    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.

    How I spent my weekend. [car related]
    Finally got the paint on my T/A. My first time using a HVLP gun so don't mind the 1/1 scale orange peal.   Wet sanding and buffing was always in the plan anyway.

    Yea, you just need to take 12 MM from the front of the box and 6 MM from the back.

    Hey Jon, my dad had one same color but bone stock. He had it for years and even did one trip from Pacific to Atlantic and back with it.
    Unfortunately, the Revell kits have a chopped top.

    I always thought those seats looked great in those Camaros. They came in a few colors too.



     
    And if you're really into those cars you can buy that fabric by the yard and do something like this.

    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.

    Hey, I heard a couple weeks ago that stubbies were coming back ,,, Beauty, eh?
  12. Can-Con added a post in a topic Amt/Mpc 72 Chevelle query   

    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.
