      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

    That’s so nice. I’ve wanted to build this car for a while. What hood scoop did you use?
  2. I would be interested in purchasing 1 if you decide to cast it.
  3. Who is going to be casting this? Yourself or Tom?
  4. Converting a MPC 1969 Dodge Coronet to a Superbee?

    Thanks for posting the photos. Im going to modify the MPC kit to make a A12 Superbee. The Monogram kit does look good but it will look huge next to my 1/25. Thanks for your help. Once I start Ill post my progress on here. Thanks again.
  5. Converting a MPC 1969 Dodge Coronet to a Superbee?

    Hi Raoul, Yes please if you get a chance could you take a a few side by side photos please? Im leaning towards doing the MPC conversion, what have I got to loose & I like a good challenge!
  6. Converting a MPC 1969 Dodge Coronet to a Superbee?

    Hi thanks for the replies. Yeah I know there is a Monogram 69 Superbee kit. As gtx6970 mentions I prefer to stay away from 1/24 where I can. That was my thought to, cutting the Monogram tail light panel down to fit the MPC kit. By any chance would someone have a Monogram 69 Superbee kit they can put beside one of the MPC Coronet kits so I can see the size difference between the 1/24 & 1/25 kits? Not sure if ill modify the MPC 1/25 kit yet or build a 1/24 Monogram kit out of the box. Although I do like a good challenge!
  7. Hi everyone, Ive got a resin kit here of a 1969 Dodge Coronet R/T, unknown who made it. Its cast from the MPC kit I believe. Ive been thinking of converting it to a A12 Superbee. Has anyone done this? Its looking to me the main differences from the outside is the A12 Superbee has the 6pack hood & a different tail light panel? Im pretty sure Ive got the hood covered. The tail light panel has me stumped? Any ideas? Has anyone else thought about converting one of these? Thanks in advance!
  8. A12 Super Bee.

    That's a beautiful build. Well done, perfect in every way? What kit did you use for this?
  9. Hi all, Im wondering if the Pad Printed F60-15 & L60-15 Polyglas GT tires in the AMT Polyglas Parts Pack like this - Are they the exact same tires which are in the AMT 1966 Mustang Hardtop reissue kit - And also the L60-15 Polyglas tires in the new AMY 1968 Plymouth Road Runner reissue kits - Or are the parts pack tires better quality? Im building a few Stock 68/69 Chargers & these newer Pad Printed Polyglas tires look to be the best? Just a bit confusing if they are all basically the same tire in these new reissue kits?
  10. Hi all, Ive got a pair of Aoshima Mad Max Road Warrior kits & am going to start building them. One as the Mad Max 1 Interceptor from the first movie, I have the resin conversion kit. The other Interceptor out of the box for the Mad Max 2 Road Warrior. I was looking at the tires & am wondering how accurate they are? They look way to modern. Here they are - I know the tires are BF Goodrich Radial TA but what is the tread Pattern like? Fireball Modelworks have some BF Goodrich Radial TA but Im wondering if they may be to late as well. Here is the tread Pattern like Fireball have - I did some research & wonder if the tread pattern should look like these vintage BFG Radial TA - Anyway is there any Mad Max experts that can help. Also where the tires can be purchased in 1/24. If I can find the correct tires Ill use them. Cheers!

    Looks great Raoul! What a difference. What color green did you use? Looks nice
  12. '50 Olds fastback

    Tom Coolidge made them but he no longer makes them. MCW resin also sells a 50 olds fastback
  13. Hi, yes excellent! I will purchase one of every Dodge cab you make. Can't wait! What sort of time frame are you thinking till release?
