    IMO, whether at a full sized car show or a model car show, if you are there with the intent to win a trophy...... you are missing the point entirely.

    Check out the Detroit resin guys too. I think it is Chris Morgan that has the bumper and taillights/lenses. And yes they are far better than what is in the kits. He also has a flat hood to model a non-SS car. And as stated above the chassis and underhood detail leave quite a bit to be desired. Using the chassis from the 69 Olds W-30 or 442 kit is a drop in fit. To use the 68 elcamino kit requires some adjustment.

    The spreader bar goes between the frame rail ends. To spread them apart. I believe what he is referring to is the nerf bars. Used in place of bumpers.

    Sign me up for a half dozen of the backdated little T. And at least one maybe two little Deuce kits.

    Agree with this. Plus if you used paypal and the seller ripped you off, you will get your money back and the seller will get dinged. As long as you report it within the 45 day window they allow for claims.

    To save a bit of frustration.... the hood on the AMT 69 Chevelle 2 dr hardtop kit and the 90's tooling AMT 68 Elcamino kit are different sizes and will not interchange without some adjustments. I cannot remember off the top of my head which is bigger though. If you had the old school 69 Elcamino from way back the hood from the 69 Chevelle should fit as they are based on the same tooling but I do not have one (69 Elcamino kit) to verify that as fact.
    I have a couple of Kevins flat base hoods and they fit the Chevelle hardtop and convertible bodies A1.

    And from the "why didn't I think of that" file. Great tip. I will be using this one. Thanks!

    Just rolled into home. 1100 miles round trip. Great show this year.

    I quite often do this with wheels and tires. I build mostly old school hot rods and customs so the big wheel rubber band tire packages that are in a lot of the kits nowadays as the optional set of hot rod wheels hold no interest for me. However, I know a lot of guys like them. So I quite often will sell them at model swap meet for between$4 and $6 a set depending on how much I paid for the kit. Works well for me to get rid of parts that I was not going to use any way to be able to make the kit cheaper for me in the end.
     
    For example, the Revell 50 Ford pickup (yellow truck on the box art). I have sold several of them minus both sets of the wheels and tires and the complete Ardun converted flat head. I keep the flathead and the skinny wheels and white wall tires and small hubcap for myself sell the big dia wheels and tires off separately and then sell the rest of the kit. I mark it as being incomplete, missing engine and wheels and tires and I usually still get $10 for what is left of it. I will get between 5 and $6 for the large diameter wheels and tires out of it and that makes my engine, wheels and tires pretty cheap.

    I do not have a desktop computer or a laptop. I do all my interneting via tablet or smartphone.

    Same here. "Cannot open file"
    Would like to see what you have but can't.

    That is pretty cool. It looks like it has seen a lot of hard miles.

    No problem. I didn't want this guy to rip anyone else off. Scam artists like this guy deserve to be outed in public so no one else gets taken.

    For anyone who has not already seen the thread about this guy, you should check it out before you think about sending either DRDEVIL72 or MOONSHINEANDCHROME any money.

    I was posting the information about a possible scammer so that if anyone had not seen the thread about him ripping off people on the board, then they would be aware.
