  1. Dick Landys 68 Charger

    Yes that is they way Revell offered it. The body is 69 and you filled in the markers and used decals for the 68 markers. Also this body does not have a vinyl top! The later issue stock 68 kit has no markers on it at all.
  2. I'm really interested in your 70 Duster set but looks like it is missing a few emblems. These are on the front fenders of 70 Dusters only. I don't see the V-eight emblem or the Valiant emblem.
  3. Johan Superbird

    Yes, that is what I understand. 69 GTX was first, then 69 Roadrunner, then all new body for 70 Roadrunner and tooling updated for 70. 69 Roadrunner body survived but 69 interior lost to 70. Then tooling was modified into 70 GTX and then 70 Superbird. Then Superbird was modified into Sox and Martin drag car and lost NASCAR parts. 69 body survived and was reissued with 70 interior along with a few runs of the Sox and Martin Superbird. ,
  4. AMT 50th Anniversary Camaro

    I'll check mine as well and let you know. I have both the 50th and the pace car 50th issues.
  5. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    I know. I have the MFH Cobra Daytona 427 Super Coupe. I open in on occasion and just stare at it!
  6. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    As long as I enjoy building the kit and it's a good kit. I will quickly forget what I paid for it.
  7. My Last Modelhaus order

    My last order just shipped. It was placed on 7-3 and is one of the last ones placed. Nothing real fancy. Just bumpers for a 59 Thunderbird and 68 Torino parts for a restoration.
  8. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    Man! I love models and was born in Germany. I must hate myself right now! But seriously we must all wait and see what happens. I really want the 69 Boss 302 and many of you have others issues that this changeover will affect but we will all still be building models in the meantime.
  9. 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.
  10. 68 GTX grille

    Yes I used the AMT 68 Roadrunner kit.
  11. 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.
  12. 68 GTX grille

    Ok, put my order back in again!
  13. 68 GTX grille

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

    Very nice! Love the color and also plan to do a blue one.
  15. Plamoz is working on a resin conversion for the Hellcat and Demon for this kit.
  16. 70 Javelin Mark Donahue

    Here is a 70 Javelin Mark Donahue edition that I finished in 2016 but didn’t get to posting it. This was one of my long going projects that I started in 2010. Almost all resin. So it is not a restoration but more of a recreation. Decals are Fred Cady. Glass is from a damaged promo. Engine is mostly Johan. Wheels and tires are AMT. the rest is resin.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 70 Dodge Charger R/T

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

    That is beautiful and exactly the color combo I was planning for mine.
  21. 70 Javelin Mark Donahue

    Yes, but I want to do the street car!
  22. 70 Javelin Mark Donahue

    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!
  23. 70 Javelin Mark Donahue

    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.
  24. 70 Javelin Mark Donahue

    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.
  25. 70 Javelin Mark Donahue

    Pretty much what it is. They made 100 of these Trans Am versions as they were called. Hardest part is the special rear spoiler but I think I know how I'm going to do it.
