but more options (if any) would be nice

The Lindberg '46-'46 is the same kit as the old PYRO and Life-Like kits. I've seen it come out really nice with some work. The worst part of the kit is the wheels and tires! When I build my '48, I'll probably combine it with the Monogram '41.

so the real question now is; who among us has, unbuilt, both of these kits to compare parts between them, and who has the pyro kit for sale or trade?

I understand that this kit is supposed to be reissued soon. Hobby Heaven shows it in their catalog, but shows it on backorder.

parts from other kits and mold it together to a club coupé.
i do have the 1:1 to compare with so itll be allright, only id hope to
find one "factory-made" kit...
not too much is different from the continental, its basicly the rear end

I still think there are a lot of parts that could be interchanged. The Lindberg engine is a joke, and even though the Monogram engine may be a little large, I think it would work well. Sometimes I like to use 1/24 parts, especially engines, in 1/25 cars, because it fills out the engine compartment better.

i got it so cheap, it doesent really matter, but still this kit is really
in shops, WHY? the headligths are not clear lenses, they are chromed
and pieced together with the chromeparts surrounding the actual headlight
the hubcaps look more like little hats than hubcaps, ive got some
photos of this, that ill uppload as soon as ive fixed the computer at home.
and the engine looks like, like... ehh, it doesent even closely resemble
why in the earth are these lame kits so expensive!!??

really, only the body shell as a starting point is of any use except to do a straight out-of-box build. you could carefully drill out the cast-in headlight lenses and replace them with parts-box ones. replacing the kit v-12 requires either a monogram 41 kit OR.. i'd splice together a couple of shortened v8 blocks from AMT's 40 sedan delivery with some other modifications. they'd look a little more like the lincoln v12 than the kit engine. as a matter of fact; i'd lengthen the frame from the sedan delivery and use it instead of the kit version.

i also glued the body yesterday, and theres MUCH filling to do.
this kit, and the design of the car really appeals for a rodbuild,
but since im doing itat a request as BONE stock, i cant.
