      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    *Very* interesting!
    Thanks for posting this.

    My preference is for the Scale Equipment LTD wheels also. Rick's set with the separate (already chromed) trim rings have a more correct depth that the MPC wheels never had.

    There are no decals included in the Cordoba/300 kit.

    I have one and it's very nice. I prefer it over one from Time Machine Resin that I've had for a while.
    Any variance between the two (there might be others) will only be in the castings as these are straight re-pops of styrene kit parts.
    Jeff at Firebird Designs is offering Ventura II "Sprint" decals from his on-line store HERE and also on eBay.
    For Rally II wheels, I always like to plug Rick at Scale Equipment LTD for their two-piece white resin wheels with separate, already chromed, trim rings.

  5. john sharisky added a post in a topic Any resin kits based of Moebius Chryslers?   

     
     
    I've purchased two of the 300C prototypes(shown above), one '56 Imperial and one '56 New Yorker coupe. I received the two prototypes first. I liked what I saw. Based on that I then purchased the two others.

    Oh, I did finally receive the SE kit. One e-mail or a simple handwritten "Thank You" note with the kit would have left a much different impression.

    He kept me waiting nearly two years for the '73 Dodge Charger SE kit purchased from his website.
    I have verification that he did same to a friend of mine.

    I'll take one.

    This "Page" guy ("Pedro"?) was set up at the last Detroit-area show (I don't live there - there was a partial photo of his table on the Spotlight Board). I found his e-mail address but he did not respond to me. His Facebook page is not public.
    He must be trying for "Business Man of the Year".

    It'll be easy to find listed under eBay's "Completed Auctions".

    Your photo shows replicas of the '63 Ford Thunderbird Sports Roadster wheels (not covers). These wheels now seem ubiquitous on (over)restored late '50's and early '60's Ford products.
    Your Mom sounds like a real hepcat for owning such a fancy Crown Vic!
    I'll bet that she had these cool Ford accessory wheel covers:
     

    (I took this photo)
     
    Unfortunately, The Modelhaus offered REALLY nice castings of these wheel covers.

    I just checked my eBay account. I've purchased six times from this seller in the past year (usually multi-part sales). Never a problem. I'm there to purchase model car parts - not to judge a sellers acuity.
