Intended, yes, and that's how they're advertised. But I looked at how many other folks were using them with other paints with no problems reported. I would guess it's more a liability thing on the manufacturer's part. They use a coreless motor computer-type fan and those don't spark, so I'm not too worried about it. I don't use anything too nasty anyway, rarely stronger than Tamiya lacquer.
I bought one of these earlier this summer. Works great. Still smell a little bit while spraying, so I'd still wear the respirator if spraying the really bad stuff. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00B2TESUQ?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00
The biggest thing is '70 GTO's had the endura front bumper standard (and the different front fenders that mated to it) and LeMans had the steel bumper standard. To call it a GTO isn't fair to the LeMans or Tempest models, they were cool cars on their own.
Don and I used to work together and I remember him describing this one to me shortly after he built it. I know it's all plastic, forget how he modified the cowl, I think he grafted in a section from the Revell kit along the lower portion of the cowl and doors. I'll send him a message to check in, I see he hasn't logged into his other account since August!
[puts on pedant hat] Technically it's not a GTO, it's a LeMans. [takes off pedant hat] That's pretty cool and it's weird that the sticks had benches and the auto had buckets, it would make more sense the other way around.
We're taking pre-orders for it now. This is probably one of those kits that will sell out the first run quickly then take a while being restocked, so preordering is a good idea if you want one! http://www.megahobby.com/fergusonpetitgristractor124heller.aspx
I'm really looking forward to this. My grandad has an Ford 8N that I grew up riding on and learing to drive. Shouldn't be too hard to convert, mayybe if we're lucky we might even get a resin conversion kit or if we're reeeeallly lucky Heller will see fit to do the Ford version.
Not my grandad's actual tractor, but it looks just like this - only dirty!
Only thing I can think of is the channeled version says use a different floor which is for a future variant while both versions should use the same floor. It's pretty obvious when test fitting that it's wrong it doesn't mate up to the firewall.
