  1. 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++++ !
  2. Four-door 'Cuda

    Pat, Way too cool. Nicely done and keep it going!
  3. An accurate 69 Cuda

    Thanks to all for your comments. Thanks Bill, coming from you, I really appreciate your comments and any suggestions you have. This project was halted for quite a while, we had 3 moves in 5 years, now that we are in our new home, I can resume some work on my Mopars I want to get done, which includes my 63 Ply Savoy SS and 62 Dodge Dart Ramcharger. All are detailed and made the same as the Cuda. The Duster's chassis was a shoe-in, not much modifying, just the rear edge to same it to the Cuda's. I used the Duster's door panels for the Cuda's, one thing that was missing from the Cuda kit was the rear quarter panels rise to the rear window, on the deluxe interior, this would be carpeted. I've always felt that AMT/MPC Cuda's were great while we were growing up, but with what we have today, they are sub-par and deserve better. I am talking with someone who does 3D art to create the 69 Cuda grilles and taillight panel. So stay tuned. The body is complete and polished for casting as well. I have cutouts for the front and rear side marker lights that will be cast in clear resin. I agree with you about the 69 Firebird as MPC did not get it right, the body is too chunky above all in my opinion. I'm sure the MPC tail panel and front grille can be surgically removed and made to fit Revell's 69 Camaro. The door panels can be modified to the Firebird's, either standard or deluxe depending on the Camaro kit you use. Hopefully Revell will find its way to new ownership and we can get new blood to drive for obvious modified reissues, makes so much sense especially with the technology we have. I don't want to get started on what Round2 and Revell can do...that's another topic! See you at the NNL.
  4. An accurate 69 Cuda

    Thanks everyone for your comments and inspiration. I can't wait to get this done. Since this morning, I found someone who can do take a crack at the 3D grille/headlight buckets and taillight panel. So I will keep everyone posted. Now I need to find someone willing to make some P/E pieces so this project can knock the ball out of the park. BTW, the 440 engine out of Revell's 69 Charger is the choice for the Cuda engine. I have to complete the seats, console and dash (the console and dash are from Revell's 69 Dart). I know Keith Marks offers the correct decals as well. Thanks again.
  5. An accurate 69 Cuda

    It's been a while since I have worked on my projects because of a couple of home moves in the last couple of years, but it's time to get back in the grove and finish up on some MOPAR projects. So here is my 69 Cuda that I have spent a lot of time correcting the trim, grills, interior all to mount on AMT's 71 Duster chassis. My original plan was to use this as a master for a resin model but I have the urge to build it. I have the side marker light opening so I can cast the lens in clear resin. I am trying to hook up with someone to make the grill in 3D as well as the taillight panel. Fireball's excellent Cuda hood scoops will work well for the project. Let me know what you think.
  6. The Little Rod - A Monogram "Never Was"

    Bob, beautiful build, always loved those old Monogram rod kits. Great display too, I thought is was a real kit from years past. I just hope once Revell's change of ownership is complete that they will bring out the old Little T!
  7. 68 GTX grille

    Rico: I just received the 68 RR and GTX grills, all I can say is WOW! The detail is spot on and now I can't wait for the other Mopar RR/GTX pieces to come. Great product.
  8. 68 GTX grille

    Rico, they are a huge improvement over the kit's and they look fantastic!!! Let us know when you are ready to sell them. Hopefully we will see the 69' grills as well. Thanks
  9. '69 Revell Nova....

    Beautiful work as usual Marco> Do you have the keys for a demo ride?
  10. 68 GTX grille

    Yes!!
  11. 68 GTX grille

    Yes. let me know how much for each grill. Thanks
  12. 68 GTX grille

    Rico, count me in for both grills when you are ready to sell. Are you thinking about doing a 69 GTX grill?
  13. Aluminum Moon Fuel Tank

    Jim: Check into JDS Racing Products, the owner is Joe Cardoza. He makes milled slot cars parts and if you check him out on FB. He makes slot cars that are fully detailed that you would be hard pressed to see they are not regular models. He has a couple of size aluminum Moon tanks and makes some killer injector stacks with the tops anodized in a couple colors. His website is down for modifications (www.jdsracing.com) but you can probably reach him on his FB page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/435553483225995/. Here are some pics...
  14. Round 2's new release 75 Datsun pickup has a nice set of pad printed Goodrich Radial T/As. They are their normal hollow low profile tires but at least is the right brand tires. Missing link has the correct depth chrome Rallye wheels that I mastered and they fit these tires well. They should be available.
