Didn't mean, you are old, I just meant that it's great when someone who has built models before is coming back to the bench. There came the "old modeler". Sorry. :)

Yes, I put you to entry list. But tell me the make and model and year model, I put it to there also. Like '65 Chevrolet Impala, for example. Thank you.


It'll be a 57 Chevy Nomad.

Niko....This CBP sounds good to me.I'm seeing some cool short track projects being laid out...that's awesome. I just finished the Monogram(1952)midget kit. I was wondering if it would be eligible for this CBP?

Well, I'm not sure, because it's build which is allowed to this build but if I say "yes" I'm afraid that there comes 10 just finished builds... Not sure about it... But one thing, I'm sure. If you build another one and post some pictures from it to this topic, then you are in and I think that if you build another one, I will get you in with that Monogram 1952 Midget also. But I think about it. :D

Thank you for your reply Niko. I was just curious. I'll try to get one finished in time. Right now I've got to many other projects going. Thanks again for the reply.

Put me down for either a 53 Stude pro mod or a 53 Stude delivery sedan drag. I can't start until after Feb though.

Well, here's a mock-up of progress.

I was happy with the testors decal maker til, I put the decals on and found that the white didn't appear. I've had to follow up with paint and it needs a second coat. :lol:

The white probably didn't appear because the paper may have not been paper with a white carrier. If I do remember those Testors decal kits correctly, they only came with clear decal paper. Since most all home printers don't print white, the white areas will be clear unless you have a paper with a white carrier.

WOW, that looks very good!!! Very nice paintjob on it and decals are nice also.

Today, I'm going to get Fairy Power Spray, then I'll try to strip the paint off from the Corvette. Now I think, I'm going to start building from other parts...

Thank you, Keith and Greg for entry! You are in.

That Regal looks really good with those tires and wheels, it's going to be very interesting project. Here in Finland, on the 80's were two Buick Regals with six cylinder engine, they ran in Stock. (Drag Cars). Have no idea, where they are right now... Your project looks good to me.

That Toyota project looks very interesting too, I'm not a fan of those, but when it's a race car, it's very interesting. There are not so many parts in the kit, or is there everything what comes with the kit in the picture.?

Now just waiting for more pictures from every build here...

Corvette is still waiting, but still lots of time left to build it.

-Niko

i didnt take a pic of like 2 or 3 parts trees. it comes with a fairly nice detailed interior bucket, roll cage, kind of a working suspenion, but no engine. luckily i have one that does come with an engine that ill be using. most of whats in the pics are what ill actually be using. the kit also comes with stock interior parts, like front seats ect. the only thing i don't like is the lack of N2 race parts. a fuel cell would have been nice, other than that. its an average kit from aoshima.

heres the look im going for. there are no reference pics of the actual car, so ill be using magazines that i have of these cars as reference

there is no logo of wheel company. so im using thes SSR MKIII's on slicks. although im not to fond of the front, so i might have to snag the wider 2 from another wheel kit i have.
