    Have lathe, will travel?  When I go somewhere I like to bring extra socks and drawers. Never thought about a lathe. At least you have it with because the pulleys and belts on that kit are really bad. Like you said "you will the only one who will know" and that's all that matters. Gary

    Great build. Nice to see one that has been brought to the mid to late '70's. Nice color and enough detail to be pleasing and not over the top. I hope when I do mine, it turns out as well. Gary

    Two things that make want to leave someone bleeding by the side of the road. No one seems to know or understand what a stop sign means and what a safe distance to give the car in front of you. Almost got t-boned twice on the way home today( it's a 15 minute drive). If you have to be so close to me and have to get in front leave the house 5 minutes earlier.

    Nicely done. A lot of detail in a small package. To bad my eyes are so bad that I could not tackle some thing like this. Gary

    Harry....Harry....Harry  You are building  a car that I built about 20 years ago. As for the material that you thread the wheels with, mine look as good as the day I finished them. This is a car that was built way before any thought of doing research on the car itself was any consideration on my part. While yours will make mine look like it was built by someone of lesser skills(and it was),I still have visions or nightmares of lacing those wheels. All in all it was fun. Gary

    Well, it's seems like I opened a huge can of worms for myself. I was aware of the height or lack thereof on the bodies of the by the two manufacturers. At the time these were made that's what everyone wanted and the look so good that way. Like I said I have built may this way. Now it would be nice to see the true stocker and that's what I want to do. Can you suggest any books or websites to look at for more info?  As far as the kits, I probably use one or two as a base  and work the magic with other mediums. I don't have an problem working out tech issues.(I was a toolmaker for 30 years). Thanks for the info and will read and listen to it all.

    I guess that I was pretty vague when I asked the question. I work overnights and was just out of bed when I asked. I agree that the '32's from Amt are good. I've built several. As for what I want, I would really would like the roadster. But any body style would work. I have not done anything with diecast although that could be an option. Thank you for your input. Gary
