      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    It was also included in some of the Maverick kits. Missing Link has a version as well.

    Here's a visual to go along with that... first pic shows blue reissue of orange crate, revell tudor, amt tudor, mpc keep on truckin'/truckin'on down delivery and the mpc switchers tudor.

    That's what it looks like. Find one nice lens and you're set.

    Here's what another guy (can-con) was doing for lights on his dodge trucks, using a clear resin called 'easy cast'. I've seen it at michaels.

    If you like Diplomats, this might make you wince....  
  6. mk11 added a post in a topic Amt 64' ford body, glass and steering wheel   

    I've got an unbuilt modified stocker but can't remember if it came with an original wheel; might have a '63 wheel. Might be more work than you want, though, with those wheel openings to fix...

  7. mk11 added a post in a topic 1965 Mercury Comet Cyclone (update 2/20/17)   

    Great inspiration Steve. While Moebius did a fairly decent job of reworking the surface features of the adopted '66 comet chassis, they left the newer style tunnel (made for accommodating big blocks with C6 transmissions) alone. Like you say, it builds up just fine and few will notice the things a real Ford nut will want to tweak.
    Dave, the front subframe/suspension is a common design to all these cars based on the falcon platform and the amt '67 mustang chassis seems to have the best detailed parts. A builder can go either way and still have a good looking model with this kit.

  11. mk11 added a post in a topic Improving the Moebius 1965 Mercury Comet   

    The amt '67 mustang and recent revell sbf's are a great source for engine parts and even the amt front suspension pieces can be adapted for poseable steering. If you're really motivated towards accuracy, think about using the more accurate shock towers from the monogram 65/66 mustang or even the trumpeter falcon engine bay. The 1:1 falcon/comet and mustang shock towers were pretty much the same size and the main reason they sit higher in the mustang engine bay is because the mustang structure was basically a sectioned falcon.

    Me too... I've got to get at least two more for ideas that keep coming up

    Forgive me, Myron, but that first pic makes it look like that piece was installed backwards on the wrong side ...

    You're certainly correct regarding the trim levels, Dave, but I'm betting the chrome was added by the owner of that Caliente ragtop. Neither the ragtop nor the hardtop Caliente shown in my '65 Comet brochure show those pieces. The Cyclone pics are not drawn in a way to show them and there's no mention in the text. However, in my FoMoCo/Rotunda '65 collision parts guide, the trim drawings do show them only on the Cyclone.

    edit- I guess we know the brochures don't always tell the full story... found no Caliente hardtop pics with the extra chrome but a half dozen ragtops with it despite no reference in either the collision guide(printed may '65) or the brochure. 
    Most important line in the brochure- "Ford Motor Company reserves the right to change specifications or designs at any time without notice..."

    I'll add a trumpeter ranchero to the list of possible trading fodder...
