    Thanks for the repost of the decals Gary. They will be fine for what I want them for.
    I'm happy with the Police decals & parts, but the supercharger is also a bonus.

    Thanks for the info Chuck. It sounds like the wagon parts will be what I need to use on a 57 Chevy 283fi Police car. or maybe a 6 cyl 150 4 door sedan Military Police car ?    Anybody got a pic of the wagon decal sheet ?         
    I plunked down the money for a wagon today  Yes your right, MK are not readily available in the UK but ebay is always the answer. Maybe $12 shipping if you choose the right shop / seller.
    Danno, not many of my builds are 100% correct. Close but no cigar sounds ok lol
    Daddyfink, maybe we can all keep wishing for that Monaco kit . . . . . . . .

    Revell 57 Del Rio Cop parts ?
    Are the cop parts / decals in the 57 Del Rio kit, the same as in the Revell / Model King 57 Ford sedan ?

    Thanks Tom. It was a gift from another UK modeller the sign lights up & flashes too.
    The plan is to add more detail & a larger parking area.

    Well ya cant go wrong with the Pepper Shaker versions

    I think you covered most the stock / street issues Greg, so not much else I can ad, except the latest blue car AMT issue, only includes the stock parts. ie no 409 & custom goodies ect.
    Jed theres also the drag issues, Monograms 'Plum Crazy' funny car, Revells Tom McEwan funny car & Soff Seal pro mod. And the cartoon issues, Zingers / Deals Wheels ect

    If it was me, think it would have to be a Revell sedan or an AMT new tool Street Machine. But thats just me . . . . . .

    Sorry Gents not been on for a while due to long work hours.

    Thanks for all the replys. Those Scenes Unlimited hitches are real nice, but I think I'll go with some of your ideas & try & make one.
    Though I also have a stepside kit, so will have to have a look in there too.

    Where to buy or how to make a tow hitch & ball ?
    I'm building a Revell Silverado pickup as a tow vehicle, using the stock rear bumper.

    Do any kits come with tow hitch & balls ? Or any resin available ?
    If not is there an easy way to make them ?

    Can anybody help with this part ? It doesnt have to be new.
  11. 57peppershaker added a post in a topic AMT GMC Sonoma grill emblem wanted   

    Thanks for your replys Gents.
    I've now amended my want to the GMC emblem only.

    I'm not looking to do a 100% accurate replica of my truck, so dont want a full on scratch build project (& my scratch skill are real bad lol). If I can modify the Chevy grill ie black out the centre & ad the GMC badge, then that will be good enough.
    I wasnt sure the size of the black part of the Somona, so wondered if it would work for the 'infill' on my Chevy grill ? As far as I'm aware (but over to you guys) the Somona kit was the only one that had the 'GMC' as a separate part.

    From what I understand (& this is my 1st 1;1 pickup) the 99-01 Chevy / GMC trucks had very similar front ends. The revised 02 on models had more of a difference between the brands.

    I always try to build a 1;25 of my 1;1's, the Revell 99 stock Silverado kit is the closest thing to start with.

    AMT GMC Sonoma grill emblem wanted
    I'm looking to alter a 99 Chevy Silverado into a 99 GMC Sierra.
    The only 'GMC' I can find is from an AMT 90's GMC Sonoma, unless there is something better to use ?

    Has anybody got a spare GMC grill emblem / badge ?

    Any aftermarket guys do a full width windscreen ?
    Just thinking it would look cool with a passenger seat ect.

    What a great pair of huge 57's. I love the modded street machine.
    I have 3 of these that have remained unfinished for too long.

    Its a real shame that Revell dont update these 1;12 kits with different & more up to date options.

    Did you cast the over riders ? The white stripe with the Cragars looks cool.
