    smething like this ?
    the one on the right is I think from the Revell 1969 Z28 with a crossram

  2. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Moebius '65 Mercury Comet Cyclone news   

    Agreed,
    I want the 65 Comet more so than anything mentioned in the past 2 years. And I am a Mopar guy and still havn't bought a 65 Satellite yet ( but I plan to soon,,)
    I WILL get a 57 Del Rio wagon and probably a 61 Pontiac . But the Comet is right at the top of my want list for new releases
  3. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Need 60 Lincoln parts   

     have 2 extra 60 Lincolns I would part with
    One is pretty decent , the 2nd needs work .
    Both of mine are verts , so cant help with the top . But dont really want to part them out and I dont have an extra grille or just parts
     
    After thinking about this for a minute. And a couple members have been EXTREMELY generous to me on my want list . I'll just continue to pay it forward
    PM me an address and I'll send you this one. Use what you can ,,, sell or trade what you cant / dont use

    Like mentioned a simple coat of a semi gloss black ,,,,,,or bare primer. Then just some slight detail work with contrasting colors
  5. 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
  7. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Monogram Lincoln Futura   

    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 )

    Very nice build.
     
    This is one kit on my very short list to do ..probably be this winter. I plan to do it in the original ice blue
  9. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Mopar/ Duster Question   

    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
  10. gtx6970 added a post in a topic "60 CHEVY WAGON (Paint/Weathering)   

    I am watching that kit on ebay,,and its already over $100 ,,,WAYYYYYYY to rich for my pocket
  11. gtx6970 added a post in a topic MPC Soapy Sales Challenger Funny car ......   

    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
  12. gtx6970 added a post in a topic What to do when frustration strikes?   

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

  14. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Wild Willie's Funny Car Color   

    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
     

  15. gtx6970 added a post in a topic $2.25 Million Cuda   

    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
