I think is looks pretty close myself. Perhaps it's just my lousy vision.Mark Hosaflook said:I hope the pictures are not being true to the car but either the windows look way too small of the door area is way too thick. Maybe it's an optical illusion? Perhaps after paint and woodgrain it will be great as I had hoped.
I didn't even know RC2 made a truck bed for that casting. It was the first time I seen it. :thumbsup: That's what "The BOLT" should be used for. :thumbsup:kanabrew said::thumbsup: I like the Red Wine Truck. Reminds me of the Shopko and Kentucky Derby Trucks. Can't wait to get it when available. Gary
I don't think it's available yet. I checked redtruckwines.com(must be over 21) and they had no info about them. I did become a FoRT while I was there. So I hope they send me a email when they arrive. :thumbsup:70XR7 said:Anyone know how you can get that Red Truck?
I believe that is related to my comment about it being shortened. They had to lose length and the horizontal component of that arch was a casualty.ranchero said:I agree that the '73 Chevrolet wagon looks a bit off. To me, the problem is in the tailgate area. There is not enough arch in the roofline/"D" pillar area.
The only way they can make a correctly proportioned car and have it fit in their package is to make it smaller than 1/64th. Everyone always complains when they cut back the scale so they stick with the same size but they actually modify the design, shrinking certain details, stealing space from some and not from others. That leaves a car that looks at first glance to be 1/64th but upon closer inspections, many details are not quite right.BluntFronts said:I always wonder how they (any diecast company) can make proportional errors when all you have to do is look at some good pictures to see the actual car, and then project side, front, rear, and top views onto the soft prototype before the design is finalized.
