    Robert Quimby (Thumper on this site), builds & sells Pro-Mod style chassis, he has a page on facebook, builds the chassis to different degrees, depending on how much you want done. Mainly builds chassis for Flashpoints resin bodies, might do some others.

    Mitch, Brett is right, that model will be The 'Goose's Duster, none of Ed's Revellution cars had the front wheel bubbles.Now here's little "nit-pickin' " Brett, we know each other so I know you will take it as it's meant.Revell made 4 models of Ed's Revellution cars, 2 in 1/16, the '71 Whipple & McCulloch Dodge Demon (Blue car) & the one you are building the '73 English Leather Revellution, & 2 in 1/25th, the '72 Blue car, with just Ed's name (as Art Whipple went to his father-in-laws shop & did the Whipple & Mr. Ed Plymouth Satellite), & the '74 Purple English Leather car (released in the "Tin" box), now heres the "nit-pickin' " I was talking about, just the 2 Blue cars were Dodge Demons, Dodge stopped production of the Demon after '72, they went back to the Dart name (I heard that religous groups didn't like the "Demon" name), so the Red & Purple English Leather cars are Dodge Dart Sports (the tail lights tell the story). Also, for anyone who gets a copy of the 1/16th Whipple & McCulloch car & wonder if it's a original or a rerelease, the slicks tell the story here, a original copy will have Firestone Drag 500 slicks, a rerelease will have GoodYear slicks.

    I agree with mike above, I have a couple of Terry's bodies, they are top notch & Terry is great to deal with, and while I don't have his 'Cuda body, his looks a lot better then the one the Realiable Resins puts out, to me anyway.

    Bill, I would say that the top pic (body up), is the '69-'70 car, going by the space frame & interior tin work, by '71 pretty much all the F/C's were running digger style frames, as you can see in the lower pic, you cannot see the rollcage at all, the square type cage from the late 60's was partly visible through the side windows.

    coming out looking good Brett, the chassis & engine look great, the red paint on the body has a real nice shine to it, did you clear it already or just a nice coat of paint?, either way, she's coming out good!
  8. Dragracer added a post in a topic 1976 Ventura ALMOST FINISHED 5/11/14   

    The paint looks killer Ron, also I think the springs turned out looking great, beautiful build!
  9. Dragracer added a post in a topic Frankenstein's Ghost, perhaps?   

    Chassis/engine is looking good Mitchell, as everyone else can't wait to see the body. And when Leah was running that 'Vette (she was also the driver for the turbo Mustang) she was driving for R2B2 Racing, along with Melonie Troxel (who was driving the 'Vette before Leah got into it). Great build, also can't wait to see your upcoming P/M build.

    Looking pretty good so far Brett, had a couple of Ed's Revellution F/C's, the Blue Dodge Demon (the one you are building I believe) & the Red Dodge Dart Sport in 1/16th scale, also had the Purple Dart in 1/25th (the Tin edition). All great builds.

    Glad to see you back at work on this baby, she's looking great Jeff, hopefully you will be able to get a "resinator" to do it up.

    Nice looking build Chris, the paint & decals came out looking good.
  13. Dragracer added a post in a topic bad bird   

    And yet another lousy build by Brett. Just kidding guy, the "Bird looks great, the paint (with the checkerboard) came out looking great, can't wait to be seeing more!
  14. Dragracer added a post in a topic 1964 Comet Promod/ Streetcar   

    Looks pretty cool Jeremiah, I got one of those bodies too. If anyone is wondering, the body is from Bandits Resin, comes with a flat hood & a rear wing, similar to the wing on the Ronnie Sox Comet P/M.
  15. Dragracer added a post in a topic Sox and Martin 1969 Road Runner ,,?   

    Looking at the last pic that gtx6970 posted, I was thinking a hemi since it has The Boss written on the front fenders, but, the wording above says "Project-Wedge" Roadrunner, which would mean a wedge head, I'd say it was a 440.
