      More Maintenance   07/19/2018

      We're in for some more maintenance tonight. I'll probably take the board offline for about 20 minutes or so after 9 PM PST.

  1. The Ford Service Truck and the other planned 65-66 Ford F-100 kits are going to be a knock out for Moebius! Can't wait to get these. Love that Moebius is always thinking outside the box and getting better quality and subjects.
  2. Revell '69 Boss 302 Mustang

    I would hope Revell would see it fit to make available a nose piece as a separate retrofit for the old kits we have lying around.
  3. An accurate 69 Cuda

    Jason, I probably will get back on track after the holidays, Rico is working on a more accurate taillight and trunk panel that I asked him to design. The fit of the grille is spot on. I sent him an extra body to size up everything. I have to finalize some interior details and final fit for everything. Still pondering if I should send the body and interior out to a resin caster since I think the body interior is more accurate and I know people will want this since it's been a long overlooked kit. I could use another copy to make a Sox & Martin version. Thanks for sparking the interest on this project. Happy holidays,

    Ditto on that! Great to deal with and amazing pieces.
  5. Tamiya Fair 2018

    I have been hoping Tamiya (or Fujimi) would decide to doing a full detail Ferrari 330 GTS, one of the most beautiful Ferrari designs. I would look great to next their M-B 300 SL and fit into that group. Since they have done so many Ferraris, I am sure licensing would not be an issue. I keep hoping and think this would a be huge selling kit.
  6. Hi Andrew: I just checked out your EASY Run website and now I understand your concern. Just so you know, I built the engine stand out of appreciation for it and that I follow Graveyard Cars. There is absolutely no intention to market what I created and was meant as a void to building something different. I am however, hopeful you take this as compliment to your equipment and appreciate that someone has gone through great lengths to create the engine stand in scale.
  7. I hope so Lloyd, you never know when someone is serious. If it is a compliment, I'll take it. Thanks
  8. Andrew, I am a little confused and don't know what you are talking about...do you mind elaborating on what patent you are talking about? Are you the owner of Easy Run? I made this representation of the Easy Run stand because I follow Graveyard Cars and thought it would be a cool break to do something different...in other words, I made this for myself. If you are referring to making copies, several people have asked, however I do not have the means to do so and it would be difficult for me to copy the details. I am hopeful this addresses your concerns. If not, feel free to express otherwise. Thanks for looking.
  9. An accurate 69 Cuda

    Jason, I have been toying with the idea to have a top resin caster use my Cuda as a master, but it would only prolong completing it plus the time and risk for all the work I put into it to make it as accurate as possible. Let's see what happens when I talk to a couple of casters. It will be up to Rico to make the 68 grille, hood, grille header panel and taillight conversions if there is a call for it down the road, to answer your question for the 68 Hemi Super Stock.

    Rusty, Here is the link from this forum under Aftermarket/Resin, topic is 68 GTX Grills and is the thread that Rico has posted to with his awesome 68/69 Road Runner and GTX grilles. The Cuda grille is the first run that I ordered so I could test fit it for my Cuda project. I do not believe these are ready yet, but I understand will be soon. Here is Rico's Shapeways store site: https://www.shapeways.com/shops/ra-sti-acute -s-scale-accessories Enjoy
  11. An accurate 69 Cuda

    I just received my "test shot" Cuda grille from Rico, WOW!!!!. It fits like a glove with no modifications required and just looks right. The depth of the grille, the mesh and the signal lights are correct. I asked Rico if he could design and produce this grille and he came through. Now, I can't wait for the taillight/panel so I can finish this project. BTW, I had no problem using the Duster chassis as the wheel base matches the body and the only modification was some minor trimming at the rear. I did add a tab at the back edge and a slot in the body to lock in the chassis as if was designed in the kit. Rico does outstanding work and he is filling a void for us using his talent! Thanks Rico!

    Rico looking good. Glad to see this will finally move my 69 Cuda project along. Can't wait to see the finished pieces. Thanks for working on my request for us.
  13. 66 Country Squire

    Holy moly, beautiful! Are they available yet?
  14. Fireball Modelworks

    Just received my order from Joseph on some of his newest items, the Olds SSII wheels, 67 Camaro Dog Dish and Steel wheels and latest tires...superb. Joseph's products keep getting better and he picks great pieces to make that we have been looking for. The shipping was fast and exceeded expectations. I highly recommend his products and if you have never ordered from Fireball, you are missing out of the best resin, rubber tires and 3D products available. I give Fireball a AAAA++++ !
