    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.

    That is a very good-looking 3 window.

    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.

    Thanks- if you are talking Testor's lacquer, I have a can of that kicking around that I haven't tried to spray yet.

    You picked a beautiful colour- nice, small metallic particles in that one and you got it to lay down smooth. What does Duplicolor call that shade?

    I don't believe there is.

    I agree with the kudos- nice job. Good looking long roof.

    ^^ this photo illustrates what CometMan was getting at should you want to change anything
  10. gman added a post in a topic Wish Lists   

    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

    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.
  12. gman added a post in a topic New Revell kits?   

    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.

    Niiiiice 
  14. gman added a post in a topic '29 rat roadster   

    Well done! Beautiful weathering job- can't wait to see more.
  15. gman added a post in a topic New Revell '48 Ford Coupe   

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