Ok,fellow modelers,correct me if I'm wrong but this looks to have been a simple task of taking the two different style scoops and the slicks from the two '64 Dodge kits,tooling the mags,and doing up the decal sheet.Otherwise it's the '64 Plymouth kit.What would have taken 6 years for this kit to show up? I too saw that $39.99 price at Hobby Lobby.Ouch. When the Hobby Lobby stores around here do a clearance the kits are priced at 40% off-just like having a coupon.
There are some differences at the front between the new tool '56 & '57 Revell kits and the new tool AMT chassis mainly around the engine compartment area.Nothing unchangeable, just a difference in the philosophies of the two companies of what part got molded with what other part.
I built the '56 sedan as a kid and had no real problems with it.Sometimes being young and dumb has advantages!I still have the model in my stash though pieces have graduallly fallen off of it.Also in my stash I have a couple of the '55 hardtops built way back by a buddy and as I recall the opening panels fit well.I also have unbuilt 70s versions of the '55 and the '57 Nomad in my stash.
The Downriver club did this theme last year.Leave it to me to come up with a stumper(heh heh).I built a stock AMT '29 Model A roadster.Nobody guessed the name of the song(not even a guy who's in the Model A Restorer's club). (It's "Henry Made a Lady Out Of Lizzie")
If someone can't tell that the '62 Chevy in your picture is a model then maybe they need glasses more than I need mine.This isn't a knock on your model or the picture.The indicators are there if one just studies the photograph.Keep on composing and posting your shots the way you desire.I like them the way they're presented.
