Are the carburetors molded nicely in this kit or are there ejection pin marks on them ?

If you ask me, the carbs are a major selling point for the kit. VERY nicely done, and well molded. There might be some ejector pin marks on them, but if there are, they're faint on mine.

What's the difference between this kit and the Ford T-Bucket Amigo Pack kit?

Can anyone tell me what R & M parts are available for the Tweedy Pie? I am a real fan of the stuff Norm does.
The Tweedy Pie is up next for me.

thanks and sorry to resurrect an old thread.

As long as this thread came up again, I thought I'd add some info from a link I posted in General the other day. Those who live in the L.A. area can see Tweedy Pie at Galpin Motor Sports, a custom shop, along with other Roth creations.

Here's a review of the history of the kit:

I just took a quick look through the most recent R & M catalog that I have (2011) and I don't see the Tweedy Pie parts listed anymore, but as you may know, it's a big rambling document. The best thing to do is probably to contact Norm and ask him.

That is a great idea. I think it is his W8 wheel set but maybe there is more.

I managed to dig out the instruction sheet and parts list that came witht the R&M trans-kit:

 

RMTweedyPieparts-vi.jpg

As you can see, it's quite a few parts, but many of these have probably been restored and are contained in the current Revell version. Keep in mind that none of these parts are chrome plated - I sent mine out to ChromeTech when I built this almost ten years ago. It also came with an annotated copy of the original instructions and a couple of pages on how to use all those parts.

 

One cool thing about the R&M kit is that it allows you to build the car in a few different configurations - I built mine as the early Roth version.
