There is a show/swap meet here in Smyrna coming up on November 9th.. I have plans to buy 3 of each Foose kit I can find, I'm pretty sure there will be a lot of kit bashing potential in them. If nobody posts pics by then I will surely do so .

I cleared my Foose Charger today so maybe I'll be able to finish in the next week or so and post pics.

   I grabbed one of these kits today at Hobby Lobby with a 40 percent coupon (of course), and IMO, it's a good 'un. In addition to the wheels and the shaker scoop/hood, Revell tooled up a BUNCH of other new parts for it. Among them: A gorgeously engraved set of "Mopar Performance" Hemi valve covers. Interestingly, those are the exact valve covers you need if you're building the "tribute" version of the Chi-Town Hustler Charger F/C, but that Revell didn't tool up for that particular kit! Nice to have those available in scale.

   Good on Revell, too, for leaving all of the stock parts in the box and the stock markings on the decal sheet.

   I am thinking of building mine as a pro touring ride with the Foose wheels and other parts, but with a different paint scheme .... perhaps a traditional Mopar muscle car color (Sublime or Plum Crazy, anyone?) with a blacked-out hood and cowl.

Hey Carl, would you be kind enough to post up some pics of the wheels ?

I think all the "Foose" kits are going to be great for kitbashing ...

They've included four large diameter, lo-pro tires before-- '57 Bel Air, '62 Impala SS, '69 Camaro, etc., and with others ('67 Chevelle SS "Streetburner", '66 El Camino/Wagon, '62 Vette SE) they've included big 'n' bigger tire and wheels sets.

But front or rear wheels could be different, huh?
