    1965 Plymouth Belvedere I Sedan
    After seeing what everyone has been saying about warped bodies in there Moebius kits of late, I guess I have I been lucky. None of mine have been warped.
    The only issue for me was the very faint panel lines on the body. I rescribed the panels line and primed the body with Duplicolor primer and went looking through my paints to try and use up some of what I have. I found some MCW paint that I have had for a few years and decided to use it. It is #7057 Light Turquoise Metallic from the 1970 Chrsyler Paint line. I sprayed the interior with Tamiya CHampagne Gold (TS-75) which looks close the factory color for the A-990 cars to me. Going for the sleeper look by using the whitewalls from the Moebius 65 Sateliite kit and the dual carb 426 Wedge.

    I guess I have been lucky as none of my Plymouths have been warped. Cudos to Moebius in looking into the depth of there panel lines on future releases.

    Finally got this completed after starting it back in 2011. Wow!! Has it been that long, time flies while trying to raise 2 small kids.
    As a recap - Tamiya Park Green on body and Tamiya Racing Green Roof - Interior Testors Light Earth and Testors Fabric Tan.
    Box Stock build with fuel line added.

    How about some mid 50's or mid 60's Buicks? Can one assume they could use some of there Chevelle chassis' for the 60's and there great tri-5 chassis' for the 50's Buicks? I'm a Mopar man so I'm not 100% sure on the underpinnings of the GM Cars but would love some 50's and 60's Buicks

    I for one, can not wait to get my hands on another great Moebius kit. Thank you Moebius for being these kits to market. Without YOU we may have never seen some of these cars in kit form. Even if they have some details that some people have issues with, it will not stop me from buying. If it looks like what it's suppose to be then, great. We could all just go back to the Plamer kits if you don't like what is being kitting now a days.

    Which is correct?
    Barracuda - Restored

    Barracuda - Original

    AWB - Restored

    AWB - Original

    To my eye the AWB is to Gold but, I don't know for sure. I do know that Bruce (current owner of Barracuda) is now a member of the Golden Commandos and was in talks with Ray Kobe of the Commandos during restorationof the Barracuda.
     
    Either way, this is a very welcomed kit. I know I will be buying a case of them. Can we hope for the sister Dodge next?

    Your welcome Steve. Here's the link to the Commandos Barracuda build I have been working on. I'm hung up on the fender well headers right now. Need to get them done before I can move on.
