    Yeah, that's if I can get one of the old R/M AAR's cheap enough. Prices seem kind of high on eBay if I'm only stealing a few parts out of it (and unlikely to ever use the rest of the parts for something else.

    I'm thinking hard about that too. But all of a sudden I'm pushing that $100 project mark, for what started as a desire to build a nice box stock model hahaha

    Hot rod versions of both the coupe and convertible include Edlebrock heads, chrome exhaust manifolds, and I believe 2 carb intake. Dropped front axle and spring. Ford 9 inch out back with a dropped spring.

    I love that the mods to make this are mostly scratchbuilt, and you execute it so well. Other then the old AAR parts(and Mustang air cleaner), and the addition of the beautiful Fireball Minilite wheels, there doesn't seem to be much outside sourcing. I'm not going to lie, I plan to use your build as a blueprint for my own down the road(as I'm sure others are as well). Thanks for bringing us along for the ride.

    Well fellows, I went ahead and took the plunge on a reissue Gulf sponsored Fujimi Mk.1 kit. Now I'll wait patiently for the HRM detail set to get back in stock at Model Builders Warehouse. Still debating if I want to go as far as the Studio27 photoetch set. Thanks everyone for their insight on this.

    Did I miss something, has this body made it to market yet?

    Following from the beginning, it's nice to see this one finished since you started with a cool concept. Cool little rod.

    Very cool. I like a lot of the small details like the air cleaners and exhaust.

    Very cool. I dig the worn look you're capturing here

    Looking forward to your next restock from HRM, I'm ready to place an order!
    BTW, great store. Easy to navigate.

    Fujimi/Revell Ford GT40 kits
    So, I've been wanting to build one of these for awhile. Still debating if I should plunk down the big bucks and get the beautiful resin conversion set from Historic Racing Miniatures to convert the Fujimi/Revell kit to full detail. I might get the Studio21 photoetch set as well. But, after watching the auctions for these Fujimi/Revell kits on the big auction site I have a couple questions.
    So, Fujimi originally offered the tooling, and then Revell sold their own versions of the same kit? And then Fujimi released the kit again? How recently?
    Also, does Fujimi offer 2 versions of this tooling? One with the rear engine cover as a separate part, and then one with the body all molded as one piece? The only version I've noticed to have the separate rear bodywork is the Gulf version with the body molded in light blue. Is that because it's a 68 car versus the rest which appear to be 66's? Are there other differences between the 66 vs 68 kits, or just the separate rear bodywork?
    Also, if anyone has thoughts on their experiences building this kit? From what I've heard it really is a nice kit.

    Man, this is phenomenal in its subtlety. So very well executed, with attention paid to the small but important details. And knowing what you started out with for the body, I know most everyone was skeptical when you first showed us the parts. But you pulled it off. Well done!

    Thanks Steve and Don, that list should keep me busy.

    Hobby shops in the Portland OR area
    Travelling to the Portland area for work this week, and was wondering if anyone knew of an good hobby shops in the area. Google didn't turn up a whole lot of places that looked like they sold models, besides Hobbytown. Anything else. I would be willing to drive a little ways because I'll have time for sightseeing too.
    I plan to try at least one of the several restaurants that have been featured on Diners,Drive-Ins, and Dives that are in the area.
