    Hi yes they closed down for a couple of weeks to get all the back orders out and get ready for the show as soon as they reopen you place your order I have been buying from them for a very long time get the parts when they open if they do close next year it will be a big blow to the modelers I hope someone will take them over and keep the company going they have every part that AMT ever had in there kit's. I wish them luck in there retirement they had a great run and a great product.

    Modelhause has the conversion kit I have it it's a nice kit and Bandit resin has the resin body if you do not want to rework the 69 body I have the bandit resin body it's a very nice kit and the Modelhause has all the chrome the dash and hood and tail lights in it's kit. You can go to Kieth Marks for the decals.

    Hi the resin kit you are showing is from a resin guy called AF/X Resin I have 2 of those kits I got from them 8 years ago they were $20.00 each he was a great resin guy and had a ton of deferent hoods and other trans kits but they started having all kinds of problems and people were not getting orders they faded away. It's to bad they did make a nice product.

     I just got my kit yesterday I'm looking for word to this build I have to say Moebius did it again it's an awesome kit.! But I do have one thing that I found to be not up to how they have done there great detail in other kits and that is the Taillights I was really set back on that I just hate to paint in taillights in the past years I have gone to Modelhause to get the first kit lights for the repop's of all the old AMT kit's. But like I said this kit was a long time coming and it's a great kit.

    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.

  13. 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.
