    FYI, the color me gone kit does NOT have the single headlight grille insert in it .

    The air cleaners are in the Lindberg Color Me Gone 64 Dodge.
    The single headlight grille is in most of the others( not the CMG issue )
    I  have extras of both if you need them
    the hubcaps I'm not sure of ,,,you looked in the 64 Plymouth version ?

    Scothorn Motors . About halfway between Hebron and Petersburg in northern Ky Was primarily a Chrysler Plymouth Desoto dealership . But they could get you any GM product brand new, no idea how they did it.
    But I've talked to multiple people over the years who they or there parents bought non Mopars new there. ( they didnt stock anything but Mopar )  Place closed back in the early eighties but I was there when the auction happend to buy nos parts and there was a lot of GM parts on the shelf .
    Its a bodyshop now.

    WOW,,,,,especially the color. Love it.
    If you dont mind me asking. Whats it like to gets models. kits or supplies in Russia ?
     Do you have hobby shops or is everything mail order.
    Just curious as Hobby shops are rare around here these days ( only 2 in the area now ,,neither of which is heavily stocked in models. mostly either trains or RC stuff )

    I know there are some out there in resin,
    But there is a set in the Revell Thunderbolt kit that's not bad ,,,,,,you just have to cut them apart as they are molded together

    Not sure I could put ' Delightful ' and  ' Tofu ' in the same sentence

    Thanks , and yes they are Fred Cady decals . I bought them long ago to use on a Johan build that never happened.
    For some reason the pictures make them look yellowed ,,but in reality they are not ( or if they are its very very slight)
  10. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Max Wedge ?   

    Ok , curiosity go the best of me
    Ramchargers Dodge - Hemi with the  wide hemi hood scoop
    Mavericks Dodge - Hemi with the 2 lump max wedge hood scoop
    Color Me Gone Dodge - Max wedge with the 2 lump hood scoop
    Pettys 1964 Plymouth - Hemi - no hood scoop
    The Black 64 Plymouth - is the odd duck. it has a big block wedge with single 4 barrel AND the slant six ( didn't see a hood scoop in the box )
  11. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Max Wedge ?   

    I think the Color Me Gone and the Maverick kits do.
    I know the Ramchargers is a hemi car. Don't remember about any of the others. I have them all if you need confirmation

    The Dodge Boys , another long stalled project
    Actually got to spend a few minutes at the model bench this week . And again concentrating of finishing some long stalled projects.
    This one is the 1964 Dave Strickler driven Bill Jenkins tuned Hemi Dodge. I had painted this car nearly 2 years ago,,,After multiple issues painting the hood multiple times , I got disgusted and put it away.
    Well that all changed when I found the can I used to paint it * its a duplicolor rattle can . So in the purple pond went the hood and I tried again, with much better results this time around.
    Sprayed the hood, (thankfully it now matches the car ). Dug out some parts box pieces to throw a crossram  hemi 4 spd together . Plan is  work on it the next few weeks to get another one off the bench and in the case. On this one I put some spacers under the leaf springs and  I flipped the front spindles over and I really like the stance much better than the others I had built . , Just noticed I need to change the pedals to  reflect the 4 speed change.
    Also, since these pics were taken I have since removed the vent window frames to reflect the actual car.
    Comments more than welcome. And thanks for looking.

    Sure looks a lot like the rags laying on my shop bench at the moment,,,grease stains and all ( I had to build a Mopar transmission for a customer of mine this week )
    I saw a picture some time ago  where the builder used this method to make a green tarp over a car. Using a paper towel with a  green tinted glue /water mix. It looked EXACTLY like a tarp , texture and all .
  15. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Where to buy Model King kits?   

    The new Melrose Missle 65 Plymouth I assume ?
    My local hobby shop has them on order ,,,not aware of any special means to get them . If thats the kit in question
