  1. Super Bee into a wagon

    I like your progress! I used to have a 68 Coronet wagon. When the 66-67 B-bodies were updated in 68 the 2 and 4 door models got a slight top chop but the wagon and convertible models did not. This should not be an issue with your build since the Monogram 69 Coronet has always looked a little tall to my eye. Carmak
  2. '63 F100 - XL

    Take a look at Monogram 58 T-bird seats. The pattern is very close to what you need. They are 1/24 scale so it would be your call if they look right.
  3. What AMT/MPC Molds Might Still Exist at Round 2?

    I thought it was made into the vampire van.
  4. What AMT/MPC Molds Might Still Exist at Round 2?

    I did not get glass with it. I have the convertible glass and it fits well (front and rear).
  5. What AMT/MPC Molds Might Still Exist at Round 2?

    I thought all the tooling went from Iowa to Mexico then to China. I can't remember when it left Iowa, I have had the T-bird 15+ years.
  6. What AMT/MPC Molds Might Still Exist at Round 2?

    Just before the molds left Iowa the 66 T-bird promo / craftsman tool was sampled in error (wrong label on tool). This was not part of the hanger shot program, it was someone looking to find a particular model for personal reasons. I received a full set of nice looking parts (with engine block off plate) from a friend in Dyersville. The parts look good and very little flash. Would be interesting to know how many times something like this happened.
  7. Hum3d - Large Source of 3D Modelled Autos

    So would it be safe to assume the files are based on high quality laser scans? That would explain the exterior surfaces only aspect of the model. How good was the import file? Surface gaps and multi layered surfaces? Is the import a single file and you break it into multiple components to print? What cad are you using? Thanks. Carmak
  8. You Ford guys may know the answer to this.

    My 63 is a Country Sedan. Not sure if they used the name all the way to 1970.
  9. You Ford guys may know the answer to this.

    I could not agree more. I bought those wheels from the original owner who bought them in 67 for his new Camaro as summer wheels. When he traded the Camaro for a 73 Monte Carlo they would not fit (14") so he put them in the garage attic. I have owned them since 1992.
  10. You Ford guys may know the answer to this.

    Here is a picture I took tonight. My son and I were working on the brakes. She has been off the road since the mid 90's.
  11. You Ford guys may know the answer to this.

    I have a 1:1 63 Ford Country Sedan wagon. It has a 352/three on the tree/overdrive. It is also chestnut in color. In 63 you could not get overdrive in a big block wagon and chestnut was not available on wagons. I bought it from the son of the original owner (it is an 80% plus original paint car) and his dad ordered it that way. He was not a big wig, just a loyal Ford buyer the dealer wanted to keep happy.
  12. 1957 Chevrolet 150 Four door sedan

    It is my understanding that the roof and rear window are not just similar but the same on Tir-Five 2dr and 4dr sedans. In the 1:1 world people are converting 4dr sedans into 2dr sedans using repo parts. Funny how we are doing the opposite in the scale model world. Carmak
  13. 65 Bonneville Wagon?

    I saw the 66 Bonneville on E-bay. Was not sure if TM made it or was just selling it. Did not have look of other TM resins. Also saw the Coronet wagon TM has. I owned a 68 Coronet wagon for years and I would advise comparing the rear of the TM Coronet and a 1:1 to be sure you are OK with the differences (bumper and roof). Carmak
  14. Very nice work! I have been thinking about printing a retro camper but I have been to busy with other projects to model it up. Which cad program did you use to model you truck? Would you be willing to share STL files? Carmak
  15. Last night my wife calls me into the living room where she is watching the Hallmark movie Elevator Girl. The male lead in the movie builds model cars. I sit down and watch and they refer to them again and then show them again. All of the models are Revell / Monogram. So I have now watched a Hallmark movie looking for model cars. How about that!
