In Topic: New kits with flaws.

Today, 05:47 PM

There's plenty of other issues, too, such as the 60 C-10 showing the old annual kit, the 68 Barracuda and 69 Charger Daytona showing rims that weren't in the kit, etc.

At the risk of straying off topic, what are checkerboard kits?

 

In the early '00s AMT sold kits through Walmart. There were a couple different box art styles that were exclusive to the store, one of them being individual kits that had a built-up model on the box top with a checkerboard background and a road graphic off to one side. The other style was built-up models with some sort of cityscape in the background; these were usually part of a 3- or 4-kit bundle.


In Topic: 77 gmc wrecker and gmc pick up kit bash

Keep in mind the GMC pickup is 1:24 scale and the wrecker is 1:25 scale. Cutting out the engine on the wrecker and transplanting one isn't too difficult, although what bugged me the most about the wrecker was the molded in windshield visor. I swapped the cab for one from the related Chevy pickup, like so:

This is a bit of an older picture as I have progressed on this build since then. I'll try to get some current shots soon.  B)


In Topic: White Interior Combinations

Here's some ideas to spice up interiors.. just imagine white instead of black on the last one.  These were 1980s cars, I don't even remember which ones, that I posted for someone many years ago!

 

My favourite white 80s interior that I have seen was in a Challenger (Mitsubishi based) that had white seats with blue plaid inserts! Dash and carpet were also blue. Looked pretty spiffy!

I really just need the box itself and the steps; I'll be using a set of 67-72 fenders on it. Just waiting to hear back from Gabriel; Matthew will be next in line if Gabriel can't find his kit in his stash (boy do I know what that can be like!).
