  1. Great job on the headlight conversion. I built this custom in 1988 when the kit was new, and I hated the headlights even then; so I used cut down Monogram Monkees GT convertible lights to spruce it up a bit. The new tool Revell lights should look a lot better.
  2. Outstanding and very accurate, hard to imagine that was a '63 convertible.
  3. It looks like the rear wheel wells needs to go back about 3 scale inches, while the rear 1/4 panels need to be lengthened a bit less, say 1.5 scale inches. Hmm. Less work than I thought.
  4. Pretty sure I've seen that car and the story in a magazine. Hemmings Muscle Machines?
  5. Greg Wann, the Master Caster has the grille without the lights. PM him for more info.
  6. Looks very nice, I like the factory blue color with the black and white interior.
  7. Thanks again to everyone for the positive feedback. I like to do these 1:32 scale cars as a break between 1:25 builds, just sort of relaxing and low pressure. I think the next one will be the Lindberg '77 Thunderbird. The front overhang on that one is too short, so more slicing is in order there.
  8. To fix warps, try dipping the part of the body that needs to be moved into a pan of simmering (small bubbles) water for a few seconds. Bend it to just past the proper shape, then while you are holding it, put it under cold running water or dip it into a pan of ice water. You might have to repeat the process a few times to make it perfect, but it pretty easy to do, and then everything lines up and glues down well.
  9. Love the look of the black hardtop, so sleek. The red Crown Victoria is brush painted? Could have fooled me, that paint has great self leveling characteristics. Great builds!
  10. Very nice job, and PDQ considering all the work.
  11. A Mopar guy on another forum pointed out to Greg that there should be a fender separation line at the rocker. We both agreed. so here is the final detail. Greg should be claying up the master as we speak.
  12. Thanks for the offer, John. I just PMed Michael, we will see what happens. We don't recast without permission, here's hoping that he says yes.
  13. Pretty sure that is where I remember seeing them. Looks like he was last here two years ago. Yes, I'd like a set for a basic Demon I am planning to build. If I had a set, we would cast them - with permission from the creator - and include them with the transkit. I bought a set of the '63 Ford dog dishes from RaSti, they are very nice indeed. Those Plymouth caps he has would be perfect for a base Duster.
  14. I did look there. He has the Monaco/van wheel covers, but not these. I could ask him, though.
  15. Possibly the nicest builds I've seen on all three kits, not very surprising considering the builder.
  16. I remember that someone offered these wheel covers not long ago, but I don't remember who it was. Does anyone know who has them?
  17. One of the cleanest builds I've seen on that kit. The engine bay and stance are really nice.
  18. This is shaping up to be one spectacular build. Interiors of this era were unmatched in style and intricacy, IMO.
  19. Thanks, we'll keep that in mind.
  20. Thanks everyone for the nice words.
  21. Hey, if anything, that makes it all the more impressive. Did you make the hood too?
  22. Wow, another great build with perfect proportions and fit. The tight fit of the doors to the body is especially noteworthy, rarely seen in a diecast model. Hard to imagine it was a presidential limo.
  23. Put the finishing touches on this car yesterday, before the Moonlight club meeting. The Aurora kit is just terrible, approaching if not equaling Palmer levels of terrible. I had one of these years ago mint unbuilt in the box and my intention was to try to correct it, as it's the only Cyclone kit of this vintage ever made. But the kit's value and my level of patience at the time were not lining up, so I sold it and waited for a glue bomb to bubble to the surface. When it did a year ago, I scooped it up and took stock of what I had to start with. Which was even scarier looking than th
