  2. Big Three engines by FTB

    Not yet..... I'll head that way soon 😏👍🏼
  3. '66 Shelby GT350H rescue

    Thanks! Sounds like some really neat projects!
  4. 1985 Olds Surpreme Brougham

    Nice build! I haven't started but I'm going to build a similar mode,. My first car was also an ,84 brougham, with a navy interior and vinyl top, but mine was painted an off-white/cream. Hiwd yiu tackle the vinyl top? It looks great.
  5. Terrible Box Art

    Here's one for the ages.....
  6. 1985 Olds Surpreme Brougham

    Other than the Regal G.N. / GN-X and , to a lesser-degree , the Monte Carlo SS , the A/G-Specials weren't marketed as performance cars . Yes , the H/O Cutlass was performance-oriented , but... Roger Smith did enough damage to G.M. --- a total unenthusiastic individual .
  7. #2, 1962 Ford Thunderbird

    OK, this is my second time at "Flocking". Don't think it looks too bad. The big spot the drivers side will be covered by the driver's seat. I'll get better. Heard that "embossing powder" works better. Opinions?
  8. '70 Plymouth Superbird

    Wasn't it originally TB3 Corporate Blue ( "999" on the fender tag ) , but was named 'Petty Blue' for the 1970-1971 B-bodies ( then renamed Basin Street Blue [Plymouth] and Super Blue [ Dodge ] for the 1972 model year ? ) The "T" in "TB3" = 1962 model year release . I've heard some conjecture that Petty Blue was actually a different shade of blue vs. Corporate Blue .
  9. Looking for a few sets of the thin stripe whitewall tires found in the Moebius '65 Satellite kit. Not interested in the Moebius Comet tires...the whitewall is wider and kinda goofy looking. Have parts to trade or can do PP too.
  10. '70 Plymouth Superbird

    Looks great! "Super" job! Everybody loves Superbirds, even us Ford peeps
  11. Volvo 850 Estate Wagon.

    Beautiful paint!,I built the same kit a few years ago and I enjoyed it so much I bought another kit.
  12. 1966 AMC Marlin (Jo Han)

    X2. I wish I had one.
  13. 74 Buick Electra coupe

    WOW! I do love Buicks! That is very nice too. I would really rather have a Buick!

And if you ask me if it's slow I won't lie I can shut down any Honda With the uh, wink of my eye! Schlock Rod! Schlock Rod!
  15. What went wrong???

    Which brake fluid did you use? Dot 4 Brake fluid has always worked for me (dot 3 is the most commonly used stuff for paint stripping so should work too). It even removes 2k clear after a little scrubbing.
  16. Lola T-70 Mk III

    Thanks Mike! I am designing several parts for this in SolidWorks. I have a printer that I'm working with for the 3D parts and he's in the 40 micron range right now. I'm planning to replace the engine with a more accurate SB Chevy. When I mounted the front roll bar to the cowl/windshield frame I paid attention to get a good fit for the windshield. But now the hood/fenders/nose doesn't fit very well to it. Not a surprise and an easy tradeoff. But it also turns out the dark blue plastic the body is molded in is really brittle. A goal from the start was to not have the body panels under tension when assembled, but now it is very important due to how many cracks and parts have broken under just modest stress. Brass reinforcements have been added along the way including the pins and machined tubes for mounting points at the cowl. To cut down on the load/stress I had to add mounting points to the front of the tub and hood too.

    Can you post some pics of yours Tony ?

  19. Revell 2019

    I thought the bodysides looked better than the latest '70 kit (not so slabsided) and the roofline looks better than the '95 issue (not a chopped top).
  20. '71 Mercury Comet F/C

    Another cool build! I have a few of the Comet Pro Stock kits including a Fast Eddie. Always loved these kits!
  21. What went wrong???

    Thanks guys. This is a 70s AMT interior bucket that was sprayed blue with TS-something. Alcohol, Super Clean, brake fluid, oven cleaner hasn't budged it. Just want to change the color. It's so lightly engraved that I don't want to put more paint over it if I can get what's there off.
  22. Revell 2019

    It's based on the new tool '70 Barracuda/ Sox & Martin kit. I got one last Friday (6-14-19). The Hemi valve covers and dual carbs are left in the AAR kit from the earlier releases but the 4 tires are still all of equal size (unlike the real car's staggered sizes). Maybe the AMT parts pack tires will work (?).
  23. Revell 2019

    Near as I can tell, it seems to be based off the latest '70 kit.
  24. Beach Boys Song. Shut Down Dodge Dart

    Kinda like Springsteen's "' '69 Chevy with a 396, fuelie heads and a Hurst on the floor." Or how about this from Warren Zevon's "Roll with the Punches": "Johnny had a '57 Chevy, four on the floor and a 429." A 429? Why? Because it had to rhyme in the next lyric: "We used to take it out on Wild Horse Pike, run it out to the end of the line." As you said, it's all good.
  25. "The Moose" 38 Chevy Gasser

    Looks good!
  26. Flamed 57 Chevy Gasser

    Cool or should I say hot with those flames.
  27. 64 Impala Awb

    I remember reading article from an old Hot Rod magazine, where it think the fellow was from the east and drove his car out to the west coast with some friends to have it altered. and then drove it back. They had to dump their suitcases because there was too much weight in the trunk and it kept lifting the front end up. Look forward to seeing more progress shots.
