    Remember this kit having pesky sinkmarks on the "end cap" areas of the fender and RR1/4 panel.
    Hopefully they addressed that, production wise, or tooling wise by opening the grille and taillite cavity of the body

    Think it will be a hard sell Greg, better find the best sales wrap to push this idea through...
    Maybe all the knowledgeable '33-34 Ford people on board, should stick their heads together and form a think tank and build a case on why an all new kit and what the content from it and it's siblings will have to be.
    This could send a positive vibe towards people in the industry, who're tired off all of the negativity vented here....

    Hoping that I can pick up the Torino, next October while Statesside, the announcement of this kit realy caught me by surprise.

    Oops, sorry, I misread your post.


    Sometime we take this hobby much to seriously, me included.
    In the pre-internet days, we 'd be building instead of these endless discussions, again me included

    Brett, it was supposed to be a secret, Duh!

    Anyway folks, it basically boils down to this, the art of creating a 3D model from 2D material (when dealing with vintage subjects) , within a certain budget and time frame.

    No one is holding anyone back, to create their own model kits, just raise the necessary funds (250-300K) via crowd funding via social media and start one wild roller coaster ride LOL

    I used to work on prototype vehicles and pre-production vehicles, on for a volume automotive manufacturer, which cars were and still are a compromise, due to the fact that they have to be sold in a certain price range/segment.
    The model kit industry doesn't realy differ, they to position their products into a certain price range, the question is what do you do when due to circumstances beyond you control it seems you're not ably to get to get it a 100 percent right for the lunatic fringe (us), but good enough for the 99% of the core segment you cater, sink more money into the project you know you never gonna recoup, or let it slide?
    Think as a business on this one, not as a modeler!

    The essence is that you and I not really differ in opinion, we both want the most bang for our hobby buck, but what to us is a hobby, to them is an everyday struggle to survive....

    Talk to me off the board of what you do in life...my addy is luc.in.belgium@hotmail.com

    My advice to you, go to Revell present yourself as the best design engineer know to man.

    Also do call me, when you're a year or so into the job, to know how well you do.
    Am I being sarcastic, you betcha!

    Well defined Brett.
    Think Revell is Chevy or Ford, not Rolls Royce

    Tom is terrified that when he opens this mint kit, the tires etched into the clear parts. (happened to me on a few occasions, hence Im' not buying sealed vintage kits anymore.)
    Now in his mind it's still a perfect, time capsule.

    Me neither, I thought that after Round2 took bought the whole model kit line from Tomy, all 3rd party specials were a thing of the past.

    I'm wondering if the tool of the '68 Galaxie is out there.
    Don't think it morphed into something else, but then again, if they had it, it was probably already released.

  15. Luc Janssens added a post in a topic New! A detailed look at the third round of tooling refinements for the Moebius '61 Ventura kit.   

    Maybe mask the window first with masking tape,then trim the edges with a sharp blade, then foil and again trim.
    Dunno just guessing.......
