    Don't know if they are still available...but "Jimmy Flinstone" was making resin Conestoga's (1/24th) also. Actually..they are sedan delivery wagons, but windows can easilly be formed.

    I have a couple. One is already a slot car, drag racer. One "may be" (if I ever finish it) an RC car, and the last will be a road going slot car.

    This body needs the AMT, C/K model for the details to finish it.

    I'm working with a friend who has a 3D printer to create a model of my 63. If I ever finish this project, I imagine that making a 64 wouldn't require too much tweaking to the 63 3D model.

    Anybody remember the cast GT bodies that Jeff Newman had in a display case in the old building?
    If so, what wreathe details on those, 1/25 I thought?

    The "C" body is available in 1/25 scale plastic, in the Revell "Miss Deal" funny car kit. It can be built as a street '53 coupe with parts from a more common AMT hardtop kit. "Miss Deal is molded in a grape color that may be hard to cover, though. There are several on ebay. Search "revell miss deal".
    I'm collecting parts and materials for a special Duesenberg model with a resin body. Can someone tell me if resin kits require special glues or paints? Is there a web site about working with them?

    It's nice to see a GT Hawk kit being offered. Something different.

    I have one of the GT Hawk slot car kits. Mine is blue with red interior.
    They show up on eBay every so often.

    Neither of my '62 Hawks (1 early, 1 late) have breather caps on the valve covers, though.
    What to do for the dual exhaust?

    When looking closer, I came across this on another site (DROOL!):


    I'll bet somebody around here has one of those.
    I remembered that there was a post on the Toy Studebaker Collectors Club forum about it. I know somebody who has one too. They also made a slot car version of it but it's pretty rare.

    Is it just the camera angle, or does that resin GT look like it has a way too tall grill area?

    It looks like they may have used the Pic of the Prototype '62 GT with the non-production ROUND Parking Lights to copy.

    Missing Link Resins has two new resin 'kits' that used the 1953 Studebaker hardtop as the donor. The 1st one is a 1953 'C' coupe. It only comes with the body as this uses the base kit for everything else. The 2nd is a 1962 GT Hawk. The Hawk comes with a few more pieces. For those that haven't worked with resin, they require a bit more prep work.
