    Maybe the resin caster can check if in fact the Lindberg Crown Vic chassis will work.
    I would want to know that for sure.

    The 92-97 Corwn Vic chassis is identical to the 79-91 Crown Vic chassis. Using the Lindberg 92-97 kit will work.
    Not sure if the 98-current Crown Vic chassis is the same. Anyone here know?
    If you go on the website Crownvic.net. That message board has members that know these cars well.

    I would be interested in the 90-91 Crown Vic. Will it have the correct 90-91 interior and dash guages?
    Would want to see a casting/test shot first.
    There was a resin company a few years ago that cast a 90-91 Crown Vic. The roof line was off and roof
    height was incorrect.

    Tee Vee Dune Buggy
    Was on Model Round Up's site and read the Tee Vee Dune Buggy will be part of their model line up some time in the future.
    Has anyone built that back in the day? Anyone have pics of one finished?

    So the Buffalo, NY Hobby Lobby's have them?
    So, if that's the case; hopefully they will soon show up at the Hobby Lobby down here.

    Any Donnie Allison Cyclones at your local Hobby Lobby yet?
    Down here in South Florida, I have not seen any at Hobby Lobby yet. The kit has been out for almost 3 months.
    Anyone find any Cyclones at their local Hobby Lobby?
    All I see at Hobby Lobby are the Pepsi Chevelles.

    Since Hobby Lobby has the Nascar Laguna, hopefully we'll see the Cyclone there as well.
  11. GMP440 added a post in a topic what's the one kit u would love to see reissued?   

    Would love to see a reissue of the MPC 68 Coronet R/T. We almost got one a few years ago.
  12. GMP440 added a post in a topic Is there ever gonna be another 1970 Charger released?   

    I beleive we will see the 70 Charger R/T come out. That would be a big seller. I hope we will also see the 68 Coronet R/T come out too.
    I don't know if Round 2 or Moebius realize that if these two get produced, the kit sales would be tremendous for both,

    Resin casting steering wheel question.
    Wanted to ask the resin casters how you are resin casting steering wheels. I have been resin casting small parts.
    The castings come out nice. But, when I cast a steering wheel the steering wheel remains bendable after the resin has cured for a while. However, other parts that I cast ; once cured fully, are nice and hard. It's just the steering wheels that remain a little soft.
    Those that cast resin parts , how do you get a more rigid casting of a steering wheel?

    Outstanding. Body looks great. I would do another one, but instead ; try to make the more correct front grill and nose
    that was on the 79-86 Capri's.

    Is that kit still available?
