      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Tom, Maybe the next one you get will be the distressed body version with the Rat Rod Box art.

    Beautiful Engine. I am not familiar with Henry J's but were the window cranks, and door handles that long?

    I never Said that Revell was under any obligation to Provide Specific Information. My original post only brought out that the secrecy is fueling some speculation of what truly happened, and if the kit will ever be produced again.

    We have some issues involving this kit we cannot discuss at the moment.
    This statement sounds like the Beginning of a Secret. I have heard it said differently before, But that ended with DooDa Doo, and began with Listen do you want know a secret.

    My Issue is why is there so much secrecy on Revells part. If there was Sabotage of the molds while in possesion of the Chinese Manufacturer. Why not just say so, and move on. Why let the problem fester into all this speculation about what happened, or what is going to happen. None of us here can change what has been already done. I have three original kits in my possesion, at the current today price that they are being sold at. I will not be buying anymore.

    I think I have a complete body, that has the body,hood, and firewall. I am looking for a hood to an AMT 70 Z/28, not the Baldwin motion,as well as a 1/25 NASCAR complete front suspension.

    Hood Needed
    I found that the Hood for my AMT 70 1/2 Z/28 Camaro some how warped in a dished manner. If anybody has an Extra new or used let me Know. We can work it out.

    About 1981 while I was in High School an older Classmate had a beautiful 68/69 El Camino that he had painted a nice dark blue metallic, with Crager 5 spoke S/S  wheels, truly a nice car. After Graduation He inlisted in the Army, and while at basic training His father sold the car. Needless to say Bob was not a Happy Guy when He got back in to town.

    Steer me in the Right direction
    I have a bagged kit of a Revell 53 Chevy. It has only the straight axle included all other steering parts are gone. What would be a better suggestion for a replacement IFS front suspension?

    Yeah there are some Mouths. That quite frankly. I am amazed that Some people even kiss their momma with. So a spoon has got to be tough.

    What bothers Me today, and other days, is when my paint jobs look better on My practice spoons, than My actual model.

    I had wanted to get a short bed 60 f100. But held back because. I knew there was a flood of others, wanting some of the finest resin cast cars in the world. Maybe someday I will get another opportunity. The Holthause's deserve their rest, and retirement.

    probably cut as close as possible to get the bulk off , then use a dremel at slow speed to get closer, and finish with a sanding stick.

    As stated before engines sold by dealerships, and parts houses, come in a variety of ways. The first is the engine block without heads or sheet metal, just the basic internal Parts are there. This is referred to as a Shortblock
    Second is an upgrade, all of the Shortblock parts,with the addition of cylinder heads. This is referred to as a Long block.
    Third is a little more complete with the Longblock,an Shortblock, plus all the sheet metal parts freeze plugs installed as well as other parts like a water pump usually no intake manifold. This is referred to a a complete engine.
    Fourth is an with all parts necessary to run from carb to pan water pump to distributor. Just add oil and coolant after install pretty much. This is referred to as a Crate Engine.
    at no time should an engine be called a motor because motors are electric.

    What brand of wheel is that five spoke. I have never seen one in, 1-1 with a ball bearing for a cap before.
