  1. Thankyou for everyone’s reply’s & your amazing help. I must admit I’m not overly confident but I’ll give it a go. Yes MrObsessive I was thinking the AMT may be larger than the johan. I will measure it up. I do have some other Mopar Modelhaus kits but that is an absolute sin to cut up a Modelhaus for its roof. I also have the Johan 60 Desoto kit but would prefer to not cut the roof off that either. I guess what I’m saying is the AMT Chrysler kits would be the cheapest alternative. Wow Steven, Your 59 Convertible looks amazing. Is that bare plastic or has it been under coated? Can’t even see where the rear door was. I can only hope mine turns out as good as that.
  2. Hi everyone, Im wanting to build a 1959 Desoto 2 Door Hardtop. I have a X-EL/Johan 1959 Desoto 4 door as my starting point & a AMT 1957 Chrysler 300 2 door hardtop kit. I'm thinking of cutting the roof off the 4 door Desoto & grafting in the roof off the 57 Chrysler. Question, Where should I make the cuts? Obviously cutting the roof off each at the bottom of where the roof pillars come off the body you will loose some material off the roof. Will it start to look like it has a slight chopped top? Any help on where to cut would be great. Second question, Ill need to rescribe the doors from 4 to 2 door & fill in the old door lines. Can this be done without ruining the side trim? Or is it easier to sand off all the trim & re-make it from thin styrene? Any help would be great. Ive built a lot in the past but never cutup bodies to much. Ive also modified side trims but I usually sand off & start from scratch. Thanks for your help!
  3. Does anyone know where these decals might be still for sale? Seems sold out everywhere. They look great! Not sure about the 4 chicken heads though! 🤣
  4. Wow, Incredible work. This is going to look amazing when you have finished. I would be interested in purchasing a resin kit of the Willys cab if you are selling any.
  5. Looks fantastic, awesome work! Wondering what sort of putty you used around the wheel openings & to flare them out? Did you use thin styrene strips on the inside of the wheel openings to hold the putty & so it’s smooth on the inside? Any help would be great!
  6. I’ve never heard of the guy but I’ll look out for his show. My favourite car shows ever is Roadkill & Roadkill Garage. Best shows & the whole family enjoys them.
  7. Wanted - 1969 Dodge Superbee Six Pack Scoop decals As above I need the 2 x Six Pack scoop decals from the Monogram 1969 Dodge Superbee kit. I don’t need anything else from the sheet or kit. Let me know if you have these you can part with & how much? Alternatively are these available on any aftermarket decal sheets? They were not on the Keith Marks decals that I received. Also looked at Firebird decals, Rays kits decals & Pattos. Thanks & hope someone can help. Cheers Greg
  8. It would be great to see a 60s Dodge Pickup be available in kit form. I would certainly buy them all that are released. Hopefully one day.
  9. I would love to build this car. Shame there’s no bodies available for it.
