Somebody does read/listen to rms-ers!

A short while back there was the A/C wish list thread going and my 1st choice was repopping the Matchbox F3D after so many years. Well, I got the Email from GM and there it was! Checked their site and it is in the original art as well.

Tom, from Hobby Heaven, other auto dealers and a slew of auto poster/builders helped nudge RC2 to dust off some 'old' AMT and MPC molds. Who do A/C guys start needling for more of the good old stuff?

My only question is,when did it become Matchbox-Germany?I thought the matchbox kits on sale were just leftover stock...or is it making a comeback? And I have been looking for another Skynight woohoo!

I haven't done any serious reading for pleasure in a long time...I think the last author I got caught up in was Johnathan Irving. For some reason I read "The World Accoring to Garp" during my college days and then ended up readin g every thing he had written to that book. It was sort of funny, because all of the rest of his books gave me the impression that they were book Garp would have written...

I spend most of these days reading for information...and waiting for the movie. Though now that I've started down the road of 3D animating I may find myself doing some writing.

Yes. I highly recommend reading for pleasure. It's the main way to get away from it all here. I agree with 'e' about Laumer although I've only read one of his books.

RoG has/had some (or all ) Matchbox molds at their fingertips for a good while. I do know for certain the 1/72 F-86A, now released by Airfix, was available through RoG in Matchbox livery. There have to be other kits but better informed sources would know. Same here on the Skyknight. Now I can build one of my 2 as a VMCJ-3 Playboys bird, (thanks again to Dave Roof for the decals a long time ago).

Yeah...I'm a visual sort of guy...some of the fiction reading I've done I've really enjoyed, but not enough to develop or advance a habit.

I'm sort of the same way about sports - if I'm not actually playing, I don't really have any desire to watch.

Building models usually gets me away from it all...that, and skydiving, skiing, motorcycle riding, shooting, flying...

Gotta choose your own vices, I guess.

Forgive me for doubting the quality of your certainty, but AFAIK, Airfix only has two kinds of F-86 so far: the original F-86D, and a reboxing of the Heller F-86F. (While checking this on Hannants, I noticed the latter is discontinued, BTW. I'll better get a few more.) As for the Matchbox F-86A, other than being an A, it hasn't got much going for it, unless you really like the good old, simple Matchbox kits.

I'd love to get my hands on a Skynight, though! revell.de doesn't list it though, so my guess is those must be old boxes, not new.
