  1. Force added a post in a topic Lowering the 66 AMT Pro Street Nova   

    You can do as Racing Champions (RC2) suggested when they did the Rides Magazine version wich is based on the 66 Pro Street Nova, this was before Round2 took over.

    Here are the parts you were supposed to use...I don't know what they were thinking. 
    Are the drive shafts made out of rubber or...?

    That's correct.
    The more expensive and larger Citation and Corsair was built on the Mercury-Lincoln plattform and the cheaper Pacer, Ranger, Bermuda, Villager and Roundup was based on the smaller Ford plattform.

    They are from the Revell "Soff Seal" 57 Chevy, "Jukebox Ford" 55 Ford and "Christine" 58 Plymouth Pro Sportsman kits, the "Charles Carpenter" 55 Chevy had Boyds wheels instead of these Centerline Convo Pro wheels.
    The Soff Seal 57 and Carpenter 55 Chevy kits has been reissued with generic decals.
  5. Force added a post in a topic WANTED: 1/25 box trailer, 1980s   

    That trailer was originally made by Ertl wich did Great Dane trailers, and they also did a reefer version of it.
    AMT did Fruehauf trailers, one reefer, one dry goods and one exterior post trailer, they also did the Trailmobile moving van and Pup trailers.

    The 50 has a fuel door on the drivers side quarter panel and the 49 do not as it has a visible fuel cap.

  10. Force added a post in a topic What was the first "Mustang" kit done by Revell ?   

    The first kits of the 1/24 1964-5-6 Mustang kits above was released in 1985, one year before Revell and Monogram was bought by Odessey Partners Of New York in 1986 and was merged into one company, but Revell and Monogram lived on as separate brands until 1996-7 when all the models from them were released under both names, later the Monogram name was dropped and all Revell and Monogram models were branded Revell...the Monogram name was later re-instated for some models by Hobbico who now owns the brands.
    The largest problem for those who try to keep up with the origins of model kits is that there are nothing to tell what the model kits originally was as they could be issued under any of the two names regardless of origin...but one rule of thumb is that Revell never did any 1:24th scale kits as they used the 1:25th scale,  Monogram on the other hand did most of their kits in that scale...so if the kit is in 1:24th scale it's originally a Monogram kit, some late Monogram kits were also released in 1:25th scale...but that was after the Odessey buy and the companys merged into one.
  11. Force added a post in a topic Revell '64 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt Kit Parts Review   

    Mark is right, the 1962-65 Fairlane was not built on the Falcon/Mustang platform, the 1962-63 Mercury Meteor is the only other car with the same chassis.
    I had a 1964 Fairlane 500 Sports Coupe for 12 years and sold it last year, so I know that it isn't much from the Falcon/Mustang chassis that fits these Fairlanes.

    I appreciate the work you have done Aaron, I really do...and I'm grateful that you had a large part in the re-issue of the Malone trucks so we can get them for reasonable prices, even tho' I had two each of the original kits I bought the new ones anyway, and I'm eagerly waiting for the Bandag Bandit and Hideout Truck.
    I can only go by what I have seen in the pictures I have as I unfortunately never have seen any of the trucks in person, I have saved every picture I have found so far of the Malone trucks, and I still do when I find pictures I don't have, as I have allways thought the Malone trucks were cool.
    Most of the pictures are saved from the Tyrone Malone Facebook site and Ken Harris Fotki albums and some from magazines and other places, but I have not found any good pictures of the interior from when Malone had it other than some parts of it.
    Today's interior in the Super Boss may be close to what Malone had but there are some small differences after what I can see in the old pictures I have compared to the Reis version, the door panels and dash top are two examples where there are differences between then and now.
    The interior I described in my earlier post in this thread was the early Bandag Bandit interior before the cab change, the first interior in the Bandit was blue, white and yellow and the second one wich the truck still has is all black...the Super Boss interior has allways been black as far as I know.

    I miss one decal on the decal sheet in the new Super Boss kits, and it wasn't on the old ones either.
    After "Tyrone Malone" script on the small lip above the "Bandag The Greatest Name In Retreading" decal that goes between the tail lights it should also be a "Mr D.D.D." script but it's missing.
    On most of the pictures I have the "Mr D.D.D." script is present, both on the 1974-78 Thermo King version and the 1979-88 Bandag version wich the kit is supposed to be.
