  1. I guess what I mean is they are different sizes. The Monte Carlo has a 116" wheelbase and is 213" long, the Cutlass (2 door) has a 112" wheelbase and is 207" long. I don't think that top is a direct swap. If you line it up with the windshield, it will probably extend too far onto the trunk area. Having said that, I will admit I've never tried it!
  2. My problem is the Monte Carlo is scaled so much larger than the Cutlass. It'll take an artist to get that top to look right on the (in 1/25 scale) much smaller Cutlass.
  3. Old AMT Lennie Pond kit part

    This need has been met. I no longer need the part.
  4. Old AMT Lennie Pond kit part

    I need the front bumper from the old AMT Lennie Pond Malibu or equivalent. Can't use the Laguna style, has to be the regular Chevelle style. I butchered mine, I figured out a different approach that will work, I just need a second chance. Thanks in advance.
  5. '65 Chevelles: AMT vs Revell

    This is the kit he used. The top fit well.
  6. '65 Chevelles: AMT vs Revell

    A friend of mine has made a 4 door '66 Bonneville using the 1/24 '64 GTO top. Ended up looking real nice.
  7. FINALLY somebody built one! Thanks for the kind words, I was always frustrated that those nice 1/20 Econolines were not 1/25. Nice Econoline but that building is off the hook!
  8. Pontiac Resin Bonanza!

    Cancel that. I see these are 1/24.
  9. Pontiac Resin Bonanza!

    Not to be too picky, but MPC put the door handles in the wrong place. Too high on the door. Not a deal breaker, though.
  10. '64 Pontiac Tempest wagon build thread

    I've done this conversion with an original '64 LeMans and a '65 Chevy wagon. Please note that the rear quarter tops slope down on the GTO. On the wagon they don't. I added a pie section to the middle of the rear quarter panel to raise the rear top portion up. Looking forward to following this one!
  11. You may be planning to do this anyway, but are you going to add the ribs to the roof? That smooth roof is kind of a major oversight. It's also strange that the kit gives you no interior door panels up front. Looks great so far though. I'd never heard of that drive system!
  12. Shout out to Tom Geiger! (NNL East)

    Couldn't say it any better. I've been saving pennies for some time now. This will be my 2nd NNL East.
  13. Big Rig Build Off Entry List 2019, Rules and Updates

    If anyone does have a problem with this, I won't be offended at all. The last thing I want to do is cause a problem. If this is disqualified, I have another option.
  14. Big Rig Build Off Entry List 2019, Rules and Updates

    I've been looking for a reason to finish this..I will be using kit parts for engine and frame. Does the cab have to be from a kit?
  15. 1968 Ford F 600

    This is the Missing Link cab built up. I mastered this one, and it has a few minor issues. The door handles on the real truck are old pull styles, not the flush pickup type like on this model. The dash is also from the previous generation on this size of truck (source it from Moebius Ford pickups). The dash for the AMT pickup is right for the pickup, but not this truck. I don't know when Kevin will start casting these again, I'm not aware of any damage to the master.
  16. Does this help? https://www.ebay.com/itm/1975-Dodge-Ram-Van/143035607483?hash=item214d9629bb:g:760AAOSwV3hb9Y7I:rk:5:pf:0&vxp=mtr Scroll down, lots of pictures.
  17. 1976/77 Ford Pickup Parts

    He wasn't at the Detroit show where I normally see him either. I'm not aware of any problems, but I believe he is moving his operation to another site. I'm not 100% sure about this, though.
  18. 1976/77 Ford Pickup Parts

    Morgan Automotive detail has the bed. It's not on their site, but E-mail them...it exists, I have four of them.
  19. AMT 1968 Mercury Cougar XR-7 GT, 390 4-speed.

    EVERY model has flaws. In this case, they must be extremely small flaws. I like them both!
  20. Revell 1968 Chevelle

    When I run into combative threads like this one, I usually just pass on participating. Since I'm nobody special, that's no great loss to the forum, but I know guys who could add so much to this forum,,,guys much more knowledgeable than I, and you'll never hear from them. It's really too bad. Civility, gentlemen...civility. I like models as much as the next guy, but if we're going to speak to/about each other like this, it's just not worth it. Reread the thread. Are we treating each other with respect?
  21. 1/25 AMT NYPD Chevy Police Van

    Once you get the roof ribs on, you'll have to make inner door panels for the cab area. The kit has no inner door panels at all.
  22. '73 Camaro (Replica)

    Very nice. It really reflects all the effort you put in to get it right. You must really enjoy the real car!
  23. 1978 Chevy Nova 4dr POLICE

    Is there any difference between the 1977 and 1978 Novas?
  24. I hear you. I'm an oldster too. I have some mobility issues, and sometimes I just don't feel like modeling. An hour at the bench is an hour away from my wife, and that also bothers me. It always takes me months, sometimes years to get things done, so believe me when I say I'm in no hurry. I'm sure it will be worth the wait. Looking forward to the Nova as well. Thanks for getting back with me on this, I wish you and Greg the best! By the way, I usually don't build anything newer than model year 1977, but this is so cool I'm making an exception.
  25. I believe I should be on your list. If not, count me in.
