Although going against my recent selling spree of all car kits of 1/24 & 1/25 due to lack of space my youngest son has always wanted a 1:1 of these in this colour to carry his mountain bike a gear around in. He does cross country on his bike, wereas the eldest son does more downhill.

He was looking for a decent reasonaly priced second-hand one, but he bought a BMW 3 series touring wagon in the same colour!

Picked up a Revell wrecker kit. I had wanted the regular glue type kit, but saw this Snaptite at an already decent price and a "Make an offer" option. Got it with my first offer so got a really good price on it. It'll make another great option as one of the first kits I build.

I finally ran across a “Miss Deal” kit on eBay for considerably less than usually found there. Even though “Miss Deal” never existed as a 1:1 drag car, the kit really intrigues me. I figure I’ll build it close to box stock. It should go well with the rest of the gassers, F/X cars, and early funny cars I’ll have in my collection.

Got another Studebaker on eBay. It's missing the plugs to connect body to chassis and also the red taillight lenses, but that shouldn’t be a problem. By the time I get around to building this one I hope to have the skills to construct something to solve each of those small obstacles

 

 

Forgot that Jo-Han did snap kits. Good score.

I'm running out of space to display by builds so selling all 1/24 & 1/25 kits and all aircraft kits as well. So buying 1/32 and 1/43 scales. Got this yesterday .....

Just found these on the back of one shelf and built them, interesting doing such small decals.....

All of these 1/43!

So now looking for much smaller scales to build!

Don't rush yourself Steve.

 

Half the fun is just reading, researching, talking with people & looking at other peoples stuff.

I enjoy the hobby much more now since I started frequenting the forums.

Just now read this. Somehow missed it the last couple of times I read this thread. You're 100% correct, Steve. I'll flat out state that I'm having a pretty good time reading mag articles, forum threads, online tutorials, and researching for future builds. I got the '69 Dart GTS in the mail yesterday and found a great article online that had several really great photos of the interior, exterior, and engine. The car in the article was just immaculate. It was white with red guts and red striping. If I had been spending time building I might have missed this article. I'm going to move this GTS build way up in the order I'll build because of the great photos I now have, and my build will be a replica of the 1:1 car I found. Beautuful car! I'm not on my laptop right now, or I'd post a photo of it.

Went to a model show with vendors yesterday and bought these 5 models for an average of $20 each. No sales tax; no shipping charges! I have only built one Moebius kit, the Hornet, and wanted to try a few more. The two Challengers (I owned a 1:1 70 Challenger once and now have a 2015) are two of my favorites that I have build a couple of times and they are getting hard to find. So now I have plenty of Mopar challenges for the next few months! 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.

JohnZ,

Yeah, I’d say I already have more kits than I could possibly build in the next ten years or so. I probably should stop buying, but there are certain kits I see that I’d really like to have in my collection of completed builds. Logic tells me that they would be a whole lot less expensive to buy now than down the road a few years. I don’t think anything is going to be cheaper in 5 years than today. I’m not sure of the exact number of kits in my stash right now, but I do know it’s well over 70, and might even be over 80 now.

Yes, and no, on starting the Challenger. I have all the parts washed and have been removing mold lines and other imperfections from all the parts. I’m really tinkering around with different ways to do several things I’ll need to do to complete my builds. I have a partial loss of feeling in my right hand/arm that have caused me to learn new ways to do things. I’m right handed so I’m re-learning how to do a lot of things. I’m also spending a lot of my leisure time reading articles online and in printed magazines. There is a TON of excellent info right here in this forum, on the SA site, and in SA magazine. I’ve been buying some back issues as well. The fact is that I need to just jump into the Challenger build, but I’ve been dragging my feet. As soon as I finally decide to get going I’ll start posting some photos.

Also, love your signature line. My favorite was when Kilmer said, “I’m you Huckleberry”. He pretty much stole that movie from Russell. He was fantastic in his role.

 

Don't rush yourself Steve.

I enjoy the hobby much more now since I started frequenting the forums.

Ollies in Hazleton PA had some different kits in today. I saw some ships, a kit of two ironclad ships and an artillery cassion with horses from the civil war. Also a fire truck, two different Mopar drag cars from the mid 60's and a few others. I picked the two kits on top up there.

The Model T kit shows a longer frame to fit the blown V-8 that I hope will make it a good fit for an I - 6 motor. I got the Hayden Proffit 62 Bel air on E-Bay after I found out I couldn't make an accurate one out of a 62 Impala.. Maybe I can use some of the parts from the Impala to make a more detailed Bel Air.
