I've compiled the following list in case any of you are interested in duplicating your rides in 1/25 scale, plastic. As far as I know this is the complete list of Maverick/Comet models that are available. If you know of any I've missed please let me know. (email@example.com) For the record, Perry, of Perry's Resin Models (try www3.sympatico./ca/perrysresin/ was willing to sell me the grille and bumper assembly alone (ie. without buying the whole kit) from his '74 4dr. for $10 so I could have the heavier style bumpers on my model---I'm using a "Tinker's Toy" which has the later style grille but the early style bumpers). Be warned though that his grille and bumpers don't come plated. If you have any questions on chrome plating model parts or on other aspects of the hobby, feel free to contact me. I know model cars pretty well. Also, don't be conned into paying a fortune for Maverick models. They are pretty much like real Mavericks-- old but not that much in demand. If you have any Maverick or Comet models, in any condition, built or not, complete or not, that you wish to sell, get in touch. I'd be interested. I'm a builder though, and so I'm not interested in anything at "collector prices". Finally, I hear there is a re-release of an old Comet Pro Street model available again. Any info on that would be appreciated. Is this list worth putting in the FAQ? Feedback please. Thanks in advance for any input. Enjoy the list. John B.
