Never heard of Scale Auto Decals, or a conversion kit for the AMT Gremlin who makes what. Great build

The decals were from Scale Auto Details (my company) and some of my decals have been reviewed by Gregg in Model Cars Magazine. I have a Fotki album where I show many of my decals and some of the resin parts I sell. You can access the Scale Auto Details album at this link:   http://public.fotki....caleautodetails

 

Resin parts are available to convert the AMT (R2) '76 Gremlin into a 72-73 Gremlin. Another path is to use the 72 front end (grill/bumper and front pan) from the old AMT Gremlin Funny Car kit and cut the rear '76 bumper apart to simulate the 73 bumper/pan.

Bill,

 

The old MPC Dyno Don Pinto ProStock chassis is almost a direct replacement. Not much modification needed. Also, unlike the mustang, the Pinto had the same wheelbase as the Gremlion. The Pinto ProStock interior also fits with little modification.

 

 

I remember you mentioned this in your build thread, but I would need to also locate a pro stock pinto kit . And they aren't exactly giving them away . Even if I came up with a decent pinto kit I would want to build it as a Gapp-Roush car, there for I would need 2

 

Thus for me this would not be a car to do if on a budget. So far all have to do this car is the idea and the 72 bumpers/grille .

Missing Link  has a 1972 style grille and bumpers (ft and rear ) I just got a set a few weeks back

 

I've seen the decals on ebay a few times

 

 

But, And I think Slixx now has the decals to do this car as well as Wally Booths 1969 Camaro

Bill,

 

I have sold a TON of the Wally Booth ProStock Gremlin decals through mail order and eBay. You are correct that Slixx has a new multicar set that includes Wally Booth's Gremlin. I think I may wind up seelling more decal sets than they will for this model since mine were available first and some folks don't want to spend money on decals for another car they will never build. The Slixx set is more expensive and is ideal for those who would want to build a Wally Booth Gremlin and Camero. I will eventually pick up a set of the Slixx decals for my collection. Slixx makes FANTASTIC decals.

For those interested, I have a three page write up on everything I did to build this model. Send me an e-mail at doctordwp@gmail.com and ask for the Wally Booth ProStock Gremlin writeup and I will send you an electronic copy.

Bill,

 

I understand. I have several of the Dyno Don Pintos along with a started junker kit I bought for the Gremlin project. I also have some of the Gapp & Roush Pinto kits. One of these days I'll build one of each.
