  1. Hey dwc43! Ya did me a solid! I bought 2 turbo sets, and a set of whls. and tires! $44.66! Excellent.
  2. '56 Chevy, parts still in bags. '57 Chevy parts still in bags., Camaro '06, complete. Shelby Hertz GT350H complete.
  3. This is to replace my other 2 posts, i.e., "4 kits to trade". Thanks.
  4. Hi. Looking for 2 small turbos for the AMT Pontiac Firebird GTA, 1/25, '91. I don't want the kit-turbos, something better. These 2 turbos should be 5.0mm wide, or less, and 6.0mm in diameter, or less. I intend to make the exhaust out of solder. I like this body style, with the beak-like nose. Also it has the GTA Turbo body-kit and hood. Any help or suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.
  5. OK, I have your street address; here's mine:  Jeff Bolthouse, 4486 Brookmere Dr. SE, Kentwood, MI  49512.  I will get your package out today or tomorrow.  Jeff

      Thank you, I'll try to get mine out in a day or two.


  6. Hi Paul. I see that you are interested in the Bugatti engine. I will mock up the 2 engines and see what it is going to take to transplant the RR Merlin engine. I have been looking in my house for the Merlin kit and I have not found it yet! The Merlin is a V12 or a V16? I was surprised at what a nice kit it is. I think it has 4 chrome trees! Are you quite knowledgeable about the Bug. engine? In the directions it has some interesting details on this Bug engine. If you send me you email, I will email you a copy of the instructions. Jeff
  7. Hi afx. I have the Revell 914/6 1/25 kit. Any opinion on what tires might fit these Fuchs wheels? And if anybody wants the Fuchs wheels in my Revell Porsche 914/6 kit, let me know. If I can't find the correct (kit) tires, then I might as well 'let these wheels go'. Or better yet, trade the whole kit without the tires. Any offers/trades?
  8. Thank you, Richard. I bought a Lindberg Bugatti Victoria, '31, for $23.36 all in. A good price for me I think. I have a 'Rolls Royce Merlin' engine from Alan Raab. At one time he produced both the RR Merlin and the Packard Merlin, both looked substantially different from one another. Yes, I'm going to try to put it in the Bugatti. I may have to create a few 'bulges' in hood!
  9. Thanks for the input, everybody. I will probably find a wheel/tire set in the aftermarket. Does anyone think the (Fujimi) Yokohama Advan tires will the kit-Fuchs wheels? Probably a dumb question. Thanks.
  10. If I can't the tires I need maybe I'll have to go to the 'after market' for a set of wheels and tires. This kit has the Fuchs wheels. 'Little Help'? Any suggestions? Thanks
  11. Hi. I am looking to acquire a kit of one of the Bugatti Royale kits out there. I guess Italeri has just reissued one. And if memory serves, Lindberg had one also. Any comments? Thanks
  12. I priced 'The Treatment' model car wax, and it is quite high. Are there alternatives that modelers use to 'The Treatment'? Thanks
  13. I am shortening a late-model Corvette chassis to put under a 1/24 '53 Corvette. Well I botched the process of altering the length of a C2 chassis, so now I need another one! Thank you.
  14. I'm just about finished with this model, but then I realized the kit came with no 'glass'! (At least my kit didn't). PM me please. Maybe I'll have to go on ebay. Thanks
  15. Thanks 'Force'. I picked up these 2 carbs at 'Model Builder's Warehouse'.
  16. I don't know what brand-name carbs came on this Ford engine. My resin 427 SOHC 'Cammer' engine is 1/25 scale. I think the carbs should be about 9mm or less in the greatest dimension. Thank you.
  17. I can't seem to get any response from them. Maybe they are v., v. busy, as they sure seem to have alot of good 'stuff'!
  18. Thanks E.A. I printed out about a dozen of the diagrams.
  19. Yes, I have decals 18a, 4 of them. PM me your mailing address.
  20. Building up a '64 Wedge but I am lacking the valve covers; they look close. Thanks
  21. Thanks GTX6970. That would be great. I will PM you my mailing address.
