  1. Well I didn’t get this today, but I attended a model show this last Saturday in Clackamas Oregon and among the things I got was an AMT 1959 Fairlane Hardtop body and a complete built up of a 1962 Lincoln Continental Hardtop. Time for some Superclean.
  2. I have used the staggered chop on various bodies, it indeed works. You do have to do a bit of thinking it out in some applications.
  3. My thoughts too Snake45, My own opinion, I would be very surprised if they really do a 4 door hardtop or whatever. Personally I’d be looking for a re-issue of the 67 hardtop with a wheel change. Not that I’m trying to kill an otherwise good conversation.
  4. Personally as far as the real cars go, I much prefer the 63 Impala over the 64 Impala, that’s just my opinion. With that being said, the AMT or REVELL 63 would make a great starting point for a mid 60’s custom. Just an idea.
  5. Sign me up for at least two of the Dodge D100 long beds.
  6. mrmike, and anyone else for that matter. Before you toss out your color of paint you might want to shoot your color over a white primer. It’s an old car painters trick I learned from my dad years ago. Simply light colors and warm colors shoot over white it makes the color more vibrant. Also the paint colors would very a bit from day to day during assembly (atmospheric conditions). It looks good so far, keep it going. Best Regards
  7. Nice work, I hope that you keep going on this.
  8. I like what you are doing so far. I personally like the retooled version from AMT.
  9. Question; Is there a website for MCW Resins?
  10. The old AMT annual had a great custom grille--no lights, just fine bars. You're giving me an idea, here. I’m glad that I could help out, you might want to check out what Steve Stanford has done with a Mustang of this vintage. 😊
  11. I am going to wait for awhile and then see about picking one up, I am wondering about accuracy of the body and proportions and all. Looks interesting though.
  12. With all the inaccuracies, maybe a custom would be in order. Just saying. 😎
  13. Actually a 1950 would be easy to build from Revell’s 1949. How about instead Revell put out a 1951 Mercury, that would really sell since a 1951 has never been produced in plastic.
  14. For my 2 cents worth, I really would like to see: 1967-72 Chevrolet C10 Pickup 1950’s-72 Dodge Pickup any pre war (1930’s-40) Chevrolet or Mopar Coupe. way to go Moebius & Round2 how about opening the vault and bring back some of those 3/1 kits or restore the 1965 Fairlane back to stock. keep up the good work.
  15. Norm Verber’s ‘30/‘31 Model A is the best I’ve seen and it is accurate as far as I’m concerned. I would go ahead and send him an email and ask if it is still available, you never know.
