    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
    Johan 1959 Plymouth
    Johan 1960 Chrysler New Yorker
    Johan 1959  Oldsmobile 4 door and 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.

  3. 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.

    Just my opinion, But I think the fact these kits are cheap ,,,and it keeps many casters from even thinking about it.
    I bought 2 or 3 of them at a local model swap meet last april and I dont think I paid more than $15 for any of them . Buying one off the net may be cost prohibitive though just to use it as parts. ( sorry I bought mine basically for parts )

    I have 3 of  1963 Plymouth kits, 2 each of the 62 Dodge and Plymouths and they all have the exact same dash ,,neither of them look like either of these shown here
  8. gtx6970 added a post in a topic How many people fully detail a model?   

    Although I do enjoy looking and following along on all the super detailed builds. But for me personally I dont have the drive, inclination or patiance to do them myself anymore. And I dont do contests so my builds are for me and me only .
    About as far beyond box stock I go anymore is carpeting (in a convertible only )  and some underhood wiring ( spark plug wires and battery cables )
    On a funnycar build I MIGHT add some  fuel lines bacause they are so visible  ,,,but thats rare
    On a side note I am not above buying a kit already built if the subject is someting I like . But I'm a tight wad so its rare this happens
  9. gtx6970 added a post in a topic polar lights mustang funny car body   

    Not to mention the wheelbase is off slightly on the body compared the  chassis .
    Otherwise I think they're pretty close

  13. gtx6970 added a post in a topic 1965 Dodge Monaco. Update, 2/2 Chassis   

    Done yet? Come on now, chop chop. Times a wastin.
    How about I send you my convertible and you send it back to me done as nice as this one . All just because your such a nice guy.
    No rush take your time if you want to think about it . I doubt I'll get to it this year ( or next for that matter )
  14. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Big John Mazmanian - Clear body Cuda AA/FC   

    Thanks for the kind words.Its one of my favorite cars.
    The parachute has since been added to it.
    But, and the more I  look at it, the more I dislike the gold rear wheels. in 90% of the pictures I have of this car it has chrome wheels all around. So they will probably get changed here soon
  15. gtx6970 added a post in a topic AMT Retro Deluxe '63 Corvette   

    Thanks I got a little chuckle out of that one. Got my day off to a good start
    I have always liked the split window Vettes. I may have to pick one of these up here soon . Thinking black ( or silver ) with red interior Fuelie small block 4 spd.
