    Agreed, the Rebel SST was a fine looking car and a good alternative to the Machine. Trickiest part of building one would be the crossbars on the grille. Modelhaus made a flat hood for this kit and the rest of the car is pretty straightforward.

    Thanks for getting this going again!

    Looking forward to this build. I would love to build the title car from Gran Torino. Decals might be a problem, though; I don't think anyone offers the correct ones.

    What color green would one suggest might be correct for the reissued TWR Jag? It looks like medium solid green but I'm not really sure. It could be metallic as well. It's definitely brighter than traditional British racing green.

    I just ordered a TWR Jag from HLJ yesterday and I got the notice today they've already shipped it, so they're live now.

    Great subject choice, I rescued a glue bomb one of these a while ago and they do build into impressive models.

    I built my Johan Rebel Machine with the engine from a Matador kit. It's more or less a drop in fit.
     
    I just used the kit chassis as it wasn't worth it for me to make substantial changes in that area.

    Looking for license plates, fire bottles
    Hi guys,
     
    I'm looking for a set or two of the chrome license plate backing plates you see in so many muscle car kits. You know, the chrome parts you glue or place the plate decal on. Amazingly a thorough search of my parts box didn't turn any up.
     
    I'm also looking for a few Nascar fire extinguisher bottles from any Revell Nascar kit, plus Nascar rear view mirrors as well. The new snap kits don't include them for some reason.
     
    If anyone can spare these I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

    You sir are a prince among men. You just saved me a lot of money because I might have purchased another kit for the hood. Thank you!

    Can't wait to see this one. That kit is the only 1/24 source for that particular hood shown on the box(there's a resin one in 1/25 out there); the reissues of this car in GTX trim had the scoop hood with I don't like as much aesthetically.
     
    Love the idea of this car with the vinyl roof. Looking forward to the work!

    Yes, the florescent yellow dries dead flat, like all florescent colors do, so I cleared it with Future and let it dry very, very thoroughly. Only after that did I mask off and paint the cowl and roof rails semi-gloss black.

    Paul Menard 2011 Brickyard winning Impala

     

     

     
    Paul Menard's winning car from the 2011 Brickyard 400. AMT COT Impala with a resin front air dam. Pactra flour. yellow paint, Patto's Place decals. I added bars to the roll cage, wired the ignition boxes and added a fuel line to the interior. The paint doesn't photo well, it's searingly bright in person.

    That is stunning work. It really looks like the cars I saw as a kid in the mid-80s.
