      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

    Bob,
     Rubber band, excellent !  How's that for "back in the day technology ? I like it !

    Fellas,
     Judging from the box art, once the battery INSIDE the model died there was no way to replace it as the kit was molded  with the body in two pieces. I could be wrong but, once you trapped the battery inside there seems to have been no way to replace it ?

    Folks,
     Thanks for all of the info, I'll get out sometime this week and pick up some materials and go from there.

    Resin casting Questions
    Folks,
     I'm like to resin cast some small parts for my vintage slot cars, specifically wheel inserts. They're basically like the hubcaps included in model car kits. My question is what product would the members of this board recommend for this beginner's project ?
    Thank you,
    Pete L.

    Walt,
     Thanks again for all of the info, Id really be P.O'd if I'd have built the hardtop with the incorrect engine !

    Fellas,
     You never know where you'll find info, I've always wanted to build the above car. I have the kit, decals, I even have the paint, but I never knew that the car WASN'T HEMI POWERED !!!   Thanks again for your expertise Walter, now I'll have to find the correct motor...

    Tim,
     Once again, thanks for the great extensive review. I never had this kit and I'm surprised that it includes all of the details that it does, hadn't it been for your review I'd still be under the impression that the kit was nothing more than a spinoff of the Chevell  kits of the era ! 
      The separate chassis and build up interior are a pleasant surprise and will surely be appreciated by first time buyers/builders like myself !
    Thanks again,

    Walter,
     Really nice work, the cut up front seat makes it !  I remember seeing cars with the stuffing hanging out of the seat in the stick shift area at the track.

    The old Revell tires are also famous for "eating" the plastic wheels they were mounted on...
