  2. 1941 Willys Pro Street

    Looks great!
  3. Great work! This would be a typical stock vehicle of the period. Very nice photography too!
  4. WIP Hasegawa taqa-Q Toyota 88c

    I would love to see what a box stock build by a guy with your talent would look like. I would also think you could easily get it done in a week if you didn't have anything else going on. Thanks and you read my mind. I was going to ask if I should apply some Dull-Coat. How much should I apply? These tires have such a low profile there is not much room for anything else. I've read where people drybrush some white paint to weather them a bit and I might try that. I'm also going to apply a little bit of a wash to the center of the wheels.

  6. "The Stig Collection" -Porsche 911 Turbo

    Nice engine detail.
  7. News of Revell molding preparing in US

    The Asian companies are thriving at the moment. Probably because they focus on say 1980's and later cars which still has some major gaps. American cars from the 70's and earlier are well over done.
  8. '70 Mustang Mach 1/ Boss 302

    That is some really good detailing for your first time.

  17. AMT 1923 Model T Van - What a Mess!

    Like Andy said, it's looking good. What were you expecting from a worn out tooling anyway?
  18. News of Revell molding preparing in US

    There's always somebody announcing that the sky is falling and lamenting the end of the "hobby".The model car segment is only a small slice of the modeling pie. If you haven't paid attention lately, there are a slew of new manufacturers pumping out armor and aircraft kits at an unbelievable rate. Car modelers are pining for the next two or three releases or reissue of some long forgotten kit for the year from one company. Meanwhile, treadheads and wingnuts are treated to at least six-ten new releases every month or two. If the cheapskate car modelers were willing to pony up the simoleons for better quality, there'd probably would be more new tooling and even greater variety. But, no. It's the eternal cry of "Oh, man! They're raising the price to "X" bucks! They can't do this to us! They're gonna price themselves out of business!" So? They can. They will. They most definitely won't.
  19. AMT 1923 Model T Van - What a Mess!

    Looks good so far Garry. This kt was first issued in 1976 or 1977 amd has not aged well apparently.
  20. AMT 32 Ford Tudor

    Very nice!
  21. What Did You Have for Dinner?

    I'm making you an honorary Greenpoint Native. You fit right in. Now, I'm going to apply for dual American-Polish citizenship for myself and my son. I found out that anyone with a Polish heritage can do this.
  22. This is my Fujimi Enthusiast Porsche 911 Turbo. Its totally detailed, and since NONE of these Enthusiast Porsches has hinges for their hoods, I had to SB my own.
  23. News of Revell molding preparing in US

    Gotta disagree just a little. While the hobby has shrank to what it is compared to years ago, I wouldn't call it an end of an era. The hobby is still alive and well in Europe and Asia (look at their shows), and one difference may be that they're offered a lot more choices in modern cars than we are here. The Modehaus? Don and Carol had one thing that will strike us all-------they're getting older and now saw the need to retire. I look no further than the last show where I saw them in person (Toledo Show 2015), and they had a line a mile long of folks waiting to buy something from them. Not to mention the sheer avalanche of orders that they got when they announced their closing. The hobby is still alive and well, and look no further than the explosion of 3D printing in the last few years. So while we may not see the burgeoning releases of new tooled models like in the old days, I say that we're heading in a different direction..........I wouldn't necessarily call it the 'end'.

    what I think is awesome.. is the flat line stream liner with a flathead V8, making a record of 302 mph,, pretty cool for a flathead v8 that only put out 60 hp
  25. What Did You Have for Dinner?

    You reminded me of something I used do back in Poland when walking (with couple of buddies) back home from grade school. (yes, we walked couple of kilometers, with no supervision, or school buses ,or crossing guards). Anyway, my Grandma used to pack lunch for me, which usually consisted of couple of small bulkie rolls with smalec (lard). The lard had skwarki (little pieces of bacon leftover from the melting process) in it for a bit of a crunch. I didn't eat them at lunch break. I kept them until about half way back home where there was a little vegetable stand. Among other things they had an oak barrel full of delicious sauerkraut! I would ask the lady for about 2 pennies worth of sauerkraut. She would put a piece of wax paper on the old fashioned scale and with wooden tongues put down a pinch of the kraut. I woudl then take it off the scale, open up my lardy rolls and make them into a lard and kraut sandwich. Those were delicious!
