  1. Thanks for the heads up on that! Gonna have to go to Books a Million later.
  2. Awesome! I'm really looking forward to this one. By the way, I love you website, very cool! Cheers, Greg
  3. Looks pretty cool to me. Maybe an American Iron road racer next? Too bad they don't do parts packs anymore, a sprue or two of stuff from the Ford Racing catolog would be sweet (to include the 2300k 5 lug conversion and some '95 cobra r wheels). With the right parts, it could be useful with their SN95 and New edge kits too..... Regardless, good job Revell. Cheers, Greg
  4. Old school is looking good. Revell's black widow wasn't perfect, but a great start, and the 57 ford is sweet. I hear the hudsons are great, and I have the Flock 300. R2's 65 galaxie is to be followed by 71 mercury and Laguna s3. Hopefully more to follow. I feel bad for the guys who want current stuff. Unless nascar and others become more reasonable, resin will be the only choice (and diecast). On the good side, they'd only have to tool up one version for the most part. The differences are in the stickers! Still gonna root for the Wood brothers till the end anyways.......
  5. Since both of these versions were raced in Nascar, the topic has come up over at Randy Ayer's nascar modeling forum. According to a few gentleman over there, the fairlane and custom were two different wheelbases. They are pretty darn knowledgeable over there, and one of the moderators (Tom M) is combining the kits in a build. If I remember right, in one of the threads, there was factory literature to back it up. Regardless, both are great looking cars. I haven't built the revell yet, but it is in my stash (to include the Fireball Robert's version), and I plan to re-do the AMT too (my first was a glue bomb way back in the day). Cheers, Greg
  6. Awesome! I never thought they'd put one out in plastic, and at a fraction of the cost of resin to boot. I just got the "gulf" version in the mail today. I like the door options too. Cheers, Greg
  7. AAR=awesome! Cool about the AMT tires fitting too, thanks Tim! Cheers, Greg
  8. Thanks Tim! Very cool. I had faith in Revell, and I will certainly be buying a few. I am very enthused by the interior with seperate back seat. Much easier to make a racecar! Plus, I have some wheels and drag 500's, slixx decals, waiting for the 70 Sox and Martin....... Thanks again Tim. Cheers, Greg
  9. Hello guys, I hope all of you had a great Christmas. I am at a holding point till I can paint the headers, and the body. Here is a shot of the dash. I like how it came out. Cheers, Greg
  10. Thanks Eric, now I know what to look for. That is a nice looking stang. Cheers, Greg
  11. Hey guys, I like that cafe racer body. Looks good, which kit is that? I would like to make an American Iron racer at some point, and that looks like a good starting point for it. The Roush racer looks good Tony. I should get back to work on mine tomorrow. For the life of me, I can't find the seat belt set that has the Simpson logos. I did find a lot of cool stuff digging through my stash looking for it though, including a black window net set. That ought to work out better than the plastic one for interior visibilty, since it will folded down. Unless, of course the interior looks like ######, net up! Cheers, Greg
  12. Dang! That is looking good Tony. I am a bit behind you on mine. I am getting there, slowly, but surely. Cheers, Greg
  13. Hello Niko, I would like to join. I have a Tamiya Sauber Mercedes C9 from LeMans 89 that I would like to enter. Thanks for hosting this, and giving plenty of time. Cheers, Greg
  14. Glad to see they finally made a Community Build section. I apologize for my absence. I got frustrated with some of the problems I was having ( with the kit), and put the stang on the back burner. It is back in the mix again (along with 5 airplanes for group builds on finescale.com). Since I am not building a race specific car, I am using artistic license on some of the colors. I am going more on research photos than the directions. The body is waiting on another coat of primer. I've gotten some more bits and pieces done since I took these photos. I had to add shocks and reservoirs up front, and I am going to add some brakes from a C5-R. I really like what everyone is up to. I hope I can catch up! Cheers, Greg
