    ^^^ Sweeeet...
    I'd expect Revell to try this rather than Moebius - I don't think Moebius ever made a custom version of anything, and lowriders are Revell's bread and butter nowadays.

    That would be something else if all the custom parts could be put back in - although the one-piece glass unit for the chopped top conversion would be a REAL surprise to see... Model Empire's sale last year had a bunch of the front and rear ends and I've been kicking myself for not grabbing a few.

    I thought the mold for the original '57 Chevy "Pepper Shaker" kit was supposed to be worn out? Are they redoing the newer kit with the old decals, or ?

    This is the clay model of the Nova El Camino, dated July 1961; the roof treatment was transferred to the Chevelle:

    Don't give up just yet - it takes practice and the proper tools but it can be done. A scribing tool will get the line started, and the back edge of an X-acto blade will continue it to the correct width and depth. Use a metal straightedge and go lightly and slowly, and of course practice on scrap plastic first. The door on a 2-door Nova should be a hair under 2" long at the widest point - measured horizontally along the body crease (I just now checked this on my '65 Nova hardtop which is the same body as the '63). Yours may be a bit shorter because of where the roof was installed. Here's a quick photoshop of how it could look:

    Good luck and happy modeling!

    Sweet! I got the Christine version at an estate sale many years ago. And it has that same little misalignment on the driver's door trim. They did add the movie car's door lock buttons, at least!

    What exactly is this, a miniature drill or ?

    And gone. Good spotting!

    I'm doing one (but only one!) at the moment, a '64 Coupe deVille I built back in the '70s. So far it's been an excellent reminder of how thoroughly I used to glue things together.

    I just deleted everything of mine from Photobucket - over 1400 photos. I'll replace what's gone from my other forums bit by bit, but no hurry.

    Reported. Is anyone else reporting these?

    Wow. I'd save those cool "STOP" flashers above the windshield of that school bus if the lenses are OK. Too bad the FC Jeeps are all eaten up.
    Mark, are you a member of the H.A.M.B.? I'd like to post a couple of those to their "Sitting and Rotting" thread with your permission.
  14. ChrisBcritter added a post in a topic eBay Scammer Afoot!   

    I messaged both the previous seller (he responded that he'd heard from many people about it) and eBay early this morning; the listing has been pulled.

    Friday evening I was VERY surprised to see a sharp-looking replica of the American Graffiti '32 Ford heading north on Waukegan Road in Glenview crossing Lake Avenue; no time for a photo but it looked very accurate.
