Just placed my order with Model roundup for one of these kits .

Just ordered mine from a seller on eBay. It was a buck cheaper than MRU. I think by mid February it should arrive.

Just one?

With your screen name I would have thought at least a half dozen.

 

I'm waiting to see who has the best deal then I want to get AT LEAST a half dozen

Bill I'm not a big fan of the 65 Plymouth but I hope they sell out so we can get a 65' Dodge coronet AWB  ! and if we do i'll get 6 of them .

Are those the ones with prepainted bodies??

Hope I am understanding your question correctly.....so here goes... 

No....the 1965 Coronet pre-paints were originally from Polar Lights tooling, now owned by Round 2.  The were also factory stock model  cars, not the AWB Coronets suggested above. 

The (again) presumption implied above is that Moebius/Model King eventually would do a second Coronet body to fit on their Golden Commandos AWB tooling that is just becoming available now.  

To my eye the Polar Lights Coronet bodies were never quite correct.  If Moebius/Model King ever did one in the future, I suspect the body would be much more true to the real car.....

Again, I apologize in advance if I've misinterpreted your question....

I already have a '65 Coronet AWB started in resin and yes the '65 Plymouths  & Dodges are on my "fave" list, both in scale and 1:1.

I wonder what possibilities there are kit bashing this with a Butch Leal, "California Flash" car?

Can I get those big Hillborns to fit the Belvedere?  I'd guess so, but the will be only one way to find out. I'll have to buy this kit too!

If you buy the kit and don't like it, you could always send it to me and thanks!
