    Nice kit. I had to sell my Mapex M Birch 6 piece kit about 10 years ago when the company I was working for decided to shut down.

    I didn't let this go, though:



    I was never wild about tube lugs, but I really do like that wrap. My next set will probably be Ludwig maple, or even Mahogany, whenever that might occur. For a brief time, I had a Pearl Mahogany tom, 11x13, that sounded utterly amazing.

    My 1/1 scale 46 Ford still has MC under the floor. It has Mustang II suspension front and rear but the builder (not me) left it under the floor. 

    Interesting to know. Thanks.

    Here's one I did years ago.   I could never really decide what to do with it.  Not good enough to build as a shiny rod.  SO I built it like maybe a guy would do at home.   A fun ride for low bucks.

    Looks cool to me.

    I love that kit. 

    Very interested in seeing it finished.  

    Thanks. Don't look to see it in the near future though, as I'm working hot and heavy on a big 1:16 scale Jagdtiger right now.

    Great score !

    Just a bit envious though, this is on my wishlist as well.

    Yes, a great score on my part, and just a weird coincidence; a chance comment that I really wanted one eventually (in a thread on another forum that had absolutely nothing to do with cars), followed but a couple of PMs from a guy, and the deal was made. It appears to be 100% complete, just as he said it was too.

    Nice haul, and congrats. I'm sure that you'll find the instructions for it. Have you checked the Big Boyz column on this site?

    I already snatched them from the site below, but thanks anyway, for sure.

    Yep, I googled the instructions and that site came up. Already downloaded all 28 pages, so I'm good to rock. Thanks a bunch.

    Wow. Just wow. That's a big tank. The Mitsu J2M3's pretty cool too. I've never seen one.

    Oh, yes, the Jagdtiger box is just ginormous. The Jack is one that I'd been seeking for a while, and I finally found one at a price that I thought reasonable, so I'm pretty happy.

    It’s on the “first” page of the flier.

    It was May = Indy & Formula1 and Oct = Buick.

    Now Oct = Indy, Formula1 and Buick possibly 

    OK, thanks a bunch. I'll have nothing for those categories, but I still hope to enter a car or two, regardless.

    As far as an ignition device, the kit engine has a magneto instead of a distributor so no external coil is required. I cannot recall but the master brake cylinder may be on the firewall. 

    I appreciate that, but someone had already been good enough to enlighten me on that, as I had no idea. No brake cylinder though, not anywhere. In the grand scheme of things, it's probably not really that big of a deal, but by depicting the engine in a visible manner (there are no vertical hood segments), it seems it would have been wise to include those items that would be readily seen.
