  1. Besides the Eldorado, those two airliners are of the most interest to me on that list. The 990 was one of the fastest liners ever made. Near supersonic. Only liners faster were the Concord and it's Russian cousin. Although it's mostly a car forum, most of us build other subjects from time to time as well.
  2. If you paint it with white enamel I guarantee it will yellow. Just get a spray can of gloss white acrylic. Or better yet, a spray can of Tamiya gloss white made for models.
  3. Yes. I have both and they share most of the parts, including the body
  4. Yes, I had the remains of an AMT '68 Elky left over from another project and used the bed in this.
  5. There's a guy on e-bay selling reproductions of those decals and the red/orange/yellow '79/'80 style strips on e-bay https://www.ebay.com/sch/scalemodeldecals/m.html?item=124376558934&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562
  6. Vic's resins has both for about 50 bucks a piece but without chrome plating. IIRC, that's what my resin '69 is but I got it about 12 or 15 years ago.
  7. Sure,,, It's factory stock you know. 😉😈 https://public.fotki.com/SteveMilberry/gm_models/street/page12.html
  8. That's quite the conversion. Nice job too. Is that the Vic's resin kit?
  9. Just for fun. The '69 is resin and the '70 is AMT. The rest are MPC. Not shown in these pics are my white '74 hardtop and green and magenta '76s.
  10. Just strips of decal sheet painted black. Easier than tapeing off the bed rails or painting them by hand.
  11. Hey, no need to be sorry about it. We all like different stuff. Sometimes a cover is better than the original,,, The Crash Test Dummies cover of "Peter Pumpkinhead" ,, to me, is much better than XTC's original. But that's just me. As with models,, the world would be pretty boring if we all liked the same stuff. 😉
  12. Sorry Snake, I had to cut it off before 1/2 way. Love the original, this, not so much.
  13. Got a little more done. It's starting to look like something now. The inside is now finished except for a shifter. I'll find something before I glue the roof on. I really should have sanded those ejector pin marks off the inside of the doors but at the time the paint was just an experiment. I didn't want to mess with it so I left it alone. I'm trying for a whitewashed stain look for the floor of the box. I did the bed rails with strips of decal sheet sprayed black. Still need to be trimmed, of cores.
  14. This was one of the first "real kits" I had back when I was a kid. Notice I did not say "built" as you couldn't really say I had finished it. Sure had fun playing with it though. 😉 I'd advise attaching the head and tail light bezels, get the fit dialed in and re-prime before paint. And good luck with those doors.
