Stopped at the Hobart, IN store today. They had one of the AMT '64 Cutlass convertibles.

So that's good.  However, since I'm waiting for the hardtop version that's scheduled to come out later this year, this probably means they'll never get that version.

Stopped by HL last night and was surprised to find MPC 1972 Chevy P/U Racer's Wedge because it was not on their website.  Picked it up for about $20.00 after the discount.  Cool deal!

Because HL discontinued their 40% off coupons, I've stopped shopping there.  Their selection of kits including cars, aircraft, armor just sucks. Less and less as time goes on.  I used to use the coupon for supplies, paint etc but since there's no discount I can buy the stuff for the same price or cheaper elsewhere. 

HL is turning into nothing but a freaking gift store, they need to change their name to Knick Knack Lobby. 

I'd have to agree with you there. I used to get just about all my modeling supplies there, particularly Tamiya putty and rattle can primers in white and gray...but they quit stocking those just before ending the weekly coupons...they switched to Mr.Hobby primer. Their automotive model kit selection is almost exclusively muscle cars and trucks. I only go there for Krylon spray paints anymore...they go on sale 30% off now and then.

I was looking on HL website the other day and saw a different kit that I haven't seen.  When I went there the next day they were all gone.

That's a snap-together kit with no engine or interior detail.  I had an original issue one, can't remember if the "glass" was tinted extremely dark or molded in black.

Thanks Mark....yeah I knew it was a snap-together kit but it was something different for my local HL and had a good price.

You can always order them online at the sale price. And they have free shipping on orders over $50.

I have seen some comment that has happened, but is that a HL policy or laziness on behalf of a warehouse worker? And I would think if they sent you the wrong item they would take it back and either refund your money or give you the correct item.

When I have gone on their website, if something shows out of stock, I don't believe you can order it.
