  1. Fat Brian added a post in a topic Need some design help. AMT '57 Chrysler   

    When that kit first came out there was a Sketchpad feature done on it and the one that stuck with me and I'm going to try to build was a graft of the then new Charger front end and replacing the top with something more modern along with a Viper engine. It was kind of in the style of Troy Trepanier.

    That is the one, it's pretty hard to find.

    It's the same kit but has the older style Aerodyne sleeper. If that kit has a sleeper top that has two windows in it along with the one on the box it would work.

    I believe it is, it looks like it would be an ideal base for a W900B conversion.

    Looking for Revells T600 kit
    I'm looking for the early Revell T600 kit, the one with the aerodyne sleeper.

    Those would look great in a modern Weber style setup too.

    I sent a Mack B 75, R 700, and Ultraliner along with a bull nose and needle nose Kenworth, a W900B, a Ford CL9000, and a Pete 350 and 351. I know they're all in resin but a whole kit would be nice.

    If you really didn't get anything off with EO you might need to go to brake fluid(not cleaner in the spray can). EO works on soft enamel paints like Testors, the Rustoeum might be a tougher laquer paint that will need a different stripper to remove it. Another thing to consider is the effort it's going to take to strip it versus the cost of replacing the kit, all of those Monogram T-birds have the same body in them and lesser known drivers kits can be had for about $5 on ebay so sinking a lot of time and effort into saving this body might not be the best choice.

    This kit is based off the AMT 88-97 Chevy pickup kits, the glass from that kit should fit perfectly. The bumper in the kit is the light duty version where the red truck has the heavy duty bumper, it should be super easy to make out of Evergreen pieces. I learned how to drive a manual transmission in a truck pretty close to this one.

    Wow, this is incredible. I can see a few of these in my future as donor kits for restomod builds.

    I've bought three so far at Hobby Lobby and all of mine are fine, maybe they got a different batch from the ones that are messed up. Ben, you got yours from Tower, right?

    I just ordered from Gary a couple weeks ago, he only takes orders through the mail and you have to send a check or money order. I believe he has the cab in both flat and cut out doors but you'll have to ask him to be sure.

    One has it for $34.99, my other local one has it for $39.99. It ends up being about $25 with the coupon.

    Ebay is a great resource but do a bit of homework before pulling the trigger on the first Buy it Now you see, sometimes you can pick up the whole kit for what some sellers are asking for just a few parts.

    I built the 57 T-bird in the early 2000s for friends mom, it was silver with a red interror. It went together easily but I agree with the other poster that said they are a bit empty. It came with a hose for sparkplug wires but could have done with much more detail, it was like a small kit blown up.
