  1. Does anyone have a scrap 1/25 AMT/Round2 1966 Oldsmobile 442 body in a parts box somewhere? I have all the parts I need to swap that kit's chassis underneath my newly-purchased '64 Olds Convertible kit, but I still need the inner-front fenders from that '66 442 body. Anyone have one that's "junk" (except for those inner front fenders)? I have parts to trade... thanks!
  2. Wasn't too excited until you added that Sandcat Dune Dragster... don't think that kit has been available for some time!
  3. Michelle, I found the one-piece chassis for the AMT '65 GTO kit... PM me with your mailing address and I'll send it out to you in a day or two. Mark
  4. I've probably got the chassis for you; let me go into the kit vault and dig it out... I'll PM you in a couple of hours.
  5. Thanks for sharing these pics, Pickles! What they show certainly looks good!
  6. Got an email this afternoon from Model Roundup; my pre-order is on it's way to me... hallelujah!
  7. Steve, Thanks for the info, but I'm actually using these decals on a completely different kit project, not on a Revell '66 Goat, and Tom's got just what I need already on the way to me. Thanks again Tom! Moderators; this post can be deleted.
  8. I am looking to trade for the (2) 1/25 GTO rear-quarter panel emblem decals (#9) from the Revell 1966 Pontiac GTO kit's decal sheet; just looking for the dark-silver-colored decals that are the letters GTO that mount to the rear quarter panels about mid-fender height at the very rear of the fenders.
  9. Looks like a couple of kits I'll be wanting to purchase here... any idea what kit has "leaked-into" the bottom of that Henry-J photo? Looks like it might be an early-1970's Mopar.
  10. Beautiful build! It's too bad these old Desoto and Chrysler kits are long-gone and unlikely kits for a new-n-improved new tooling.
  11. Stunning build! Your paintwork is phenomenal. It's a bit of a shame that the Hemi Shaker air cleaner is so large that it hides some many engine details... sure would be fun to have a 1:1 of this build parked inside my garage!
  12. Fantastic build! Sure would like to see a picture or two of it sitting on its own wheels!
  13. This is my 2nd completion for 2021, although this build actually started way back in the mid/late-1990's... I decided it was time to drag it to the finish-line. This is the 1/25 AMT/Ertl 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS454 kit. Back-story is my wife's best friend in high school, Gigi, (in the late-1970's), was given a used, 1:1 1969 SS396/4-speed in Pale Yellow by her parents for her 17th birthday, (wish I had parents like that). Gigi drove her car everywhere, and my wife was her constant-companion. After owning it for nearly a year, Gigi got good enough at driving it well that she occasionally
  14. Those colors are amazing together... a really nice build!
  15. That's extremely good news Snake as your atypical-methods are usually extremely effective!!! 😃
  16. Well; sorta available now... if you're willing to pay that crazy Ebay price and have it ship from Japan!
  17. Just as I expected; outstanding craftsmanship underneath as well... this is an exceptional build!
  18. Stunning build! Your paintwork looks phenomenal as well as the decal work. Even without underhood reference I think you nailed that engine and compartment and I think the same thing regarding the chassis... nicely done!
  19. Great builds! The size-comparison between these two cars surprises me a bit; in my mind the XKE seems like it would be a slightly-overall larger car than the Corvette, but your builds really make that XKE seem petite.
  20. Really nice build! Sure would like to see some underhood pics and also what that T-bird chassis looks like underneath... but please take it inside for those pics!
  21. Looks like the arrival-date for this long-awaited kit keeps moving backwards; looks like mid/late April now. I wonder if these are stranded on a cargo ship waiting in line to finally port at San Diego harbor?!?*+?
  22. Really like these salvaged Jeeps! The color of this one has inspired me to get the same color on a project that I have in the works!
  23. My parents had 4 family-room "lounge" chairs in that Black-n-White pattern seen at the right-edge of the photo... my dad's poker-playing buddies would come over on Saturday nights for a "late-in-the-evening" poker match, and after drinking Manhattans for a few hours, they'd say looking at those chairs they were sittin'-in might make 'em puke... pretty sure that happened more than a few times!!!
  24. Love this build! What color is the main body color... I've got a project that I'd like to use a color just like yours.
