    I wonder if a '78-'83 Chevy Malibu coupe would fly.

    Every cavity comes with a cost factor, a number I heard a couple of years ago was, that it leveled out as $1000 per cavity x2= $2000.

    If planned and done right, they could do any Firebird between '71 and '81.
    The only question is, is there enough interest in that gen. bird.

    For those of you who don't read German, plastiktruck says:
    Hi all, there is a photo-etch set for this kit, which I also bought BTW
    And you can order it....(see his link)
  5. Luc Janssens added a post in a topic Wish Lists   

    I agree with you, plus I think that kit would be great to present as a resto mod.

    Yep that site went into oblivion, not sure if there were build in measures to keep it fair play et all.
    Anyway, a site like this one is to small and doesn't cover or reach all the people who buy models even sporadically, think social media are better marketing tools, everyone is registered, no ballot stuffing and a broader and more diverse crowd.
    Wonder what a white mid '90s Ford Bronco would do if it was dropped there.....

    Yeah I saw that Bill, but it was all in Japanese, so I searched if Hobby Search carried that product too...
    About the rule thingy, easier to enforce when you ban all links to vendors, be them foreign or domestic, model kits or aftermarket products...

    You're welcome Bill, besides as you know it prohibited, per Tom's rules, to post links to vendors on the SH board.
    Then I did a search here and was surprised, no one posted about this new product, so I did...

    Barchetta headlights
    A modeller from Down Under, named Dan Chalker brought the following to my attention....

    Hmm....will have to open them up and use some leftover, Monogram '79 Mustang headlight buckets, fit to size, will see if it works when I receive my copy.

    Looks good, only too bad they didn't include chrome buckets for the headlamps.
    BTW is the area behind the lenses, flat or concave?
  12. Luc Janssens added a post in a topic Wish Lists   

    As a Belgian and also European, I wonder if there would be interest in an all new '69-'70 Cadillac Deville, which internals then also could be used for I'm guessing '65 up to '68 models.
    Or is that era Cadillac best forgotten?
     
  13. Luc Janssens added a post in a topic Wish Lists   

    Let me add the '68-'72 gen Pontiac GTO's to the pile.
    Then a '67 from the '66 tool, cuz the Coke bottle lines come out prettier on that one.
    For the TV and movie buffs, I say....a '74 Dodge Monaco, in Bluesmobile, CHiP's and maybe Hill Street blues wrapper....
  14. Luc Janssens added a post in a topic Anyone have any real insider info on Revell's "new" '70 Charger?   

    Was thinking the same thing, Bill.
    And the next phrase Jim quoted from his conversation with Ed Sexton at the Milwaukee NNL, fueled that idea, why else would one start from scratch, instead of using in part, the 1997 engineered Pro-modeler kit.
    Crossing my fingers....

  15. Luc Janssens added a post in a topic MPC '71 Dodge Demon re release   

    It would've been released by now, if it was that simple...
    Body tool (core, top, rear, LH and RH, plus sliding feature)
    Hood (1 core and cavity, and add 2 more core's and cavities, when the hood scoops are part of the deal)
    Tail lamps (2 core and cavities)
    Front bumper/grille (1 core and cavity)
    Headlamps (2 core and cavities)
    parking lights (2 core and cavities)
    front valance (1 core and cavity)
    Exhaust tips (2 core and cavities)
    Interior side panels (2 core and cavities)
     
    What kinda money are we talking about here, an optimistic 50K?, not counting tool re-arrangement for the Duster kit?
