    Does Squadron know something we don't?
    While breezing through todays online sale flyer from Squadron I spotted the Revell model A Roadster kit on special for $21.99  and listed as "in stock soon" kit RM4322. 
    Does Squadron know something we don't, or being more a military type sales outlet have they just not got the word about the mold tooling disaster yet?

    I wish I did, but the things I remember have been mentioned elsewhere, I got the ones I remember are from the show. I'm not sure but I think you can find reruns of it on line.

    The top has been chopped 1" in the A pillars and the rear of the cab has been pie cut just enough to let the front settle down in place, NOT sure, but I think (yes I know how dangerous that can be) that the top above the drip rails has had a slight amount of material taken out to make it look a little flatter and not as bulky looking.

    Thanks!! I was goinfg to ask if it had hit the shelves yet. You just solved that question for me. 😊

    the roof, quarter panels, deck lid, hood, and fenders are all body items that are factory sourced body panels on the new bodies of NASCAR race cars. A lot different than the bodies of '90s and early 2000's that looked like they had been stepped on, twisted and tweaked to the point that the only recognisable piece was the roof.

     Just in case you're thinking that they'd be faster because of better aero. The newer cars are way better in that department. The newer cars are only held back by the engine restrictions, and in most cases the required gear ratios are a limiting factor.

    So you're not in favor of products that are totally designed and built entirely in the United States? There's absolutely no foreign designs or parts that aren't totally American.

    Yep, based on the same engine that Shelby used in the 427 Cobra.

    With the change announced to the restructuring of the subscription format the new expiration of your personal subscription is now by issue number instead of month and year. But is in the same location.

    They used the gray interiors on the restrictor plate cars only. All other car were still the red, on Dales cars anyway.

     The body from the beltline down is shorter than it should have been for correct scale dimensions. Compare it to any of the Revell kits and you can see it clearly. I forg the reason why, maybe if Tim Boyd knows he'll let us know. 
    The only AMT kit that was correct ironically is the Phantom Vicky street rod and that's a custom. It really shows up if you try to use the Revell interior parts in one of the AMT early bodies. But the Phantom Vicky interior, (or the Dan Fink Speedwagon) interior will fit in the Revell two door sedan body for a nice looking street rod interior.

    Yes, in real life anyway, In my youth I took the interior panels from a friends '57 150 that were scrapping and put them into my '56 Bel-Air sedan, perfect fit and really confused a few people that had never looked at a '57 150 interior.

    That is if they even have any.

    13" tires are easy to find. Almost all of the lowrider tires from Pegasus, and ALL of the Revell low rider tires are 13", just remove or hide the whitewalls and put them on appropriate wheels.
