  1. "So lately I have seen some models posted in the Finished section that were obviously flawed but were given praise as though they could win at a model contest." Could you post a link to one of these flawed models and explain what the flaw is?
  2. I'd say you'd need a shore hardness up around 60, maybe even 70. You can color them with Tempera black paint powder. That's what I did when I was making slot car tires (I used Shore 30 and that was even too soft for slicks). IIRC Smooth-On has a "starter" kit. You get a pound of the stuff, so you can make plenty of mistakes.
  3. As per Richard Bartrop in the Tempest Kit topic: "The Tempest is one I would like to see get the Moebius treatment. Too bad they've been told by their new owner to get out of the model car business." Say what?
  4. BTW: what year was this frame used?
  5. 1960 Valiant SW Gold body, not green. 170 c.i. Slant Six, 3 on the floor
  6. But the lyric shoulda been: But parked in a rickety old garage is a brand-new, shiny red, Ramcharger Dodge Just to be accurate.
  7. Late to this discussion. Brilliant work, Ace, just brilliant. I love those old /MSP cars too. And kudos for the lesson re: "nose high".
  8. Among other things, AMT had a couple Offy roadsters. Monogram also had an Offy roadster.
  9. Common belief here in NJ is that turn signals summon demons.

    If I Ran Revell....

    Guess I'll never see that '39 Stude gasser. >sigh< I woulda bought two.
  11. I was going to suggest this mod to keep it pure Mopar, but iirc the NHRA wanted stock heads.
  12. It's in the food. Our food.

    If I Ran Revell....

    More Gassers, like a '39 Stude Businessman's Coupe. Two engine options (SBC and a 392) either blown or injected (builders choice), pie-crust slicks, the whole mid-'60s look. Oh, and please, keep it class legal - include two front seats and those damned splash panels. Yup, I prefer early iron. Then you can have all the dull-as-dishwater showroom stock kits you want.
