If I ever get around to doing one I plan on doing it black as I like trying to replicate real vehicles I find pictures of. Since there's only one of these, there's only one to replicate! Raw wood with painted strips, most likely. Here's the Foose truck's bed, in case anyone was wondering:
Ron made a very good guess. Roadrunners and Super Bees with the 335HP-rated 383 were in E/S or E/SA (A for Automatic). Other B-Bodies with 330HP-rated 383's were F/S and F/SA. You'd most likely see an open element air cleaner or no air cleaner at all.
The Monogram M48A2 is 35th. (At least it's closer to 35th than it is to 32nd. Hull's a little bit big but figures and turret are definitely 35th) Some boxings were labeled 32nd to better tie in with their other 32nd kits at the time.
Online dating sites seem to trigger Russian Mail Order Bride ads. But on this site it's probably just a broad ad buy. they know the demographics for the site are heavily male. Everybody will probably see it eventually. Ad blockers are great, I have one on every computer I surf the web on except the one work computer I use on Saturdays and I forget how much they block until I use this one. edit - is it the one that says "You have unread messages" and looks like a Facebook page? it came up on this one. You can click the X and tell it you don't want to see it anymore if it's bugging you. Ad buys are packaged together, the site doesn't really control what buys in and the buyers don't really know exactly what sites their ads will show up on.
I think the cowl right under the windshield is the most radical alteration of the entire truck. Stock there's a "ski-jump" from the hood up to the windshield and the Foose truck gets rid of that. The windshield sits much closer to the flat part of the hood/cowl.
It's a replica of a Daytona Yellow L71 originally sold through Yenko Chevrolet that's now owned by the guy who runs Supercar Workshop which is pretty much the continuation of Yenko Performance. http://www.superchevy.com/features/corp-1004-1969-chevrolet-corvette/
Almost $35? It's $24.95 MSRP. Personally I'll take metal axles if they get the body proportions right. A return to the days of promos and annuals if you will. The C7 Vette is bang on and all indications are this one is too.
Lots of race cars now are totally wrapped. Very little paint visible at all. Carbon fiber bodied cars might have no paint at all. If you ever get the chance to see a race car up close you'll be surprised how ratty they actually are. The black stripe around the bottom of the C7.R isn't really black it's raw carbon fiber. I wouldn't be surprised if the yellow is a wrap I always just waxed the decals back when I did NASCARs
The Revell cases are the same cases they ship from China in. The number is the total run, not what any particular distributor or retailer ordered. 10,000 sounds about right for a snap kit. Regular kits are typically 5,000 or 3,000. Revell has maintained for years that their top selling kits are snappers and I don't see any reason to doubt them. I've personally done summer camp orders that were hundreds of snap kits. And when I did wholesale sales I had several kid/toy stores that bought nothing but snaps. And these are boxed for retail kits, make n takes come in their own cases unboxed I don't think they're included in that case count. I'm surprised they don't invest more in new-tool snaps but I guess they figure they don't need to as a kid's first model is new to them no matter what. . I'll take a pic of a couple a Revell cases tomorrow if I think about it. I'll try to see if any are more than 10,000.
