  2. no problem, I would be happy to. its a MPC Turbo Bird kit. I used different wheels and omitted the side pipes
  3. I was going to pick this up for my son this weekend, but could not find it. Where did you land it?
  4. Just got back from the funeral home. There was a nice memorial gathering with a very moving service; Tom had been cremated earlier but they brought a container with the ashes for the altar. There were a lot of family photos and displays of a couple dozen of Tom's amazing models, plus his brothers performed Bruce Springsteen's "Terry's Song (They Broke the Mold)", and I pretty much lost it at that point. Many members of the LMMCC were there to offer their condolences. R.I.P. my friend.
  5. It's from the article I was doing for the SLM site, Mike. Yeah, I know! 😀
  6. Looks great. Hairspray method for the whitewash?
  7. Very cool! I never saw one with skirts. Looks good! Sam
  8. Did you check with scale finishes?
  9. Today
  10. Gary, I had had good results with this, Spaz Stix Mirror Chrome.
  11. Long story short, after personal dealings with them combined with other horror stories, I have formed my own personal opinion... They suck
  12. I managed to get a good bit accomplished today since I had a full day dedicated to modeling. I got the complete body wet sanded and polished out which is always time consuming. I also got the trim on the body sprayed, along with the parts of the chassis that needed to be semi-gloss black completed. The last thing I worked on, to feel like I had actually did a good bit of work for the day today, was the interior. I got the Tamiya Photo-etch detail up set for this kit and it is awesome. I had no clue that it included floor mats along with the pedals as well.
