  1. Yea I do remember it. This all reminds me, that I need to finish my Lindberg version one of these days.
  2. The above is not a Revell kit. Originally IMC, later Lindberg.
  3. Even with the criticism others are giving this kit, I have one on order, and am looking forward to getting it. True, I could go to Indy Decals to make a more accurate version of this car. But, I like what comes in the box. And in general with what is included, it will look close enough to the real thing for me in the end. Plus, I look at this as partially a nostalgia thing. In the sixty’s when this kit originally came out was pretty cool, and built into a fairly good looking rendition of the Gurney’s real car. In the 2020’s, it could be done with more accuracy. But, that’s not necessarily what I’m looking, or expecting from this kit.
  4. Thank you for your kind comments gentlemen.
  5. I’ve just started building mine. From what I’m seeing, I think AMT’s Meyers’ Manx is a better kit. But I still I’m looking forward to building mine. And I hope it turns half as good as yours.
  6. I love ‘em. The I see, the more I want one. Again, it so bad it’s kool.
  7. Obviously there was a problem with my last posting. I got a message it wasn’t posting. So I kept trying without knowing what was going on. Hopefully one the editors of this site will fix that.
  8. The more I see of this car, the more I like it. It’s just totally wrong in so many ways. But, that’s what makes it right. The outhouse door for the front bumper. The strange decals. The wheelbase that does not fit. The missing stock chrome. Who would want one? Me for some odd reason? I real doubt this our mystery car. “The Rumor Mill” kit. But, I wish it was. In my opinion it’s better than many of the other choices I’ve seen listed here.
  9. Yes it is! 👍 That I don’t mind. In fact it hits my warped sense of humor perfectly. 😝
  10. Please say “NO” to the smiley face on the differential! 😝
  11. The above is the Fujimi kit I have. In my opinion the Gulf 917Ks are still the prettiest versions of the car. Between Steve McQueen’s movie, and Aurora’s sloth cars I’ve been madly in love with these cars ever since. The other 917 I like is the 917-10 Cam-Am version in RC markings. Again influenced by a Aurora slot car. To satisfy my desire for a scale replica of that car, I have AMT’s (originally Matchbox?) 1/32 scale 917-10 kit. And aftermarket RC Cola decals for the kit. One of these days, i need to finish the two kits.
  12. Thank you gentlemen. Your all very kind. I appreciate it.
  13. Thank you. And that is “stock” height, which is another one of the things I did not like about the kit.
  14. Wow! A stunning build. Very nice.
  15. I know too from experience, this kit can be a bit of a pain to build. But, you sure did a good job building yours. Very nice.
  16. It looks great. I especially like the color.
  17. Here it is, my build of Moebuis Models 1965 Mercury Comet Cyclone. Over the years I purchased maybe a dozen of Moebuis’ car and truck kits. Plus other science fiction and figure kits they’ve put out. I’ve been pretty happy with their sci-fi and figure kits I’ve built. Their car and truck kits, not as much. Even though my Moebuis Cyclone turned out okay. Their were several things I was not happy with. Mainly the manner in which the front grille, and front and rear bumpers are mounted. I ended up do some minor damage to a fairly nice paint job, installing both the front grille and rear bumper. There is no real positive mounting provision for the front grille. And the stubs for mounting the front and rear bumpers are a total pain to use. And I question how they will hold on to the bumpers in the long run. Plus, Moebuis is fairly famous for their accuracy, yet they missed a minor thing like the standard dash mounted tachometer that the ‘65 Cyclones came with. Or the optional three gauge group that could take the place of the standard tach. Minor. And maybe a little picky on my part. But, I’m just not as impressed with Moebuis’ car and truck kits as other are out their. Despite my complaints, I like the choice of car and truck kits Moebuis keep bring to us. So, I’ll keep buying them. I’m just not so sure how quick I’ll be in building them.
