Who Makes Alternative Hoods For The '71 Johan 'cuda Ps?

18 December 2007 - 06:30 PM

I would like to use a different hood on the Johan Pro Street / Pro Stock '71 Cuda. Does anyone make anything different than what is in the kit? It would still need to clear the kit's tunnel ram & carbs. Thanks in advance.

Mild Custom 57 Chevy

Well I finally finished one. Its just the basic Revell snap kit except for a scratch built shifter porch, boot & straight pin shifter plus the wheels from '63 'vette snap kit. Paint is Testors Model Master lacquer dark bronze metallic with their one shot clear. It was polished with Meguire's Scratch X and waxed with Meguire's NXT. Interior is Tamiya Champaign Gold with body color accents. It was a fun build and hopefully it wil break my slump. Enjoy!

'57 Chevy Mild Modern Custom

This is my first full foil job. The paint is Testor's MM Dark Bronze Metallic over white Tamiya primer with Tamiya Mica Silver on the insert. The emblems, fender gills and door handles were removed. It still needs the gunsights painted, cleared over the foil job, the grill black washed and the dash needs detailing. The interior is the body color with Tamiya Champaign Gold and has a scratched shifter porch and shift boot with a straight pin shifter. I'm using the large Torque Thrusts from the Revell '63 'vette snap kit. Enjoy

Opening Doors On The Big Deuce?

23 October 2007 - 03:25 PM

I just picked up a pair of the most recent issue Big Deuces and I noticed that the hinges form earlier issues were there along with the separate inner door panels. It also looked like the doors were molded with partial connection to the body like you could easily cut them out and make them open. Am I interpreting this correctly? Are there any pieces missing? Has anyone opened up the doors on this kit? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
