Haven't been on in quite awhile so  I will have to get back in the saddle and finish some of my own projects. Love that the lx coupe should be out springtime,I will definitely be buying a case of them for various builds. I'm gonna go back thru the pages to look at some of ya'lls work...Ridgley

Thanks guys, glad you like it!

For those that don't care for the raised cowlhoods... how about a non-cowl SVO hood...

Be ready guys, after seeing Revells LX 5.0 Coupe in person.................................................. :)

If you want to build a 1:25 four-eye notch, I have it on good authority that the new Revell chassis will work under Kris Morgan's '79 transkit body. You'd still need to backdate the interior and engine (unless you want a restomod), but I might be jumping in with one of those. That, and there's the matter of me still having to wrap up the Mark VII.

For those interested, I dug out an old hood I had made, LONG ago...

 

100_3893_zps16b8faf0.jpg

 

And then I made a resin mold and cast it...

 

100_3895_zpscfe2ff04.jpg

 

It was made to look like an AF/X /// Reliable Resin hood. It is not the same, however.

 NIETHER is it another repop. Unlike the others, my hood has hinges, to keep them in place.

(How long the resin hinges last is another story!)

The hood looks good, Jason. Any plans to cast more of them?

 I don't know,  I tried a new mold rubber which is different then I was use to, and it took forever to dry.

Even when I thought it SHOULD BE dry, it was not. as such there is a blemish in the mold about dead center of the hood.  

But it's easily fixable, with a bit of sanding. I could make a new mold, but I really don't see the point.

 Besides, it's still better then the other guys recast of the Reliable Hood!

 

 

You can kind of see the flaw in this pic, though I think I sanded on the hood a little....

Jason, I suspected you wouldn't really want to pop these for others!  :)

 

Well, with the LX Coupe less than a month away, I imagine this thread MAY pick up again. I have been too busy with 1:1 FOXes to get to any building time for the 1/24th-1/25th versions!
