    Unusual suspension choice,but I guess it's a good one. I envisioned something more high tech . Are you going with a  front engine?

    Nice!  I bought a project Big Deuce from fkeabay a few years back. I was amazed at how big it is,even though I had other 1/8th kits.

    Another red Corvette
    Here's another of my acrylic  paintings. This was a commission,so I don't have the original.
    I really liked the reflections in this one.

  6. pharoah added a post in a topic Mad Max Interceptor kit (or parts) wanted!!   

    There was a site that had very detailed papercraft versions. They had the cars from Mad Max and the one from The Road Warrior. they even had display bases. I think they were a little smaller than 1'25th. I know each wheel and tire had 6 or 7 pieces to it. But they were free. Download the PDF file and print. A sharp X-Acto knife and a steady hand are needed.

    I'm not an expert,but as far as I know - yes they did have gold mesh grille,gold 'V' on the hood and trunk and gold 'louvers' near the headlights. 
    As for painting,you might try Tamiya gold,and the a black wash to fill in the openings. Good luck. I'm sure others will chime in on this.

    It seems like factory speca are not always carved in stone.
    David,I wonder if there was a parts 'overlap; when changing from one year to the next.I doubt if they worried about engine parts matching exactly. Most people never opened the hood.  They would have used leftover parts from the  previous (or the next)  year .Just my .02.  Thanks

    Flathead paint color
    What is the proper color for a 1949 Ford car flathead V8?  Is the air cleaner black?
    Thanks

    That's true,it was aimed at a lot of us here. lol
    They would have had to retool the entire body,interior tub, and front end,too.

    I've noticed the complaints about the  flipnose Datsun.I have no idea why MPC did it that way. it's like they never looked at a real truck. You can't have the hood open righ in fromt of the windshield,that's where the back of the dash and the wipers are. Here is a picture of a real Datsun I did in the early 80's. It had been hit in the right front. The fender have to cut because they would hit the doors when you raised the front.I got the idea from Truckin' magazine. I should build a model of this.BTW,if any of you need some detail shots,let me know. I have lots of them,and the kit has a lot of errors.

    LOL  I know. In their brochure ,they show a Torino on the hook. I imagine it did a wheelie every time they started. It was more a novelty than anything. There was one for sale on Ebay about 4 years ago for $4500.

    Here's another variation of a Datsun  for the ambitious modeler.
    These were actually available in the 70's.
