  5. AMC Hornet AMX

    Ah, a Volaire kit, of course! I was wracking my brain for a source for the flairs. That'll be the most challenging part of this project. Thanks for the tip. Is that Volaire kit still readily available? I do have it safely disassembled now and I'm making my parts list. Thanks again, David G.
  6. Revell's 1968 Volkswagen Beetle

    Here are some sunlit photos. A little improvement, but not much. Earlier I mentioned my "Outdoor Studio". Well, here it is! And last but not least- a photo of the Bug on the "Showroom Floor". Thanks,I hope it was worth the trip David G.

  8. AMC Hornet AMX

    One of my all-time favorite cars that I owned was a 1977 AMX Hornet. So of course, I've wanted to build one for some time. I recently found a suitable model from which to start. My goal is to turn this: Into this: (Not my photo) It's an old Jo-Han promo. It'll need some interior modification, so I'd like to disassemble it without breakage. I'm also considering using the body and mounting it to a suitable donor chassis, if there is one. At this point, I'm still very much in the research and planning phase- collecting parts and information. If there is anyone out there who has experience with these, I would be appreciative of any advice that you could offer. Thanks , David G.

  11. Revell's 1968 Volkswagen Beetle

    Coming from Revell of Germany, it's a Euro-spec Bug which in my mind explains the bumpers but not the headlights. If I remember my VW history correctly, the bumper over-riders were on the deluxe version which was the one shipped primarily to the States. Regarding the headlights, one of the many transitions for this car in 1968 was the change from a 6 to 12 volt electrical system which is when the sealed beam lamps came into use... I think. At least that's what I'm telling myself. Additionally, by flattened look of the hubcaps, the wheels on this one are the later era 4-lug when they should probably be the early 5-lug with the more dome-shaped hubcaps. To tell you the truth Túlio , I'm actually a bit flattered that you're paying such close attention to my work, thank you. David G.
