      Unfortunately, we were unable to upgrade the board software due to some technical difficulties. We will try again once we get the problems worked out.

    This, popular on "stance whips", whatever that means:

     I'm sure Aoshima has done some in their wheel and tire sets.  Not sure which ones, though.  
     I used to be with it, but then they changed what "it" was. Now, what I'm with isn't "it", and what's "it" seems weird and scary to me.

    We got it yesterday.

    They don't give you transfer tape?  The Pegasus ones have transfer tape.

    Pretty sure that one's the old Monogram Super Modified.
    Not that bad a kit - http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/70865-don-edmunds-supermodified-reissue/  
    They've also done other kits of some of the Lindberg modifieds and AMT modifieds, its the '32 Ford kits that used the stock kits.

    Yeah, the molds definitely still exist but some parts probably need restoring if they go the full retro treatment.   Dirt Track Racecars did the coupe and Vicky during the time 3rd parties could do exclusive runs just before Round2 took over.   Looks like they still have some left.  http://www.dirttrackracecars.com/OrderModels.htm   All those DTR "jalopy" kits were just the standard AMT kits with instructions on how to modify into a jalopy racer.  
    I would have thought Ebay would be full of them.  Maybe it is time for a reissue!

    Mk II is a much different beast.  Scoops and radiator outlet are totally different.  Tail is totally different.  Basically everything body-wise behind the doors.

    I don't think it's anything more than Round2 hasn't gotten around to them yet, the Vicky is the only one that's gotten the retro-deluxe treatment so far and that was just fairly recently.   The 5-window was run near the end of the RC2 era.

    I guess these are safe to circulate now.  They were saved to my computer July 2014.  Resin tooling mockups of the AFX Plymouth.

    Hey, glad somebody got some pics! Thanks!
    Looks like they got the taillights of the 70 Charger wrong, but in a good way.  They're really still 2 lights with the sheetmetal divider painted black and the trim just makes it look like one unit.

    I had two, one was yellowed and really showed up on the white, the other had a big splodge of one of the other ink colors right smack dab in the big clear open area.  Then it wrinkled after MicroSol and I hoped I could sand some of it out after clear then this happened when I started sanding.  It's been stripped and will get repainted and I have a line on a Fred Cady sheet if my post in Wanted doesn't come through.

    But seriously, they account for it.  They know something like .5% will be bad.  A run of 5,000 kits will really be 5,004 or maybe 5,016.  If they need them for parts, they're there, if not they're gravy.

    They just write it off.

    Whelp...   
    it wouldn't be one of my projects if something didn't go wrong. Anybody got a spare black one?

    Black LT-1 hood stripe from AMT 1970-72 Corvette
    I would prefer one that hasn't yellowed as it's going over white. I had 2 but one was too yellowed and the other had a big spotch of ink from one of the other colors in the clear section and I ended up messing it up trying to fix it. Thanks in advance!
