This is what I do for Fording in the winter. Anyone care to post on scale cars,come on in! We can talk about availability,assembly techniques or values.

We can also discuss other forms of memorabilia too!

Mike,
I'm all over that man! I've got quite a collection of die cast cars and models that I've built. I have no idea what value they have other than I know I like them. My two latest are the Revelle(?) combo die-cast models from the movie Bullit. Thr bodies come as die-cast metal and the rest of it needs to be assembled. Obviously I built the Stang first, then the Charger. I'll look forward to seeing where this takes us.

Cool forum, I like models, just bought 6 kits at a model show a couple of months ago, and gave my daughter a Mystery Machine van (Scooby Doo) for Christmas, a little father/daughter project for the next rainy day.

Like your Bullitt but where's the overspray you were asking about??? Used to make 1/25's until some a*****e walked into the shelved display in the dark. Down they came resulting in a lot of "totals" and no Insurance! LOL! I still have an Unbuilt Monagram 1/24 49 Merc kit. 1st issue. Hope I don't get the urge to start modeling again! I'll be 'lurking' through!! LOL

Ok Mike now I have to and take the Bullit apart to detail it like yours.I neglected the Red Oxide. Damn I hate when that happens. I have also recently finished a 70 Boss 302. I've done a 65 GT 350H. A 70 Boss 429, I have a yellow 68 Shelby GT500KR 1/24th scale sitting on top of one of my monitors at work. The other monitor has a 1/24th scale 65 burgandy convertible with rocker molding and a manual tranny. God Bless my wife because she's always saying to me that if I'm not working on the real one in the garage, I'm building one in the basement. I get away with it cuz I work and she's a homemaker. I need one thing though.....MORE SHELVES

TonyC,
I can agree with the "I need more shelves" statement. I'm running out of room for die casts, models, and other Mustang related memorbilia. I do have a lot of fun on E-Bay searching for Mustang related items. Bad habit, but all so much fun. I do have the die cast Bullit Mustang and Black Charger. But I don't think I will put them together. I like them just the way they are.
Any one else collect Mustang tin signs, puzzles, christmas ornaments, books etc..???
Just curious to see if we are the only ones.

I tried to spray some on,but it ended up all over the floorboards,and the color didn't quite match up. So I redid it in primer. Oh well.

I do collect the tin signs and posters also. I plan to turn the garage into a shrine for everything Ford!

I am looking for a 1/25 scale auto transport. I plan to put a display case in the garage,for the rig and a full load of hot Fords.

Use to be a fanatical scale modeler. Then the basement was converted into the recording studio, and I lost my workspace. Still have my collection...about 4 dozen models, mostly Mustangs of course!

Mike,
Did you ever consider using a Tonka Transporter?? I'm not sure of the scale, but it is a possibility. Several have been at the auctions lately and sell cheaply. Just a thought.
We do have several poster in the house. One by Lucinda Lewis of a '66 coupe at an old style gas station. It's real nice. Several others showing the various generations of Mustangs. One of our best finds was a promotional tapestry from Ford for the '81 Mustang. It has a '64 1/2 Coupe,
'68 Fastback, '70 Boss 302, '72 Mustang and an '81 Mustang. Had it stretched and framed.
Came out look real !

Sam,
When you and Peg come down for our March show, you will get the short tour of the Mustang room and Mustang automobilia.

I have seen them,but I think it might look hokey. The cars look authentic,so I want the truck the same. Maybe I could use just the trailer? Hmmm...

Mike,
It's just a thought. Terri and I will keep an eye out for a car hauler at the auctions. We go to several.

I used to do alot of models.I really like to custom them,rather then stock.I know that suprises alot of you.
I have chopped tops and lowered most of them.I dont have but one or two any more.I really like the hotwheels size cars.I have about 200 of them in cases from when I was a boy until now.I still look for the different ones when ever I go by them.

AMT made a 1/25 semi trailer back in the 70's and re-released it last year. It shows up on eBay quite often. Search for "AMT trailer". There are also some late model Ford tractors and if you have the bucks AMT made a C-900 tractor/trailer set (US Mail) in the 70's. I've seen a few of these lately on eBay.

This auction ended 1/6/02. BTW the AMT trailer model is called "Haulaway Trailer"

There is also a Franklin (or Danbury) Mint car hauler with a 1951 White tractor. It's expensive, but very accurate.

I won a Bullitt model at a car show. I'm keeping that one in the box. We have two of the 35th anniversary Mustang die-casts and one of the Ford convertable - you know, that $70 one. I had a rough time getting Arcadian blue die-casts but I did finally get one in each body style. The coupe was the last one I got and it sits on my '66's air cleaner at shows. The fastback and convertable sit either in the trunk or the back window. We have other assorted die-casts - whatever we like, we buy. Shelf space - what's that? Don't have enough here either

I just saw the transporter trailer at Hobbytown here in Atlanta on Monday, $32, I'd be glad to pick one up for you if the ebay thing doesen't work out, just let me know, they had 3 of them in stock.

Any excuse to go to Hobbytown and look around.
KK, they had a 1/18 Cougar 1967 in diecast, dark green, have you got one already?
