    I sure would like to get this upcoming reissued kit and build it as a Super Coupe, but I think that would turn into a fairly-major conversion project.  From what I can tell, I'd need to replace the front bumper/grill/headlights piece for certain, and probably many of the interior pieces.  Weren't the 1:1 Super Coupes only built in the 1978 model-year?  Any Mopar experts out there that provide some insights as to what'd need to be done to this upcoming reissue for conversion into a decent Super Coupe replica model?

    Wow!  I think that's all I can say... "WOW!"

    Really, really nice!  Your paint and detail work is exceptional!  It's not hard to imagine this as a 1:1 sitting at the Christmas Tree, waiting to launch!

    Wow!  Everything about this build is first-rate!  I'm looking forward to seeing it cross the finish-line!

    In my opinion, the best-looking automotive design of the 1960's!  The first Rivs were the finest of the decade, and the top-chop also suits it well!  Nice job!

    Very, very nice!  Everything about this build is spot-on!  Your excellent craftsmanship shows, too; well done!

    I'm still searching for these "holy-grail" 1/24 McLaren Elva rear wheels for a long-term project that I've had going; anybody have a pair of these rear wheels?

    I was thinking 1/25 Revell '68 Hemi Dodge Dart kit.

    Matt,
    Yes, it was you that sent those 3 to me; thanks again!  Originally, I thought I'd be using them on a 4-cylinder engine, and would only need two of them.  But, my build-plans changed and now I'll be using them on an 8-cylinder engine, hence, my need for one more.

    A beautiful build of an awesome subject!  What scale is this little monster?
  11. '70 Grande added a post in a topic Ford GT/110 (X 1) now with pics!!   

    Lovely builds, both of them!  Just by looking at each, I can "sense" the challenges faced when building each one.  On the X-1, did you also use the intake manifold from the GS Corvette kit?

    1/24 Weber side-draft carb wanted
    I am looking to trade for (1), 1/24 Weber side-draft carb as shown in the photo below.  I believe these particular side-draft Weber carbs might have come from a 1/24 Fujimi tools kit, but I'm not sure of that.  They are fairly-small in overall size.

    Beautiful build!  Just like I remember them from back-in-the-day!  More bonus points for cleanly removing the large bumper guards from both the front and rear bumpers; I think that modification greatly-improves the overall look of these Chevelles!

    Here are two more photos that focus-in on the front tires that I'm looking to trade for.

    '49 Ford front tires and engine block wanted
    I recently received an older issue of the 1/25 AMT 1949 Ford kit, (as shown in the photo below).  This kit is a few years old, not the recent reissue.  I am looking to trade for the (2) wide, Street-Rod front tires found inside this kit.  These front tires do not have lettering on them, (although the (2), two-piece rear tires do have Goodyear Polyglas GT L60-15 lettering on them).  The next photo below shows the tire's tree; the front tire on this tree is nearest to the center of the photo.
    The (2) front tires that I am looking for are solid tires, (not hollow).  They have a relatively narrow sidewall, and a nice tread-pattern that is somewhat rounded in-shape around the whole tire. 
    These front tires that I am seeking can be fresh-from-the-tree, or from a built-up if they are in good condition.  If the recent reissue of this kit has these same front tires in it, those would work great, too.
    I am also looking to trade for the (2) optional-engine Cadillac V8 engine block halves from this same kit.  These Cadillac engine block pieces can also be fresh-from-the-tree or from a built-up. 
    I have a fairly extensive parts box to trade from.  Thanks!
