  1. I have the Clear Cougar body (unfortunately painted Yellow. I tried to strip the paint off but was only partly successful )and it has the Roof Hatch... The MK Kenz & Leslie Cougar FC's body resembles that of the Eddie Schartman Cougar as shown.

    My guess is the Dyno Don Cougar FC will be reissue of the Model King K&L Cougar FC..which would have the incorrect hood scoop opening for one thing.

  2. I understand what you are saying.. I was thinking of using the Sedan and the hemi and interior from the Moebius / Model King '65 Plymouth Melrose Missle..

    Another question ..is the interior of the Moebius / Model King '65 Plymouth Melrose Missle correct?  The reason I ask is I have seen photos of the interior and the car had the interior panels and seats that match the Moebius sedan.

  3. If you read pg 2 of the Model Car Science article. It states the Astro wheels have dual spool plates with Walnut spokes.  Perhaps the Texture was the was AMT replicated the Dual spool plates and Walnut spokes..Since this is a Custom vehicle I'm not going to concern myself with the texture.. Just paint to add color to the wheels


  4. Something else I found while searching for info on the Surf Woodie was George Barris produced a Motorized Surf Board to go with the Surf Woodie.

    There is a Motorized Surf Board in the reissue Gramdpa Munsters Drag-U-La.

    You'll notice the one in the Dragula kit is different that the one in the photo(Off the net)

    Not sure what type engine is on the board in the photo.

  5. I had one of the first issues of the Surf Woodie why back when..

    Fortunately, I've been able to pick up several copies of the reissue (2003 ?). So I could build each version. But I'll probably make a few changes..Change the tires,wheels, engine etc. for the non woodie versions.

    The engine would look kool in a '60's Mustang..


  6. Here is a scan of the article on the Surf Woodie from Hot Rod magazine Apr. 1965

    The Body color appears to be close to Testors Boyds Roadster Orange.. However I have photos of the Surf Woodie that shows it in a different color.. I'll post those  in another thread

  7. 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..

  8. 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.

  9. 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
