  1. It is in the Motion kit, but it's one piece
  2. Happy to hear this, always liked the full bumper better
  3. Tim, did you see a 70ish full bumper Camaro coming from AMT?
  4. I saw a pic of their display of new and upcoming kits from a show on another board, looks like the early 70s full bumper Camaro Z-28 is on it's way too
  5. Absolutely, cause they bring big bucks now on the bay.
  6. The bed is from the Revell 56, had one lying around so I used it. Only modification I did to the bed was to lay down the bed rails, I just like them lying flat instead of angled. You might want to do that to yours, the 78-79 were the only years (I think) that had the bed rails flat instead of angled. And thanks for the comment!! Yours is coming along nicely!
  7. Here it is, figured out how to do it...kinda
  8. I built a 60 Flareside a few years ago, I would post a pic if I knew how LOL. Bought the 60 model on eBay, the bed had already been removed and poorly shortened, so I decided to go with the step bed. Raided every parts box I had and made a pretty cool "modern-retro" 4x4 with big block FE power. Turned out pretty nice, very happy with it.
  9. Kris Morgan makes a fantastic 73-79 Ford bed, pm him on Facebook or here. His website is Morgan Automotive Detail, but not sure if the Ford beds are on there. I'm all for the 59 Ford front end, of the 57-60 Fords it's always been my favorite.
  10. Can you share your method of fixing the passenger side tires so that the directional tread is correct? Very nice job on this one!!
  11. Looks good sir!! One suggestion, before you button that light bar down, might want to lower it a little closer to the roof. I drove several police cars with that very same Federal JetSonic, and they mount very close to the roof. So close that you couldn't really clean under them LOL!!
  12. Check the last post on page 2, get one from David Parsley, best I've seen. He makes the domes from real glass, so they will never fog!
  13. My copy came in yesterday, and all I can say is unbelievable!! I haven't bought a whole lot of resin, but I do have a couple of Modelhaus products, and believe me, this one is in the same class. I won't go into all the details, but you guys hit this one out of the park!! Can't wait to see what you guys come out with next!!
  14. The biggest problem I have with this kit is the wheels. AMT cheaped out and molded the wheels to fit the regular kit 15" tires, where on the real truck the wheels I think were 17s. The kit wheels look, for lack of a better word, "dinky" on the truck. I got frustrated and just put it up, but then, I took one of the AMT wheels and modified it to fit a hogged out Monogram 1/24 wheel rim that fits the Goodyear Gatorbacks they put in the Mustangs and some others back in the 90s. Takes a lot of time, so I put it up again and moved on to other things. Once I found out about Joseph at Fireball Modelworks I contacted him, told him what I had done to modify the wheel, and he said he would cast me some. I'm going to send the one I have and get it done, and told him I had no problem with him offering them on his website if he thought they were good enough. He declined because he doesn't have a tire to fit them. However, once I send my modified wheel to him, I bet if any of you would like a copy he would cast some more, but probably only if there was some demand. Now that the kit is coming back, there may actually be some demand. I'll let ya'll know when I get around to sending it to him, just been very busy lately.
