I was just over looking at the Model Roundup's site, and saw the listings for the 69 GTO funny car that was supposed to be Arnie Bestwick's "Super Judge" car, and there was no indication that the "Super Judge" decals were included. Did they have licensing issues?? What is the scoop here?? Reguardless, i will still buy one and use my "Super Judge" decals i already have. Just wondering.

It has generic decals including the stock Judge striping in several colors. From what I understand licensing from Arnie was cost prohibitive. Slixx has Arnie's decals for those who wants to build one that way.

On a side note, the body in that kit is bone stock '69 and can be kitbashed to make a stock GTO.

thanks for the heads up, Sean!! BTW, i just picked up one of the "Allison Thunderland" T-bird F/C's, and the body is also a bone-stocker as well. Any ideas on how this kit will build up??

I've gotten the new T-Bird but haven't had a chance to build it yet. The Allison motor is pretty cool though.

If you really was feeling "frisky", you could pick up or use one of the MK "2 much" twin engine FED, scrap the twin V-8's, and slam that Allison in it!!!! SCHA-WING!!!
