  2. 1/24th Pro Star Wheels

    I stand corrected, I had the pro stars and drag life's mixed. Sorry for any confusion I may have inadvertently caused. Robyn
  3. Lindberg 1929 T Rod Background Info

    Well since nobody has given a correct answer here, I'm going to clear the whole mess up. The only thing Model T about this kit is the name, and the box art car, which is a 23-25 T Roadster. Inside you have your basic Lindberg plagiarized copy of AMT's Ala Kart cab (29 Model A with a 27 T rear section behind the doors), Hemi engine, and wheels. It does have the stock 29 Model A radiator shell. The front axle is copied from the AMT 36 Ford, and the headers from the AMT 25 T hot rod version. The frame and rear axle are Lindberg's concoctions. Here is the original box art... And kit contents. Case closed.

    Yes, I remember a yellow Mk3 Escort with a 460 Ford, think that one ran S/G as well.

    John, You are really inspiring me to try the, little bottle, testors enamels.
  6. I bought some at the Dollar Store. They have no recycle # on them but I glued a piece of sprue to one with Testor's model cement and it stuck real well. Would this mean it IS styrene? It doesn't really matter to me anyway, since I am only using them for color tests.

  8. 1/25 AMT '40 Ford Sedan

    Thank you for the compliment. It would look even better if I could a replacement for the missing header. I have a copy of the March 2018 HRD, but I already know what Moon discs look like. I have Hot Rod Magazines going back to the 40s. And I have photographed plenty of real ones as well. The only Moon discs I can think of that are oversized and completely hide the rim are those on the old Lindberg kits. As you can see by this original issue 40 sedan, the ones that came in the kit are pretty accurate. And yes the 49 Ford comes with some side exiting exhausts, but they are out of scale and don't hook up to anything. The ones that came in the 39/40 kit have a positive mount to the engine and look cool on top of that.
  9. Daytona 500

    I lost interest in NASCAR after Mark Martin retired.
  10. 1/24 Ford GT40 Mk1 engine 3d printed by myself

    It's a bit cheaper if you have an account. I think when I looked at it for me, logged in, it was 46.20ish Euro + 7.80ish shipping, came to 54 Euro....exchanged into Canadian was about $81. Expensive, yes. Super detailed and ultra cool looking yes, still sitting on the fence tho, I knew it would be pricey, but $80 just for the motor is steep. If I was a world class builder and knew putting it in a build would help me win a contest, sure, but alas, I'm not that guy, so $80 to sit in a kit that will be buried ontop of my workbench once completed??? Not sure yet, but I love GT40's so I'm likely to order one.
  11. Well, anyone who can plunk down $11,000.00 for a diecast model has a lot more disposable income than I do.

    doing the tango
  13. That explains why my "Stash" is always a mess.
  14. Escort Pro-Stock

    A guy around here built an EXP with a Boss 429 engine in it. The car had the (stock) EXP body over a rectangular tube frame. As I remember, the engine sat a bit further forward than it would in a Pro Stock (furthest forward spark plug in line with the center of the front wheels) but still went back into the passenger compartment a bit. It did have a stock instrument panel, and generally looked like a drivable car. I never saw it on the street, but it had license plates. The engine was pretty much stock (single four barrel, no scoop sticking through the hood). It was at a few local car shows in the Eighties, but I haven't seen it since.
  15. 57 Chevy Nomad - revell

    Hmm, interesting espo. I was actually looking at getting an "updated" 57 kit just for the chrome. I like the wheels on this but not sure if I'd be buying the same problems chrome-wise or how well the parts would fit.
  16. Escort Pro-Stock

    This is awesome. I love when people put big V8s in small cars.
  17. '32 Phanton -Foose build -update 2/11/18

    Looking forward to more on this one
  18. 1965 Linoln Continental

    Thank You, guys!
  19. 65 Dodge Dart

    Speed City Resin casts a really nice 66 Dart.
  20. I whittled away at the top edge of the firewall so it would conform to the shape of the new top edge, but I have a little more work to do until the fit is just right. I still need to make something on the back/underside where the two pieces meet so they can be permanently, and neatly joined. I also worked on the '57 150 Utility Sedan interior door and quarter panel pieces, shortening them a bit and re-contouring the upper edge a bit to match the AMT body. I still need to integrate the narrower AMT Bel Air dashboard, but I may end up replacing it with the Revell '55 dash if necessary. After test fitting both, it looks like the AMT Sedan windshield and rear window will play nicely with the Revell '57 interior parts, but they are a bit on the thick side. The Revell '57 Sedan windshield and rear window may be substituted and new rear quarter windows made, or I'll thin down the AMT pieces a bit...TBD.
  21. 69 Yenko Nova

    Very nice clean looking build. I like the Corvette style 15X8 Rally Wheels on this.
  22. 57 Chevy Nomad - revell

    On the Wheel and Tires if you're trying to stay somewhat close to the OEM 14 inch wheels you might look at one of the current Revell '57 Chevrolet kits that also offer white wall tires. Any hub caps you might use would cover the incorrect 6 lug wheels in these kits. The Revell '56 Chevy kits would work also. I think that the tires are the same diameter as the '57 models but they are supposed to represent a 15 inch wheel as that is what was used in '56 Chevrolet. .
  23. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA ! I about pee'd myself reading that, thanks for the chuckle Daniel!
  24. 1967 Pontiac Bonneville. 2/20, COMPLETE!!

    Well, Hallelujah!! This project is finally done after messing around with it since the end of July, 2017! Almost 7 months is way off of my target time for a build completion, but I'm already looking forward to the next one! I'll leave this thread with a few shots of the finished engine. I still have to install the antenna & rear view mirror & then I'll get busy shooting a few photos for the "Under Glass" section. You can see it there in the near future. Don't expect any outdoor shots just yet. You know, February in Northern Minnesota & all. Whew!.......Glad that's over! Steve
