    I know it, a 53 (last year for flathead) but what is you guys take on Lindberg's flathead. I know it was a good builder but I don't know how you experts like it. Love that 53 Ford kit.

    Looking for info on 63-67 vettes
    I am looking for info for building C2 corvette models. Amt, revell and mpc. I want to build each year if possible. I know I can just get available kits but I am wondering.. The 67 Revell kit appears to be the only full chassis kit readily available and relitivly cheap. Sure their are others but at getting at least 4, it's easier. Knowing it's 1:25 like will the chassis from 67 Revell work under Amt or Mpc bodies.

    1963 Easy split window and conv
    1964 not so easy
    1965 not so easy Monogram has 1:24 I did buy a 1:25 from Stingray (TV show)Revell
    1966 not so easy
    1967 Revell fastback and conv
    Mpc has some fastbacks but I want stock not dragstrip

    There are many diff vettes made for various years but not really affordable $50 or higher

    Is the 67 revell chassis good enough to represent all years

    I have done a little more work,mostly sanding, smoothing and surround around grille. Getting ready for next thin coat of primer. I usually do this 2 or 3 time to work out all the scratches and marks I left in the body - LOL. All one color lets me see the imperfections.

    Looks I will these tires and rims

    Thanks for all the compliments guys So far (LOL not painted yet) this has been really fun.
    Stupid me I found out where the hockey sticks came from - 1955 Pontiac - I did'nt know !!!
    Bear with me this build could take awhile. I don't have the paint I have to order it. Hope to go with Brandywine candy from HOK. Like the pics, Maybe Candy apple red.
    On to the grille. I have scratch built a little something. I could not find anything I like in my small stash of stuff,

    I used .047 music wire and bent each piece a little diff

    I made the retainers for the wire from styene.



    I will trim the retainers away and glue the tubes in when all done.

    You nailed it Joker. Funny you came up with that pic. I saw the same one and it is my inspiration for this build !!!!!
    My wheels are just mock-ups in the pics above.Tires are Modelhaus but may be too wide of whitewall. Not sure yet how I will paint but I love the colors. I have some more pics to post yet. I used the wrong skirts and had to change them. The grille I found was from the 58 Impale kit but It doesn't seem to have enough shape to follow the hood beak. I am still on the hunt for one that fits better.

    I have also built a 57 for this contest. I took a little diff approach, a little more 50's with a twang of 2000's tires and wheelsl.

    I got my own hell child. I know the kit sucks anyway (Lindberg 48 Lincoln) but I just felt like commiting suicide I guess. Despite the 93 piece body (LOL) I really had no assy problems at all. I am building as many Indy Pace cars as I can otherwise i would never have built this kit. Every thing was going well till my new clear (Upol) I think I put on to heavy, 2 other models were OK. The passenger door bubbled up and the front fenders did the same. I had previous problems with the fenders and had been already painted twice. I was lucky with door I saved it and was lucky the Fred Cady decals had 2 sets of Logos, Whew. The fenders not so lucky I threw them back into the pond for about a month. I just took out about a week ago, cleaned them up a little and threw the whole kit back in the box to be finished at a later date. Been about 3 months since I first started it and may be 3 years till I go back.
