Loved this model Randy, I thought it should have been the winner at the meeting of course with all due respect to my boys Lyle and Mike :roll:

Very nice, Indeed!
How'd you do the grill?

Hi and thanks, Steve. I cut out the kit grille (pin vise drilling and dremel), and epoxied the Model Car Garage p.e. grille behind the shell. I also prayed a lot that the shell would stay intact the whole time I was butchering it up. Installing a billet grille in my 1/1 truck was easier!

Even good photos like these don't do the model justice.

Randy and his son churn some kickin' projects off their bench.

As for his concerns about a bird potentially ruining his photo sessions...think about it. Some guys agonize for hours about how to get that kind of realisim. Roll with it! :)

Very nice '55! Nice blend of C6 touches to it.
