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
I know it was an oversight but let's be sure to add Len Carsner to this 'thank you' list. He's been responsible for everything from iHobby coverage to doing a lot of the heavy lifting on many of the kit review/how-to articles he and I have cooperated on together in Model Cars magazine. The Revell vintage funny cars featured on the May/June 2011 cover are a great example of Len's efforts.
Actually, 1962 was the only year of the legendary Chrysler letter cars that the cross ram set-up wasn't factory installed. The H's came from the factory with two four barrels in-line. The cross ram that year could be had but it was dealer installed. There was such a fuss about this that Chrysler went back to factory installed cross ram set-ups starting in 1963 on the J model.
In the second line of this caption (third photo in this posting), where it currently reads "automotive", it should read "automatic" (as I've changed it below):
Hereâ€™s a quick comparison of the two rear suspensions available in this new Revell Hemi Dart kit. On the left is the street set-up utilizing an 8-3/4 in. rear axle (dome shaped gear cover) used with an AUTOMATIC transmission the GTS version of this kit. On the right is the Dana rear axle thatâ€™s part of a four-speed drag racing set-up. Not the difference in overall width in comparing the two. The 8-3/4 in. (wider) is attached to the outside of the rear sub-frame rails. The Dana (narrower) is attached to the topside of the rear sub-frame rails and is intended for four-speed application.
I consulted with numerous authorities on the oriignal LAWMAN paint color and so far...nothing definitive. Then I went to Jim Kampmann (noted drag racing authority and all around knowledgeable guy.) He is responsible for the image you posted. It was taken at the NHRA historic meet in conjunction with the US Nats a few years ago. Since Jim had actually seen the clone car in person, we depended heavily on his input. Jim felt it was really close to a 06-08 Mopar color. Then I showed the reference material I had on hand to my Mopar guru Fred Bradley who has as much corporate blue running through his veins as any Mopar fan I know. Fred was able to narrow it down to a Plymouth Prowler color (I believe it's) called Orange Blast(?). Noted builder Tom Creeger did a masterful paint job on the protype model that I built for Lindberg's display at iHobby this year. Until somebody can come forth with something more definitive color-wise, we're going with Orange Blast. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
