  1. Greg, Sorry to report that the 2007-issue of this kit that came out of my kit vault does NOT have the rear window louvers even in it! Sorry that I can't help you out on this one... anybody else got this piece for Greg? Mark
  2. Greg, I might have the Cuda's rear window louvers piece, but I won't be able to get into my kit vault until tomorrow to do some digging to find it... I'll PM you if/when I do.
  3. I holding CarBuilder1950 completely responsible for this post; his Phantom '69 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler build in the Under Glass section got me to thinking, so now I am looking to trade for the main body from any of the 1/25 AMT/Round2 or MPC 1970 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler Nascar kits, (body as shown below). I am only looking for the complete roof with door-frame-tops, C-pillars, rear window and trunk lid back to the rear of the body; other parts of the body can be junk... just need that roof/C-pillar/trunk lid to still be in good condition for a transplant project that David's build has inspired; thanks!
  4. Stunning conversion and finish-work on this build! Looks like something the Design Dept. at Lincoln/Mercury could have considered for the '71 model year! Now... I gotta ask; are we going to see a follow-up/vice-versa build transplanting that Mercury roof onto a '69 Ford Torino body??? (hint/hint... if not, send me that Mercury roof piece and maybe I'll give it a try)!
  5. I am looking to trade for 428 Air Cleaner piece from the 1/25 Revell 1968 Ford Mustang GT 2-N-1 kit, (from the kit as shown below)... can be fresh-from-the-tree or from a built-up if still in good condition. Have parts to trade; thanks!
  6. Agree... it's hard to tell that this is a scale model and not a 1:1! Fabulous work on this build!
  7. This vintage AMT kit has been one of my favorites ever since I was a kid. Yeah, it's got a lot of flaws, but once built always seems to look pretty good to my eyes. I think your build also looks really good. Haven't seen one built using those "Snakebite" decals in a long, long time and they look really good and bring back some memories... nice job on your Shelby!
  8. I am looking to trade for a junk body from any of the 1/25 AMT/Round2 1970 Chevrolet Camaro kits, (can be from any version of this kit; I have shown one of the most-popular-kit version box tops below). I am looking for it to have a good roof with front posts; the rest of the body doesn't matter. I have stuff to trade... thanks!
  9. I am looking to trade for all the pieces to the 1/25 AMT/Round2 1969 Mercury Cougar 428 Air Cleaner and also the Fan piece, (from the kit as shown below)... can be fresh-from-the-tree or from a built-up if still in good condition. Have parts to trade; thanks!
  10. I don't remember this car from back then, but it is certainly a stunning paint scheme that you have executed perfectly! Your super-clean paintwork replicates the car extremely-well in pre-race condition... it probably would've looked a "bit worse" in post-race condition with Michael behind the wheel!
  11. I'm anxiously waiting for this new kit, but my guess is that it is still in the early-development stage meaning there is nothing to show yet. Seems to me those pics of a 1:1 '71 Mustang, (Mach-1)?, that had reference points taped all over it for scanning and digital file preparation were from late-2020 or early-2021... I'd bet it'll be awhile before we hear or see anything about this new kit.
  12. The first word that immediately popped-into my head regarding this build was, "Handsome!" Not sure I can add to that... truly an awesome build of a "handsome" Mack!
  13. Agree with you there Tom, but there is a certain "nostalgia" factor that I get when working on one of these old Revell Tri-5's! ( I've currently got a '56 being converted into an old, beat-up late-1960's dirt track car).
  14. Love this build! Imagine it in the 1:1 world... you'd be able to hear it coming from a 1/2-mile away!
  15. I grew up in eastern Iowa in the 1960's/70's. Whenever Ramo visited our regional dirt track it was always a big deal and the grandstands would be full! I'm pretty certain he won every race I saw him in watching from those grandstands... an incredible driver.
  16. Really like this build; it replicates the 1:1 very well! I've always liked these Monza race cars; have my own freelanced build of one in-the-works... your great-looking build might inspire mine to find its way back onto the workbench!
  17. I am looking to trade for the 1/25 AMT/Round2 1969 Ford Torino Front Bumper/Grill piece plus the Rear Bumper/Tailight Panel piece as shown in the photo below. These pieces can be fresh-from-the-tree or from a built-up if still in good/useable condition. Please PM me with what you might be looking for in-trade... thanks!
  18. Excellent build! Curious what you can tell us about the paint colors you used on the body and interior, they look great!
  19. Great looking build! How did you get the headlights to look so realistic?
  20. I am looking to trade for the Passenger/Right-side Rollcage piece from the 1/25 AMT/Round2 '69 Ford Torino kit, (as shown in the photo below with the pink arrow pointed towards it)... it can be fresh-from-the-tree or from a built-up if in good, restoreable condition I have a fairly-extensive parts box to trade from. Thanks.
  21. Wow! That is really clean and crisp build! If a magic-gennie popped outta a bottle and told me I could have a 1:1 '67 GTX in any color combination that I wanted in my garage tonight, this would be the exact color scheme that I'd choose! Well done!
  22. Another example of a kit from the long-ago past that captures the look of the 1:1 extremely well! Your build looks terrific... just like back-in-the-day! I've got one in-process, might just pull it outta the kit vault and take it to the finish line after seeing your great build.
  23. Is it just me, or has this post "kinda gone-off-the-rails"!?!+!?
  24. Any idea how many vendors will be selling kits at the swap meet?
  25. Wow! Just looking at it, I can hear it's "rumble"!
