  1. What rear axle is in the AMT 1971 Dodge Charger kit? 8 3/4 or the Dana 60? Is it the same rear axle assembly in Dirty Donny version of that kit? Anyone know for sure? Thanks.
  2. Charlie Larkin: Hello, Read your response in reference to the situation with Modelhaus. I wholeheartedly agree with you on the 3d printing. In my opinion 3d printing is the future of the resin casting industry. The masters are already done. There just needs to be a person or company to buy all of Modelhaus's masters and do full blown production with 3d printing. That's the direction that this operation would have to take. If you are the one that decides to take on this I beleive the modeling community would highly support you. As someone mentioned in a prior response to this thread; parted out kits are going for big money now. These individuals in my opinion are taking advantage of the fact that Modelhaus is gone and there is no other way to get original parts unless you buy from these people and buy at very high prices. Well, good luck if you decide to do this. I know many modelers will be both happy and releived that someone has picked up where Modelhaus left off.
  3. Maybe someone knows of a car that has a roof that looks similar to the Montego roof.
  4. Has there ever been a resin casting of a 68 or 69 Mercury Montego?
  5. I the mid 70's Revell had a contest where the grand prize was a Cessna 152.
  6. I did it once with the Revell 70 Trans Am kit. Did not paint the body. Instead, I used the Millenium polish kit and buffed out the white body. Came out pretty good. Every now and then I look at it and think I should have painted the body.
  7. Hello, I am looking for these parts from the AMT 71 Dodge Charger R/T kit: set of wheels, wheel backs, rear 8 3/4 style axle and air cleaner. If you have anything please send PM. Thank you. George
  8. Would like to see some regular 70 Dodge Charger builds. Anybody do theirs as a 383, 318 or even 225 slant 70 Charger? Love to see pics.
  9. This MPC 1970 Dodge Charger original got no bids. Also, an MPC 68 Coronet kit received no bids as well. I gather no one bid on the charger kit maybe because you can get Revell's newly released 70 Charger R/T for a lot less? Also, the Coronet got no action as well. Makes you wonder what's going on in the model collecting hobby these days.

  10. I whole heartedly agree that the MPC 68 Coronet R/T is a very rare kit. Most unusual for that kit to hit over $1000. Been tracking prices on these for years. Most I've seen was in the $400 range. It's strange that in the last couple of years I am seeing more and more of the MPC 68 and 69 Coronet kits up for sale on ebay and other sites. Not quite flooding the market , but more than usual. Could this be a hint that in the future we may be seeing Round 2 release a 68 Coronet R/T kit and that individuals that have these kits now are dumping them to get the most money? Who knows.
  11. Been following this. Sealed , unopened MPC 1968 Dodge Coronet kit sold for over $1000. https://www.ebay.com/itm/MPC-1968-DODGE-CORONET-R-T-HT-ORIGINAL-FACTORY-SEALED-NOS-KIT-1768-CIRCA-1968/333289959195?_trksid=p2485497.m4902.l9144
  12. Hindsight is 20/20. It's interesting how good we had it when Modelhaus was in business all those years. I bought a few things from then over the years. Even got to meet them at the NNL East. I wished I would have bought more. Anyone else feel the same. Now, I see alot of people looking for parts for those old kits. Parts that used to be available from Modelhaus and now no more. Modelhaus was a great parts opportunity, but like anything else, it comes to an end. What is everyone's take on this?
  13. I enjoyed building the kit. But as stated in a previous post , there are a couple of issues with it's accuracy; which is true. I also have an original AMT 65 Coronet kit and put next to the Polar Lights Coronet you can spot the differences. All in all I enjoyed building it. The Polar Lights kit is a 2 in 1; stock or drag, with 2 sets of tires and wheels. The drag tires are the nice pie crust cheater slicks.
  14. I like the looks of the clear orange that the parts are coming out with. You could do a nice looking see through display engine showing the internal parts.
  15. Any possibility that we will see the MPC 1978 Dodge truck at Hobby Lobby in a few months?
