MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. I'll have to pick one of these up when they're out. I bought a sealed original at a swap meet a few years ago. It's so horribly warped that I never finished it.
  2. I love it! Looks like one my dad used to have. 74 with a 240/auto and the same paint (originally) One of my earliest memories was the last ride in it, and by that time the most of the truck was in gray primer.
  3. I picked up the AMT 40 Ford, 65 Bonneville, and D50 at the store in Richmond, Ky today. They had what was in the flyer plus the mail truck. They won't last long as the ebay resellers will buy most of them this weekend.
  4. It's been a couple of weeks or more since I stopped at my local Ollie's. Today I went back hoping they had some 70 Vettes or Myers Manx left. Nope. All gone. Not wanting to leave empty handed, I bought a 1/32 60 Tbird. Not sure it was worth $12.99 plus tax, but it'll be a fun change of pace hopefully.
  5. Pontiac More Pontiac MB SSK Buick Chevrolet Datsun
  6. Thanks for the help. I have some Mica red, but even after dulling i worry the metallic pigment would show. I may stop and get a can of dull red and try both.
  7. It was called Garnet Red in the 90s, correct? I'm building a Revell Caprice and I was thinking doing it red on red. What paint would be a good match for the interior, something off the shelf at either Hobby Lobby or Hobbytown? Thanks!
  8. I wouldn't have bought one. It's not really the subject matter for me. (Maybe it is for some?) Its the "classic cruiser" box art. However my wife did pick one up for me, and it turned out to be a pretty decent kit.
  9. The Ollie's in Richmond Ky had a fairly good selection. I bought the Manx, Camaro 50, and 70 Corvette. They also had the Craftsman 64 Galaxie, 23 Depot Hack, 61 Ranchero, Copperhead dragster, one damaged Ford surfin van, as well as a couple 1/32 kits.
  10. Nice looking build. It's been a while since I built mine (Z28 small block) but my hood didn't shut right either. I shaved down the hood "hinges" because I think they were hitting against the firewall. I haven't heard of this issue before so I probably didn't install the firewall correctly.
  11. I started this over 15 years ago. Maybe I'll finish it one day.
  12. My wife picked me up one of each tonight from the Ollie's in Lexington. Back when kits were all mostly the same price ranges, I would only buy what interested me. But nowadays at $13 each, vs $30-40 elsewhere, I'm just going to pick up any that I find.
  13. About 30 or so. They cost too dang much, and I have a tendency to part out 2 or 3 kits to make a single build. When I was a kid, I could only afford one a month maybe. After I got my first job, I began to stack em deep. Had about 200 at one time. Built (or cannibalized) most of them.
  14. Tamiya. It can only be built RHD. I also have the Aoshima kit, which can be built RHD or LHD, but doesn't have an engine (some versions have an engine, some don't, and hard to tell which ones sometimes) Both kits replicate 13-16 model years. 17-20 was ignored and they skipped right to 2022 for the retool.
