Oh yeah! Thanks for reminding us about Keith's Cyclone decals! I have got to build one of these street Cyclones soon I made a race version of Benny Parsons' Merc a few months ago using a reissue MPC race kit and a Polar Lights Talladega chassis.
Apologies on my wonky wheel comment. I did not realize they were a representation of a hubcap, to me they looked like an open wheel that was too shallow. I vaguely remember seeing "open wheel" hubcaps on cars back in the day. Overall, Moebius is making some great kits of some great subjects and doing them well. I just bought a 54 Hudson Hornet Special, another cool kit. Looking forward to every kit you're coming up with, never a poor subject and all have multiple possibilities. Keep them coming!
Out of the 3 years of the original style Charger, the 70 is my least favorite. For anyone wanting to make a stock 70 Charger using parts from the 68 and 69 kits that will work with the exception of the hood. If this new tool 70 comes with a big hole in the hood, the hood from the 68 and 69 may physically fit but they are different than the 70 hood. The recessed scallops are wider on the 70 Charger than the 68/69. I cannot for the life of me see why the kit makers think the movie/TV cars are "fantastic", I avoid them as much as possible.
Really nice job on the Black Widow. I built the same one about 6 months ago and had a fun time with it. I also did the exhaust through the frame, modded the front seat and used the PPP tires and wheels. Love those old Chevy's. Yours came out really super nice
Home from the DSC. early, I'm afraid I will have to get a report later on the winners. Really great to see everyone and all the great builds on the tables. There were some real beauties. Always a pleasure to see all the enthusiastic folks and see their latest creations. I had the opportunity to meet some board members that I didn't know, the name tags really were a great idea and looked very nice. When I got home there was a great new Lance Seller's 1966 A.J. Foyt Lotus 38 Indy car kit in my mailbox. Resin and very well done. Looking forward to the challenge. So, other than feeling like I a ran a marathon today, it was an outstanding day. Thank you to all my fellow Cactus Car Modelers for putting on a super contest and swap meet. Danno did a stellar job organizing and making this all happen, along with our other club members. A fun day!!
