Those front rims are real beauties Mark. I'll add these to the list of 1/16th scale stuff I want to order from you. Nicely done.

Hey Mark,

It was great seeing you yesterday at the Heartland show.  I didn't have as much time to check out your Jewel T as I'd have liked, but it looks even more fantastic in the flesh than it does online.  I can't want to see more updates!

Scott

It was nice to visit with friends again at the Heartland Nats as well as meet new ones too. Had a great time as always, lots of great looking entries and as always not enough money to purchase more of what I wanted.

 

Brad and Chris - all you have to do is give me shout out for some parts. Anyone who visits here on the site can inquire into what I have available.

 

Bill - again, good to talk to you, I always learn things from fellow modelers at these events. Our talks always get me that much closer to entertaining the thought of purchasing a lathe/mill. Your cuda is going to be killer when done!

 

Scott - Our discussions are always enlightening and the parts you are producing will keep me looking at your website regularly. I will be putting the parts I got from you to good use. The brackets we talked about will become a priority to me in order to get the info back to you.

 

In general, thanks for all the kind words from everyone who has commented.

Mark,

 

Love what you've got going here...the old school altered's have always been perhaps my favorite drag racing car.  What was the wheelbase on this car.  I've been doing some reading on some chassis info, it seemed that the old school cars were typically 105"-110".  Does this jive with what you'd read?

I just got a quick look at this beauty and met with Mark today. What a treat to meet you Mark and to see your workshop, builds and progress projects. I picked up a 392 and have something in mind for the bench after my current project.

Brad... that is awesome... I can not wait to see what you have in store foe the 392 engine. I gotta say I am a little Jealous that you got to meet Mark. Hands down his resin engines are the best in the business. And he is a great guy as well.


Mark... have made any more progress on this beauty. Sure miss seeing your work my friend.

It was indeed a real treat to meet with Brad. I really do need to get back on the Jewel T project. I'm very busy with engine orders right now as well as trying to finish up some new & modified parts. Some of those parts are going towards Chris Sobak's order. Scott Popham and I are collaborating on some photoetch pieces that will fit with some of the parts I offer too. Here I thought my summer would be less busy.

Mark... brad is an awesome guy and I love hanging out with him when I can. I will be here waiting for updates when you get back to the bench. I understand being busy with other projects. no rush on my engines at all. I told Mike Garland a while back to let you know that the next time he talked to you I have to get the army vega done first...lol. I think that is some great news about having some photo etch pieces to go with your engines. You know I will buy some... Lol
