  1. Past hour
  2. Scratch Rod

    Isn't the whole meaning behind this to look rough? Very cool indeed.
  3. 32 Ford Hiboy MADE IN BRAZIL

    Very nice. I like it.
  4. Plastered

    I quite agree. Not to mention, odds are excellent that the electical wiring will need replacing. That will be worlds easier, with no plaster/lathe.
  5. Scratch Rod

    It looks cool!

  7. 2019 Round2 Car Kit Releases

    Sweet! Seeing it in that color jangled loose some kind of memory. I think I guy in my dorm in college ('70s) drove a Vega in that color.
  8. Electric Hot Rod

    Nostalgia is a fine thing. Appreciation of a finely tuned IC engine as well. But me I'm a realist. I'm down for whatever makes my life easier, makes my life less expensive. I have an 40 mile commute each way. That equates out to 4 gallons of gas each day. We consider it to be a sacrifice for living where and how we want to live. But if something comes along to knock my fuel costs down, I'll be on board in a flash. When the cost of an electric vehicle that can handle my off-the-paved-road commutes, is doable, I will do.
  9. 1969 Dodge Charger Convertable

    I was just rereading some old car mags and there was a story in one about a factory-custom '68 or '69 Charger roadster they built for some exec. It was white, and other than the missing top, seemed to be pretty much stock. ETA: Found a pic of it online.
  10. I painted this Revell Camaro back about a year and 1/2 ago and it got put away because of the 2018 flood. I hadn't worked on it since but took it out and looked at it a couple times so I decided it would be a good little project to finish up while on vacation. Paint is Scale Finished Emerald Turquoise inside and out with Testors clearcoat. on the body. I'm very impressed on how well the windows fit. Not only is there a step for the glass to fit into, the glass is also stepped so it fits almost flush on the outside. Even after foil and paint, it still fits perfectly. The version I'm building is the Nikey car with the dual quad intake. Not really a fan so I found a nice single 4bbl intake instead. Also not keen on the undersize look of the wheels so I'm swapping in a set of TTs from one of the '32 Ford kits. I've got 6 days left of vacation but there's other things I have to do around the house so we'll see if I can actually finish it by the end of the weekend or not. LOL
  11. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    I'm also guessing the kit inside is fine, but if it's not and you can't get satisfaction, let me know. I bought this kit just to cut the wheel openings out of it to graft into an AMT '66 dirt tracker, so if your top is squashed, I'll be happy to swap bodies with you.
  12. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Kit will probably be ok would be my guess. I believe the seller/shipper did not put enough packing material in it. I hope kit is fine. I did get some packages that bad or worse and kit was fine.
  13. 1969 Dodge Charger Convertable

    Thanks guys, this is just off the wall enough that it will make for an interesting finished product!
  14. Welp, today has not gone as expected.........

    They already suggested paying $136/month, which would pay it off in July '22, which I would rather not let run that long. What I may do is that ince I get my car insurance paid (most of what I would have given Dad for the $600+ on my 2 went towards the heart dr. bills from this visit), I plan on paying around $100/wk as much as possible. Still need to see what I'm going to do with my Jeep too, it's still has no brakes and rust juse keeps getting worse.

  16. Kit part ID needed

    Well, I found it. Revell 99 F150. Guessing it came in the SVT Lighting kit, but there is no mention of it in the instructions. But its the only modern Ford I have. Thanks all. Snake, my thoughts exactly...
  17. Today
  18. I just wanted to let everyone know that the dually wheels are available now and I have, since posting this build, created the whole front suspension for this conversion and it is also available at https://www.rookieresin.com/ Thank you all! Bill
  19. 2019 Round2 Car Kit Releases

    Just seen this one in June at Chevrolet Nationals in Carlisle, PA.
  20. I've driven trucks like this. 3/4 ton with the 6. Old, slow and beat up, they soldiered on into the early 2000's. Even now, I still see a few on the road, and more sitting forgotten in the side yards and back lots of farms and oil companies around town. In many ways this build represents the "Real American Truck". Purchased with no options and the baseline motor, thrashed from the first day, they worked & worked until they just flat wore out. These are the "Invisible Trucks". Great Tribute, Chuck!

  25. Volvo 240

    Yes they were really cool and if I remember right was done on a very tight budget but still managed to be competitive. Thanks for all the kind comments.
  26. Kit part ID needed

    Dunno, but one could build a whole spider-themed rod around that thing!
