    Our local Meijer store seems to be eliminating them again too.Moving and downsizing what little they had.

    If that chassis is from a TV buggy kit than I'm right, on the full size Kelson and Berry Buggys the seat would be where the fuel tank is, the pedal assembly would be about where the front of the seats are, and the shifter is moved to behind the hand brake.

    I'm only guessing, but being very knowledgeable of Dune Buggys my guess is the REAR of the seat needs to be moved back. The "T-Buggys" moved the controls back and the seat was in the Volkswagens back seat area. My guess is that AMT used the Manx chassis without moving the controls, and butchered the body to fit, leaving the seat to far forward.
     
    BTW, I'm a rivet counter too.

    98%, missed one model, got all the years right.

    Nostalgia nailhead, with an alternator? A local guy has an "old school" 40's Nash with a first gen Chrysler Hemi, complete with a billet serpentine belt set up.

    Monogram CJ-7 Jeep, but it's 1/24 th. The Jo-Han ones look undersized so the scale problem might not be an issue.

    I had to resurrect this one when I heard this from 1964. Yes, 1964. 
    And this one too!

    The GTX? I have a kit that I'm using to build a resin sedan, I won't need the body.

    Great build with accurate markings. Correct representation of the original subject. And another outbreak of the intolerant demanding their way.

    It's a Triumph 650,
  11. Craig Irwin added a post in a topic 1/25 Revell Ford Del Rio Ranch Wagon 2'n'1   

    Jimmy Flinstone already has a Ranchero body, bit it has the wrong side trim. He also has the Country Sedan and Squire, but I think they are for the chop top Ranchero kit.

    The "Bantam Blast" was re issued only a few years back.
  13. Craig Irwin added a post in a topic Model Kits Containing Records (you remember those...)   

    I still have my Shelby record from the 68 GT 500 kit, and enjoyed playing it at 45 rpm's to make the cars sound faster when I was a kid. It still plays well after the abuse.

    I give you the Road Dog.
