    Very cool. I'll be getting a set.

    I didn't realize that they are asking that much for them now. I have the tin kit and the reason I went for that one was the decals. The Dukes issue has the decals in three colors but no roadrunners on them. The Tin issue has the correct decals plus the correct dash and chassis even thought I still plan to kit bash it with a 71 Charger like I did with my last one. I went for the tin as it was not much more than the other issue. But if I wanted better decals Keith Marks decals were an extra $15.

    I'm sure a Revell 69 Charger 500 will come soon. I'm almost done building one!

    All the Revell 65-66 Mustangs are 1/24.
     
     



  5. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic '68 Super Bee/Coronet R/T   

    Not too difficult I thought. Here is mine. It is all Modelhaus and I used 2 grills, cut them both in half and used the right halfs to remove the R/T emblem. Sanded off the other R/T trim from the sides and rear panel. Dodge letters are photo etch meant foe a challenger hood. Strip is from Fred Cady.

    Very nice! I have restored a number of these and its nice to see another one done!

    Here is a pic of the conversion kit. I still have this but lost the rear spoiler. Note the hood is two piece vacuum formed.

    Thanks, It is funny now because I bought a few of the kits and also did a few 70 Hemi Cudas too. For what was available back then they were great. The new 70 Cuda is awesome but I have not built it yet. I also have the MPC version as well. I also have the 95 version AAR and that one didn't bother me and I built that one too.

    I really like the AAR Cuda and built this one back in 1990. This was built with a trans kit from MPB Detail and used the 71 Hemi Cuda and 70 Challenger TA.




  10. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic 1968 Shelby Green Hornet-----Update! 10/9/17   

    They look awesome and I went to the sight to get them. That cost me a lot now. I started looking around and had to get the 2013 Shelby GT500 trans kit, and the 2014 Camaro Z28! I just realized I only got one set of the 67 wheels. They are for my 67 GT500 Super Snake project but I also have the HRM 68 convertible and a few others. Now if Model Car Garage would finally get the photo etch sets for these out I will be set. They announced them just over two years ago!

    Also, that Resin kit predates the Revell kit. That Resin kit is based off the old AMT 66 Impala kit.
     
  12. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic Do You Recycle Your Old Builds?   

    I have rebuilt many of my old builds but not all of them. Some I keep because they were some of my best at the time and I was proud of them. Others that were redone were ones I finished but new I could have done better. Some I just got a fresh kit and built it again and now have two done almost the same way but show my skill advancement.
    I do buy vintage built up kits to restore and have redone many of them. It is a little bit more work but I really enjoy the final results. One that I am currently redoing is a 68 Shelby GT500KR convertible that I built with a Mini Exotics Resin kit about 15 years ago. The paint was blotchy, I used silver paint instead of BMF, and the decals were Fred Cady. Stripping paint off Resin is a gamble and if I destroyed it I could not get another one. That changed when HRM released his Resin kit. I tore it apart and the paint came off with no issues. I ordered Keith Marks decals and now everything is well on its way.
    It is harder to redo one of my own old builds but much easier to redo someone else's. I'm currently redoing a 67 Thunderbird AMT annual and a Johan 70 Roadrunner.
  13. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic 1970 Mercury Cyclone   

    What a beautiful build! I have one started and all roughed in and ready for primer. I have the Revell chassis and engine comp all kit bashed in and Missing links dash, front spoiler and a few other parts I needed. I just can't decide on the color combo!

    Cool my order is only 531 away! Now serving??

    69 GTX Johan kit in final primer. Time to pick a color for it.
    68 Cougar GT AMT kit in final primer. Also deciding on a color for it.
    69 Charger 500 Revell kit in B5 blue. Body is done and cleared. Hood and plain steel wheels are getting repainted now.
