  1. Thanks for offering, Kevin! I've accepted Tom's offer, but I'll keep you in mind, and if you ever need anything, just let me know.

    Vise grips

    I'm looking for 1/24-25 scale vise grips. I understand they are in the Revell '53 and '54 Chevys. I will happily trade for them, either parts for parts or a whole kit for kit. If you want to trade kits, I would prefer the '54 panel, but I'm not fussy. Thanks!
  3. Thanks Patrick. Yeah, it looks like the same sprue is in the '53 sedan and the '54 panel. I wonder if it is in the gasser versions of those kits. Thanks David! I thought I responded to your post a couple of days ago, but it looks like my reply never posted. The way my buddy told the story it sounded like it was a floor shift. His was also a red 4 door.
  4. It turns out I have that kit, so I checked it out. The instructions show pliers, no vise grips. That darn Murphy never sleeps. Thanks for trying!
  5. Thanks, Trevor! I found the kits you're talking about. Now I just have to buy or trade for one. I like the idea of getting a whole kit to build, plus having the vise grips. (Like I need another kit to build.😀)
  6. Thanks, Dave! Those will work fine, plus I get all those other goodies.
  7. Are there any 1/24-25 vise grips available? I looked in the "Geegaws" thread and saw pliers, but not vise grips. I'm building a '60 Valiant for a friend that had one as a teenager. He broke off the shifter and replaced it with vise grips. Also, does anyone know if those Valiants were "three on the tree", or floor shift? Thanks!

  9. LOL, so true! "Be sure to stick your * in someone's face at least once a day."
  10. That's a great pic of Linus. Rule Number One of the Cat Code of Conduct: "You are entitled to have whatever you want whenever you want it, and you must complain loudly if you don't get it."😄 Here are some more of the rules: "If an object is on a raised surface, and can be moved, it belongs on the floor." "You must randomly do something annoying, just to keep your human from getting complacent." "If you have the opportunity, you must alter your human's computer, so that it will take them an hour to figure out how to fix it." "The warmest, softest places belong
  11. Hoover thanks you for the compliment. It seems to me he has a longer than average tail.
  12. Here's Hoover, so named because he eats like a vacuum cleaner. He's resting after bingeing on Cat TV (AKA bird feeder). Another shelter mutt, he's a good cat. However, in keeping with the CCC (Cat Code of Conduct), he's required to be a PITA from time to time.
  13. Beautifully done! I'm really impressed with the paint work on the stripes.
