    Man that sucks. I hate how late sencod gens are so under rated. No love is shown from these toy companys, oh well. That racer one looks pretty nice. I think ive seen a nascar one a while back too.

    I decided recently to get back into model building, only to discover there is NOTHING out there these days. I went to 5 different model stores, and not one of them had a 2nd gen period. Tons of first gens, tons of 4th gens, but no 2nd gens. Do the model company even make the plastic models anymore? I was talking to the owner of one of the shops, and he pretty much told me that the companies (revel...) are putting out the same things for years. Old GTO's, a 32 ford, and a pickup or two. The last time I built a model, there was a selection of hundreds. Now I get a selection of about 25. What's the deal? Does anyone know of a place to buy them? I checked EBAY, but I don't like the looks of those models. I guess I should stick with building planes. At least they still make them.

    I see you are in Jersey.There are quite a few model/diecast shows in the area.I see the late second gen's in 1/25 scale plastic going for $10-$30.There aren't any currently produced that I know of so you just have to find an older unbuilt.

    Hey Maro,

    Go to: http://www.bhh@houseofhobbies.com

    The owner's name is Glen. Tell him that
    "Ye Olde Modelmaker" sent you. Email him
    with what you're looking for, and if
    it's available, Glen will know.
    Very nice person to deal with, too.

    Hope this info helps,

    -CaptainLC-
