Bruno Roy Is this kit similar (reissue) to the one sold by Model Hobbies: Magnifier 1/12 Ford GT40 MKII Le Man Winning GT Coupe # 00019?

Chaz Gordon Just received this from the Magnifier 2020 Rebox release. The packaging is devoid of any mention of Ford, or GT40, Methinks someone isn't officially licencing it. However, I got my GT40 kit, so I'm Happy.

Peppy
Does this Revell/Mongram kit have parts to build the engine and transaxle?
Are these the same molds of the IMC/Testors kits?

Bozzer Research later revealed, that I have a part of history. After reading a story about it, I found it more compelling, than the actual Le Mans win. It's a truly fantastic story indeed

Peppy What part of Pa. Bozzer? I'm from Tunkhannock.
I'd given my arm at $6.00 buddy.

GT's.

Bozzer Rice's Flea Market. It's better on warmer days. I've had some real bargains on there! Picked up a cheap airbrush, with a decent compressor, for 20 bucks. Only used once, for cake decorating! Mrs lives it, with her Neo! Just head for the 202 and New Hope, it's not too far buddy.
18. May, 22:55
Bozzer Holy smoke Peppy, you don't live too far from my brother in law, in Wellsboro! Some beautiful country, you've got on your front door buddy! I have a soft spot for Allentown. Mainly because of its history, and of course, the Mack museum. And let's not forget that's where the closest Hobby Lobby is! Small world my friend
18. May, 23:06
Bozzer Have a read of that lads. That's the story that inspired me to stop, and get things right.
18. May, 23:33
Peppy I apologize for my tardiness, Bozzer. Yeah Mansfield is probably 90 minutes away and Wellsboro is a bit over the hill by about another 12 miles or so. Have you been to the Grand Canyon outside of Wellsboro. Haven't made it myself, they say it is worth the trip.
How about, IPMS Region 2, I believe this year is tentative in October in Batavia, NY. 1st and 2nd or 11th-12th, can't rightly remember.
26. May, 22:11
Bozzer Peppy, I currently reside in the UK. I plan on moving out there in the New Year. Well, until this pandemic hit. My plans are still the same, but it will probably be a little bit longer than I expected. I've not had the pleasure of the Grand Canyon yet. I'll speak to my bro and ask him why he's not told me about this place? I try to get around, when I'm over there, but the most I drove, was the 8hrs upto Niagara. That's a long trip, with two women in the car! Lol, I'm a hero though, so I did it. ;)

Getting ready to start this one. I am on the road so I am getting some research in order. Anyone else notice that the instructions show the dash for GT40 P/1075 (1967/68 winner) as oppose to P/1046? Anyone build this model recently? How did you fix the dash? When I get home I plan on cracking this one open and actually looking at the included dash. I will be a little disappointed if its the 1075 dash :-/

Wiggus I would love to build this again. It's the only kit I've seen of the GT40 Prototype. I built it as a kid in the mid 70's. I can still remember that it was delicate, finicky, and out of my league.

Steve Wilson It's the only Car that " I " know of...
That as you accelerated the front end of the Car Rose, and the faster you went, not only did it rise higher, but you felt yourself being G-forced into the seat and the G-force got greater the faster you went. I've driven some cars in my time, but the GT-40 was a special experience. I can fully appreciate why it beat the Ferrari at Le Mans and why Enzo had a love/hate relationship with it.
For me it was an memorial experience. The Car was owned by the Son of the architect who designed Centre Point in London, who was himself also an architect. I was a part time LP & 7" record dealer at the time and he was a record collector, I ran an Off Licence in Clapham he was a customer, we became great friends...
