Revell Datsun BRE parts kits. AM Corvette parts kit

28 January 2015 - 05:47 PM



For trade...
Two (2) Revell Datsun 510 kits. Both are missing entire engine assembly, tires, and decals. There is one instruction sheet. Both kits are in one box.
Accurate Miniatures Corvette Grand Sport. Kit is missing the carburetors and headers.

I would very much prefer these all go together to save time and shipping work.

I am looking for:
Surf related decals
The tires from AMT's lowrider 1970 Monte Carlo
Beehive oil filter(s)
Extra headlights, preferably in sets of four
Side view mirrors - prefer 60's versions
Weber carbs
Small velocity stacks
Turned pulleys
Straight six engines or parts
Four cylinder engines or parts

Hopped up Hudson 308 - dual plugs?

21 January 2015 - 05:54 AM

I am building a somewhat fantasy high performance Hudson 308. I was going to fabricate a new head for it and include double spark plugs. I have no idea if this would result in any gains in the real world, but I am after more of a gotcha look...
My question - would I just include two distributor caps with the same firing order? How would that be attached to the block? Any ideas or thoughts are welcome.

I will also be adding three weber like carbs on a scratchbuilt manifold and header.

What? No buzz surrounding Academy's all new tool Hyundai Azera model?


I haven't been able to dig up much on this kit yet...says "quick build" and "multi color parts" - so, snap kit or???

Love those late 70 "Theme" Cars?

18 April 2014 - 05:41 AM

I love the late 70s - not because they were great - because they gave us so much cheese. The themed cars of the time are, well, awesome - now.

I spotted this Plymouth Fire Arrow in Colville, WA, yesterday. Actually, they are kind of cool little cars - made by Mitsubishi - four banger, rear wheel drive...enjoy the eye candy...
