I've seen many 1:1 T's on tour running Fronty heads so you would not be outside the realm of reality if you use one. I like where you are going with this. The 26-7 T Touring cars are one of my all time favorite cars ever.
A while back I thought I heard a rumor that ICM was considering moving the Packard kit and the Mercedes 770 up to 1:24 scale. Can anyone out there either confirm or refute this rumor? Thanks in advance Eric
I too got burned in this deal. I guess my opinion is that he must be pretty desperate for something. I can look myself in the mirror every morning. If he can too well okay. On the other hand things like this usually come to roost sooner or later. There was another person who burned me in the past but he too seems to have disappeared. Like most of you, I will continue to trade but will be more careful in the future.
I have a Lil John 26 Ford model t sedan delivery street rod by Revell, new in the box. I'm Looking To Trade For A 1:24 Scale Bugatti Royale or a Monogram Packard. The Chevy in the photo is gone. Thanks.
My all time favorite car is the Duesenberg J. I guess I am going to be the voice of dissent and say I like the car and would add that your work on this sows ear is fantastic. Great job all around. I HAVE to get one of these.
I still have the Olds available. I have also added these two. I am not sure if this Mercury is 100% there but if not it is close. The Starliner is new in a sealed box. The 55 Chevrolet is mostly complete but is missing tires and the engine. The 26 T is new in a sealed box. Still interested in the same sort of models listed above or maybe a 27 T from AMT or a Monogram '30 model A ford.
So here is the story, which I have experienced first hand working for an auto upholstery shop. The owner (coincidentally of a 29 Rolls town car) had the car repainted, did some chrome work, got it running and driving, and had us upholster the front seat and add carpet throughout, as that was pretty grubby. On the other hand he just couldn't bring himself to replace the totally original upholstery in the rear passenger compartment. Perhaps the custodian of Cato's Rolls felt the same way. There's your reasonable back story. By the way, the owner of the real Rolls in this story won his class.
