I like the design of the green graphix you did. Using pretty much the whole rear 1/4 and bring it forward into the 'spear', looks really good.

this is perfect for me

as you may have noticed, i havent been online in a while because i just havent had time to model
but lately ive been having the bug again and with winter at my door (winter, right, 50 degrees and its the middle of november, im in michigan....maybe there is something to this global warming nonsence)

anywho, here are some of my "under the bench" projects

my dodge 3-3-8
http://www.modelcars...showtopic=46847

as you can read in my last post i had some plans for paint, well i went ahead with them and they looked hideous
so for this project to restart i will need to strip all the paint and start over...which is what has kept me from getting going on this one again



larry/s new outdoors vehicle
http://www.modelcars...showtopic=38980http://www.modelcars...showtopic=38980

no real reason why this one stalled, nothing im waiting on and i should be able to buckle down and finish her up



some sort of rod
http://www.modelcars...showtopic=40797

not sure why this one stalled, just not my cup of tea but i would like to see it come to fruition




75 dodge dart
http://www.modelcars...showtopic=38061

this one was going well untill i decided to order some resin parts for it and it sat for a while awaiting those parts
of course, by the time the parts got here i had lost interest in the build...shouldnt take much to finish this one



and finally, my hotwheels GTX
http://www.modelcars...showtopic=45030

not sure why this one stalled, i guess i just run out of modeling time
also shouldnt take much to finish this puppy up




so, there you have it, a short and very inconclusive list of my stalled projects, i am now taking votes on what you guys want to see finished

Okay, so I was having fun getting this one moved along now that it is back on the bench...building is done, just the remaining decal work to do and it's done!
Used a Drew H Pit Pass article from Oct 93...Thanks, Drew!
Kit is the Monogram Morgan Shephard #21 Citgo T-Bird-Aftermarket decals were actually cut, peel and stick vinyl that I bought in 1993.

Got a little more work done,

the Model T is almost done, got the headlights mounted, and the fire plate on the grill. I made a little tire bracket for the side mounted spare. Still need to make up some license plates and arrange the supplies in the back.

I also got the 59 El Camino repainted (3rd times a charm :huh: ) and foiled

No plan, missed it. I did the foil on this and the Hudson back to back must have been getting foil madness. :P
