  1. I have Iceman's Coyote engine which is going into my Bronco kit. His castings are beautiful and very well detailed. I'm looking forward to getting the Hellcat kit for one of my old Mopars.
  2. Oh yeah! In addition, I wonder if Round2 has the MPC 68 Impala tooling.
  3. Tony, I agree regarding your comments on Fine Scale Modeller. When Kalmbach announced they will be cancelling Scale Auto, they told us they would have more automotive content in FSM...BS. Very disappointing and can't wait until my subscription ends
  4. Thanks Tim; Regarding the engine in the kit, for some reason both AMT and Johan in the early years seem to have put more detail effort into the Olds engines than other brands. With the new kit's door panel details as you say, it would make life easier to adapt them to the 66 floor pan and add some detailing.
  5. Man, I can't wait to kit bash this with the 66 442 convert kit and see how everything fits. I am looking forward to modifying the door panels to the 64. Wow, another project!
  6. I can't believe Revell hasn't taken advantage of their 67 Camaro for a 68 version or their 71 442 for a 70 442 coupe, and how about a 70 Dart from their 68-69 kits. They quickly came out with the 69 Chevelle on the heals of their 68. Come on guys, fill in the voids with some easy conversions.
  7. I scratch built this Easy Run engine stand a few years ago and thinking about making another one with some improvements. Graveyard Carz inspired me to make one. I posted it on the forum a few years ago and got a reply from the owner of Easy Run warning me not to make these for sale without their expressed permission, which I had no intention to do so because it would be difficult to replicate in numbers. No worries though, it was made for my own pleasure.
  8. The AMT kit is old tooling with poor chassis detailing and the extended axle is toy like, but that is what we had as kids. They will still get 35 bucks for them. Round 2 needs to get serious about new technology kits like their current year Camaros. Give credit to Moebius and David for using their tooling to offer different variations so we have more selections. Something that Round 2 refuses to do...just saying.
  9. Boy, wouldn't it be great if Round 2 can cross the 66 442 tool with the 64 Cutlass for a more detailed kit, although most of us will kit bash anyway if need be. In any case, this is a long awaited kit to look forward to.
  10. I have a few pieces from Motor City and very happy with all. Although it took a while to get my last order, I am very satisfied and it was worth the wait. I just received the 60 Ford Fairlane 4 door which is flawless and the 63 Valiant Wagon I bought at NNL East. The resin is as smooth as plastic and hard to tell the difference. I guess you can say patience pays off. The Detroit guys know what they are doing....for sure!
  11. Agreed! It's always a pleasure to follow Steve's builds and my appreciation for his accuracy. Another beauty from Steve!
  12. It would be great to see this iconic Jeep in a detailed kit, but my cynical side say it makes too much sense. Round 2 is stuck on reissues after reissues of the same kits with new box art, but it's boring to see the same every two years. They art not a risk taking producer, and yes I understand the cost of making new tools but we have Moebius and JR Salvino, smaller companies that clearly understand the voids in our hobby. Hopefully we will see the day come when Round 2/ERTL took the risk and produced some new detailed subjects from the late 90's and early 2000, fantastic years for new tools. Revell, on the other hand is still feeling their way with the investors and have come up with the occasional new tool. Hopefully they will see the value in this segment of car modelling. Let's hope there is light for something off the beaten path. Trendsetter, I do like your rendering of the Wagoneer and hope it would inspire one of the kit companies.
  13. Just another blob of plastic for $35 bucks from Round 2. I would rather spend the money on a new kit with detail.
