  1. Building up a '64 Wedge but I am lacking the valve covers; they look close. Thanks
  2. Thanks GTX6970. That would be great. I will PM you my mailing address.
  3. Intend on putting a 3-carb 440 in a '68 Road Runner kit. I don't know where I got the engine from. It is a 1/25 scale piece. Also the corresponding decal would be great! Any idea where I can get something like this? Thanks
  4. Very interesting oldschool. Thanks for the info. The valve cover for this kit has 2 dimples for 2 breathers. That makes me wonder if it in fact is a 392 Hemi! But I need the 426 Ramcharger 'Wedge' engine. I am building one of 3 Ramcharger cars (blown) with strait front axles, I think built in California. Not surprisingly, all 3 crashed and only 1 now exists, according to my source. Some say it was/is the first 'Funny Car'. It is painted red, white, and blue, with radiused-rear-wheel-wells. Again, thanks for the info, oldschool.
  5. I have a partial 'Ramcharger' engine from the Tony Nancy 'Double' kit. It is a Sooper kit ('63) but it is missing 1 chrome valve cover. Are there any aftermarket '426 Ramcharger' engines maybe? (This kit has beautiful wire-front wheels IMHO and (almost) exquisite dragster chassis.) I am building up the Lindberg '64 Dodge 330 kit, and need a Ramcharger engine. Thanks.
  6. I have purchased a '69 -'70 resin piece from Hart's Parts, so it is OK to close this thread.
  7. "It's a sick world and I'm a happy guy!"  Thanks dartman; you made my day!  

  8. Hi George.  Is the resin front bench seat still available?  I don't have much to trade and would rather send you cash to cover your time and mailing costs. 

  9. Hi George.  I am writing about the front bench-seat for my '68 Road Runner.  You mentioned you had a resin piece.  On this Forum you used to be able to send P.M.s, personal messages.  Now I guess this message I am sending to you will be published.  I would like to send you a PM.  Please respond.  Thanks

      First off, I apologize! I just happen to spot this message in my profile! Never came to my mailbox! Email me and I’ll send you a pic. gbojaciuk@comcast.net

  10. Yes, shoot me a pic! Is it in 1/25 scale? I like it already!
  11. Preserving emblems, so they don't get filled in with paint. Deuces ll, you lay some kind of 'aluminum foil', I don't know what kind, over the emblem and burnish it down. When done correctly, I'm told, you can then turn the foil over, and fill the cavity in the foil with a substance that will harden. Then you have a foil-casting, made of this hardened substance. Then you apply it to the model after it has been painted.
  12. Just about finished with the '68 Road Runner kit, 1/25, but I have misplaced the front bench seat! Seriously misplaced. I have looked everywhere, including boxes of other kits. Help! Thanks
  13. There is an aftermarket company, 'something Squads' that has nice police car pushbars.
  14. I enjoy the odd poem now and then myself.

  15. Hi. I'd like to try 'foil-casting'. But what brand, etc. to use? Thanks.
  16. Yeah baby!

  17. Please alert the moderator to hide this thread. I have found what I need. Thanks
  18. Greetings. I need the front suspension and the front part of the chassis from a funny car kit. Of course, the whole chassis would be good also, but I only need the front part. Thanks.
  19. Hi ACE garage guy.  Please don't act like a troll, which I feel like you are doing.  As I explained to others, my skills, frankly, are not at your acceptable level, I think.  If you can't help ME, get out of my way.  Very coy, referring to me as the OP.   I am both building a '65 Dodge AWB, and a T.F. engine from Gibson.  And, as I've asked others, don't we all build for different reasons?.  I love building model cars and I think this Forum is the greatest thing since sliced bread, if you don't mind the comparison.  I don't know about you, but I've got a whole lot of other important things going on in my life besides modeling.  How about you? Although,  I love seeing other people's amazing work on the "On The Bench" category.  I am glad others  devote so much time to building.  It is positively entertaining.  Call me a voyeur if you like.  Jeff Bolthouse, Grand Rapids, Michigan

      In ACE-Garageguy's posting, why wasn't "hell" deleted?  Are you guys the original members of the NNL?  Jeff

      Show me one post where I've ever said anything negative about you or your work. ONE. 

      Copy and paste. SHOW ME ONE. I will NOT accept being accused of something I just DID NOT DO.

      PROVE IT.

      Ace, I 'flipped out'.  No other way to say it.  So I am sorry.  Jeff

  20. Hello.  I am the OP in regards to the diameter of roll-cage tubing mentioned in the thread.  My skills are not the level where I NEED to know things like this.  We each build for different reasons, I think, don't you?  And I am not building a replica, although I have modified the chassis, especially the front chassis area.  Not only were the front-axle moved forward 10", it was moved down 4".  I have made this modifiication.  Thank you.  Jeff Bolthouse, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
