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

Recommended Posts

Got one of these, specifically as a cowl-donor (this kit comes with two body shells) to modify Revell's new-tool '30 coupe into a '29.

I also wanted one of the supremely ugly track-noses that comes in this kit to see what it would take to make it look good.

Stopped by Hobby Lobby today. I was disappointed with the selection. Lots of empty spaces. I bought this on sale just because I didn't want to take the trip for nothing,

Dude, that is not a Cobra, what the heck???

Yeah, but it's a really light weight Ford with a big V8 engine. Sortof a Cobra in spirit. I know, it's a stretch.  :D

A special delivery earlier this week from Fireball Modelworks...2 sets of the new Pontiac steel wheel/poverty cap/tire sets and the '69 Coronet side scoop set. Everything looks fantastic.

I just got those poverty caps that I have been looking for years and almost made them from two kits I got just for that. The Chief came through and now I can build the '67 Tempest I had.

Those are gorgeous!

I had to look at the track nose '32 I'm working on after that comment, but I see in the box photo the nose seems to go pretty high to meet the hood .. whew.

I think I'm ok . :lol:

A lot more detail than the old Revell-Mongram Chaparral. Though I do like the old Revell-Mongram version, despite the lack of detail.

   Nice Job Dale. Oh I was aware of the Kits level of Detail 'cause I already had an open one here;)

    There is something to be said about the Winged Daytona Car. It's on the bench now.

I got a real nice resin 27 Ford roadster body. I think I will make the Speed Sport old noisy with it.

Which one ?

A (cheap) boxful of goodness!  From today's local Flea Market.  All this stuff was in one box. Both Chevelles are partly assembled and painted, but very neatly.  The Syclone is untouched and the Sting Ray III sealed.  The box also contained glue, putty, Testors sandpaper, spray cans of paint, bottle paint, some paintbrushes etc.

Those Testors spray cans are marked "$2.47," so they've been around awhile.  Probably doesn't matter, they still rattle.
