    I wonder if it will be the original or the new Ala Kart parts? Either way,I'd like to have it.

    Did the old MPC ' 64 to '67 Vettes have separate front bumpers? What about the Revell 67 coupe for a starting  point?
    Shag carpeting? Cool!  You might try a fabric store for something with a short nap. Maybe even a terrycloth wash cloth.or one of those 'microfiber cloths.

    Yeah .you don't want to be in a hurry when you order parts from them. Their parts are worth the wait.
    And if there's something wrong,they'll make it right. Great people.

    I placed an order Nov 18th and they charged my card for a $1 ,which is what they always do. I hope to be getting it soon. They don't make parts ahead of time ,so it takes a while.
    I never got that email.

    Good advice. I have plain Badgerr single action ,and it took a while to get used to it. That should be a nice set up you have there. I use the biggest needle size available for my brush. I use a cup all the time.I shoot enamels mostly . Even if I use paint from a rattle can,I still have to thin it. Get some white poster board and practice on that. Good luck!

    Yeah,compare an AMT mid 60's  Corvette with a Palmer version. Eww

    I like the truck and the garage!
  13. pharoah added a post in a topic work table   

    I  paint most of the really small parts while they are still on the sprue. I made a holder for bodies and bigger parts to be sprayed, from a piece of wood with four pieces of heavy wire coming up through the bottom. I buy thinners and stuff in quarts. I'm slowly getting away from Testor's paints and using Tamiya. Water clean up for the brush paints is great.  I too , have made wooden holders for my brushes and tools and such. it doesn't have to be pretty ,just functional.No spray booth ,just the basement. My work table is an old drafting table about 3 x 5 feet. It has a piece of white laminate (counter top material) glued to the top because glues and paint won't stick to it. It's great for working on large scale models. And for lighting I have an ancient Dazor drafting light with 2 -18" florescent tubes. Very adjustable.
    I hope this helps. Good luck!

    Tough call. There's a lot of good choices here.
    I like big scale ,so...
    1/8th - VW Beetle, Ala Kart ,53 Corvette ,40 Ford coupe. These would have opening doors,detailed suspension,etc. Kind of like a Pocher kit,but not that extreme.

    The earlier MPC 64 to 67 Vette's were different than the AMT version. Some of the parts were compatible,some weren't. MPC had separate seats,working steering and front suspension, etc. Some of the later MPC versions couldn't be built stock either.  Where the AMT kits had a one-piece chassis ,and an interior bucket with the seats molded in as you stated. The bodies were slightly different,too.To me they're all good kits. I'm sure others will chime in here about this and the Revell snap kits,too.
