  2. Paul , this is stunning like the 1:1 . I drove a 1:1 for 14 Years (78MY) . I bought one in Steel , now I will in Resin Are the Polycast Wheels part of the planned product ? I am remembering the Anti-Sieze I placed on the Hubs to prevent the Wheels from freezing to the Car .. Yes I went those wheels on my replica please Thanx
  3. Mercer vs Stutz . You must be Nuts to own a Stutz ! Nothing could be worser than to own a Mercer ! I want a Mercer , I have the Stutz . Same Wisconsin Beaver 4 Cyl Engine . Same Transmission . Hmmm . difficult modifications fr a Model Kit Maker . No Patent Infringement problem do I see ? Sales results is the problem .. Thanx ..
  4. Sir , I went there , no pics of the Red Ram ? Thanx ..
  5. This '79 Spyder in Firethorn is a replica of one of the Cargo Units I delivered from the Lordstown , Oh , GMAD . It was one of the few that started with the Key without the CAR HAULER EMERGENCY quicko chango Fuse swap due to a Factory Defect . MPC Kit , Auto Touch Up Airbrushed . Possibly Fred Kady Decals ? Thanx ..

I appreciate the extra Effort and patience they extended me . As well the parts . Thank you is just not enough
  7. Nice presentable Build . Green is still my favorite color . Your skills are still improving TY for sharing this . Thnx
  8. AMT '66 Nova Kit . First Model car kit exclusively for Adult builders . Read , experienced builders . It was the first kit from Scale Auto Enthusiast mag poll results . I think this Magazine was involved in the Polling also . Yet . the Rear View Mirror is molded into the windshield . Wags went insane about this detail BTW .IIRC the Rocker Panel Trim is wrong . I don't believe it was fluted as in the kit . MCW paint . Enjoy .. Thanx ..
  9. Yes , you should . Facts , this is a 1930 MY Packard . The Cadillac ad is for a 1932 MY Cadillac IIRC . Conspicuous Consumption fell out of favor by 1932 . This was the height of the depression . The Wealthy would buy a Premium Car with cheap tires to tone down the High Dollar look . Still keeping up with the Jones next door , but , restrained . Not full out flaunting it . Thus displaying and appearing to suffer also . Appearance is everything . With Money , it would not matter how soon you had to replace cheap Tires . The cost of 'retiring' your fine Motorcar was not an Issue . I had Family Members in the Car Business during these years . Thanx
  10. Here are my AMC Pony Cars I've built so far . The fronts are the same on the '71/'74 Javelin AMX Cars . The '73/'74 Has the Hurst Optional Wheels . I don't like them and plan to change them put . The '68 AMX is sporting absolutely wrong Aftermarket Wheels . Since I found out the Visually determinable difference between '69 vs '69 . The Black Out changed to Wood Grain Trim . This Interior change I plan too swap the wheels for the AMC Turbine Road Wheels . Thanx ..
  11. Snake , IIRC Marc Nellis offers the Javelin / AMX , '68/'69 MY's .. Thanx
  12. IMHO , Black-walls would make an Eyesore out of the Replica Car . It was a premium Priced Car with Premium Tires in the day . This is not a 120 Model . Thank you for chosing these and not Eyesores . I am impressed with this build Thanx ..
