      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    That sux Joseph. I know you put a lot of effort into your carbs and all of your goodies and to have them ripped off is unforgiveable. I know this sort of thing happens a lot with decals and other items.. If I can prevent anyone from buying his copies I will definitely do so. He is on ,my TP list!
  2. Bill J added a post in a topic Revell 1965 Chevelle Malibu SS 396 Z-16 Option   

    Your Chevelle looks perfect. Very nicely done. The 65 has always been the Chevelle I like most of the breed.

    Looking very good so far. Always liked that Impala and the Revell kit is excellent, I wish all their kits were that good.

    Your two door sedan looks great, I agree that the wheels add a nice touch too. One thing that the kit really has wrong is the windshield wipers. On a 40 the wipers are at the bottom, like the kit and on a 39 the wipers are at the top of the windshield. A few trim pieces vary also. I always look at the wipers to determine a 39 Deluxe from a 40 Standard.

    Ron, not sure it matters much but the 428 is a FE Ford engine and the Cyclones had 385 Ford engines, like the 429 and 460. You could use a 351 small block. I don't think that the FE (332-428) was available in the 70-71 Cyclones.

    Fireball, as Pat said. By far the most accurate and realistic Holley's, and AFB carbs. Super nice to deal with too.

    Phone call has always worked for me.
  8. Bill J added a post in a topic Resin Realm... Closing up Shop...!!!   

    Just ordered a kit a few months ago, great guy to deal with, I am sure RR will be greatly missed. I better look to see if there is something I need ASAP.

    Joseph also is working on some wheels and tires specifically for the Revell Bronco. Should be great. The kits wheels are way undersized, like maybe a 13 inch wheel. It will be nice to have some more options available. I ordered my fender flares today also

    Yessir, Joseph is the best!  Thanks for letting me know about Joseph having the Bronco flares, I will order some ASAP!

    Missing Link Resin makes a 70 and 71 Cyclone street stock kit. Come with all correct interior parts, bumpers, grilles and really nice body. You have to have a Revell 70 Torino kit for the chassis, engine and chassis parts. It take a little work but would be a perfect street Cyclone, Keith Marks makes decals for both years also.

  12. Bill J added a post in a topic Revell Reissued 57 Chevy Black Widow wrong body ?   

    Too bad they shipped the wrong body in the BW kit. It would be nice if they'd throw a Bel-Air back seat in the Black Widow kit. I doubt many 150 sedans were sold without a back seat. It was like a $9 option IRL, I think.

    Mark,
    Nice work! Always a pleasure to watch your problem solving skills. Looking forward to everything coming together
  14. Bill J added a post in a topic FAB Resinworks Carbs   

    You guys really need to order some of Joseph's carbs from FIreball Modelworks. By far the nicest, most accurate and most detailed model carbs I have ever seen. They are plastic also, not resin.

    Thanks for the heads up, ordered some fender flares
