  1. Roger, check the cross braces on the bottom of the bed. The one closest to the cab is slightly taller than the other ones, preventing it from fitting correctly.
  2. I cut them out using the original chassis, then I boxed them in the best I could
  3. The manifold came in the MPC southern stocker kit.
  4. What is this? Hi- jacking my thread with a picture of your model? What gall! This thread is about my model, not yours. I wish you had your picture packed away too, where the sun don’t shine!!
  5. Torino oval track racer. It’s built using everything in the box except the tires, I substituted some MPC tires instead. I added plug wires and some wire in another spot or two. It has Testors paint all through and decals by Fred Cady. This one took quite a bit of work to get it there but I like how it turned out.
  6. They are available at Hobbytown USA for the wonderful price of almost $40 each.
  7. The chassis came from the AMT 68 Roadrunner with the headers, pipes and fuel cell from the Lindberg Petty Plymouth.
  8. This one is a rebuild that I originally built in the 80’s. I replaced the engine with the big block Chevy from the Lindberg 66 Chevelle and added some cool parts from my parts box. The wheels are by JPS, I bought on eBay a while back. The paint is Dupli-Color medium Maui blue metallic and silver metallic with a bunch of clear and it polished up pretty nice. I figured out while I was building this one that I needed glasses. Dang it man!!
  9. Here’s the AMT 62 Corvette, I painted it with some Boyd’s Sunburst and clear then polished it with some Meguiar’s Scratch X 2.0. The wheels and tires are from a Revell Corvette snap-kit, and the engine is from the Revell 2000 Corvette convertible.
  10. Thanks John, I think the hood hinges came from the AMT 68 Roadrunner.
  11. This is another restoration of a kit I originally built in the late 80’s. Paint is Model Master Deep Pearlescent Purple polished with some Meguiar’s Scratch X 2.0. The wheels, tires and brakes are from the AMT 97 Corvette snap kit and the engine pieces came from an MPC 89 Z28. A fun and simple build.
  12. Here are a few photos of Bobby Allison’s 69 Dodge Charger. I started with the MPC 69 Charger 500 and used parts from a bunch of different kits to do this one, but I thought it went together pretty well. Dupli-Color paint and Yesterday’s decals were used to finish this one.
