    Yeah. I already have a few of Ronnie's cars in my collection and a few more to build after these. I have started the Black 1962 Impala, both 63 Impalas that he drove. I have started an Omni as well. The 1967 GTX I'm currently working on will be the 440 car, 1970 Cuda. I have already built his 1962 Bel Air, 2 versions of the 1964 Comet, 1967 Hemi GTX, the old Johan 1971 Cuda (which I want to rebuild), 1971 Duster. I have items to build the 1961 Pontiac, resin 1966 Baccaruda long and short nose, 68 Cudas, Johan Superbird, resin grille and hood for 1970 Duster, MPC Duster, MPC 1972 Cuda, Dakota ProStock Truck

    Finally made some progresson this. Need to paint and install shocks, radiator hoses and touch up things on chassis and engine.


    Need to finish up trim work on interior.

    This is a subject matter that somebody should bring a full detail kit out of. Would love to have one to build myself.
    Yours looks amazing. Love the color. Great job. Thanks for sharing.

    I've stepped away from this build again temporally to get some other Sox cars ready for paint to paint them at the same time.
    See one of the other builds here.

    1965 Sox & Martin Belvedere Super Stock
    Since I was getting my 1965 Altered ready for paint and since I'm tired of waiting on Moebius so I just purchased one of there 1965 Belvedere II kits. I figured since I was going to be airbrushing the blue on a couple of Sox cars, why not start another one and then I wouldn't have to dirty the airbrush more than once.
    Reference picture. I have another picture as well that I need to find. Not too mention Slixx just brought back there decals to include the Super Stock car as well as the AWB.

    I referenced the Melrose Missile package rear tray piece and made my own. Looks the part. I would have taken the piece out of the Missile kit but, I plan on building that soon. I was able to purchase some parts on Ebay for the headers out of the Missile kit.



    The only complaint I have with the body is the lack of depth of the anel lines. Had to rescribe them and need to clean up a few areas before paint.

    After 2 years, let the painting commence. I just finished reading the new Sox & Martin book that has been released and it got me to thinking about this and others I have to build.

    I was able to find this article. It starts out with the short car and then progresses into the long nose car. Thought I would share for anyone interested. Looks like the frame is square tube, like the resin kit has.

    1966 Dick Landy Long Nose Dart
    I just received my resin body from Speed City Resin and have started to do research for this car. Having some trouble locating info on chassis. This is about time that they started using tube chassis' and wondering if this car had a full tube chassis? Does anyone have any reference they are willing to share. I have a bunch of builds started and I won't be geting to this one for a little while. I have some pictures I found online but no clear underhood shots of chassis.


    Here's the Speed City Resin Kit


    The chassis it comes with.

    I must be lucky, just purchased another 65 Belvedere Sedan this weekend and it shows no signs of warpage. Loving what Moebius has bee bringing out to us modelers.

    One question though, did the drag racer really use these type headers? Never really seen to much myself on this but I know Nascar teams did.

  13. jjsipes added a post in a topic Moebius California Flash 1965 Belvedere   

    I guess I have been lucky as I have had no problem with any Meobius kits due to them. When I did mess up a 54 Hudson body, I contacted them and asked about a replacement at my expense and they were very nice about it and told me how much just for a body, I paid and it within the week. Great customer service in my experience. Great kits as well and much wanted subjects too. I for one will continue purchasing there car and truck kits.

    Yeah, and about I time I purchase a bunch of the sedans and Melrose kits then they'll bring out the Leal kit which has everything I need for some builds in it.
