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

Recommended Posts

From my recent parts trips

3 empty air boxes for the downstairs family room . I picked up for the most part just because I think there cool.

Although I would like to get a 64 Lemans convertible builder for the stash someday.

Isn't that a coincidence.

I actually have a '64 Lemans convertible that I bought at an antique shop many years ago.

Under the right conditions, I may be persuaded to let it go. ;)

Well, this was a stunner. Made a lowball bid and surprisingly won it:

X-El '59 DeSoto. It will be getting the guts and part of the roof from a '57 Chrysler 300 that I put away years ago for just this occasion, becoming a two-door Sportsman hardtop. It'll stay a Fireflite, however, not an Adventurer. Does anyone have a suggestion for a source for an accurate '59 Wedge V8? Or maybe a dual quad 413...

Has anyone here tried such a conversion?

This showed up in my mailbox this week. My dad ran across it, NIB, at a discount store on the east coast, and picked it up for less than $12.  It had been on my wish list, and Amazon currently has them for $55+. The customization possibilities are endless, and I'm really looking forward to getting into this kit.

I started a convertible conversion on this promo many years ago, but kind of gave up on it for lack of an accurate interior.

You could probably use the engine straight from the AMT '58 Plymouth Fury kit.

As far as dual quad early Mopars go, you could see if you could come up with some early '60s Johan engine parts, especially the air cleaners, & I'm sure you could cobble something together.

Chris, all the pinnings and the engine from the AMT 57 Chrysler should fit real good..The Desoto and Chrysler were sister cars..59 body style changed but the workings were the same..

The Johan 59 DeSoto and Chrysler are two of my favorite possessions. I'm not interested in opening the hoods but if anyone were to offer interiors for them, I'd be a taker.

Picked these up at the flea market. 62 Continental, 62 Catalina, 59 Ford and an Avanti. Lincoln and Pontiac missing hoods but seem complete otherwise. Ford missing bumpers.

Fresh off the plane from Germany.

A couple of diorama photo backdrops from Scale Productions. One pit lane and one street background. As well as their new 918 wheel/brake upgrade set.

I still have to trim up and glue the photo's to the backing boards.

You can see some close ups of this product here http://www.scaleproduction.de/product_info.php?info=p2212_20-21--bbs-wheel-set-p918-spyder--revell-.html if you didn't know about it. Quality is very good, a very tiny bit of clean up will be needed, but no more than a normal injection molded piece.

That's very cool.  What is a person that doesn't speak/read German supposed to do though?

Ran to the junkyard and got a replacement seat for my Malibu.  Going from a manual cloth seat to a leather, power heated seat.  :)

Today I got AMT's Motorcycles & Accessories/Double Dirt Bikes. Pretty cool. I sure it's been brought up before? But, what are these bikes originally models of? What brand of bike? What model and/or displacement?

The bikes are modeled after Yamaha's DT-1 250 Enduro. Also called a "Trail" 250. The real full-size bike came out in 1968, and is considered by some as one of those landmark motorcycles.
