Thanks for the very nice welcome Folks.

I have recently reduced my kits, and the decals assigned to those kits, from 53 kits and 55 decal sheets. I'm down to 22 kits and a decal sheet assigned to each one. The only Kevin Harvick scheme I plan on building at this time, but that could change.....it always does huh, is the 2003 #29 Monte Carlo Snap-On "Winston" scheme.

The #59 STP Ambrose build was a most enjoyable build. My first attempt at making a Fusion from a 05 Taurus. Had to fill the fuel filler on the LH side and move it to the RH side. Sanded the nose of the taurus, sanded and filled the grill, raised the bottom horizontal part of the rear quarter windows and reshaped them. A little bit of modifying but thats what make it fun. If it was easy all the time it would quickly become boring.

very nice! any pics of the engine bays and chassis on these you could share?

Dave

Ah Ha Dave, you've discovered my secret. I build shelfers and tie them down to single display cases with wire ties. I enjoy detailing the body exterior, wheels and tires and the interior. I glue the hood down and there's no engine in there. I also do not detail the chassis. This allows a quick build and time to devote to the detail areas I like to do.

No, I build curbsides, though of a somewhat earlier vintage. But to call those beautiful models you posted "curbside" is like refering to Bill Gates as a somewhat successful businessman.

Thanks everyone, your comments are most gracious. I build as a hobby, for relaxation, and I love to do the small details. Like everything else, it's the little things that make the whole and I love detailing.
