  1. regular guy added a post in a topic AMT Piranha Spy Car question   

    Modelcar builders
    an online hobby store has this in the description:
    'Build your choice of stock, custom or drag versions.'
    I think the solution is:
    order your kit to your spec's
    they could call it the 'Professional Modeler Series'

    Model Car Builders
    thanks for the responses
    I would have liked vintage box (early 60's) with the picture of the Ala Kart on it and the Ala Kart parts
    but unless AMT starts a custom order kit department that's probably not going to happen
    custom orders:choose your box and choose your parts
    thx

    mr route 66

    i feel like i'm telling you their is no Easter bunny.

    the AMT Hippie Hemi and it's sister model the

    Digger 'Cuda probably never existed in real life.

    so, no i don't think they would produce a new chassis

    for the Hippie Hemi.

    this was the height of the model companies power and

    they felt they could make models that they created.

    that's why the kits are pretty darn interesting.

    have a nice day!

    AMT Hippie Hemi AMT 605 Mini Review
    modeler's

    Fact Sheet:

    Copyright: 2008 Round 2 LLC

    Color Molded In: White

    Number of Parts: N/A

    Versions or Ways To Build In This Reissue:1 stock

    i got this about a year ago to have a 'complete set'

    Hippie Hemi and Digger 'Cuda dragster's.

    i guess you could include Infini-T and Stingaree but

    those are a little different.

    the one surprise was the 'clear' oil pan.

    the windows come in 3 colors of clear, well

    so do the oil pans!

    AMT gets smart points for that, once you have them running

    through production might as well make some neat features.

    the frame is an excellent example of the frame that came

    after the Dragmaster 4 tube type.

    kit is very well done!

    have a nice day!

    2000

    that rebel racer jpg. looks ok to me.

    i was saying that one of them was SMALL.

    you can go to any online model shop and see them.

    skip

    that was a big accomplishment back then.

    up to then some of the kits, cars boats airplanes

    would just look generally like what they were

    supposed to be.

    you can build all 4 and make a little oval track diorama!

    have a nice day!
  11. regular guy added a post in a topic AMT Studebaker Avanti   

    better model builders

    the Avanti was designed by Raymond Loewy.

    he also designed the '53 Starlite coupe.

    he ranks up there with Virgil Exner at Chrysler and

    Brooks Stevens who designed the Excalibur and was

    an industrial designer with many product designs that

    became iconic in 40's and 50's America.

    the Avanti's one interesting feature was a Paxton

    supercharger.

    be interesting to see if that's included in kit

    have a nice day!

    mike modeler

    this is from Model Car Roundup's site.

    'Part of a Dirtrack Racecars, Inc. Limited Production Series of Vintage Lindberg Super Modifieds from the 1960's.'

    i think the 'Super' part is a little off.

    being it's a DTRC production of a Lindberg kit,

    my statements about Lindberg quality are N/A here.

    don't know what DTRC quality is like.

    these look like fun little kits.

    have a nice day!

    mr most

    these are different.

    they're four individual kit's that just

    appeared on Megahobby and a couple other places.

    here's pic's of other three.

    the quality of my other Lindberg kits has been A1.

    i guess you're talking about lack of detail.

    i don't think they're supposed to precision kits for advanced builders.

    that's the new White Lightning that came out kind of small.

    have a nice day!

    better modeler's

    saw these at Megahobby.

    http://www.megahobby...6&page=2&sort=1

    they're near bottom of page.

    they are not on Lindberg's official site, so who's putting them out?

    that's great using original box art!

    be interesting to see what the actual kit's are like inside.

    here's pic of one, there's 3 more versions available.

    have a nice day!

    AMT Studebaker Avanti
    better model builders

    here's link to Round2

    http://www.round2models.com/models/amt/63studebaker-avanti/amt780-01

    now, that's interesting!

    somebody knows there classic cars over there.

    plus it's a 3 in 1.

    Stock, Custom and Race. those are the best AMT kits.

    in this case it's a Salt Flats race which wouldn't be my first choice.

    it can be worked around to road race or dragstrip.

    Have A Nice Day!
