  1. Dan Gurney Tribute Scale Race Cars

    Yes, a whole album here: https://public.fotki.com/Roullier/model_cars-1/gurneys_cars/ I think they've all been seen on this forum before, but here some selected shots in no particular order:
  2. RIP Dan Gurney, 1931-2018

    One of the all-time greats in his field and a real gentleman. I was fortunate enough to see him race both as a driver and then years later as a team boss, and even get a tour of AAR. The game has changed and we won't see the likes of him any time soon. (photo by my Dad - Bridgehampton 1966)
  3. Tweedy Pie parts

    Like I said, it's been a while since I built that, so maybe I did use that supplied piece of plastic and cover it with BMF? Anyway, it would be cool to see someone build the flathead version! Have you checked with R&M for the original style tires?
  4. Tweedy Pie parts

    Yes, I scratchbuilt that part. It's been a while, but I seem to remember instructions in the R&M kit telling the builder to do so. Looks like I used a strip of BMF (still on the backing) with a small pinhead for the bolt.
  5. How many versions of Revell's Tweedy Pie Tee Bucket are there ?

    Can't remember the cost of plating (I used Chrome Tech) - it wasn't cheap, but at the time (almost 15 years ago maybe?) it was the only viable option for building an original/correct Tweedy Pie, which I was hell-bent on doing. Of course, the R&M stuff is great, but now that Revell has re-issued the kit, that would probably be the easiest and cheapest place to start. (Keep in mind that I haven't examined the new version, but it looks like it has the original parts, plus a new & improved decal sheet.)
  6. How many versions of Revell's Tweedy Pie Tee Bucket are there ?

    At one point at least, Replicas & Miniatures offered a conversion kit that had all the missing parts from the original Tweedy Pie that were needed to convert one of the later issues into a correct Roth-version Tweedy. The chrome parts weren't plated - you had to send them out yourself. I used it to build this: Note that even during the time Roth owned the car he made changes: steering wheel, single to dual headlights, and hubcaps. I built mine as an "early" Roth version.
  7. Dyno Don Funny car coming next year 2018

    Yes - I built the Eddie Schartman version when it came out and I distinctly remembering it having the roof hatch.
  8. '61 Ranchero (Old 60's Custom Rescue)

    Glad I could help - that fix to the rear trim is a big improvement. I'm really enjoying watching your progress here!
  9. AMT 1960 Mercury Comet Restoration Complete

    First rate job, Bill!
  10. instructions for Kraco March 88C Indy car AMT 1/25

    Hope this works for you - the instruction sheet is far to large to fit on my scanner, so I took a a couple of shots of the front and back of the sheet with a camera. Photos are decent resolution, so they should be readable.
  11. Johan 71 Comet improvments.....

    Yes, true - Falcons & Fairlanes don't share parts, but I think what the article is saying is that the basic design and layout is the same, the essential similarities being the front suspension design with the coil spring over the upper a-arm and integrated shock towers, leaf spring rear, and of course unibody construction.
  12. Johan 71 Comet improvments.....

    I agree - the AMT '67 Mustang is the most accurate scale representation of this chassis. Front and rear sections are essentially the same - shorten the pan to fit. Once again, this article spells out all the variations in great detail: Falcon Platform History 1960 - 1980
  13. Can you fuse two cars together?

    Perhaps you're thinking of the Holman Moody Falcon Challenger? Lots more pictures and info if you Google it.
  14. Post your crazy IMSA cars...

    Not as crazy as some of them, but it is an IMSA car:
  15. Anyone know a Bill Stillwagon?

    Never met the guy in person, but I've admired his builds for a long time! He used to post on "that other board".
