    One of our local thrift stores now puts the nicest donated items, kits and diecasts in a showcase and runs two-week auctions where you enter your bid on a sheet corresponding with the number on the item. Sometimes there's good money made for them this way.

    In regards to that fragility, why not just attach a thin sheet of plastic behind the grill bars for strength? The modeller then has the choice of painting between the bars or gently sanding the backing off.

    Please don't allow minor details like 'pillow block bearings' to take time/resources away from the really important details like roof, window and sheet metal proportions...

    Everyone clearcoats. Go your own way
    ...and maybe accent the spokes?

    Didn't Palmer also copy the AMT '70 Mustang? Probably one of their best kits.
     The moeb '65 Comet chassis/engine bay are modified AMT '66 Fairlane/Comet pieces.
    This also kind of brings up a point: if you know you might have to take flak for copying, why not make sure you're getting the most accurate pieces instead of 'good enough'. Why re-issue past mistakes? Kind of puts credibility at stake.

    If he branched out to Golden. he could have had this one in late june. Someone flopped it into the westbound lanes on the last of the curves east of town...

  14. mk11 added a post in a topic '69 Mustangs....   

    Just thought I'd show a couple of interesting parts found in the mpc/amt '69 kit... a rally pac and an a/c bezel.

    These are obviously left over from earlier incarnations of the mpc mustang as they are definitely not factory issue on the '69, just the '65/'66.
