Just got this 1964 1/2 Mustang.  First time I have seen one that is properly labeled for the 64 1/2 production (Ford brought the car out early).  Wife and I had one just like this except it was Maroon back in the day (yea - ' 64 1/2 !) .  Its a little big at 1/36 but it was a small car so its not too bad.  Im a tinplate guy mostly so this will fit in especially given my personal connection with this car. Bought at Walgreens for $5.99

Nice find Don,  One of my older brothers bought the 64/1/2 also, it was the coolest car on the road.  He was recently discharged from the Army and hired by the NYFD. So, this was his treat to himself.  I remember when he took us for ride, boy those rear seats were tight. His was but of course, Fire Engine Red'.... I was only 12, so he wouldn't  let me drive it........ But it was a cool car', and the current Mustangs are still very cool cars'....

I recently got a shipment from Forum sponsor Diecast Direct. Here are two of the models, both Ford F-1s, and both 1:43. On the left, a Yat-Ming/Road Signature 1948. On the right, a Greenlight 1951:

Both pickups are loaded up and headed for Chef Chuck Wagon's railroad commissary. The items in the 1951 F-1 are intended for Chef's diner if I ever manage to return to working on it.  (The pink formica on the tiled counter will be toned down some day.)  I love the detail of the tire under the truck bed.  In fact, the under carriages of all the Greenlight models I got are very nicely done. (These are my first Greenlight models.) The Coke in the '48 is for the work crew:

Here's a (reduced) xerox of a cartoon I did over the summer that explains why I had to have these two models ...

You can see how much larger the cab and window of the '51 are, but the truck beds are roughly the same size:

The two-toned interior detail and the upholstery are nice touches:

A detail that I expected to see but isn't present is the name "Ford" across the hubcaps.  There's a groove where I would expect it to go, but that's it.  The '48 has it:

I'll post photos of my other purchases as time allows. Enjoy!
