In Topic: New AAR hood for the new Revell 1:25 scale Cuda kit

18 August 2014 - 07:33 AM

This is kind of an old thread but I am interested also in a transkit.  Btw I had an AAR Cuda and it had a warped hood.  It was bright red.

forgot about this thread. has this hood been cast? have I missed it?

 

anyways, don't want to hijack this thread and I certainly am not calling anyone out on this, but the factory did not put a bump, budge, bend or any other word you want to come up with in the AAR hoods, there is no mention of it in any publication I have read. nor have I ever seen any documentation on this. again, to my knowledge, this "bend" in the hood was caused by opening, closing, a little too tall air cleaner or just plain old laying, or leaning in the factory just too long, they will tend to bend and warp that way also.. if anyone can come up with any information on this hood, I would love to see it. would make interesting reading. I have scanned the internet on this and have come up empty.

 

these are the articles I have in my personal collection that have no mention on the "bent" hoods;

 

Car and Driver - July '70, Car Life - July '70, Hot Rod - June '70, PHR - July '70, Road Test - June '70

 

here also is the AAR Cuda web site

really, I am not looking for any debate on this. this has been talked about for ever and I am looking for some documentation on these hoods.

 

thanks in advance,

LOL. cant beat blown big blocks, but I have always liked a 4bbl big blocks in them. whatever you decide, I am sure it will be a killer. I will be jealousley watching.(I want a vega, soo bad I pitched a few in my younger days, who wanted vegas back then anyways)

well, I know I have a few of the Matt Hay t-birds and a Lincoln kit you mentioned. I have a pretty busy weekend coming up, if I can find a set, I will get them off to you next week.

 

have a great day,
