Didn't the Modified reissue '60 have the 13 inch tires But too large of a diameter rim?? The rim fit into the tire, but the bead detail was too large a diameter?? I believe I read that here in the reviews I still want that re-issue!!
I have the Styline kit and the Desert Race issue too That one also had the 13 in tires I know as it had thew Stock full Hubcaps!! Still have the instruction sheet!!!!!
That is from the second Keaton Batman movie!!! Both movies used the same Batmobile. AMT/Ertl added the Jet Turbine to the Mobile kit and replaced the Bat Plane with the SnapFsast Missile, & Bat Skiboat kits I got several for only $2.oo each way back when Revell kitted the Kilmer & Clooney Bat kits from the third & fourth films
One problem with the Fleetside bed in this and the 66 kits As molded it is a Stepside bed with Fleetside type fenders added They should have molded the bed in separate parts like the AMT/MPC 67-72 kits!! But Cut corners here I cut my Fantom Cameo Bed apart to make a more accurate Fleetside. Still it Is a Nice kit I want the 2 66 kits, and at least 1 more 65 to build a Stepside out of Mine is getting the Model King Open Road Mini-Motor Home body!!! YES, I had to stretch the chassis!!!!
Built one myself Never had a problem with their Multi-Piece bodies Have 3-4 of the 59 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner Built the first in 74-75 when first re-issued!! Restoring that one Started a Skip's issue, but sold it last year Need to start another like that Opening doors, Steering, Continental kit, FULL Deluxe treatment!!! Just Finding a Color CLOSE to the Sunset Coral Ford painted them in 59!! (Close to the color Rev molded the 2 runs of the Skip's kit in!!) Want the US SSP issue molded in White I have the Rev-Gremany 50th Anniversary kit molded in Green They marked the box Correctly as a Fairlane 500 But Rev-US still calls it a Galaxie Look Closely FAIRLANE 500 Script on BOTH Rear fenders!!!! AMT Annual was a Galaxie!!
I would happily have a few more of the Rev 59/60 Vette kit!!!!
Those Twinsonics look Fantastic And 'X' shape Half Mirrors versus full height forward facing ones!!!!!! No department using them near me had the 'X' Half-height mirrors on them!!!! ONLY Ever saw ON in Cranberry area of Pennsy. WAY BACK when!!!!! Rt 19 BEFORE I-79 was more than Dream, only Partially built, Under Construction!!!!! Mid 70's!!
Hood is the same 4 piece as in the 3 Pickup kits Engine, Chassis, Engine bay, Grill insert, suspension are ALL the same I can see that in the pics above I have 2 of the 64, and a 65!! No 66 yet, but..............
If we could get one of the Ambulance/Hearse kit, we could likely get all four Or at least the Stock pair They were they same tooling with different inserts I have built enough of them to see the Ambulance "Full-View" Corner light location holes in the underside of the Hearse roof
I still have a built Roarin' Rambulance dragster and stock Ambulance as well as Hippy version & Stock Hearse
Definitely wish ANY Jo-Han kit could be re-issued But with Moebius pulling out from the ones they were testing (And the IMC kits announced) we will likely Never see re-issues of them any time soon If Ever!!!
Any news on the Curbside kits last announces\d b the New IMC, as well as the Turbine and 59 Dodge that Moebius Was Looking at running???
I would LOVE that 59 Rambler wagon again!! Especially with the SFPD decals that were to be included!!
