In Topic: Anyone resin cast a '40 Ford woody?

Yes, Morgan Automotive Detail does one. Check the links in the Car aftermarket section. It's a beautiful piece of work. Highly recommended.


In Topic: 1/25 Revell '29 Model A Roadster 2'n'1

I'm very excited about this kit and I know for sure I will purchase a number of these kits regardless. And a quickchange would be a bonus but what I'm really disappointed about is the missing leaf spring suspension. Really interested in traditional rods and these did not have coil overs. I'm not building a hot rod to drive on the street as has been mentioned a number of times in this discussion. I think for most interested in this kit it is primarily for traditional hot rods and as such I do think Revell missed the mark with not including this. In other words I guess I am basically agreeing with what Bernard and Ace have been saying (I think...). I hope that Tim is correct and perhaps Revell will include leaf spring suspension in future releases. In the mean time will have to look to aftermarket for corrections as I really don't want to have to destroy a bunch of other kits to get desired results. 

 

As always,Tim, thanks for giving us such excellent background into the gestation of this kit.

My mother died on Friday the 13th. I was in a car accident (not of my own doing) on Friday the 13th....... so yeah I'm always happy to get in the door in one piece and see the 14th show up.

I don't know about anyone else but the retooled wheel covers in my kit looks like they were dipped in sand before being chromed. Bummer....
