  1. That looks like a decent kit, but just nit-picking the opening in the hood is too far back. It would never open without hitting the scoop on the real thing, plus it makes it look like the engine istoo far forward. The headlights do give it a frog-look by sticking out like that but otherwise it is cool.
  2. Sorry guys, I own a real '64 Skylark. I should have made that clear. My original '64 (my first car) in primer and my current car in the garage.
  3. I have a '64 Skylark that I'm restoring and have had several of them over the years so that stood out to me immediately. I have not, however, had the AMT kits, just the Revell Z-16 kit to compare and the Z-16 roof has a lot of issues. What's funny is they got the vent window right.
  4. They fixed the C-pillar! The one on the Chevelle Z-16 kit (they have the same roof) is wrong. Now I don't have to correct that one for my Skylark. Ugh, the vent window doesn't angle back like that. Well, it's a better starting point.
  5. I think what you're doing is a fantastic thing, but that '64 Buick Skylark convertible is a barrel of errors. I have that one too and I'm just starting to try to figure out how to correct it. There isn't a panel or edge on it that's correct.
  6. I hope it's just for the month, Danny has always had great products. PSH needs to invest in a pressure pot and spend more time on their molds. Just saying from experience. Joseph at Fireball has some really nice truck tires. I bought a handful of different ones a while back. My only gripe with his site is he doesn't have preview pics so you have to open the links to see what they look like.
  7. Stunning, definitely. It's a level of quality for the rest of us to strive for!
  8. Awesome! Great job on the look!
  9. Tom, We spent most of a Toledo NNL weekend with Bob several years ago. He told me how they created that box art which was pretty cool. He also signed my '57 kit box along with an original '55 Chevy box and told the story about the names on the side of that car which was hilarious. Sounds like they had a lot of fun with it back in the day.
  10. I know of one, possibly two coming soon from 'lil bro's shop of a more vintage style.
  11. I disagree, as long as it's not a $30 kit. It seems to be a good one for unskilled builders and people who just don't want to spends hours detailing the engine bay but want a nice looking shelf model.
  12. I got mine today. The biggest difference between the '67 & '68 is in fact the taillight and rear bumper. The '67 has the rectangular taillights in a panel above the bumper, the '68 has round(ish) lights in the bumper. So there would need to be some decent mods to make this kit a '68 but the front end wouldn't be that bad.
  13. Does anyone make a '68 conversion kit? I want to build one like I had many years ago.
