Parts look great,as usual for Modelhaus, but where is the 69 RR grill? It was different than the 68 RR and 69 GTX. When we did our 69 RR 440-6 conversion we put the center of a JoHan 69 grill in an AMT 69 grill frame. I sent all of our masters to Perry's resin, so I don't know about the availability nowadays.
Look at the tail lights, it's a '70 Challenger. Not the '70 Landy paint scheme, but a '70 car. I can't read the class designation over the number on the side glass, but I think it's an SS car based on the engine callouts on the hood scoop.
I got to see test shots/ buildups of the Foose C7, Nickey Camaro, and some others at the Southern Nationals NNL this weekend. Ed Sexton said there were no changes to the basic body of the Camaro, but the Nickey parts, especially the hood, looked good. It's also an RS, so there is a new grill, taillights, etc. The Ford GT looked great, it appears to be a snap kit and the built kit on display just about nailed the color of the show car.
Motorwheel Spyders. They were in the kit along with the nicest 3pc rear spoiler I've seen. The Shartman car ran with the scoop in both positions. Interestingly, I had several re released Comet kits with the boxart shown in the beginning of this thread packaged with decals from a Shartman Comet kit. They were decals for the Gold(?) car with the orange and blue squares.
I looked at the M3D site and could find little technical information. I like the looks of the head & valve cover, but how much finish work after printing did it take to get to the point you showed? Is the printed surface smooth?
Since the original issue of that kit was of the Gene Snow car, it's only natural that the chassis is more correct for that version than the others. For the sake of accuracy, I would build the Snow car.
As stated earlier, the best Cragar SS wheels come from Johan. I especially like the wheels in the original issue AMX S/S car. The detail in the center caps is unbelievable and the overall shape is spot on. In the AMX they have both shallow and deep offsets, perfect for 70's SS and PS cars.
Johan is often overlooked for quality well detailed parts because the kits were issued over and over and the molds were in bad shape, but for their day and even into current times, the detail and shapes were great.
Consider that in the 60's they were producing kits with combustion chamber detail in their Hemi heads, Cylinder detail in their Oldsmobile blocks, etc.
For 60's and 70's SS and PS builders they produced the best wheels including fantastic Keystone Kustomag Klassics in the Sox & Martin 71 Cuda, Great Fenton slots, and even superb Motorwheel Spyders in the Eddie Shartman Maverick.
For T/A racing in 67 and 68, the Penske cars ran American Racing 5 spokes, so one of the Revell C3 Corvette race cars would be a good kit for those. In 67 they ran a flat (not the SS) hood with a NASCAR-like cowl induction air cleaner ducted into the cowl panel. They also ran yellow stripes.
So we need a base car flat hood, AR 5 spokes, Stripe decals, etc to make an accurate 67 Penske car.
Didn't the original issue of that kit include the optional parts and decals to do the Craig Breedlove Speed Record car? If so, I hope Round2 includes those parts too. What a surprising and interesting release!
