    Well, that $125 I paid for one on ebay a couple years ago feels a bit worse now.

    The AMT 69 Daytona kit is a horrible dumpster fire of sadness. You could help it by adding the chassis from the 68 Roadrunner you posted but by the time you buy two kits you could get the really great Revell 69 Daytona. If you watch ebay for a few weeks the Johan 70 kits can be found for an acceptable price, especially for an open box one.

    I was 13 or 14 when Superunknown came out and it was immediately my favorite cd that I owned. I later found Temple of the Dog and even got to see Audioslave live in 2006 in think, Chris's music has been with me for most of my life. Today is a going to be a rough day, made sadder by the fact that there is some evidence that Chris might have taken his own life. I guess you don't write songs like that or sing like that without some inner demons to deal with. It's becoming quite depressing that all of my favorite bands are gone forever, I mean Layne, Scott, Kurt, Shannon, and now Chris. Can we get some bodyguards for Eddie Vedder please?

    The AMT Baldwin Motion 70 Camaro has some very nice Cragar rims that have wider rears for a good 70's look.

    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.

  10. Fat Brian added a post in a topic Revell 30 Model A Ford Production Halted?   

    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.
  12. 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.

  13. Fat Brian added a post in a topic 1.1 cars that got away   

    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.
  14. Fat Brian added a post in a topic Kenworth k100 help   

    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.
  15. 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.
