Even though its a low-tech build, it's going to get finished! I figure I'll try one more "easy" build before we break out the saws & torches.

Gotta finish it and bring it to NNL East John!   Seriously, we have special gifts that only those who display models will get this year!   :rolleyes:

I appreciate the encouragement, but I'm still getting my feet wet again. I don't think I'm NNL bound with this one but I will finish it. You guys who know me understand what I'm trying to get back into.

This Edsel is a snack.... :grin:

Thanks Mark. I agree, a build is a build. Doesn't matter what you start with, it's what you do with it.

Heck, back in the day I won Best of Show @ the MAMA's NNL with a snap kit.....

Wasn't this one in the "other guys" magazine some years back? If it is, it inspired me to build one very similar, mine is green. I thought the concept was excellent and needed to build one for myself.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Hey John, the whole idea of NNL is that everyone can bring and display their work.  As you know, there's no judging so it's just for fun.   

 

One of the things we realized is that a lot of good builders are coming to the show but not displaying models.  So this year we are starting a neat NNL East imprinted gift that will only be given to those who display!  So display a model and get a neat gift!

I built the Atlantic Roadster when the kit first came out. And yes, it was published heavily in all the mags. One of my most popular builds, and I think it was done in 2 weeks. Go figure!

Thanks for the encouragement on the Edsel. I think I have a neat one lines up next....

I know Tom. If I can get the second one done, I'll bring both. I'm trying to bring something neat and I have just the build..... I think. I have a few weeks, I think I can.
