  1. Tognotti King T ?

    For those who are looking for the suspension pieces you're unfortunately out of luck since most of it came from Don's mind at some very good emgineering. It was independent front AND rear suspension the front could be made with some good photos, and some of the front suspension pieces from the Buttera kits with the jag suspension, but the rear is way off from any kit parts and was years ahead of anything else in the hot rod world.it was fully independent but used a passenger car center section with a drop in third member, it may have used some second generation Corvette parts but I'm not sure about that. I do think it might have used the '55-'64 Chevrolet rear end for the center section and third member, BUT don't hold me to that it's been years since I've seen the article about the construction. I do know that when it was restored to running driveable condition a few years ago they flew in the original painter to duplicate his job on the original, and when it was sold at Barrett Jackson Scottsdale auction Gene (Winfield) was sitting in the passenger seat when it crossed the stage.you might even find paint formulas for the paint, I know that GM's Evening Orchid a '65 color used to be available for spray can from Testors but has been discontinued, it's really close but not the exact color. I seem to think it was a Ford or Studebaker color, but again I'm aging and my memory ain't as good as it used to be.
  2. How it's done: copying an old steel body in metal

    You should do a search for the article where he shows how to build an aluminum track nose.
  3. Scale Model Community Discord!

    Especially when they have broken and hazardous pieces like that one😨 that thing is a personal injury lawsuit just waiting to happen! In fact I'm surprised that a young new lawyer doesn't have a table set up next to it, or at the least have it plastered with his business cards.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  4. Revell Super Spyder Monza re-release

    I bought a box of Mustang II stuff a few years ago at an NNL West show because it had one of the rare '74 bodies in it and I dug it out last year to see what all was in the box and to my surprise it had two of the Monroe Mustang II bodies in the box with the hatches being the only missing yellow molded part, but I can rob them from a couple of other kits I have laying around. I was doing my happy dance! 😁
  5. Revell Super Spyder Monza re-release

    Wasn't the AMT Monza reissue the one with the funky looking Vega type nose?
  6. The pump portion should have a inlet that bends down and hits the bottom of the hull just behind the engine, it actually has the drive shaft for the pump impeller going into it and have almost a square shape where it hits the hull. The other side of it is a grate with fore and aft grille bar shapes that keep large junk from getting into the pump, that sticks down just about an inch from the surface of the hull. Hope this helps, you can Google a search for Jacuzzi, and Berkeley and should get pictures or diagrams that would really help you out.
  7. Maybe there's that rare two bodied '34 Ford coupe in there!?
  8. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Don't know why I did it, probably because I didn't find anything else in the model category but I picked up the AMT Batmobile with the included skinny Bat dude for the cockpit at a flea market last weekend. Don't know what I'm going to do with it, but it's mine now and for $6 I think it was a fair deal.
  9. I too was confused by the box art. But decided it was because the ORIGINAL release of this kit WAS the '64, and when the '65 came out AMT just modified the body to a '65 and with that the '64 was a dead subject. But personally I would prefer the '64 and the bench seat version since very few SS options were sold to fleet operators like construction companies. Except for the few that the BIG boss got for himself. I remember an under classmate who drove a '65 and it was the SS with the 350 horsepower 327, four speed and posi-trac. She was a tiny little thing that didn't even stand five feet tall and weighed less than 80 pounds but was quite a sight with her long red hair and looking through the steering wheel instead of over it. She did get pulled over quite a few times by officers who just knew that they had caught some pre teen out joyriding in daddy's car. And she was pretty good at stirring that shift lever when she felt the need to embarrass some upper classman that needed humbling.
  10. Revell "Eldorado" model

    I misunderstood you. I got that you were saying the Foose kits were underwritten by Wally World, sorry for the misunderstanding. 😦
  11. Revell "Eldorado" model

    Buy the time these were out Walmart had already stopped stocking models at every store in the chain and had tried putting them back into a few stores on a trial basis that lasted less than a year and was discontinued after Christmas of that year. And NEITHER of the Foose kits (other than the ones that were just wheels and decals) showed up in ANY of the stores that I saw in California.
  12. Revell "Eldorado" model

    Like the Bronco? But I haven't heard a lot about it from the custom/hot rodder, off road guys about how it would be better if it was done as one of those versions instead of stock.
  13. News of Revell molding preparing in US

    They're probably removing the Foose items and that would qualify it as "new" reissue.
  14. Buddy Baker's 1980 Oldsmobile 442 in 1/25th scale.

    Hate to enlighten you on an open forum. But the Plymouth and Dodge cars that the Petty clan (and anyone else running them) raced in the late sixties and seventies were ALL unibody cars, they even used the factory leaf springs in the rear and torsion bar suspension up front. That changed with the downsizing when they went to common measurements on the chassis and suspension and from then on almost everything is produced by a few different builders.
  15. Our Silverado is a 1992 4x4, should have put the year down when I answered the thread. Sorry 'bout that.
