  1. What's the latest Revell North America News

    Weird. It's up on the website: https://www.revell.com/products/cars/muscle-1964-to-1974/
  2. I think Norm Veber at Replicas and Miniatures Company of Maryland sells a set like that.
  3. Tamiya Acrylic tends to be a little thicker. Sometimes a lot.
  4. Pretty nice looking kit. Thanks for sharing, Bill.
  5. wire wheels???

    Last I checked with him, Norm doesn't sell the wheels anymore, but he is working on getting them back into production. Your wheels look great, btw, Curt.
  6. Mystery kit tires

    The '68 El Camino Street Machine definitely has those, and they're in the '67 Impala Street Machine, too, but I'm not 100% sure the fronts and rears are different sizes in that one.
  7. 2006 Mustang GT Grille (kit #853)

    Mike, I can get you one before January. You got PM.
  8. I concur with the fellas who posted above about a 70 Charger sheet. I've gotten some stuff from Keith Marks, which worked pretty nice, but it wasn't made for that kit so the alignment on that stripe was a bit off. Would be great to have someone make an accurate sheet dedicated to the kit.
  9. You could also try cutting off the spindle itself (the plastic peg that goes into the wheel back. This might have a different name but I'm super tired right now) and attaching a piece of plastic or metal rod or tubing of equal diameter slightly higher and/or elongating the holes in the wheel backs a little bit. It's more of a long shot, but maybe custom lowered spindles from other AMT kits from the same era might fit in place of the Starliner spindles. Not sure if there are any other options besides cutting up the stock spindles or scratch building brand new ones.
  10. Flip the spindles upside down, maybe?
  11. Flat Head finned head ?

    I like the detail on the MCG heads a lot, but if building a Revell based flathead, they are a little big for the block. The Revell 40 Ford Street Rod has Edelbrock heads similar to the above and the '48 Ford Custom Coupe has finned Navarro heads.

    The details on this car are spectacular and your work looks very clean. I also have a couple of sets of the Pegasus hubcaps,and would love the chance to get resin copies of your hubcaps, as well, especially considering that The Modelhaus has effectively shut its doors. May I ask what tires you're using?
  13. You nailed that patina. Gorgeous.
  14. lets do our own 36 coupe chop

    Very nice. Did you fill with superglue, epoxy, Bondic, or other?
  15. My latest beater

    That's pretty cool, Mark. Very realistic. Excited to see more.
