MERKUR


2)WHAT STYLE OF VEHICLE WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE MORE OF ? (ie: Converts, Vans, Motorhomes etc)

Late model PU's & SUV's


3) WHAT OTHER CASTINGS SHOULD BE RETIRED ?

Sorry, just recently jumping into JL so I don't feel I can offer a qualified answer on this point.


4) WHAT ARE SOME FAV CASTINGS WITH FUGLY
PAINT/TAMPOS ?

None, and apparently I'm not the only one. These things are plugging up the pegs in my area and they hang for months.



5) WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME "REALISTIC" 4X4'S WITH
RUBBER OFF ROAD TIRES ?

Prefer "factory" wheel/tire configuration be somewhere in the mix, but I can handle and would buy some trail setups if done realistically.


Thanks for asking.

1)WHAT MANUFACTURER HAS BEEN MOST NEGLECTED ?

I would have to agree on Chrysler and a nod to Buick and Olds.

2)WHAT STYLE OF VEHICLE WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE MORE OF ? (ie: Converts, Vans, Motorhomes etc)

Convertibles.

3) WHAT OTHER CASTINGS SHOULD BE RETIRED ?

All of the Muscle Cars R1 castings should be retired. Maybe even the Commeratives...

4) WHAT ARE SOME FAV CASTINGS WITH FUGLY PAINT/TAMPOS ?

Let's see, one of the latest is the '69 Coronet Conv. from the Coke series with all those tampos. Then again, pretty much all of the latest Coke's should be de-tampoed.

5) WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME "REALISTIC" 4X4'S WITH

No thanks. Happy with current products, although I would like to see somemore trucks.

Dually pickup trucks

PT Cruiser

Misunderstood the question at first... I have none with ugly tampos, just as I have none that are Zingers, bith should be discontinued

1)WHAT MANUFACTURER HAS BEEN MOST NEGLECTED ?

I think overall there is a nice split...other than some of the oddball manufacturers (International, Hudson.....)

2)WHAT STYLE OF VEHICLE WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE MORE OF ? (ie: Converts, Vans, Motorhomes etc)

Heavy trucks could go over well...properly scaled (to the cars) Semi's as in Car Transporters, Box trucks, Fire Engines, Rollback Wreckers.
More Station Wagons...many of the 1970's and later wagons would make really cool additions in the 1/64 scale

3) WHAT OTHER CASTINGS SHOULD BE RETIRED ?

Not a fan of the unrealistic castings but that's more of a personal choice...if it doesn't affect the creation of new product, why retire anything. Most of the cars that JL used to put out are basically gone from the lineup now anyways.

4) WHAT ARE SOME FAV CASTINGS WITH FUGLY
PAINT/TAMPOS ?

All I have to say about that is....why Tampo something with "Coke" just because?? The Coke Delivery Series was well thought out..more along that idea would be better welcomed

5) WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME "REALISTIC" 4X4'S WITH
RUBBER OFF ROAD TIRES ?

Definetely.....Jeeps, '80 models Pickups. A newly tooled large off-road tire would look great on many of the existing 4x4 castings.

Rob,
Racing Champions did that truck (I have a few versions). Doesn't RC2 own that casting? Maybe your wish will come true!

Chrysler-No stock Imperials or New Yorkers.

2)WHAT STYLE OF VEHICLE WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE MORE OF ? (ie: Converts, Vans, Motorhomes etc)
How about some full size wagons and sedans from the 70s?

3) WHAT OTHER CASTINGS SHOULD BE RETIRED ?
Can't think of any right now.

4) WHAT ARE SOME FAV CASTINGS WITH FUGLY
PAINT/TAMPOS ?
1949 Merc from the Spiderman series w/rubber tires.

5) WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME "REALISTIC" 4X4'S WITH

I prefer the more stock looking trucks myself. If you want a 4x4 truck, then customize one for yourself.
Thanks for the five! :wave:

2)WHAT STYLE OF VEHICLE WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE MORE OF ? (ie: Converts, Vans, Motorhomes etc) I'd like to see more Firebird/Camaro sets, myself, but thats not the question being asked right now, so I have to say more trucks, if they make an 89' GMC Sierra, I'll be happy.


3) WHAT OTHER CASTINGS SHOULD BE RETIRED ?
No idea.

4) WHAT ARE SOME FAV CASTINGS WITH FUGLY
PAINT/TAMPOS ? almost anything with "coke" on it.

5) WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME "REALISTIC" 4X4'S WITH

No, but I'd like to see work trucks, like the PIP's, worn out, beat up looking. :thumbsup:

Maybe Chrysler. Heck, there are more Willys castings than Chryslers. My choice though is (edit) Hudson, with 0 in the lineup. :(

2)WHAT STYLE OF VEHICLE WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE MORE OF ? (ie: Converts, Vans, Motorhomes etc)
Late '50s hardtops. Fins are good.

3) WHAT OTHER CASTINGS SHOULD BE RETIRED ?
The '56 Bel Air coupe is badly in need of replacement.

4) WHAT ARE SOME FAV CASTINGS WITH FUGLY PAINT/TAMPOS ?
Well, we could start with the new Elvis Cobra coupe . . .

5) WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME "REALISTIC" 4X4'S WITH RUBBER OFF ROAD TIRES ?
Great idea!

probably Mercury, what else is there besides the '49, Cougar & a newer Cyclone?

2)WHAT STYLE OF VEHICLE WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE MORE OF ? (ie: Converts, Vans, Motorhomes etc)
for Mercury, how about some earlier Cyclone (mid-60's GTs and the '64 AFX and Caliente convertible) and a couple of mid to late 50's and early 60's models

3) WHAT OTHER CASTINGS SHOULD BE RETIRED ?
the 66 Ford Fairlane should be redone, it's casting looks way too small, also the '49 Merc looks to small

4) WHAT ARE SOME FAV CASTINGS WITH FUGLY
PAINT/TAMPOS ? Coca Cola '68 GTO

5) WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME "REALISTIC" 4X4'S WITH
RUBBER OFF ROAD TIRES ? not sure, would have to see them
