Just curious if anyone can explain why American trucks have massively long chassis'?
Better ride quality? Easier to back? Harder to find a park?
What's the reason behind it?

Well I got this one finally finished, it's the Revell reissue of the '77 Chev van, very simply build, I was just trying to make it "period correctish".
Painted Shogun grey with a Lavender purple roof and pearl coat over the top.
Decals from a Chevy Citation kit.
Only mods were wheels (MRC Hop up set), '67 Chevelle mirrors, Aluminium exhaust tips and it got lowered a little.

I was wondering if anyone knew of a 1/16 resin 77/78 Trans Am Funny Car body, did anyone ever produce them? I recently purchased a 77 TA FC body off Competition resins and would love to try a 1/16 drag car if someone makes a body.

Here's a link to the latest Holden HSV Commodore GTS, for those unaware of Holden or HSV, Holden is the Australian GM brand and HSV is Holden Special Vehicles.
Holden manufactured the 2004 Pontiac GTO's that were exported to the states, apparently according to some sources Australia is the only country in the world that still wants V8 RWD cars.
Holden are also the makers of the new Chevrolet SS sedans, they're a rebadged SS Holden Commodore.

Here's my next project, it's a resin FJ Holden van kit.
The kit is from Majestic Resin Australia and comes as virtually a complete kit.
I thought I better put one together to evaluate how well they fit and use it as a chance to re-engineer any parts if we need to, to make it more "user friendly".
Here's what the kit contains:
Mocked up, not sure what wheels I'll run yet.
Coat of primer on her, stay tuned......
