      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    I bought a couple of the C7R kits and if the possible 3rd party LM decals come from a respected North American source, I will likely buy additional kits.
    YES the brake rotor issue is unfortunate but I feel it is correctable. What has me FAR more disappointed is that according to my reference photos, the tail light lenses should be clear rather than red tinted.
    I feel that this is a larger and more visible error than the brake rotors and probably well outside of the skill level to correct of the majority of modelers. The "solution" for this error (admittedly without a lot of thought given) probably is to use the existing parts as a mold and vac-form replacements using clear plastic.
    It would be a great help if someone at Revell-Monogram read this and would be able to offer proper color replacements with some sort of proof of purchase.

    Commercial Raceways and Clubs Map
    A map has been created to allow model car racing commercial tracks and clubs worldwide to post the details and contact information about themselves.

    Check it out here: http://j.mp/2dtrKba If your local raceway or club is not listed, please feel free to add it. The only thing that we ask is that when you add raceways or clubs, that you are sure that they are open/in business and still holding regular races.
    Thanks in advance!

    I have ordered from Pattos many times and have never had an issue with shipping. It usually takes about a week from when he gets payment to me.

    Joe- I do not know if Pattos (Bruce Paterson) sells on eBay. I would check his "Pattos Place" website.

    Bruce Paterson (Pattos) has dozens of decal sets suitable for these kits.
    It seems like his products are seldom mentioned when people are looking for NASCAR decals. I would love to know why this is?

    Bruce Patterson has several Fusion decals currently available.

    Just some quick photos using my iPhone; usually I use natural light but it has been snowing all day! Certainly they could be better quality but hopefully they will answer the "what's in the box" questions that you may have.

    Tomorrow I will photograph and post the contents of the kit on the trees. Hopefully this will clear up any questions anyone still has.
    BTW; did anyone else notice that the top of the box says 70 Challenger and the side of the box says both 70 and 71 Challenger?

    I am amazed that the top couldn't have been corrected to "no vinyl"?
  9. MG Brown added a post in a topic First Detailed Look and Kit Commentary - new Moebius '65 Plymouth Satellite   

    I enjoyed the "how to" article showing the conversion of the kit to a USAC Stocker.  It's a crying shame that there are apparently no plans to offer this kit as a stock car model. If there happens to be a change of heart, I would wish for Paul Goldsmith's #99

    I will definitely buy at least 4-6 of the Fords. Plenty of alternate schemes in Pattos decal selection.

    Glad to see that R-M is doing NASCAR subjects again, regardless of the level of detail. Hopefully they will be "about" the level of detail that the previously released Impalas were.

    I'll definitely purchase several and use them for slot car bodies and perhaps a shelf model or 2 (that was a "Blue Deuce" reference, son.). I see Pattos has several 2015 decos for both drivers.

    This is on my "to build" list using the recently reissued Cyclone, Powerslide Decals and chassis from the 1969 Mercury Stock Car kit.

    Jon- love the flare job. Hope to see that finished soon.

    This kit includes a surprising number of "extra" parts; I'd wager that a version of the kit with street stock and drag options will be released eventually.

    The recent Round2 reissue of the Allison Cyclone is a NASCAR only kit.
