  1. I am at my end. I am really having trouble with making copies of a tire. I just do not have the equipment (or time) to get them right. I have a master tire that I would be willing to provide if someone else could make the mold and copies. Do you guys have any suggestions for anybody that would do something like this? Thanks.
  2. Very cool ideas. I remember seeing those MPC kits on the shelves, and remember collecting the "golden wheels." The only thing I would add: I could do without any MPC Fieros. 🤮 I like the 3rd gen Firebirds, but they desperately need new wheels. The 3rd gen Camaros are pretty good, IIRC. I would LOVE to see the TurboZ or SuperZ rereleased. If you want to build an `80 or `81 Z28, your options are super limited, and those look great when built up.
  3. This is what surprises me about them considering to make the C9 front engine again. The new one is selling like crazy. I thought, with what must have been a HUGE investment to make it rear engine, that there was no going back. In other news, I wish we would see more from Revell. I am here looking at second gen and third gen Camaro/Firebird kits, and they are going at a premium. Even the `79 Camaro kit, which has been reissued a million times, is going for too much than I want to pay. Would be nice to see them re-release some of the existing kits at least.
  4. Yes, very nice! Much better than I was expecting given the box art. Is this a repackaged Monogram kit?
  5. Anyone see any of the December releases on the shelves yet? Getting anxious for the Petty car and the USA-1.
  6. Yes, the USA-1! And with a couple decal options. I am feeling nostalgic. And I think I am going to grab one of those Petty 1/16 cars!
  7. Thanks Luc!! Great news. I can`t wait to see it.
  8. Guys.... Somewhere I thought I saw round2 re-releasing the 1/25 USA-1 monster truck, based on the Coca Cola monster truck kit, but can`t find it. Has anyone else seen this?
  9. I don`t have many "In Progress" threads, as it takes everything in me just to have time to build, much less post. I did make the wheels and tires for this. For the wheels, I drew them up on my computer, then uploaded them to shapeways for a master. Then, after some cleanup, I made a mold and cast them in resin and sent them off to chrome. I am hoping to build a couple more with those wheels. Here are more pics of the Trans Am though: I`ve built a bunch of the 1/12 Camaro and Corvette kits over the past couple decades. I can post some links to them if that is what you are l
  10. I am trying to do a parts inventory, combining two of these kits which are incomplete. Want to make sure I have all the parts to build a whole one. Does anyone have instructions for this kit they would be willing to scan? Thanks!
  11. The Round1 1/16 Firebird kit is nice, but does take a little work, especially in the rear. Here is mine which is actually the turbo kit with my wheels, but it is based off the same kit: The Revell 1/16 GTA and Iroc kits build well, with some inaccuracies though. Here is the Iroc kit: The 1/12 Camaro and Corvette kits also come out excellent with some work: The 1/8 Corvette and Camaro kits also build well: And I agree with others....the 1/12 Revell Shelby GT kit is awful!!!
