I have all the photos of the Ohrberg era, and I'm pretty sure it's one of his I'm using. The kit chassis compared to the AMT is shorter by 3/4". Way undersized for 25th, but right about on for 30th scale.
I know some guys lose their nut if they see a 24th scale part on a 25th scale car, imagine building a 25th scale engine for a 30th? Speaking of the engine, it is a near perfect match in most regards to the AMT version, except the AMT is WAY better detailed.
SO, unless the Orhbergs or "GAS" gets back to me and confirms the chassis length, I have a choice.
A: I can build the body to look right on the stock AMT chassis
2: I can build the body to scale, and alter the chassis to fit it's dimensions, in a fit of hope nobody will notice!
I am going to try and get a photo account for posting here in a little bit. I see now how difficult these threads can be without pictures to follow! I think it was George Carlin who said "I'm a man, I need a chart, a pie graph, some sort of logarythm to follow."
Well I don't care WHO it was that said that... he was right. Hang on.
