Tom, I have both sheets of the travel decals that have been mentioned. The Talladega and the Merc wagon. Send me your addy in a P.M. and I can get them out on Monday. I will send the whole sheet from the Torino and just the travel decals from the Merc.
I might be able to get you a scan of them, but I won't be able to get it for 2 to 3 weeks if you can wait that long. Have an unbuilt one from a friends collection that I am trying to help her sell. Probably have 1500 kits left to put instructions and decals back into since he filed them in a filing cabinet for a bit more protection from possible damage.
TDR does and you can see it through thier catalog or on Shapeways Site. 3-D printed so it is not exactly cheap, but it is very accurate. I have their catolog downloaded and I will check tomorrow afternoon to see if I can find the part number for you.
Tom, if they are from the Revell version I would definately be interested in them. Already have 3 kits bought and 2 engines were taken out and traded the rest of the kit away, keeping one to build and the engines for a couple of projects. Now if I could just find someone who wanted the Caddy engines out of the two '49 Merc's and wanted to trade the Flathead engine out of the '48 Ford custom I would be able to build the Mercury Woody and co the way I would like to!
Tom, I would be interested in the "couple" of 2010 Camaro engines. What might you trade or want for them? And are the from the Revell or AMT kit? Interested either way. Just need to make it worth your time.
Khils, if you don't get any response on the Nomads I would be interested in both. Please let me know. I would like both kits but especially the California Wheels version. Can work out a trade or buy. Thanks.
Rex, thanks for the side by side pics. They are off just a bit more than I expected, but not anything that could not be overcome. Now I really want Monogram/Revell to do a street '69 Boss car to set beside their '70 Boss 302 kit!
Hey Rex, have you ever held that die-cast '69 Trans Am Mustang to the Monogram '70 Mustang to see how close the wheelbases are? Would be interesting to know in case they are the same so I can start looking for a diecast like you have. Resin body time for a possible street version '69 Boss 302, since Monogram/Revell still have not seen fit to do one. Heck I am greedy I want to do both a '69 Boss 302 and Boss 429 street version. Trans Am cars would be next, but you would only need to do the '70 Boss 302 since they had the 5 liter engine limit.
Rob, have you gotten the engine you wanted yet? I am looking to trade the one out of the Merc for either the yellow version of the Revell '50 Ford pickup or even better, the one out of the '48 Ford custom. I thought for sure the Merc would have a flathead in it, but Nope, looks like a Caddy. Really want the flathead engine out of the '48 Ford Custom but not too crazy about the chopped top in it and not sure if all the engine parts are the same in the '48 Ford police car version. Anybody that does know I would like to find out for sure.
Hey Dave, just got out of medical rehab where I have been for the last 7 weeks. Do you need a good box and decals for this? Had a good one till the upstairs leaked onto the box. Still sealed, but I know the box is not mint and I don't know for sure about the decals since it is still factory sealed. Give me a call and we can go from there if you think it will fit your needs.
Rex, yes that is the supplier I was thinking of. Got home and checked the computer. Used my tablet in rehab but it does not have all the stuff I have bookmarked. Home now and just have to get my physical therapy set up. Having to be in medical rehab due to broken hip and shoulder is a, well you know how the rest of the saying goes.
James, I have seen the body you are looking for and I think I have it bookmarked on my computer but I am in rehab for a broken hip and shoulder so it will be at least another 2 weeks before I get a medical release to go home to check. The site has some other great conversions, but I also remember hearing some not so great issues about receiving orders.
