      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Readily available notchback Mustangs kits stop at '66, although there is the VERY rare '69 or '70 Revell one (or MPC?). Either which way, I wish there WAS a kit of the '67-'68 as it would have saved me a TON of work on my Green Hornet project! Why that notchback's been overlooked is beyond me.

    Not my type of car, but I absolutely LOVE the details on this!! Excellent work, and I'll certainly be following along!

    Thinking of '50's cars, there's one with a lot of potential as several versions could definitely come from it. 1957 Oldsmobile 88/98. 
    You have the hardtop, post coupe, convertible, and if I'm not mistaken Richard Petty's car could come from this. Isn't that one of the first cars he raced back the? I thought there was a rumor of one coming from one of the major manufacturers years ago, but of course, we've not seen it. 
  4. MrObsessive added a post in a topic What do YOU like about the MoPars?   

    At one time my Dad had a 1965 Dart GT convertible with the 273 and 3 on the tree. I tell you what.......from a standing start that sucker would literally snap your head and throw you back into your seat! I had read somewhere that of all the small block V8's made in the '60's, the Mopars had the quickest 0-60 times of all for their cars. 
    I can believe it!

    Rick, a '67 would come the closest to making a '68. '66 is a whole 'nuther kettle of fish. Front and rear ends are a bit different between '67 and '68...........Modelhaus made bumpers (front and rear) for a '68. I'm not sure where you'd get those now unless you came across a total glue bomb somewhere.
    For a '69, you might want to check out a '70 kit as that's readily more available as those bodies are similar.
    Hope this helps!

    Awww, c'mon Tim! Out with it!
    Or are they watching your house??
    ANY of these cars mentioned would be great, so lets hope they're definitely getting their ducks in a row!

    Just to further expand on my conversation I had with Ed Sexton at the NNL East last year------I had mentioned that they pretty much have everything on hand to make this car. They've already done the '68 Firebird, so there's your chassis, the body was a slightly tweaked version of the Camaro, and you already have the '69, you'd just need the proper engine and interior. 
    He did say wasn't this car done before? I told him it had been by MPC, but that one is woefully inaccurate body shape wise (and other things), and there's never been a modern glue kit done of the '69 Firebird/TA.
    As I mentioned before, he nodded his head in agreement, wrote it down, and said that they'd definitely take a look at it. Time will tell if we see this on our LHS shelves.

    Jesse, I'm not a real big truck fan, but I would DEFINITELY buy that! What a nice truck!
    What year would that be? 1961-'62?
  9. MrObsessive added a post in a topic Trans-Am the pony wars....   

    Hmmm.......that's interesting!
    Well, I'd take ALL of them if only they could be made street stock as well. The racing liveries would be nice, but that sole option limits sales of those types of cars IMO, as all of them were available at your local GM/Ford/Chrysler/AMC store.
  10. MrObsessive added a post in a topic Trans-Am the pony wars....   

    There's one missing...............1969 Pontiac Trans Am! Yeah, I'd love to see this one particularly if it can be offered as a 2 in 1 kit. I made mention of this to Ed Sexton of Revell at the NNL East last year, and he wrote what I said down. We'll see if it ever happens.

    I'd LOVE to see this one done! Multiple versions for sure as it has certainly raced! No vinyl roof though...........my Mom had one of these (SST 390 auto), and I always thought Javelins looked better without it. I've got plenty of AMX's, although if I ever decided to build one, I'd make it a '68 like the one pictured above, and not the '69 like everyone else builds.

    That Riv would be nice, but if it hasn't raced (never seen one), Moebius wouldn't consider it.
    This would be more up Revell's alley as I can see this being done in a snap/lowrider version. Frankly, if the car could be done as a 2 in 1, it would wow the low-rider crowd and us lunatic fringers out here. 
  13. MrObsessive added a post in a topic 56 T-Bird Replica   

    I dunno..............from where I sit it looks mighty fantastic to me! Those old Monogram '56's still build up nicely, but yes the plastic version is not as crazy making.
    I see you're in Wilkes-Barre! I used to live right below you in Drums once upon a time------right off Rte. 309.

    The '99 Suburban pic is blurry.........but it looks like there's rear end damage. Who hit who here?

    Bill, I thought she was referring to the car in the background........that looks much like a Kia Soul seen here..........
