  1. Nice clean build, great color combo to boot! 🤗
  2. I think this will work for what I need, though a picture of one would help, at this point. Basically need a single carb performance intake, for an early 70’s 318. I’m told this kit has one. I have lots to trade.
  3. Never had one of those, but the Mopar engine is what I need it for. The one my brain remembers having could have been in any kit, Chevy, Ford, etc.
  4. I should know the answer to this, 'cause I know one of the kits in my stash came with one. I also know I didn't use it. But I'm me, and I'm stumped. What kits had a single carb intake? It's for a Dodge 318, if that helps.
  5. That most certainly is them. I found a video on gluetube, showing somebody unpacking the contents of the above kit. When he pulls out the chrome tree, yup there they are. I doubt I'd find any originals, but maybe someone has resin cast some. I'll definitely be keeping my eyes out. Thanks for the help!
  6. Anyone know if these were ever kitted, or resin cast?
  7. The number of kits that I've either bought, or wish to acquire has gotten pretty small over the past couple of years. I also just purchased a ' 72 Dodge van kit, since I've posted this, so I can scratch that off my want list. The only other kit I really would like to get my hands on in an original AMT ' 59 Galaxie hardtop (not the junior kit).
  8. Was hoping to start this sometime this summer, but most likely I'll never get to it. It is 100% complete (including the PE set), all bags are sealed, and from what I've seen it builds in to a very nice replica. If you check ebay, you can see what people are asking for one of these. I'm looking to trade for either a Revell ' 29 Model A roadster and Revell ' 30 coupe (yes, I want both kits for this) What I'd really like to find, however, is an original MPC ' 71 or '72 Dodge van kit. The kits I trade for don't have to be sealed, but I'll need your assurances that they are 100% complete, and unmolested. Might also consider a Jo-han ' 68, ' 69 or ' 70 Javelin kit.
  9. Great color, great detailing and I love that interior!
  10. That’s a great color combo, and a great looking build.
  11. I'm glad you built it that way! Looks terrific!
  12. That is beyond clean. Such crisp detail, you’d swear you built cars all the time! 😉
  13. That's a sweet looking Fury! I love the wheels, they give it a real performance look. I think the Mopars of that era wear that color very well.
