Some early cars (and even some as late as my '65 Rambler) used a torque tube- a fixed external tube that the driveshaft rotating assembly turns inside of. I believe that is what was used on this generation of Chevrolet as well, so the outside tube you see does not rotate with the driveshaft. http://www.ebay.com/itm/40-41-42-46-47-48-chevrolet-passenger-sedan-delivery-rear-end-torque-tube-/302019712623?hash=item4651c7166f:g:6GsAAOSw-FZXkAMs&vxp=mtr
That is a very good-looking 3 window. http://s286.photobucket.com/user/basicxj/media/Little ones/323window.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1 I was going for a similar era with one of my stalled projects using the same rear tire combo, and you are nailing this so far.
Modified re-issue suggestions based on Revell's existing tooling I would love to see: '29 bodied Ford Model A roadster/5 window Stock height '30 Ford Model A 5 window '40 Ford Tudor Sedan '48 Ford Tudor sedan '57 Ford Ranchero any later-model variants of the Dodge Dart/Plymouth Valiant '87 Olds Cutlass RWD '90 (or other model year variants) of the Fox platform Mustang with corrected roof height Station wagon versions of almost any recent tool
Modified re-issue suggestions based on AMT/ERTL/Round 2's existing tooling: '41-48 panel truck based on '41 Ford woody tooling '55-57 (or even '58-'59 variant) Chevrolet or GMC panel truck or Suburban Tahoe or Yukon 2dr based on their late 80's and 90's truck platform Stock or drag (flip front) version of '75-'76 Datsun pickup :no monster truck:
* more parts pack issues (new tools), especially an all-new Ford flathead with vintage speed parts cheater slicks hot rod big & littles with vintage mags, pie crust slicks
I didn't mind the way Revell used to do things not too long ago- a stock release of a certain kit, followed by a custom release, with re-issues sometimes being a "2 in 1" combining both stock and custom parts in one box. I used to buy what came available if it piqued my interests, and if something really pressed all the right buttons, I'd buy a few more when later versions got released. With some pending new releases (the 48 Ford stock-height coupe for example), with some kit bashing from various versions you could probably do stock and custom or rodded versions of the convertible, woody and the coupe. If that is a profitable formula for the manufacturer to keep releasing new kits + modified versions of older releases, count me in for many more purchases.
