  2. Hi Ray, I am doing the same car. Here is the info that was posted in my thread from Larry. Maybe it will help. The Lime Ice is very hard to find but I found some on Ebay at a high price. Body color..#1835 testors lime ice! Or a mix of Testors/Boyd paint 50/50 mix of #52715 bright green pearl & #52707 lime pearl this is the color mix I used to paint Jim's model! this paint might also be not around, sorry. Rear spoiler.. polished aluminum blade Bumpers..dull aluminum Rear window.. dull aluminum Body tin, all chassis tin, all of the seat, fuel
  3. Thank you so much, Larry. I really appreciate the info and it will make it a lot easier to paint. The instructions are lacking a lot of that. They only call out a few of the part colors. Again, Thanks a lot, George
  4. Thanks Steve, that helps a lot. That is what makes this forum great !!
  5. Hi everyone, I am starting my 1/16 scale car. I know some of the cars of that time had black engines and maybe some aluminum. Does anyone know what color the engine block might be on this? Also should the chassis be a bare metal color, magnesium maybe? Any help on this kit would be great, George
  6. Hi, mine is supposed to be here by Friday. I can't wait to begin. I see that it is molded in a lighter green than the box. What green should we use for it and where can we get an injector scoop like the Garlits TF? Inquiring minds want to know !😆
  7. Hi, i'm talking about the red car. I agree, the gold car is beautiful.
  8. Hi all, I just got the Monogram Miller Warrior funny car. I am going to build it and really need help on correct colors. Any help would be great !! Instructions say chassis is black. That doesn't seem right. Also,is the body a Candy red? Metallic? Any other color help?? Thanks,George
  9. Hi all, my mom taught me in a '63 Plymouth Belvedere, light blue, with the push button transmission on the dash. The car was a bare bones, Slant 6, really no options,no air conditioning, no power anything. The only thing it had was an AM radio. From there, when I had driver's ed. the school had dodge coronet 440. After I passed Driver's Education, my mom and dad got me a '57 Chevy, turquoise body w/ white roof. It had a 265 and three on the tree that someone before me had made it 3 on the floor. Drove it all over Miami and Miami Beach. That is when I really learned to drive.

  11. I believe the one at $245 is a member here. He is a good seller and I am looking to get some of his kits. You can see more of his kits have a really good price.

She said it was worth 20K, maybe fully restored??
  13. Hi all, I love this topic !! here is our queen,Jazzy. We got her about 2 years ago. We have a website called Nextdoor in our area. People can send messages,stories and items for sale or free.
