  2. John Force 1978 Corvette funny car

    John Force has raced a lots of different Funny Cars over the years, I have been to the JFR Headquarters in Yorba Linda, CA several times (most recent was back in October 2018 and I have also met the man himself a couple of times) and many of his old cars are on display in the museum. The first Funny Car he ever raced (or should I say tried to race) was a rear engined 71-73 Ford Mustang, in 1975 he had a Chevy Vega, 1976-77 he used Chevy Monza bodys, 1978-80 Chevy Corvette, 1980-82 Chevy Citation, 1983-84 Chevy Camaro, 1985 Chevy Corvette, 1986 Chevy Cavalier, 1987 Old Firenza, 1988-93 Olds Cutlass, 1994 Chevy Lumina, 1995-97 Pontiac Firebird, 1997-2014 Ford Mustang and 2015-Present Chevy Camaro. He also had a short stint in a Fuel Altered back in the early 70's
  3. 2 of my Dad's F1 cars

    Very nice models both of them. The Lotus 78 with #6 was the last car Ronnie Peterson ever drove as he crashed at Monza September 10th 1978 and passed away the day after. The man could have been one of the greatest if he would have lived.
  4. B.R.B.O. Peterbilt 352

    Here are the best pictures I have found regarding the brake chamber placement borrowed from Pavel Amrich.
  5. B.R.B.O. Peterbilt 352

    You can find instructions here Clayton. https://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/truckkit_instructions/amt/t502_peterbilt_352/ They have instructions for most of the truck models sorted by kit manufacturer.
  6. The 150 "Black Widow" kit is a Utility Sedan, basically like a Business Coupe, so no back seat in them, but the regular Sedans has a back seat. If they are done right the rear fender spears are different on the 150, 210 and Bel Air, the 150/210 spears are much shorter.
  7. Revell 2019

    I might be stupid but isn't the Ranchero based on the 2 door wagon body style? If the Ranchero market is thin the Del Rio market should be about the same...I mean, a lot of people have asked for a correct Ranchero for ages as the old one is far from it, on the other hand I haven't heard many asking for a Del Rio Ranch Wagon kit, but they did a kit of it anyway...and at the same time didn't think further so it could be done as a Ranchero as well...a bit strange thinking if I may say. If I was planning a new tool for a car model I would try to get as many possibillities as I can for this tooling so I can get the most out of the investment. I just hope Blitz/Revell doesn't do as Round 2 has done with the kit brands they acquired and just reissue old kits with some modified and new parts and nothing new...some are fun to have back but how many can you have of the basically the same kit as most of them are. Of course they have to reissue kits where the tooling is paid for, but I want to see some all new tooling kits from time to time.
  8. Autocar dump coming this summer

    It would be nice...but the original issue was in 1971 and as far as I know it has never been reissued, so they have to find the tooling for the mixer and the other parts if it still exists and get licensing for it.
  9. Freightliner COE

    Nice truck.
  10. 63 Ford hubcaps

    I just put in an order.
  11. Torsion bar rear suspension questions

    As far as I know the rear torsion bar suspension was Kenworth only as I haven't seen it on any other trucks. I don't know exactly when it came, probably sometime in the 50's, but it was available up to the late 70's when air ride became more popular.
  12. CAT 966C

    Very nice builds...but 966C!?!?!???
  13. Are these both AMT Rigs? Help!

    They are not the first issue as they had torsion bar suspension mentioned above, I don't exactly know when the suspension was changed and all the re-issues including the recent ones are pretty much the same as these.
  14. Anybody else also a fan of Juha Airio?

    He is one of the best out there, I have not seen any of his work in person but the quality of his builds are immaculate.
  15. Here are the instructions for a version with the Pontiac engine, I think the difference between this kit and the one you have are the wheels and decals. https://public.fotki.com/drasticplasticsmcc/mkiba-build-under-c/instruction_sheetsh/instruction_sheets/revell-5/revell-56-ford-pick/
