    Very nicely done! I have one of these MPC Cyclones kit bashed also with the Revell Torino. It has stalled because I just could not decide on a color. The green with the vinyl top is really cool.

    I got one today and the body was wedged in the box and warped also.

    I like what I see here!
     
  4. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic Questions about AMT 67 Barracuda and MPC 68 & 69 Barracuda's   

    I don't know the full story of the tooling, but the kits are from the same tooling. It would be difficult to backdate the 69 to a 67. The 69 has a peak on the hood that matches up the front grill mounting panel. The grills are different shapes and the rear tail light panel is completely different. Modelhaus offers the chrome and tail lights but not the rest. I know Modelhaus offers a conv 67 body.
    If you are looking for a 67 Barracuda. I may have one for sale.
     
  5. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic Why hasn't Revell / Monogram released this as a kit ?   

    That is correct. But the kit has a separate cluster that is on the chrome tree. The 64 convertible and the stock 65 GT350 use one style. The 66 GT350 has a different gauge cluster but is in that kit. Also the race 65 GT350 kits have a race only gauge pack!

    I don't know why it has not been issued in kit form. All the parts exist. When I built mine the white stripes were hard to find. Mine are Fred Cady but one of the last 66 GT350 kits had white stripes in it.









    BTW. Only 4 original 66 GT350 convertibles made in 66. I plan to build another one in blue. Only parts the real cars had that the kits don't have is AC! All 4 converts had AC. Shelby did commission some continuation converts later on in the late 80's or early 90's. I have a list of the four original convert serial numbers, 6S2375 Green/gold side stripes, supercharged auto. 6S2376 Yellow/white side stripes, 10 spoke wheels, 4 speed. 6S237 Red/ white side stripes, 4speed, chrome wheels. 6S2378 Blue/ white side stripes, 10 spoke wheels auto?
  7. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic With Revells "Off the Shelf" success of their '57 Fords can these be far behind ?   

    I would love to see any 58 or 59 Ford. I just recently bought the Modelhaus 58 Fairlane 500 conv with all the trimmings. So with my luck that is the one that will be issued first.

    As it is I'm still working on my Modelhaus 72 Olds 442 convertible!!

    Here is a photo of my kit before I built it. Like stated above they are exact copies of the MPC annual parts.

    My LHS sold out of the Del Rio in days along with the 71 Ranger. To my surprise and theirs, they still had 2 of the 69 F100s. So I got one of them.

    Same thing happened with the Revell 70 Hemi Cuda. I got one of the first ones and it was so hot I traded mine away for a vintage kit I could not pass up. Funny part was that when the 2nd batch came out I grabbed one right away. I noticed that Revell fixed the 7 cylinder distributor that the first batch had!
  10. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic MPC 1969 Dodge Charger 500 Hood   

    The hood was lost when they tooled up the parts to make the Daytona version. All releases of the 69 Charger after that had the Daytona hood.
  11. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic ARRRRRGHHHHHHH.. Just Missed this!   

    One day we will be paying that price for that 68 El Camino kit and bragging about the deal we got! It could happen, look at what we were paying in 2010 verses the new kits today!

    On the second eBay add! You have to read the description! Apparently the last buyer thought it was a real hood!
  12. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic '70 Chevelle kit - Revell vs. AMT   

    I have only seen the street burner issue of the Baldwin Motion version. I don't think it has been issued a second time but may have had a second run of this tool with the same box.

    I know that is a modified reissue of the Monogram 70 Chevelle SS 454. I believe it was first issued in the early 80's.
  13. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic looking for resin kit....   

    Why would you hesitate? Or is a word missing in that sentence?
  14. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic 69 Firebird engine   

    I'm pretty sure I have one.
  15. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic Plymouth Superbird   

    Also a little piece of trivia. Did you know that the Superbird is the only Mopar that the 426 Hemi was available in that did not have any engine badges anywhere on the outside? Every 2nd gen 426 Hemi car had either 426 or a HEMI badge somewhere outside except the Superbird!
