  1. Porsche 944 coupe

    Looking for a 944 coupe. Hasegawa or Italieri. I have lots to trade, mostly Mopar.
  2. 61 Plymouth Fury

    Beautiful job! You made it prettier than Plymouth could ever do. Some would say that Virgil Exner was already experiencing dementia when he designed it.
  3. First Ford Ever!

    BTW, the distributor that came with my kit was about the same size in scale as a golf ball. I used one from my parts box!
  4. First Ford Ever!

    I just built an AMT 66 mustang coupe which has the same engine instructions. Part #35 is a combination of the oil filler and the mechanical fuel pump.
  5. Looking for Ford 4.6 or 5.4 heads and valve covers

    I have the heads, intake and valve covers in resin. I was going to make a V10 and the project stalled. I think they're the 5.4, they came from an F150 kit. I can't get to them until Friday though.
  6. Slant 6 wanted

    I have a mold for the block and manifolds and could probably cast it in resin. You would have to come up with the accessories.
  7. 1/20 MPC 76 Corvette

    Very nice! I'm currently finishing up a '75 myself. Where did you get the wheels?
  8. Long Shot - 64 Cadillac hood and grill

    PM sent.
  9. Long Shot - 64 Cadillac hood and grill

    I have a built model that I would be willing to trade. Looking for 77 Monte Carlo, 65 Moebius Satellite (any version), 65 Chevelle
  10. 65 Chevelle sedan

    Does anyone have a 65 Chevelle sedan body they are willing to part with? I really only need the roof section. Glue bombs and built-ups are OK!
  11. 58 Plymouth gone bad

    Absolutely stunning! The best model I have seen this year! I don't chime in often but this one deserves applause.
  12. 727 Torqueflight transmission

    I'm beginning to like the Revell versions more and more. The oil pan is what makes it realistic. The chrome one on that 392 is pretty sweet.
  13. 727 Torqueflight transmission

    I feel your pain. The pre-painted body is nice, and the Torque-Thrust wheels are awesome. I could never get the twist out of the body, though, no matter how hard I tried. The left front wheel doesn't touch the ground.
  14. 727 Torqueflight transmission

    I think it was the snapper. It was pre-painted. The detail on the transmission is surprising.
  15. I went through all my built models trying to determine which has the best 727 Torqueflight transmission. Here are the results: #1 - Polar Lights 1965 Dodge #2 - Revell '69 Dodge Dart (on right, MPC on left, sorry for the bad focus) #3 - Johan Chrysler turbine car The rest - Lindberg '64 Dodge Johan '68 Chrysler 300 (nice torsion bars too! - NOT) Lindberg Little Red Wagon If anyone knows of others that have more detail, feel free to add.
