  1. Lowering stance of 80's monogram nascar kits

    Do you need to trim the rear shocks?
  2. 1/25 AMT 1969 Olds W-30 442

    I think they sell the tires separate from the kits.
  3. A couple old ford galaxies completed

    what color on the Woods/Panch car ?
  4. AAR Cuda and Model King Mopar

    There is a really good article in SA about converting the new tool Revell "Cuda" into a Gurney T/A. I think he did bascially the same stuff you have done to your conversion. Fred Cady made decals for the stock T/A as well as the Gurney, Swede Savage T/A Cudas. I don't know of any one else who does thoses. I had a set put for some reason sold them. I had hoped some one would do the hood and spoiler in resin so I can do the race car.So far I have only seen the hood. Keep up the good work. Jim
  5. 1970 'Cuda

    Really nice build.
  6. '65 Plymouth Satellite...The One That Got Away

    That's one nice looking 65. I've always been a Ford guy but if you ask me the 65 Bel/Cornet are two of the nicest looking cars ever produced in America. your real car is a bute. I'm sure the model will be super.
  7. Lloyd Ruby's 1970 Mongoose Indy Car

    Nice work on the Ruby Car. To me he was one of those guys when you mentioned Loyd Ruby you thought The indy 500. I love the older Indy stuff. It was a time of innovation. Novi's, roadsters,rear engine cars, side pod cars, turbines man I loved Indy back then. Again the Ruby Mongoose is a blast from the past. Great work.
  8. need help on a 1963 ford galaxie light weight

    The cast iron headers from the 60 Starliner ,I can't remember if they are in the stock 60 are the coustom 60, the later release has both. I think are correct for this application. You can also get those headers in the 64 Galaxie superstocker and the 65 Fairlane superstocker. At least they are correct for the Nascar version. I would assume they were used in the 63 Drag version. I believe there is an article in Model Car Mag and the cast iron headers were used on the red 63.
  9. 63 Lightweight Galaxie - Romy Hammes Brannan

    nice work so far. I'm using the same pieces to do the 63 Daytona winner. Does MCW still make the light weight interior. Looks like the interior trim is what is in the Woods car. The kit interior is the Galaxie 500 interior. I cut off the bottom of that interior and it fits nicely with the 60 hump and floor. I did need to make a new fire wall panel for the 500 interior. Great work keep the picture coming.
  10. Nice work on the Torino. Did you have any trouble getting the chassie up under the interior tube. For some reason everytime I try to build one these the chassie rails don't want to go up under the body so well. Thought you might be able to help. Again it looks really good.
  11. Earnhardt Sr. #3 '92 Lumina

    Chevy engine red is correct.
  12. AMT 1970 Camaro Z28

    Building the Z-28 from AMT right now. It's the one that got away. Will be Dark green. Any surprises when building the kit. I followed one of the builds in one of the mags. He said the dash needed to be shortened. What are your thoughts. I've got all my parts painted starting the assembly process.
  13. I bought one a couple of weeks ago an like you was surprised about the content. I do wish it had a scoop and front bench seat. hopwfully mine is going to be white exterior with red interior. i'll be watching your build.
  14. Moebius `65 Plymouth Satellite

    It always amazes me how you get so many "it should be like this" from test shot photos. Anyway alway liked the 65 Bel. any chance there's going to be a racing version?
  15. 1963 Chevy Impala, AMT promo

    Man that's a really nice piece. I've always thought that the AMT 63 Impala body was as good as it get. Hard to believe that a 50+ year old model. Looks great.
