Just finished up this long term project. It's a '70 Wildcat that I kit bashed with the optional pickup parts from the '70 Bonneville kit. I also made my own custom decals for boat. There are more pics and details on my site. Here's a link. Visit My Website

This is an absolutly jaw-dropping build, man. The Buick is simply outstanding, and when coupled with the speedboat it makes a display that when seen in person must really "knock your socks off"! Great job man. Are you a member of the Y-City Model Car Club?

Those turned out great! Looks like the decals worked on the boat. The rear of the Buick looks great too! Nice color choice. Hope you can make it to a meeting so I can see it in person.

Great write up on your website. I really like the scuba gear & skis in the back.

Mike

This car or truck or what ever it is looks like it rolled out of the GM factory they should have made this, great work.

You do extremely nice work :D
I checked out your website, and I think you should do a post on your scratch-built "KIDZILLA" pedal car.
That is just so cool :D
