  1. AMT 1960 Starliner reissue headers?

    OK, I've only built the stock version. Did not know they came in the custom version. Good to know.
  2. AMT 1960 Starliner reissue headers?

    Why would it have 427 headers?

    Well, it's not an independent rear. It's a leaf sprung live axle with traction bars, staggered shocks and what appears to be a Watts link on the back. The linkage is wrong, because the left side should attach to a mount above the axle near the spring perch, not on the axle, the right side should attach to a mount below the axle near the spring perch and their would be a traversing cross brace for the center propeller to mount to.

    I love this little diecast. You did a great job of foiling the trim and the wheels look bitchin'. I don't think it looks too bad for a $12 diecast. I bought one in 2016 and painted the interior, chassis, and under the hood to try to take away the toyish appearance.
  5. Perfect modelling day.

    Kind of like how my day started at -9 with a wind chill of -42. The warmest it got with the wind chill was -13 while defueling and sumping an airplane outside. Thanks Bombardier @ Downsview. I love visiting Canada.
  6. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Interesting ride! What is this? Type 3 Karmann Ghia
  7. Karmann Ghia advice

    I've had some success with using a machinist scale (ruler) and a fresh blade to cut narrow width strips of foil the size of the trim, long enough to lay past the area to be foiled. Then I stretch it gently to keep it straight and lay it on the trim. Slowly burnish it, careful not to move the foil around and it usually works.
  8. A 1972 what??

    OMG, they're 292 Y-blocks!

    In 1/24 scale, Franklin Mint made four coupes in black, Honolulu blue, Dubonnet red, and Starmist white. They made one convertible in teal and in 1/43 scale they made a black coupe. The black coupes are the most common and can be found on eBay in pretty good shape for less than $50.

    They could be releasing the Polar Lights Ford GT. They were essentially snap together and it had an engine.

    Someone found what was left of that Ghia and is planning to restore it. It is one rusty heap now. https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?p=8242245

    Looks great. I Like the custom front end. I never could understand why AMT didn't include the lower valence on the chrome tree. I have a couple of these kits and I'm still not sure how I'm going to achieve a happy chrome. I'm never impressed with the Alclad look. It always looks like black chrome to me. I might try my wide Molotow pin and see how that works out.

    Let's hope you never get hit by a modern two ton plus mid size car. It will squash you like a bug.
