I think you'll find that a set of MPC Vette wheels will have a smaller outside diameter than the Fujimi wheels. Even though the real Vette wheels from back then were getting up to 17 and 18 inches, MPC never made bigger tires so thier wheels are undersized. I have a Fujimi Celica XX with the Watanabe wheels and they look larger then the Vette wheels but I've never really looked at them side by side.
In all honesty Bill, my uncle wanted to spray the final color coat and the clear. but his garage and equipment so I didn't want to say no. I would have rather done it all myself though. [there are some things I would have done differently] I did do the bodywork that wasn't welding and sprayed most of the color on ,, and the color sanding and buffing will be all mine.
Sorry Howard, never heard of the guy, had to google the name. But I'm serious about the stubbies. A couple guys in the local club are beer aficionados. They were disusing it at our club barbecue last month.
First off, the AMT and MPC are two completely different kits sharing no parts. That said, If it's closest to the original MPC annual, it's the SSlasher.
Yea, saying the grille near as good as the original in the last issue of the AMT kit is doing it a kindness ,,, it looks absolutely nothing line any Chevelle grille. Not even the same style. What it looks like is the grille from a '72 Monte Carlo.
