  1. Woods Racing Javelin of George Follmer

    All AMC V8 Engines from 290 through the 401 have the same block dimensions. In fact, the block casting has the displacement cast into the passenger side of the block. So any kit AMC engine would be the basis for the T/A engine externally. In 1970 the SCCA changed the engine rules to encourage more manufacturers to participate. Prior to 1970, the rules stated that any engine of 5 liters (305 ci) was eligible for the series. That's why the early Dart cars used the 273 ci as its basis for their T/A engine and the Ford used the 289 then the 302 as it's basis for their T/A engine. Chevrolet used the bore of a 327 and the stroke of the 283 to come up with the 302 as homologated in the Z/28 for their entrant. In 1970 the rule was changed to allow a manufacturer to de-stroke an existing production engine to fit the 5-liter limit. That's why the Z/28 in 1970 used the LT1 350 rather than continue with the limited production (and expensive to produce in small numbers) 302. Chrysler Corp and AMC could now enter the series without resorting to homologating a special 5-liter engine, although AMC did have a 304 ci engine they could have used. AMC did homologate a heavy duty block in the Mark Donahue edition SST Javelin. It was a 360 ci engine with a special block with thicker webbing that would accept aftermarket 4 bolt main caps even though the production engine still utilized 2 bolt caps. Ok, so after this long winded post, the bottom line is any available AMC engine would be a good start for your T/A Javelin build. Nice start by the way.
  2. Buddy Baker's 1980 Oldsmobile 442 in 1/25th scale.

    Wow! It must be getting close. This is the first place taking preorders, and discounted too! https://freetimehobbies.com/1-25-salvinos-jr-models-buddy-baker-nascar-plastic-model-kit-preorder/

  4. And on top of this kit, you would really need Harold Bradford's GT-40 engine kit to look more correct
  5. Golden Commandos 1965 Plymouth

    Best price I've seen so far on the Butch Leal and Golden Commandos Kits: Leal: https://www.ebay.com/itm/323031753901 GC: https://www.ebay.com/itm/323032362370 I know it's an auction, but they are starting low.
  6. Bolt heads

    These are a direct recast of the Verlinden Bolts. I don't know if Verlinden still sells them, but they are a direct copy.
  7. Revel Ford GT Le Mans 2016

    RoG jumped the gun and released their info. That's why the kit # is RoG. The U.S. kept their mouths shut, but RoG let the cat out of the bag before they were supposed to.
  8. Revel Ford GT Le Mans 2016

    It's real. U.S. kit to release first followed by RoG version. No firm release date.
  9. Revell 2017 Releases

    Foose FD-100 kit in my hands right now. They're out there my LHS got them in yesterday. It looks like a really nice kit.
  10. Silicone rubber reacting badly, unsure why?

    Yeah, as was said in a post above, I doubt Shapeways adds anything to the printing material, but who knows what it's made from. Perhaps something in the chemical makeup is reacting with the RTV. Sealing the master is a good start if it can be done without destroying the detail. As was already suggested,testing it on some RTV before making another mold is a good idea.
  11. Silicone rubber reacting badly, unsure why?

    If the master contains sulfur it will react with certain RTVs. Platinum cure RTV is very sensitive to sulfur and some other substances. I try to only use a tin cure RTV as it is more tolerant of most substances. I use Kleen Klay if I need clay to make a mold because it is sulfur free. I have no idea of the chemical makeup of the 3D part, but I would assume it's something in it that is reacting with your RTV.
  12. The artwork for those decals was done by Russ Quaterman and produced by Microscale, who at one time, and may still, print Slixx decals. When I had those decals done (printed on the same sheet as the Gapp & Roush Pinto P/S decals and then cut apart) the Slixx guys saw them at Microscale they told me they liked them alot.
  13. WARNING!

    Us Mac users just go on with our day as most attacks are aimed at Windows. They go after the big fish...J/K. Seriously, UBlock Origin is one of the best as blockers I have used. It not only blocks all of the ads (I disable it on the sites I believe in and want to support) but, it blocks the ads at the beginning of YouTube videos. I run this and the Ad Block+ plugins for both FireFox and Chrome and I never see an ad unless I want to.
  14. Ahh, answers my question. Guess I should read!
