  2. 69 Mustang

    Thanks for the reply about the louvers. I think they give the `'69 thru '70 era Mustangs that bad to the bone vibe. :-) I'll be looking forward to futher progress on this project..keep up the great work!
  3. 69 Mustang

    Nice start. What kit did you build this from. Where the rear window louvers supplied with the kit.
  4. 70 AAR Cuda-Revell

    Amen...the newly tooled 1/25 scale 70 Cuda is certainly a far cry more accurate than Revell/Monogram earlier 1/24 scale Cuda & AAR Cuda attempts. Hence, is my reason I am championing a 1/25 scale 70 AAR Cuda. :-)
  5. 70 AAR Cuda-Revell

    Hi Mark, as always its good to hear from you. Gentleman I looked back at the kit review section & as I suspected the newly tooled 1/25 Revell 2-n1 Cuda was released around October 2012. That’s close to 5 years to the moth. And, the Sox & Martin Hemi Cuda drag car followed two years later around January 2014. That’s three months shy of three years ago. I do understand Revell not wanting to crowd the market with a third one, but hasn’t there been ample time for sales to slow down for the first two versions. And, with all due respect to you & Tim in the eloquently words of someone from another forum “We muscle car modelers ain't got that much more build time left in our hourglass of life.” Lol

    1972 Cornet I like the two engine kit concept. Not ever kit needs to have the biggest mother in the valley engine option. In fact in the real world the small block was the most common displacement on the street. Very rarely, if ever,would you see a 426 hemi car cruising the streets or McDonald's lot on a Saturday night. Now 340, 383, 440 were a different story; they were the most common Mopars blocks on everyday USA streets. In fact Revell did two engine build options with the 2-N-1 '70 Dodge Dayton kit. So, the concept isn't that foreign for Revell by any stretch. What would it take to bring that concept back? Not even a full day on the job & were ready to promote you to the next level...wow!!!

    To the current director of marketing for Revell/Monogram all we have to say is "YOUR FIRED!!!!!!" 1972 Coronet we are all looking forward to you joining the Revell family and starting your new position tomorrow!!! A admiring and grateful crowd went wild...Hurray!!!! :-)

    Is there anyone that has connections with Revell on the forum who could shed some insight on this topic?

    Oh so JC is the reason for Revell not releasing a 1/25 AAR kit...come on JC "Get 'er done"!!! LOL

    True Revell did release a 70 AAR kit twice. However, BOTH versions were 1/24 scale and wickedly awful representations of the 1:1 car. The newly tooled Revell Cuda is 1/25 scale for openers. 1/25 scale is the primary scale for U.S. car models. Overseas is a different story. The 70 Cuda is primarily aimed at the American muscle car model building market. Additionally, both 1/24 scale versions of the AAR Cuda what horrible and quite candidly sucked big time. In spite of the nitpicking many have done about the newly tooled 1/25 Cuda it is a far sight better than its 1/24 scale brother. Hence, since Revell has a good newly tooled 1/25 version of the Cuda it makes sense to finally follow up with a respectable AAR version. If nothing else it's a great opportunity for Revell to make up for the two horrible attempts they made in the earlier years.
  11. 70 AAR Cuda-Revell

    I have wearied of waiting for Revell to release a 1/25 scale 70 AAR Cuda. Initially, the scuttlebutt was Revell was going to do the Sox & Martin pro stock drag car & after that, the AAR was the next spin off from their original Cuda kit. After 2 years I still have not heard anything about the release of a 70 Cuda AAR. Is this a dead pipe dream? I'm I the only person interested in the release of a 1/25 scale 70 AAR Cuda? Can anyone shed some light on this topic?
  12. The Javelin & Other AMC Muscle Cars

    I know someone that has a Flintstone '70 Javelin that they picked up several years ago. The one they have is cast in a very..very thick, very..very dense, very..very heavy resin. I'm not bashing the Flintstone piece but stating the quality of the body I saw. It certainly was not a crisp clean thin casting that you would get from other resin casters i.e. Missing Link/Modelhause etc or manufactures like Möbius, Revell but; I guess it's better than having nothing. Again I'm not bashing anyone or their products....I'm just saying😁
  13. While I would prefer to see a stock '70 Javelin SST with a Mark Donahue build option I could can certainly see myself being agreeable to your suggestion. The first release would be a straight factory stock kit with some drag accessories for us stock/drag builders and a second kit that is a full tilt Trans-Am car with roll cage etc for the hardcore road racing crowd. 😎 Between the two kit variants the build options (stock/strip/road race) would be endless!

    Sweet Jesus...that`s a VERY good looking early-seventies Javelin!
  15. The Javelin & Other AMC Muscle Cars

    Ohhh...how could I ever forget the vacuum wipers. The lower the r.p.m. the slower they operated...which was not a good thing in a heavy downpour. If I cold get my hands on another Javelin now I would have to change that wiper motor over to an electrical one!!! My sister`s brother-In-law owned a `68 AMX after he got read of his 67 GTO; he was the one who turned me on to AMC cars. He was such an advote AMC enthusiust that the guys on the street nickednamed him "Captain America!" Lol
