Model Roundup does post links to Chris's Videos. I go straight to his youtube channel though.

I would love to have Chris subscriber count and views for my YT channel.

I'll have to get a couple of these. The one disappointment might be the carry over NASCAR front seat, beyond that I see nothing but good things for this kit. I noticed that they include the better floor and inner fender part that I think comes from the wagon model. This will make it easier to put wider tires than stock on the front. Great looking mag wheels even if you're not building a Gasser.

Took years and years, buying and building lots and lots of kits and grew on it's own eventually.
It will get there!

Thanks Russ!

There's plenty of room on YT for all of us to find a niche of modelers that like the content. 

I've used Jon's videos to look at all kinds of Asian kits I never even knew about.

Do they have them in stock, or does the listing include "preorder" in the fine print?

Omni is part of Horizon, which bought Hobbico's RC assets IIRC.   And they are in Champaign, Ill..

That there is, plenty of room ,  and I have watched your videos for the the US kits.

That is my goal to cover the none US kits as most of the US guys focus on the American kits.

Does anybody know if the "new" AAR is based off the latest '70 Cuda kit, a reissue of the AAR from 1995 or a new tool ?

Near as I can tell, it seems to be based off the latest '70 kit.

It's based on the new tool '70 Barracuda/ Sox & Martin kit. I got one last Friday (6-14-19). The Hemi valve covers and dual carbs are left in the AAR kit from the earlier releases but the 4 tires are still all of equal size (unlike the real car's staggered sizes). Maybe the AMT parts pack tires will work (?).

I thought the bodysides looked better than the latest '70 kit (not so slabsided) and the roofline looks better than the '95 issue (not a chopped top).

When I built the 70 Hemi Cuda I think I used the AMT parts pack for tires.  Would be nice to have different sized tires front and back.  I believe the original car was E60x15 front and G60x15 rear?

Yep the Parts Pack tires in staggered sizes look good on the new tool Cuda.

That does look good.   Did you ever do gills on the front fenders?
