  1. Salvinos JR Monte Carlo

    Nobody except Johan has gotten the Colonade body GM windshield right. The back of the roof on Montes seems difficult too. Never seen a model or diecast I thought was even 90% correct there.
  2. What are the best Nascar kits to build?

    I love the 89-96 AMT Thunderbird kits. Just never built one as a Thunderbird. But they have provided a great chassis for at least 40 seventies builds. Torinos Montegos, Chevelles ,Lagunas a Grand Am and now a SalvinosJRModels Cutlass. They pass for a Banjo chassis on so I use them for that.
  3. GMC Daycab update 9/22

    I like the short one. Lots of short bumpers around in the seventies early eighties.
  4. Buddy Baker's 1980 Oldsmobile 442 in 1/25th scale.

    The frt bumper on the diecast is closer to right. It wraps around the corners better and has the intake slots that are missing on the kit. I do think the diecast rear bumper is wrong too.
  5. Buddy Baker's 1980 Oldsmobile 442 in 1/25th scale.

    I will say the body is free of sink marks and has minimal part lines. Most of the big companies can’t pull that off.

    A Nichels Mopar should look like this. Picture not the greatest.
  7. Buddy Baker's 1980 Oldsmobile 442 in 1/25th scale.

    Yes but they still had a fabbed k member of sorts not like this chassis . This chassis has a engine crossmember similar to a ford Holman Moody would have

    That would be a better use of the chassis. But the chassis still isn’t even that right for a Chrysler. No k member?

    I just took the body glass seat and decals. The dash is nice too. The rest can go. When I’m done putting it on a different chassis it will be a nice shelf model.

    Hemi!
  11. Show pics of your dm600's

    Not to sound stupid but what was the reason for the offset cab?

    How is that kit? Always thought about getting it

    Thanks

    Absolutely always use white primer under yellow. Yellow hides poorly the pigments to make yellows are not strong.
