      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

  1. I just did a quick overlay of those two images. It looks as if the respective front and rear fender bulges match up well with the stock body, so the length was added in the doors. The gills are moved back so the rear edge is about where the door line would have been. With the door handles lined up, the rear axle appears to be in the stock location relative to the body, with the wheelwell enlarged all round.

    Nice job. Where are the rear tyres from? I could do with some like that.
  3. AMT's 55 Corvette Gasser7/9 progress

    It would be in Modified Sports, not Gas class, so with a 409, maybe AM/SP, or just into BM/SP if you added some ballast... I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.
  4. Johan 1963 Plymouth Fury. A Little More Progress.

    It should fit the Fury, but the '63 - '64 Dodges were on a 119" wheebase; three inches longer than Plymouth. The Lindberg Dodge would be the one to use for those.
  5. Rockford files 1977 firebird

    Not sure if you were replying to me, but I was referring to the Firebird.
  6. Rockford files 1977 firebird

    Nice work so far. I presume that hood is designed to fit the old MPC kit? I'd be tempted to use that as a reference and cut down the corners of the windshield and the door tops to match - it looks like Revell cocked up (again) and made the top of the doors too high. The door window should be noticeably lower than the rear window.

    My fault, I was confused and ended up looking at the Missing Link site mentioned in the previous post. Their site is really abysmal. The MCW site is better, but still looks like something from a Geocities webring circa 1999...
  8. 64 Hemi Savoy

    How did you find that? Their website is an absolute trainwreck... aside from the awful clashing colours and layout, some of the links only work from the home page. I gave up looking. If that body is made to fit the Lindberg kit, I would check the cowl and windshield header. The Lindberg windshield is much too straight top and bottom (like their '67 Olds); the old Johans were much more accurate in that area.
  9. AMT Avanti issue date ?

    That's the atrocious Palmer kit, nothing to do with AMT.
  10. For next time: the front wheels have twelve spokes - you're supposed to clock the wheel halves so the spacing is equal, not have them directly in line.
  11. To be fair to him, the Revell parts pack instructs the builder to mount the distributor (a Flamethrower, IIRC) at the rear on the blown option. They tooled up a separate timing cover for the blown version and they could easily have made it with an angled mag drive, as was usually used in the real world. Instead, they put a hole in the back of the blower manifold...
  12. What kind of car is this

    Unless you were here when they were new, you'd be unlikely to. They were notorious rot boxes.
  13. AMT Parts Packs Suggestions

    Like this thread and most of the ideas within.
  14. Round2 for 2018

    I can live with the old style chassis because you can't see it when the model is right side up, but the half baked wrecker bed is another story. Any kind of tow truck or fire apparatus on a 1/2 ton chassis is plain wrong in any case.. . it would be nice to have a proper 1 ton truck, but that's so niche I'd be amazed if it ever happens.
