      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

  1. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Let's See Some Glue Bombs!   

    This is about as close as I get to a 'Glue Bomb'  I traded a car I was in fairly reasonable cash wise for it. So its not something I would buy or bid on unless it was cheap enough to take the chance all this 'stuff' would come off easily. ( this one sure looks like it will clean up pretty well with a reasonable effort )
  2. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Testors Spray Can seeping, anyone else have this happen?   

    I had a Tamiya can seep out this yellow gold  looking stuff around the bottom of the can.
    It was less than maybe 10 months old at the max..
     
    Yet I've cans on the shelf 20 years old with no issues
  3. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Any Revell 70 Charger kits at HL yet?   

    I was at the one local to me a few weeks  ago.
    And I didn't see any
  4. gtx6970 added a post in a topic small zip-lock bags, ~3-4"   

    Staples. Office Depot or Office max
     
    Or if you want an endless array of sizes try Uline.com
     
     
  5. gtx6970 added a post in a topic How many scales?   

    Model kits it' pretty much 1.25th exclusively .
     
    I do have  some diecast  in 1.24th and  1.18th 
  6. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Wish List wants   

    I have a spare 64 comet and may have a 70 cougar I might part with.
     
    Which Pinto decal sheet ?
  7. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Golden Commandos 1965 Plymouth   

    Correct, this car was very short lived.
    Basically thrown together to compete at I think the Winternationals .( not 100% sure of the race )  then pulled down and it became the Altered wheelbase car via Ambelwagon
     
    Mine will be built I assure you.

    Other than it drives the demand up ( aka price ) to the limits.  And adds fuel to the fire for the feeding frenzy
     
     
    I would like to have one, but am not aware of anyone doing the decals for this particular car.  If they are please let me know
    Ive already talked to my primary local hobby shop and he cant get Model King kits. So I may stop by my secondary LHS to ck there the one day this week  .

    Nice,
    What did you use for the  interior color ?
  10. gtx6970 added a post in a topic New kit tool to break cover at this Sunday's NNL Motor City?   

    I guess I'm not a modeler , or even breathing. The new vette is neat to look at , but I have ZERO interest to build a kit of one. To be honest ,,,,There's  nothing produced for 2018 that I would consider to build a 1/125th scale replica of ,,,unless someone was paying me to do so .
     
    As for the 64-65 Nova, ,,,,meh.  I was actually hoping for either the 68 Coronet or 67-68 Cougar
    I surely wish them luck  with the Nova and they sell millions of copies. But none will be to me .  The Ford F150,,,,eh , Maybe

    I sure hope this one makes it .
  12. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Little Red Wagon   

    IMC made the 1st one. then Lindberg label came many MANY years later. Exactly when they ended up with it, I have no idea

     
  13. gtx6970 added a post in a topic What Model Is Your Sentimental Favorite And Why?   

    Ive got several. From builds I did many MANY years ( and actually still have )  Such as my Johan Sox and Martin 1969 Roadrunner. And my Monza IMSA looking thing , Its my very first attempt to do a multi color fade paint job ( all rattle cans ). Both of these were  built back in the late 70s to early 80s time frame
    Those are the 2 at the top of my list. Followed by some kits Ive built in the past 15 years that are replicas of kits I built when I was a kid in the early 70s ( thank god for ebay find builders and modern day re-issues )
    The Barry Setzer Vega I bought  a really nice case for it  to just display it alone. Built from an ebay find maybe 15 years ago of a mostly unbuilt MPC kit that had been tinkered with slightly. Using original kit decals to btw
    I have others But I have to say these are probably my most prized and will go NOWHERE while I'm still breathing.

    This ( or preferably a 1961 ) Would sure get my heart beating pretty good.
    I love the late 50s and early 60s Mopar fin cars

    Not a bad idea. Although I personally would prefer them backdate the 67 GTX into a 1966 Satellite
