  1. Great build! Curiously enough, if you put that address into Google Maps there is a rollback there haha...
  2. Actually the decals came from the goofy MPC 72 Chevy ramp truck with the dual tandem axles...
  3. Thanks. Yea the cab, hood, and all of the ramp bed parts were very warped. I had to use a lot of super glue and clamps to get it to fit correctly.
  4. At $80 I will have to pass on this one. I've got a stack to keep me busy though.
  5. I'd estimate that 60% of mine was warped. Cab, hood, all ramp parts, chassis. I got it this far with gallons of super glue and a few strategically placed clamps.
  6. Hood and body are both warped, but so have every Moebius Ford I have bought. These are more easily fixed with a bit of hot running water.
  7. I believe literally every person (that I have seen) that has posted theirs had warped parts in the box.
  8. Here are a few pics of the new Moebius/Model King F350 Ramp Truck. Not a great kit at all. Almost every large piece is warped. I should have asked for a refund but I stuck to it and have somehow gotten this far. It will build up ok but definitely not Moebius quality...
  9. I wonder if it would be viable to do the chassis in 2 or 3 pieces with pins and holes to mount them together? Would that mitigate some of the warping?
  10. Yes, everything you see in the photos came in the box.
  11. Here is my take on the Chevy II Gasser....build was fairly straightforward....door handles bust way too easily, hope you have spares. Suspension setups are fairly fiddly, take your time and it will be fine. Blower is too big, or engine is too small. Taillight and reverse light assemblies are not easy to install...but I am half blind so that is no surprise. Not a period correct gasser but should pass as a replica or show 'n go weekend racer. All in all, great kit.
  12. Looks good. Mine should be done tomorrow. I posted pics in the WIP Drag Racing section.
  13. Pretty great kit so far....should be done tomorrow.
  14. Gran Turismo Sport has an even better photo mode...
  15. Anyone remember the '68 Roadrunner fiasco from a few years ago? AMT packaged a bone stock Roadrunner in the Pro Street labeled boxes....luckily my Hobbytown owner knew this and I didn't waste my time or money on it.
  16. I tried making this one look like it was built in the 50's or 60's....hope I did it right...still need to black wash the grill.
  17. Ah ok. AMT. Threw me off when you said Revell was sending you parts lol.
  18. Thanks guys. I used Minwax polyurethane clear over One Coat Laquer....
