    Superglue a filler piece and resand it.

    The biggest problems of cutting resin is the dust is harmful, you need to wear breathing protection (although most don't) and that body is not smooth inside which means you'll have to prep it by sanding. Also, that coupe in the background looks killer.

    Please check forum rules, this is for trading. Selling is not allowed.

    Flintstone body?

    Looks like an absolute LeMon. All that is lacking is significant body damage. Guess this one hasn't been ran for 24 hours.

    Even diecast seem to be a decade old or older. The last modern rail chassis were from Revell/Monogram and those date to about 2000 with their latest updates.
  7. iBorg added a post in a topic Gasser class designations   

    If I judge, and have a couple of times, the wrong designation would effect my decision. A gasser has a stock based or rectangular frame. Period. A round tube frame throws the car into an altered class. Likewise a mid 60's funny car would not car the AA/FC tag. That came about in either '70 or 71. No pre '68 car would be a pro stock. That class came about in 1970 and allowed two year old cars to compete. The gasser tags are a bit harder. NHRA changed those through out the 60's. Likewise a modified sports car was moved into gasser or altered depending on the frame in the late 60's. 
    Rivet counting? Maybe, but why spend hours to super detail an engine and have such a simple faux pas.

    The Spirit body, stock has way too much pitch to it and the wheel openings are too shallow. It could be reworked but before I did, I think I'd scratch build the shape.

    The Spirit body just seems fake compared to either of the other two. Without the rivets, its a much better piece than the previous wedges. I'd love to have the AMT wedge also. The Spirit body is pretty useless to me. 
    On a side note, what's the wheelbase difference in the Ivo vs. Garlits chassis? Hopefully this will sell well and Round 2 will resissue the Ivo streamliner.

    Another professional (?) build on EBay
    I really can't say much about this one......http://www.ebay.com/itm/1948-Anglia-Model-Pro-Built-Truck-Parts-1-24-Junkyard-Vintage-Lot-5/182448046820?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D45701%26meid%3Df08acbe88717400b8e52b0b8613cdc26%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D253063473653

    Stunning......I would swear I could fire that motor up.
  12. iBorg added a post in a topic Don Prudhomme Wedge Dragster   

    I agree with you, either the MPC or the AMT chassis would be wrong for this car. I do think changing the roll cage structure would make it passable.  To get the right wheelbase could you merge the wedge panels with the Revell chassis and body panels? The chassis would still be wrong.  Hopefully my preorder will be in next week.

    Here's Reound 2's description. http://www.collectormodel.com/amt/3470-don-prudhommes-radical-wedge-dragster-hits-the-track-from-amt/#sthash.aHr7YogI.dpbs
    Drew could you possibly be mistaken?

    This uses the Garlits kit and not the AMT Wedge reissued in December? That's bizarre.

    Yes......absolutely a 50's build idea. Nicely executed.
