    Very nice machine work. Absolutely killer.

    That's a neighborhood I want to live in.

    The Autoart slot car does seem like a great starting point. I just don't think of slots as a good alternative source for building blocks.

    OK......most model car kits come either in injected plastic. These are the more common kits from brands like Revell, Monogram and Tamiya. Resin is more of a low volume kit made from a mold that has a liquid, resin poured into it. Resin typically has less detail but is more expensive due to the labor and low production run.
    Die Cast is molded in metal and sold at a variety of stores. These are pre assembled models that can be nothing more than a pretty toy that may be equally at home on a book shelf to works of art. Of course, typically as quality goes up so does price. There are some $200 die cast that truly look like the real car but only smaller with little if any compromise due to the size of the model.

    A readily available BV is not available in plastic or resin. Your best bet is to look for a quality die cast.

    Paris Brothers ran a similar car the last year of top gas....A great idea except NHRA's decision to drop the class.

    I've done a bit of machining and can only say......
    I bow before you all talented one!
    I look forward to the next segment.

    I've got a different version of the car.....its this one: http://www.terapeak.com/worth/1971-hemi-cuda-model-car-kit-unassembled-1-24-scale-skill-two-69-pieces-monogram/370716562982/
     
    I'd trade straight up for the Porsche.

    The scrapbook cutter is rather intriguing. One kind of file are you sending it? Also, what kind of cutter? Do you think it would cut thin .08 aluminum?
     
    Thanks,

    Look for the Slixx Sox and Martin sets. Better quality, much easier to get unless you're trying to create a mint kit to sell or trade.

    Wanted 1/16 Charger 500 conversion
    I'm looking for a resin conversion for the Dukes of Hazard Charger to make it a Charger Daytona. Any leads or offers of conversion kits for sale would be appreciated.

  15. iBorg added a post in a topic Which kit is better?   

    I know both kits fairly well.......REVELL by a ton. In almost every way, the Revell Camaro far exceeds the AMT kit. The AMT kit has its origins in the early 70's if not modified from an annual. The Revell is a mid 90's mold. 
     
    You won't be disappointed with the Revell.
