  1. ' They are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT KITS. ' Third time somebody has said that. HOW HOW HOW are they different? Besides being different brands. Let's say the one in this box is a stock build.(it will be here in an hour or two) How is the MPC different please? I looked and the MPC 57 Corvettes on Ebay look more or less like AMT Street Machine.AMT has snorkel hood(looks lame) and MPC has just the opening .
  2. ' 2 completely different kits ' What makes them different? Looked at AMT kits while I'm waiting and AMT has 'stamped steel' full wheelcovers. There was also a lot of Sreet Machine versions. I don't think that is in this package.

    ' "Car Kit News" That sounds fair too. We will improve ourselves. Wait a minute.Title did not say whether it was news or a review! Fixed title anyhow. They could have made this kit 'All original parts restored'. SEEMS to be missing the horizontal quads. Probably some other parts too. Hello AMT! Nest time create the missing parts please.
  4. AMT 57 Ford Hardtop News

    Thanks! Okay.Sounds fair. Will work on accuracy.

    ' To review something you should have one in your possession.' Why? Is it going to be somehow different than two or three we do get a year? That was three posts to get to your point. No more.You just go on without me.

    Beats me. Once again I think I see where you're headed. Could you do me a big favor? Just say what you want one time please.

    Sooo.Bobthehobbyguy.What are you talking about now? Do I want to know what you're talking about? Will it make my life fuller and more rewarding? Let's see.

    ' You may have "worked hard" on your 'review'' What's up with that? Here's what I said. ' Back then they worked hard to get that $1.99 out of customer.' Somebody brought up the Revell version that looked like a stock car.As I remember it. Okay.This AMT has a drag or gasser version. Anybody turned an AMT into a stock car? I better put AMT '57 Ford in here.There! Ford would have to wait until '58 for the new generation engines.
  9. ' Ebay photo looks like the prior version' That is from listing we bought today. No! AMT will never bring back 3 complete kits. ' the MPC '57, not the AMT' How does that make a difference? This says it has about 110 parts so it is no MPC '60 6in1.Kinda figure that.
  10. Casey 5 star answer! Thank you. Brown! Wow! Oh goodie! First kit for us in anything except white and grey.AMT wise. Comparing this 3 complete kit to Chevy version. Yeah.The Chevy has 145 parts each kit. Just got the Corvettes this time around. Does the '63 have an engine stand for extra V8 engine? We're putting the 427 in.
  11. ' Look here' That proboard looks like some serious modelers over there. Thanks for that link. Could somebody say in regular words what the other 30 or so parts are please? Look like cool Kelsey Hayes wheels for one. What color plastic are these 3 cars in this kit molded in? Grey, grey and grey would be nice.
  12. ' I believe they have to be painted ' Oh no Mr Bill!' That's okay. What are the 30 some extra parts for the '53? Guy in Manhattan Beach used to thrash one of these back and forth to work in the 80's.
  13. This kit is on the way to us.Cost the same as one kit from Hobblinc.Go figure. Anybody know? Do you get two sets of whitewalls or just one and you are supposed to put 'em on one model? Are the whitewall inserts or on the tire? Thanks!

    ' The Flashback reissue retains the vertical quad housings. ' That is very cool of AMT to dig that up. Check out the 'Edsel inspired' custom car grill. Not too shabby. Betcha most builder's today avoid those parts like the plague. List them on Ebay for $5.99

    ' There was never any optional hood in the Ford kit ' Looks like a Styline hood to me./The purple car on the left. If that is all done with the front clip and the hood is stock 'Well.Excuse me!' I don't live on the Planet Perfectus. Plus it says 'steerable' wheels.Yeah.They probably mean 'posable'. But that was pre 'Smart phone' Exact Brainitis.If it not a 1 for 1 matchup 'Duh!? What do you mean?'
