    looks great!
  2. mike 51 added a post in a topic AMT PRESTIGE SERIES   

    No.

    Very nice paint...
    That sure would be hard to steer with those L60s up front tho

    Notice the linkage for a floor shifter....

    That terrible front suspention that AMT put in this kit really hurts the appearance...black paint on it and a front bumper would help hide that design shortcoming.

    yep..looks great otherwise.
  7. mike 51 added a post in a topic REVELL 4336 FORD T STREET ROD   

    It's  a much modified re-issue of the 50+ year old Little T....it's dated in many ways but it's still a very nice kit.
    A very recent history lesson for you..http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/104039-little-tee-packed-with-all-the-parts/
     
  8. mike 51 added a post in a topic Next up from Moebius ?   

    Well yes Art...with those exceptions of course.  
     I was thinking of the later models  when I wrote that..but I was still wrong-ish.

    which version would you be willing to accept as inaccurate?  (even if Moebius didn't care)
    most hardtop bodies (if not all) were different than convertibles..different shapes to the top, backwindows and top well...many had extra crossmembers on the frame.
    i'm guessing most modelers would have little interest in cutting off the roof as well.
  10. mike 51 added a post in a topic Anyone making grilles for the Moebius Fords?   

    yes..hopefully.  
    Moebius' apparent success with their "good enough" approach is unlikely to bother fixing their obvious errors...
  11. mike 51 added a post in a topic Buick style brake drums   

    Yep, it's still backwards...
  12. mike 51 added a post in a topic Monogam Untouchables   

    Very nice Dennis...thanks for the tip on covering up that unsightly gap.

    "A ghoul is a monster or evil spirit in Arabian mythology, associated with graveyards and consuming human flesh."
    Why would they be interested in model cars?

    Try turning the brake "drum" over.  Your pic of the real thing shows what I mean..the "small end" goes inside the wheel. Maybe file the flange to match the fins on the backing plate side of the drums like in the pic?  
     Not a big deal, just my impression.
