  1. I also have big problems with the execution of the grille, headlamps, the shape of the grille opening and leading edge of the hood. The overall effect is too flat as viewed from the top. The grille almost then seems too flush as a result and from straight on front view, the bottom of the hood that forms the opening is too arched. The headlights are also too large, and too close together
  2. Administration, please move to the Wanted section. Apologies
  3. I have a super nice 65 Barracuda annual kit, built and disassembled, but missing the chassis and wheels to (partial?) trade. Alternately, I have a new-in-the-box 63 Valiant Signet friction promo in light yellow, may have very light scratches here and there from storage, but overall a very, very nice shelf model as-is. Craftsman kit must be fairly complete, body/trim wise, chassis is unimportant. What have you?
  4. These are really, really nice builds of these kits. Just beautiful
  5. Assuming that it uses material rods of the same diameters commonly found in Evergreen and Plastruct round stock, I can't see why it wouldn't. ABS and Styrene should have pretty similar melting points.
  6. This video will give you some idea of how it can be used. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29dsCVFI0HM
  7. I have seen a couple of YouTube videos on these gadgets. Kind of like a tiny hot glue gun, but has an automatic feed for the medium. Just thinking aloud what someone could do with one. The one that I saw used ABS rod, but I would not be surprised if Evergreen round styrene stock might work as well
  8. It's a common mistake to make but the company that did the GM conversions was called NEAPCO. They made driveline parts clear into the 80's at least. I bought NEAPCO brand U-Joints at my local mom and pop parts house in 1985 for my Pinto
  9. That's essentially what it was. Can Am in those days was wide open to experimentation, being pretty much a Formula Libre class. Still, I would not want to lose an argument with some Armco Barrier in that car. That would be a quick route to a burial plot
  10. I'll go out on a limb and vote for your first choice in wheels, the custom ones from the 64 Cutlass annual. I think that they lend a more aggressive visual interest to the car, and maintain the mid-sixties vibe
  11. All I can say here is WOW! I am slayed by your efforts here Steve! Fantastic work.
  12. Because, in that period of time, the AMT annuals (and promos alike), where a convertible variant was offered, never had hardtop specific interior tubs tooled up for them. The hardtops invariably had a convertible tub supplied in the kit
  13. At the risk of hijacking/derailing this thread, I would love to see "what's inside the box" of that Premier kit!
  14. Thanks for pointing out the differences between the sedans and the coupes. Now that I am looking at pictures of the coupes, I see how the front is extended and the nose is slightly more sloped along the fender tops.
