    Is it the C600 kit you need the bumper from?

    We had a beautiful 78 Cutlass that was metallic cinnamon with a tan leather interior that had a metric 200 in it. When it finally started to die we couldn't find anyone who wanted to rebuild it so we had to get rid of it.

    I'd love to have an 81 2 door Caprice, we had an 84 4 door right after we were married and it was very comfortable.

    If anyone sees any of the Raminator trucks or their variants I'd be interested in them.

    I don't know how he missed the giant hump in the middle of the roof, it looks like the start of a Vista Cruiser. Bill's model works because of how low it is, the low roof and the low ride height work together along with keeping the stock roof length. This looks like as much of not knowing how to do the job correctly as it was just a generally poor design choice.

    A lot of these tractors were built so that some of the engines were easy to remove so they could compete in multiple weight classes at the same event, the Banter Bros. Mission Impossible tractor was another I remember running different engine configurations.

    Mine is black. It actually looks like a pretty nice kit and now there are a ton of customizing options from all the 1/18 diecasts but I really wish it had been 1/24.

    BNL Resins makes a lot of 4x4 parts that could be used to make one but they're all straight axle style. I don't think anyone does the stock IFS front end the factory used.

    Well, I finally got the kit in my hands and it's probably 1/16 or 1/18 scale instead of the advertised 1/24. I was really hoping to keep the motorcycles a consistent scale with the rest of my models.

    I had seen that brand but not those particular pieces, I'll have to check that Indian out.

    Thanks Tim. I looked for the Revell F150/Harley kit and it's outrageous now, maybe one will pop up a bit cheaper if I keep looking. I guess I need to get the Maisto pieces in my hands to see how they look, I can't tell from the ebay pictures.

    I agree with everyone else, it's an AMT Nascar engine. As for what it represents, Ford Nascar engines of this period were based on the 351 Cleveland. You can tell the difference between the two Ford 351s by the valve covers, the Cleveland covers are rectangular with bolts in the upper corners while the Windsor covers are rounded on the top corners like a 289/302 cover. The water pumps are also different but that's sometimes hard to tell in kit form.

    1/24 scale motorcycles
    I recently found an old Lindberg Harley Shovelhead kit in 1/24 scale on ebay and had to get it. I saw the other kits in the line but none of them really interest me, are there other Harley or Indian kits out there? Also, are the Maisto diecasts in 1/24 scale good enough to take apart and really detail or customize them?
