    It does bite but I doubt you will be infected

    This kit is good to restore older MPC Chargers.

    Is this a Revell?

    1970 is the Bunkie Bird (Bunkie Knudsen) aka Pontiac noses.

    I like the 1967-69 TBirds,not so much 1970/71.

    Everybody knows the shortcomings of Palmer kits, however, they are collectible now.
    I have 2 Impalas which I remember seeing at the stores back in 1964/65.

    AMT changed the headlights to simplify the kit.

    Missing Link has a nice 1971 grille to back date the  1973 MPC.  Too bad AMT ruined the stock Mustang to make that racer.

    I have an acetate promo that was heavily spray painted and little warp. The air may be a problem. Sealing the surface with paint helps it seems
    A plastic called Cycolac was introduced in mid-1961. Half of the AMT promos warped like crazy, while others remained straight.

    My it problems were that I wanted a 74 interior not a 71  Then I had to fit the amt chassis to the MPC interior tub.

    Early 80s resin kits used polyester and were very brittle.
  12. Bob Ellis added a post in a topic Best 1963 Split Window Corvette in 1/24(25)??   

    I think you are correct. The ERTL body was a new tool. The clip for the rotating headlights was missing in the newer body.

    That silver used to peel off the real 2002s like crazy.
  14. Bob Ellis added a post in a topic AMT 49 Ford coupe   

    AMT took the Cadillac name off the valve covers in the 70s

    Very nice work. I tried food coloring to tint with no success.
