Good to see how that kit came together, Pat. I found myself quite intrigued by the pic of the box you posted earlier.

Interesting choice to build it right out of the box. Looks good. Yes

YES!!!!  I've had this kit on back order at my local hobby shop for so long.  One of the model sites on youtube just announced that they're conducting a Tom Daniels' Group Build too!  Now that's perfect timing!  T.D.'s kits bring back so many good memories for me.  That's why I built the "Trouble Maker, Roar and Peace, and Leap Hog" this year.

Tom-. Appreciate you supporting the local LHS, but check out Mega Hobby.  Atlantis brand, page 3&4.  They show the Grader, Lil Red Baron, trantula, roar and peace (bike and 3 wheeler), unreal roller, and way out chopper.  Seem to be in stock at decent prices.

Goldhammer, thanks for the tip of Mega Hobby, you sure were right about their prices, they're great.  The "problem" is that I've already bought and built the Lil Red Baron & Lil Trantula,Roar and Peace, Leap Hog, and Trouble Maker.  I've also bought the King Chopper but it's still in the stash.  So I'll honor my order and keep my order for the Groovy Grader and Unreal Roller with my LHS but will definately keep Mega Hobby in mind for future purchases. I sure hope that Atlantis continues reissuing these "classic/vintage" kits.  Building these kits is like taking a time machine back to the 1960-1970s.

That is awesome Pat. That came out great (grade?)Embarrassed. The release of these kits is wonderful and refreshing and I'm glad to see you building these. It;s definitely a walk down memory lane.

Looks very cool, Pat.

My brother purchased this reissue and he'd like to get the decal design like those in the original kit. Does anyone know if the original design can be purchased somewhere? It's a long-shot, but thought I'd ask.

Thanks guys. I don't know where you could get any of the original decals from, especially not here in the UK. Mind you I've printed some decals for other models only if the quality of the prints are really perfect.
