Brad, Thanks for the compliments. The front wheels and tires are from Competition Resins, The rear tires are a soft compound from ArrowHead which I hear is reopening their doors. the rear rims are a combination of the center hubs from the bantam blast kit and the outer rim is from detail master..

Jason, The super stocks are GREAT..

Chris Sobak, Your work is some of the cleanest Ive seen on this site...
Thanks Shane... I appreciate the kind words. You have some very nice builds yourself. I love the "Pure Hell" car, its clean wth the right amount of detail and looks great. Paint is amazing too. I also really like the yellow one right below it as well. I look forward to seeing more of your builds.

Dave Zinn, you know what a fan I am of your "realist" style. I've always contended it was a combination of your control of color and texture in your builds, a subtle approach to what is actually a prodigious technical ability, and something in the way you deal with natural lighting in your photos (can it be the diffuse sunshine of the coastal weather?). Now I have a clue - your photos of geezerman's Chikin' Koop take what was clearly a fine build and just make it sing!
Zane, the Hollish Bros. coupe may be a relatively recent build, but what a classic it has become. However, the examples you posted remind me of the breadth and range of skill you possess. I continue to be inspired by your work. Looking forward to more of the Surfers build...
Jack Logan, your decal work is stunning, especially considerring most of it is off an inkjet. And that drag bike...
Cruz, I generally don't associate your sanitary, super detailed style with drag cars, but boy does it work!
Wayne, you are the king of the kontemporary rear-engine top fueler. I kan't get enough of 'em.
I build Old Skool as much because it suits my still-evolving technique as because this subject matter "speaks to me". So, to all the great practitioners of the "modern style" (Chris Sobak, Romell, Damir, Brett) and all those stunning replica builds (Roger Isenhour, Mitch Reeves), I only hope I can continue to up my game so I can play in your ball park someday...
I'm sure I've left out some other great builders who have posted here, so my apologies for that. This thread has covered so much ground already in just 3 pages. May it continue to rock on!

need to put the spill plates back on
( BM was the 1st one I tried to detail hence the plug wires are a little large)

i wanted to post this build that i have in my collection for everyone to see. i didn't build this one, credit goes to Clay Gratz from Florida for this! very,very cool little altered that Clay built and i'm very lucky to have in my collection now.
I don't ever remember seeing this one done Dave. All your builds are great including this one. The only thing missing is the Chik Fil A sponsorship on the car, LOL!
