    All excellent, but that gold one is an absolute knockout!

    Just looks right, as usual with your builds.  Really like your attention to accuracy and functionality, as far as how a 1:1 would be built.

    Very nice, one of the best builds of the Revell 3-window that I've seen.

    Mission accomplished!  Really has the look of a '60s street machine.  Very good attention to detail, as well.

    Very nice detailing on an unusual subject.
    (Also glad to see that Ol' Gray has the common courtesy to do his business in private...)

    Looks odd because the lower headlights and lower grill section are cast with the front bumper.  Upper headlights are cast separately (sitting to the right in my pic, above the wheels), as is the upper grille (hidden behind the front bumper in my lousy pic).  Rear bumper is also upside down in my photo, which probably makes that look weird, too.
    My first impression was that it was a straight repop of a '66 annual, but my little bit of research isn't showing that a convertible annual was ever available.  So seems like the master must have been converted from a hardtop annual.  Has everything necessary for a build except wheel backs, tires, and engine.

    Picked up a resin 1966 Cyclone convertible resin at a local show yesterday.  Vendor didn't know the manufacturer, and a little Googling isn't giving a result, but it seems to be very good quality, complete with plated parts.
    Wasn't on my radar, and I'd normally prefer a hardtop, but I couldn't pass it up for the price.  And it's not like we're going to be seeing a styrene '66 available again.

    Beautiful. I agree, nice to see a non R/T build.

    Beautiful job as usual, SFD!  Always enjoy following your builds...

    Beautiful job on both

    Wow, I was just thinking recently that I hadn't seen him post any builds in quite a while.
    Never met him in person either, just really admired his work - seemed like his rod builds were always very well thought out and executed.
    His family has my sympathies.
    Here's one of his builds I especially liked:

    Lousy QC on those whitewalls...

     AMT did Gremlin annuals through 1976.  A couple of years ago, Round 2 restored the tooling and reissued the 1976 kit, followed by the 1975.  If you want to convert to the earlier "small bumper" body style, it's available in resin.  The AMT Gremlins kits have a V8, but the MPC Pacer coupe and the AMT Pacer wagon each have an I6.  Both were also recently reissued.
  14. Robberbaron added a post in a topic 1964 Studebaker Avanti R3   

    Not sure how I missed this one when it was originally posted, either.  Easily the best Avanti build that I've ever seen, period!
  15. Robberbaron added a post in a topic Revell 1983 Hurst Oldsmobile Cutlass   

    Real nice.  Cleanest build I've seen of this kit, yet.
