The unbiased judges comes into play in the event of a tie, that it all.

Coin toss would do as well, but OK.

 

However, I think Jant has a point.  This being a nice friendly helpful place where they will bend over backwards to keep us happy (unlike where we came from) maybe a politely worded request to the right person at the appropriate time could get the number of poll options raised?

Here is some progress on my Viper.  Got the engine done, is all box stock except I added some spark plug wires coming from the coil packs.  Technicaly the coil covers should be red, but i thought they would look pretty cool with carbon fiber on them.  I'm hoping to add a few more hoses once the motor is installed.  Hope you guys like what you see so far.

Yep, lookin good, and ditto on Paul's question, I'm curious too. To me it looks like the rubber coating from some electrical wire.

Thanks guys!  The plug boots are just some left over rubber tubing from when I built the 1/16 General Lee, and I thought it looked decent enough as 1/24 plug boots.

I just simply don't have the time to build anymore

Bummer Andy. I've been feeling the pinch lately too, almost 4 weeks since I've modeled. But there's a lot of year left.

Wow Jan, that looks absolutely brutal. It screams power and aggression. Nice work on the pro-chargers. I wanted to do the same on mine but I don't have the skills or knowledge to make it convincing.

While I'm waiting for warmer weather to clear the Pantera, decided to start my second build, straightened the body and chassis..

Jan, that thing is looking killer, shaping up to be one of the more fearsome builds, hope to see it at the starting line.

 

As for myself I'm working on my cars, well I haven't started on the GTX yet but I'm working on the hot rod, I should have something to show in a few days.

 

Nick, could you please get me on the entry list? I just noticed I'm not there yet, my enties are a 32 Ford Sedan and a 67 Plymouth GTX. :)

I can do that, didn't notice, haven't had much time lately, been working 10 1/2 hour days and working on my 1:1 project on weekends.

Since the "Cormaro" is a cut 70's funny car body, the front is, in real life, only a fiberglass facade to imply the look of a Camaro. The grill, lights & bumper are molded in and relatively flat.

 

Front-Face-Original_zpseb061aa8.jpg

 

I didn't think I could make it look real so I exaggerated it by extending the grill opening and drilling out the fake headlights...

 

Front-Lights1_zpsf55a53e5.jpg

 

Buckets from the Revell '53 Chevy fill the holes and contribute to the extruded look of the front end.

 

Front-Lights2_zpsc74b4586.jpg

 

Almost looks like a fish face saying, "OMG we're gonna win!"
