    If you have an "Old Navy" in your area, they have the book "Hotrods & Customs" on sale for five bucks and it has some great pix of old model kits in it. I can take pix of the pix if you want. My scanner needs a rebuild otherwise I would scan them for you.

    Here are a couple of models, some built recently, some in the heyday of the model era. Also one unbuilt motorcycle kit in the box.

    Here is a pic of an old rod that sits on my mantle.
    I think i built when i was 20 so that was 8 years ago.
    It still hasnt fallen apart but its super dusty.
    I dont remeber if it was the reissue or original because i had both
    at the time.
    I need to start modeling again.

    Who knows whatever happened to all the models I had when I was a kid, I must have given them away (along with the big box of "extra parts"). I've been looking for one peticular model that I had. As I remember it was a '60(?) Galaxie with gull-wing windows (not doors, just windows). Does anyone remember this car? I would love to find one, it was my favoite.

    I've been working on the Roth Super Fink model. A Fink on a motorized skateboard with a Superman cape. I guess they're reissuing 'em. He's got metalflake purple skin. I just need to get some time to finish it. Haven't built any others in years.

    I found this a few years back at a local antique shop. Does anyone recognize it from a kit? It looks to be hand made, has wooden body, frame rails and flathead. Interior has red upholstery, shifter,gauges and pedals. One reason I think it is homemade is that the front liscence plate is a 47 from California and the back is a 49. Would be kinda neat to know if it might have been modeled after someones rod. It's starting to show some age but I think it was well worth the 18 bucks I paid. Pool

  17. I must have gotten this for a deal off evilbay, and it came with the Big n Littles pack in the box. Not sure what the psychedelic box art was for...
