Somebody stop me...... but in my defence it was a superbly cheap kit for such a rare kit

Went to a slot car swap meet this morning and picked up a few good things. One is a very nice 1967 Chrysler 300 promo. I got it at very good price. It's missing a hood ornament (with Modelhaus gone, anybody have any ideas on where I might be able to get a replacement?), and some slight but easy to fix damage to the "A" pillar and vent wing. Beyond that the chrome is pretty good. And she needs a little cleaning. 

Besides that, I picked up two Lindberg 1/32 snap kits, at a really good price. Both are unopened. Not the greatest kits in the world, but where else are you going find a round headlamp Monte of that vintage? Or a Grand Am. I'm happy to have them.

Picked up not one, but two 1:24 Monogram kits of the 1931 Rolls-Royce Henley Roadster on the friendly Ebay site. One is unbuilt and one is already built.

Sweet! Is it light blue or light green? Looks one way in some pics, the other in others. I think mine is light blue. I would LOVE to have one molded in the green yours looks like. I'd polish that beauty out!

Finally found this at a reasonable price. :)

Box open, but bags sealed.

I'm amazed what has become "collectible", this for example.   I built the BTCC version last century, looked at what people are asking for, and about pooped my pants.

A little bit of primer, then you can paint it any color you wish. Had one about thirty years ago. Wish I had one today. I actually like the Marlin. I never understood why the real car didn't sell better. Especially, IMO, the best looking one, the '67.

I stopped in tonight to see a buddy of mine and give him some used 1/8 parts that I got in a trade. He was so very kind to give me these.

This is complete.

This is only missing the racing seats and cowl hood.

I think that I might agree with you on that.

Not sure about the front end treatment, but they did work some of the "dumpiness" out of it.

Although, I much prefer the rebel SST.

Tell me that AMC & Mopar weren't swiping ideas from each other!

Can anybody say "Road Runner"?

I love the styling, mainly the front end, of the 1967 Ambassadors and Marlins. If I could really could own one of them, it would be the Ambassador convertible. Followed by the Marlin. Some day I hope to add an Ambassador convertible promo model to my collection. Lovely cars. Some of the best to come Kenosha.

Love that Olds. She's certainly worthy of restoration. Looks like the body, other than the sat-on roof, is remarkably straight.

Man there are some great finds here great stuff everyone. 

So after CrazyRick posted his 1/24 scale completed Road Coach. I reached out to him for find out where he got it. Turns out the guy who 3D printed his version also had a 1/12 version, so I jumped at the chance,. It's something I have been thinking about for the past 8yrs.

The sad news, it is no where near 1/12, those are 1/12 scale F1 tire's. This shell appears to be closer to 1/16 scale. I am now on the hunt for the Revell 1/16 Big Bad Van kit.

The tire's are about as close as I can figure for this shell.

Thanks Jesse for the suggestion. I have, they're too small. The rear tire's from the MPC 1/16 Cobra kit look about the right height, but the fronts are too tall.
