must have missed that thread... got a link?

Anyways, with the saws, glue, putty, files and imagination that most of us possess, those fenders aren't much of an obstacle ;)

Looking at a couple of revell body shells has spawned another 'hmmmmm'...

...especially if the new front end on order is as good as it looks   ^_^

Looks like there's finally a solution to the Revell's awkwardly shaped front end!

Glad I ordered one of these last night; looks like he's out of stock now, kinda like maybe he had a run of orders... wonder what caused that ^_^

Been wanting to do one of these for quite a while, more since I read about Mr Boyd's '70 Boss project a while back, but that snoot put me off.

The pics aren't as clear as I'd hoped but you get the idea. I just missed picking up missing link's last copy of the '69 a couple of years ago.

The mpc body isn't all that bad; the hood is the same size as the amt part and I think the windshield opening looks better. The amt body could probably benefit from some upper windshield trim finessing a la the F350 -_-  

Another historical bonus I happened upon the other night was a thoughtful kit part spread photo of the '70 blue crescent parts (from the big auction site) so I'll add that one with a pic of the '69 amt kit...
