    Thanks for the advice, comments, and photo.

    The '71 T-bird sounds interesting; they had some pretty 'outstanding styling'.  Always wanted to build a limo!?

    Hi Falcon Wagon.  This '70 Super Bee does not say anywhere what the scale is!  I would say 1/24.  For now I will pass on this Johan part.  Thanks.

    NASCAR valve covers that cover the spark plugs
    I have 2 Monogram NASCAR kits, both with Chevy engines.  The valve covers have a 'cover' over the spark-plug areas and ignition wireing.  Should the detailing include the wires and boots?  Thanks.

    I've ordered once, relatively quick delivery, lots of interesting parts like 'turbo charged DOHC 4-cyl. engine.  They are good IMO.

    Corvette transaxle 1/25 or 1/24 scale
    Can anyone suggest a Corvette kit (least expensive) that would have good detailing on the transaxle?

    Did you find a good sheet of decals yet?
  12. fiatboy added a post in a topic 1/24th scale Pro-Touring Tires and Wheels. Gauging Interest   

    I like the design of a 2 piece wheel so the center can be painted separately. I am interested in wheels/tires that would be authentic for "sports car racers". Also, tall, narrow tires for salt-flat racers.

    The aftermarket company, "Replicas and Miniatures" in Maryland has Webers, part no. P-11A. They were $8.50.

    The aftermarket company in Maryland, "Replicas and Miniatures" has Weber carbs. Part no. P-11A. I guess they can be used as either downdraft or sidedraft. They were $8.00.
