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
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 ?
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
WOW, Very nice. I was in my local HL yesterday to pick up some paint. And they had this kit on the mark down isles. And for 17.99 I couldn't leave it there. Ive always thought this was a beautiful looking car then and now. Ive never been much of a FED model builder but this one will be in my case for sure . And I have it on the bench right now and would really appreciate any build tips anyone can provide . Im planning to build it as the scooped version with the front wheel fairings . I think it looks cleaner . Haven't decided yet if I'll actually put the engine in it or not. Have to pick up some blue in the next day or so . The orange/red I am going to use is a Mopar touchup color called Candy Tangerine I bought for a different build but decided to go with a different color on it
Same here, I ordered the pens mainly for dash bezels , steering wheel horn rings. And the occasional under hood touch on engine parts / chrome valve covers as an example. Seriously doubt I'll ever use them on any body exterior trim
I would be real curious the longevity of these pens finish over time . How well they retain there brilliance
Jesse, The Koach does have the Cobra valve covers ( dont remember if the Dragula did or not , and if it does you cant see them anyway once the body is on ) But the engines are so far under scale in both its unreal. And if one decided to build a drive train in a more correct scale I don't think the body would fit down over them . Thats one of the reasons I don't think either car would make very good parts kits. Ive been on a simple kit build run lately. The Koach isnt done yet as I'm going to do the wind shield frame with the chrome pen when my order arrives . But I like this picture . My daughter did a snap kit build of the Polar Lights 66 Batmobile and its in the other side if this case . Once completed, I'll take a better group photo of them all
I present ( and in my best Fred Gwynne voice ) I present the cars of my yuth.
I wonder if one could make a mold with aluminum foil off an existing lense. Sit in baked clay as an example. Lay a predetermined slice of cut off clear sprue in said mold . then put it in an oven to basically melt and form itself to the foil.
I guess it would only work if you could remove the foil once cooled
