:(  :(  :(   I just posted a long response and description of my latest purchase, but it all disappeared.  Something about the site being offline.  BS.  I have been moving all throuigh the site for an hour.  Please advise, becasue I'm not going to waste all that rtime again if this page isn't working.  :(

Lindberg 32 Pickup Rod, Off ebay UK 2 for £11.50. One built/unpainted and one unbuilt in bags.

I'm going to try and paint the built one, whilst thinking how to further customise the other.

I stumbled across a garage sale in the neighborhood that had about 30 models. Models in the wrapper were $10 and without wrappers were $5.  So I picked up 5 kits that were all unwrapped and all were complete and unbuilt. A 56 Chevy Del Ray (I have built it before and its a great kit), 69 Dodge Charger Daytona, 66 Ford Galaxie, 72 Chevy Chevelle and a Daisy Jeep! So combined with 5 purchases at the last contest, that ranged between $10 and $15, I now have 10 models for less than $100. I think I spent about $85 total. I should be good for the rest of the year if I only build these kits! Thanks for looking! Cool

If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR

Next on the bench:  Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.

I've been on holiday to Portugal and while away Fathers Day has come and gone. Our youngest son who is still in the UK has dropped off....

So it looks that I might be busy on this build soon!

As I rather like the look of the CJ7 Jeep in the latest SAE Mag, I've been lucky to find one on ebay UK and at a very good price, to be delivered tomorrow...

A Monogram variety to build into this the SAE build up...

Hey Pat - I've got the Mercedes as well.  Looks like a nice kit, though little disappointed that it's a curbside.  And looks like there's lots to add to the body after paint!  Group build?  lol

Thanks,

John

Yes John both the standard road going and the racecar kits are curbside. Perhaps Mercedes didn't like people knowing any info on the engines, gearboxes and drivetrains!

I'm on Pinterest and saw this the other day...

A bit radical with the kit!
