Corvettes and trunks

05 October 2014 - 07:43 PM

So I pulled out some old stuff from the vault and found a 1962 vette kit with the opening trunk and all the styline stuff. The custom front was already on it,so the the die was cast. As I finished up reattaching and finesseing the front I looked at the custom rear end and didn't like the fact that using it,and the custom roof would have me lose the opening trunk. I may cut out the plastic that would block the trunk.


so what is the opinions, did vettes lose or gain by not having a trunk?


rut -row I think I just asked a question.

I started this a few days ago and here are some of my observations of this kit, but first and foremost I want to thank Round 2 or whoever for re-issue of this kit AND the upgrade.

So far I have noticed some flash. I'm sure the tool has been worked harder than a rented mule so that's expected. Looking at the general molding it is done very delicately. There are e-pin marks etc, but not bad.Locating and installing the rear pan is tough,there is no locating tabs which would help. The chrome

is heavy and I've so far stripped some of the engine parts. A weird thing when cleaning up the valve covers was I looked at the engraved "SOHC"  Instead it is "ZOHC"!?


More to come, maybe some pics.




Need help with Revell's customer service

 Can anyone verify that the windshield in the Foose 1/12th Camaro is #130? I tried to BUY this part for an older issue of it. I filled out the form that the CS rep instructed using the kit #8510 and the part #130 and they responded that it is discontinued.  I know the Foose kit is #8511, but I don't know if the WS is #130 in the new issue.

Anyone know where to get one or two?  Tried MCG and it's not listed. also what is there for the AMT roadrunner, even decals as there doesn't appear to be much badging anyway.
