  1. NEW Round2 AMT 2018

    Thank you.
  2. NEW Round2 AMT 2018

    Does anyone know what year the Toyota pickup is? I looked to see if those are stock stripes for the sides, but they don't appear to have been an option at any time.
  3. Hummer H1, Meng Models

    Have you been able to come up with a retail kit of your conversion? I really like the addition of the spare tire on the back! I haven't bought the Meng resin upgrade because there is no spare tire or any of the protective tubular frame for the rear of the truck, and it just seems like a huge omission.
  4. I need a stock air cleaner for the Revell/Monogram Jeep CJ-7. That is the only part my flea market find was missing. Did anyone build theirs with the custom air cleaner that doesn't need the stock one? Thanks for looking!
  5. Great Traders List

    Smooth trade with thatz4u! Excellent to work with, and patient with me, too!
  6. Looking for decals for older kits

    Have you tried Billy Gooche to see what sets he makes? I'll PM you his e-mail address.
  7. '69 Shelby GT500 White Stripes

    Yes, it would. The convertible has the fender scoop behind the door, and the hard top (sports roof) has the scoop on the B-pillar. There is an extra stripe in the convertible kit to work around the scoop.

  9. I was only talking about the 1978-79 model years. Here is a small section of one page showing what were available in 1978: 3.3 and 3.8 liter V6s and a 5.0 and 5.7 liter V8. I admit I missed the 4.4 liter V8, but we don't have a model of a 1979 El Camino available, so I was focused on just the 1978 brochure. Sorry for the incomplete information.
  10. The Monogram kit IS a V6a A 3.3 liter I believe. You are correct that the MPC kits have the 305 V8. Also available for the 1978 model year of the Monogram kit was a 3.8 liter V6 for California and a 350 V8. 1979 was the last year for the 350 in the El Camino (according to the dealer brochures). The Monogram inside door panels leave a LOT to be desired, that is for sure, but everything else is pretty well done.
  11. Monogram 69 GTO windshield

    I have a used windshield/rear window piece that will need some polishing, as there is a little bit of paint on one corner of the windshield. I know it will polish out, because I have polished much worse, but I don't know how you feel about doing the polishing. If you are interested, please send me a PM, and I can get it sent out to you.
  12. JO-HAN Maverick kits

    I don't think it is on his website yet, just eBay. Also, he makes an engine bay (from the 1969 Torino Cobra, if I'm not mistaken) that is just about as perfect for a Maverick/Comet as you can get. It WILL need trimming, as the Jo-Han kits aren't perfect chassis-wise, but if you are going whole hog, this is another part you will want to get.

    Missing Link does a stock hood for the Comet. I have one, and it is nice.
  14. JO-HAN Maverick kits

    I forgot about that one. But thinking back on it, I think I remember, I could be wrong, that the Fury and the Rambler wagon were cobbled together out of parts already produced, and that new decal sheets, and SOME custom wheel covers for the Rambler were made to go into the kits. Along with new boxes, of course. I do not remember if the Turbine car was also cobbled together from existing overrun/unsold parts or not. This was all a long time ago that I talked to Okey and got the info from his website. I DO remember him saying quite a bit of tooling was missing, and had been slowly "misplaced" since the original company had started having financial troubles. Now, the workers that might have ended up with the tooling may still have them, or they may have been turned into Buicks by now. Who knows. My thought is that most of the former glory that was Jo-Han is never going to come back. As to what showed up at the shows by Moebius, I cannot say. If the '59 Dodge DID, is it still missing the interior?
  15. JO-HAN Maverick kits

    From what I gathered from Okey Spaulding back when he bought the remaining Jo-Han tooling, the Maverick-specific stuff is gone. And might have been for years. I was so desperate to get some things from him, and they just didn't exist. The last time I bought a new Jo-Han Maverick kit was 1999/2000. They weren't easy to get, and they went fast. I have no word on the story about WHEN the Maverick stuff disappeared, just that it HAD disappeared. So it must have made it to about 2000. Apparently IMC (not Industro-Motive Corp from the '60s) had the tooling for the 1975 Cutlass and the 1959 Rambler, and Okey had the EZ Turbine car, '59 Rambler, (maybe) the '69 AMX and '69 Rambler, and the Mercury Comet, but that seems to be the limit on complete kits that could be sold. There have been rumors recently about someone having the 1959 Dodge tooling somewhere, but I haven't seen the tooling or heard of kits ever being produced. Not that I would be on the list to get the info, but that's my 2ยข.
