  1. Are there any resin casters or 3D printers that can make sets of the side mirrors Cadillac used from roughly '68 - '91? The ones that are included in the Revell lowrider kit. I have 4 builds that could each use a set.
  2. That kit is going for around $40 when you can find it. Seems a lot to pay for a grill. The kit can be built with the included '48 Olds grill but a '48 Ford is not on top of my list of cars to build. It would be nice if someone could resin cast or 3D print a proper Caddy grill.
  3. This is the Lindberg 61 so the tunnel may need to be modified either way. I ordered the Powerglide and the 700R4. Hopefully one of these shouldn't need much modification.
  4. Hi all. I'm going to put an LS1 engine from the Revell 1999 Corvette in a '61 Impala. Any suggestions on what transmission would make sense and the best place to source one? Thanks
  5. 1/16 scale MPC Honda CB77 done in a sort of Cafe racer style. Modifications include clear cast headlight lens, handlebars bent down slightly, seat from a Yamaha racer, shortened front and rear fenders, scratch built shocks, 1/25 scale resin K&N style air filters and wiring. The exhaust pipes are wrapped with exhaust tape and the mufflers were shortened and hollowed out. Headlight, tank, seat and pipes are covered in sanded BMF to replicate bare metal. Let me know what you think. Thanks.
  6. Contacted Lindberg on March 15th, Douglas responded the next day, corrected hood dash and windshield arrived March 23rd. That's great customer service. Thanks Doug.
  7. I know it's an old thread but it just became relevant to me. I got this kit as a gift this past Christmas. I opened it that day and found the trim was damaged on the left rear quarter. I contacted Lindberg and within a short time they sent me a new body. This past week to get out of my building slump I decided to get the body prepared for paint. When I put the original hood on the replacement body it didn't fit but it fit the original body perfectly. That's when I noticed the difference in the two bodies. Apparently the original kit I got as a gift was the first tooling with the D shaped cowl and hood and the replacement body is the corrected tooling. I'll contact Lindberg and see if and how they will remedy this. When I first contacted them they asked for a picture of the UPC code and other numbers on the box. Not sure why they didn't see then that the kit was the bad one and send me the corrected hood, windshield and dash along with the body. We'll see what happens.
  8. Jeff, we can always count on you to produce a smoking Caddy. Gorgeous.
  9. Lol. Agreed. I prefer the Lincoln Mark V but this makes me want one.
