    Well, the thing I learned about this whole Cecil the Lion situation is that I should have gone to dental school! If the good Dr. was able to pay $50,000 for a license and probably another $5-10,000 in expenses to go to Africa to hunt, then obviously he is doing pretty good filling cavities!
    While the killing of a Lion is newsworthy, I do find it interesting what some networks are doing as far as coverage on all events of the past couple of days.

    My thoughts as well.
     
    Nice job on that conversion, I was digging through my spares box last night getting the parts together to do the same!

    In the past when I printed coupons, if I walked the aisle and didn't find something I needed/wanted, I would hand the coupon to another shopper.
     Today I mention to others to use their smartphone for the 40% off coupon.

    Is there a model club or swap meet coming up? I once sold a bunch of old enamel sprays at a swap meet because of the same reason as you. A model club might have members who would purchase them cheaply.

    For custom outlaw and cowl hoods, check out www.lexsscalemodeling1.bravehost.com
     
    I saw many different types of hoods on his site. He also sells on eBay under seller ID 67impala427.
     
    There was a cowl and outlaw hood listed for the 70 Camaro.

    That one is usually referred to as a L-88 style hood. I don't recall the second generation Camaro's having a cowl induction hood like the first generation models. I have seen some in resin, will have to dig through my resources to see if I can find who was casting them.

    For me it was the door gaps and the outside mirror, just didn't look real enough to me.

    The old adage is true- Just because you can, doesn't mean you should!

    I remember Bob Downie (ZoomZoom) created a model using a late model Mustang, Challenger and Camaro and it came out much nicer than this thing!

    Coming along nicely Mark, as usual, awesome detail work!

    Don't worry, I am sure the government has all of our information already on a secure server with a back up cloud!

    Looks great, I might have to pickup (pun intended!) one of the AMT trucks for this exact purpose!

    Check out Scenes Unlimited, Danny has a bunch of wheels and might have something close to what you are looking for. The Modelhaus would be another place to check.
     
    Both places have a great product and are top notch to deal with.

    Me too! It would be nice to have 2wd & 4wd versions.
    I think if someone was to tool up a Chevy kit that was a bit more detailed than the AMT kit is/was, they could have a hit on their hands. And like Moebius, offer up some variations- long & short bed, 2wd & 4wd. A nice Suburban would be cool too!

    some things hint Model, others hint Real, so I went with Model.
