Harking back to page 2 of this thread, I posted up a 59 Impala and a 56 Nomad. I picked these 2 up today to add to the 50's stash:

Sean: I'm contemplating a two tone paint job, for the 1950 Olds. Cream(Ish) with a black top.

Not sure what to do with the 66 model, other than am wheels.

Was at a hobby fair saturday. 3 armor kits and these two auto kits. The dealer also had Revell's '72 Olds pace car, but at 65us$ it was way to expensive.

My mother in law never gives me a birthday present. She give me money to buy it myself, so that's what I did.
Revell samba VW bus


Fujimi De Tomaso Pantera. Always loved that car. When I was a kid and played with automobile cards, this was one of my favorits.


And a 1/24 scale figure, from Maim.

Hey Mike,

The fan is about as loud as your bathroom fan, the only major drawback to it. The LED's are awesome. I painted my '57 Bel-air body last night, and boy do I suck at airbrushing.

The LED'S shows every over/under spray on the body.

Other than the fan noise, I'm very pleased with it.

See ya in the funnies........

Hi Brian,
Cool! I've been using the unlighted version for over three years and have been very happy with it! Kinda' nice that they've added the LEDs! 🔆

Cheers!🍺

You sure like Team Lotus! My very first F1 car was the Tamiya 1/12 Team Lotus Type 78. Loved that car. Unfortunately it didn't survive the cat.

Thanks for the info and picture Jim, that is one interesting looking cab design. Looking forward to your build.

Jesper, I'm a Lotus fan through and through just a shame they are no longer in F1. I'm planing to pick up the Tamiya/Fujimi/Hasegawa Lotus F1 cars and the Ebbro type 49 high wing once it comes out.

James: Love those American LaFrance firetrucks. Looking forward to seeing them build, the century series in particular.

Luciano: The 1970 Lotus is one of my favorit F1's.

Luciano,

This is Engine 51 from the TV show "Emergency!" which ran from 1972 to 1977:


It's a 1973 closed-cab Ward-LaFrance P80 Ambassador triple-combination pumper. LACoFD (Los Angeles County Fire Department) was purchasing numerous P80s at the time, and Ward-LaFrance donated a P80 unit to Universal Studios specifically for use in the show.

Looks interesting Jim, don't know anything about those trucks but looking forward to seeing what you do.

Any way my 'Black Friday' purchase arrived, along the same line as my last purchase. Lotus 72C Gold Leaf, colour matched paints, 2 pack clearcoat and not in the photo some micro filler pre-thinned white primer.
The little packet contains pre-shaped air funnel mesh both the long type and eight individual ones.

The plan is to make the Ward-LaFrance Engine 51 from "Emergency!" You probably saw that coming. And to put the American-LaFrance Century cab onto the AMT LadderChief kit to update that from a 1000-Series cab. We'll see what happens.
