    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....

    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?

    Tim...since you seem to have an AMT 29 handy,would you mind checking  if the AMT hood matchs the Revell body?  How well?  
    Thanks Mike...

    No.  There are two frames (with various specific parts for the 2 versions) but only enough parts for one "roller".

    I would've preferred more engine/driveline parts options vs. the low-boy parts.  I don't care for the decals.  I plan to build mine as a mid-fifties AV8 using parts from Revell's 40 Ford kits and the other  one in a more modern style.
    BUT... I think it's a great kit overall...the "extra" parts are kinda interesting too.  Thanks Tim and Revell.
  10. mike 51 added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    I got 2 Revell 29 Ford roadsters....they look great at a glance!

    From the "Orient" eh?   Is that near China?  
  12. mike 51 added a post in a topic It's out!   

    Got mine too...they.look great at a glance!  
    But it sure has some "odd" decals.....

    It would look MUCH better if the rear bumper was in the right place.....the gravel shield goes behind the bumper not above it.

    He said  it was missing the quarter trim pieces when he got it. that's why there are empty "slots" on the quarters.
     Nope,the small skirts are from the kit.  
    yep it's a 53 Ford.
