Topics I've Started

General Concern About Kit Leaf Springs

18 March 2014 - 08:33 AM

I got to looking at a couple rear wheel drive kits that I have and I am really starting to come to an annoying conclusion about leaf spring replication.  I know there are a couple kits out there that don't fall under this catagory.  But as a general rule, I've noticed that most leaf sprung kits mount the leaves by a locator pin or a slat mounted into a groove on the frame.  Why don't more kits have leaf spring hangers as a prominent intergration to their design?  It doesn't bother me to the point that I won't buy a kit because of it.  But it sure does make me wonder about things.

Best Kit for LS1

09 January 2014 - 08:16 PM

Title pretty much sums it up.  I would just like to know if anyone has an idea which kit or kits (not resin, packaged kits like Revell or Round 2) has/have the best LS1 from the 1998ish 1:1 era.  Only thing I can think of is a Camaro or Firebird kit but, which ones and are these the best/only option?

Bill Jenkins 66 Nova Question

27 December 2013 - 06:50 PM

OK, so I just opened my first "Grumpy's Toy" 66 Nova.  When I got the kit in good light, the plastic was a funky yellowish white color.  It looked like it was tar stained by sitting next to the ashtray of a chain smoker for six months.  Is this the normal color of the kit or is there something wrong with mine.  I figured I would ask before I started building it.

Revell DONK 70 Chevelle

05 December 2013 - 05:20 AM

OK, from my understanding, the Revelle DONKS Chevelle does have the factory style build parts as well as the Donk specific suspension and wheels.  So, my question is, does anyone have this kit?  If so, could you please post a picture of the decal sheet?  If posting a picture of the decal sheet is not feasable, I just need a 100% yes or no on whether this comes with stock black stripes.


I really don't want to have to special order an AMT 70 Chevelle for the stripes when I can just pick up the donks kit the next time I go to my nearest Hobby Town.  They have a couple in stock.

Missing Rivi Parts

21 November 2013 - 09:38 AM

I found the CruisinUSA Riviera on ebay but, it is missing some parts because it's a bagged up kit.  I don't care about the Barris particulars but, can someone familiar with the kit, in general tell me what's missing aside from the wheels and tires?  I think it may be missing bumpers and some other body chrome as well.  I thought about buying it to make a lowrider but, I ain't buyin' if there are critical parts I can't just grab out of the parts box.
