  1. I just got an ERTL '68 AMX kit cheap. It's 1/24 but did I mention it was CHEAP? I hope to get it knocked together soon. (Oddly, it's called a Javelin on the box, but it's definitely an AMX.)
  2. I don't think I've ever seen those axles in a vintage kit, though some of the new Revell snappers have something similar. Have seen a lot of them on promos, though.
  3. And then there was the Pinto. AFAIK, it's the only car in history where the wagon was MUCH better looking than the coupe.
  4. Very nice, as we've come to expect from Randy B! Well done and model on, my friend!

    Very, VERY interesting! For some years now I've played with the idea of trying to build a '32 Mustang and your model tells me there's something to the idea. Well done and model on!
  6. Steve, here's my opinion, worth exactly what you paid for it: I'd use the SSIIs. They're not bad looking at all, and you can only use them on Oldsmobiles, which you don't seem to build all that many of. Mag 500s and steelies with dog dishes you can put on almost anything. But of course it's your model, and you should build it exactly the way YOU want to.
  7. The '70-'73 RS front end always reminded me of a Jaguar sedan. I never liked it. Didn't care that much for the straight front end either (I always thought Pontiac did a MUCH better job with the front end of that car), but now I see that Chevy was definitely going for a unified "brand" theme in those years--compare the front ends of the Camaro, Vega, '71-'72 Chevelles, and even the big Chevies. Yeah, definitely a family happening there.
  8. The Earth is definitely round. If it were flat, cats would have pushed everything over the edge by now.
  9. Doesn't look like it would be too hard to scratchbuild.
  10. Got a couple of 'em now. I need to get to work on one of them. Thinking of doing it as a tow car for a road racer or drag car.
  11. If HL gets them and I can get it for 40% off, I'll pick one up just for the Christmas tree and decal sheet.
  12. Very, VERY nice! I like everything about it except the scoop. Well done and model on! I've been thinking of doing something like this myself with this body. Thanks for the inspiration and showing that it CAN be done!
