    Paid $500 for a factory sealed 1968 Color Me Gone Charger funnycar
    Came to my senses a few years later and sold it......for the same $500.
     
    But the past  years I've been on a buying spree...and have bought a bunch of old annuals buitlups.....most were in the. $50 -75 range...but I do have a few go over $100

    Anyone know if any wheels like this are avail anywhere ?

  3. gtx6970 added a post in a topic What predictions can we make for new kit releases in 2017?   

    Pretty bold prediction . But I certainly hope they all come true
  4. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Chevy Nomads --whats currently avail ?   

    So my only option for a 1/25th scale 1957 is the issue laden Revell kit ?
     
    I already have a 55 for myself so I knew what its like. I think the 56 is a discontinued piece, same for the Revell kit ? which means the secondary market for both
    If so I will let him know

    Chevy Nomads --whats currently avail ?
    Ok, I've been asked if I can / would I do a Nomad series of kits for a friend of mine.
    Primarily the tri 5 cars - 55 to 57 years preferred ( I cant think of any other produced in stryene ) I know of some later model year wagons but no other  Nomads,,,or are there ?
     
    What's currently avail, I have an AMT  55,,,,and  I see there is a 56. Is the multi-piece opening door revell kit the only option for a 57  - they must all be 1/25th scale or he's not interested.
    I did an Ebay search for Nomads and it came back with all kinds of hit's,,,but I'm not positive which ones are readily avail

    REALLLY like this one, especially the color combo
  8. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Most accurate kit(s) ever (1/24-25)?   

    Agreed
    To my eye the roof is to bubbled to much in the center compared to the 1/1 and to the original MPC issue. And it sure hasn't hurt the value of the original annuals. Decent originals will easily pull $30 if its nice and uncut ( sometimes more )  , you can almost double that for the 1972 model year version.
    I think I have two or three of the  71's but only one 72 and maybe 1 or 2 of the 73-74  versions ( none are for sale btw )
     
     
    And for the record I think the current 55 - 56 Chrysler 300 kits are  pretty darn close to dead on the 1/1 ( IMO )

    The MPC 1969 Charger 500 has 2 Cragers that are pretty deep. I have a couple sets I will NOT be using
