    nice job...looks much better as a convertible to me.

    so the coupe will have bucket seats,more gauges,an automatic trans, and a different firewall (just indicated from the floor pan) and I wonder what little blister at the right rear is for?  It looks like the exhaust is routed differently and/ or the rear end will be different in the next version...

    Those decals (interior and exterior) sure look different on the car but...nope they don't work for me either.  
     
    The 4speed pattern decal offered for the shifter nob was kinda "funny" tho....

    Is that your 32 highboy pickup over on the HAMB Dennis?  Very nice job.

    Very nice..
    but those letters on the windshield stand for...   A=top class level largest engine/lightest weight
                                                                         G=gasoline  
                                                                         S=supercharged/blown.
    That poor Ford wouldn't have a chance

    Thanks...
    it was.kind of an odd editing job eh?

    "People loved its extraordinary soft ride and body movements which made them feel like riding some kind of animal."
    From the kit description on one of the Japanese vendors site.  Wonder what kind of animal ride they're thinking of....

    Some folks just can not tolerate opinions that differ from their own...yet they feel somehow compelled to read them anyway.
    Strikes me as kinda odd....and alarmingly common here.

    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?

    I bought 2 at the hobby shop on East Cypress last week....is that who you asked?
  12. mike 51 added a post in a topic 1959/1960 Chevy Sedan Delivery kit   

    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". 
  15. mike 51 added a post in a topic First detailed look - Revell's '29 Model A Hot Rod Roadster ...   

    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.
