Monogram 1929 Ford Pick-up BLUE BEETLE (Vintage)

  • Looking for a 60's vintage model. I know the older kits may be very hard to find but my search continues. I'm still hoping Monogram will re-release this kit.

    I'm looking for the Monogram 1929 Ford Pick-up BLUE BEETLE kit. I'm not looking for this kit to hold on to it and not building it, or for later selling it for profit.

    This was a very special kit for me as I grew up in the 60's era as a boy building models. (I'm now 52) This kit for me was one of my all time favorites. It just brings back great memories of that era and building models. I would love to have this kit to rebuild again and put it on my desk to always remember some great days of the past. I think some of you can relate how something simple as a favorite model kit from your childhood can put a warm feeling in you only another life long builder can understand.

    I found the kit (the only one I have ever seen so far) on ebay but it is a built kit . I'm looking for an unbuilt kit so I can have the pleasure of building it myself. Here is the link so you can see what I'm looking for.....

    Any info on this kit welcomed......a big thank you!

    Why clutter the board?
    Lee has a good suggeston there, this looks loke the same tool as the recently issued Rat Rod by Revell
    I want to be a race car passenger: just a guy who bugs the driver. "Say man, can I turn on the radio? You should slow down. Why do we gotta keep going in circles? Can I put my feet out the window? Man, you really like Tide..." http://public.fotki.com/BigPoppa/darins_stuff-1/
  • Hey dag65....thank you for the tip also. Sorry about the two posts.....Your right as I also hate clutter.

  • The best part about the new kit is you get a whole bunch of extras or the parts box, great kit

    Nope!!!!!

    The Monogram "Blue Beetle" is a totally different kit from the Revell '29 Model A pickup kits. Other than they are both 1929 A Roadster pickups, and the fact that they both have round wheels, there is no comparison.
