    You do have a number of factory correct colors for the GT500 or just paint it any color you like. http://www.nvsaac.com/Details/1968_ford_mustang_paint_colors.htm
  2. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Thank you. Little known fact, the Mangusta was the only car specifically exempted in the California Vehicle Code from the minimum height requirement of headlamps . Every other car has to be a minimum of 24 inches above the ground. The only way the Mangusta could do that would be to "donk" it. de Tomaso could have stopped there and looked back at a fulfilled life.
  3. Your favourite Box art

    Just an indicator of the "ugly stick" Palmer used to beat all their kits. The stick was then passed along to Starfix.
  4. Randy Ayers Nascar board

    Thanks, I thought it was me.
  5. Randy Ayers Nascar board

    Does anyone have information about the Randy Ayers board? Its been down for about a week. http://www.randyayersmodeling.com/modelingforum/
  6. What did you see on the road today?

    I'd just LOVE to see this driven in anger on a proper road course. Sears Point, Road America etc. What would you say, about a 70% to 30% weight ratio front to rear? A John Deere tractor wouldn't plow any better than this.
  7. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Pack Rat, I like every single one of your choices, and I'm a Ford guy. The fact that we don't have a notchback 67-68 Mustang is beyond my understanding. Ferrari Lusso is the best of the street bodies. And a '71-'72 Polara...well its just not going to happen but a guy can wish.
  8. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Depending on your level of desire (meaning how much money you'd spend for it) http://www.fishermodels.com/product/cunningham-c4r-195354-124?tid=2 I'd go for a C5R also As several others have mentioned: pretty much 2 seater with the name "Cobra" attached: most especially a 289 ci with FIA/USRRC body and a 427 competition along with an injected Daytona Coupe BMW Bavaria (the original from 1972 and later) BMW M6 current body style Audi A6 or A8 current body style 1982-85 RX7 Jaguar C-type (dreaming, I know) All the C1 and C2 Corvettes could use a major freshening I'll think of more as soon as I log off.
  9. D-Revell Panamera

    Personal knowledge? Don't mind me, things like fonts and number sequence are just evidence of my touch of age related OCD.
  10. D-Revell Panamera

    Those Calif plate decals on the test shot page: Comic Sans Font? Really? Also the plates beginning with "2" would have been issued about 1988-89. Euro plates look cooler anyway.
  11. Why aren't tires in model kits made of rubber?

    My question is why don't manufacturer's mold their tires in polystyrene? No issues with chemical misadventures, certain to fit the wheels enclosed in the kit, no issues with incompatibility with paints.
  12. Revell DE 1st quarter releases

    Does the MOG have a military version (I'd think so). Maybe Revell expects some business from the treadhead market.
  13. Revell DE 1st quarter releases

    Pretty certain its a new tool-says that on the release list and the new mold been the subject of discussion on other modeling boards. Now add a 78' Higgins boat..... I know the Porsche 108 is a cute little tractor and; was there some discussion on which version of the Panamera is the subject of the kit? (Ooops, nevermind. Found it.)
  14. http://www.ipmsdeutschland.de/FirstLook/Hersteller_News/Revell_News_2018_I.html#table6 Not a lot of interest except for the 1/72 PT-109 new tool. It says a 911 Turbo release in "cooperation". That usually a re-pop of some other company's mold. Any idea which one?
  15. Aston Martin Racing Aston Martin Vantage GTE 2018

    That is "sick". I do hope they race it in a version of the classic Aston Racing Green. Yes, I am old school.
