Charger 500 conversion

Are there any resin conversions kits to turn a Revell Daytona Charger into a Charger 500? I think this would make a much nicer Charger 500 then the AMT kit.

Richard Petty #43 Plymouth Superbird

23 April 2010 - 08:12 AM

Wow been a while since I signed in here. Moved and baby on the way now so I haven't had much time to do any kits... B) Anyway, I watched Cars for the first time last night with my step son. I actually thought it was a fun film! Anyway, I got inspired to make a Richard Petty #43 Plymouth Superbird out of one of my Revell Superbird kits. I need help. I need to find some resin parts, maybe some photo etched parts like the extra center hood pin, nascar wheels from the 70's (I've seen these online), roll cage, ideas modifying the interior bucket, the motor setup with the correct intake and all, etc... And most of all, LOTS of reference photos! I've been searching google, but I can't find a whole lot showing the inside of the car, the tail of the car, and especially the under hood. Please help!

I did find window net and decals on ebay that might work...

68-69 Gto Parts *Note To Casters*

03 January 2010 - 07:55 AM

The Revell '69 GTO Judge kit offers a cool little extra; parts to make a '68 GTO. The only problem being that the '68 interior is different then the 69 GTO... I wish someone would make a correct interior bucket, seats, and dash for the 1/24 kit. On ebay I've seen a nice set of photo etched parts for the 68 GTO. I also wish someone would cast different bumpers for the 68-69. 68 non-hide-away grill (Yes this was available is 1968), 68 open hide-aways, 69 non-hide-away grill, 69 open hide-aways, and a Le Mans Tempest grill/ bumper would be cool too.

Anyone know if there are any 1970 Chevelle Wagon kits out there?

68-69 Pontiac GTO, Le Mans, Tempest ideas

04 December 2009 - 11:49 AM

I wasn't sure if I should post this here or in the resin section. Some ideas for resin casters that I'd like to see are for the 1968-1969 Pontiac GTO, Tempest, or Le Mans, like a non-GTO Tempest/Le Mans hood, Tempest/Le Mans bumper, GTO bumper with open headlights... I mean, don't get me wrong; I love the GTO, but why not make a Tempest/Le Mans sleeper for the heck of it, right? ;) Isn't that part of the fun of this hobby?

Another thing I'd like if someone could make some is a set of the right style hi-performance Hooker headers pictured below.
