  1. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Ford Hubcaps   

    Steve,
    The 58 Ford I have the wheels are ,,ok. maybe a rechrome but decent shape otherwise .
    My 1959 Mercury , I could use one due to a custom spinner added to it .the rest are very savable
    Its my 1959 Galaxie builder thats the main one I mainly need hubcaps for .

    Ford Hubcaps
    OK,
    I recenetly picked up builtups of a 1958 and 1959 Ford Convertibles. as well as a builtup 1959 Mercury vert
     
    So my questiion is ,,
    Does  either the AMT 1957 Ford Fairlane or T Bird , as well as the Revelll 1959 Fairlane . Does any or all the above have tires and hubcaps that are close to what would have been avail on any of the above
     
    If not ,,short of Modelhaus any other source to obtain anything ?      ( I would prefer stryene if I can is my reasoning  )

  5. gtx6970 added a post in a topic engine detail ?   

    About the most detail I go to anymore is plug wires and battery cables. Anything more than that  I tend to get dis-interested in the whole build
    Besides ,,,,,,outside of any pictures I post of the car on the boards ( IF I do even that ) . No one is going to see it but me ,,
  6. gtx6970 added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    Did a trade with our esteemed  number one old annuals guru. aka StevenGuthmiller
    And got a body to fix my builtup 1958 Ford Sunliner annual kit  which had been pretty heavily modified  .

    Ford Fairlane 500
    I have an original kit that all the markings are sanded off. so I am looking preferably for decals to replicate them
    Or Is the Model Car Garage my only alternative to fix it ? or any decal sheets have the 4 items  I need ? ( bothsides, above the grille and betwen the tail lights ( its a 1958 Sunliner btw )
     
    If its photoetch only,,,anyone have a partial sheet they want to part with just the pieces I need ,,,as I would rather not buy an entire  photoetch sheet if I dont have to

  12. gtx6970 added a post in a topic IF Revell,Round2 and others would make a few more station wagons. What would you like them to be?   

    I'm not a wagon fan as a rule
    But,,,,,,,, if they did an early 60s or late 50s Chrysler product I'd buy one of two
  13. gtx6970 added a post in a topic With Revells "Off the Shelf" success of their '57 Fords can these be far behind ?   

    Sure would like a 58 Sunliner myself

    What about something out of a 2014 Mustang GT as an example. ?
    it looks pretty cool


  15. gtx6970 added a post in a topic 1963 Dodge Polara   

    Very nice,,,,,, I sure have a soft spot for the 63 Dodges.

    I assume the body is just a repop of the Johan annual kit ?
    How is the engraving and detail on the body ?
