I have one coming from a friend at Round 2, and so I ordered four to give away for Christmas....

They got here today, thankfully well before the Holidays.....

As I've noted before, the Kat from AMT is cool. And I'm glad I got one.

Yesterday the mail man dropped off my latest .

And original issue SMP 1959 Corvette builtup. I ts had the goofy custom stuff glued to it but not real heavily and should clean up without to much effort. Best part it was pretty reasonable all things considered. Bonus was its in its original box .

Are they only available through mail order..?..and how much...?

Go to Auto World's web site. I know I paid less than $20.00 for mine with shipping. Though I did also use a $5.00 off coupon that came with buying their catalog.

It sounds small, but he is only 4" high. Like I say, it sounds small. But, it seems big enough.

Kind of went a little bit overboard ordering paint from Tower Hobbies during their free shipping for Black/cyber sales, also purchased the 918, but it was shipped from a different warehouse and not arrived yet.  Really, I just needed to restock my flat black and SGB bottles........

Took advantage of this week's 25% off on models special at Hobby Lobby to pick up a set of AMT wide and narrow whitewalls, and used my 40% off coupon to get an erasing shield - it's photoetched mesh in a circle pattern that's a very close match to grille of the '58 Ford I'm working on:

The area isn't too large (2 1/4" x 3 3/8") but it was only $3.49 before the discount - handy if you need a small piece.

Nice finds Christian!

I have one of the Hobby Heaven repops of the '70 Ford.

Not sure if I'll ever build it.

I've already pirated a few parts from it. :o

Yup, the Hobby Heaven kit is a 4 door sedan with all of the police car parts.

Ah. But using parts from Modelhaus you can easily convert the Galaxie back to the LTD. As I did recently.

I don't know a lot about them.

I'm not much for 4 door cars so I never really had much interest in these kits.

I picked up the Hobby heaven Galaxie years ago on a whim.

That '70 LTD was like a lost child.
I now have the entire AMT 1970 Motor City Stocker Series. Complete. Done and dusted.
How many people outside the USA can claim this?

Not many...there odd and many do not like them or snap and curbside kits.  I have never minded if they were or not...at times I prefer them over the others.  Me I love the 60s 4 doors and wagons...not every car on any given street is a top of the line muscle car and its nice to be able to break from them at times....:)

Picked these up at the flea market this weekend. Bought the Harley Saturday for $2.00 and the rest Sunday for $4.00. Not a bad deal for $6.00 total investment.
