Could you please Not Replace any more of my pictures with yours? I don't mind so much if my example is in poor condition, but not if it's good. If you do, Will you at least put my picture at the bottom of the list into a Gallery section? I put a lot of time and effort into my pictures and lists I created so I would appreciate it if you keep the lists remain as uniform looking as possible.
Not only that but my pictures on this site are the only copies that I have since my Hard Drive crashed and I don't want my files to disappear. I would appreciate your consideration, thanks, Mike. Vista69 (talk) 02:03, January 19, 2013 (UTC)
History of the Blisterpack
HI, I really like the History of the Blisterpack you have started. Are you planning to show pictures from all of the series from a particular year, or just the mainline blisters? This could become quite an undertaking. Looks good so far. Carnitasfever (talk)
I was shooting for a history point of view. So I would say at least one example of each.Like in 1978/79 they really started using more of group or series theme, so included lots of those. Seems like people who have just started collecting in the past 20 years , really bond with that thought. If your thinking like Zowees, Hot Birds, Sizzlers, California customs, Simpsons, Color Changers, etc.. Maybe a link section to where they have there own pages already?
Thanks BTWFlyin colors (talk) 16:40, February 6, 2013 (UTC)
Another thought is to add all to that that year, but this way it might get a little big. But could make sections/group of years pages. Like part 1 and 2 or 1968 to 1972 pages. It could get reoriginized to fit the needs of the reader.Flyin colors (talk) 16:48, February 6, 2013 (UTC)
I was looking at the similar castings part of Thunderstreak you set up, and I was wondering if you knew how it differed from Formula Fever. Of course I see the change in the wing there about 1994. Did they remove the metal wing off the base of the original and then cast a new top section of the vehicle? Also, do you think Turbo Streak would be a good candidate for a similar casting as well? It is another Formula 1 style vehicle that looks similar to the first version of Thunderstreak. Carnitasfever (talk)
The casting is the same Formula fever/early thunderstreak. There is casting number change, so there is probably a small modification or it might have been because of the name change. To answer your second question "Did they remove the metal wing off the base of the original and then cast a new top section of the vehicle?" yes , the casting was modified the wing was removed from the base and cast into the body.
As for the Thunder Streak I would say yes they are both indy style cars, but that is about as close to similar as they come. The Thundersteak has a 3 piece body as well. I really should drill both castings. I will post photos. But at last they are cast very differently. I hope I cleared up that on that casting pages also Thunderstreak and Formula Fever . Tell me what you think.Flyin colors (talk) 19:35, February 13, 2013 (UTC)
