  1. 66 El Camino - MADE IN BRAZIL

    I really like this! Nice job!
  2. AMC Hornet AMX

    Check the MPC Pacer kit for decent AMC bucket seats. The one on the right is a Pacer bucket. The one to the left is one I modified for the 1980 AMX I built.
  3. Chevy Monza Street Machine Progress 04/02 Dash, more...

    Your wheels, tires and stance really make this model! Looking great so far!
  4. Are Some Models Just Cursed?

    I think that snap Chevelle kit also has a beautiful interior! The separate side panels are so easy to detail.
  5. I miss the good old days when they actually printed the name of the part in addition to it's number on the instruction sheet!
  6. 1936 ford

    What a sweet machine! Nice color!
  7. The Javelin & Other AMC Muscle Cars

    Thanks for the "heads up" on this Snake! I'll have to check the magazine racks.
  8. The Javelin & Other AMC Muscle Cars

    I'll see what I can do for you Brandon. I don't think that issue is available from the Model Cars back issue department.
  9. The Javelin & Other AMC Muscle Cars

    Thanks Bill! Your are correct Bill regarding the trunion front suspension on the AMX/Javelin. I mistyped 67-68 instead of 68-69. Thanks for the clarification!
  10. The Javelin & Other AMC Muscle Cars

    I would love any new tool AMC but I think the Javelin would be the best choice as there are more ways to go with it over the AMX or any other AMC model. As Dave Van mentioned, to maximize the tooling you could get the 68-70 out of one tool by doing the different front grills, taillights and bumpers, and also incorporate separate door panels and seats on the interior to do the different styles from all 3 years. Include a detailed chassis and you would be able to use that for 68 through 74 (though there might be some issues having to tool the 67-68 trunion front suspension AND the 70 - 74 "coil over A arm" design). Shorten that chassis up and stick it up underneath those Johan AMX's and Hornet promos. Bring out stock, Mark Donohue and Trans Am versions to get even more mileage out of the tool. And back in the July 2002 issue of Model Cars, I had an article published on how to convert a Hornet promo to an SC/360. This is even easier now with the Missing Link resin. Note that the picture below is my converted promo and not the Missing Link resin kit.
  11. "That particular style was "in" for about twenty minutes in the mid-Eighties." LOL! I literally laughed out loud on that one Mark!
  12. '50 Olds Custom...

    Gorgeous as always Steve! Wonderful job on this!
  13. 69 and 70 Javelin Question

    The 70 Javelin had a totally different dash than the 68/69 (though same as the 70 AMX). Also, the 70 had high back bucket seats, whereas the 69 had seats with separate headrests. Each year had its own unique door panel, but they were shared same year between the AMX and Javelin. Hope this helps.
  14. 1972 AMC Gremlin

    The AMT Pacer kit has a nice AMC six cylinder engine.
  15. 1972 AMC Gremlin

    Please tell me that they are NOT going to cast the stock AMT Gremlin seats! Those things are hideously too narrow. Unfortunately, I don't know of a better seat short of cutting a set out of a Johan AMX interior. Or taking 3(?) of the stock Gremlin seats and making one good seat.
