I always try to think big when it comes to our hobby. I live in Iowa in the Quad Cities area which includes two cities in Iowa and two cities in Illinois. Interstate 74 runs right through the middle of the Quad Cities and there is a bridge that spans the Mississippi River. I thought a nice big banner of the site logo hanging from the bridge would be a good source of advertising for the site and for our hobby. Of course I'm being facetious but we could use some 'new blood' so the hobby will exist for future generations. Here's my concept.
One matter of course purchase. And one helluva' purchase! Two Tomy AFX cars from vastly different eras.
The packaged car is from the new line of clear Mega G cars. The superb Ford GT 40 has been retooled and Tomy have produced a gem of a car.
The other car is the extremely rare Tomy AFX S Series Ferrari 365GT #75. The S Series cars were a very exclusive Japan only boxed release. They came with the soon to be extinct AFX G Plus chassis and are very collectible today. It's a real shame Tomy dropped this design as it's a real beauty.
Well Guys, I had purchased some Dash Hot Rod bodies at a good price and so the thinking process began. After some research on the web it became clear as to what I wanted to do. The great thing about this little project is I have several options as to what to build... a street rod, a salt flats racer, and/or a dirt modified racer. Decisions, decisions... I will probably do all three eventually. Anyway the pictures pretty much tell the story
This rare AFX Porsche 917 is in need of repair. Although minor, it does detract from the integrity of the whole car so I'm putting it out there on the best way to fix this. Any ideas on products and techniques would be appreciated.
I suppose I am a few years behind in regards to this particular item but I missed out on the availability of these trucks when they first came out. I came across the entire set of release 1 at a price I couldn't refuse.
