Most of you know me.....frugal out of necessity, But I have bit the bullet to get something new to do aside from building out of scrap. I finished the two kits I got for Xmas So, I ordered from the folks who ( even tho I am a seldom customer) have went over and beyond to give good service. I highly recommend them.
http://www.modelcarsandmore.net/
I got these kits in the post today. I got the dragster to get a KILLER engine for the Belvedere. was hoping the street Challenger would have a set of Pro-street tires. But nope.
I'll get some good from what I have. :o)

Clay, if your looking to tub the Plymouth, the kit to get is the AMT Pro-Street Coronet 440/Super Bee. I used that on my 57 Chrysler, which is the same chassis as your Plymouth. It looked like it was a kit when I finished. I will get you a pic or two. I might even have a spare kit in my stash. I will check and see.

So many things you got there Curt!

Here are my new items, wheels for the GTR but thought they would be painted, gutted they come chromed but no black so will have to sort that out.

Decal paper is to try and make some replacements for my Escort Cosworth, hope that works!

Those rims are really cool looking Ash. Good luck with the decals, something I would like to get to doing myself as well.

It looks to be very nice Ash.

Body is nicely in proportion and apart from light seams on the front and rear pans, is pretty near perfect.



The kit supplies two complete sets of tyres for the one set of wheels. Gravel tyres and full loose surface tyres:



Two grilles are supplied also.... round or oblong headlights:











A small P/e fret with seat belt hardware and discs plus some nice looking metal transfers. Also supplied on this fret are two different grille mesh'



Decals (nicely in register and appear dense in colour)

Thanks Al,

That looks a great kit and not needing a transkit because it all comes in one box is even better!

I will get one in a few months

Hold on there Ash!!!

A transkit is available for under the bonnet. Inner wings and front bulkhead. I spotted it a couple of weeks back but forgot to bookmark it. However, Shay has a photo and is confident in coming up with a link.

The kit comes with just the lower part of the engine but Shay also says and upper half is available too.

Watch this space.

No I mean, I have the Fabia and the gravel wheels and suspension comes in a separate purchasable box, costs about £10 (I got mine free though with my kit, their mistake)

We should it would be fun. I'll be building it for another one of my bosses.

I will be building it in this set up used for the Paris/Dakar.


Casing the needed parts for the suspension from this kit.


I'll use the Camel decals from this set and painting the strips as needed.

I'd be up for a members group build guys but it will need to be a few months yet, as my stash is still in the back of the storage container.

Never saw that long wheelbase version of the T16 for the Dakar before Curt, was it a cross between the 205 and 405?
