  1. What ever happened to Ross Gibson resin Engines? I remember that there was a large range of options, everything from straight six to full blown drag. Is there a place to buy them or are they under a different name?
  2. is there anyone who offers the parts to replicate the differences?
  3. in the same kit or that both kits will be released?
  4. I have a chance to use a 3D printer for a couple weeks and was wondering if anyone has some files that are drag racing related. I really would like to see if I could do some rims in different scales, but anything will be cool.
  5. I understand that that the drag slicks that came in the older kits where not that accurate and the ones offered by comp resins are not either. Any idea on a solution.
  6. I have a few 1/16 revel drag kits and with all the great builds on this site as of late I decided to start one myself but the original drag slicks are shot due to age. Is there anyone making an aftermarket set or other options?
  7. Norman: That is the molded in detail from the kit just used different shade of black on the belt detail. Douglas: Thanks for the info, next time I will use the proper paint for the lettering.
  8. Question? Did the stock cars of the day run treaded tires and how do you paint the raised letters on them. I painted them with enamel and it does not seem to want to dry?
  9. It took me about three month of on again off again work.
  10. Never built one of these before and thought I would try one. Started out as the Round 2 reissue of the Petty Charger.
  11. Thanks Casey and Bill. Glad to have a place to post these hope they help others out there as well, I just became a member of the forum. I will post others as I gather them. Yes they are from Garlits taken years ago, have some other from there as well.
  12. Thanks I have had them laying around and thought I would share. I will start posting others as I gather them.
  13. How about using it as the Daytona? Was the nose that much different between the two?
  14. This must be for the 69 charger, so what about the rest of the parts.
  15. Thanks to all who responded, glad to hear that I'm not the only one that has to many projects!
  16. I know so I was wondering if anyone had used the Perry's resin conversion.http://www.perrysresin.com/catalog.htm That would get me the body and wheels.
  17. Thanks Chris, it is better than anything I could find. Sorry to all those who are following Chris's build, I will try not to distract him any more. I myself can not wait to see what new progress he posts next.
  18. Hi, my name is Dave and I have loved model building since I was a young kid living in NY. Back then it was not the sears catalog that was cool but the one from Auto World in PA that was the coolest. There are long periods that I have not built anything because I would get hung on something during the build and it would get set aside, sometimes for years. I also run marathons so there is a lot of time training that I do not get to work on anything. I love the 60's and 70's funny cars the most but I have built many other types as well. The biggest problem I have is that during the down time I would keep buying kits that I thought were cool. Now I have more than I will ever build. I should sell but just can not make myself do it, the thought is " no I may build that one someday" . I do not think I am the only one that has this problem, I hope.
  19. I have a few duke's kits, Petty reissue and the later charger kits. I was hoping that I could get away with not having to use the Petty kits for all the Nascar stuff.
  20. I have the Revell kit and because I am 1 a funny car fan 2 a mopar fan 3 was in the Navy I would love to build the kit as close as my skills will let me. I have been following the snake build and all though I have not the skill to build that high of detail it has inspired me to at least try to make the kit version better. As you can see from my attached I really need to start building. .
  21. I have seen some conversions for the MPC charger 1/16 kit, like the one from parry's resin. Would love to build one but was wondering if anyone has worked with them and if there was anyone who new where to get other parts for nascar conversion.
