  1. Past hour
  2. very nice combination from paint and interior. like it! Looks really nice in the sun. well done! the only Thing...perhaps you can Change the really massive antennastick to a thinner one? for example, i use 0.5 Diameter metal if it is in my opinion too thick.
  3. Mid-Atlantic NNL 05/11/19

    Like I mentioned to you at the show JC....I was into TROG before there even was a TROG. My first builds as an adult modeler returning to the field back in the 90s were subject matter that wouldve looked at home on the dry lakes back in the post war period. Guess that makes me a bona fide TROGlodyte!
  4. Victoria Day Speedfest

    Thank you for the great pictures. Nice to see a Dodge back in race trim again.
  5. Lambo Silhouette

    very nice - well done! Not often to see one built
  6. Dandy Dick Landy cars done!

    They look great. You can almost smell the Cigar smoke from here.
  7. Third Celebrity Death this Week

    Yeah, I would be devastated if I had a cat pass away that young. Nearly 10 years ago, I had one go.....he wasn't quite 10. Tore me up for weeks. He had liver failure and by the time I discovered what was wrong with him it was too late. My Dad had a cat that lived to be 23. She was a tiny thing, but it wasn't dwarfism as far as I know. I didn't know about Peggy Lipton till a couple days ago. I too am of that 'certain age' and remember her very well from "The Mod Squad".
  8. Freightliner FLA (fsba) 1/25

    Thank you vince, that info helps indeed, thank you for that. Later i found out that there are 2 sizes, the 2" and 3,5" kingpin. Ok guys, i made some little progress on this one. Everything of the chassis is painted now, and i attached the wiring for the brakes and air supply. The engine is in between the chassis and after placing the engine, i could attach the batterybox on his support. Then the exhaust pipe and a cover for this exhaust what i used from the CTM-set. On the back i exchanged the AMT mud flaps with the CTM mudflaps, because these mudflaps are much thinner and nicer than the thick ones. For these mud flaps i had to make new supports. For the trailer wires i still need to make the connectors. With these connectors i will make coloured rings for the red and blue wires, I could not find a suitable size of these coloured wires. For the front wheels i will use bud hole rims. I have some 1/24 rims and i converted them into a 1/25 version. Later i will look wich one looks better for this Freightliner, the standard AMT rims, or the modified 1/25 rims. And together with the cab...... Ok guys, that's it for today, then i will start to finish the front grill and make a start with the 2 bumpers and lower grills. The small cabine details will be attached when the cabine has been permanently installed, this is an easier and safer way to do with the small details, instead to pick up the cab and have the risk that something will break off ........... at the very last moment. To be continued. Hermann.
  9. Printed trailer

    Looks like a half way good starter though, better than not having one at all. The $110.00 is a bit scary though!! WOW.... Thanks for the info!!!
  10. Partial to Monte Carlos too

    Not a kit you see being done often anymore. The interior picture looks as if the hood in the background that you added stripes to the hood ? Like you I'm a Monte Carlo fan and previous owner. I had a super clean 1 owner '72 and a new '86 SS that I sold in 2001. Both provided perfect service with only standard maintenance and both saw 100k miles.
  11. Mid-Atlantic NNL 05/11/19

    Looked around for you Bill...but didn't see you...thought you might've left. Understand why you best not push it...you did after all make the Big One up in Jersey just a few days earlier !
  12. Thank you Hermann!!! I need to get some pics of the dolly up yet..
  13. Mid-Atlantic NNL 05/11/19

    Sorry I missed it this year again fellas! Looks like it was a good show! Wasn't feeling quite well, so I thought it best I not try to drive down there. Hopefully next year and then there's the Super September Showdown coming up before we know it. I gotta put in for time off for that Sunday night though. No way could I get to the show and them make it back home in time to get enough sleep for work that night.
  14. 1966 Cadillac Series 75 Limousine

    Very realistic looking and a great paint job. Now then, with those left over parts are we going to see a short Caddy ? My be even a Corvette type build ?
  15. Mid-Atlantic NNL 05/11/19

    I heard your name mentioned during the awards...saw you get a trophy...but not sure which model earned the accolades. I think I was suffering from sleep deprivation that day.
  16. I used Testors Flame Red. It’s a gloss paint, but comes out semi-gloss without clear coat. I used a little Testors flat cherry to make the center seam. The red embossing powder is a little lighter than the paint color, but I like the contrast.
  17. What Pleased You Today!

    I found out last night that, in December, I'm gonna be a grandfather. I still don't have my head fully wrapped around it, because I swear my son was just eight a few weeks ago and suddenly he's a 26 year old man. It's a mixture of joy and terror.
  18. '65 Fury. Back on the Bench.

    That's all of the verification I need! Steve
  19. Mid-Atlantic NNL 05/11/19

    Which one won you the Rally Car theme?
  20. Mid-Atlantic NNL 05/11/19

    Thanks JC. The reason I was running late that day was because I was working late every night leading up to the event trying to bring three or four TROG themed builds to completion ...didnt get there...the twin four banger needs wiring . But it was a good building lesson. Maybe I'll finish it for the February IPMS show.
  21. Hasegawa Miura in green

    Very nice shade of green. I like how you have very lightly detailing of the engine and interior.
  22. New Revell Landrover Kit.

    Mike, I'm hoping to build my Land Rover into a "tour vehicle" like I rode in when in Bora Bora several years ago.
  23. Third Celebrity Death this Week

    I don't know if you know this but Grumpy Cat is a dwarf and had what is known in people as dwarfism. That is also the cause of the permanent frown, I'd bet it played a hand in her life span.... I'm a big cat fan so it saddens me she passed so young...
  24. 1976 or 1977 Dale Earnhardt Ford Torino

    Very nice...Back when NASCAR rides looked like real cars and not blobs
  25. Truck and trailer look great, and the start of the dozer looks good, still a lot of work for that one. Hermann.
