      Unfortunately, we were unable to upgrade the board software due to some technical difficulties. We will try again once we get the problems worked out.

    If they have the 68 Coronet body couldn't they swap in the 68 Roadrunner/69 GTX chassis like they did with the 70 Coronet? It wouldn't be a new kit but would get the 68 back in circulation.

    Man, I am disappointed this doesn't have both sets of wheels and has those sad tires in it.

    The new Revell 71 Bronco and Moebius 72 F-100 both have great 302's with the stock stamped valve covers but neither have the script as far as I can tell.

    If I remember correctly you have to take a bit out of the windshield at the bottom of the vent windows because the MPC interior tub has a bump on each side where the ends of the dash rest, you can also round off the ends of the dash so you don't have to take so much out of the glass.

    I buy my chain at Michael's or Hobby Lobby in the jewelry section, they sell it in a few different sizes. Just be sure to get the kind with the links the correct shape.

    If someone who can still find them would pick me up one I'd appreciate it, they never made it to my usual sources in my area.

    Man I love those CL's, I guess I'm going to have to save my pennies for a resin one.
  8. Fat Brian added a post in a topic Nuclear car   

    The Fallout video game franchise takes place in an alternate future in which scientists of the 40's were able to harness nuclear power and make all of the wild atomic ideas of the 50's a reality. They have some very interesting ideas about what a nuclear car would look like.

    I never really owned anything classic but I do miss my 95 SC300, that car was going places but I ended up having to sell it. My only regrettable near miss was a 70 Impala two door hard top, it was perfect but I couldn't get the cash together.

    You could get the 12v71 from the Super Boss kit and have all the extra parts and pieces to work with though the turbo setup will most likely not fit under the cab over dog house. The 12v71 won't be any longer that the inline six already in the K100, just a bit wider.
  11. Fat Brian added a post in a topic Kenworth 8 Bag Air Suspension   

    There are different versions with different ratings, the most common 8 bag setup (called Airglide in Kenworth speak) is rated at around 40,000 pounds but they make units capable of nearly 70,000 pounds. The snap kit most likely has the standard 40k setup which would work for a smaller dump truck but not for any of the mixers out there in kit form though you could scratch slightly smaller one if you wanted.

    Wow, I was going to scratch build one of these for a project but not now. That s a very nice piece.
  13. Fat Brian added a post in a topic Dads last ride by Clayton s   

    Moebius has two versions of their 53' trailer, a smooth side and one with slightly corrugated sides. It's 1/25 scale but the difference is pretty small on such a huge piece.
  14. Fat Brian added a post in a topic Offbeat Places You Have Purchased Model Kits?   

    When I was a kid I bought a model of the USS Yorktown in the gift shop aboard the USS Yorktown at Patriot's Point in Charleston, South Carolina.
  15. Fat Brian added a post in a topic Motor ID help   

    Okay, I'm going to take a stab at this. I think you have a combination of two engines there, most of the lower part of the engine is the chrome FE motor from a Lindberg issue of the 34 Ford wrecker which explains the chrome plated yellow plastic. The valve covers appear to be the Buick nailhead parts from the AMT 40 Fords kits and are incorrect for the Ford block and heads.
