In Topic: 1/25 AMT Jim Cushman Plymouth Duster

Will be interesting to see if the reissued kit includes the full side graphic treatment of the 1/1....as the original kit omitted it (I recall the insider story c. 1975 or so being that AMT's leadership told the engineering team that they couldn't afford the bigger decal sheet that would have been needed to have included the side graphics....).....TIM 

In Topic: Somebody give us a '40 / '41 Chevy Coupe!

Today, 08:15 AM

All it would take to do a kit of the '41 Chevy from Galaxie would be the front clip, a dash, and the chrome parts tree!  The '46-48 Chevies were merely warmed over 1941-1942 cars!




What Art said.....look at the front doors of the Galaxie kits....during assembly this area is covered by the extended front fenders of the '46-48 design...but underneath....you'll see the '41 Chevy sheet metal////err////styrene, fully intact on Galaxie's body casting!  Now that the '46-'48 is to be available as a five window coupe (the previous kit had the aero sedan bodystyle that wasn't available in the '41 IIRC), now all this needs is what Art mentions above.  


The '41 Chevy is my personal favorite among all the pre-war Chevies, and I would really enjoy being able to build a 1/25th scale of that car (probably as a nicely kitbashed 1970's style retro-rod...).

Mike...that's a really interesting idea or two there.  I'll try to make sure it gets passed on to the Board of Trustees....TIM
