    I've got one with transmission from the Revell '78 El Camino if you're interested.

    I've said it before, but they should really scale up their new release of the '70 Cuda and sell it as a 1/12 kit, preferably as a 2n1 or 3n1 configuration. There has never been a 1/12 MOPAR kit, the smaller scale MOPAR kits are popular, as have been the 1/12 Chevy kits that Revell/Monogram has sold. The models should already be there, they would just need to be scaled up and modified a bit with a bit more detail.

    About how big of tires are you looking for?

    No updates again, but I'm still in. It's in the backburner currently while I'm working on a large scale build.

    Check out the AMT 1980 Bronco kit, it has a nice set of older wheels and tires with separate center hubs.

    Pm 426-hemi, he makes some great resin Mopar engines and engine parts!

    Are you looking for the stock hood or the custom hood with the scoop? I have the stock one available if that's the one you want.

    I have that Corvette also, but it's under the Doyusha label. I do agree that it is much better detailed compared to the Porsche!

    I did not notice that, but for all the work that would be required to fix it, I'm not too bothered.

    1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 3.0: New Project
    This build will ultimately be a representation of the 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 3.0, and will be built using the Doyusha Porsche 911 Turbo kit. This kit has its share of issues, since it was designed to be motorized and to have an electrical system to power some lights. The other problem is this kit was designed to resemble the 1973 Porsche 911 Turbo concept, but does not have any discernable turbo assembly in the engine bay.
    Here's the kit I'll be starting with (image courtesy of The Creative Explorer):

    The nice thing is the bumpers and wide body were used on both the Turbo concept and the RS 3.0, as well as the larger spoiler. I plan on painting mine lime green, which there was at least one documented RS 3.0 painted in this color. The one thing I'm going to do away from stock is give it a set of 19" Fusch wheels, using the tires from the 2010 Shelby GT500.
    Anyways, the engine was already started by myself before, However, the top shroud and rocker covers were painted orange based on one pic I found, but in reality the shroud should be red, and the rocker covers should be black based on further research. The intake assembly was also an odd design compared to what I've found in pics, so I removed it.

    I attached the rear inner fenders to the floor, since it will all be painted body color, and I fitted in the engine cradle to see what needs to be done. I found that I need to add a filler piece between the cradle and the firewall that will also be used to mount the shocks.

    For the front, I found that the trunk/fuel tank area is not like any actual cars I can find. The closest one is a early 70's Carrera 2.7, but the fuel tank in the kit is too close to the passenger cabin. What I did is cut the fuel tank off, and I will create a filler piece that will move the fuel tank closer to the nose of the body. I also plan on dumping the "spare tire" as well.

    The one trend I can't stand has to do with rat rods, though not the ones you're probably thinking of. Do this, go to Craigslist and search for "rat rod". Notice how most vehicles are either pre war cars with rust, cars sitting in a field titled "rat rod project", or simply any vehicle painted matte black.

    Just ask him when you order, I did with the BFG All Terrain T/A tires and he sent me a few sets of 5.

    No updates for this month other than buying the paint for the chassis. Haven't had much time for building lately!
  14. Jordan White added a post in a topic What is the first choice of a new tool you would like to see by any manufacturer?   

    One new tool of an older subject I would love to see is a 1/12 scale Mopar muscle car, such as a 1970 Charger or Cuda. They are popular subjects, can be made into a few different releases, and there are currently no Mopar products in 1/12 scale, while there are close to a half dozen gm kits and a couple Ford kits already.
    One tool of a newer subject I would love to see is a previous gen Ram 2500 or 3500 with the Cummins. Again, popular trucks, can be made into many different versions, and there are no current truck kits other than the Meng F350. Plus, people would probably buy the kit for the engine alone.
  15. Jordan White added a post in a topic What would you pay for a new, high quality kit of a new large scale subject?   

    I really wish that Revell would make a 1/12 Cuda of some sort, maybe even based off their new 1970 kit tooling.
