    Yes ! great kit and with two in the stash I have much work to do. 
    You may want to check an older issue of MCM as they had a great build -up of one.

    the company that makes them is Du-Bro I see them on ebay but couldn't copy the link

    The freezer trick works but you fill the tubes with water. You have to bend before the ice melts. Check with Hobbico,they have hobby sized tubing benders for the RC hobby.

    Thanks after posting this I gave it some thought and the t_bird would be  good choice. The model has been converted to a two door wagon with all the custom parts front and rear.

    Missing link does some resin upgrade tailights  And Shawn Carpenter does a rear panel. I've yet to order either however. The item that really bothers me on that car is the under hood area and the chassis. I scribed out a cowl and front radiator support from the AMT '69 442, and used the entire chassis as well . I've heard the '68 El Camino works well too.

    Nice assortment that you have there. I have a pile of those parts/pieces and have thought about casting them. Don't know what ones would see any interest.

    I have all of the Scale Dreams resin that I am aware of . I read that they did a transkit for a GTO kit but never saw it. The Scale Dreams I have are the Nomad, Corvair, Stingray, And the Indy concept . 
    The only Corvette after giving t some thought  that would have a top like this was one made by IDEAL. It was a large scale toy that could be taken apart.
    That top would be interesting to make a pattern of and vacuum form it.

    I don't believe I've ever seen that in a kit,And I started building in 1958. I do believe there were some regular tops molded clear thru the years,but not for the years '53- '55.

    Only with an electric motor powering it . According to my references.
  14. Mike Kucaba added a post in a topic Pontiac Banshee Concept Car 1988   

    Love your model and the real car too. I always thought the Banshee was better looking than the Corvette Indy. Has anyone ever used the frame and running gear on another build?
  15. Mike Kucaba added a post in a topic A MT /round 2 1970 Camaro's   

    Just to add to the reference here.Those that followed the older mag Car Modeler,in the January 1992 issue #11 there is an article on upgrades to the older issue of this kit. It is orange on the box ,but looks like the older issue that had some front nose issues. It goes on to describe how to make it somewhat less glaring. I don't know if this is easier than grafting the nose from the newer release,but something I might investigate.
    How about a MCM update on the 70's Camaro? Anyone .
