    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    Bill is correct, the Butch Leal California Flash '65 Plymouth A990 Sedan would be the correct kit to build the Black Arrow. My sources tell me the Flash kit will be available around the end of this month. 
    Thanks again for the continued interest in my model, I really appreciate it.

    Hi Jeremy,
    Good catch! (finding the Weber on the chrome tree!). Here is the B/FX 1965 Comet I built from the Moebius test shot. There's a nice photo of this model in the new Contest Cars magazine (featured from the NNL North event).
    The 289 will come with both the Webers and manifold, as well as a two-four setup and carbs as part of the B/FX version.
    Thanks,
    Jim

    Hi Russ, 
    The Foose logo is on the outside of the tailgate. I sanded it down smooth, but what sometimes occurs with lacquer paint (and happened here) was a 'ghosting' effect of the logo that I couldn't polish out of the paint. Rather than repaint the tailgate, I thought it might be fun to put a 'Ford' logo there. The decal is from the Polar Lights Gas Ronda Mustang Funny Car kit. 
    Thanks,
    Jim Kampmann

    Just finished mine in about three weeks. It was a fun build - paint is Tamiya Metallic Orange over a silver base. 
    Thanks Revell!

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

  13. Jim_Kampmann added a post in a topic Resin Funny Car Body   

    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!
