      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    My first car was a B......a lot of me would love to have another. Darn simple car and seemingly indestructible unless you're young and foolish. I'll have to look out for a copy or two of this car.

    I'd love to see the test shots of the AM NASCAR kit. Curious question, if the test shots were made, how close was the real kit and where are the molds?
     
    As for 1320 kits, they did a few, basically unassembled die-casts with a bit lower detail. I still look for 1320 die-casts for my collection. Hard to find but worth it.

    What's the detail like in this kit? It seems large scale is much more hit or miss than 1/25th.

    I've often wondered if the race sponsorship caused the chain to fail or was the sponsorship a last ditch effort to attract attention to prevent Helig-Myers from failing.

    Both Don Prudhomme and Rick Hendrick want you to make them a copy.....what will you do?

    First comment I had, "I love it!"

    I'll end up with one for no other reason but to see if I can adapt the interior to the Bullhorn T. I find that interior bucket one of the kits greatest weaknesses.

    Are the wheels different from the Bullhorn T?

    Being a big time FWD Mopar fan since they were new, let me throw some insight having owned a couple when new. The L body, GLH (Goes like hot car) was a great little car. One of the best of its era. The Omni's evolved into the Shelby Charger. With the TI motor it was equal to many V-8 cars that had become bloated barges. The Daytona/Lasers were G bodies. While they may seem derived from K cars (a platform large enough to be a four or five seat passenger car, unlike the L Body which was a two plus small children car, few suspension parts were shared. The G bodies were first offered with a similar TI motor but were offered with TIIs in the 1987 model year with a very nice Gretag five speed. With just a little work (mercy those cars loved a 2.5 or 2.75 inch exhaust), those cars could haul. Several state police departments had unmarked versions for highway patrol. They were the fastest American cars sold in 1987-88. The years just prior to that the fastest American car was a big block pick up truck. The Daytonas were a very nice car, equal to a nice Trans Am or Camaro but with the ability to average 80 on the freeway at 30mph. This was in 1987! On a side note, I remember racing a Viper in my warmed over Laser (exhaust, larger injectors, large intercooler and the like) up to 100. Had a blast. At 100, the Viper driver waved and I watched his tailights. I'd love to have another Shelby Daytona or Laser XT with a five speed.

    I'm hopeful the new sheet will be better quality than the last reissue. If not, there are aftermarket sets available.

    The Revell chassis under either the MPC or Johan kit gives you a much better chassis. The problem is trying to adapt the interior.  I tried it but never got the interior where I thought it was right.

    This build disproves the old adage, "You can't make a silk purse froma sow's ear."   Very nice.

    I wonder how good the Garlits decals will be?

    Sorta like a rolling demo derby. I wonder how angry the drivers get with each other?

    Still sweet. I'm glad you couldn't get the wood grips right. Proves you're mortal......a much more skilled mortal than I'll ever be, but still, maybe, mortal.
    This is KILLER!
