      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

    That is a Latham Axial supercharger. Super hens teeth rare in real life. I believe the one you have pictured is from one of the AMT 1925 model T double kits where the hot rod engine is a kinda sorta lincoln V8. Not 100 percent accurate to the real engine but sorta close. The supercharger is fairly well rendered IMO though.

    The thread is 3 years old. The revell '29 Ford roadster had not been released yet at that point.

    Thanks for the review Tim. One slight correction to the text in your Fotki article. The original 1969 Elcamino kit was issued at least twice. Once with the soap box derby artwork and car and once with very similar box art to the "RATMAN" 1969 Chevelle. The Elcamino was shown with the custom headlights (cibie maybe?), custom grille and nerf bumpers. Photobucket is being difficult again so I cannot post a pic but if you google image "AMT 1969 el camino", several pictures of the box art pop up.

    Would the flathead 4 banger out of the old 1/24 monogram Model A series of kits work?  Not as detailed as the revell version but not horrible either.  And being 1/24 scale it should look right as well. Should be lots of those around from all the kits that got hot rodded over the years. I know I have several still on the trees in my stash.

    Ebay, search 30 awg wire. Lots of colors available.

    10 ft each of 10 different colors for 6 bucks. Likely never run out. 10-12 inches per model average in my experience.
    Also known as kynar wire.

    The pic has disappeared from the original post. Any chance you can repost it?

    I guess that could be considered looking on the bright side of things. ☺

    The Woody was never released in stock form. It was always a hot rod. Other the wheel and tire changes and the addition of a few extra parts such as the deuce grill/shell and the large diameter wheels in the last issue, it has remained remarkably the same as it was when it was first issued. But you are right, the stock parts will exchange on to it as it is built on the same basic architecture as the coupe, the cabriolet, and the tub.
    A couple of interesting things to note about the coupe and the cabriolet - they were both originally part of the 6n1 kit. That appears to be one of the reasons why the coupe roof was removable. The same lower body section could be used with the Cabriolet door tops and windshield posts. When monogram split the coupe and the cabriolet into two different kits they the tooled up a second set of fenders for the coupe with no spare tire wells in the front fenders. It is my belief that they also tooled up a new lower body section to go with the new fenders for the coupe as well. IMO I think this is why the door lines do not quite line up on one side of the coupe kit now. On the original 6n1 kit that I have looked at,  the door lines do line up properly.

    I have found that removing one razor saw blade width at the middle of the back of the fender unit makes that annoying gap disappear.

    I'll play too. Stock height coupe early 50's style.

    If you had an understanding and an appreciation of how much work and how much fine tuning it takes to make a race car stick to the corners wide open like that you might not dismiss it so easily. A lot of cars carrying that much speed and momentum into the corner would slide right up the track and try to smash a hole through the outside wall. It takes a very well set-up car and a very skilled driver to make a race car go around the track like that.

    I'm having the same issues Mark. Some topics will stall my browser completely (Chrome). I have to refresh the screen to clear it up.

    Heck yeah! Now we are cooking with fire. That firewall looks great. I'm in for at least 3.
  14. Toner283 added a post in a topic Will we see other G-body cars after the 83 Hurst Olds?   

    The nascar spec cars were also produced for the Monte Carlo. Google "Monte Carlo Aerocoupe" and it will pop up. Same back window as the Pontiac 2+2 but IMO less overinflated looking.

     I would love to see this one reissued. Would love to build one of each engine option and line them up in a case.
