Got me this little gem off the evil bay with a view to restoring it.

Having it in front of me now, I have second thoughts though.

It is neatly done and has the best brush paint job I have ever seen.

It has Charm...i would just leave it the way it is...That is really cool

Cheers...Don aka XJ6 B)

I agree, it does have charm. But the only other 60 DeSoto I have is a mint kit. Then again, the heck with it.

I'll leave this one as is and build the minter.

Do a Google image search for 'KDF Mangler' and you'll get an idea of what's in store for it. ;)

.......OMG, Chuck! "Strength through joy". Is that 2-4bbls on a Corvair motor? I can't wait to see this built.

I got this today but Since I have an unbuild one coming in the mail I've decided to sell it on ebay cause I can't do anything with it. CURSE THOSE IMPULSE BUYS!

Found a few neat older kits at a local kit swap meet today....a Johan '70 Cutlass (already have 4 of 'em, but have ideas for another), a Testors/IMC GT-40, the MPC '69 Firebird 'White Lightning' (the reissue from around '80 w/ the t-tops--liked that one as a kid but never had one), and an AMT '88 Kmart Lola Indy Car.

I like that DeSoto kit as I've got a couple on the way and should arrive early next week.

I didn't get anything today but I did sell 5 kits and 1 resin body as I'm thinning out the heard some.

From todays swap meet, was not as good as the last one, I kind of forced myself to buy these. I was not trying to get two Hummer kits, I bought the California wheels one first, then I found the second one that includes stock wheels, and I want to make a Police Vehicle out of one, so the stock wheel one is perfect, so I have to get that one too . Both from the same seller, if I would have looked harder the first time :huh:

My new project, picked up on ebay for 24.00, completely unpainted, and parts just falling right off. Been looking for one of these for a while.

That's practically stolen. Looks to be all there, too.

I agree, all seems to be there except one rear wheel back and one half of one chrome exhaust header. I was actually waiting on another of the same guys auctions to end, and looked at his other items, it had only been listed for 7 minutes. Had to look at pictures twice to make sure I wasn;t seeing things,lol. I've been outbid on a few that went for well over 100.00. Heck, even the box, instructions, and unused decal sheet are almost perfect(except fro the yellowing on the decal sheet).
