    Turned out very nice in that color. And nice job detailing the trim around the side windows.....I'm working on this kit and those trim lines are not very wide and not necessarily easy to detail. 

    thank you

    Arr!  She looks nice, matey!  Rig her up & she'll be ready for the Spanish Main.

    thank you 
    the model is finished i do not even plan to tempt the rigging   never done it before and i do not know enough about rigging  plus would not even know how the rigging would be layed out  not sure what type of real world ship this is  and it could be a generic design  that revell came up with  
    also this is the first non 20th century boat i have  built

    Looks good, nice job! And seconding Gloozalot - the only engine you could get in these barges was a V8. If you went with one of the smaller cars that year, the only six available in '76 was the 250 inline. IIRC, the first V6 Chevy offered was in '78.

    thank you

    Michelle, forget the V6, it wasn't offered in a 76 Caprice.  The only engines I ever saw in that year Caprice was the 350, 400 and 454.  Mom bought a brand new, 1976 Caprice 2dr. coupe with a 454.  It handled like a river barge and got about 12MPG---8 with the air con on.  However, it rode smooth as glass and at 4300 pounds would have been a real Toyota killer at an intersection.  Nice job on the Land Yacht and the color is spot on.    Gee, have I seen that kit before?

    thank you and yes it is the kit i got from you in our last trade

    You could saw 2 cylinders off a 350 LT1 and get a pretty decent rendition of a 4.3. The LT1 was in the Monogram C4 Corvettes. 

    Was the 4.3 available in the Caprice? I would think that you would need to push it up hills!

    i know they had  the 350 2 barrel  and a 400 4 barrel  in  76 which was the final  year for the  second gen  caprice  
    i kinda figured since most  every  car had/has a v6 option  i figured the caprice   did to

    B-N-L Resins has a V6 that might work for you. They were MIA for a while but I've heard several folks say they've ordered lately and gotten quick turnaround.

    Its kind of a generic casting but decent. It comes with a turbo but I'd ditch that.
