  1. I was reading some old threads in here about Gravity Paints and it didn’t look good. Have things changed? Is there a U.S. distributor that won’t take weeks to get to me? Any help would be appreciated!
  2. I can almost guarantee you that this is just the AMT/Round 2 Crew Chief blazer with different decals and box art.
  3. It was built for Eddie Vanhalen.
  4. I’ve been thinking about doing a restore on my MPC Force 440 police car. Then I was thinking it would be cool to have an exact twin but with four doors. I’m not a Mopar guy so I never knew the two door and four door 78 Monaco’s had a complete different rear end on the body. I happened to be on EBay and there was this Dukes of Hazzard, Roscoe’s police car. The box art shows that the rear end is exactly the same as the Force 440 kit, so I bought it. $57.00 shipped. Then I went on Goggle to see if anyone had done what I’m wanting to do. That’s when I saw that the Sheriff Roscoe Kit is exactly the same as the MPC California Highway Patrol Kit that can be found for thirty bucks! I haaaaaate when the box art doesn’t match what’s in the box!!!
  5. That’s a Hot Shot Truck. Hauls small loads that are priority like medicine.
  6. Beautiful! I used to build the real ones for over thirty years.
  7. I had some gray ABS from Plastruct I think it was and I couldn’t get superglue or epoxy to stick. It came apart easily. In all these years I’ve found there’s no need for any other type of plastic. I’ve been able to use styrene for everything I’ve ever needed.
  8. Awesome work!! I sure wish I had known you were building this! I mastered those exact, small, three spoke wheels that are on the trailer. Jamie Rahmoeller at moluminum.com sells them.
  9. There’s so many ways to do it with styrene? Why would you use ABS? That stuff is horrible, nothing wants to stick to it.
