    • 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.

    It would be awesome to have a 65 Nova kit out again and one that can be built stock or street or all out drag and if Moebius is doing it you know it will be a very detailed kit but you say it's only been 3D printed and not tooled yet HO BOY so maybe we will see it some time in 2020 or 2021.?????. Hell I'm 65 I may not be able to hold the air brush by then.!!!!

    There is a second way you can convert the pick up or the convertible to the hard top if you want to stay with plastic you can use the Model King 70 Buick it's the same roof GM used in 69 and 70 on most of there full size cars and you will have glass that fits for the front and back.

  14. rickcaps55 added a post in a topic 1961 Ford Sunliner   

     Wow ! for a model that was built some 30 years ago it's awesome I would leave it alone and not touch it in any way. I'm 65 and only have 3 or 4 models that made it through the years  I started when I was 10 in 1962 my first kit was the AMT 1962 Fairlane  I still have the model and about 23 years ago I found a unbuilt one in the box witch I will get to some day.
  15. rickcaps55 added a post in a topic '70 Bonneville converted   

    Hi I like the look of the Chevy roof on the Bonneville it looks more formal GM should have used it. I used the roof from the 70 Buick and made it in to a Catalina with some trim change.
