Hopefully the RMoM Hallock windshield will fit with little or no work.


Matt...my bet is that it will fit...as you say, with little or no work.  The AMT and Revell bodies look very similar to my eye, except for the modified rear quarter openings and correct engraving on the rear wheel well inner fenders, as referenced in my original post back on page one....

I have a soft spot for traditional old Ford rods, so I can't wait for this one and I'll probably end up with a few.


However; Tim, I have to fully agree that we are ready for a new tool '70 GTO/Judge. 


Now all we need is someone with influence to put a bug in one of the manufacturers' ear... Hint, Hint 




Nate...while I'm not someone 'with influence" (this is especially the case now that Roger Harney has passed away), I've still made this suggestion several times already.


The Corvette and Muscle Car Nationals would be another place to find a pristine '70 GTO Judge HT or CV for these purposes.  But in some cases (particularly if we can convince the model companies that the up front investment in digitally scanning historic muscle cars would more than offset the costs having to redo already- cut tooling, and the avoidance of lost sales due to incorrect proportioning of body designs), it might be better to get an "under restoration" car than a 100 point completed restoration.   (Some scanning processes involve a silver-like dust that can be a little difficult to clean up after the scan is completed).  it's also vitally important to get a 1/1 that is correctly restored (some of the kit problems have been attributed to incorrect restorations being used as the basis for researching kits).  


If you and others agree on the '70 Judge idea, (and it sounds like you for one completely agree), never hurts to drop a note to Revell, Moebius, Round2, or anyone else that you think might be interested in such a kit.  Just a suggestion....(smile)!.  


And glad to hear you're on board with the '29A Ford Roadster kit....TIM
