      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

    I really like the looks of that JF body and if you want to do weathered wood go back to June of 2014 on this site and look for a post by bplecher55 (how to make plastic look like weathered wood).  I think it is a a great  how-to.

    Thanks for the replies. The work you guys posted is great. I was also trying to do Beswik's car and that's why I was looking for that article. I thought I rembered he said what colors he used.  Thanks again for your replies.

    painting the tri-color interior of a '62 Pontiac
    I think I remember an article in one of the model magazines about painting the tri-color interior of the '62 Pontiac.  I'm sure I have that magazine but it would take me a week or two to find it and I would probably be distracted by another article along the way. Could anyone point me to which magazine and which issue had this article, ( if I'm not making it up in my head).  THA

    Replicas & Miniatures of Maryland has a small block Ford duel four barrel carbs, intake, and air cleaners for $6.95 ( in their 2014 catalog). I've used one but I can't say that it looks exactly like that one.

    What's up with the December issue of M C
    Forgive me if this has been brought up before. I got the Dec. issue of Model Cars at my lhs yesterday and there were three different places with overprinting on the pages. It looks like printed two different pages on the same page. Most of the words can be read it you try hard but there were some places where the overlap was just too dense. I only checked two magazines so I don't know if they were all like that. I wonder if they will make good on the bad ones.

    fuel pump on Revell's SB Ford
    I'm building another Revell '32 roadster and I'm using Rep & Min's duel 4 barrel induction. I'd like to put fuel lines on it but it doesn't have a fuel pump that I can see. Am I missing something or does it not have any? I checked round 2's '67 mustang and the 289 has a nice looking pump on the front cover, would the 302 in the roadster be the same? TIA

    fuel pump for Revell's small block Ford
    I'm building another '32 roadster and I would like to plumb it a little bit. I don't see a fuel pump on the small block Ford. Would the 289 in the '67 Mustang look like the 302 in the kit? I'm using the duel 4-barrel set-up from Rep & Min. if it makes any difference.

  11. jeba added a post in a topic question about the Ford car-hauler cab   

    Can anyone confirm that the frame is longer on the C-600 city delivery than is on the stake truck?
  12. jeba added a post in a topic which kits would I use for the '69/70 Ford drag team.   

    Yes Casey, that's the picture that got me started. I've got the trailer and the mustang and the torino. '69 was the only year that Car magazine gave their high proformance award to a team instead of a single car and the C-850 (according to the article) was included in the award. I'm not a contest builder but I like to get things close to what is right. Things like the headers and wheels paint and decals. Also the recently reisued C-600 city delivery truck must have a longer frame than the stake truck because Tim A said that with just a litle repositioning of things like the fuel tanks and widening of the hauler body to fit over the frame, it should be real close. The artical that I read also said that they used '69 BOSS side stripes. So, as I collect parts and information I feel that I'm getting closer to a start.

    Thanks A C. I was afraid that would be the answer because I sold my AMT Torino and kept my Revell '70 Torino. I also have the Revell '69 Super CJ Mustang, is that the same as the Mach I ?

    which kits would I use for the '69/70 Ford drag team.
    I'm, considering replicating the '69/70 Ford drag team with the Ford car hauler. Which kits would require the least modification and/or kit bashing for the cars. I'm sure some of you will say that the hauler was made with the Ford C cab and you would be right. I have the sleeper cab by Hendricks and Tim's great information in the MC magazine.

    I want to thank all of you for the effort you put into this for me. I have the Budweiser decals for this and I thought that a hi-dollor sponsor would opt for this but after looking at the Ford drag team haulers, I see that they didn't have them. So I might just leave it off of this build. I'm also going to do a C-cab hauler with an after-market hauler body. With the great pictures Aaron got, I think I'll just have to put it on that one.
