Showboat! Great news for traditional hot rod builders. Nailhead Nailhead Nailhead Nailhead. It was getting tough to find this kit for a reasonable price just to rob the engines out of it. :)

Bought on ebay. Received today. Now to figure out what I want to do with it.

Is that an original issue or a reissue from the 90's? original issue was molded in blue and the reissue is molded in grey if I recall correctly. plus an original issue will not have a barcode on the box. the original issue has a bunch of cool custom parts that were not in the later issues.

My local home hardware carries it. Maybe check to see if they can order it in for you if they don't have it on the shelf.

In Topic: Vintage Kit Review: AMT's Other 1/25th '57 Thunderbird

It's a shame AMT didn't release the non-Craftsman T-bird kit with the molded in frame.  It's a bitch trying to line up the window glass with the chrome frame & body.  Additionally, even when using a sprue cutter, I've ended up taking a healthy chunk out of the  chrome frame.


For taking parts off of the sprue that I think might get damaged buy a sprue cutter like windshield frames and some rims depending on how the gates are molded, I use a razor saw in an exacto blade handle. gives me better control of whether it will take a chunk out of the part or not.

In Topic: How many model A Ford kits are there ?

you missed at least one. Monogram released the cabriolet from the original 60's 1930 coupe/cabriolet kit as a stand-alone kit. that is why the 30 coupe kit has no fender well pockets for the side mount spare tires anymore. they tooled up a new set of fenders when they split the kit in two.
