No Bill they are a separate detail kit, to add to any model.

I've already got an AMT ' 66 Mustang kit to fit these to!

I've searched on Google and found this as a starter idea..................

Thanks for the reply Pat. I need to work on making myself clearer when posting. Do the wheel arches and front splitter make up one kit and the Halibrand wheels and tires a separate kit?

You can buy wheels and the arches/splitter separate on C1 facebook site. Also other cool wheels and pro-touring muscle car stuff there.

Yes Tommy, the arches and splitter are a separate kit to the wheels and tyres.

This arrived from Japan today. Not what I would normally build but thought it looked pretty cool. Anyone ever built one ?

Went to a large Antique Fair and found these Four Kits 😄 All in Very Good Condition, spoke with the seller said they are from a Estate Sale 

Very Excited with the Alfa Romeo Gran Sport and the Excalibur SSK kits they are in 1/12 scale to me they are Beautiful Cars 

The Honda CB400 bike and the Christie were thrown in has part of the Deal I made with the Seller 

I did OK on the Deal he knew what he had so he did not give them away but he accepted my fair offer which was better than is starting point 😄😄

Those are cool Don. Never seen the Alfa Romeo before,must be rare. 

I bought an AMT 58 Bonneville convertible i plan on convert to hardtop,and a AMT 60 Bonneville convertible easy restore project. I assume this

maby are of the craftsman series,not much chassis or any engine detail. I found a AMT 64 Pontiac GP nice box with lot`s of custom parts and

a tub in good condition on Ebay,the tub i have on my GP are more or less shot,damaged by old glue. So it`s been a good day for models lol

Note that the Alfa kit is a replica of a replica, commissioned in 1966 by Alfa from Zagato, as an anniversary car. I believe it has a 1600 engine. It's true to the replica but not to an original 1750 Zagato.

Grabbed the Revell Hemi Dart for $6.99 at Michaels an hour ago (see my posting on the Michaels thread for the other sale items I noted).

Now trying to decide whether to build it with the 440 and stuff the Hemi in my '65 Monaco, or vice versa...

Oh my quandry!  I have always bought MCM at my local hobby shop, but right after buying the last issue I subscribed.  So now I have to play a waiting game to see if one comes in the mail...
