Nice start, and I really like the color choice. I've got a soft spot for these, my first car was a '63 Chevy.

Was not a very good vest and why do you swim with a rock. Make you wonder what their I.Q was. 

 

They probably double dog dared them....


In Topic: Current MCM

I know it can be upsetting when someone or something you're waiting for is late, it drives me crazy as well. However, some things are worth waiting for. My first granddaughter that is now two days late is one of them, MCM magazine is another. I personally don't subscribe, our postal service here sucks, however, I NEVER miss an issue. My LHS holds a copy for me so I don't miss an issue. If all we had was SA, which is a fine product on its own, this hobby would be missing a valuable resource.

I agree that this magazine may be slanted to the personal interests of Gregg. But regardless of who was in charge this would probably be the case. If it was my baby, the articles in it would probably reflect my tastes as well, regardless of how hard we try to include something for everyone. Its just human nature.

Regardless of how late it may be I'm personally going to wait. No one tells me how quickly, nor how often I have to finish my next model. And I'm not going to even ask someone who has the health problems that Gregg does how to run his magazine, which is his baby.

Remember patience is a virtue, cultivating it will do us all some good.

Now............back to the workbench....................

Harry,

 

     I have always enjoyed watching your builds. The craftsmanship is inspiring. The way you take a model, and detail them, brings them to life. I've learned a number of things watching you build these scale works of art. This one is becoming my

 

favorite. The craftsmanship you are putting into this wooden body is amazing. It's making me want to dig out the only 1/16 scale kit I have in my stash, a 1913 Model T Van, and build it. I've got far too many on the workbench now, so it will have to

 

wait. I want to thank you for taking the time and effort to share your build process with us. We benefit so much for it, and these threads like this one are the reason many of us are here.

 

                                                                                                                  Thanks again, Harry. And amazing job, keep up the good work.

I wouldn't be picky Kurt. I'm not a rivet counter. As long as it looks the part, it's something that's not an AMT trailer kit, it would be worth it. Like I said, I'll take 1 with a Canadian spread or no spread, as soon/if they are available.

 

 

A '53 footer has somewhere in the range of about 6500 to 7000 rivets,..........just in case you wanted to know.
