  1. I thought 62 was Chevrolet anniversary year. I had a oval frame gold tented wall mount bubble with a 1912 Chevrolet in the top and a 1962 golden anniversary Chevrolet in the bottom. It was given to me buy a man that had a Chevrolet/Buick dealership a got it in 1962 for the amount of sales he had that year. On the box it said 50th Anniversary.
  2. I am looking for pictures of Dick Harrell's 67 Camaro under construction and interior shots. I also need measurements of wheel base. I am looking for the steel car w/fiberglass door and front end not the all fiberglass car w/tube chassis.
  3. Can anyone tell me what to expect with the Lindberg Auburn Speedster or maybe show photos. Elvin
  4. Mr Stock you are wright but I ws looking a Moebius past of top quaility kits and axpected no less with the 65 Plymouth. I will do just as you said in the future. I have had a few friends to take some off my hands and I am glad that we have it and plan to build a couple myself. I just think that it does not cost any more to get it right. SteveG you are right all kits have there problems but some of the problems are easer to fix than others and some are easer to live with.
  5. The windshield is not correct on the Lindberg either Plymouth or Dodge. Another problem with the New Moebius kits Plymouth and Ford trucks is flush mounted windshields that don't fit.
  6. I got your tires ready to go but did not get hem in the mail today. A friend of mine died while cutting his grass so I have been over at his house all afternoon and didn't get to the Post Office. I will mail them tomorrow. Elvin
  7. Bill that makes the front of the top look better but since I made that commit I noticed that the rear of the top is arched also. It is a shame that a model company will show you a test shot and not listen to commits unless you are telling them how great it is. I have been waiting for someone to do that kit for years and I bought a case [16 kits] and I am sick over it. I plan to take the top off of a Johan kit it is just a shame that you pay a big price for a kit and then have to take another 40.00 just for the top. I really think Moebius makes the best kits you can buy but they missed the boat on this one. I have been modeling for over 50 years and am a pretty good scratch builder but I think the only way you can fix this top is to cut it off and throw it away. Elvin
  8. I have the 65 Plymouth and it is a very nice kit but it still looks like a 65 Plymouth with a 54 Chevy windshield. The body looks great but too much arch on the top of the windshield. I am still glad we have it and will try to get use to it but I tried to tell them when the first test shot was available but I guess they didn't listen. Oh well too late now.
  9. Great job! one old man to another I love the tail lights, every 69 Chevelle I see built that is the first thing I look at. You need to send that picture to Round2 maybe they would fix the tail lights in that kit. I like the decals under the hood as well. Elvin
  10. Looks great Steve! I went to a model show in Lexington SC today and someone had a real Starliner Red on Red w/white top it was beautiful. He told me he did a complete frame of restoration about a year ago and it was flawless. Elvin
  11. Great job! you are a better man than I am because I would have thrown it in the trash. Elvin
  12. Great job! Taht is a real bueaty Steve. Elvin
  13. Round2 would do well to retool the body completely for this kit. The top looks chopped and the side trim does not line up. I was so excited when I found out they going to tool this kit. I bought one at a show the week it came out opened the box looked at the body and gave it to the guy that set up next to me.
  14. Well I guess we are stuck with the windshield I talked to Dave and Moebuis when the first test shot came out and it still looks like the windshield in the Revell 54 Chevy. I e-mailed Moebius a picture of the real car sitting at the same angle as the test shot and the real car does not have a crown in the top over the windshield. I guessing it will be like the Lindberg 64 Dodge people will go out and buy 1 or 2 kits and maybe build them but will loose interest in them. I really hate to say that about a great company and what could have been a great kit.
  15. Another great job I may not to show mine to you and Steve, I told Steve that maybe I should mail him the kit and let him mail it back done. Elvin
  16. It is not on the bench yet but it is next and soon. I just wanted to tell you about it. I bought it from Dean's Hobby Stop a sealed kit. As soon as I opened the package I took the kit out and with my fingers crossed opened the kit, molded in white with beautiful chrome. I think this is as nice of a kit as I have ever had and can't wait to build it. I have had 3 or 4 unbuilt kits but none as nice as this one. I am going to build it show room stock except I am going to use the wire wheels from the 55 Chrysler which was an option. I am not sure what color to paint it but most likely 2 tone. Elvin
  17. If he is I would like to have my 45.00 back. Elvin
  18. I would like to see a 33 or 41 Willys Gasser in 12th or 8th scale. Elvin
  19. Great job! I love the old Johan kits.
  20. Looks great but if you look at the third picture the top of the windshield still looks like a 54 Chevy. With what tooling cost and what we have to pay for a kit it does look like the model companies would try to get them right. Elvin
  21. That is a real beauty great job.
  22. Ron lambert [am73grand] is a great trader. I traded with him and got more than I was expecting. I would recommend you trade with him any time. Elvin
