    Nicely styled build. I love the color too. I really like the idea of the taillights too.

    Well, if that's your point maybe you should have said that in the first place? Just asking about "no love" for that kit makes people think you're asking why people don't like it, which they obviously do. Ask a clear question, better chance of getting the response you're looking for.

    Who said there was no love for it? It's the only way to build a stock version straight out of the box. And some of the body proportions are superior to the new tool. Neither is perfect, but with a little work both this and the new tool can be built into a really great model.

    This was part of their custom parts line, not a promo part replacement. The center sheet metal section is separate from the LH and RH bumpers. Really nice piece, just wish I didn't get 2 of the same side.

    Lots to look at. Very well done

    Looking good Bill. I love following along on your builds

    It may not have anything to do with the crazy last couple years they have had leading up to the closing. Nobody is immune to an occasional mistake. I ordered a set of the 55 Pontiac front bumpers and surround from them a few years ago. When I went to use them I discovered I had 2 LH bumpers and no RH. Shame on me for not contacting them to fix the issue, now I'm out of luck. I'm sure they would have fixed it if I had let them know.

    I have a master in with a well known resin caster for a top with a heavier chop. Hopefully I hits the market soon because I want to build one too.

    Clean and stunning build, as always from you Steve.

    Very nice buildup. The color is perfection. I've wanted to build this kit since it came out, just never got around to it.

    I also think this would make a great article (or series of articles) for the magazine.

    I've often dreamed of combining the kits as you are to get the "ultimate" Ala Kart, so I'll be following along intently. Perhaps at the end you could also do a comparison to the Danbury Mint diecast?

    Aww man. I was hoping they were from a different source because they looked like a bigger diameter. The search continues

    Love this build. Rather than search through all 10 pages to find the answer, I'll just ask. Any idea where those yellow front wheels are from? They look to be a larger diameter than the similar ones in the AMT Double Dragster.

    That's why I'm asking. I don't have a solution. I'm sure if I rubbed around this body some more paint would come off in other places. I'm just lucky that most of the paint survived the assembly process. Most...
