Build any model that you think is a really good kit, that for the most part gets ignored. build it any way you want, and have fun.

How's that for a rule?


If all rules were like this, the world would be such a nice place.

Sounds good to me. However can we stretch the due date until say - April? Real life has a way of back burnering my hobbies.

Yeah, that is what I'm talking about. Those are good kits and I have yet to see one built.

Iposted a finished one earlier this year in the under glass section, AMT's ragtop version of the kit.

Yeah I've been following along, and it looks awesome! I built up the whole kit already, but I've been wanting to rebuild the Ramcharger to go with another couple builds of mine. :P

Esci's Ford Transit

Of the above, probably only the Transit has any shot at being finished by the end of '10 because it's a pretty simple curbside, but who knows? Maybe I'll jump in on this one. :rolleyes:

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the 70's Dusters (street or stock) or the mis labled Dodge Dart kits. Even when they were new I only saw a few built. I saw quite of few started, but only a few finished.

You know, that just reminded me of another AMT Mopar, and quite possibly my entry in this build, the 70 Coronet Super Bee Pro Street kit. I think that was a nice kit that was quite popular, but has anyone ever really seen it built the way it was intended? I'm sure most were parted out either for the Hemi or the back halves, or both. Mine sure were! I know before I lost my first collection in a house fire in 1997, I had at least 3 or 4 of them that were all raided for parts. I currently have 5 of them on the shelf now, and one still sealed just so I wouldn't be tempted to steal parts from it!

Nice builds, Brett.


Thanks Matt. I've got two more to build, one as a pretty much stock coronet (will swap chassis with a 68 roadrunner) and the other as a pro st but not coming thru the hood.....maybe lol.

Has April 2011 been decided on for the deadline? If so, I'm in. I have at least 30 plus models that would qualify, but one in particular that I have been wanting to do.
