    well there you go...seems like an odd choice vs the cheaper Ford. Must have gotten a great deal!
  2. mike 51 added a post in a topic 65 Chevelle, (not a 64) another one done.   

    I was hoping to see a 64.....the only 64 Chevelle hardtop was in the Craftman series right?
    There's something different about the bumpers on this one...are they from a different kit?

    The AMT 49 merc is very nice and would work just fine (I don't know if they really were used as police cars tho)
    I think MPC made a snapper 49 merc that came as a police car in at least one issue....I've never seen one in person tho.

    "Sorry for my attitude".....yet again?

    The AMT 49 coupe came out about 50 years ago and has been re-issued many times..and is currently available. 
    The revell coupe is heavily chopped (the roof) and can't be built stock and thier woody is stock except for the engine. Both are readily avaliable too.
    (Tower Hobbies has all 3  currently with free shipping too btw)
    And ALL 3 are very nice kits.

    It DID  seem like a joke...there was only disbelief expressed.  No attitude or sarcasm,try to calm yourelf.

    and ALL 49 Mercs had (V) eights too.

    I bought 2 at the hobby shop on East Cypress last week....is that who you asked?

    The Modelhaus makes a 59 chevy sedan delivery..that uses Revellogram 59 Chevy for parts..not really a "kit" tho.
    The only 60 sedan delivery I know of is the old "custom" from Monogram and it is the only "kit" of a 59-60.

    The shock towers/headlight stands are molded with the shocks in place..Tim did an excellent job of masking them......the headlights sit on the pins on top.

    LOL...
    these are aftermarket parts...none of them are "stock".

    It appears that's about the only thing "wrong" with this kit...
    while I would have liked a more traditional hot rod overall (flathead with an early V8 drivetrain), I'm very pleased with mine overall.

    The original AMT kit was much simpler...you didn't need to know anything about cars to assemble one.
      It often pays to mock up some kits to avoid many of the "surprises" you keep experiencing....
  14. mike 51 added a post in a topic First detailed look - Revell's '29 Model A Hot Rod Roadster ...   

    I'm curious why revell decided to use a 30-31 style firewall in the 29.....that bothers me far more than the port spacing on the engine.
    Anyone know what kits had the stamped valve covers for this engine?
