  • Nice old 1/24 kits scored

    My brother in law called the other day and told me about a little flea market in town with some kits. After a few photos, I scored a few!

    Beautiful, Harry.
    That Waltrip/Bonnet kit usually brings a good price at the model car shows, even the decals sell for as much or more than the aftermarket stuff. The accessories contained in the STOCK CAR+ series kits are sometimes worth the price paid for the kit itself. I package and sell that stuff at the model car shows when I have it available. If memory serves, those big Lumina kits are molded in some racy colors that can just be left that way and then decorated as you please. Way to snag the goods!
    Enjoy -- Ernie :>)

      Aah, a good info fill in for me.

      Picked up these four built 1/24 kits at last spring's local car model show n' swap to slot car convert.

      The body's were molded in color and decaled so that would save a lot of modeling effort. The $5 for all four price made it an irresistable buy.

      Thanks for the posting.

        Finding these older kits built like that is truly solid gold. I think I have built that Wilson/Hillin Buick twice..lol

          I went to a plastic modelers’ show in Kirkwood, Mo. last Sunday. Very interesting. Lots of dealers and nice contest cars.
          One dealer had a lot of NASCAR kits for $5 and $6. I picked up a Revell tuner Datsun 510 (the BRE versions are sky high these days) and a Ford Zakspeed Mustang (same style as Sideways 1/32) SIB; both cars for $20.
          Jimmy Flintstone was there with his resin cars. Lots of potential there for the circle track guys.
          They do two shows a year. Next one sometime in May.
          Judging by the amount of stuff leaving with attendees, folks are stocking up for a cold winter.

            Nice scores, sounds like a show that I would like to work with my vendor set up.
            Just a bit too far of a ride for me from Long Island, NY!
            Enjoy! -- Ernie :>)

              Here's a tip on that short BUICK body, it handles much better that almost all of the other 1/24 scale NASCAR kit bodies. Of course, those late '80s early '90s amt1/25 scale NASCAR stockers are in a class of their own. They are visibly smaller. We use them as late models on the short oval club track, with the body determining the maximum track width front and rear.
              OK, maybe the cat's outta the bag now on the BUICK - have at it guys! -- Ernie :>)

                  Hmmm, I've got a Waltrip Buick I built as a static model several years ago out in the garage collecting dust. I think I need to investigate turning it into a slot car.
