After hearing the news last week, I bought another kit. Now I have three. Actually, I probably would have bought more of them anyway, even without the rumor. One can't have too many coupes! Maybe I should get a fourth kit...
I picked up this '61 Revell 1/4 scale slant six. Unbuilt, still sealed in the plastic bags. All of the metal screws, springs etc are still in the paper envelopes. The built engine belongs to my father.
Progress has been glacially slow, but I'm still working on them. The highboy now has a 2 speed rear from the '41 woodie and a lowered front end with brakes from the Blue Bandito. I thinned out the inside of the resin body and the new Revell kit's stripped interior almost fits, just needs a little more tweaking.
I quickly test fitted the new interior panels in the resin body, which is based on the old Monogram body and it looks like it should fit ok with a little trimming here and there. The new kit is 1/25th and the old one is 1/24th, but a side by side comparison shows that they're very close to the same size.
