Did anyone notice that's Normie and the Kookie car on the cover of the car craft magazine?
Doc, I sent the magazine to Norm to sign when he was carving one of the pieces for me. He also sent me a letter which I'll always keep. Thats a doodle Ed roth did for someone at a show in the back of the case.
Here is some more box art...a candy box! My wife collects candy boxes and found this one. She does not get to collect ALL the candy boxes!!
larry would you please adopt me????
I can't tell you how many of those I built in the day and later did a "crash and burn" or blew up with a firecracker.
That sound you hear is me beating my head against the wall.
I have this one from AMT.
I just recently built the '32 Tudor from the kit, although in a very different style, with lotsa different parts.....
Heres a few from E-Bay... Small scale gassers from monogram, had all them, Mod Squad Merc woodie, had that when I was a kid, and a rare wall plaque model Camaro, very rare. They did other cars and trucks like this too, see them every once in awhile on e-Gay.
I spent many an hour gluing and painting with Smokey Robinson and Patsy Klein playing on the radio. I still have a lot of "pieces". I keep saying when I'm too old to work on the real ones, I'll have these to play with. I'm pleased to report they are not needed yet.
You are looking at the germs that infected my body with this fatal disease. I love looking at them.
I learned most of the odd names for the car parts like drag link and radius rods buy reading model car assembly instructions and clipping them off of the trees.
Here are 2 of mine
and here it is "restored"
Merc. kits and more
Here are some of mine...got the Big T a few weeks ago...
Damn, that is really nice!
Some of my stuff:
More old box art from the stash:
Here's a rare one that I dont think anyone else (except Dean Milano of Revell) has.
I ended up with five of these in a strange transaction.
Time to bring this one back....
First issue Henry J...
A good friend is sorting through his newly acquired collection... this may take awhile
Just added this the a 1956 Ford hate thread. Bob
I have one of those also.
Does anybody have a pix of the AMT BLACK WIDOW T that was at the GNRS about 8 or 10 years ago with the display that looked like the actual box art?
I remember that, fairly sure it is somewhere on the HAMB. Bob
