  1. Need help narrowing a model

    Cost a bit of money but far less work: http://www.rocketfin.com/resin_product.cfm?id=5315 Maybe not even as much money as you might think if you ended up having to buy 3 kits to make one body.
  2. 1969 Beaumont front bumper/grille

    I just about fell off the couch laughing when I read this. My wife thinks I'm nuts and is giving me the SSSSSHHHH the baby is sleeping glare. Funniest one that I have read in quite a while. The conversion kit is looking great. Looking forward to when we can order some. Any idea of a price point yet?
  3. AMT and MPC Please Put Out Significant Kits

    He has been corrected at least twice on the name of one of the pioneers of hot rodding and he still doesn't have enough respect to get Don Tognotti's name properly spelled. One of the posts where regular guy misspelled the name he had a picture of the box art for the King T that had Don's name in big letters on the box lid and he still mangled the name. No respect given means less than none earned in return.
  4. 1/25 MPC 904 '57 Chevy Flip Nose

    Wheels and tires are completely different. Kit has the wire style wheels from the last MPC issue (red car with grey stripes, issued after the Rockin Roller) and the fat treaded goodyear(?) Tires, not the slicks shown. Also has the Mr. Gasket style street scoop on the two fours, not the gasser style scoop shown on the box art. I believe the hood has the opening all the way to the back to clear the bigger scoop as well, not the closed at the back part shown on the box art.
  5. Amt '66 Riviera: your input, please

    Casey, I still have the engine/trans in my shop that is in the picture posted a few posts above this one. What all measurements would you like? Just the valve cover sizes? I can get them for you tomorrow. It's cold and rainy tonight so I'm not going back out to the shop tonight.
  6. Hey everyone just noticed this on eBay. I know this is a sought-after resin conversion kit that does not pop up very often so I figured I would let you guys know about it. I have no connection to the auction at all and I personally have no interest in this conversion so I have no dog in the race for this one. Just figured I would let you guys know about it. The eBay item number is 362459720592 Not sure if I'm allowed to post a direct link or not. As of this posting there is 9 days and change left in the auction.
  7. Some of the flat box kits were molded in white and some were molded in orange. You had to look for the little sticker that tells you what color they were molded in. Although, maybe not all of the boxes got the sticker.
  8. What Irked You Today?

    Folks like that are one of the reasons that train horns on trucks (and cars) are becoming pretty popular. One two second blast at 180db tends to get the point across. Usually the slowpoke lane hogs move into over into the slow lane before a second blast is warranted.
  9. Revell 1968 Chevelle

    Taillights are completely different as well.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. The monogram coupe has been released in 3 if not 4 different shades of green depending on the age and issue.
  14. 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.
  15. AMT Piranha Hemi Dragster Out Soon

    I cannot believe that It hasn't gotten locked yet. That is how these ones usually end up.
