  1. curb added a post in a topic Moebius '54 Hudsons   

    I haven't picked up the '54 Hudson yet. But I admit I'm not looking foreward to the parts having Texture.
    I guess I'll have to see what happens when paint is applied.
    One would have to ask Why id there Texture to the parts?
    Personaly I like nice smooth surfaces to apply paint to.

    I hope Moebius goes back to the standard smooth texture..

    Contest Rules
    I would like to see a Standard set of Rules applied to contests.
    obviously this would require a considerable amount of work and cooperation among model clubs holding Contests but once done, anyone entering a contest would know the rules.
    Obviously clubs would want different classes that would pertain to their club but I'm sure other clubs would use that class also.
    Is there a form that a club uses in judging?

    The Shelf Class....What is a shelf model?
    - one that has no detail or one that is partly detailed or one that is fully detailed?
    - Should the club that holds the Contest have a member that sponsors a class - enter in that class? And get First Place?

    Yes we need a Standard set of Rules so everyone is on the same playing field.

    The Hemi should work in the Streamliner. Just use the Potvin Front Blower asssembly. The engine cover may meed trimming at the edges but you'll have to check that out.
    I have the Streamliner(Cad powered) and Dragster(Allison powered) on the bench.
    I just finished the Fiat, Walt's Puffer A/A

  12. curb added a post in a topic '66(?) Custom Dodge truck interior   

    I'm sorry. I forgot to mention the history of the Resin Dodge.
    Mastered by Charlie Rowley, originally cast by Tom Coolidge and now in the hands of Keith Sorci.
    Sorry if I've misspelled any names.
    I might add that I also have a 4dr crew cab version.
    Hope Keith starts casting these again.

  14. curb added a post in a topic Revell's 68 Mustang GT 2n1 kit   

    The floor pan has the '68 rear seat pattern molded in. The seat back is a '67. This is the same in the DieCast '68 Bullett Mustang.
    Which leads me to believe there are molds for 2 sets of interiors.
    I was in touch with Revell and the person i talked to said the mix up was in China and they would look into what could be done.
    I still suggest emailing Revell and voicing opinions. I paid $24.oo Canadian and was expecting the '68 interior.
