    Nice one Chris
  2. raisin27 added a post in a topic BORDER BANDITS COMET   

    Thanks everyone. I actually started this one several years ago and kinda hit a dead end when my promised decal source didnt come through. I ran across these decals at the 2012 Toledo NNL show. Sorry but I dont know the manufacturer.

    I will try to get some more pics up soon.

    Thanks again

    What an interesting topic!

    Here's one that always seemed unappreciated to me. I had so much fun building this one because its such an oddball. Who ever heard of making a street machine from a 4dr Plymouth police car??

    I know this is an old post, but as an owner of a 60 Starliner and a big fan of 60 Fords in general I can tell you that the 300 horsepower 352 4 barrel "THUNDERBIRD" engine has a black block and heads with med. Ford blue valve covers and air cleaner. The special 352 c. i. 360 horsepower engine that comes in the kit had black block and heads with gold valve covers and air cleaner.

    Rare but not unheard of. My 52 Ford Customline just recently turned 25,000 miles this summer and I have all the service records for it since it was new.

    When all is said and done all I can say is that I am proud to drive an American car, from an American manufacturer, assembled by American workers.

    Although I wont be able to attend I would recomend this show to anyone that can. I went a couple years ago and think that this is probably the best run show that I have ever attended.

    Thanks, for the tires i cut a flat spot off the bottom with an xacto knife, heated the area till it was close to dripping rubber, then pushed it into a flat surface which causes the bottom to bulge out slightly.

    This is what I built for the Revell contest. Been really pressed for time of late so I was only able to do a box stock build...........Oh well, maybe next year I can come up with something better.

    Nice job, I agree its a great kit. As for the hood ornament, there is a slot to open from the underside that it locates into.

    My worst since I started building as an adult was also one of the most fun. Our club used to do an anual 8 hour build. From unopened box to finished model in 8 hours. Its amazing some of the shortcuts you can come up with if you need too!
