The seller had put an alternative set in, wide BBS wheels with slick tyres which shouldn't work, but....


Now I'm thinking perhaps it might?!

Maybe go for a lowered, Montero Evo look. Sort of a street fighter kind of thing?

This all came in today. I had a kit that had everything in it except for the body. I tried locating a body here and on numerous forums to no avail. So all this cost me less than what I could buy just a body on eBay for. Enough to build2 kits and have spare parts.

Did you by a kit for a body?   Good looking Monte Carlo promo!

Went to the lhs to get some primer for an upcoming build, browsed the evergreen racks and got some resupplies, found these Meng bolts and those will save a heck of a lot of scratch building. 


Were those at Hobby Wholesale? Great Hobbies?

Good to know somewhere local is starting to carry some accessories like this.

Patience grasshopper...... manifested this decal sheet, which includes some small parts.  I knew this existed, saw a post on Fakebook but didn't want a resin hood and the overseas postage.  I won a Fakebook group build, the prize was a gift certificate with Spot Model, so the cost was a screaming deal.  Thought I hated decals, and always envious of those who can do a carbon-fiber job well.  This is the Andy Warhol BMW "art car".


Okay, now I'm done buying stuff. 🤥

The other day I grabbed this. Seller said for parts, don't know if complete (It is, with instructions).

There was also a complete Woodstock Woody mostly on sprue in the same box and a few bits from a third kit. This kit was just missing instructions. 

And...a 1968 version MPC Fire Truck, mint in a very nice box. This one does not have "Chuck Miller's" credit on the front of the box.

Can you tell I'm on a C-cab kick? :)
