    Thanks guys!  Here are a couple more pics I shot this morning.
     
    Yes, it was the only way I could figure out how to get that 70s-tastic pattern
    I drew up all the decals for this build.  The white stripes were printed by Joseph at Fireball Modelworks, and I printed the black stripes and the seats myself. I made one big pattern and cut the individual panels from that. The seats were painted white where I wanted the pattern to show up, so I could cut the decals a little large and have any overlap completely disappear against the black.

    The Man with the Golden Gun AMC Hornet
    This was just a quick upgrade to a Jo-Han promo. The paint was in pretty good shape, but the chrome was badly roughed up.  So I cleaned & polished the body, redid the trim (and added what was missing) with BMF, swapped wheels & seats with some from my parts box, gave it clear headlight lenses, and did some paint & decal work:

    I figure I could even recast it if need be, but I wanted to start here if I could.

    Ecto-1A Computer Screen Wanted
    Looking for part #11, the C.R.T. Screen from AMT's Ecto-1A kit. I can trade for the replacement part from the ParaGraphix PE set, or if there's anything else you're looking for just let me know.  Thanks!

    That's pretty cool, I'm not always a fan of the classic "Kustoms" but this one works for me!

    Nicely done, I always liked these Buicks!
  14. spencer1984 added a post in a topic Advice on AMT / MPC Dodge Charger and Daytona kits   

    I haven't tried that exact combo, but I have done the 69-to-70 conversion and found out that it's not just a straight parts swap (also, stay away from the AMT F&F kit unless you want to do some major correction work). The front fenders on the 70 Charger were taller and wider at the front to accept the updated grille/bumper.  It can definitely be done, but be prepared to do some cutting, bending, and filling.

    Thanks all for the suggestions!  I found out that RMCM makes them, based off of the 1970 Blazer/Jimmy kits.  I have a set ordered, and they should be here in a few weeks.
    Greg, I'm putting them on the SBC that will be powering my Deuce of Spades '32 Ford...so they'll be right out in the open.  That's why I wanted to make sure I got the right ones.
