      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    I just got done building this, the box art shows thin whitewall tires, but the kit only has blackwalls. The box art car also shows (on the side) an air cleaner that's not included in the kit.
     
    Didn't really bother me (although whitewalls would have been nice) since I almost never open the hoods on my builds, but thought I'd mention it.

    That looks really great!

    OK carman1 has chosen his kits from me, and he'll post his for offer soon. Thanks!

    I have 5 kits up for offer. No interest?
     
    Tell you what, pick 2 kits for the PIF and you get them both.

    I've used these a ton and they work great. Highly recommended.

    Added a couple of more kits for the offering.

    All are complete. These are stock images but an accurate representation of the kits I have for offer.

    I will take the '67 Charger please. Mine will be up soon.

    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.
  15. Merkur XR4Ti added a post in a topic Resin 69 AMC Rebel   

    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.
