      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Nicely done, Walter! Love the 'day one' idea too!
    Thanks,

    Thanks Mr. Boyd for the excellent review! My only complaint would be the orange plastic, but I can wait for the other releases too!

    Hi Len,
    Depending on how bad they're warped (and the type of resin they're made from), you have a couple of options. First, you could put the bodies in very warm tap water until the resin has softened slightly and then work the body back into shape. I would then put the body in very cold water to 'set' the body shape. Or, you could cut the sides (if they're straight) and re-glue them (with super glue). I've had some experience with this back in the old days when I used to have my resin business.
    Hope this helps!

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I believe that's a resin '65 Comet (Perry's) if memory serves. Bob has been displaying it for several months. Fooled me when I saw it at the Milwaukee NNL in April too!
    Thanks,

    My money is it did not. Each 'Mule' car from Chrysler came with all of the A990 stuff.

    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.

  13. Jim_Kampmann added a post in a topic `65 Plymouth Hemi Super Stock "Melrose Missile"-Moebius/Model King   

    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,
