  1. I found a Polar Lights set on Ebay that looks like it might do the trick. The 427 blocks have a much larger deck for the intake manifold than the 429. The 429 is really pretty narrow. I will check the fit when the parts arrive and will post here if it works out. I will likely send one on to Nrom at Rep and Min to (hopefully) add to his excellent casting of the 429.
  2. Does anybody have a single carb Boss 429 manifold that fits the Rep and Min (or Johan Comet) 428 25th scale motor? Thanks! Steve D.
  3. Sorry guys - I have been very lazy with getting decal work done. Job changes at my day job and doing a bunch of work at a place in Maine where I have a cottage have taken up a bunch of time that I used to spend doing artwork. The 427 Cobra (and 250TR) sheet had a minor problem with the stripes, and I am printing corrections before I release them. The correction artwork is done, and it is attached to the artwork for the Mopar MOD Tops. The MOD top art is complete, but after receiving a dealer book with original MOD material I have decided to punch up the colours in the art to match the originals. Two out of three are complete, and I am hoping to have the third one done and back from Cartograf by the NNL East. Hopefully, this means that the MOD sheets, 427 Cobra#1, and 250TR sheets will all be available at the NNL.
  4. Yep, the plan is to finish the 65 BB hood, and send to a resin caster with 65 and 66 seats to use as a transkit for the '67. You will have to use the '67 interior tub, but all you really have to do is a bit of rework on the console.
  5. Well, a friend of mine is working on updates for the Revell 67 in order to convert to 65 and 66. He has finished the SB hood, and bodies, and is still working on a 66 seat and the 65/66 BB hood.
  6. Well, add me to the list. Ordered on March 2, ended up filing with Paypal and got my money refunded today. Time to try Splash paints.
  7. It is identical, except that the Academy does not have any Ferrari decals. Its an easy problem to fix...
  8. These were a wire wheel with the knock-off attached to the wheel that was released with the original AMT 64 Falcon kit. Looking for any number of wheels. Modelhaus also cast these, and those versions are ok also. The real ones look like this:
  9. Hi Rico, How are things going? The grilles are very impressive...I have each one of them. How long did each one take to complete the design work for?
  10. Yep, I have already mentioned that those would be a great idea!
  11. Hi All, This is a resin wheel for 66-67 Dodge and I am trying to figure out what kit or promo it came from. It looks a bit like an older Modelhaus casting. Note the centre cap that seems different from the original 69 Coronets.
  12. The original Gulf colours were old Triumph codes that John Wyer put on the original GT40s and Porsche 817s. They were Marigold for the orange and Powder Blue for the light blue. The Team Davidoff McLarens used a light blue pearl and a florescent orange. Steve
  13. I already ordered 2 sets of grilles. Should have them in another 7-10 days. And 68 GTX door panels and seats? Would not mind a couple interior sets (door panels, front buckets, rear bench) also...
  14. Did anybody ever do one in 1/25th for the original MPC kits?
