1970½ Plymouth 'Cuda(V4 Code Strobe Stripes):

Here you go - the CA plates with correct font and stickers on the rear plate only:

Thank you, fixed it up - Was pressed for time on that one hah.

Those decals look fantastic , NJ ! Lots of cool and now-esoteric models represented here .

I would like to submit a correction for the 'Cuda sets :

- Plymouth's engines were called "Super Commando" ( Dodge's nomenclature was , "Magnum" )

- Plymouth's 440 Maximum Performance 440 was called "Six Barrel" ( Dodge called theirs " Six Pack" ) . This same nomenclature applies to the 1970-only AAR 'Cuda ( "SIX BARREL 340" ) ; Dodge was ( "340 SIX PACK" ) . To add to the confusion : the 1970 Challenger T/A has a styllised " SIX PAK" [sic] decal on its front fenders .

I'm definitely not criticising you and your works here , so please don't take my submissions as such .

Thank you :)

Even if it was criticism, no problem hah! Without it, nothing would get changed right! And thats actually useful info, I always knew the Six Barrel and Six Pack difference but wasn't 100% sure if Dodge's Magnums were totally exclusive like the Plymouth Super Commando(like they interchanged the Four Barrel name/decals), so effectively I should get rid of the 383 and 440 Magnums as they're Dodge, right? Could leave 'em for the sake of it, I don't suppose people would mind some spares for their other builds haha.

I pretty much dragged all the air cleaner decals besides the Six Pack ones on there, now I come to think of it!

That's right ! There were only 'year' stickers ( as see n in the sample you've provided) until 1976 .

Nice 1970-issue plate samples .

@av405: Thanks for sending those pics of the AMT Dodge Ram 2500, I'm gonna wrap up the S-10/S-15 emblem sheet and then immediately onto the RAM, get that truck some love!

Does that S10/S15 sheet have for both 1st gen and 2nd gen?  Also, I'm excited to see the Ram sheet when you complete it! B)

Could you possibly do these decals for the re-issued International Scout SSII? They're the ones on either side of the license plate on the tailgate. Round2 updated the decal sheet from the original kit, but did not add these.

Or the Cruisin van, If the next AMT kit doesn't come with these decals.

Or the Pinto, but I think these were only on the 78.

I always liked the vibrant colors these cars came in. They'd make great models. I wrote to Round 2 suggesting these options, but I'm not holding my breath.

My god, the black bronco with the sunset decals is just stunning... and the silver cruising wagon pinto.... I'd love to have those too. I have several bronco kits and pintos that need these!

I've ordered my second Super Stones F-150 kit as the previous one just... never showed up, which is apparently gonna be here next friday so then I'll be able to start a gargantuan amount of F-150 sheets, like the '79 Freewheelin', '79 Indy Pace Truck, '79 Bronco Freewheelin' with the cab wrap and... it kinda goes on. Also, I've actually been trying to look for a Cruisin' Van to work with(those AMT vans are stupidly, ungodly expensive) to match the set of the Pintos, but one day perhaps. While I'm doing the '79 Indy Pace Truck F-150 I'm also doing the Indy Mustang in 1/24th and 1/25th, cause the colors and fonts are pretty much the same. On the other hand, the files I'm currently actually working on are the '75 Chevy Chevelle Laguna S-3, '77 Oldsmobile 442, '73 Pontiac LeMans GTO, '73 Pontiac LeMans Formula X(and the '73 Ventura and Firebird as well, seriously give Pontiac Formula X a Google, shame they didnt get put into production) and the '77 Pontiac Can Am - so a lot of A-body GM stuff for now, some AMC and Ford stuff in between but I'm primarily doing those first as they're similar enough to get 'em done rather quick.

@Jordan White: The sheet will have pretty much every badge/emblem/etc for every S-10 and S-15/Sonoma from 1982 through 2004, since there's not a giant amount of difference and unique versions bar a few.

Also holy balls of fire, is that Levis/Coke van for real? Good lord thats... extreme. I'd do a sheet of that thing in a heartbeat if I had a Econoline kit on hand. Also some updates to the sheet list of doom:

I gotta get some of those pinto decals!!!

The AMT van can be had as the more recent phantom van as well if you're looking. If you need a bronco body for measurements I could loan you one of my AMT Bronco bodies.

Ahh they're still silly expensive on eBay but at least a hell of a lot more affordable than anything, or I suppose I could wait for the Cruisin' Van re-release to hit the market which should be hopefully this year still. But on the other hand, I actually might have to take you up on your offer with the Bronco, if you could run a scan of it or some pictures of the body with a ruler or something that would be absolutely beautiful! I've gotten the Super Stones F-150 in the mail today so at least I can get started on doing those sheets, just finished one of the two Free Wheelin' pick-ups(the segmented/striped one) and working on the cab-over/door wrap with the smoother sunset graphics as we speak, which isn't too difficult all-in-all and fortunately I can keep most of the color designs for the Bronco as well! Next up, the aforementioned sunset stripes, the Indy Pace Truck(along with the Indy Pace Car Mustang) and afterwards the Bronco Free Wheelin' and the triple stripe Free Wheelin' Bronco as well.

@Dave Toups: I could, there's a handful of International Scout II sets I'd love to do, like the Bicentennial and oh man, the Rallye especially, so I've got reasons plenty to do them and those tailgate stripes. I'd have to score a Scout II kit for it though.

So thanks to Maindrian Pace the start into Bronco territory is beginning, the triple stripe is coming up next and afterwards I'm going into the 1980s generation with the one Free Wheelin' Bronco with the vertical sunset theme, as well as the XLS Bronco that was seen in the 1982 Lion in Winter Ford ad. Gotta admit, man, those F-150s were a bunch of work... The sunset one I had to mostly entirely by hand instead of a colored gradient, and the Speedway Package had a unique Ford font that was nearly impossible to mimic but I managed!

Aside from that to ward off artist's block I did some random designs(while fighting the curves of Laguna S3 fenders that I basically have to scratch up from zilch cause why in the hell there isn't a stock variety of is beyond me and doing the near-impossible-to-guess-angle of Pontiac LeMans' & Can Ams) in the meantime. But the F-150 series from '78-'79 are covered at least! They're absolutely friggin' gargantuan, though - the smallest sheet is 8x16cm. I wanted to do the whole interior as well with the red covered dash bezel and the silver/red seats but I'm doing those a separate little sheet for those who really want it, it just would've become a 25$+ sheet due to sheer size alone.

@Merkur XR4Ti: Thanks dude, it's been a busy... it's been nearly a year already, woof, time flies man!

Anyway!

Wow! I believe a sunset Bronco sheet will have to come my way to be applied to that very Bronco. I always wondered what to do with it, but not any more!

Speaking of the XLS Bronco, what if you made all four stripe color sets (blue, black, silver, red) long enough for the long bed F150 and in 2 pieces, so that way you could make the XLS Bronco, F150 shortbox/stepside, or the F150 longbed. You would just need to trim them down to the length you need!
