    Thanks John. I believe they were taken from the AMT '60 Ford Starliner kit.

    Here are a couple more shots I had taken a few days ago. Thanks again, everyone! I still need to add a rear license plate bracket and bumper guards (yes, Bill had them for whatever reason!).

    Bill,
    The cars were put together from a 'body in white' by Chrysler with A990 sedan parts. The Melrose Missile hardtop remained in California and was converted into the A/FX altered wheelbase car.
    There's plenty of information out there if you want to find it.

    Steve is correct. Chrysler put four hardtops together for the '65 NHRA Winternationals. The Melrose Missile that Moebius produced is one of those cars. Refer to the excellent book titled "Maximum Performance" by James J. Schild. The other three cars were the Golden Commandos, the Ramchargers and Color Me Gone. 
    Thanks,

    Hi Steve,
    It's all on the flyer. We usually have about 400 models entered in the show, from all over the upper midwest including Canada. The swap meet is nice; right now we have 31 (8') tables sold. 
    Lots of aftermarket stuff plus harder to find kits. A great raffle for the show too; stuff donated by Round 2 and Slixx decals. Probably looking at 40-50 kits in the raffle for door prizes.
    The Knights of Columbus Hall is about 10 minutes from the Mall of America. 
    Hope to see you tomorrow, thanks for writing!

    Thanks Ed! Like you, I would have never thought in a million years we would see something like this! Can't wait to see them on the shelf!

    Bill, 
    With all due respect - most, if not all of Speed City's stuff is copies of other people's resin (including mine). Scott's made plenty of money. The fact that Scott makes claims that his is the 'only accurate one available' is pure B.S. 
    Bring on the plastic versions! 
    Thanks,
    Jim Kampmann

    Len,
    He told me the same thing at the Milwaukee NNL last weekend. It's an all new tool and to quote Ed "the '68 - '69 kit parts 'may' be interchangeable". He also mentioned another version of this kit would be stock. 
    Thanks,
    Jim

    Hi Bill, 
    To be honest, the model is a test shot they sent me a couple months ago. I wish I could build that fast!
    Thanks,
    Jim

    Hi Michael, 
    Thanks for the kind words. There are some great reference photos of these cars out there; I just try to find the right colors and finishes to make the parts as realistic looking as possible. As for the engine, I had to grind a little bit of the back of the firewall to make it fit right. It's probably back a little bit too far as the gap between the fan and radiator isn't as tight as it should be. I have several cars I want to build from this kit, and I've learned a lot on what to do differently on the next one.

    Hi Walter,
    I used Tamiya AS-15 Tan, it's a military color. 
    Thanks,
