      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    If the car hauler parts are able to be run separately (which I doubt) from the Ford Louisville cab/frame/etc, and if the car hauler bed fits the C-600 stakebed without modification (which I doubt), and if...well, you get my point, and that's ignoring the integral sleeper on the real C-series.

    The Revell Orange Crate '32 Ford Sedan kit include one, too.

    Mega Hobby is very quick to ship in my experience. I ordered a a few decals sheets and they were shipped the same day, and arrived within three business days of placing my order.

    The T-top roof panels are separate parts:

    So.....first time, too, then? 
    Weird that it's only been included in the AMT '65 El Camino (sometimes) since then.

    Yes, they are basically the same kit, with some parts differences as you noted, as well as the wheels and the turbocharged engine. I can't recall if the Blackbird kit included smoke-tinted glass or not, but I want to say it did. Hopefully that specific model kit fad is gone for good.
    It's been a while since I had the Blackbird kit, but I was a little underwhelmed by it to be honest. It seemed typical of late '70s MPC kits, with decent but not super crisp details. The decals were really nice, though, and the finished kit does end up looking quite like the real thing. The underside and engine are the weak areas in the kit from what I recall.
    I'm guessing Round2 did not acquire the licensing necessary to use the "Trans Am" name this time around, so who knows, maybe we'll get some type of combination of both kits/versions.

    Good memory, Vince.

    No desire to see this combo kit reissued but the box art is neat:

    Yes, that would be great to see the slide in camper included again. Was the below pictured 1969 issue the last in which the camper was included?

    1/25 AMT '59 El Camino
    Look like AMT's '59 El Camino is going to be reissued as kit #1058. Good to see this one back again.

    Looks like the 1/16 scale MPC '79 Pontiac Firebird kit is being reissued as kit #862. Hopefully it's the "Turbo Blackbird" version and not the 10th Anniversary T/A version.

    I don't think this will be an issue now that the decals in all(?) Round2 kits are made by Cartograf. I guess we'll see when this one is available for purchase:

    Other than the slightly revised box art and some tampo printed Goodyear Polyglas tires(and I'm guessing no MPC sticker this time), I'm going to guess it's nearly the same as the 2008 reissue.

    What does this have to do with a review of the MPC '70 Coroner Super Bee kit? 
    There is a long-existing review topic discussing this exact kit: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/16132-mpc-1970-dodge-coronet-super-bee/
