My 32 roadster kit arrived.  

I still haven’t built my 32 roadster from the FIRST issue that I bought a few of when it first was released (the red streetrod version), but I was still excited for this to arrive today 🤪

Some time back I snagged a Modelhaus '57 Mercury Monterey hardtop...

Just A Car Guy: 1957 Mercury Monterey Mermaid

 

When I was a kit I always wanted a Mercury Turnpike Cruiser. The one with the antenna pods one each end at the top of the windshield.

Went in with a friend to purchase a collection and pics of my half of the kits.  Most are sealed and will be going on ebay soon.  Contact me if you're interested in any.  I think the old 3 in 1 kits are fairly rare.

Cool cool cool. I'm trying to overcome my lust for a few of those. If I fail, I'll PM ya.   :D

Looks like a lifetime worth of kits. These would all be very desirable to a collector, but from strictly a builder standpoint Round 2 has reissued all of these a few times over.  That said, the fine details on the bodies and other parts should be much sharper than reissues using well-worn molds.

Just received a  factory - sealed Ferrari 250 GTO from 1988 (Italeri rebox) - from ebay Germany.P1070460.JPG.538e65aba49827eae9922bfa45c83ec8.JPG

You can't have enough GTO's...

No, no you can’t. That’s Italeri rebox, imo the best looking kit save for tires/wheels. Though wheels serviceable. RoG reboxed Protar later, but rear fenders are mess on it. I don’t have that issue. 😢

I had exactly this one back in 1988, built it, but used the numbers/roundels for my Esci SWB back then. I also have several Italeris, 2 Fujimis, 1 Gunze and the Revell (ex.-Protar) which looks like the hunchback from Notre-dame and will only be used with a resin conversion body.
