the cabs are VN670s, not 780s.
     
    I've never built a big rig model before, so forgive my total ignorance of them.

    I have an extra taillight lens if you need it.
     
    Thanks for the compliments, all. It took a while to get this one done as I kept getting distracted by life stuff, but I'm quite happy with the finished product. I've just started putting the vinyl roofs on cars that often had them, which is a new modeling technique for me, and I must say it's very satisfying when it turns out alright.

    This is a rebuild of a glue bomb I scored off that auction site. I rebuilt and painted it to match a vintage ad for the car I found online.
    I am starting to really enjoy building these full-sized land yachts. They look so impressive when done.
    Apologies for the picture quality, I just took a couple of snaps with my ancient iPhone.
