    Tom, maybe we could talk the companies into a 67/68 Camaro convertible based on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.

    I agree with you Scott.  Skip the S&H and just bring out the Torino.

    I would love a Kaiser and buy one or more in a heartbeat, but I'm not sure that they would sell well, but then I guess the same could be said of their bold move with the Hudsons.  I would think that a good move on their part would be a 61 Ventura 4 door hardtop or Catalina station wagon.  Equip the wagon with a realistic trailer hitch for hauling the 2 door hardtop to the drags.  I could also see a Desoto variant off of their 55/56 Chryslers.

    What I don't understand is why we can't get a 58 Ford?   I really appreciate the 57s, and thank both Revell and AMT for their offerings and variety, but I can't believe that I'm alone in wanting the "forgotten" Ford.  I would love it in a station wagon version.

    Jim.  It is.  Along with the other goodies, (forgive me for I have sinned) I gave it a little "attitude".

    early 70s Camaro dirt tracker
    This is a 70s Camaro as would have been seen running the dirt tracks of Iowa back in the 1970s.

    56 Ford Fairlane
    56 Ford 2 door hardtop
    This is my latest build.  It's mostly box stock except for a couple of things to give it class.

  8. Kodiak Island Modeler added a post in a topic IF Revell,Round2 and others would make a few more station wagons. What would you like them to be?   

    It would probably be easiest to get them to build something on an existing model.  One thing I would love to see is a 58 Ford which both Revell and AMT have the beginnings for.  A 51 Ford Woody would also be a welcome model, and could be based off of AMTs 49 or 50 Ford.  For the bowtie crowd, AMT could consider 68/69 full size Chevy wagons from the 67 or 70 that they now have, and for the Mopar people they could give thought to a 57 or 59 Plymouth wagon from the 58 Plymouth.  Moebius, how about a Desoto wagon from your 55/56 Chrysler or a wagon from your proposed 61 Pontiac?  By making a year just off of an existing mold, they can come up with a brand new product with minimal expense.  I have very few expectations of ever seeing these things materialize, but it's fun to dream.

    Words can't describe how magnificent that is.
  12. Kodiak Island Modeler added a post in a topic 1964 MERCURY PARK LANE MARAUDER   

    I had a real one like that back when I was in the Army. It even shared the same stance, though mine was due to dead springs. Nice build of a really cool car.

    I've been building for over 50 years and I still find myself in awe of the other builders. Your craftmanship is quite noteworthy and something to be pleased with.

    It looks good. We need to see more trailers highlighted.

    That's some beautiful detailing. You've got a lot of good load suggestions, and I could see it having a combination of some of them. This would be interesting with a load from a site that's being cleared for construction. The Hudson keeping company with some foundation material and other assorted debris that's been loaded onto it and headed to something like a landfill. What a sick thought though; a Hudson convertible,even in that bad of condition, being used for landfill.
