  1. boss 302 mustang added a post in a topic AMT 63 Vette fact   

    The reissue body is not the same as the original.  The original hardtop (which was also in one of the fastback reissues) does not fit correctly.
  2. boss 302 mustang added a post in a topic looking for a generator...   

    Don Mills Models makes one
  3. boss 302 mustang added a post in a topic The First 1965 Mustang 427 SOHC - Dick Brannan   

    The torsion bar setup was not used to reduce weight, but rather to enable the engine to fit.  NHRA FX rules did not permit a tubular subframe and never did....factory chassis had to be used
  4. boss 302 mustang added a post in a topic has anyone ever scratch built a funny car starter?   

    The AMT Nitro Charger had a Jim Davis starter in it.  Try using a diesel truck starter and adding a handle.

    Uh.........I was talking about building kits.........making do with what you have to work with.......which is what a real modeler does
  6. boss 302 mustang added a post in a topic Some more Round2 surprizes!   

    If you're a real modeler, you should be able to come up with something good out of anything........detail paint a flat pan chassis or just paint it flat black if you want......the old annuals can come out really nice with a little effort.   There's no reason that every kit has to have a high part count.....these guys need to use their imagination and work with what they have
    I like to get old builts, gluebombs, even, and try to rebuild......I don't need 150 part kits to make me happy.......but I have been a builder since like 1962

    You can't just take stuff from one tool and put it in another
  8. boss 302 mustang added a post in a topic '66 Barracuda "Hemi Under Glass" --To be cont'd......   

    You do realize that this kit is not really a Hemi Under Glass, but rather Tom McEwen's Plymouth Dealers car with Hemi Under Glass decals.  The real Hemi Under Glass kits are much different.

    The hemisphere kit is the AMT Don Garlits Wynn's Jammer.

    Try using the Revell XKE Jaguar hardtop on the AMT 289 Cobra
  11. boss 302 mustang added a post in a topic Fenderwell Headers in Resin?   

    MCW has the old Jo-Han 426 wedge fenderwell headers in resin and also Chevy fenderwell headers
  12. boss 302 mustang added a post in a topic AMT Chezoom Corvair Funny Car   

    Radius rods are not used with a 2 leaf spring front axle.......they are used with a single buggy spring front axle.......so the kit is accurate in that respect. And please remember this is a circa 1966 kit.....this is what we got in those days
  13. boss 302 mustang added a post in a topic 1/25 AMT '69 Cougar Eliminator   

    At one time, this kit had the MPC 428 in it and was labeled Cougar 428CJ.....I believe the engine was later used in the '73 Cougar
  14. boss 302 mustang added a post in a topic History of AMT & MPC's Action Line Pickup Kits   

    I believe that the '67 decals have been discussed in the past over on the Spotlight board and the Kevorkian Bros service station information is accurate as it was a real service station.
  15. boss 302 mustang added a post in a topic Lindberg's '64 Plymouth "Lawman"   

    Most of the '64 wedge cars were hardtops...the sedans were A990 hemi cars
