Barn Finds :)

Recommended Posts

I picked up a small collection of built models this week, mostly very vintage funny cars, customs and show cars from the late 1960s, early 1970s. I have lots of restoring to do :)

Wow! That's quite the haul of early stuff! Quite a few I wouldn't mind having. Great find!

Some interesting stuff there! 

A few are worth cleaning up and displaying as-is. Others are worth major rebuilding effort.

I remember Bad Medicine, Red Baron and that funky Vette kit from my youth years. Nice find and haul!!

That's a nice haul Howard! What a trip down memory lane. You'll have fun restoring those! I had one of those Eldon Sand Draggin' kits when I was a kid.

That's the original Barris Moonscope kit from 1970 later modified to the Space 1999 model. That appears to be a fairly rare kit and I've never seen another built beside my own survivor,  painted AMT Candy Blue (that explains how old it is) but what I can't explain is the four 1999 variants sitting beside it. modelling can become obsessive. I have at least one of the 1999 unbuilt if you need spare parts.

Forgot that I built the Big Deal VW Bus, long gone.
