  1. 1969 Ford Torino Cobra Kit #6893 1990 Release Date This kit is a 3 in 1 affair: stock, custom, and NASCAR. There are 7 sprues molded in light gray styrene, 1 chrome sprue, 1 clear sprue, 1 small red transparent sprue, body, interior tub, and floorpan. In a review by Bluesman Mark on the 69 Torino Cobra Modified Stocker, he included a small history where he stated that the 69 MS was retooled back to near annual kit configuration in the early 90's. The body in this kit concurs with his review by reveiling the marks inside the wheelwells where they were once radiused. The Body: The bod
  2. Before you do that, can you get CA Debonder? If so, try a small amount on the smear and see if it comes loose. I do not know if it would hurt the paint or not, but it could be a chance to avoid sanding and repainting the door. Just an idea.
  3. Good information here. Where did the '40 sedan delivery originate? Did it come from the coupe or was it its own entity? Thanks
  4. http://www.johanmodels.com/ okey@johanmodels.com I got the Pontiac, Belvedere, and the Cutlass off of the web site. It appears that the colors of the kits Okey sells at the shows are different than those offered through his site. I've also ordered the promo version of the 59 Rambler. I'm still waiting on it, but he said it would take some time. Too bad I'm never near any show where he attends.
  5. Hey guys, After reading this thread, i went out the Big Lots near me. At this store, they had the Escalades, 300Cs, 76 Caprices, 69 Baracudas, 71 Mustangs, International Scouts, 61 Rancheros, Camaro street rods, GMC trucks, and Silhouettes. I grabbed a Shilouette, 76 Caprice, and a Mustang.
  6. I agree with the condition of the 40 Ford. I built an earlier release of the Ford over 10 years ago, and it did not have the issues that this one has. I got the body of this Ford nearly cleanned up now, but along with the flash, it also had pin marks on the outside of the body.
  7. The nearest Walmart is in California, MD. They are currently becoming a Super Walmart, and clearanced most of their kits this spring. They moved their tow section this past week, but I did not see a trace of the remaining models or supplies.
  8. This is the current release of Lindberg's 49 Ford which I picked up at my local hobby shop. This kit is in 1/32 scale. This may not be favorable with those who prefer 1/24 and 1/25 scale kits. However, it is another option for those who are into old Fords. The Kit: This kit comes with 4 sprues: 3 in white plastic, and one in clear. There are no chrome-plated parts included. Therefore, the parts that are suppose to chrome will need to sprayed with Alclad chrome or covered with BMF. The wheel/tire assemblies come in two halves. Assembled, they appear too rounded, but no
  9. Looking good there. Which AMT chassis did you use for the Superbird?
  10. This review is for the current issue of the 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente kit. It is a special run AMT repop that is being distributed through Model King. I picked up this example from Hobby Heaven. Kit: This is a curbside kit with no engine, molded in hood, and few parts. The provided parts only make a stock version. The chrome parts sprue is the only real sprue in the kit. All of the details underneath are molded in, including a representation of an engine. The body is bagged separately while the chrome was in another. A third bag contains the floor pa
  11. This is the current release of the AMT 1937 Chevrolet Coupe which is being distributed through Stevens International. I found my example at my LHS, and was drawn in by the nostalgic box art. I'll give some in-box information on the kit. Kit The kit consists of 10 sprues (1 clear, 2 Chrome, and 7 white plastic) which are packed among 7 bags. Another bag contains 2 sets of tires, a metal axle, and transparent red piece. The glass is packed separately in a bubble wrap pouch. The clear sprue contains headlights, and a clear custom hood. The parts are packed, and one will need a lot of lu
  12. Not too long ago, I was searching the internet for information on jo-han model kits. I came across Johan Models fairly new web site. Here's the link: http://www.johanmodels.com/ There is not much there now, but they retooled the Turbine and Rambler Wagon. Also, there are some NOS promos there with resin parts to upgrade them. I bought and now waiting on the 56 Plymouth Belvedere in Briar Rose. The Plymouth promo is NOS while the mold is being converted to kit form.
