Wayne, I have to agree with what most others have already said and encourage you to keep the kit as is, with one exception. I see the bumper brackets on the back and that bumper needs to be added.That is the only addition I would say needs to be added. To me that would not be destrying any of your friends work, just adding a piece that he would have done himself
Rob, sorry to disagree but I am buying more Linberg kits than AMT right now. Linberg kits were tooled much more recently than any AMT kits. Want the latest tooling just to the advances in tooling! I may be in the vast minority in buying many of the Round2 reissues, simply due to the fact many of the original tools are close to 50 years old now. I know many modelers are grateful to have these reissuies, but having so many of the earlier issues, I am not buying many of these re-issues. Moiebus is getting much of my purchases now.. Distant second is Revell even with a few new tools.. Round2 is a distant second to Revell. Round2 gives me a '67 Nova SS retool and things change!! Let alone a new tool '68 Cuda!!
Mark, sorry but I do disagree, yes it fits, but this is still a Linberg kit. Round2 could do better by producing it as a Linberg kit to avoid anyone question if this was a new tool or some reissue. Granted I am buying it, but still wish it were issed as an update for a Lindberg kit
Just going to add my 2 cents worth. ANYTHING you get from Modelhaus will be the best molds you will be able to get from the time the molds were done. I will say with Don's announced retirement date he may be so busy casting just to keep up, rather than doing new molds If the retirement date was not an issue, I honestly think some molds would be updated if he had a few more years to recoup the cost of new masters. But I am buying as much of his products as I have the funds to (probably more than!!!). I sure wish I had a valid reason for him to continue!!
