  3. Don't forget the Mizar flying Pinto mizar flying Pinto - Bing images Was supposed to be in James Bond THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN
  4. The annual kit did before 1967 revision of the tool
  5. At $57 , what is the advantage of producing in China?
  6. $49.95 will be the kiss of death for model car kits. It would have to be the only model kit you want to buy. Our company raised our prices and we now have zero orders.
  7. Round2 needs to fix the Road Runner Body before reissuing it again
  8. This is true but I made a really nice stock Coronet R/T out of it.
  9. There was a 1:1 kit for the Mustang convertible to turn it into a station wagon. Called the Hobo Mustang Hobo (ponysite.de
  10. My hood had a slight overbite. I didn't start with a mint first issue kit but rather an '80s issue. Maybe the mold is not as good as before. Being plastic, it can be fixed
  11. The 1966 MPC comes with a 427 big block but no stock exhaust headers. AFIK '66 Vettes didn't have 327 F.I. ,So why the fender badges?
  12. Proof that the Mission Impossible car was a 1968 not a 1969. The tool was probably altered to '69 before they thought about a MI car. So, now we can make a real MI car. Hope there is an uptop but I doubt there will be.
  13. I like the AMT version of the 1971-73 Mustang better than the MPC version.
  14. I forgot which is which. The last AMT version (1967+) of the dash is the NON-Corsa with no tach and extra gages. Did Yenko use a 1965 type dash?
  15. I used an AMT 1965 Fastback for a TV "Spenser For Hire" car. I used a current AMT 1966 kit for new chrome too. I swapped the later dual exhaust chassis versus the original single exhaust. What I found is that the new and original chassis are different. Required a lot of cutting and filing
  16. Back in the '60s, there was a boat gas pumping station in Centre Harbor, NH. The owner had a red '63 Corvette split window with "ULM" New Hampshire license plates. That car will be an upcoming project for me. Mike your project has inspired me to go forward on the project.
  17. I built a 57 chevy in the '70s in this color. Very classic.
  18. The AMT was endorsed by Ford and made as a promo model. For this reason , the AMT lacked chassis detail. MPC had a clean slate and built ther's as a model kit. It's six of one, half dozen of the other, I guess
  19. I got hold of Ron Andrews on Facebook message. I got my order very quickly. You ask him if he has the mold to make a resin kit for you.
  20. This was the AMT Styline kit. Like a promo
