Post by Casey Michael Littma » Wed, 11 Sep 1996 04:00:00



        To all who may be interested:

        I just received Hobby Heaven's latest (Sept. '96) catalog, in which
AMT's March '97 "Buyer's Choice" kit releases are listed:

        '36 Plymouth Modified- From the "picture" it looks to be the same
chassis as the '35 Chevy Tobias Modified released in the previos BC series,
bu tthis time with a '36 Plymouth body shell.

        '59 El Camino- Hmmm, will it include the camper top option???

        '55 Chevy Nomad, 1/16th scale

        Parts pack, includes: Allison engine, wheels, hot rod frame, drag
accessories.

        Anyone have any info on these, in particular the parts pack?

        Oh ya, the Nomad is priced at $20.55 and the other three are priced
at $9.95.

        Casey

Curiosity question -- how close are these body shells to stock -- would I be
able to convert one to a nice stock model with any sort of ease?  How about a
conversion to a semi-stock rust-bucket junker?

Any suggestions?

Sorry, Brooks - not even close - most have hogged-out wheelwells, none
have stock hood, grille, bumpers or chassis - these were just shells
over tube-frame pure racing chassis - would be like converting the
Monogram NASCAR Monte Carlo to a replica stock..
Let me rephrase - if you can do it, "you're a better man than I"

I had one of these a real long time ago...I wont tell you how long ago
tho...Actually, you wont be able to convert it at all. No fenders or hood to
speak of, just roof, doors, and deck lid. It is a very nice kit tho, with a ton
of parts. It will take some experience and skill because it has classic AMT
period fit (bummer).
