  1. The Revell kit has the old axle beam front suspension. The Aoshima kit would have the strut style suspension. But the Aoshima kit is, I believe, a '73( kit's at home, I'm at work) with the curved windshield. So kit bashing is in order.
  2. I don't think that's possible. I believe the tooling was modified and the '70 Coronet(the body and interior anyway) that's been available over the last few years is derived from that kit.
  3. "Full detail" is open to interpretation. The 956 kit doesn't have the rear brake cooling ducts( while the closed up 962 kit does. Go figure) and other small details. At least it goes together well.
  4. Today I picked up the Tamiya Datsun 240ZG and the reissued Brabham BT44b( which I first built back in the late 70s).
  5. I recall that the kits weren't received with the enthusiasm that Trumpeter expected, There was a large amount of mostly justified criticism about the details of the kits- the too tall windshield in the Nova convertible, the roof length of the Pontiac hardtop, the engine of the Monte Carlo, and the body shape and engine of the Falcon. I believe that Trumpeter took the attitude that " since you don't like our car kits we won't sell them here any more."
  6. Spray the remaining decals with Testor Ultra Gloss clear. It won't harm the decals and keeps them from crumbling.
  7. We only have a certain amount of space so we have to be wise as to its allocation. The room is large but we have to allow for aisle width and door access per the fire marshal and we only have so many tables available to use. We are aware that our attendees would like better access to the contest area which is why we are discussing rearranging the layout for a better show experience.
  8. Macomb County Community College( South Campus) 14500East 12 Mile Road ( at Hayes road) Warren, Mi 48088 I can try a map from home later but be warned-I'm lousy with computer stuff.
  9. An update. We may not have the slot car drags as the owner of the track has sold it. We have a possible line on another track but if it doesn't happen we are discussing moving the contest to the drag track area and deciding what to do with the current contest area.
  10. It would be November/ December 2020.
  11. We got word this past week that our host venue, Macomb County Community College, is re-opening their activities building as of September so we were told that our show could resume this November. As requested by several attendees we will be enlarging the model show display area a bit. To do that we will be slightly reducing the number of vendor tables. Not to worry, the loss will be less that a dozen tables so we will still have about 300 tables. The NNL style show themes will be '70 and '71 muscle cars and Corvettes. There's no added charge to enter the NNL above the show entrance fee of $5. S
