    Thanks to both of you for the news about the kit glass. It's been a couple of years since I've opened up the box, and I'd forgot what exactly WAS in the box.

    I'd go for one of those! Since they built a new replica of the original used in the art work for the original kit, a new release of the original kit (with the up to date improvements) would only be right.

    If your stash is anything like mine we could start building a kit every other day and couldn't get them all built in my lifetime.

    I'm going to get one and using the body parts from the reissued early Hemi Under Glass kit to build a Barracuda. My only problem is what I'll do for that BIG ol' back glass., and I'd like to be able to put a little 273 in it instead of the engine this monster has in it.........guess I could just build it as a curbside and TELL people it has the 273 in it. 😂😉
  5. horsepower added a post in a topic Round 2 October 2017 Product Spotlight   

    The story I heard, even in Stock Car Racing magazine at the time wasn't that Lee Petty complained about it being a Ford truck, but was a MoPar factory rep that complained about the Ford truck. Maybe it was a Lee, but not a Petty, but when did Iacocca leave Ford for MoPar? Maybe it was an Iacocca instead of a Petty that shot it down. -😂😉

    It's probably time for the Grant King Sprint Car to be released again, maybe it's one that's going to a dual kit with the Ford Hauler, or even the Pinto or Mustang II bodied modified kits, their wheelbase would fit the trucks built in wheel divits better than the sprint, and they'd look just about period perfect together. Especially if they had the Troyer decals with the Pinto again.

    Did you look at the pictures posted above? Might help with your question, the dashes in these always looked to me like someone at the assembly plant forgot to put something in place on the dash.

    If you search for images of 1970 Chargers you'll find pictures of that car.

    God! How I hated those steering wheels with the horn on the outer rim. Seemed like every time I went to back up in one I'd end up blowing the horn.....repeatedly!

    not really, a decent bolt cutter will take care of cutting through the steering wheel and you can just lift the club off. We were taught this by a professional when the tow company I worked with was going to start recovering reposessions, and getting vehicles to settle court cases.
  11. horsepower added a post in a topic What non-auto model did you get today?   

     Thank you for doing the hard  work. I haven't been able to get to my planes, still unable to negotiate climbing over stuff without danger of falling. Stupid surgeries anyway!
    And on top of that, I hate doing math, it makes my head hurt 😂😉. Well I guess it's close enough for the people that will see it, to most of them if it has a propeller, and wheels you can see when it's flying they wouldn't know if it was right or not. In fact most wouldn't even know it was a REAL airplane.
  12. horsepower added a post in a topic Revell '70 Charger   

     Yeah, as luck would have it just after posting that while looking up images for the '70 Charger to freshen my memory (I sure seem to be doing a lot of that lately) I came across three different cars in this color. In fact one appears to be the one used for making this kit. It's identical except for the fact it doesn't have the "Bumble Bee" stripe and instead has some strange white and black pinstripes that run front to back and also along the bottom demarcation line.
  13. horsepower added a post in a topic Revell 70' Dodge Charger instruction up now .   

    OR, heaven forbid! We get a model of the most prevalent version, bench seat, column shift automatic, vinyl top, 383, (either carb option), IF we want to build the Hemi four speed version pretty near everything is already out there, just dig in the stash and put it together.
  14. horsepower added a post in a topic Camaro for trade   

    What do you build? I'm interested in the Camaro for the subframe, front suspension, and engine. Great for street rod building.
    Thanks for your answer, Del.
  15. horsepower added a post in a topic 2013 Challenger or a similar-looking model   

    The Plum Crazy and Hemi Orange pre painted kits from Revell WERE painted the individual colors, and the Foose Challenger was molded in the lime green pearl color with the black being painted, with a decal for the separation and trim stripes. If you wanted to make a proper version of the Foose car you'll need the wheels from the Foose '67 Charger kit, and repaint the green on the body in a pearl yellow.
