A '71 Riviera would be high on my want list, but as far as '70s models go, I could go for a 1973 Pontiac Grand Am. Handsome front end were few and far between that year, but I think this one managed to pull it off.
As far as reissues go, I would not be unhappy if Revell brought back any of the Monogram Classics. Revell Germany is doing a lot of BMWs, so haw about bringing back Heller's BMW 328? Predictions for 2018? Revell's '29 roadster is coming back is a small block Chevy, so can we expect to see the coupe being reissued with a Buick engine? AMT's '32 ford roadster is probably due for a reisuue, and could we see the David Lacy '32 roadster reissue from Revell come back with a few mods?
That's a good question. The first gen Chrysler hemi found its way into a number of sports cars. Cunningham, Allard and Facel-Vega spring to mind off the top of my head. The 426 Hemi was originally designed for NASCAR racing, where it did so well it was banned, so obviously they could go the distance. Maybe it was just a matter of availability?
Not a car, but an example of what you can do with Milliput. I made the pistol from aluminum tube, and the base was styrene sheet, but the rest was sculpted from Milliput. THe Figure stands four and a half inche tall.
You can shape Milliput like clay when it's soft. Just keep your fingers and tools damp to keep them from sticking. Milliput is pretty tough once it's set, which is great if you want to make a fin or a sharp corner, but you can carve and sand it.
I bin most of it, but I will save a little sprue, chop it up fine and add it to a bottle of liquid glue to use as filler. I've also used it to make small parts by putting it into heavy foil moulds. I keep clear sprue and clear red sprue separate for making lenses.
