  1. Gremlin Drag Car

    Looks just dynamite, Johnny....one of the nicest box builds of this I have seen....BTW, are your race seats the pair found in the MPC 67 GTO kit....great replacements if so, they do nicely as lightweight seats....best, the Ace...
  2. Tires and Rims

    ....The GT race cars of this, and other era's used a BBS mesh spoke race wheel, usually with the gold spokes. Even though the photo shown has a wheel with yet a different spoke, if you check the dozens of photos of this car and many other Datsun racers of the same era, you will find that you could use the more common BBS wheels I mention. Fujimi makes many set's of various BBS wheels with various tire combo's as well....Ebay is the ticket once you get reference photo's, as I don't know where to find the exact wheel you seek....but remember,,, wheels changed race to race, event to event, so using the more common BBS would do nicely....just a thought....the Ace.......///////...I just Googled up ' Paul Newman Datsun's'...and, as I mentioned, the car is shown with various wheels depending on the time, event, etc, some even showing silver mesh BBS wheels as well, and even other set's including some photo's using Mini Lite's . Anything you use mentioned would be period correct.......Ace..
  3. Hudsonic

    Chuck, that is just a killer build..love it....what paint was used on the body, BTW.....looks great...the Ace..
  4. MPC White Lightning

    .....Is it fact that the black 69 MPC Camaro also has the Firebird interior and seats ....always wondered before buying one....thanks, the Ace...
  5. MPC White Lightning

    ......Well, thank you for that, Bob.....your info has just cost me another credit card hit from Ebay if that's the case...lol.........gotta get one now.....the Ace.....
  6. MPC White Lightning

    ....The big complaint with the old WL bird is the fact the roof is scored to create a t top deal...yuk......no stock wheels either....best bang for the buck is the AMT version from the mid nineties that is of an orange built car on the box .....molded in nice pale gray, clean and crisp, perfect chrome tree, and both the T/A hood and the dual scoop 400 hood are included....the Lightning only contains the T/A hood....just my 2 cents...oh, this version I suggest is cheap and there are always tons of them online....the Ace....
  7. 1966 Chevy impala Modified Stocker Completed

    This piece is as nice an example of this particular kit as I have ever seen....terrific work, just looks killer....congrats, the Ace....
  8. 1/25 AMT '40 Ford Sedan

    .....I can say that even though there is, when I built my gasser 40 coupe, removing it completely and plating the floor with plastic sheet was super easy, and took maybe an hour to complete.....if you look up TROUBLE MAKER in the drag car section, all my photos should appear with a chassis shot to see what I mean...hope this helps...the Ace....
  9. Yeah, and it really is a big disappointment, and the box and decals really don't justify buying one, IMO.....I have a tendency to think that Round2 is 'reaching' on reissues like this trying to capture something very exciting from the long ago, and it just does not cut it....just my 2 cents....the Ace....
  10. ....Let me PM you later today, think I have new parts here you need, Andy.....the Ace...
  11. 69 Mustang

    ....Love it....can't wait to see your project finished ....the Ace...
  12. 69 Mustang

    Boy, that's going to look mighty tough when completed.....I like the stance and the whole idea here.....the Ace...
  13. Lindberg 64 Dodge parts needed; FOUND

    ....I have a sealed Maverick super stock Lindberg I'm dying to move out...PM me if this helps....Ace..
  14. 68 Sox and Martin Roadrunner

    .....Also keep in mind in those days the rear seat and all stock interior components were required by NHRA rules...no roll bar either, so remember that if you use reference pictures from so-called ' restored' or clone racers of this car from the last many years, they could have any combo of parts and pieces with full roll cages and such, wheel tubs, you name it, and will not reflect the original idea you are after.....just a thought....the Ace...
