  1. gtx6970 added a post in a topic What do you do when they ask?   

    I've been asked several times over the years. I simply tell them to figure somewhere in the $150 range and up to build a nice shelf piece they would be proud of and they usually drop it after that.
     
    The last 2 kits I've actually finished I gave away to the owners of the actual cars they  replicated. For free.
    BOTH were floored beyond belief.

    An A990 is /was a Sedan only.
    Imo...would be a better seller than the 2 door hardtop

    Thing is,,,, at one time ,the original issue of this kit brought huge money. So IMO a collector  will want the original issue and only the original issue. So chances are thats the only way it would sell for anything close to $129. This one and the Pontiac club-de-mer were highly sought after by collectors.
    I've got a couple of the re-issues from a few years ago ( sorry not for sale at this time )

    Mopar had there ' recomended ' color combinations.
    But it didnt take a whole lot of pursuasion to get most any color combo.
     
    I know of a 1970 Challenger thats sand pebble beige ( a 'very' light tan ) it has a red painted roof and a red interior

    Not sure I follow.
    This kit shares nothing in common with the original issue MPC 1970 Challenger kit annual ,,,and no the body is not the same .
    As a side note,,,,, the body in the Soapy Sales kit is not the same as the one in the Original Color Me Gone kit either

    I'll just turn the light out and go do something else.
    Sometimes I come right back the model bench,,,sometimes its months later

    I used a Rattle can tractor color from Tractor Supply
     
    I would have to find the can to ck the name or number on the can

    Hemi Cuda convertibles have been deep into 7 figures for many years now.
    And I know of quite a few that get driven on a regular basis ,, One guy I know has a 1970 Hemi Cuda vert as well as a 1970 Hemi Challenger vert,,he takes them both on drives quite often
     
    so,,,, not all of them are garage queens

    Steve,
    It looks amazing ( as I expected )  Glad to be able to help with the wheels. Looks like they went to a  good home. And the '58 Sunliner conv body saved my builtup .
