In Topic: AMT 1970 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 454 - Misty Turquoise

Love the color choices and detailing....as usual with your builds. Only "nip pick" I can bring up is the wiper arms. I'm almost sure that they were a low-gloss satin silver in the early 70's. Black arms didn't start to appear until the late 70's early 80's (as on my 1.1 84 Chrysler Fifth Avenue). :wub:Fury3


In Topic: 1962 Ford Sunliner Update, 8/1, Adding Some Color

I too am fond of this color as my parents had a new 63 Fairlane 500 in that color. The interior was especially attractive, being a harmonizing two tone all vinyl of Chestnut and Rose Beige. (I had to Simoniz it every 6 months with my dad...it was my responsibility). After researching this color, it was a "restricted" color according to the 62-63 Ford factory literature. "Chestnut Metallic" was only available on the Fairlane 500's, Galaxie 500's, XL's (Country Sedan and Squire), and the Thunderbird. It was not available on any Falcons, or the base Fairlane and full size Fords. BTW, your Galaxie 500 is looking good to my eyes and I'll be watching your progress! Cheers, Fury3 :)


In Topic: Moebius at the NNL East

I'm not going to bore Dave, or anyone else with what I'd like to see tooled. That's really not important right now, as Dave has mentioned. The following has been mentioned before, but I want to clearly state it again. What Moebius is offering us that is new and refreshing is a company that is listening to our wants and needs, and has raised the bar on quality substantualy. The beautiful/correct tires, bodies that are mostly tooled correctly, careful consideration to packaging, the list can go on. Since Revell is the only major model car manufacturer that has been releasing any new tooling as of late, (Round 2 is still restoring the old toolings...thankfully!) they (Revell) need to re-group and discuss their business practices if they want to be competitive. If Moebius keeps on the same path they are on, I can only see success in their future. Revell, seems to be run by the "bean counters". It's a stated fact that the last major automobile manufacture that did business in that form was General Motors. Look what almost happened to them( :unsure: and is currently with the ignition lock recalls). By the way, thanks Moebius. I'm buying most of your factory stock kits simply because you are the new (and needed) trendsetters of this hobby. Fury3


In Topic: '66 Chrysler 300

Looking forward to your build of this beautiful Chrysler. It's also nice to see someone other than Ron Hamilton doing it...He seems to have just about every scarce kit around, just ask him, LOL. Don't be offended or surprised if he posts a photo(s) of his own 66 300 build. No offense meant, Ron. The color scheme you are doing was indeed available from the factory, so go for it! Fury3

In Topic: 1963 Dodge Dart GT ?

The last year for the push button Torqueflite transmission was 1964. All 1965 Torqueflite built passenger cars used either a column mounted shift lever, or a console mounted shift lever.....both connected to the transmission via two cables. Starting in 1966 they adopted  the familiar linkage connections.  :) Fury3
