      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    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.

    Hi Raoul, Yes please if you get a chance could you take a a few side by side photos please?

    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!

    Converting a MPC 1969 Dodge Coronet to a Superbee?
    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!

    AMT Polyglas GT Parts pack tires & Tires in AMT 66 Mustang kit?
    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?

    Tires for Mad Max Interceptor?
    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!

    Tom Coolidge made them but he no longer makes them. MCW resin also sells a 50 olds fastback

    They all look great. Very nice. What colours did you use on the Hudson?
  15. mopargreg added a post in a topic Early Ford Wire Wheel Covers?   

    Thanks for your help. Also thanks for adding photo. I think I'll have a go at making some similar wheels. Obviously like you said without the site wheels on the inside. 
    Its a shame both the wheels and headlights are not available as it would give the early model builders more building options
