Any bidders for 2015?
If you came to a meeting you would know these things LOL!!!
Any way here it is, NEW location
I just picked up the Rob Walker Team Lotus Type 72C 1970 The decals seem sort of tame ,lame Ect.... I was looking for the sponser decals. Any leads would be of great help. Also I would like to wire up the engine. I would think I could use old Tamiya F1 car to guide me there. I anyone can point me in the right direction that would help very much. Thank you.
Mike at Indycals can help you
I also think he will be at the Nats this year.

- Chapparal 2E
- Cobra Daytona
Monogram did an Esprit many years ago
I do not know if it has been posted.
Bill Lastovich of Revell/Monogram passed away Thursday. Bill was usually the person manning the Revell table at the nationals and was always happy to see that we made it from St. Louis for the ihobby show in Chicago.
I did not know Bill well but he was always pleasent to talk to and always wanted to know what we would like to have come out of the model companies.
I will miss seing him at the Nationals and the ihobby show
a litle more about Bill's passing

Looking for some car decals, came across this. The guy does excellant IndyCar decals.
What no replies? Surely someone must know what has happened to both these organisations!
Polar Lights/Round 2 just announced that not only are they going to due the 1960's Batmobile in 1/32 scale as previosly announced but now are going to due it in 1/24 as a snap kit and also a Glue kit.

Is there a PICTURE of her car?... Just curious.
Here is a picture of the diecast entered at Indy.
As I do not know how to post a pic, this is taken from the Roscoe Turner website.
At the Indy Show yesterday I guy entered her Diecast Car with Autographed Pic....Nice display. Saw Terry Bushmann and Mike George....they were headed to the Speedway!!!
Yes I was.
I think the person mentioned who does some of the resin indy stuff is Bill Jorgensen. I think he only sells by ebay.
Also from Indy is Lance Sellers who does some nice resin Indy cars. A person entered two of Lance's kits this weekend at the Indy show. The McLaren/Peter Revson car and the Sunoco Car. Both very nice. His website is www.lsresincars.com/
Excellent work. I mostly do aircraft but this weekend I pulled a kit off the stack which is the MPM? Ohio George Montgomery "Multi Maverick drag racer. I was all over the internet looking for references and I`m not sure this car ever existed. Even George Montgomerys website does not mention it. Its looks like you have an interest in these type of cars. Any ideas?
Hot Rod Magazine had an article about the car, January 1971 issue. I have the magazine and will scan it for you when I find it. It will probably be after the 1st til I can look for it. I do not believe it was ever raced. as I have not seen any race photos of it. Later in the year he raced the previous years Mustang, but had gone to turbos instead of the blower. If I remember correctly.
Let me know if you want a scan of the article.
