  1. Are these the same kit?

    Except for the snowmobile in the Ice Patrol kit, these two are the same. The Honcho is molded in black plastic and the Ice Patrol is molded in white plastic.
  2. I wish I knew the story regarding this one

    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. A.J.
  3. 1960 Ford Pickup Chassis Swap?

    For what it is worth, Don Holthaus recommended using the AMT 1953 Ford F100 for their '57/'58/'60 cab conversions if you didn't buy a complete kit. For a short box pickup, if works perfectly. A.J.
  4. AC Mack Tractor Trailer

    Very neatly done. A.J.
  5. Revell 69 Hemi Charger in Sub Lime green

    One word: NICE. A.J.
  6. gtx

    Awesome build. A.J.
  7. 1968 Dodge Dart GSS (Mr. Norm)

    My high school calculus teacher had one of theses in a forest green color with the black vinyl top, black stripe, and black vinyl interior. Beautiful build.
  8. The attached image is from Tim Boyd's review of the new kit. I have attached a cropped image of the chrome tree showing the gas cap just to the lower right of the grille which is where it has been for a number of decades since the old MPC days. .
  9. Here are the images taken by Tim Boyd of the kits mentioned above.
  10. Well in chatting with Dave Metzger at the Warren show, he said that the 1965/66 4X4 Ford LWB F100 on display in built up form would likely not come out until 2021, and the Chevy, if it ever comes out, would be after that. Of the others on display, the 1965/66 Ford F100 SWB stepside pickup in on the boat, and should hit the US sometime later this month, with the Model Ling utility box version about a month or two after that. The 1965/66 SWB and LWB F100 standard bed kits will be out sometime in 2020. He also said that they were placing another order to build another batch of the 1969 Ford F100 4X4's that beat their expectations and sold out within weeks, and these should be available around the late summer.
  11. Moebius Trailers

    That's what I overheard Dave tell someone else asking that same question at the show.
  12. Here's my version that was a replica of the cpompany car I had at the time.
  13. I made my own using some Evergreen plastic strips and headlamps from an MPC Dodge Omni 2 dr. Here's what it looks like in my MSP Tahoe.
  14. The future of offroading?

    One other thing to keep in mind is that the batteries are HEAVY, so where you go off-roading would be important as well. When I was working for Chrysler, we had developed several hybrid and all electric vehicles. The amount of torque from electric motors is unbelievable, so much so that we used torque-limiting software in the control modules. Disable the software, and you'd smoke the tires on even moderate throttle acceleration, which would get you all sorts of stares when driving an electric mini-van.
  15. Here's one I build when it first came out. Nice kit. FYI - Those wheels can used used for Chevrolet police wheels if you leave the center hub chrome, but paint the rest of the wheel semi-gloss black like I did on the MSP Tahoe. A.J.
