    I think the Revell "429" Vette coupe was actually more common than the "427" version

    Another neat feature of the early 70s through '75 MPC are a set of "bare" rally wheels- these are also included in the "50th Anniversary" reissue version of the '75- nicer than the ones included in the 90s AMT version

    Molded in red with a big block and both hard and soft tops sounds more like a Revell '68

    The new tool AMT came with an LT-1 small block and I've only seen it in light blue/gray or tan plastic

    MPC bodies have separate fenderwells molded as part of the chassis- the later AMT Camaro has the fenderwells molded to the body

    I did some work on an MPC '79 10th Anniversary and just started adding detail to the "plain" engine compartment- it's really a good "blank canvas"- build up the firewall area, add a "flange" between the inner and outer fenders

    Also put together a 403/TH350 powertain with A/C- should dig this one back out





  6. ChrisPflug added a post in a topic 1969 GTX/Road Runner Differences?   

    The Sport Satellite was the equivalent trim-wise to the GTX and used the same interior and similar exterior trim- biggest difference would be the hood. The Satellite used the same style grille as the Road Runner but had some extra moldings and brightwork. The Satellite would have a bench seat interior with nicer trim than the base Road Runner but not the woodgrain like the Sport Satellite/GTX

    Externally you'd just need a Road Runner style grille and the non-bulged hood- I believe these items are available from Harts Parts Resin to convert an AMT GTX to a Satellite or just the hood for a Sport Satellite

    Interior wise the Road Runner parts would tend to be more accurate for a Satellite, the GTX interior correct for a Sport Satellite

    I've been meaning to pick one of these up to do a replica of my current '99 Yukon- is anyone currently making a GMC grille or do I need a "custom" pickup snap kit as well?

    Thank God

    Here's a quick picture of the front end parts included in the early 80s MPC Bronco

    From the internet:
    Second pic is an aftermarket suspension with longer coils and radius arms- stock radius arms are like the ones in the 2WD kit

    I love the Volare kits- have all the variants and multiples of the 77 "new Volare" , 77 Super Pak, and the yellow '79

    Stock version is pretty nice but the "custom" parts are a joke. Nice factory stripes through '78 (and the promo contract?)

    Wish they would have included the later "horizontal" quarter window louvers for '78 and up or made the spoilers and flares for the "Fuzz Duster" more like something usable for a Street Kit Car or Super Coupe project
  12. ChrisPflug added a post in a topic AMT Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 conversion?   

    Those parts are for the earlier late 60s- 70s style solid front axle with coil suspension and radius arms- the OP seemed to be asking about the 80-96 "Twin Traction Beam" setup

    Yeah, semi trucks are handy little buggers when you've got a small load you can move with a small diesel powerplant

  14. ChrisPflug added a post in a topic Ebay seller, WOW!   

    The auction seems to have gotten a lot of additional attention-

    Maybe that was the plan?

    Looks like FF4 Light Green Metallic originally with the brighter green being a later repaint and almost completely peeled off

    An original door sticker is the most accurate way to tell the actual build date- the label was printed and attached as the car was being completed in the factory- the scheduled build date as found on the fender tag can often be off quite a bit depending on vehicle and the VIN/ sequence number was assigned before the car was actually started to be built- the cars coming off the line wouldn't necessarily be built in the same order as the numbers assigned
