  1. For what it's worth Snake I painted mine in the factory color Carnival Red aka Ford Rangoon Red as it looked correct to me. I really can't think of a reason why it wasn't painted that color as Poppy Red is really Orange and noticeably different in most photos. Steve
  2. This issue does come with the Auto trans. If you want to build a 4 spd version it's an easy swap. All of the Moebius 65 Plymouth kits are designed to share the same engine block regardless of Hemi or Wedge, Manual or Auto. So kit bash away between any previous releases. Speaking of 4 spd cars, I suspect another AWB version may be coming later as the correct 4 spd floor hump was added to the tooling and I believe it's in this release as a separate extra part. Also, It's a safe bet that some enterprising resin caster is already working to give us a AWB Sedan body to drop right on this kit. Now we just need to work on Larry over at Pegasus to approve some Dodge variations of the Moebius Plymouths and we'll be all set. -Steve
  3. If you mean they're the same new wheels created for the Lawman 64 Plymouth then yes they are. Steve
  4. This will be a Model King release and yes distribution with go through them. That doesn't necessarily mean a smaller run then a straight Moebius release. There are minimum and maximum amounts of kits that can be ordered, produced and shipped at one time. Dave Burket can order a full run if he chooses or less same as any Moebius release. The distribution is the biggest difference. Production orders for any of the Moebius kit are typically based on sales predictions regardless of the how they are distributed. Steve
  5. It's shares some parts with a number of their previously released 65 Plymouth's. I would call it mostly new. It's been in the works for at least a couple of years, from beginning of their 65 Plymouth project. Steve
  6. Don't have one but I'm pretty sure it's the same basic kit as Revell Jeggs or Super Clean or Warren Johnson Olds Cutlass Pro Stock kits. Maybe the Pro Stock Firebird kits too. Steve
  7. Back when I was building up test shots for Racing Champions I received an early sample of the AMT F&F Camaro. This was shortly after I had built up a F&F Supra test shot for them, I had very high expectations as that was such a nice kit. Well you know when I opened the package what I got looked to me more like a Cartoon of a 69 Camaro then anything else. I quickly fired off an email to their Product Development Manager who I won't name here. I did my best to describe all issues with it in a professional manner to them and ended my comments with that they should expect a package back from me with a sample of what a 69 Camaro should look like. I ended up sending them a Revell 69 Camaro body out of my unbuilt kit collection. I thought once they saw had bad it looked by comparison, they would be way too embarrassed to go ahead with it as is. They sent it back acknowledging how much nicer the Revell piece was but basically said there was no budget to make the corrections to fix it. Yes, they knew it sub-standard and went ahead with it anyways. I told myself at least I tried to get them to fix it. As for that F&F test shot, I was so disappointed that never bothered to build it. I've still have it untouched packed away in a box somewhere. -Steve
  8. Here's the fresh of the presses Box Art for the upcoming Styleside short bed version. Details on the release date are still pending but it will be released through Model King. I expect there will be at least two more versions to look forward to after this one, a long bed and a 4x4 based on the test shot parts already shown. -Steve
  9. Moebius is not leaving the Automotive Model Kit market and any rumors regarding that are false. My workbench is plenty busy and there is much to look forward to coming from Moebius. I would expect some announcements this fall all goes to plan. -Steve
  10. Hi Len, Missing Link resin offers those Hub Caps already plated and Fireball Modelworks offers them unplated with separate 14" steel wheels under FMR-143 Steve
  11. There's very good news pending on the AFX Plymouth's but I can't share the details just yet, Your going to have to hang in their a little longer. Also there's still hope on the Nova's being done at some point, in the mean time there's some great subjects that Pegasus has just OK'd yet to be announced. Stay tuned .... Steve
  12. I agree 100%, If he can get market price on the first several kits or so more power to him. I've already purchased two of Paul's kit at his starting bid price just by being patient, no muss, fuss or bidding war. I'm very pleased with both and I have no problem waiting for the prices to come down on the next one I'm interested in. Shipping was fast too. Keep up the great work Paul !! Steve
  13. I asked Ernie about that when we started development on the Lawman Plymouth. I don't recall his response exactly other than it was just typical corporate inefficient mindset of the Mid '90. Why have one shared project when you can two at twice the price.
  14. To set the record straight, the Lawman Plymouth kit project started with Lindberg at iHobby 2008 as suggested by Bill Coulter. The prototype Display model built by both Bill and the Late Tom Creager was shown the following year. Ernie Pettit did want to use the Super Stock Dodge kit parts but as Mark said they were designed separately so it turned out not to be practical. It was scheduled for the 4th Quarter 2010 (the sign says 2009 in error) but the project almost died with the sale of Lindberg. John G. at Round2 restarted the project when he came across the display model after the Lindberg purchase and started asking around about it. They basically had to start over and ended up tooling up over 40 new parts. Creating modified re-issues from old Tooling is no easy task, so I would cut them some slack. The fact that they are showing prototype parts means the project is pretty far along. My best guess is that your looking at another nine months or so before they hit the shelves. -Steve
  15. Yes, the Flareside bed will drop right in on any of the Moebius 69-72 Shortbed pickups as they share the same frame.
