You can try TDR and see if they will do it in a scale other than 1/8th. You may be able to get the manifold, carbs, and stacks all in a single kit. https://sites.google.com/site/tdrhtmllearn/home/engine-shop/ford-engine-selection/427-so-stock-multi-media-kit
Yep, I have the S27 set too...they really missed a lot. The side markings are all wrong - even the Autolites have a black border - should be red. S27 did not include the Scuderia Bear, Gulf, Sebring Tech, or Pocono stickers. They also did not do the hand painted red hash marks (the red curved Roman numeral III looking thing right above the stripes). Those hash mark are crooked and uneven because the real ones were too. The real car did not get the restoration right either if they tried for as raced at Sebring. Ahhh...the joys of counting printed rivets...
Well, unfortunately, the screwup is with CSX3016. The red and blue stripes that are attached to the numbers need to be reversed. The one on the right goes on the front - the blue stripe should be on the right. Dummy me... Get some Silver Mink on your model and if the revisions have still not come back I will sell you a set with the extra stripe segment from my personal sheet (doing the Targa and SF cars) if you dont mind chopping up the stripes a bit. The caveat is that you have to send me some good pics when it is done that I can use on the website. Steve
NIteowl, I'm not sure who you are 'cause you have no name anywhere that I can find. Anyway, I had emailed Ed Sexton a year or so ago after some discussions with my club about the original Olds kit they released, and my club had told me that the grille was not correct for the 442. Ed said that he did not know that there were different grilles between the 442 and the Hurst car. This is an easy one to miss (I did initially) unless you know the subject matter pretty well. After a bit of my own research I suggested to Ed that they correct the grille, revise the taillights and release it as a '71 convert with 2 grilles, 2 hoods, and black and white 442 stripes. Revell screwed up initially, though I hear the kit is quite nice for the Hurst version. More importantly though, they corrected it in a following release. Continuing to beat up the 'Great and Powerful Wizards of Illinois' after they fix something is really sort of counter-productive. I applaud them for acknowledging their mistake and spending some tooling resources to correct the error. I hope those that want to kitbash the two kits are happy with all the options available.
I mentioned to Ed Sexton about a year ago that the grille was not right for the regular 442, and he was not aware of that. I pointed out that ebay prices were very high, and that it might be time for a reissue even though the kit was only recently issued. I also suggested they release it as a '71 442 with corrected grille and '71 taillights. The interiors can be the same between '71 and '72, but '70 would require more tooling.
Hey Rex, The guy that did the initial work for the HRM 68 Shelby is hard at work on a 69/70 convert, as well as a '67 notchback (to be followed by a '67 convert). HRM has the first crack at them. Steve
The Aston Cal Sage shade is not at all close - too much olive. I got info on the correct mix from the owner of the A98, but it is for English systems - working on converting to a US mix. I got a bunch of pics of the car at Goodwood a few years ago - MFH did a really good job, except for the wheels. They should have included Halibrands like in the Revell Cobra - they were coated with Dow #7 gold. The Revell wheels are too small for the MFH rubber, but I have not had time to mix and match wheels yet. The Zero Paint sample looks close. This has been a holy grail of mine for years. Steve D.
