    Nice chop and stance...
    not much of a billet fan but the brightest red paint you can find would work too..even without "graphics".

    Braggarts and whiners....

    unfortunately open stamped louvers are just too small  to be reproduced in 1/25-24 scale it seems.....without the raised portion they just look like slots or vents to me.

    Nice work but niether looks "right" to me as traditional louvers....the ones on the Chevy are far too big and the layout on the Olds just looks odd.

    "For a seven thounsand pound tanker it really had some guts"   ???
    Why did it weight more than 2,000 pounds than  all the other full sized Ford wagons?.

    Over paint as a clear coat?  
    I'm not sure but I think someone was pulling your leg.

    So when staff leaves Revell do they take the molds with them or does Revell just throw them away?  
  11. mike 51 added a post in a topic 25 model T roadster   

    I think those tires are from the AMT Indy cars of the early 60's...the Watson Roadster and the Lotus...I too wish they would be reproduced!

    Your pics look fine tome..(I prefer them to Harry's sizing)
     The model is outstanding!

    Hasn't this already been discussed here?
     is that what you missed?

    "...if you ran an electric pusher fan forward of the radiator...which kinda ruins the whole effect in my opinion"
    and looks terrible to boot.  I've never seen a sbf in a early Ford without cuttting the firewall either.  Dennis' example is exactly right about an easy swap using a sbc and matches my experience exactly.  
    Sorry Tim
