      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    AMT 70 1/2 Camaro versions?
    OK. Just picked up the AMT Baldwin Motion Camaro. Having had the "Old" Z-28 version. years ago, I knew this one was a new tooling. I got it for the "parts" to do another kit...tires, wheels, engine, etc.
    Upon opening it, I was pleasantly surprised. This one runs circles around the "old" kit. 
    Question is...is the AMT 70 1/2 Z-28 that was last released ( Lime Green actual car box art ) the "old' molding, or, the current Baldwin Motion tool???
    Thanks in advance.

    Hey, that doesn't look to bad at all. Your work, of course.

    Why bother? The '70 Chevelle was one of the ugliest Chevelles ever.
    The '68 and '71-72 styles were the Ultimate.
    However, if you want a '70...go for it!

    Fireball Modelworks!
    Just received my Fireball Modelworks tires, and white letter decals.
    WOW!  The mainstream manufacturers have never put out a tire that "looked" the right width and diameter that I have in the pics of my 1/1 cars.
    Joseph has NAILED it!
    Ordered the Mickey Thompson N-50's in both 1/24 and 1/25 to compare. Lined them up on a '67 Impala (had one) and a '61 Impala (had three of these, 1/1) and they are perfect! Capture that '70's/'80's look just right.
    Be ordering 4 more sets next week. Will experiment with shaving the raised M/T letters off, and applying Fireballs white letter decals to reflect the tires I had (Cooper Cobra, etc)
    If you haven't tried these out...you are missing out.

    Good start.
    I got my first one of these kits in '69 or '70. "Bonnie and Clyde" version (although they were killed in a '34) with bullet hole decals.
    This should be interesting.

    My "beef" with the Lindberg '61 (also the '53 Ford) was spotty, thin chrome plating.
