    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.

    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.

    I have made an accurate cross ram for the wedge engines and cast them in resin. I put the correct frees plugs and bolts molded in IF is get time I will cast some and if you are interested, I will sell some although I am not in the business.

    Thanks Tim, you are absolutely right! I am a believer you don't comment until you actually have the kit in your hands!

    I have these hubcaps that were casted in resin, but I have them for a while and forgot where they came from. I will using them on my 63 Plymouth Savoy.

    Nice work Jason, now I have to finish mine up. What color combination are you shooting for? By the I have mastered a correct wedge cross ram manifold if you are interested I can cast one for you.

    BTW, Scale Equipment used my original masters for some of their wheels.

    I have been working on various wheels to better detail paint them and mix-match rims and trim rings...here are the Magnum 500 wheels I have casted in resin as separate components. This way I can have Magnums with trim rings and exposed rims to chrome.

    I'm with you Nick. What everyone is failing to mention is that the JoHan bodies were very well proportioned and had great detail, among the best of their time.

    Thanks Tim, Bob and Dr Jay.
    I am hoping to get this one done in time for the NNL East. I'm using the Lindberg chassis but I corrected the shock mounts in the engine compartment with the prototypical correct style. The chassis had to be shortened about 3/16 and the door panels have been scribed to match the actual plain Jane interior. I may take a chance to draw up the dash gauge panel, speaker grill and scripts for photo etching, that will be tricky though. I mastered a wedge cross ram manifold to be more accurate that has the correct plugs and surface features and cast it in resin. I haven't decided on the colors yet but leaning to white with a blue interior.

    I'm working on a 62 Dart Super Stock with full detail as well.  Here is the dash and side panel I scribed. I included the body as well working it as a master to hopefully have it casted for resin.
