    I've used the ultra bright chrome for a few years now, I've never had an issue with it to be honest even though others have.

    Had a couple of days of work this week and I managed to put this one together in 3 days which must be some sort of record for me!. 
    This is a great kit for its age, couple of slight fit issues the rear bumper looks like it has a big gap in the photo yet it isn't that bad in person ?, and the hardtop isn't the best fit especially the tailgate, but this is just minor. I had a blast building and detailing this one. I decided to build it like the box artwork which is very nice in itself, unfortunately I had to use a different building firm as the Universal Construction ones fell apart.

    Its a prewired distributor from Fatkid models, the wires are slightly thicker than the usual m.a.d ones I normally use, I agree.
    Thanks for all the comments, I really appreciate them.

    Finished this one last night, one of my favourite kits of all time and I've built a few over the years. This is the older promodeler release that has the incorrect seats and other faults. 
    I built it box stock apart from adding a prewired distributor,  the paint is Holts rattle can red. Had a bit of fun with the 16 year old decal sheet, they broke up quite a lot, especially the tyre whitelines . 
    I'm happy with the way it turned out and no doubt I'll build another again in the future.

    Got this very cool AMT 32 Ford Vicky today, it's from around 1966/7 the Bonnie and Clyde edition. Check out the bullet holes in the box top, love the box art too.
  12. Mr Stock added a post in a topic Adding detail, firing order   

    I go for the "parted hair" look, If I was building contest models I would research firing order and do it correctly, but as I just build them and they go on the shelf, they never need to start and drive off so I dont bother with it. Ive added wires and that is acceptable to me otherwise I just get too bogged down and build even slower than I do now.
    But however............each to their own, I certainly admire those that put the effort in.
  13. Mr Stock added a post in a topic Which Model Gave You a Whoopin'?   

    The old IMC 48 Ford Convertible, this was back about 14 years ago and man did that kit test my patience, it didn't beat me but it also didn't look very nice at all.
  14. Mr Stock added a post in a topic revell 4Q2016 Release Annoucement   

    I'm pretty excited about the Bronco that's very good news, the low rider Cadillac can that be built stock from the kit or is it strictly a lowrider? .

    And the curtain closes .......
    Just looked this morning and The website is now permanently closed and they are also no longer taking mail order.
    I did manage to get my last order in a month or so ago.
    I wish them all the best in their retirement and for their massive contribution to the hobby over the years, but they wont be able to relax for a long while yet by the sounds of it.
