    Try contacting Tim Boyd. He did several cross country moves and yhas a good idea of how to do it.
  4. bobthehobbyguy added a post in a topic Just an idea for reissues   

    I don't see that updating the kits is really makes sense financially. Also if you upgrade the chassis are you also going to update the engine. Then what about the inteior.
     
    How many more units will they really sell to justify the tooling cost.
    Round 2 for the most part spending their new tooling buget on sci fi. They will sell a lot more star wars and star trek kits in the long run.
    Me I'm happy to get some of the older kits reissed. Its really nice when they  add back all the original parts that haven't been issued for years.

    Cool project. Agree it should be in on the work bench as its a hot rod. Regardless I will be following. 
    The strange thing is why station wagons are left alone as by the logic used for moving this applies to them also.

    One thing that might helpbyou would be to find a makerspace or hackerspace which are placesvthat you can go and have access to a variety of tools for projects. Many have 3d printers. Also they have classes so you can learn how to use the equiptment. This would allow you to get up to speed and get an idea of what software and 3d printer to get.
