  1. Sure, but some of the print is not legible.
  2. Hi Tim, Items I would like to see on a detail set in addition to the obvious include printed gauges and dash details, seat belt hardware, chassis/engine brackets and linkages, fitted luggage hardware (latches, handles, hinges etc needed to scratch build a set or a complete resin set), open hood vents, headlight trim.
  3. Hopefully we will see a nice wire wheel. Thanks for the info.
  4. Anyone know of a photoetch detail set for this kit either released or in development? Any good wire wheels as well?
  5. This is the newer kit and it has the cleaned up body, the underside of the roof no longer has the swirls and ripples and the sinks marks have been cleaned up. Both the kits have the same issue of the hood being slid over the cowl for packing, therefore distorting the back end of the hood.
  6. Don't hold your breath waiting for a reply from Stevens International, I emailed them about parts for the same kit about 4 years ago. I received one reply saying they would get the part and never heard from them again. I bought another kit. Have you tried contacting Hasegawa directly through their Japan site?
  7. I found their website, but it is all prices lists and no pictures. Do you know what and where I should be looking on the website? Thanks
  8. Does anyone know any any photo etch detail sets or wire wheels for the Revell Jagaur e type? Or news of anything coming soon? Thanks Mike
  9. I am looking for the body shell for the Revell 1960 Impala, the roof was crushed. Don't need the hood and trunk lid.
  10. Looks like they fixed the front fender stripe, the original had a hook on the front pointing upward.
  11. The grille from the new kit won't fit the sd body, it is a '62 which has a taller grille. The '62 grille went flush with the hood, '63 - '65 had a hood lip molding which extended down into grille area and it turn had a shorter grille. You can use the '63 hood and grille, but that would look weird on a '62.
  12. I may have missed this in an earlier post, but what year is this Jag suppose to represent?
  13. Thanks for the close up picture, looks good. Better than them splitting between the door and rocker panel.
  14. Did they mold the rear lower half of the body as part of the chassis? If so, that will odd to paint, you won't be able to mold that piece into the body before painting.
  15. Does anyone make a photoetch detail set for this Mustang?
  16. Hi Steve, I mentioned this when you were building your '69. Does the '68 have the sunken in area on the passenger side door, both the '69 and '70 have it? Also, I removed the extra door crease on my '70 in the pictures.
  17. My biggest complaint is for both the Coronet and the '67 GTX. The side window trim on one side is set deeper in the body, while the other side it is set further out flush with the drip rails.
  18. I hope they didn't make the '68 obsolete converting to a '69 and each is a separate body. Didn't Revell convert the '69 Dart to a '68 making it impossible to bring back the '69 without destroying the '68.
  19. MCW Resin has a nice 1957 Nomad to be used with the Revell 1957 2 door sedan BelAir.
  20. I have never had an issue with service from Gravity USA. However, I like to stock up on paint, I have Scale Finishes and Zero paints that are 5-10 years old and are still perfect to use. I was looking through my stash of Gravity Colors and nearly all the bottle are dried up, even those that are in the original shrink wrap.
