Re: [FWDLK] When did this Happen?



There are all kinds of web sites out there for models and Amazon has provided me with many models. Very time consuming, but interesting, and I enjoy it. It sure does add up fast! In the past year or so I've bought mainly 1/25th scale models of an 06 Dodge Magnum, 58 Thunderbird, 53 Hudson Hornet, 75 Gremlin and a 77 Pacer, 61 Pontiac, 57 Ford two door wagon, 80 Dodge Ramcharger, 65 Comet, Jaguar XKE, Porsche 928, Citroen 2CV, 70 AMX, and others. Kits are out there, too, called Snap Tite, which don't require glue. I have a 63 Corvette kit which may come in handy for when I'm older. I've come across quite a few die cast cars that have been interesting to me because I haven't seen plastic versions of most. And there are places like Autohaus that have some really different, but challenging, models like a 57 Plymouth Savoy four door sedan. And swap meets for kits and promotional models and such. It's very easy to blow a pension check or two.Dan COcean Shores, WA

It's been so long since I've looked at models, what are they
 making them of? Not material, but like trucks or cars?

 Yeah found this out a few years back.  We have a hobbytown USA not
 far from my home with a good selection and all the glue you could
 need.  They've got a good website too:
https://www.hobbytown.com/store-locations
That link should tell you if you have a store
 near you.Method of last resort is Amazon.  They sell it
 all.Finally this is the BEST online model place
 I've ever found.If they don't got it, you don't need
 it....lol.

Some of my fondest memories growing up was
 building airplane models during the Vietnam era.  F105 was
 the first one I ever built.  At 5 years old!
2 inches of snow on the car at 6am.  Gone by
 8am.  Spring?  My tulips don't know it......
Enjoy!

Tried PVC glue

We have a toy store in my small town  of about

 order items. They have glue for sale, but I recall
 glue being restricted for adult purchase only for
 many years now. And prices for both have gone up a
 mite since the 1950s.Dan COcean Shores, WA----- Original Message -----

 section with models. Also look up a local

 models. Nick(NJ) We have your snow
 right now. 4 to 7 inches supposed to come

 Super Wal-Mart to pick up a model car for my
 grandson, who just turned ten, as I thought it
 would be a good way to turn hm onto the Mopar
 car culture that grandpa has always enjoyed. 
 Building model cars/ tanks/ airplanes/ etc was
 a part of my youth and a good way to find how
 things go together.Wal-Mart no longer
 caries models.  said they did away with them
 because "kids sniffed the glue".  Makes about
 as much sense as doing away with guns because
 someone with mental issues uses them
 inappropriately.  Treat the problem by doing
 away with a related ancillary item...  Where
 are the parents?Regardless, I found
 this to be a great surprise, and now I am
 going on a search for Mopar models.  Actually
 have a couple, but wanted the "easy" starter
 kits, and didn't plan on going on-line to find
 them.  Guess another sign that I am indeed a
 dinosaur...PS:  Just got
 another inch+ of snow tonight.  Will it never
 end?????  Where is the "global warming" I was
 promised???Larry (Akron)*************************************************************To unsubscribe or set your
