The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online. Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.
I like old Cadillacs. I have all the JoHan Caddys except the 77 and 79 from 61 on. My 59 and 60 are based on the superb Monogram 59. I have a resin 59 Fleetwood Sixty Special that I may combine with my last Monogram kit to do a really nice one if I don't run out of time. The 77 and 79 will come to.me one day. My dad had a 83 Coupe re Ville, which I may use the Revell Fleetwood Hardtop as the basis. Most of it is in the kit, and I have seen a Conversion done to that kit as a De Ville. Only time will tell. I have so many projects to finish. Thanks for the shout out!
Bill, In the early'70's, Ford marketed such a car, the LTD wagon. It was trimmed out as a LTD, but was not a Country Squire. Back in the day, if your pockets were deep enough, and you had a dealer who was willing, that car would have been built by the factory.
I celebrated my birthday yesterday, and I picked up the following in the past few weeks:
A built-up 1962 Cadillac Fleetwood to complete my Cadillac Collection in Scale A Missing Link Resin 1961 Pontiac Catalina 2 Door Sedan Transkit to go with one of my Mobieus 61 Catalinas. Various Resin wheelcovers and accessories to enhance my builds. A 1970 Hemi cuda for the Rallye Wheels for the 1970 Charger kit that O bought Last month, along with the AMT White lettered Polyglas GT Tires for those kits. I have to get out of my building slump. After seeing so many great builds here on the board, I have to get back to work. I have so many ideas for these and the others I have.
The Firestone Double Pinstripe Tires will work well on non-performance versions of. 1970 and 1971 cars. The Performance cars with factory whitewalls got '70 series pin whites. My Dad's '70 Lincoln Continental and my Grandparent's '71 Mercury Marquis had those double pinstripe tires. I would love to get a set for a '70 Impala. LTD, or Monte Carlo among others.
It is the Nickey Chevrolet version. Non stock, but I have the parts left over from the one I built originally, as well as parts from my parts box, as well as an unbuilt original version of the kit. I plan to do an Indy Pace Car Convertible. I have the parts to do the car.
(2) '61 Pontiac Catalinas from Mobieus (1) '67 Camaro SS/RS from Monogram. I am happy with these, and I also have a '61 Pontiac Catalina Post Sedan Resin Body coming from Missing Link Resin. I have not yet built my '61 Ventura, but I know what I want to do with it.
