I don't want to wrestle with that fidgety AMT 1969 Chevelle. We need a new- tool 1968-1972 Chevelle, Bottom line. Definitely a Freudian slip on my end regarding the Sportabout ; I meant to say Runabout
- 440 / 440 Six Barrel version of the Revell 1970. ' Cuda - 1971 'Cuda - 1970 Charger - Pinto Sportabout - 1970Dart Swinger ( good lord , wouldn't a stock 340 version with the 426 Hemi and its related hardware be the best ?!! An A/MP 1970 Swinger would be sweet !) - 11970-1972 El Camino of - 1969 COPO Chevelle
Yes , half of those in my list are 'in-my- dreams' , but others are realistic .
Any and every old-in- a - new- box Revell kit in the 70s !! The 57 Chevy was oone which I attempted time and again only to toss it or give it away . MPCs horrid decals in the 70s also . Absolute garbage !! Those pieces of dung would disintergrate instantly , even on new relaeses !!
One would certainly hope so . Last AMT Pacer WAGON kit I had was of the circa 1977 annual . I bought it at FedCo in 1982 for less than a dollar (!) . The 1987 Whittier Earthquake destroyed it ... and 98% of my collection up to that point .
fOr the longest timeI was under the impression that Rallye Wheels were still available in 1980 . However , all of my research has turned up the other , body coloured wheels as being the correct wheels ; apparently , there were some anodised, stylled aluminimum wheels available as well (?) . I'm planning on using either Rallye wheels or plan wheels with hubcaps . Time " wheel" tell 😏
I have an original issue of this kit ; the T-tops aren't molded in , per see ; those are just (obtrusive) trimming guides. I can't stand T-tops, either .With some careful filing and sanding ,those obnoxious t'-top lines should disappear .
Another vote of favour for Tamiya! I use their paints (and their adhesives and putties) almost exclusively , and have for 20 years+ . To add to the fanfare ; I have two bottles of Tamiya paints which are now 30 years old , and theyre just as good as they were the day I opened them in 1986 ! Expensive , but worth every cent !
Depnds on what I'm working on . If it's an assembly which begs for something chill , then I'll listen to classical . Something that calls for imagination , I'll listen to Nuggets or DeathRock or psychedellic .
