  1. Why AMT?????

    This kit has been issued many times over the years and many different versions and parts exist. Different hoods, dashes, wheels and bumpers plus the custom parts. Always a convertible and some versions have a Hemi like head on the 440.
  2. 68 GTX grille

    Yes I used the AMT 68 Roadrunner kit.
  3. 68 GTX grille

    Thanks Rico. Your grill looks better than the one I did years ago so I plan to swap it out. I’m not in a big hurry but really interested in this.
  4. 68 GTX grille

    Ok, put my order back in again!
  5. 68 GTX grille

    68 GTX grill looks great! I’m fine with it as is!
  6. Ford GT40 mk II Daytona '67

    Very nice! Love the color and also plan to do a blue one.
  7. Plamoz is working on a resin conversion for the Hellcat and Demon for this kit.
  8. Revell's 68 Mustang GT 2n1 kit

    Interesting that you got the older box with the updated packet in it. The 67 seat pattern is horizontal ribbs with a chrome medallion. 68 is vertical ribbs. Upper half of rear seat is 67 but lower half is 68. It stands out but kit comes with folded down option that hides seat. So not really a big deal and not to difficult to rescribe if you want to.
  9. Revell's 68 Mustang GT 2n1 kit

    I just picked up another one and yes you can. Newer issue is top box and older issue is below. The new box is also dated 2011 and has a few differences on the box. Mainly the Ford licensing is now only on one side. Lid now has the yellow box on it. The newer issue has the 68 interior but still has the 67 back seat upper 1/2. Also the decals were not fixed. The black C stripe still has the bold door section but white are still good.

    That is very nice!
  11. Revell's 68 Mustang GT 2n1 kit

    That is beautiful and exactly the color combo I was planning for mine.
  12. 70 Javelin Mark Donahue

    Yes, but I want to do the street car!

    The rest was also cast by myself from a mint 68 Javelin kit I bought. I used those parts to cast up just about all the parts to a 69 Javelin. 69 Body was from a promo as the hood is molded in. The chassis and all the under hood parts were cast from this. I had learned a lot doing this and also learned that it was a lot of work and that it was better to start with the best rebuilder you can. Plus I learned how much work goes into casting and can appreciate what resin casters do to offer parts and kits. Please don't ask for these parts as they are gone and the molds have shrunk a bit. I keep watching ebay and every now and then I get lucky and score a good rebuilder but really miss Modelhaus!

    I had no interior. So I picked up this promo and made a mold and cast the interior tub from it. Glass was cracked so that was no use to me. I also got a dash from Missing Link from the AMX kit that they offered. Shifter and steering wheel came from Modelhaus.

    This particular build is almost all resin. I have worked with resin before and have done my own casting and learned a lot. here is what I started with: This was a Decon Resin offering that I literally ran into in a local hobby shop. I did not know it was even offered. Body is stock but had no emblems, Bumpers were not plaited and the rear bumper is missing the Javelin plate. Glass was vacuum formed. I replaced both bumpers with Modelhaus chromed ones along with a 71-74 spoiler also from Modelhaus.
