    Been there, done that.  Novus #2 and a Q-tip works for me
  2. pack rat added a post in a topic no more MPC   

    I wouldn't condemn the label based on one example.  Yes, some of the MPC kits are based on old tooling that has seen better days, but some are better than others.
    I would suggest consulting this board's review/workbench/under glass sections to get other's opinions on a particular kit before you take the plunge.  If you don't see what you're looking for...ask.  There are lots of helpful people here.

    The Bat Machine has SS emblems on the front fenders and a console.  The built-up I have has non-stock pleated bucket seats; I don't know if stock buckets were also in the box.

    Thanks, Steve.  
    I did that many years ago , and at the time I figured I would probably never get my hands on a decent '60 Dart.  It was a tribute to my dad's favorite car that he got new in the same color combo.  
    It was so long ago I don't remember exactly how I did the upholstery; I believe I used the body color as a base (maybe tinted with another color for contrast), dullcoated all or part of it, hand-painted the dark vertical stripes, then carefully scraped the paint away from the piping.
    BTW...I think yours looks better.

    Now I'm confused re the brake fluid thing.  This '64 Vette had (I think) AMT lacquer on the body and the windows. Brake fluid was the only thing I could find at the time to remove it.  The windows didn't frost at all.
    Also...to keep the thread on track, another before/after.  This one was almost too far gone.

    Yes, those Vettes are gorgeous. I too have a pile of C2 Vettes waiting in the wings (and a pile of re-issued '63's for parts).

    Now THAT'S a nutty idea.  I like it.  How about a Manx chassis?

    Looking at the pics of my 59 has me salivating to build/restore a '60.......too bad I haven't scored one yet.

    Found some more.  Thanks to John at Round2 for including the convertible boot in the recent Corvair reissue.  Pics are showing up out of order but I think you can distinguish between the "befores" and "afters".

    Love this thread.  I wish I had more "before" pics of some of mine 






  13. pack rat added a post in a topic MPC '71 Dodge Demon re release   


    That was the plan all along.  When word got out that they were had a '71 Demon in the works it was assumed by many that they were just going to reissue the MPC kit, Round2 never mentioned an MPC '71 Demon reissue.

    Don't know how rare it is, but the AMT '70 Mustang has been on my hit-list for years       
  15. pack rat added a post in a topic TRULY RAREST OF THE RARE 1/25 MUSCLE CAR KITS OF ALL TIME   

    I would add the MPC 70 and 71 Cyclones, the 71 Demon, and the Johan 69 Rebel
