  2. Hey James, I am not sure anyone is doing the Gen 1 Broncos at this time. I am assuming that this is what you are looking for as the years you stated I believe are a bit off. I think the last year for the Gen 1 Bronco is 1974?? If I recall correctly A/FX did both a Stock and a long nosed drag version of the Bronco but I have not been able to find it recently. Hopefully it will turn up again as it is a real neat subject to make a very unique build!!!
  3. Its kinda funny but someone was asking about this build just yesterday. The funny part is I told them I built it about a year ago. LOL!!! I originally posted this in 2007 and built it in 2006. My how time really flies!!!!! KT
  4. I am glad to see some new/reissued stuff come out!!! I just hope they keep the ball rolling and dig out some long forgotten molds!!!!

  6. Well I do plan to put a monster Big Block under that Cowl hood!! I have always been a Big Block guy!!! As for what I have to do.......well.....the body is done but it still needs some work on the suspension and interior. I got a bit of it done today!!! I will try to post some better pics!!! KT

  10. I did it, It took over a year but I think I am coming out of a serious model block!!! I have had an Indy Fiero project on the bench for over a year!!! Funny, it was supposed to be a "Quick Build"!!! LOL!!!! Last night I finally pushed it off to the side and re-started and older project. This is a '70 Camaro pro street that I am building from the junk box. It is an AMT body with a Revell pro stock chassis @ tub. The wheels and tires are also from the parts box. The hood is from Matt Conte @ LOOKOUT design. This is way out of my "comfort" zone as I usually do factory stocks or junkers but I am p
  11. Hey Darin, Good to hear from you!!! If you can make it out that would be great!!! I fully understand that you have become a busy man!!! We would sure love to see you at the show even if you cannot stay to do photos!! If you cannot, I may just have to suck it up and learn how to take better pics!!

  12. Have not tried PhotoBucket but I do have an Imageshack account that is totally FREE to use. I am also not "One" with my computer and I was able to get pics. on Imageshack and post them on websites like this. If PhotoBucket is not working for you its worth a try to check out www.imageshack.us The best part is the pics. do not expire like with some photo hosting sites( No red X after a certain time ) Just though I would share my good experence posting pics.

  16. It was about 1980 and I was 7ish years old when I built my first CAR model. It was a Monogram Mazda RX-7. I still have the rear half of it and some of the interior( Long story!!!) My first model was a plane I recieved as a birthday gift when I was about 5 and my Dad helped me put it together because it was a glue kit. I remember taking it outside and playing with it to the tune of about 5 minuites before I destroyed it and my Dad threw it away!!! KT
  17. Had a few guys asking again how I made the tarp on the Bonneville Diorama. So I thought I would bring this thread TTT for those who Have not seen it. KT
  18. I think I have almost every size baggie you can think of so I usually do not have a problem closing the box when I get done. I have tiny bags for the wheels and larger bags for the glass, etc. Sometime I do have to pack it a few times to get it all to fit nice though. As cheap as these baggies are to buy, there should be no reason not to do it and save your plastic from the dreaded tire melt!!! KT
  19. As few modelers as we seem to have in recent times, it saddens me to hear that we may have lost another!!! It is great that he is giving his stuff up to other modelers though!!! You hear all to often about models getting thrown away because they thought nobody would want it. I never let any plastic go to waste. I usually do not sell any of my collection but if there are cars/parts I do not want I just set it aside to use as a trade or to give up as a PIF on the HHMB.I let NO plastic hit the trash!!!!! KT
  20. Yea, Matt Conte (Lookout Design) has all but stopped selling other than E-Bay. He has had a run of bad luck that I would not wish upon anyone!!! It is a real bummer because he had alot of great stuff. If you are listening Matt, let us know how you are doing!!!! KT
  21. I thought I would put this one in early so everyone will know!!! The 11th Annual GoodGuys Colorado Nationals model car show is being held from May 30-June 1 2008 8-5 fri-sat 8-3 sun @ the Larimer county fairgrounds(The Ranch) in Lovelend Colorado. Admission is $15 adult, $12 senior, $6 kids(7-12), Free parking. To enter the Model contest is FREE with paid admission and you will recieve a pass to get back in on Sunday to retrive your model. There will be a Revell-Monogram sponsored Make-N-Take for the kids on Saturday @ noon until we run out of kits!!! Last year we actually held a second M&
  22. Mark, you Thread Hijacker!!!! LOL!!! I think it would be great to see some articles on our modeling peers famous like Ken Hamilton & Mark Gustavson or not like ME!!! What I would also love to see is the inside of some of the stuff we use to build models. I want to see the inside of the Testors factory so I know where my paint is made and how. The Exacto corp. would be neat to see how they make those razor sharp blades and who makes them. Just things like that would really interest me as well as seeing the Model corp. and how they work and whos behind it!!! Just some other random thought
  23. I am an ASE Certified Master Technician. I work at a smaller( but growing) company called Brakes Plus here in Colorado. I have been there for almost 10 years. Before that I worked at Western Auto. KT
  24. Check your local Big Lots store. I am willing to bet that they have a selection of AMT kits for $5.00 or less if they have not been all bought out yet. I would also check the clearance section at your local Hobby Lobby. About 4 months ago they clearanced out AMT kits at $1.75 each. I filled up a cart full and left out of there w/about 40 kits!!! It was a good day!!!!! KT
  25. Hey Guys, In recent times Dave Burkett (Model King) has gone above and beyond to work with AMT to get alot of models we have not seen in years back on the shelves. I think it would be neat to do an interview/writeup with Dave if he is willing so everyone out there can better understand what he is doing and how it is done from finding the old tools to producing a model kit. I think it would make a great article for MCM!!! But what do I know!!! LOL!!! Just a thought!!!! KT
