Today the Postman brought me the Star Models 1950 Chevrolet Panel delivery:



And a 1950 Telephone Truck Box for the Revell Ford F1:


Hopefully the Chevrolet will be done as a Civil Defense truck, and the box will go on the Ford F2 4x4, but we'll see.

Bought a can of orange, for a Pantera GTS. Way to much paint for one car, so I desided to by a model specifically for the orange paint. The Miura was an easy choice.

The Mustang will be build to replicate my 1/1 Mustang. Will need a PE set and Will most likely have to buy Revell's '66 Shelby, for the hood and sidescoops.

I have had a good long fondle of the sprues and apart from a small amount of flash the detail looks good. I will be starting a thread soon with a few images and reviews, keep an eye out for it!

Very nice. Were these RHD or LHD in Australia back in the day? Are you going to make it Coral? I've heard that was a very popular color back in the 1950s.

Jim



Jim, imported Chevs were assembled as RHD at the GM plant in Woodville, South Australia.

Hi, guys!

Just added a few kits to my stash for whenever their time shall come:

Tamiya's New Beetle:


AMT's Lowboy trailer with load:


and MPC's Mack DM600:


All should be fine builds, I guess. Apparently are some problems with the AMT kit but nothing unmanageable.

Cheers!

Great buy's Damian.
The El Camino is the best looking pick-up of all times.

Harking back to page 2 of this thread, I posted up a 59 Impala and a 56 Nomad. I picked these 2 up today to add to the 50's stash:

Sean: I'm contemplating a two tone paint job, for the 1950 Olds. Cream(Ish) with a black top.

Not sure what to do with the 66 model, other than am wheels.

Was at a hobby fair saturday. 3 armor kits and these two auto kits. The dealer also had Revell's '72 Olds pace car, but at 65us$ it was way to expensive.

My mother in law never gives me a birthday present. She give me money to buy it myself, so that's what I did.
Revell samba VW bus


Fujimi De Tomaso Pantera. Always loved that car. When I was a kid and played with automobile cards, this was one of my favorits.


And a 1/24 scale figure, from Maim.
