Finally, My dream build... A 1970 AMX!

17 December 2009 - 04:44 PM

Hi Everybody,
Well, since being new here, you guys have seen a few of my previous builds since I had gotten back into the hobby... Finally, "Thanks!" to Kevin at Missing Link, I am able to start on my dream build of an 1970 AMX. I have wanted to build one for so long it's not even funny. I hope to make this my first contest model, we'll see how it goes...

I am going the "Pro Street" route as I have a buddy from my hometown area that had one and I was always envious of that car, it was beautiful! I'll try to be consistent with updates on the build, but that will depend on my work schedule... So, follow along and enjoy! :)

This is as I received the kit from Missing Link...

Here is a pic of the chassis that I want to use( white one ), It is from the AMT Pro Street Nova ( '66-'67 ). I had already started trimming the chassis pan before taking these pics, so I took one with an additional chassis next to it so you can compare the few differences that are noticeable so far... I think I'll take another pic when it is done.... I am going to have to shorten up the chassis, I just haven't figured out how much yet...

And here is how it is shaping up for now...

OK, That's all I have for the moment, I am laying aside all the various parts and pieces that I have been scrounging up... More pics to come! :)

About decals...

02 December 2009 - 02:14 PM

Hi Guys,

I was doing a little cruzin' on the net and found that Fred Cady decals is no longer in business.... Now, because I'm a late bloomer on this particular tidbit of info, can anyone point me in a nice direction for obtaining musclecar decals?

Thanks!

Question about MPC scale...

29 November 2009 - 08:08 AM

Hi All,
Can anybody tell me about an MPC kit's scale... I haven't seen any in this scale before and am curious about parts availability... I saw an MPC "Lightning" AMX kit that supposedly is in 1/20 scale. Has anybody built this kit and were you able to get aftermarket parts for it? Thanks, Steve
