  1. Brett Barrow added a post in a topic First Detailed Look and Kit Commentary - new Moebius '65 Plymouth Satellite   

    Coronet is the Dodge B-body, Belvedere is the Plymouth B-body.  Satellite is the top trim level of the Belvedere series.

    Bored at work today, did a quick snap together of this kit. It's not bad. I like the silver for the wheels, but it doesn't work as we'll for the headlights. Wish they were chrome. Can't wait for the more detailed kits to show up, I know they're doing the pre-paint hope they do a full-detail normal kit as well. Body is matte, not textured, but just dull. Doesn't have that typical snap kit shine.

    Spray the dark grey/black, then silver Sharpie for the spokes and rim. 
    Or, alternatively, spray the silver with a lacquer then spray the dark gray with an enamel and remove the dark gray from the spokes with thinner.

    Yeller.
  5. Brett Barrow added a post in a topic General Lee that I would like to build   

    Some Generals had the vinyl top trim, especially early ones. IIRC the "hero" car always had it, so sanding the texture off the 69 isn't as hard as it would be if you had to take off the trim.  The Fireball Vectors might be a little big, as they are 24th scale. The ones from the General Lee glue kit aren't too bad. You can also find decent Vectors in the AMT Farrah' s Foxy Vette/Eckler' s Corvette and their offspring reissues. Slixx is doing a new GL decal sheet that looks like it'll be good. You'll have to scratch up a decent push bar, there were several variations over the run of the show.

    Stevens isn't doing exclusive reissues any more.  Anything they list will be available from Round 2, they might just be the only ones showing them right now, but they are normal Round 2 reissues.  
    Source: I worked for Stevens for 14 years.

    The S&H Torino is already our #2 best seller (behind the Moebius Ford P/Us) solely on preorders. Plenty of folks remember the show.

    Moebius should be releasing a '70 eventually. I doubt it will be that soon.
  12. Brett Barrow added a post in a topic AMT Shell Tanker coming?   

    It'll be under the Lindberg label, just like the last umpteen versions of the L700.

    I do see a Shell Tanker under the AMT lable, too, #AMT918.  If I had to guess on that one, I'd say it's the Texaco Tanker with new decals, but I don't know for sure.  I can guarantee it's not new tooling, though.

    Every time I see Revell at a show and they have a suggestion sheet out I write in "Restore the Little T".
