    Did not know they shut the Tamiay USA facilty down. Great source for getting missing/faulty parts for Tamiya kits. Guess we now have to go to Tamiya Japan now. Shame due to language at times.

    Have to admit my choice is a '66 Impala wagon off Revell's '66 Impala SS. I had a '66 SS as my first car and a 66 Impala as my second, so partial to the '66's

    What is the first choice of a new tool you would like to see by any manufacturer?

    Sorry for the duplicate post. Not sure how that happened

    Rob, sorry to disagree but I am buying more Linberg kits than AMT right now. Linberg kits were tooled much more recently than any AMT kits. Want the latest tooling just to the advances in tooling! I may be in the vast minority in buying many of the Round2 reissues, simply due to the fact many of the original tools are close to 50 years old now. I know many modelers are grateful to have these reissuies, but having so many of the earlier issues, I am not buying many of these re-issues. Moiebus is getting much of my purchases now.. Distant second is Revell even with a few new tools.. Round2 is a distant second to Revell. Round2 gives me a '67 Nova SS retool and things change!! Let alone a new tool '68 Cuda!!

    DaveVan, don't know if anyone yet has thanked you for having all of those IMC Ford kits, but I will! Got a few more for you to buy if that is what it takes!!!

    Mark, sorry but I do disagree, yes it fits, but this is still a Linberg kit. Round2 could do better by producing it as a Linberg kit to avoid anyone question if this was a new tool or some reissue. Granted I am buying it, but still wish it were issed as an update for a Lindberg kit

    Just going to add my 2 cents worth. ANYTHING you get from Modelhaus will be the best molds you will be able to get from the time the molds were done. I will say with Don's announced retirement date he may be so busy casting just to keep up, rather than doing new molds If the retirement date was not an issue, I honestly think some molds would be updated if he had a few more years to recoup the cost of new masters. But I am buying as much of his products as I have the funds to (probably more than!!!). I sure wish I had a valid reason for him to continue!!

    DR JAY, you know you do not want to build that so you should send it to me to finish! As IF! LOL

    Not the first time a Lindberg kit has had box art errors, but now in an AMT box? Trying to bury the Lindberg name?

    malstr, can you provide info on the Martini decals? Would rather do that than either of the other two, but if they are not available I will go with the Jeager version.

    afx, weren't these tires also done in resin at one time? I seem to recall someone dong them, but I cannot for the life of me remember who. Would really be nice to see a set done in the soft resin some casters are using for tires lately. I got a set of resin Super Single truck tires in this soft resin and they are very close to some kit tires done in the soft vinyl, rather than the typical hard vinyl in many kits.
