    I would love to see them. I've been working on this one for a long time. It's a 67 AMT with the 65 roof section.

    Nice! I've always had a soft spot for the 67-68 coupes. My dad had one when I was little. He called it a notchback mustang.

    I'm pretty sure this Mustang kit started off as a Palmer offering back in the day.  I think the Challenger kit that Lindberg put out a while ago was one of Palmer's old molds too. Palmer's kits were more miss and miss than hit and miss, quality-wise.The Chevelle and the 53 Ford were later from Lindberg's renaissance a few years back. Much better kits.

    You are doing some amazing work on a poor kit. It's going to look great! Keep it up and have fun with it.

    I need a 55-57 GMC conversion! Anyone?
    Years ago someone made a 55-57 GMC conversion for AMT Chevy truck kit. I think it may have been Shawn Carpenter. I have heard that GM made him stop sell it. Does anyone have one they would be willing to sell or trade?

    Was this modified from AMTs fastback kit? If so I may have to get one and try to use the roofline with one of their notch backs.

    The first I remember was my dad's 1965 Mustand 2+2. It was light metallic blue with the sport wheels. It had the fold down rear seat. He loved that car.

    Sadly I don't have any pictures of the first vehicle I bought,  but Revell's releasing of the 1982 F150 has made it possible for me to start on a model of it.

    In Texas we always called them a panel van or panel delivery. You've done an awesome job on this. I have one I painted blue that is on the get-to-it list. You've inspired me.  I'm gonna have to move it up in line!

    Just amazing. Good build and the weathering looks just right too!

    Looks good to me. Just needs a little music player singing over the river and through the woods!

    What he says. Proper preparation prevents P-poor product. Get rid of seams and irregularities on everything. Prime everything it helps see mold  lines, I use a Dupli-Color sandable spray can type then sand it smooth. #4 is great, the only thing I would add is to make a stand for the parts and buy some of those resealable plastic shoebox type bins. As soon as you are through painting, put the parts in one to dry. It helps keep dust off the fresh paint and minimizes the fumes when you bring the parts in to dry.

    Right now Modelhaus would be your best bet on those.
