    It looks great, and I agree the nose cone is lighter in color. One question, what happened to the tail light panel? It looks like the lenses were installed from the outside and not from behind.

    What about the AMT (MPC) 1976 Plymouth Duster er Dodge Dart. You can even read Dodge on the front of the display model.

  6. THarrison351 added a post in a topic Any reviews of AMT 1965 Pontiac 2+2?   

    Wow, I built the 2+2 kit back in the 90's because it was an interesting looking kit. I had know idea the kit was wrong (no internet) Painted it bright yellow, which is probably wrong too. I wasn't a big Pontiac fan (still not), but it was an easy and fun build. I usually don't build for absolute accuracy, I just like to build.

    Some comparative pictures, there were 4 different versions of the box top for the Monogram Coors Thunderbird. Two Superspeedway and two Grand National. One Superspeedway has Melling on the box. There are three different pictures of Bill Elliott, one is shared on a Superspeedway and a Grand National box. I have all four in a box somewhere and only one is sealed and they are worth considerably less than what I paid for them. Also, there may be other tops, but these were the only ones I was aware of.

    I have the Sun Star 1956 Mercury Montclair Convertible in Persimmon and London Grey. It's Gorgeous and my favorite color combo

    It was built for static display. I could have built it to fly, but most builders opinions on this kit is it too heavy and flies poorly. So, in order not to accidentally wreck it, I chose to display the plane.

    Could they possibly make the side windows smaller? I don't like the style of new cars with the high window sills. I like to roll the windows down and rest my arm on the window sill. I'm tall and the armrests are way to low. And finally the new Mustangs (the lightest and still too heavy), Challengers and Camaros are all too big and heavy. The interior size is OK, but the rest is too big, 2 tons+ for a "sports car", sheesh!

    OK, it's done. Thanks to Guillow's forum, this turned out even better than I hoped. The tissue paper was a bit frustrating, but I read enough tutorials and followed the instructions, and things turned out OK. It's far from perfect, but I'm pretty happy.

    Between work, home repairs and weather, I finally painted and decaled it. It is only mocked up, I still need to cut the window openings, clear everything and final assembly. I'm very happy with the results.




    Thanks for the positive comments, almost there.

    In 1982 fresh out of Air Force basic training and tech school, I returned home for Christmas to find my dad had acquired a car for me (called from tech school for him to find me a car). For $500 he found a 1975 Ford Granada Ghia 4 door, 302 V-8, auto, PS, PB, am/fm stereo, white with aqua interior, vinyl top and trim. It was just under 100K miles, needed a new top and I loved it for about 3 years before I traded it and got a 1000 bucks toward a new red 1985 Ford Escort that I kept for 10 years.
