In Search of more vehicles and other topics

Mea Culpa:

One of my blog followers pointed out that my postings could use a little proofreading.  Yes, I don’t always proof the posts.  I am usually composing while watching the tele.  My wife has been known to interrupt my train of thought as well.  I have no excuse for not being more careful.  I will try to clean up my act in future postings.

More Vehicles:

After posting on 1/4″ vehicles the other day, I received additional information that is worth sharing with you.   Dave Sather sent a few pictures to better illustrate the models mentioned and John Prizzi provided me a very useful list of vehicles made in 1/4″ scale.  The list was compiled by Rod Jensen and posted on the On3 Yahoo.

  1. Gene:

    The list you posted wasn’t compiled by the Yahoo On3 group, I created & posted this list to the group for all to use after many years of buying and researching these kits from various sources. I usually attempt to update it annually and as new kits come to market. I have persuaded? Coronado Scale Models in Phoenix to carry some of these kits so I recommend that guys try Stan & Sheldon first when they are in the market for these and other 1/48 products.

  2. Gene,
    I like your blog, it’s always interesting.
    I usually proof my messages but still often miss something. Regardless, people still understand what is written.
    So keep your stuff coming and don’t worry about the nit-pickers.


  3. A couple years ago I was interested in the cast metal vehicles that Matel produced under the “Models of Yesteryear” range – late 70’s to early 80’s I believe. Since they were produced to fit the boxes rather then a precise scale .. they (scale) varys greatly. Although I was primarly intersted in 1:48 (or close) I ended up with the entire line. IMO .. 1:46 to 1:50 is usuable.

    In any case there are 4ea 1:47, 11ea 1:48, 3ea 1:49 and 2ea 1:50

    The data was taken from –

  4. I just became aware of the Anvil Mountain Nash Quad. Anyone know if a source for them? Their website doesn’t list them. Thanks, Art
