    refinding kits long forgotten is a good thing. Its the not being able to find what you know you DO have is the hard part.
     
    Just about a month ago I was rooting around in some boxes and found a Johan Superbird I forgot I had. I started it nearly 15-20 years ago and put it away for some reason . Its now on the bench and WILL be completed later this year . Its a replica of a friend of mines Petty blue w/ white interior car . sixbarrel auto

    FYI, posting pictures of the actual car isnt fair

    Oh, I 'd like to have that one.
    I have two 1960 Lincolns and finding a clean '59 that isnt either heavily customized or glue bombed seems to be a touch tougher than finding either one of my 60s.
  10. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Whats the weirdest kit in your stash?   


    it would be in my stash.
    I replied earlier in this thread , the weirdest piece I have is a Corvette. .Yea, I'm boring that way.

    Old annuals
    I am well aware this is a long shot but will ask anyway .......I am looking to finish out my long wish list of old annuals
    WANTED  - decent builders prefered ,,not really to interested in an unbuilt kit unless its cheap / reasonable . I am also not looking for junk or freebies. I am more than willing to trade for or pay fair market value . And I woudl prefer obviously  as complete as I can get, but am willing to take a partial kit if the value is there

    Johan 1960 Plymouth Fury
    Johan 1959 Plymouth Fury
    Johan 1960 Chrysler New Yorker
    Johan 1959 Desoto
    Johan 1959  Oldsmobile 4 door
    Johan 1960 Oldsmobile 2 door
    AMT/SMP 1958 Chevrolet convertilbe only ( not interested in a hardtop )
    AMT 1961 Buick convertible only ( not interested in a hardtop )
    AMT/SMP 1959 Lincoln convertible only ( not interested in a hardtop )
     
    I do have a few duplicates of the old annauls I will use as trade material , or ?????
    I have pretty much gathered up everthing else I was looking for of the 58 thru 61 annuals ,,most of which are convertibles.

  13. gtx6970 added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    Not actually HERE yet. But I did manage to snag a couple of old annuals this weekend.
     
    An original issue 1961 Ford Sunliner with the up top. As well as an original issue 1961 Impala convertible.
    Both appeared to be pretty decent and will go in the stash for a later date. I have another 61 Ford builder,,but this one was much more complete then mine.
