22 July 2014 - 06:21 AM

I am looking for a 2 sets of valve covers and 2 air cleaners assemblies as pictured below. Have a couple 65 Barracudas that I am planning and need said parts. Any ideas on where I can get them?

Plymouth 273 Engine Source

What would be the best source for a 273 small block for a 1965 Barracuda? Also what would be the best choice in a donor chassis? MCW says MPC 69 Cuda for chassis but was looking for more detail. Would Revell Dart or AMT 71 Duster be best since it comes with small block as well?


Panel seperation lines molding?

07 July 2014 - 06:18 AM

I am greatful for the model companies molding new and reissuing some great models but, what is it with them that they seem to not be able to model the seperation line between the the front fenders and rocker panels? Is it me or does it seem like more cases then not the don't have the panel seperation molding into the bodies? It's a fairly easy scribe to do but it would be nice if they would do it. For instances look at the new 1970 Cuda that Revell has done. I am on my 3rd one (2 Stock and 1 Sox kit) and have had to scribe it into the bodies. There have been many others here of late that I have notcied that don't have all panel line molding in. It's not just Revell thats doing either.

What would be the correct colors for this car? I have seen pictures from A blue that looks close to Corporate Blue to B5 Blue? I've seen anywhere from Red to Orange as well. Any idea guys?

Amt 63 Corvette donor chassis

16 June 2014 - 03:21 PM

What would be the best source for a donor chassis with more detail for Amt's 63 Corvette kit? Rebellious 65-67 Corvette? Revell 62 corvette? Amt 62 corvette? I'm looking for something that is not a molded lump and has more detail? Will also like a more detailed 327 fuelie for it. Any ideas?
