Heres a good pic showing the comparison between the Lionel 1/64 and the 1/64 they are selling in Wal-Marts and potentially Target and Toys R Us.

The roof seems a little flatter.

The whole thing just looks kind of "fat", I guess lol.

I've mentioned I want to try and make my own "custom" from a WC duplicate I have. Saw where you could use brake fluid to try and strip paint, so that's what I've started doing. So far it's working to take the decals off.
I'm hoping once it soaks a little I can get it down to bare metal.

hopefully that trick works better on metal than it does on the lexan bodies I use for RC stuff.

I saw you could do it on plastics too, the risk though is the plastic becoming deformed lol.

If could submerge the whole thing and let it sit it would probably scrub off pretty easily. I'm using a fine grit steel wool right now.

So somebody on DCZ looked through my hero cards collection and he wants to buy some. The ones he listed aren't particularly "big" names. Just deciding what a fair offer would be is difficult, I've never sold hero cards before lol.

The names are Patrick Sheltra, Tim Mitchell, Dusty Cornelius, Rich Clouser, Justin Wakefield, Darren Brown, Jason Hedlesky, Ricky Turner, and Justin Larson, plus an SIP performance card. 10 cards in all. So what might be a fair offer?

12-15 bucks for all of them I would say.

You would think a harder envelope would be better, but apparently I've seen on DCZ people say that they are more likely to get bent in the harder ones than in the softer one.

Also don't want them to stick together, so maybe just some printer paper as spacers?
