Topics I've Started

I am needing the chrome tree from either the Revell Convoy van or the Revell California Cruiser van kit. (They share the same chrome tree) I know Revell has several other van kits that are basically the same but I'm pretty sure these two are the only versions that had a chrome tree.

Photos posting upside down?

I hope this is the right section for this? When I post photos in a thread they are right side up in my folder but when I attach them to a message they end up upside down? Is there a way to correct this?

AMT Richard Petty transporter my way

20 December 2014 - 01:31 PM

One kit that I've always wanted for a long time is the AMT Richard Petty ford race car transporter kit. Being that I already have several versions of this kit I never wanted to pay the high price that they were going for. Now that Round 2 has reissued the transporter and the Dodge dart stock-car I figured I would go ahead and build it as if I had the kit. But as usual I can't leave things alone and made some changes to the transporter bed. I never liked how the ramps had the recesses for the front wheels so I sanded off all the raise detail cut a single piece of diamond plate plastic to fit in between the walls of the bed and glued it in place. I then cut two new vertical walls to place on the sides of the upper portion of the bed. Then I just assembled the bed as per the instructions. Something else I plan to do is, complete The storage boxes under the body. I haven't decided if I'm going to make the doors open or not. But knowing me, I probably will. :-)Attached File  image.jpg   61.53KB   0 downloadsAttached File  image.jpg   141.25KB   0 downloadsAttached File  image.jpg   95.9KB   0 downloadsAttached File  image.jpg   112.66KB   0 downloadsAttached File  image.jpg   112.66KB   0 downloadsAttached File  image.jpg   114.16KB   0 downloadsAttached File  image.jpg   104.09KB   0 downloads

Richard Petty Dart better tires/wheels?

18 December 2014 - 06:09 AM

I like to use Plastic Performance Products wheels and tires on my stock cars but I'm not sure which tire would be correct for use on the AMT Richard Petty Dodge Dart kit? I'm thinking the Sportsman tires? Can someone that knows these cars well, give me some suggestions?

I am needing the 455 engine and transverse transmision from any of the Oldsmobile Toronado kits, I really hate to buy the whole kit just for the running gear but will if
I have too. I am needing the engine, transverse transmission, chassis and radiator. I don't need the wheels, interior or body parts. If anyone can help, please let me know. It can be from any kit that had full engine and chassis detail.
