      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    Were the 1:1 versions of these ever raced in events like the Baja Mexican Road Race?  Or did they stop running the Baja Mexican Road Race before these Jeeps could have participated?

    Nice build!  Vinyl top work looks pretty darn good to my eyes; paintwork looks excellent too!  I'm in-progress on this same kit... mind if I steal that vinyl top idea and use it on my build?  It really looks like an excellent solution and I hadn't considered a vinyl top on my Superbee until I saw yours!

    I had a built-up of one of these engines, (or should I say two of these engines as they are that unique double-4-cylinder motor set-up).  My point is, I have a bag of all of the blower and intake pieces down to the intake manifold.  Its far from a complete two-engine set-up, but its a good chunk of the unusual parts.  PM me if you're interested.

    I'm thinking a reissue of the AMT 1965 Oldsmobile Cutlass F85 or 442 would be a good choice... would love to see this one return to the hobby store shelves!

    Welcome to the forum!  Both of your Chrysler builds look very well done!  I really like this '55 in particular!  Well done; keep posting!

    Alix,
    I PM'd you last night on this Revell '66 Impala kit.  Check your PM's and let me know your thoughts.

    Let me do some digging tonite; I know I have several of the originally-issued AMT '65 to '68 Mustang hoods in a parts box, but I think most of them have had the hole for a scoop opened-up.  I'll PM you in a couple of hours.

    PM'd on the Nitro Charger.

    Nice concept and excellent execution!  It looks like you really pulled-off the tailgate- conversion/integration too; sure would like to see a straight-on, rear-shot of it to see better how that tailgate looks!
  11. '70 Grande added a post in a topic 1966 Fairlane AWB   

    I'll certainly be following this build as it progresses; you're off to a great start!
  12. '70 Grande added a post in a topic 1962 Chevy   

    Nice build!  Has the "look"!  Sure would like to see some more pics of the interior, chassis and underhood areas!  Its gonna need some license plates before you can take it out onto Main Street, too!
  13. '70 Grande added a post in a topic 66 Riviera   

    Beautiful build!  Your underhood detailing looks excellent!  I have always thought this kit was overlooked by many builders; the execution by AMT/Ertl/Round-2?, (whoever AMT was working with in producing it back then), was stellar; it has excellent details, mold-quality and goes together well, and looks like the 1:1, too!
  14. '70 Grande added a post in a topic 1944 Ford GPW Jeep FINISHED!   

    Beautiful, (maybe that's not the best word-choice here)... how about "outstanding" build!  Everything looks spot-on!  I wonder if nearly everything in that River Rouge assembly plant turned OD Green from all that overspray during the war years!!??!!
  15. '70 Grande added a post in a topic Wanted - WINGS   

    HO,
    Are you referring to the "custom" Daytona/Superbird-style wing that came inside the 1/25 MPC '71 Plymouth Roadrunner kit as a "custom" add-on, (like the Daytona/Superbird-style nose piece that was also found inside that kit)?  If so, i might have those wing pieces; let me check my parts box.
