them old promos were neat, but hard to make them straight again. I had 15 of them from 48-58 from a guy that worked Ford dealership those 10 years. He sold them to me for a buck a piece and they were nice. I sold them to a guy that worked at the World Trade Center and he put them on display in a lobby along with some old comic books etc...needless to say they will never be seen again.
He's a pedantic, pontificating, pretentious bastard, a belligerent old fart, a worthless steaming pile of cow dung, figuratively speaking.
I really like this thread. OK, haven't been building any TRakable stuff lately. But, I do have a few Ebay Gluebombs from the 60's in my collection: Like this old 60 Fury. Had a Marlin grille and an old Chevy rear bumper when I bought it. Paint was almost 1/16" thick. All emblems and such was shaved.
Now being rebuilt into this Starbird-inspired custom....
Then I have this old 65 Impala "bubbletop" custom.
..an old ITC 1940 Mercury (actually, I have 2 of these)
...and, finally, someone's attemt to build an X-Sonic Clone from a Revell 1960 Corvette

Just got this 'un from eBay (and it was NOT cheap ) One of them '60 Ford pickups with the 8 foot bed that everyone seems to really dig at the moment, 1960's built, lowered and custom caps but apart from the blower not far from standard.
I've lacquered the tarp on the back to preserve that great decal
Other than a clean up, some better paint, a little body work, lakes pipes and dropping the front end slightly closer to the ground this one's staying pretty much the same, I will try to build a front engine digger rail to haul on the trailer though

krassandbernie: I'm surprised that only one or two members even noticed the new posts I made in the 'resin' section......and now crickets!

krassandbernie: You'd be getting more done than I have in the past year or two if you do build on the kitchen table! LOL!

EchoBravoSierra: I'm struggling to settle on something to build too. My "working on a model" time has been pulling a box out, digging in it, putting it back up, wash, rinse, repeat.
