  1. Bill J added a post in a topic Next Meng Kit Announced - How About a Jeep?   

    Since I own a 4 door Wrangler I would really love a kit but not interested in a 2 door version, I am sure someone is though. I seldom see a 2 door JK on the street, mostly 4 doors. More practical.
  2. Bill J added a post in a topic ^^ Mercury Comet   

    Thanks for that Greg, that is an earlier Comer, 54 maybe. I am looking for a 66 which looks like a 66 Fairlane somewhat.
  3. Bill J added a post in a topic The new HRM Chaparral 2   

    at first thought I was a little disappointed, but after seeing the price and thinking about how I never get much done, this Chaparral kit may be a perfect one for me. A little paint and decaling can make a really nice shelf model I am thinking.

    I saw that, thank you. I need the body too and apparently no one casts a 66 any more. I'll keep looking for an affordable one. Thanks again

    Looking forward to the correct A/FX Comet and particularly a well done 427 SOHC engine. Great work Dave

    The two in the center are a 32 Ford Sedan, the white one with the black fenders and the all yellow convertible below it is a 36 Ford Roadster, both were AMT kits. Afraid I don't know anything about the other 2. Hope that helps some

    Nice T'Bolt and great pictures too. Always liked the Thunderbolts and hard to beat a Canon or Nikon for pictures
  9. Bill J added a post in a topic Ford GT-40 Mark II #98   

    Really great looking, excellent work. On side note, the HRM GT40 engine is a small block Ford with Westlake heads and 4 weber carbs. It was made for the GT 40 MkI kit of the 1968 and 69 LeMans cars. The MK II GT40 had a Ford big block 427 with a Holley carb.  After 1967 the rules changed outlawing the big blocks which is why the 68 and 69 cars had small block engines and they went back to the lighter chassis MKI.

    Sweet Galaxie. Always liked the 61-64 Galaxies. Rare to see such a nicely done 62 in model form.
