Miss Deal F/C...fishing around
Posted by moparace on Monday, December 11, 2006 2:53 AM
I posted this in the Builders Corner, but thought I might put it here as well in the hope of getting more bites...

Just ordered me this kit by Revell. Was wondering if anyone has built this and could post some pics for reference? I am guessing it will be a fairly simple kit, but I want to really detail it up to the max, so am trying to hunt down original pics as well. Have Googled it, but not much there...
Any suggestions??Cool

Well it may not have been a "real" car, but was probably inspired by something from back in the day. Take for instance this photo. While it's not lettered up, it sure is pretty close.

Very nice Pic Capsgs,
I should have seen it two years ago, as I built a Saltflat´ s "Top Chopped" Stude Starliner whose result I was never happy with...

I think I should consider rebuild this kit in a new fashion :-)

Cheers

Chassis makes a good basis for any number of gassers/early funnies. There's been a few on the site recently. I've got an early seventies British MK 1 capri funny car (based on Santa Pods gloworm funny car) on the drawing board thats gonna have this chassis under it

Yeah, cheers for that pic Caps.
Anyone know the kinda detail level in the kit? Good (no need for aftermarket), Bad (get ready to spend lots or do some Scratch'n), or Middling?

The kit is a challenge that is very rewarding. The engine blocks will cause a few curse words. Once assemblied it is a great little Hemi (the size smaller than the 392), the interior seems spartan, the front end is a pit of a challenge, the rear end needs to be swapped as it seems too big to be in scale. Is it a good kit? I got at least five waiting to be built or scavenged for parts. If I find one at a show for $10 it goes home with me.

It can use some aftermarket parts but it builds into a great shelf model as-is.

Got my kit today. Yay! I read here that the interior was sparse. This is true. I also figured for myself that it would be a fairly simple build, which is what I wanted after sending myself mad with my Coronet build. But OMG!!! I never had a kit with 10 or 12 individual parts in the motor alone! Valve train, crank, individual cylinder banks...
This is gonna send me blind! O, well, I'll keep ya's posted with the progress... Better go warm up the magnifying glass...Big Smile

Sounds like SPAM. Looks like SPAM. Tastes like SPAM.

I'm glad I didn't step in it.

This kit was designed by Bob Paeth after I left Revell. Bob discovered a wooden pattern in1/10 scale in the Revell archives. Revell was recovering from its giant slot racing debacle and did not have a lot of tooling money. 

Bob combined the body shell with some of the Revell Custom Car Parts kits that I designed including the 392 Chrysler Hemi. All of the parts were already tooled except for the Studebaker body shell. The chassis parts were accurately scaled models of real car parts available at that time. Nicely tooled by Revell. I loved Bobs name “Miss Deal” as it represented what created the kit.

If I had known about the 53 Studebaker pattern, I would have turned it into a complete kit with engine and interior. I did run across a 57 Chevy chassis pattern that had been started during the Revell/AMT 1953-55 association that not a lot of people know about.

hope this gives you some background info on the Miss Deal kit.
