Hopefully they will eventually re-issue all of those 1/32 Semi kits We Did get the Mack R with Tank trailer last year(2 yrs ago) and just recently the Freightliner Conventional & Box/Refer van Now this year we are getting the KW Aerodyne Conventional
Same here A LOT and I have shown them too 63 Galaxies Sport Roof & convertible from a Sports roof starts when they were First re-issued in the Prestiege series!! The 65 Pontiac GTO Tempest LeMans Safari, and on and on and on..............
AMT offered the JoHan George Folmer Javelin/AMX kit too back in the EARLY 70's I have 3 of them They were sold through Coca-Cola ads, and in stores They were Mark Donahue's Penski car!!! They could be either Trans Am or Nascar as Mark did drive in a FEW 71 & 72 Nascar events For Pernski
The Jav/AMX was used until the redesigned Matador came out in 73. After Mark's Death, Bobby Allison joined Penski's Nascar team
I did the Paint method of Vinyl roof on a 70 Eldorado. seams were done with ,01x.02 evergreen strip just get them Straight. as long as they are close to where they are on the actual car That was Easy on the Edlo, as it only has 1 down the center
Use a Color of Flat paint Close to what the final roof color will be My Eldo has a White roof, so used flat white paint.
And Here CHEAP Store brand enamel is best!! No need to pay high dollar for a Name brand!!!
The Texture paint may also work, but Try to find one close to roof color and see if you can get a Clearanced one!! My Wally's has 3 different colors now clearanced! Might grab one of each
Interesting idea, but Bonneville Slat Flats would be about the Only place it could run with the width of the front axle track, and how close the fenders & skirts are, you can Only turn it by Tow truck!!!! or replace all that fiberglass/carbon fiber at EVERY pitstop!!!!!!!!
For aerodynamic reasons the front tires should Not stuck out past the fenders!!! But, it will also force WIDE turns due to limiting how tight a radius they fronts can steer!did not do so well here. They still do it all over Europe, Asia & even Assie!!
I even have a couple PC game demos of Semi truck racing
Blazing Bison was the Tractor's Name Meister Brau was only its Sponser!!!! Curious as to what decals version will be offered
I do remember that when this kit came out, the actual tractor had gone to 5 Engines!! 2 were at 90 Degree angle to the three in-line 1 off each side!!!! I believe between the second & third in-line engines
Actually, The tail lights are Chrome in the P-L kit as they are part of the rear bumper!! I also have both kits!! I Cut the 4 Bullitts off the rear bumper on my P-L kit!!! I was Not able to do that for the larger lenses surrounding the backup lights!!
The AMT kit has ONLY the Step Bumper as that was how the car was Modified for the second Movie! Ecto-1 in the first movie had a Standard rear Bumper the 1A of the second movie had the Step Bumper Here is my Photobucket album for Ecto-1 & 1A http://s145.photobucket.com/user/EdselDan/library/Models/Ghostbusters?sort=3&page=1
Both are the AMT kit!! the 1A is completed, the 1 is stalled. I still need to the correct Stock Cadillac Hubcaps for her, and to tint the windows. I do not think the scribed line in the window piece is for Standard Ambualnce tinting Both Movies show a Clear Band in the side & tailgate (rear door) windows with Upper & lower section tinted gray/dark This is Easily seen in the interior shots while enroute to a call Harold Ramis & Bill Murry looking at where they are going in the WILD ride/Turn!!!
Here Polar-Lights has the windshield & front doors in clear, while the rest are in VERY Dark gray/black (BARELY transluscent let alone transparent!!! So AMT kit is the Best to start with for that alone!!!
Both kits have errors. AMT gave us Chrome Reverse rimes with Baby Moons. ONLY the Baby Moons were Chrome in the Movie the rims were White! Both give us Incorrect Spotlight mounts and omit the side Mirror from the Spotlight P-L kit does Not have the Standard Caddy side Mirror, or AM radio antenna!! YES there were TWO side Mirrors on Ecto-1!!\And the Short Antenna on the right fender!! Also Ecto-1 had Two Larger Whip antennas. the one on the right front CLOSE to the AM radio antenna and a Second on the left rear Both clip to the roof rack/carrier at or near the top front cross bar
The ladder in the P-L kit is too heavy, and Bent while the car has a Straight ladder!!
I watched those movie scenes Over and Over on BOTH movies (OLD VHS tapes, I recorded off HBO/Max/Showtime/???)
AMT's Message board decals are VERY incorrect The original Box art showed the actual car. I counted the Dots, and made my own from Blank Revell Goodyear Blimp sighs!! Scaled down on a Photocopier way back when!! I had to splice them to get the correct length!! (did that before reducing them!)
That Photo-etch set would have been Nice back them!!! Looking at the decals I need to check the second movie again I remember seeing "WE PROMISE" not We're Ready before "TO BELIEVE YOU" We Promise is on the front fender!!!!!
I know I am likely repeating info I gave back then, but..... Better to repeat, than forget!!!!
