    I believe I have it.

    Let us know how you get on with fitting the dash top to the main dashboard part.

    There's been some bashing, but also some valid criticism.  Warpage is clearly a problem with Moebius kits - I opened a '65 Satellite yesterday to find the body twisted.  I think I can fix it, but I shouldn't have to.  I would think a large percentage of customers will be turned off buying other Moebius kits if they run into problems like this.
     
    Edit - also just noticed the decals are missing from this kit.  Strike two, Moebius.

    Electric water pumps weren't uncommon.  This Willys has one for each bank.

    I bet it was never raced in that form.  It might have started out as a Super Stocker, assuming the Hemi is original (edit - almost certainly not: http://racehemi.maxwedge.com/topics/hardtops.php), then probably a bracket racer in the '70s as suggested by Gary.  Now it's been made into a wannabe "Gasser".  Shame.

    Håkan, that's nice.  My cars are boring: BMW 330i and a Mini Cooper.  I need an old V8.

    AMT 1961 Chevy Pickup Hood
    Wanted: hood for AMT 1961 Chevy pickup.  This hood has the "Apache 10" emblems on the sides, so I'm specifically after the '61 part, not a '60. 
    Trade preferred, but open to discussions.

    I draw up decals in DrawPlus SE.  It's not as powerful as Illustrator, but it's a vector graphics program and it's free...  It works the same way as Harry outlined above - import the photo, resize it, and draw the decals on a separate layer.

    Nice job so far. I wouldn't have given this kit a second look, but it has potential.  The engine looks like a lazy copy of the Pontiac from the AMT '36 Ford.  Far from exact, but I'd say more Pontiac than anything else.

    The only thing I would point out is that it appears you removed the character line from the front fender along with the trim.  It should still have a rib on the fender, like this:

    These look familiar.  Nice work. 
  12. dodgefever added a post in a topic AMT Mustang Mach 1, Super Stang, Autolite Special   

    I wish they could bring back the first version, with the Appliance Apache mags.  You can keep your Pro Touring rubber bands and 20" wheels; for me, nothing looks better than those red or gold striped bias plies on 15" mags.
    Were those Apache wheels in any other kits?   I'd like to get hold of some.

    I have the Sand Hog kit.  It's the Surf Woody minus the bodywork, with the old AMT Indy tyres: two large and four huge ones.
  14. dodgefever added a post in a topic Moebius 67-72 Ford Pick-up news   

    The chassis and running gear seems to have been mostly derived from the old AMT F350.  That would explain why the Moebius test shots had a Dana axle, the front suspension radius arms mounting outboard of the frame rails the same way as the AMT (should be inboard) and the near-identical parts breakdown and patterns of the FE engine and transmission.

    Coil-overs.  I could happily live without seeing ever another pair of those fake spindle mount wheels.  Ugh.
