    1/25 # Decal wanted
    I am looking to trade for one of the larger, #58 decals that are found on the 1/25 Round-2 reissue of the Buick Opel, (can be built as factory-stock, as a street-machine or as a drag car).  This kit was reissued a few short years ago; anybody have one that you've built and didn't use the larger #58 decals?  The decal that I'm looking for is shown at the lower, right in the photo below.  Thanks.

    Wow!  This build is "wicked' looking, and really well done!

    Nicely done in a great paint color!  I've always liked these MPC Corvette kits too, and happen to be in-the-middle of a build of this exact same kit!  After seeing your excellent build, maybe I'll be motivated to finish mine up!

    I'm assuming the "70 Monte Carlo reissue will be based on the 1/25 kit AMT/Ertl newly-tooled back in the mid-1990's or so, correct?  (It won't be based on a reissue of the much older, early-1970's Monte Carlo kit that was transformed into the Super Stocker dirt-track race car).

    Thanks Carl; I really appreciate this!  I'll PM you with my address info, (although, I'd bet you've already got it)!

    Still searching for these decals; anybody got 'em?

    Does anybody have a date for when this 1/25 AMT Scirocco kit might be reissued and available to purchase?

    Mr. Mopar,
    Yes, just the "C" stripe in either color.  (I thought "C" stripe was a Ford Mustang term; didn't wanna offend any Mopar experts)!  LOL

    1/25 1970 Dodge Super Bee decals wanted
    I am looking to trade for the two, 1/25 AMT 1970 Dodge Coronet Super Bee Pro Street decals that cover the rear quarter panels on the sides of the body.  (These decals wrap-around into top-and-bottom stripes that run forward towards the doors on the body, and they have the forward-facing Super Bee cartoon character encircled at the rear of the decal's panels).
    I know these decals can be found on the 1/25 AMT Super Bee Pro Street decal sheet in both Black and White colors.  I'd prefer the White ones, but don't really care as either color can work on my Super Bee's still-unpainted body.
    I have a fairly-extensive parts/decals box to trade from.  Thanks!

    Beautiful and nicely-detailed build! Your paint and decal-work really pop; nicely done!

    1/25 Revell '32 Ford wheels and tires wanted
    I am looking to trade for the (4) 1/25 Goodyear tires and 5-spoke, chrome mag and inner-wheels found inside the Revell 1932 Ford 3-window Coupe Street Rod kit(s). The original 3-window coupe kit Revell issued with these tires and wheels was kit #85-7605, and showed a 1:1 Black car on the box art. These tires and wheels have appeared in several reissues of this kit, including reissues that could be built as a 5-window Coupe, and also a '32 Sedan.

    I would prefer these to be fresh-from-the-tree, or from a built-up if they are in good, reuseable condition. I have a fairly-extensive parts box to trade from. Thanks!

    Beautiful builds! Your paint and detail-work are outstanding! I guess I have never seen a '48 and '49 Ford parked next to each other; I was a little surprised that the '48 appears overall slightly smaller in size than the '49. I have always thought those full-fendered cars "appeared" larger in size than the more modern and "slimmer-appearing" cars of the late-1940's and early-1950's.

    My guess; cost savings. Probably easier and more cost-effective to delete than to revise. No real approval-process, (which translates into "time" and "money"), necessary with making a deletion. More time, reviews and approvals required with making a revision; hence more cost.

    Carl,
    I might have the injector manifold and stacks. Do you want them to fit any particular Ford engine? (302, 427 or 429, or something else?)
  15. '70 Grande added a post in a topic Busch Grand National Series   

    All excellent looking builds! And, now a quick question for you. Back in the late-1980's-mid-1990's when the Busch Series race cars were limited to using V-6 engines, I've always wondered approximately how many cubic inches those V-6 engines were... any idea?
