    It's actually a '66 Delta 88 with Buick wheels. What I was referring to was the accessory sidepipes...

    ...and this poor ol' Beaumont looks like it lost a rear wheel and ended up in the rhubarb...

    This very nice black nova passed me the other day, something big rumbling through those dual pipes...

    ...and saw this one, right out of the '70s, at a recent airshow

  5. mk11 added a post in a topic Moebius Ford pickups....need a stepside bed   

    The flat top sides started with the '77 trucks. Ford used the same style and width flare top beds from 53-72. In 76, after a three year break, they reinstituted the short flareside box, but it was wider (just a shortened eight foot flareside box) to match the new rear axle width brought out in 73. The sides proved too tall with the flare so they flattened them for the 77 and later trucks.
    You basically have your choice of four boxes: the 1/25 mpc and amt '53s, the 1/25 revell '56 or the 1/24 monogram '55.

    True, but unnecessary cruel and derogatory remarks are the common denominator and you brought up the Golden Rule.

    A picture was posted with a legitimate question in a thread that soon descended into a negative dogpile with some throwing major contempt upon someone's build because, according to their rule book , it was just wrong.  Maybe knuckledragger wasn't mentioned but may as well have been.
    Goody for you too.  People are going to build what they build and most aren't looking for that pat on the back for scale or 1:1 fidelity anyway; they're building what works for them. 
    I look up to you Bill, as I know you care about being a dependable source of accurate information and help on the board. All I'm basically saying here is that nasty negative remarks, by anyone, whether about 1:1 or scale efforts, are a slow poisonous drag on the board and collective membership herein. By all means make critiques and be constructive but make an even application of the Rule.

    Maybe that golden rule thingy could be applied in other ways as well...
    a while back, panties were knotted over unmatching spark plug wires and snide comments were made about the 'knuckle draggers and mouthbreathers' who apparently couldn't divine Unwritten Rules of Rodding like the absolute necessity of peeling stickers off carburetors. If the owner of the '34 Plymouth coupe running a sbc with adapted FireFlite valve covers knew his efforts fell under the label of 'poseur' in someone's all-knowing lexicon, he would just laugh.  Sometimes negative commentary can reveal more about the commentator than he realizes...
