    This may have been posted here before, but I just found it today... an ongoing project in year 6 of a projected 10 year project.  Simply amazing.  I have seen at least a couple names I recognize from the forums, so I know some of you have seen it.  Didn't know if it had been here or not yet.

    I think I read in one of the magazines that Testors French Blue with some white works.  I think I may have used Grabber Blue at some point also.  I've done several Petty cars over the years.  Not a Superbird though.

    Perfectly stated "total hopelessness and futility" - Love it.  
    There are some slant sixes out there.  I have a Lindberg Dodge 330 with the slant 6.  I bought the kit just for the engine.  Haven't decided what the lucky (or unlucky) recipient will be.  Maybe this would be the kit?  Make it a base model with the 6 and an auto or 3 spd.  Need some Malaise wheel covers.  Maybe 3 and a steelie...  I still have an X11 in the stash somewhere...  never could really decide what terrible color would suit it best...I do get your motivation of preserving the era.  
    Reviews are great - I look forward to them all and spent way too much time perusing your site last week.

    Keep going...change that 2nd pic to a butternut yellow and that is the car my great aunt had when I was a kid.   Same wheelcovers, black top and all.  I want to say it was a slant 6 though, form memory of how it sounded.  that's a 40+ year memory going on, though - could be wrong.   no matter.  I'm watching and waiting to see this one.

    i so wish it had been an earlier version.  Even as passionate as I am about cars, the real once of this car was so awful, even I lost interest in it.   The round headlight versions were at least interesting to look at as a reminder of what used to be.   I was excited about this kit till I saw the square headlights and no real cool decal options.  May as well be beige with a brown vinyl top, slant 6 and 3 spd manual.  And fulll wheel covers to complete the Malaise.  
    Going to read your review now so I can at least get some entertainment out of this car and kit.
    Thanks for the great reviews.

    I showed your vid on the roll-up windows to my buddy who does train stuff.  He was excited for his train stuff as well.  THat's way over the top for me, but glad someone is willing to be so, well, OBSESSIVE, over the details...
  8. randyc added a post in a topic 1/6 scale Supernatural 1967 Impala 3d print project, need advice/help   

    I woudl think 1/8 scale would be better - at least there are some 1/8 scale kits to borrow parts and engineering from.

    Well I've been to the Fotki site and looked at vids as well.  What a great builder.  And what good information is just in the pictures for reference.  I'll be watching this one come to life as well.

    Mt Airy, NC.  Maybe 1.5 hours?  Our company recently did some work in Rocky Mount VA at a Shell convenience store.

    I'll try to give you a call sometime soon. I'm not too far away and need to get rid of some cars.

    And how many were built using aftermarket decals.... I probably have 100 NASCAR builtups?  There are a LOT of them for sure.  I could about assemble them in my sleep back in the day.  And that's just the Monograms.  Ihave a bunch of the AMTs as well.  And the trucks... And so on.

    Yup.  Start with something close and keep fiddling with it til it's as right as you think.  Photographs can be color-shifted.  The King himself admits the original was mixed from leftovers.  And the color changed throughout the years.  Pick your car, find a photo and get close to it.  Or get the Martin Senour Basin Street Blue...  If it's not sitting on the hood of the real car, who'se going to say it's not correct?  Unless it is wildly off.  
     
  14. randyc added a post in a topic AMT Polyglas GT Parts pack tires & Tires in AMT 66 Mustang kit?   

    One set of these in the kit.  One set of skinny Firestones with no printing.  These wheels are from the 67 Mustang GT kit.  The tires really make the look of the car, I think.

    I won a local contest with one of those back in the late 80s, I think.   It had the stock version, plus the Budnik wheels and late model seats and some engine dress up.   That version did.  I still have a 56 to build.  Would be nice combined with best parts from Revell.
