  1. Thanks, guys. Wiring was so tempting on this one in particular, but I've paid my "keys in the ignition" dues and just let it be a fun build. It wouldn't be hard to still do it. Throttle linkage, too. And fuel lines. Oh yeah, that's why I didn't do plug wires.
  2. MPC's recent Prudhomme release with a Revell Gene Snow Funny Car motor.
  3. Very nice, indeed. Did you have to deal with hood fit issues?
  4. It's got a cop motor, cop suspension, cop brakes . . . The carb trumpets are from pen barrels. The tail piece is balsa, sanded to shape. The clip on bars were scratched and I'm still figuring out making a 4 into 1 exhaust from the kit 2 into 2. The second photo is of " stay at home" WIPs 2, 3 and 4

  6. I've done that one too, but not with the Foose stuff
  7. This has got to be the easiest conversion I've ever done, swapping everything under the Foose F-100 onto the Moebius chassis. I'll offer one tip. The windshield fit is super tight and the chrome trim is molded with it. Wait until it's in place and do the garnish with Bare Metal Foil unless you're really steady with a Molotow Pen
  8. I've pre-ordered the Vega from Tower. Due in May.
  9. My High School Girlfriend's Mom had a B-210 automatic. That thing would not turn the tires over on the gravel road I lived on.
  10. yes, but the Vette has been burned twice by the toy and model companies. AMT released early with the '63, the car mags used photos of the model. In '69, it was HotWheels that showed the new car before Chevy did
  11. Might be the lack of humidity here in the southwest. Really hard on the slicks from the Revell large scale dragsters, too
  12. Since nobody asked, let me throw in that the full bumper front end weighs about 200 pounds less than the split
  13. I've never had a kit with a rubber belt that didn't fail eventually. I replace the belts with a few thicknesses of electrical tape
