      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Got em, Many Thanks Ron . They make this car complete.
    Now just to figure out what direction to build it
  2. gtx6970 added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    Got a set of original seats for my MPC 1969 Coronet from Ron Hamilton. Great guy .
    Thanks Ron, I owe you 1,,,or 2 actually .
  3. gtx6970 added a post in a topic 1963 Pontiac Bonneville Hard Top. 2/20, Foil is Done!   

    WOW,  I didn't think you could top the 62 Chrysler but you might just be headed there with this one bro.
    As you well know black is my hands down favorite color. To bad its a pain to clean ( or keep clean I should say )
  4. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Amx hood   

    Vince, I dont know of anyone doing anything  for a 1970 AMX . Thats one tough cookie to come up with in 1/25th scale.
    Ive got an unbuilt  69 and a stock hood ( Okie Spalding still has the stock hood for a 69 BTW )  I much prefer a 1970 and and havent had any luck picking one up,,,,,, yet.

    OH MY GOD .
    Dude, your killing in. I remember this car very very well. I even have the tape around here when it made the silver state run. Beating a lot of high end exotics along the way .
    I can only imagine the amount of time you have in this ( not to mention cost$ ) just to get it to this point has to be staggering . I'm gonna follow this one bigtime.
     
    PS If those wheels and tires would become avail in resin for 1/25th scale Im interested

    Thanks, Ive read and re-read that post several times. And  I think I have it figured out. I've glued the lower rear and upper halves of the tail together and molded them together as one piece.  Once painted I'll then slide the chassis in place.  And then glue all the forward body panels in place after that.
      I'm after the look of the actual car with the scoop and the front wheel fairings.  To be honest  I just don't care for box art build version with the blower sticking up out of the body work. And mine is going to built  curbside style as well. So the engine and all the blower stuff will go in the parts box . I have to go out this  morning so i'll  pick up some blue paint for the upper rear cowl , windshield frame and wheel fairings.
    But for the most part. So far so, so good
  10. gtx6970 added a post in a topic What a great time of the year for modeling in Phoenix AZ   

    Looking forward to the days in AZ when I can paint , model and just plain work outside year round . I figure thats about 16 months from now
     
  11. gtx6970 added a post in a topic 1960 Ford Starliner Pre Order   

    Some days I wonder what the model manufacturers thought process is on re-issuing kits.
    And this is one of them. I would imagine this will be retailed in the $29 range give or take . One can find this kit in the secondary market for well under $20  all day long. ( bought one a few months ago for $10 still sealed inside. )  And yes I know the manufacturers could care less about the secondary market place. But still ?
     
    Maybe I'm just not familiar with there thinking but to me it would make more sense to bring out something that hasn't seen the light of day , in say the last 20 years for an example. 
    I'll use the 72 Chevy pickups as an example. I would think it would be a much better seller than say this one ,,,or the just re-issued Color Me Gone Dodge
    Anyone know for sure the thinking behind the scenes on how/why/when  a kit gets re-issued ?
  12. gtx6970 added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    Wow, won another one over the weekend .
    Wasnt really looking for another vert ( I have a pretty nice one already ) . But I threw a bid on it the last for minutes thinking I would get outbid at the last minute.
    Got up today only to find out I won the thing.  It looks like  a pretty decent builder in the pics

    My wife and mother in law used to own a hair / nail tanning salon.

    WOW -  killer paint finish .
  15. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Dodge Q3 light turquoise   

    I stand corrected. Looks like it MIGHT have been  avail on 1970 B body models.  In all my years Ive never seen or heard of one in that color.
     
    This isn't the end all on color availability so don't take it as gospel .
     
    Look around here for more info
