    Wow. What did these poor cars ever do to people?
    Must've been real bad to deserve this treatment.

    Johan Ambulance-to-Hearse conversion kit?
    I just picked up the Johan Fire/Ambulance kit on fleaBay and want to convert it to a hearse. Did anyone make a conversion kit that does this, or am I going to have to piece it together from all the resin parts people are selling on eBay?
     
    Thanks!!

    Yes... AND the different motors as well....

    Military Surplus outlets often have cleaned up (or sometimes NOT clean! Eww....) office equipment like file cabinets, desks, bookcases, safes, shelving, school desks, notary stations (document tables), lamp lighting, post office centers, tool racks, mapping or plotter desks, and other reclaimed furniture for cheap that work wonders for hobbying needs.
    Always a great place to find good workstation furniture there.

    With the recent '70 Revell Cuda in 1:25 scale, I'm hoping for both a '71 conversion with gills and an AAR '70, neither of which require extensive modifications. The '71 would need an appropriate grill, taillights, and gills on the side along with proper billboards and hockey-stick striping. The AAR would need a proper hood and markings to bring it to life.
    A convertible in either '70 or '71 is also not out of the realm of possibility here.

    RARELY do I ever build one identical to the box. I like to research pics of the 1:1 car in question and/or letting my creativity out of the bottle.
  9. Drake69 added a post in a topic Anyone have any real insider info on Revell's "new" '70 Charger?   

    Stock or not, this kit has some serious potential. I've been wanting a decent '70 Charger for a long time without having to pay "Johan premium" for it, or fight with resin castings that may or may not have imperfections, be exact, etc... I intend to buy at least 2~3 of this kit AND a number of them when the base stock kits come out. The look of that engine alone just screams "parts swap" !!!
    Now, I wonder what the General Lee would look like with a blower popping out of the hood like that.....

    Any new word on this yet? Still high on the want list.

    Just one is fine for me.
    WANT.

    I'm intrigued. Won't cross my eyes if I need to swap out a few things for a more accurate build.

    Despite being a "superbird", it doesn't fly very well.
    Trust me.

    Just got back. I picked up...
     
    Miami Vice Spyder
    Snap 77 Monte Carlo
    Ferrari California
    71 Mustang
    Ford GT Mustang 2-in-1
    Revell 80's Camaro
    Monogram '55 Ford Pickup
    Revell Snap Police Car
     
    Not too shabby a haul. Several of the kits mentioned in this thread were there that I didn't get except for the Little Red Wagon which was sold out. No BHC Novas either. Ohh well.
