  1. I have to see my stash. As far as I know, I have the 1973, 1974 and 1975 Pontiac Firebird Formula as well as a 1976 Pontiac Firebird in my shelf. All as the old Promo kits by MPC I think. I have to look at the rear window. I never noticed, that they should be different. I know the front bumper and grille are different and I think the rear bumper.

  2. Thank you very much! I'm not that often here and the last weeks we had some trouble here in my area.

    I'm going to do a separate thread for the GMC. There I'll show some pictures of the transformation process.

    I took a 1/24 scale die cast and did a mold out of the grille. I fitted it to the 1/25 body. After a lot of molds it turned out, that it fit to the body. On my point of view, not bad at all. I'll show pictures in the thread for the GMC.

    I love these with all their ugliness. So ugly their COOL !!!

    So right :D I am a big fan of Studebaker and sad about it, that there ar so less kits to grab. I loved to get the 1963 Lark Wagonair. So cool. Thank you for showing this one. Nice custom built of the die-cast.

  4. There is a lot of cool stuff and some, I don't know what to say about not to be rude. It goes from "hey, I didn't know, that Nash Bridges and Magnum drove coupes.. I thought, that were convertible and targas" to "holy moly.Out of words. What a bummer for the used kits. There is a lot of room to the top". And then are the kits, where I think - awesome. Thank you for showing.

  5. I'm really not often on this forum. Sorry for that. So I took some time, to show another kit, that I finished in Jauary 2021 (!).

    I didn't plan to build this cool pick up truck. It sat over "decades" in my shelf until a guy asked my brother, to rebuilt his GMC Sierra, based on this Chevrolet. So my brother and I started a conversion (I will show it later). This kit I only build, to show the changes, we've made.

    This kit is stright out of the box. Nothing changed.

    It is this model kit, I used:

    The built up was good. No problems. If this kit would not be that rar in Germany, I'd buy a hand ful more of it to convert it into the different cabs. A short on, a crew cab and king cab or what els is out there would be cool to have.

    Enough of the words, here are the pictures.
    The engine bay
    The under carriage

    At the end two pictures of the convertion to a GMC. More pictures will follow.
