    They may not be totally correct, but they are the same general design.

    The one thing that I don't quite get about this is how Revell loves to use the same tire for multiple kits, thus it seems like they could spread the cost out over those several kits (which I'm sure is what they did in the past). Granted, the other thing they could do is go to some of the smaller companies that aren't owned by any of the big ones.

    In theory, it's similar to the Lenco transmission setup that had a stick for each gear. It's also a variation on the ratchet-shifter where you are "manually" shifting through the gears, but don't need a clutch. The main stick can also just be used like a normal automatic shifter. It really was just a gimmick, but it certainly was interesting.

    Actually, GM sold a version of the Monte Carlo SS in Mexico that came with a 4-speed manual for 1984 only.

    April went by quickly! Still in, and hoping to get back to work on this in the coming weeks.

    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.

    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.
