    I have a good 85% of his kits they are good kits and are easy to work with. He does not chrome his parts you can send them out I have done that with some and the other's I go to modelhause and use there chrome and glass I have 2 of the Larks they are a repop of the old Johan kit but all in all Dave is a great guy to deal with and I like his kit's.

  5. rickcaps55 added a post in a topic Vintage air condition set-up.   

    Hi yes there was 1 or 2 AMT kits from the early to med 60's they were ford kit's 3-in-1 that had the ford dealer add on air. The unit was the typical ford rounded on the sides and had 4 round vents. My 66 Mustang had the dealer add-on I had build a rep of my mustang and got the air unit from the AMT kit. If I remember the kit I will repost if no one can come up with it. I have close to 200 vintage AMT and Johan kits from the 60's I will check them. I know Modelhause makes the one's from the 40's and 50's the one's that would hang on the outside of the window not go under the dash.

  9. rickcaps55 added a post in a topic Who has the best redlines in the market?   

    Modelhause has the best Red lines all the tires they make are soft and the white or red lines come out to be painted. They have the same tires showen on the Charger in both red and white wall they are the same tire that was put in to the MPC and AMT kit's back in the 60's and 70's I keep a supply of both on hand. I just got a couple of packs of the new AMT red lines and I have to say they are nice and the fact that they are hollow make them work wit the new Rev kits they fit the 67 Camaro wheels very nice just like the AMT white letters tires.

    Hi I see were your trying to go with this but if you send them out to be plated the parts are cleaned very good by the guy doing the chrome so any masking will be cleaned off. I strip my parts drill out the lights and some times the grill clean them up and have them chromed when I get them back it's just a matter of gluing in the lights and putting the clear plastic on them.
