    Update .. for this kit , Kevin now has the correct NON-Black tires for the Purist like me . Black Tires were not invented nor available until 1914 from the research I've done . Thanx ..

    I only have the fortune of owning one of his products . I would buy more , cash flow prevents this from happening . I am happy with my one and only ;

    Needs some TLC to gett to this stage .. The body process is Slush Cast . I just painted the windows black . Thanx ..

    I did a comparison of them JoHan '62 Lark i built into a Pace Car Replica . The Dash layout , upohlestry pattern , and Dash Pad are not the same as Dave's Lark Guts . MY does indeed mean M(odel) Y(ear) .. Thanx ..

    This is the '60 MCW Lark HT . I modified it to represent a '61 MY . It took some hard digging to find this color combination . It is a Tribute Build of the 1:1 I worked on way back in time . Modelhaus has the parts to do the MY Change . It does come as a '60 MY Lark . Very little work was needed to finish this replica . Not difficult resins to work with .. Thanx ..

    A MCW & R&MoM resin engins are readily available making these the best choice IMHO . Change Air Cleaner / Silencer , add the Heat Stove and air pump for proper emissions for the '70 MY . A Picture fopr referwence would be helpful . Thanx ..

    As a Point of interest and detail . These units you refer to as "add on units" are just that . You only have the capability to re-cycle Air from the interior . This is the same as the MAX Air Setting . Before the advent of "the Universal all you Illiterate Dummies can understand this nomenclature . Example : The picture of a running shower head meaning this is the Headlight Control Switch . Ambient Outside Air is drawn through the Plenum Chamber as is Heater Air . Modern HVAC uses the same methods / chamber for all functions . The Packard Trunk Mounted Units in 1950's , among the other Fine Cars Trunk Units , drew Fresh Air from the trunk itself . Otherwise an add on Vent in the Quarter Panels unique to A/C Equipped Cars . Thanx ..

    While under the list of missed opportunities : I just missed the '50 Buick 4 dr. Sedan offered in the Early days of resin . After long term saving I had the money and sent the caster the MO . BTW it arrived the week after he quit casting this one .Thanx ..

    I thank you for this effort you are putting forth . Deciding to share this with Bob Black is not a Bad Idea . In fact you might desire to take this Service over from your comments . PM me for contact information for Bob . Thanx .. ,

    I'll also add to the kudos on this Casting . Excellent . I am so underwhelmed when I compare this to an Early Resin Kit . I am glad to experience both . "they just don't make 'em like they usta !" I prefer in the day now stuff thanx ..

    Excellent rescue . I am partial to Factory Stock and Tribute Builds . I can relate to using Oil paint by Number to build a Model .
    My first kit i bought with my own Money was a Premier '60 Falcon . Paint , the same Earl Schieb as you also admit to . lol .. Thanx ..
