  1. We're their target audience with their restored offerings and their Retro Deluxe offerings . I , too , am beyond pleased that some of these 'never-to-be-seen-ever-again' kits are finding a revitilised life ! Keep 'em coming , Round2 !
  2. Tamiya Light Gunmetal is quite close . Oddly ( or not ) that was the nomenclature that Dodge used for GA4 Winchester Grey .
  3. That first engine appears to be a 1970 with 49 state emissions ( no C.A.P. breather , but does have a vapour separator adjacent to the fuel pump ) . But , yes , that 4-paddle fan is a no-go for 1968-1971 --- even the LO23 / BO29 models got the 7-paddle fan with a clutch ( de-clutch ) .
  4. Has anyone given consideration to building either the convertible or the hardtop with an Econ-O-Way 225 V6 ? I'm considering doing that with the drop-top ( the hardtop will retain its 330 Rocket / 4-speed ) , but am wondering if there's a resin 225 V6 available ? Would it be 'close-enough' to chop the Buick Electra 225's Nailhead of two of its cylinders ? Maybe the old MPC Jeepster ( Mount N' Goat , recently , IIRC... ) has a convincing oddfire 225 ?
  5. I think that it was the GW3 Sno-White model which was found in-storage .
  6. Those moulds , the AMT Good Year Rallye GT ( still in some kits !!! ) , and the Monogram c.1973 tyres of the same nomenclature --- those should be scapped permanently !
  7. Outstanding work as usual , @StevenGuthmiller! Now , at the risk of being "That guy..." , I must inquire about the fan : That's the base fan for auto / open rear , and would be incorrect for a Dana-equipped model ( if you're using an 8 3/4 rear , you can disregard this info ) . 68_Coronet0011.jpg (840×1200) (hamtramck-historical.com) NOS 1968 1969 CHARGER GTX ROAD RUNNER 426 HEMI 69 340 440+6 A-12 Fan 2863215 | eBay
  8. Especially the two French folks who plopped-down some serious coin for their GW3 and GA4 models respectfully . Now , imagine it's 1974 or 1979 , and you're trying to convince anyone that their gas-guzzling dinosaur --for which high-octane pump-gas was disappearing-- would be worth more than they paid for their house (and then some) .
  9. You are indeed correct ; I stand corrected. Begs the question : Is the stock hardtop's die already cut ? ( asking in-general , not you specifically ) .
  10. At least those are test shots ( first one a 3-D print ) , so corrections can be made before the dies are cut .
  11. I've contacted him via this forum and via his eBay account --- haven't heard back from him . I would love to support not only a fellow forum member , but also an independent manufacturer . Hopefull he'll be back again soon .
  12. Thank to all for your replies ! I was under the impression that it was a 1984 model because of its 1983 release-year . I'll check into those links , @Rodent.
  13. One-of-two which were exported-to France ; the other convertible is GW3 Sno-White [sic] . IIRC , one could order a Dodge , Plymouth , or Chrysler through a Simca dealership (back when the U.S. owned foreign companies , unlike these days...) . I saw the Sno-White car in person in 2005 . It was parked --top-down !-- under a tree at the annual Chrysler show at Woodley Park in Van Nuys . Other than a metric speedometer and lack-of radio ( wouldn't get reception with a U.S. radio in Europe anyhow ) , they're pure Americana .
  14. I picked-up a Buy It Now 1984 Mustang Convertible ( one of my favourite kits from back in the day ) , which I will someday build OOB and close-as-possible to correct . factory stock form . My question is , Does anyone make factory-stock decals for this beauty ? A set with gauge decals would be great , too , but aren't a deal-breaker .
