    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    Anyone know if wal mart stocks these? Would like to build a granada gold with a black vinyl top.

    Thanks for your comments. Pretty happy with the kit. the interior tub fits right up inside the body flush with the window openings with no sanding/ filing/grinding. The only trimming to be done is on the chassis, the upper rear wheelhouses need removal and a quick trim on the topside of the fuel tank for the dual facing rear seat floor to clear. Everything else falls right into place. I didn't have to mess with the stance/ wheelbase at all. The taillights came out a little blocky, I need to taper the top and bottom to be more accurate before production. Look for a Squire as well. Next up: 68 Squire, 66 Colony Park, 57 Windsor 2 dr. ht. 57 New Yorker wagon. The Chryslers will build off the AMT 57 300 and have opening hoods.

    Here's a couple of built ups. Yes I will offer the bumper/ grill unit. The wheelcovers are from Scenes Unlimited. I will do a better taillight before the kit hits production.

    I have a few of these built up to check fit quality and such. I can post pics if you all would like to see them. Keep in mind the kits won't  be available for a while.

    I have a low mile bucket seat 72 Boat Tail Riviera if Revell, Mobius, or AMT wants the measure it.

    Thank you for your compliment. Yes David, theres a wiggle on the left 1/4 panel. I'll correct them by hand before they are sold. Having an issue on the master with resin reacting with styrene turning the styrene into a thick liquid. Thats what caused the wiggle.

    Thank you Mike. All that is required is an AMT 66 Galaxie kit. I'm planning on having plated parts.

    Thanks Gordon. Been busy working on other masters as well. Here's the photos of the completed project ready for molds. The interior pics can be seen earlier in this thread.

    Finally finished the master up. The first grill I did posted here just looked worse and worse the more I looked at it so did it over from scratch. Will show pics soon. I will be selling kits, Not ready to do so at this time. Be patient my friends.

    Again misquoting me. I see your circular logic to defend your friend who is copying other's work, and your personal attacks on me because I'm letting others know what he is doing.  If you can't understand why one would be hesitant to create a new kit for fear of being copied there's no use trying to have a discussion with about it. I'm done with this.... Please feel free to attack

    Kerry, where did I talk about how good my stuff is and where did I talk about how good Modelhaus stuff is? I knew you had to be tight with Pedro. Please provide me your ebay handle so I can block you from bidding on my products when you get tired of buy repop junk from your buddy.

    Bob, I never condemned the whole board. Just going after the supporters of bootleg products. To those who think I made a blanket condemnation I do apologize.
