I haven't chimed in for awhile but wanted to applaud. This build is a great inspiration. The ideas you have come up with are amazing. This build is going to end up in a museum some day.. Keep it going.

I think it was the Little Red Wagon as well. What a cool thread though.

 

I can say that I have had the honor of being friends with "Outlaw Ed Jones" who immortalized the Jolly Rancher wheel standing stage coach. 


In Topic: What was the best model kit you ever got for Christmas?

02 January 2014 - 06:21 AM

My best ever...

I believe it was 1975. Don Garlits front engine dragster. "Wynns Jammer"  

Wish I could find a photo of the box art.

 

All the body panels were clear. If I remember, the oil pan was clear as well and the crank shaft was a separate piece glued to the bottom of the engine so it was visible. Also that was my first kit that had a real rubber blower belt.

I was so careful putting it together that I actually got the crankshaft to turn in the engine. Not that it mattered, later when the blower belt went on because none of the rest of the pulleys turned. But I knew that I made it happen.

 

A purely magical day..

Very Nice. I built a pair of the re-release McLarens a while ago. This kit has  lot more detail. Looking forward to more progress photos
