    I guess my beef with the metal axles is, don't get me wrong, they work great on the rear end, I just got to liking the rivets Revell used on the front of some of their kits. Its just me,  I know their there..

    Here's a pic of the new decals. I liked the wheels, just not the center caps, here a pic of how I change them. I'm making mine a station wagon, got to do something with those headlights, and get the kahonis up to attempt doing the wood right.

    I kinda found out late that it had been released. I watched a youtube review and the guy mentioned how it was packaged, and I thought nnnoooo they will be fine. So I went searching for the kit before work, and went to Hobby Lobby, no such luck. So I thought what the heck, I work 7 days a week, and if I don't open the store right at 10, oh well. I went to the closest hobby shop , thinking they open at 10, arrived woohoo changed their time to 9:30, Thank you Colpar Hobbies. Got to work on time, took care of doing what I had to do, and opened the kit. Bummer the pillars were bent, and the windshield frame was broken right in the middle. I emailed Revell, using their online form, 4-6 weeks. I Like to blame the Chinese for this. And I'll ask a question just to get your opinion. Have we taken a giant step backwords with having metal axles in both the front and back of the kits?

    I like what you did with the headlights, I was going to try that with mine, and since its a woody, make it a station wagon instead of a panel.

    I combined a 57 AMT Chevy bb quad intake with the top part of a Monogram sprint car intake, Used the injectors from the monogram kit, the stakes are exhaust pipe tips from a Revell Corvette kit, the air cleaners are from the Revell Beretta kit.

    Mines ordered, can see a bb in it, slammed panel truck, How about someone giving some hints on making it a panel.

    Received it today, opened it up, its a nice kit. A little simplified for my tastes but it has some nice parts, wheels are very nice, the tires are no names, guess I have to get used to that. suspension is ok, did Foose not put shocks on the front of his truck? The engine is great, I didn't realize he used a big block ford in his truck, I know I'll keep the headers for a ZR1 engine. Since I'm not into Fords,  most of the kit will get resold.

    I just ordered the Foose truck off of ebay.

    It seems to me, Revell is doing the best they can. The 57 black widow was screwed up by the Chinese, and the mold was broken for the 31 Coupe. I think we need to use as much patience in waiting for those new releases as we use in building them.

    The Murphy is safe, no Hot Rod parts in 1/10 scale.
