  1. Not sure about Mr Peabody but he was the voice of Underdog.
  2. Nice one Michelle. The conversion parts look great.
  3. After watching hpiguys build on YouTube I ordered one of these kits and it arrived yesterday. The chassis and suspension detail are outstanding IMO. I remember seeing these in stores back when they were first released and didn't pay much notice after building some of the MPC Pro stock kits. I expected this kit to be just as inaccurate at the time and I built drag racing subjects mostly anyway. Now that I see what is in the box I can't wait to get started on it. This one is going to be fun!
  4. You will really like the 1/16 MPC kit. I built one when I was a teenager and it is an excellent kit. The only downside I recall was warped tires.
  5. Growing up in Jacksonville FL my favorite place for buying models was a chain of local discount stores called Pic N Save. They always had a huge selection of kits of all kinds. They were the first place I ever saw Heller and Matchbox kits for sale. The K Mart on Lem Turner Rd was my second choice for kit buying. Never went to a real hobby shop until i was grown and that was the Hobby World stores on 103rd street and on Blanding Blvd.
  6. Looks great! Nice to see one that isn't yellow or white.

I know this would require some major reworking of the rear but....just saying.
  8. I think they were molded short to clear the rear valence. You may want to test fit before you lengthen the springs.
  9. I'm with you Bill. A P1800 would be great.
  10. The first model car I built was the AMT Scale Stars 1/32 63 Corvette. Got it for my fifth birthday with a promise from Mom that if I did a good job on this one a bigger one would be next. My first 1/25 car kit was a strange one and am not making this up as I remember it very clearly. It was a Palmer kit that actually had an engine and a reasonably accurate body! It was an Oldsmobile of maybe 60-61 vintage. My dad brought it home from work late one night on my birthday and I was disappointed when i saw the box (it wasn't an AMT kit like my uncle had recommended) but was surprised when I o
