  1. Seems to me someone had a corrected resin boot for these but I can't find the pic. Great looking project, Mr G! Getting me closer to digging out and finishing my '70 johan 'bird to R/R conversion
  2. Good to know... the unfortunate 'meh' attitude toward accuracy in this series of kits is disappointing. At least those who aren't salivating for another utility truck box know there's no real reason to spring for this issue as the aftermarket parts can be applied to any meob F100.
  3. Looks a little better but they didn't dish the headlight reflector. They'll look like the monogram 65 Mustang headlights For my money, the rookie resin piece still wins Thanks Rob... would you perchance have a pic of the dash and door panel ?
  4. It's possible you're thinking of the '80-up beams here. The dentside beams with disc brakes are a very popular and common swap on the slick and bump trucks. I've done a couple of transplants myself.
  5. Details are great but at the expense of body envelope accuracy... not so much Not sure I'm smellin' what you're cookin' here, Roger. Having owned multiples of the slick, bump and dent 1:1 trucks, I've found that aside from earlier (pre '73) rear frame rail width and slight wheelbase differences, the cab floors, mounts and front frame rails are very close to identical from '65-'79.
  6. The problem actually seems to be rooted in the front fender shaping of the 1/10 master for the Revell '70, which was issued in 1/24. The body design was rescaled to 1/25 for the '69 kit; obviously the flaw wasn't seen for what it was until the '69 headlight parts were applied.
  7. Not yet... Talked to him the other night and watched him jump climb in; grabs door and seat, braces left foot on tire and heaves himself up Reminded me of an old Dodge I saw in a parade- with front and back steering axles, he had it crabbing down the road. Jumped out and just stepped on a cleat to lift himself back up to the cab. Wish I had a pic.
  8. That looks great Steve. I've always preferred the '68 design over the one-piece '69 headlight doors. Interesting note on the '68 h/doors; the Beaumont parts were chromed castings vs the chevelle's stamped anodized aluminum parts.
  9. Yessir Thanks! ... kinda thinkin' these might deserve a home on some kind of pontiac panel; either a conversion of the revell '53/'54 or maybe a '65 chevelle resin delivery with a gto front clip... hmmmm
  10. While we're playing around here, does anyone remember where this one came from? Definitely amt... area above 'lighting bird' sez 'tuned by the medicine man'
  11. The monogram monkees mustang also had the '83-'85 drivetrain in the updated '87 body shell... http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/88095-monkees-87-mustang-gt-50-monogram-124-ragtop/
