  1. The 1/24 Scale History Story?

    The only model I have an objection to in 1/24 is the Revell/Monogram 1970 Boss Mustang. The features appear "blunted" and the body itself just doesn't "cut it". I see a lot of Dyno Don and Bob Glidden '70 Mustang Pro Stock renditions based on this 1/24th body. It just doesn't portray the real car lines of the actual cars. I am in the process of using an AMT 1970 Mustang body(1/25) from their Funny Car kit as it has better lines with a "sharper" profile. It is part of the stuff I've accumulated to make a "Dyno Don" tribute car.
  2. Johan kits

    Norman, try E-Bay for any used and like new kits. I have found a cornucopia of old(er) and unavailable kits in BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH good, if not perfect condition. I picked up the Jo-Han Mustang Funny Car kit(M/T 71 Mustang) open but for less than the new model prices and it was 100%. Another was a Revell Kenny Berstein Tempo Funny (85%, nothing I can't fix) PLUS a Prudomme Firebird funny body with interior tin and glass. Had to quit after a few weeks as I was buying out of control. Give E-Bay a shot.
  3. Flying Dutchman Charger III Funny Car

    THIS JUST IN! I was mindlessly surfing Google when the Charger III funny car drifted into my thinking. Guess what I found??? A company called Speed City Resins has the BODY ONE PIECE AND WHEELBASE CORRECT! AND......they supply the lengthened chassis frame rails to match the body's wheelbase PLUS tin work, "laydown" roll bar, all body pieces and interior pan. Alas, no windshield, a real challenge to make one, but anything else needed can come from any of the Polar Lights 60's style funny car kits. It's $42.00 and well worth it. PLUS I ordered it last Friday and got it yesterday(Monday). Now THAT'S service! Check them out!
  4. Flying Dutchman Charger III Funny Car

    Gerald, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! I have been looking for kits that I remembered had unique parts that I need for projects still to be started. Then I remembered your Charger III find on E-Bay so I thought I'd give it a shot. WOW! I found a JoHan M/T Mustang F/C model that has THE perfect chassis configuration for my Beach City Corvette F/C dream project PLUS a bunch of dirt cheap kits that I couldn't walk away from. My wife will shoot me when she sees all these come in the mail, but I'm simply a model junky and have been for 50+ years. Thanks again for the idea.
  5. 99' Firebird Pro Mod....

    Bill, I am humbled. Knockout paint and graphics and underpinnings. Detail is awesome! I hope I can come an iota close with my twin turboed version of same kit but I doubt it
  6. Lost Resin pro Mod Bodies

    I picked up the MPC Pepsi Chevy Laguna NASCAR kit. Gonna turn it into a Street Outlaw beast. These bodies are just too rare and cool to let go by. Think I'll buy several more. Remember, styrene started all this craziness.
  7. 99' Firebird Pro Mod....

    Very, very well done! Love the carbon fiber look on the blower hat and valve covers, how? Got the same kit only called Match Racer and am in the process of turning it into a twin turboed BBC monster. Actually I bought 2 of them so I had a chassis to put in a 2010 Mustang Pro Stock(pre-scoopless).
  8. Reher-Morrison Firebird

    Absolutely beautiful! Love the use of the CR round opening Pro Scoop.
  9. LSR Project - Concept and Pics

    I understand your situation totally Tim. I've got 7 model cars I have built to gift my best friends from work. I had intended to give them to them last December but got behind. The weather in Iowa has been way too humid to spray paint outside and i have till next Saturday(8/13) for the ideal window to present them to my buds. Each represents a street machine they own or one of the cars from "Street Outlaws" that fit their personalities. My way of a retirement present to them to say "Thank You" for all their years of friendship. When I finish them, I will post pix.
  10. Revell Foose C7 Corvette

    I've been looking at this kit as the raw material for my "ideal" Pro Stock/Mod car. With the NHRA"s silly new "scoopless" rules, I think I'll aim for the more attractive Pro Mod class. Thank you for giving me a look at the kit in made form.
  11. 1967 Chevrolet Impala SS

    Yuri, my friend, you have hit the proverbial modeler's home run! This 67 is beyond beautiful, it is exquisite. I remember them new as a kid in Iowa and how a car so cool looking could sound so evil. You have done them a great justice. Well done sir!
  12. detomaso pantera gts

    Thank you Ismail for this beautiful rendition of one of my top 5 favorite cars of all time! Sat in in one back in '72 at our local Lincoln-Mercury dealer. Just a wide eyed 16 year old fascinated with a 351C powered Italian torpedo( he actually let me sit in it for half an hour; really tight around the driver's feet due to the tucked in front tires.). What kit is this as I would love to HotRod this beast(Blown BOSS 429 for power)?
  13. Lost Resin pro Mod Bodies

    Thank you Henry, I was really getting Jonesy to build the Chevelle as I owned a street/strip '69 SS 396 from '77-79 and love the '69 Chevelle body.
  14. I know I saw, at one time in the not to distant past, resin renditions of the 68/ 69 Chevelle body ala Pro Mod and a 74(?) Laguna front El Camino Pro Mod body. Am I slipping into senility or did they exist? And can they still be found? Thanks for any help.
