    That is nice! Great job in accuracy so far. This is not an easy task to take on.

    Thanks for your comments, Dark Blue with blue interior is the way to go. Still need to decide on the Keystones or steel wheels with the dog dish caps.

    Thanks for your comments. Once I get around to building the 63, I'm trying to decide on a color combination and leaning towards a blue multi shade interior with dark blue body or the tan metallic color with matching tan multi interior.
    Thanks

    Getting closer to the finish line, here's a mock up with Keystones. The bumpers attach to the chassis with pins for positive location. Let me know what you think. Thanks

    63 Plymouth Savoy Super Stock Update
    Been working towards getting my 63 Ply SS ready to send to a resin casting co (a real good one) and hopefully we can get this one as a kit. The master parts are almost done, just need one more door panel and interior alignment with body and chassis. Got the grille, bumper and bumper filler with brackets done and the locate to the chassis for positive fit. Re-did the dash board and gauge panel because I did not like the first one I made. All separate pieces and made the speaker grille from an old P/E grill.
    Here are the latest parts.

    Jesse:
    Performance Detail Products made a 63 Galaxie PE set years ago but they have been out of business for several years. Your best bet is to keep an eye out on eBay. From what I remember it was a pretty complete set for a 63 Galaxie. I wish I would have bought it when it was available.

    Been working on my 62 Dodge Dart dashboard, needs a little more work but I think I'm getting close to where I want it. I bought Best Model Car Part's 63 Dodge Gauge decals and the speedo decal is just right for my modified 62 gauge panel. Need to find decals for the round dials.

    Steve, Just beautiful. You make an old JoHan look like a modern kit. Great job!
  9. BobbyG added a post in a topic 63 Plymouth Belvedere Super Stock   

    I worked on the dash board, gauge panel and used an old photo etch  grille to get the speaker grill close to accurate. Got the grill front splash pan and bumper done as well. This project is winding done and it will be ready soon for the resin casting. Your suggestions are welcome, thanks.

    Dr Jay:
    Absolutely beautiful. You're giving me inspiration to finish my 62 Max Wedge. My 63 Plymouth Savoy is almost ready to begin building after all the scratch parts I've been making but want to finish up the Dodge right after. I've behind on the forum updates and will try to get some pics posted over the weekend.

    Thanks Ben. I started with MPC's 69 442 cut down and used various  trim rings and rims for front and back. Drilled out the lug nuts and used M&R's resin acorn nuts. Working on getting these cast in resin.
  12. BobbyG added a post in a topic Revell 1984 Olds 442   

    I have been playing around with casting various factory Rallye wheels with and without trim rings and a couple of depths. I don't have the new Olds Hurst kit yet but I will see how mine resin wheels look. I'm working with a quality resin caster who is interested in my masters and hopefully will produce them

    Hey John:
    I did this engine a couple of years ago, but I think its a mix of Tamiya orange, they offer two shades and mixed them until I got it close. Hope that helps.
