  1. Boy, I really spurred this conversation on!!! 

    BTW, I bought Dave's Imperial,;71 T-bird, "71 Buick and a bunch more of his other kits.  I also buy every Jo-Han kit I see that I don't have (if I can afford it!).  I like wire axle kits.  I'd love to see the roadster chassis accessory parts pack reissued,  So I'm not against reissuing these Mopars.....  Like I said originally, I would buy several of them myself!  

  2. Who would buy these except the lunatic fringe?  I don;t think they have the drawing power for sales to have Revell replace the missing tools.  

    BTW I would definitely buy the Lancer to build the Dragmaster "Golden Lancer" A/FX car , the Plymouth to build as an S/SA car and the Valiant as I had that kit at one time.  I'm sure Tom Geiger would be in for at least a case of Valiants too!!

  3. The engine parts packs that were reissued did not sell.  As a result, Revell, which had been considering reissuing the motorcycle parts packs, said forget about it.  I would think that management would be thinking about that in regards to doing anything with any other thing to do with the parts packs and those double kits, which probably would not sell except to old-time members of the lunatic fringe.  There were also rumors back in the day that some of the parts pack tools may have gone to Japan.....and could be lost like the old IMC tools like the Lola T-70 that went to Union.  

    And before you flame, I would buy the double kits myself.....I had the Fiat/Thunder Charger kit as a kid.  But I've also accumulated enough stuff to build the Bantam, Fiat , T-bucket, and Mooneyes from existing kits and parts packs.

  4. The Altered States Models shorty fed body is the right width for this chassis but needs to be cut down to work as it is too long.  Also a top gas car would not have been running 426 hemis as the eliminator was gone after like 1971 I believe.....I think the only guy who ran one was Jim Minnick in a single engine car that was way shorter than this chassis.  I plan to build one using 2 of the 426 wedges from the Tony Nancy 22jr kits ......2 392 hemis are what is really appropriate though.  Not enough money in Top Gas for the late hemis to be affordable.

    I love old school drag racing corvettes. You have done some  amazing work. Looking forward to more progress. Also i’m not sure if you have seen this picture but it is a fibreglass Corvette with a Chevy 409 in it. I found it on George Klass remembers website under modified sports cars. As you have stated and as the caption states  these bodies were not always accurate replicas.5E5B389B-1BBC-41E9-9345-05BC529C9CC8.jpeg.71a43e7e9b63da590af8c319a2b844d8.jpeg

    A Devin was in no way intended to be a replica of a Corvette.

    Yeah, watch those "rare, vintage" kit prices nosedive like a kamikaze. :D

    I'm crossing my fingers that Atlantis was able to acquire the molds for the '62 Dodge Dart 440, Dodge Lancer GT, Chrysler Newport Convertible, Valiant V-200, Imperial Crown and Plymouth Fury. Metalflake  (cool retro feature), gray, tan or white styrene re-issues won't matter. Since the early Johan and AMT MoPars will never be rereleased, the Revell kits are the next best thing.

    I believe there is an issue where the tools for the tires and/or glass are missing from the '62 annuals which is why Revell was never able to do anything with them.  If I remember correctly, those kits used an odd tire.
