I gots the popcorn.  Can't wait for the show! :D  The mere size makes them a beast to body drop.  Since you were asking for advice earlier, I can start by telling you that, in body dropping, you will find that the dash and interior are not exactly 100% proportionate to each other.  Also you may want to consider fabbing a 100% new interior tub floor.  The bench seat looks ridiculous against the ceiling when mounted on the risers.

 Thanks. I planned on making a new interior tub anyways.

Well. We are in the process of moving right now also and while going through my closet, I found a box of old(ish) models that my uncle gave me 4 or 5 years ago. I always wanted to build them, just never got around to it. I was going through the box and it seems most of the models are AMT, but all of the parts are mixed up and it would be more effort than it is worth to try and figure out what parts got to each car, so I am just going to throw all of it into a better box and now I have all kinds of parts. I may use the bodys in later projects or chop them up and use pieces as I'm customizing different projects. This makes me feel better now, because I thought I was going to have to start my parts collection over again, but now I have a good base to start with again.

Welcome back to the hobby John.   You should stop by the Plastruct and Evergreen plastic websites and download their catalogs.  i find them handy for planning scratch projects.  Also find a good scale converter program/site.  Grab some Proweld type liquid adhesive, regular model kinda sucks for because of the drying time.    crank up some tunes and dig in.

Yeah. I plan on it later when I get done working outside. I have allot of things I need to do. I am going to order the model on monday afternoon.

 

It's like riding a bicycle.  :)  It all comes back to you.  I definitely recommend reading the tips and tricks and Q&A sections.  I learned stuff that I would have never thought of before.  :)

I know. I am remembering allot of tricks that I am reading here that I knew before.
