    Can't speak for Moebius specifically, but if the sprues and bodies are packaged too quickly without having enough time to cool out of the mold, warpage becomes an issue.

    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.

    Well done! Beautiful weathering job- can't wait to see more.

    One of these would make an excellent modified re-issue for Revell (hint-hint)...with some vintage speed parts for the flattie :o

    I'll take at least two, maybe more :D Always wanted to be able to build Fat Jack's ill-fated '46. Bought a Testor's/IMC '46-'48 many years ago, got it home and the body was pretty busted up with poor chrome, so that project never got off the ground. The new Revell '48 should have some good bones to build upon.

    That colour combo looks great. Would love to see it finished.

    I have always liked those- 1:1 and in kit form. Good luck with your build.

    Nice job- beautiful wood tones. Which paint did you use on the bodywork?

    What type of clear did you use?
  14. gman added a post in a topic Revell's "Hot Rod Hydro" - What's New and Different with this reissue?   

    Yes- thanks for the review and the shots of the built versions. I wouldn't normally purchase or build one of these, but after seeing your treatment of the subject I can really appreciate the kit.

    Yes, the tinted glass was in one of the MPC boxed releases.

    I had two kits purchased about a year apart in the 80's that looked identical on the packaging with the tinted glass and quality of the chrome job being the only difference under the shrink wrap. I made one built model out of the two kits as one had a few broken parts on the chrome tree and some puddled chrome over excess clear under the plating.
