  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. Agreed! It's always a pleasure to follow Steve's builds and my appreciation for his accuracy. Another beauty from Steve!
  5. 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.
  6. Just another blob of plastic for $35 bucks from Round 2. I would rather spend the money on a new kit with detail.
  7. Beautiful build! You have the correct wheel stance as well. Great job with an old kit that always had a soft spot for me.
  8. Tom, your Mopar builds are beautiful and very accurate. I appreciate them as I am an avid fan of Mopars having owned a couple restored 1:1. I look forward to seeing your builds and as soon as we settle in our new home, I will get my 63 Savoy Max Wedge and 62 Dart Ramcharger done. Thanks for the inspiration.
  9. Beautifully done, Tom. Gotta love MOPARS!
  10. Thanks Tom, I can't wait see how you progress, your 63 is coming along great. Once my 63 is done, I will start working on my 62 Plymouth wagon, but there is a lot to do and I am just scratching the surface on this project.
  11. Tom, your 63 looks great, you are inspiring me to finish my 63 Savoy Max Wedge, here are some pics. Too many moves in the last few years have put off some of my model projects. Glad to see you are using the Missing Link manifolds that I created for Kevin a few of years ago. I have been contemplating sending the body and parts to Kevin to cast as a resin kit, so I may have to dust off my project and finish it. Thanks for the inspiration.
  12. Awesome Alan! Been waiting a long time for these decals. Thank you
  13. No problem Steve. The Lindberg block is not bad and is a good basis for a 426 wedge. Because I'm a MOPAR nut, I get a little carried away with detail. Your Fury is looking great like your other projects. I love your builds! Can't wait to see it finished!
  14. Steve: Here is the wedge cross ram manifold I mastered for Missing Link. Dan is correct, I used the heads and valve covers from the Tony Nancy kit wedge engine as they are correct,as you can see in the pictures. Fireball"s Carter AFBs are perfect for this combination!. Kevin has the manifolds available. BTW, I also made a Hemi cross ram available from Kevin as well. The engine block is from Revell"s 69 Charger. Good luck.
  15. Tom, Check out Rico Radenz's Shapeways parts, he has 68 and 69 RR, GTX Satellites 3 d grilles that are beautiful. https://www.shapeways.com/shops/ra-sti-acute-s-scale-accessories
