  2. satterwhite78 added a post in a topic Anyone have any real insider info on Revell's "new" '70 Charger?   

    From what I can see in the package F/F diecast Charger w/o breaking the plastic/cardboard seal, the seat is a drag bucket shape seat. The back roll bar appears to be from the kit but has a horizontal bar just below the door seal instead of a diagonal bar starting from the ds top extending to the ps bottom. The floor pan is not like 68/69 or Daytona version but a stripped floor pan. Dash, steering wheel and offset shifter same as in mentioned kits.

    My sealed collectibile was more accessible than my shelf display. I packed it up when rotating my display case got full and I'm not sure which box it's packed in. Wife has gone to bed and I'm sure she doesn't want to see the 1/25 scale of the Mecum auction parade around the bed!

    IIRC the main chassis was the same, the frt wheels where held in by steel pins thru the front spindles and the rear had a metal axle thru the rear end. The grill has open headlights.

    New tooling could mean seat, rear roll bar floor pan, grill and bumper assembly, possibly rear tail panel and lights, scoop and blower setup on top of the hemi and body( side marker lights in different positions than 68/69 and different front fender/hood for the wrap around bumper). Later factory seats with new interior side panels with a separate R/T door scoop can be added for a stock version.

    For a nascar version, a great platform to start. Just hope they leave the hood solid with the option to make the cutout for the blower.
    From the photos above, stock grill with closed headlight cover (Thank you  lord!), new frt seats, no rear shocks, wipers, door handles, side mirrors and stock exhaust system ( unless on the parts tree) and the front clip appears different from the 68/69 kit, and the side marker light appear to be in their respective places.  I don't think it going to take much to convert to a stock version with a little donation from the 68/69 kits

    Great build !  Around these neck of the woods in 1976, AMC (especially the Pacer) meant All Most a Car!

    Like the KoolAid man says..."  Ooooohhhh  Yeeeaaa"!  Looks fantastic, I was wondering where you dragged it off to when you got the tractor and pulled it off my lot! LOL!

    I've purchased two  about three weeks ago. Completed the engine and got most of the parts painted and ready, Sprayed the undercarriage with red oxide and will do a overspray of the body color to it, Thoroughly impressed with what Moebius has accomplished.
    What's more impressive to me that Dave Metzner posting a correction ( on a public forum mind you ) that neither has been seen or heard from  other competitors when some of their products fell short of their intended goal, Granted this isn't a perfect world by no means.  Dave puts a 'face" on a company that in return will promote brand loyalty and quality products with fan inputs.  Proud to showcase in my collection and say " That's a Moebius!"

    1972 Cutlass Supreme....Hardtop
    Never been much of a fan of convertibles but have enjoyed riding in them from time to time.  Some time back I was looking for the Revell Special Ed. Olds Cutlass issue but didn't have much luck when I came across the  Revell Muscle Cutlass convertible (the black top/rose side). Knowing that Missing Link had a hard top version, my plan was to eventually acquire the Missing  Link resin and use the kit for a donor.
    Fast forward  to around Nov/Dec 2015. A thread of the Hurst Olds Cutlass featured a picture of a hard top version along with a mention that the top looks eerily similar to a 70 Monte Carlo top which both 1/1 cars seem to have. Having a spare AMT 70 M/Carlo with the intentions of making a nascar stocker, I decided to trimmed the roof off and transplant to the Revell body.  I wanted a smooth and seamless hard top without the roof/body separation trim.  I trimmed the Revell body to where the C pillar section would go just enough to where the roof was just flush with the body, glued, puttied, sanded, repeat......done.  Little to none trimming and adjustment using the kit's interior mated up into the body. I did fab the frt and rear windows because the Revell frt windshield was to small as also the rear window. The AMT frt windshield was to thick for I used the frt windshield frame attached to the body and cut at the base while using the AMT A pillars to connect to the Revell frt windshield frame.  Testors One Coat lacquer Pure Gold #1846 accents the body

    Sanded the chrome finned valve covers smooth and painted, used a nascar  intake and not sure on the air breather, possibly from an AMT 67 mustang

    My heart felt condolences to Chuck's family.  Back this summer I talk to Chuck over the phone about some decals that he had just made (The Pete Hamilton King Ent.) and from his energetic enthusiastic tone of his voice I pictured someone who was passionate about what he did and for the hobby that we all enjoy. When I hung up from our conversation, I was thinking that the only time there was a bad day in this man's life was not being able to create something in our hobby of models.  
    When we have extra pieces to a model kit we have more options to create something for our enjoyment and others.  By Chuck not being with us won't dampen our enthusiasm for building but probably appreciate him more for what he has done for us while he was with us.  There are others in this hobby that I'm appreciative of for their talents and for the sharing of their abilities.  I hope that some of Chuck's creativity will continue for future modelers' to enjoy.         Chuck Satterwhite

  15. satterwhite78 added a post in a topic Revell 72 Olds Pace Car   

    I was up in my garage looking over my stash for the next project to start on.  I came across the Revell 72 Cutlass convertible (not the special Edition 1st release) and a AMT 70 Monte Carlo body that I had. It appeared to me that the  M/Carlo roof and the roof of a 72 Cutlass hardtop are similar.....as to which the question I am posing is....Would the Roof of the M/Carlo and cutlass hardtop of the two actual cars the same or were they different between the two GM divisions? I know that Missing Links offers a resin hardtop and that would save a lot of hacking, cutting, puttying, Etc......but the roof line of the two look eerily similar?  Any comments?
