          The price of a good resin kit has usually kept me from buying one. I guess I don't want to build one bad enough. It is good to see Studebakers getting some more attention.

            If I'm not mistaken, the builder of the truck was (is?) an SDC member who has an award winning 2R-5 and is currently into "Micro-cars" (Isetta, Messerschmitts, etc.). The mentioned reference material is VERY large. Excellent work Larry.

              Since all of you modelers are probably looking I'll hijacking this thread please.
              Anybody know the story on those (resin cast?) GT Hawk shells that Newman & Altman used to have in their display case, and are they still available somewhere?
              At the time it kinda looked to me like you could perhaps use that shell and one of the AMT Lowey kits to create a GT.

                  WOW Jeff, Thanks!
                  ...but I seem to remember the N&A version to have had the window areas open, and not all the gunk underneath.

                      Looks like it was masked for painting.

                        That stuff in the windows and around the wheel openings is casting flash that has to be removed. It usually is very thin and some resin casts have less than others.

                            The latest issue of Scale Auto Enthusiast had a Round 2 ad with the Mr Speed 53 Studebaker kit in it. It said coming soon.
                            Their site lists September.

                              I think it is really neat that they have restored the original parts and gone back to the early look for the packaging. I would probably buy at least one of these, but I already have so many of the other issues that I can't build them all.
