  1. '70 Impala AMT

    That's a really beauty Paul, like all others you have a knack for adding just the right details !!! How did you detail the thin side moldings ? Paint the center first then foil ? -Steve
  2. That might have been my post on Spotlight. 65 Ford Poppy Red is the color Dave Metzner and I came up with while doing the research for the Moebius California Flash. I just don't recall where we found the information. Steve
  3. Last I heard is they were working on getting licensing from one of the race teams. Right now the decisions on if and or when to run this lands of the new owner, which is Larry at Pegasus. It didn't take too many angry emails to get him to change the box art on the 70 F100 4x4's, so take it from there guys ….. FWIW, the first two versions of the 65-66 F100's are due early next month and the Nicholson A/FX Comet shortly after that. That's small progress anyway, don't know what's coming after that. Steve
  4. the testor's johan reissues

    I know that RPM/Testors paid a significant portion of the design and tooling cost for the Dodge Charger kits J. Lloyd/Lindberg produced. Al some later point RPM/Testors wanted out of the Plastic kit business and canceled any remaining orders including the Police car version of the Charger. That got the ball rolling for J, Lloyd to make a new deal to get whatever Plastic kits RPM/Testors owned and or had the rights too. That was well over ten years ago around 2007, at the time my only interest was seeing the Charger Police Car kits completed. Beyond that I can't tell you what that deal included because I never asked. Ernie Petit later told me that deal included those old Johan tools that were in the HSO boxes. Ernie was once an Executive at Testors before he went to work for J. Lloyd so he must of known what they had. Did RPM/Testors buy or lease the tooling from Seville before they went under ? I don't know as Ernie never gave me the details. I know Okey Spalding didn't get them. Did they really get moved to China ? I don't know but that's what Ernie claimed, considering he was well into his Seventies when we had these discussions. Maybe his memory wasn't as good as he thought. -Steve
  5. the testor's johan reissues

    Ernie Petit told me on several occasions that he was sure he got those Johan tools from Seville and moved them to a Chinese Vendor when he was with RPM/Testors. Later when he was with Lindberg he said acquired the rights to all of the Testors Plastic kits with the intention of running those old Johan tools again. After that point he says he couldn't locate the tooling. He tried find them again when we worked together on the stillborn IMC project. You would think there would be some paper trail if that what happened. Personally I don't think they will ever turn up again, I'm betting they were scrapped at some point. If they did by some miracle, AMT could probably make a claim for them as they acquired all of Lindberg which includes the Testors kits. -Steve
  6. Ideas for source of wire wheel covers

    The AMT 1966 Olds 442 Convertible kit has a nice set of wire style wheel covers in it. You'll have to find some different center caps as comes with the spinner style. -Steve
  7. I'll bet it ends up being offered in resin with or with out the modern changes, (maybe both) within a few weeks of the Service Truck kit being released. Note the 65 Comet AFX hood was available in resin, which was a direct copy of the kit part. It was out well before the AFX version even hit the streets.
  8. It's more likely that there will be A LWB 67-72 version with the Service Bed included first, same with Flareside bed. That was the plan before the Pegasus buy out, but anything is possible. -Steve
  9. They have been for some time. There was a small punch list of stuff to finish for fitment, final details etc. Don't know if that was ever done. They also had to decide on which driver to use for the decals which might require some form of royalty payment. I'm betting on the Golden Commandos version but hold me to it.
  10. Anything that's been tooled up already we should probably see eventually. There's at least 5 variations of the 65-66 F100 do-able right now. The new beds also give at least 2 more versions of the 67-72 style trucks. Don't forget the B/FX Comet and A/FX Plymouth that has yet to see the light of day. IF my math is correct that's nine issues Pegasus can green light with out any significant investment. It all comes down to a new owner deciding on what to spend his money on. If he's smart enough, he'll figure out that if want to keep Moebius alive for a long run he'll invest in the new tooling and licensing needed to bring out popular new subjects. -Steve
  11. For what's its worth, it didn't take many angry emails to get Pegasus to OK revising the Box Art for Moebius 70 F-100 4x4. If you really want them to do the Chevy II kits I'd start making some noise about it …. Steve
  12. I wouldn't go that far yet, for now it's on a back burner. If Pegasus want's to keep it's single biggest distributor of Moebius kits happy it's going to have to do some more car kits eventually. Now if that ends up being the Chevy II or something else will see. Steve
  13. Moebius Dyno Don Maverick

    Good point Mark, the Vega would have to be a dedicated Pro Stock kit. You could probably get 3 versions by doing the early and later noses of the Vega's and by doing a Chevy Monza too. That's the only way to make it cost effective. I seem to recall somebody ran a Pro Stock Pontiac Astre too, I'm not sure you could sell enough to pay for the changes.
  14. Moebius Dyno Don Maverick

    I have no doubt there would be support for a new tool Grumpy's Toy Vega or Dyno Don Maverick. The real question is how many of us would support the Factory Stock Maverick's and Vega's that would have to be tooled and sold before the Drag version. That's the nature of the Model Car business today. Steve
  15. Moebius Dyno Don Maverick

    The only Dyno Don kit coming for 2019 would the Moebius 65 Comet A/FX. A 70 Maverick and or Comet would be a great idea though. If only Pegasus Hobbies would see it that way …. -Steve
