  1. Thanks for sharing, Lyle. I always enjoy seeing pics from the MAMA boys.
  2. That's one cool long roof Bryan!!! And before Jairus gets to ya, put your first and last name in your sig :wink: .
  3. WOW :!: :!: :!: Beautiful color on a beautiful car. What did you use for a base coat?
  4. Billy, Check your email. I have a set of the Goodyears from the original release of the '66 you can have. Email me your snail mail addy and they're yours.
  5. I have several sets of Gooche decals but I've not used them yet. Probably like Keith Marks decals, I would coat them with Microscale Liquid Decal Film (LDF), apply like any other decals, mist several coats of clear before applying wetter coats. Like any decals, always test on scrap parts before doing the real thing.
  6. Way to go, Billy :!: Hate to burst your bubble, but page 40 is my favorite of the Aug/Sept 2006 issue. My Johan Rambler wagon is featured in the 2005 Heartland Nationals coverage. Three other builders from the Tulsa Miniature Motorworks club also have models highlighted in the coverage. Tell you what, I'll autograph your copies if you'll sign mine.
  7. Outstanding detail!!! Were you one of the Puerto Ricans that made the trip to Kansas City to the Heartland Nationals?
  8. Darn it...I knew you were going to say that :wink: :!: Not to worry, it will still look killer no matter what. But by chance if this one gets parked on the "to do" lot and does not get any further attention, you know where to send it. MPC Motorsports would love to get its hands on this one.
  9. Matt, you absolutely nailed the look on that '50 :!: 8) I hope you are going modern with the rolling stock and other details. It's just begging for it :!:
  10. A/FX N Scale Resin has the Broncos. Funny Car version: Stock version: The drag version sells for $25 and the stock version is $40. http://www.afxnscaleresin.150m.com/ and click the "Resin Bodies" hyperlink.
  11. Joe, Pegasus uses two different tires and the ones I have are the traditional "rubber band" tire. They measure 1.09" in diameter and .50" wide. In metric they measure 27.7mm and 12.7mm. The tires pictured are probably 2 to 3 mm taller. Hope this helps.
  12. "Big Daddy" Don Garlits was burning up the strip in this legendary Swamp Rat the year I was born. For those of you who aren't up on your drag racing history that would be 1960... which makes me 46. Enjoy!!!
  13. The following brand new resin packages are available for purchase from Reliable Resin. To see images of all the items do a search on Ebay for seller Got_de_Mottz but you can email Don at ReliableResin@aol.com to order direct. *1971 GTO transkit *1972 GTO upgrade package *1976 Firebird, Formula and Trans Am transkits *1967-68 Camaro RS/SS transkits with flat, SS, cowl induction, L88 or XP35th hoods Also available are flat and SS hoods for the Revell '69 Camaros and flat hoods with "Grump Lump" scoops for '67-69 Camaros to build a "Grumpy's Toy" replica. Keith Marks has decals if you want to build the GTO's and offers 1976 Formula and Trans Am decals too. Keith has more Camaro decals than you can shake a stick at. Watch for more new and exciting products from Reliable Resin in the coming weeks. Like Gregg mentioned in another post today, " Our hobby is going to grow more in the next year than ever before." And Reliable Resin is doing its part to make sure this happens. Enjoy these new products and you can ask me any questions you may have.
  14. Urban legend has it that the person who helped finance the Trumpeter car kits owned a '78 MC, and unless they made the MC, the Nova and Bonneville would not happen.
  15. That's cool 8) . Is there going to be a regularly scheduled time for the MCM Forum to hang out in the chat?
  16. A Gen 2 cowl induction hood based on the Chevelle SS design. I like how the lines of the scoop mimic the character lines on the hood. Considering this design for a new model project and wanted something different than the ubiquitous '69 Camaro cowl induction scoop. Do you think this works? Let me know what you think? I knocked this one out after dinner this evening. Still need to glaze some putty and finish blending in. Enjoy!!!
  17. Hey Chris, Any more work or thoughts on the 2006 taillight conversion? What are you gonna do for headlights?
  18. Clean build Casey. Looks like you didn't clearcoat your paint. Duplicolor, especially metallics, must have clearcoat to get the shine. Your build is very clean and your foil work looks nice too. Try clearing it next time and check out your results.
  19. Good for you Brian. While I like the message boards and forums, these days I have more fun actually building models than sitting at the computer talking about models. Can't wait to see what you're up to.
  20. If last night's post wasn't enough, here are some pics of even more new goodies from Reliable Resin for the First Gen Camaros. First up is a flat hood for the AMT '67-68 Camaro: Don't think for a 1:25 scale minute that we forgot about Revell's awesome '69 Camaro...how about a flat hood? or a Rally Sport hood? Now to address the shortcomings of AMT's '68 Camaro with its molded in headlights, introducing a new grille with separate CLEAR lenses. The lenses are red in the pics to show the detail. We're doing the same conversion on the '67 grille too. I'll post pics of it later. Stay tuned for more goodies from Reliable Resin. Email Don at ReliableResin@aol.com to order and tell him you saw them here first.
  21. Here's two hi res pics of the Camaro with the L88 hood. Here are two hi res pics of the '68 Camaro with the L88 hood.
  22. I am happy to introduce some new resin goodies from Reliable Resin for the AMT '68 Camaro. First pic is the RS/SS conversion package which includes RS/SS grille, RS hood, SS gas cap, front spoiler, and clear red taillights. Add some BMF to the taillight bezel and you're good to go. Same package with XP35th hood. Three other resin hoods will be available. Stock cowl induction: Slightly tweaked L88 hood: The third hood will be a flat hood last available in the '67 Z28 version of this kit. All the above mentioned parts are in RTV as I type. Email Don at ReliableResin@aol.com to order and tell Don you saw it here on the Model Cars Mag forum.
  23. The September 2006 issue of Hot Rod Magazine featured this Steve Stanford illustration of Steve Strope's latest project. It will feature a 514 inch crate motor with dual fours, a four speed Top Loader backed with a Gear Vendors overdrive with custom 19 and 20-inch Bonspeed rims. If interested, please send me your Johan Torino and I'll build it!!! Marc @ MPC Motorsports
