  1. News of Revell molding preparing in US

    Ok I have to say this.! I'm 66 and I built my first model in 1962 it was an AMT 62 Ford Fairlane and I have been building for 56 years and I have built just about every main kit out there SMP AMT Revell MPC JoHan and all the new ones I understand a lot of guys that like to see the model look as close to the real car as it can get and so do I but I have to tell you guys something in 56 years I have had friends and family and others look at my models and not one time in 56 years have I had anyone say ho man it's not right the chrome is wrong or the windows are wrong or the dip in the fender is not right it takes to dam long for this companys to get these kits out because everyone is telling them what to do and how to change them your model builders fix it when you build it it's not a perfect science they look great just get them out and maybe if we leave them alone they will get more of the old kits out that everyone keeps dreaming about.!!!

    Hi you can use the AMT 62 Belair the only real deference is in the trim witch can be changed out easy the AMT has the bubble top if your Dad had the sadden roof you can go to MCW Dave Doge he does the Biscayne with sadden roof his resin kits are very good I have bin building his kits for over 12 years now and his kit uses the AMT Belair as the doner kit. Good luck post pictures..

  11. I'm 66 and can tell you for sure NO ! AMT did not shrink wrap any kits in the 60's I live in Chicago I got and built my first model in 62 it was the AMT 62 Fairlane I got it at the corner drug store for $98c they always had the kits a lower price at the 5 and 10 it was $1.49 anyway the boxes were the old heavy style thin and had two small pieces of tape on each side of witch most were cut do to kids like me that had to look inside that's what lead up to shrink wrapping but not till the late 70's in most places.

  13. 1966 Pontiac TEMPEST

    Hi the head lights are the ones used on the 64 and 65 AMT Thunderbird I had got them from Modelhause. and the tail lights on the 64 also came from Modelhause those are the taillights from the AMT 61 Buick with the ends cut off they were the right shape with the 3 lines in them. BUT.! if you want to do the GTO with the head lights showing you can contact Kevin at Missing Link Resin he makes the parts you need to do that I have them and they look great.
