    JC, how many issues of Scale Auto Modeler did you get while it was being published? I thought it was great just to see all the stuff we don't see in our magazines, just like I am betting the Europeans are doing the same thing for buying what never makes it into their magazines. I can't even count how many Photo-Etch pieces I saw in there that never were mentioned in any of the U.S. magazines.

    I would like to ask Gregg if this would be one exception he might make to the no selling rule? Allow Amy to list them here rather than e-bay, so all of Harry's friends, even those that never met him in any other way than here, mught be able to help Amy out. I saw at least one die-cast that I would like of Harry's and I am sure I am not alone. And to have his kits here instead of the bay, well that might assure her little to no costs to her.I know I would love to see some of Harry's collectionwithout having to wade through all the other things on e-bay. Just a thought

    You guys on the east coast don't have any idea how lucky you are to have an Ollie's around. I see all the kits you are getting and the prices are great.I would be stocking up on kits as parts donars. Hobby Lobby clearence price is the same as their 40% off coupon price.
  6. socal76 added a post in a topic Revell Pre painted figures wanted   

    You aren't the only one trying to get those figures. Hate buiyng a kit and then takeing the loss on selling it because I already have it before the figures were added.
  7. socal76 added a post in a topic Do you have masters ready to cast?   

    Ace-Garageguy, I think you may be wrong about hot much interest in the casting. I think it might be nice to have two different versions of the Challenger. And I think the cut down version of the one with the car on the back end would be a great 3rd version. Just my opinion, for what its worth. And I think you need to make sure in the desription that it is noit the same version as the kit. I saw your mention of it here but those that did not, might be much more likely to purchase on if that is specified in big bold print. At first that is what I thought until I read your info in the post. I thought maybe someone had done a straight re-cast of the kit before it was rereased.

    You have to tell us how you did the great looking fender exhaust. But please dont tell me it is not really connected to the headers! Very nice the way it looks and I would like to "borrow" that design for a couple of my Willys

    Tommy, BTW I would still be buying the '77 if the quality is there. If it was like a TKM, no thnaks!!
  10. socal76 added a post in a topic AMT 1966 Pro Street Nova   

    The kit indeed does have part numbers to tell which is for what side, but like many modelers we just trim them off the tree so fast we do not pay attention. If you look at your sheet you have posted, the left is part #34 and the right is part #35. I kind of know this because I did exactly as I described when I built my first one!
  11. socal76 added a post in a topic Does anyone make Weld Pro Star Wheels in 1/24 scale?   

    Can-Con, just told him the same thing in his other post here, Used to buy those kits for about $5.00, when they were cheaper than now.
  12. socal76 added a post in a topic HAs anyone made Weld Pro Star wheels in 1/24th scale?   

    The Glidden Pro Stock Thunderbird has those and the rears are much wider that in the Mustang. Bought a bunch of those T-Birds for the wheels when they were cheaper!

    I have a vise like that too. I got mine at Radio Shack a number of years ago.
  14. socal76 added a post in a topic 1977 Dodge Monaco/Crestwood wagon.   

    Tommy, I was not trying to downplay how the kit would be received, as I think the demand would be there. Just a personal preference since most of the choices I make are drag cars. and I can already think of 3 of the earlier style. And to give you a request for maybe your 2nd project a '66 Chevy Impala wagon, to fit Revell's recently discontinued but still able to be found '66 Impala SS.

    I don't remember him having a '34, but I do remember the Duese's Wild Funny Car (a '32 obviously) and 2 different VW's. One was designed to fit the Wild Wille kit and was called "Onerey Otto" and the other one was for a current (at the time) Revell 80-90's F/C kit and was called the "Bug Zapper".
