Topics I've Started

1937 Cord

The latest in my "classic" phase, got the Monogram kit off ebay.  I'm pretty happy with it, the engine is more detailed than I expected.  An iconic car that was so far ahead of it's time.  Comments appreciated, thanks for looking!

1963 Ford Galaxie 500

So i was going through the stash the other night and came across this kit.  I opened the box to find it 90% finished, all it needed was foil and final assembly.  So 2 nights of foiling and here it is.  The paint's a little rough but it looks pretty good on the shelf.  Thanks for looking and comments welcome!  (I know there is no outside mirror Harry, there wasn't one in the box  :o )


Minicraft 1/16 Cadillac Town Car parts

Bought this on eBay, less than honest description of condition.  I'm missing the front seat and the rear end (differential).  I don't have a stash of larger scale parts, if someone has some spares please let me know?  I've got plenty of 1/24-1/25 parts to trade.  Thanks!

My latest completion.  I really enjoyed this kit, Revell did a great job, everything fit well and it went together easily.  Comments welcome, thanks for looking!

1932 Chrysler LeBaron

I've lately shifted gears a bit and taken to the big cars of the '30s.  I've found a few at reasonable prices on eBay and begun building.  This is one I finished last night.  An MPC kit, the only thing I would do differently is remove the "working steering" feature that moves the wheels via the steering wheel.  The parts are too spindly and bind up too easily for this to work well.  A big straight 8 engine and lots of chrome make for a striking vehicle, I think.  Comments welcome, thanks for looking!
