  1. Revell 1968 Chevelle

    Taillights are completely different as well.
  2. 1969 Beaumont front bumper/grille

    Dehinitely interested. Will this be a nose and taillights to fit the AMT body or is this going to be a complete Beaumont body? Hopefully a nose piece and tail lights so that I can do a hardtop and convertible.
  3. Need help identifying these parts

    Given the style of the wheel and the color of the plastic and the fact that I have one that looks almost the same, I am pretty sure that the melted wheel and tire are out of one of the early issues of the Orange Crate.
  4. What Irked You Today?

    Yup. Two of the big no-no's on here. No politics, no religious posts. Just going to start a fight no matter how well intentioned the original post is. Nobody will be right and nobody will be wrong.
  5. The monogram coupe has been released in 3 if not 4 different shades of green depending on the age and issue.
  6. News of Revell molding preparing in US

    Yeah, I have to agree with Niteowl. Unless they got that tooling for basically scrap value I cannot see it being the greatest investment. The market is still pretty much flooded with those mid 90s early 2000s NASCAR kits. Not sure how they will mold more and make any money doing it. And having seen some of their new offerings I don't have a whole lot of confidence in the Salvino's abilities to "update" these kits and have them be an accurate representation of whatever they update them to.
  7. AMT Piranha Hemi Dragster Out Soon

    I cannot believe that It hasn't gotten locked yet. That is how these ones usually end up.
  8. Doesn't the Olds Aerotech have a quad 4 engine in it as well?
  9. AMT MPC Put Out the Good Stuff!

    I know you have difficulty with facts and this makes your posts somewhat rambling and difficult to follow but please at least try to get the names of some of the pioneers of drag racing right. Out of respect for them if for no other reason. The man whose name in question I'm talking about is Tommy Greer. Not green like the color. Greer with an r at the end of it. The one dragster that you have been talking about has been called the Greer, Black and Prudhomme dragster for many years. Calling it anything else is confusing and adds to the difficulty of following your posts. The Greer, Black and Prudhomme dragster was a partnership between three different people. The car was funded by Tommy Greer, a machine shop owner. The engine and clutch were looked after by Keith Black one of the top engine builders of the day. And the driving was handled Don Prudhomme, who at the time was a hot shoe and went on to drag racing legend status. The Greer, Black and Prudhomme car and the three partners who ran it were a nearly unbeatable combination at the time. During the time that Greer Black and Prudhomme ran that particular dragster, it racked up an incredibly impressive record of 236 wins and only 7 losses. Facts and Names are important. Please try to get them right.

    Grille is different, taillights are completely different, front marker light and rear backup light locations are different, dash is different, some differences in the interior trim (might not be an issue small scale), the 68 has vent windows on the doors and the 69 does not and the body trim has differences (trim differences are also present from model to model during the same year so who knows what they will do) Basic body shape and roofline are identical. Hoods, doors, trunklid etc are interchangeable. Frame and running gear are mostly the same (different options available depending on the year) Here is hoping it comes true. I love the AMT 69 Chevelle but the molds are getting pretty long in the tooth. A new tool 68 and 69 Chevelle would be more than welcome.
  11. eBay part seller now gone

    Except I have not found a way to permanently exclude specific sellers permanently from searches. They need an ignore list like we have here on the forum. And excluding a spcific seller on mobile devices is more hassle than it is worth.
  12. The best $50 I have ever spent

    I have to strongly disagree with you on that one. I have a 600 holley 4 barrel w/vac secondaries (that I bought new and tuned to the engine/cam) on a mild SBC that I drove daily in the summer for almost ten years, stored the car for a full decade (stored properly w/fuel system drained as I knew it was going to be a long hibernation), brought back to life after that decade in dry storage (ran a can of sea foam cleaner mixed with the first tank of hi-test)and I have driven it almost daily again for the last two summers. All on the original build from holley. Fuel bowls have not been off of it and the jets etc have not been touched since it was first tuned properly to work with the combo I am running. Almost all issues with holley carbs can be attributed to improper tuning, improper carb for the application (750 double pumper on a 305 because it sounds cool to say etc) or a carb that is badly worn and needs properly rebuilt (throttle shaft bushings replaced etc). A properly selected, jetted, tuned, set up and looked after holley carb will work very well for a long time. Cool Satellite. I would be tempted to repaint it as it is painted now. You would not see another like it at a show and restored stockers are boring.
  13. 1/25 MPC 904 '57 Chevy Flip Nose

    I think what he means is that the same prop vehicle was used in two-lane blacktop as well.
  14. 1/25 MPC 904 '57 Chevy Flip Nose

    55 tail lights in it for sure. 56 tail lights are completely different.
  15. 69 chevelle taillights

    Those look pretty good. I will have to order some and try them out. Thanks for the pic. Your model? Looks great.
