  1. Being 16 years of my early adult years was spent in the plastics molding process and tool making. I can spot the areas of the tool AKA the master that was repaired. Doesn't make it any less... I was simply pointing out if anyone actually cares. "Comparing Apples to oranges"... Fact it doesn't matter either way, Its a breath of fresh air to see some thing off the norm for a build subject and no matter what minor "tool marks" I described . The production is appreciated.
  2. After noticing many are using the 66 Nova Pro street for a chassis, I opened an "old" Millennium edition of the AMT 66 Nova 2n1 kit. . Simply for the intent of a far more detailed chassis and other factory stock components. For a factory stock build option. Just as the pro street chassis fitting with a trim here & there The "stock" version which was re-popped recently will also fit with some work. Fire wall would need trimming if a different firewall was wanted. I didn't test fit any other stock 66 . A difference in the "hump is evident, the 66 has a more profound tunnel hump (for better choice of words) Personally fitting a 235 and a power glide in the existing kit would make a fun build with a little extra pizazz. After close inspection of 2 of the same wagon kits one can see the repaired areas in the tool or the body plug used to make the tool on the body itself. Some minor injection pin marks that need attention also but what the hey, This is what modeling is all about! is the greatest re-pop? No... However the material to work with provides an excellent base material for the advanced modeler or the novice for a quick weekend build. One thing I did test is the 283 from the Older AMT 57 Chevy kit. It fits easily in the existing 63 nova wagon engine compartment. A use for those multiples of AMT 57 Chevy kits collecting dust? Just a thought. Any way its good to be back on the forum and happy modeling !
  3. Like I said, A great group of Modelers Thanks again

  6. Hey there, after a long hiatus wasting time on face book I deleted my F.B. account and life is far better! I spent a lot of time in those groups and met up with a lot of great modelers but sadly managed to set this forum aside . After lots of concern about privacy issues of social media I decided to ditch F.B and return to Model cars magazine forum! I miss having the hard copy of a freshly printed issue of M.C and my favorite beverage in a good read. But in the midst of the moment of my errors, I have finally opened my eyes and ears and returned. No drama here, Just plain old great modeling and great people! Thanks for having me back.
