It's really looking good so far. I've always loved that root beer color, and the two-tone is a great idea!

This is an older project, hate the way the finish is around the windows.
Hopefully I can sand it out.

And to think that EYEGORE thought all you did was drink Lion's Kona Blend and lean back on a hammock all day long! Geez, these are some nice models, Big Kahuna. Oh, and thanks for the wonderful Holidays cheers!

Why thank you young man!!!

This will have a lot of Bob Dudek parts on it by the time it's pau.
The hub caps and frenched lights to start.
Motor will probably be topped with his Valve Covers, and exhaust, and possibly the tail lights.
The Bare-Metal Foil I have is getting too old.
The side trim is done in the Super Bright Chrome, which I like the look of.
The windows are regular chrome

Nice, toothy smile. Love it. I ruined one of these last year. I have to re do it. It's a great body and grill.

Well that's cool! Very, very nice paintjob and that grille looks cool too. Perfect wheel and tire choice too, and that ride height is just low enough. Nice to see you building too, Gregg!

Posted ImageHere's one from before, the Revell 1/12 Mustang Shelby, Jim from MicroNitro.net sent his two new Mustang rims, and I can't make a decision on which one I like better.
So, help me out here guys, the front one or the back one?

I was trying to find a post here from before. Someone had posted that there were resin Five-Spoke 1/12 scale rims available from someone, but I can't find the post/thread.
HELP

Gregg,

I prefer the front wheels myself.

As far as the resin 1/12 wheels, I think it is Casey that casts them.
