What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)


Recommended Posts

I went to the Kalamazoo toy show yesterday for some styrene therapy and picked up a resin '50 Olds sedan delivery body, an Airfix boxed Peugeot 206WRC rally car, a Revell '69 Dart, a Porsche 962 and a Toyota 88 C by Hasegawa. I also found some wood grain that applies like BMF. That should be interesting.

New Powerslide decals offering an alternative to doing the new Salvinos JR 1971 "Chrysler Plymouth" as a Petty car.

Nice!  I like the Norm Nelson decals!!!  Bobby Unser drove a Chris Vallo purple Road Runner to a win at the Milwaukee Mile back in the day if I remember correctly.  That was the first of the "mystery" money men that I can ever remember in racing.  Now it seems pretty common to get funny munny in racing these days!

These arrived today. And the price for the kits and postage we really cheap. Each kit was $23 except the Firebird was $24. Postage was $12.59. A bargain I think. Ordered them on Friday and they arrived today.

Powerslide is doing three variants (on one sheet) of the CV Roadrunner as well as the red Petty Enterprises #99 one driven by Fred Lorenson in January.

I got one of these today off ebay...

Pretty sure it's a motorized kit. But it looks like it could be very nice.

According to the instructions on scalemates it is indeed motorized.

The body is really nice, prob won’t need paint. Tilt/Marui has great Pantera, best ever done, and BMW 3.5 CSL. Lots of others. 
Nice find. Make great curbside, but has under hood details.

Yea a Pantera is on my procurement list... haven't decided wich one... I don't think any were produced as full detail kits as far as I know...

As for the Lambo, I'm considering wanting to reproduce this.

that is just a really weird combination of sexy and tough... one of my favorite looking vehicles from the rear ever!

That kit makes a great Jota like that. 
Their Pantera has best body and wheels ever. 


I’ve got all of them, they did 1:24 Ferrari 312T, Tyrell 007, and McLaren M24, really great kits. Ignore motorized stuff. They look great. 
Wish molds would appear, but well over 20y since last seen. 
I’d not bother with opening everything up. 
Have fun. 
Hasegawa makes a nice Jota too. But I like body on Tilt better.

For my Cars I Used to Own project.

Just picked up one of these on feebay. Sealed kit! Sure, these are curbside, snap kits, but the are 1/25 and will work with the bin full of parts from the deserter kit alone and are really good looking when finished. I have an Olson bros. winch bumper set that will fit (not too sure about the future of that co.). Already have a set of Fireball tires in the bin picked out for this one. I'm thinking the 1/25 wheels from the Deserter kit will look nice with this kit. Should be nice on the shelf in the end.

My friend Todd brought this by today. I opened it up and the tires are fantastic. They must be the amt parts pack tires that I used on my 67 camaro. Seems like a good kit. I will build it and see which kit I like better.

Not much but I did get a really neat decal sheet for the Chaparral 2D from Starfighter Decals.

https://www.starfighter-decals.com/2406-texas-roadrunners-2d-24062.html

It will go well with my two Monogram kits and the Fujimi one (which I believe is a repop from the Modeler's kit.

It is a nice kit on the whole... I built one several years back. Not the best work on my end but I was just getting back into it at the time. Pictures are terrible sorry. 20191130_012613.thumb.jpg.10820794ea57ec5301d72ceb19543b0f.jpg20191130_012059.thumb.jpg.db78451d82125cc005d996edd5e2cace.jpg
