OK, first of all,  I bought myself a Christmas present of a 1958 Ford Convertible  resin kit from The Modelhaus.  I love all the '58 cars.  Some people consider the '58 Ford to be an ugly car, but, I happen to like it.  This is a really great casting with next to no cleanup needed at all.  My plan for this, which is on my workbench now, is to make this a "bolt-on" Custom......  as if someone threw a J.C. Whitney catalog at it in 1959 to see what would stick...!!!  I got the curbside  kit with skirts, an uptop and convertible boot, and a full continental kit with an extended rear bumper.  I sanded off all name badging and will be adding twin dummy spots, mirrors, front spinner hubcaps, lake pipes and a swept back antenna on the trunk lid.

The color will be Tamiya Coral Blue.

One of the things that I really love about this kit is that the interior is NOT a bucket......  It is a platform style interior with the front seat, side panels, dashboard and steering wheel all being separate pieces.  This is going to be GREAT to detail the heck out of.  The colors will be Tamiya Coral Blue and white.

In addition to this kit, today my wife treated me to a trip to my LHS for a belated shopping spree Christmas Present.  Here's what I picked up

 

TODAYSNEWSTUFF1024x746_zpsd4db23c0.jpg

 

 

I finally got the '50 Olds and the '57 Ford kits and a bunch of flat paints for interior detailing along with some epoxy, non-fogging CA glue, and XActo blades.  While wandering through the very well stocked store I came across the 1/48 scale 1942 Ford Army Staff Car.  Now 1/48 scale is pretty darn small, but since it was such an odd find I thought that at some point I'll try to make it into a Street Rod.  Should be a good challenge if I don't go blind trying to work on it... LOL.

Not today actually but last Friday I picked these two up at Performance Hobbies in Webster, NY. The Ferrari has an excellent set of treaded rain tires.

Thursdsay I got my (complete) ford motorsport 82 imsa racer and the 3 engines with stands (chevrolet I presume them to be) friday I got my "miller" 82 imsa racer (zakspeed powered like the. Forementioned) no decals :( (debating on whether to paint it black and buy capri zakspeed decals or buy the miLler?)
Also with the jot the jps imsa racer. 91' circa (jason player special) whatever that it black and gold (no box or decals). But that's why you get em cheap on the flea bay! Hope my kens fuzzy fur comes today (saturday). Really pumped about this small 1.7 litre ford zaakspeed s cylander pushing well over 500 hp and capable of 9,000 rpm who woulda thought out of that tiny motor??!!

Got a visit from the great Jimmy Flintstone last night. He dropped off a bunch of HHR bodies in panel and window versions. This is a slammer body as the glass areas are solid resin. He's got them if you want them. I got several ideas for these. They will accept a shortened by 1/8 to 3/16th inch PT Cruiser chassis. As it's meant as a slammer, there is no glass or interior.

Some good news (finally), One of the patches I cut out was for no reason, there's metal there, had this good news only to have the bottom picture happen and end my work for the day.

and yes there's still quite a few other things left to do in that area, need to fix my grinder first, then I'll clena up my spot welds, and do the next section. I still have quite a few small holes to take care of.

Got the cam and crank out of my 350. Frost plugs too. Next step is hot tank and magna flux. If no cracks then I'll bore it and start saving for a set of pistons. Attached File  IMG_20130105_132436.jpg   135.38KB   9 downloads

Walked into the model aisle at HL and they were just putting a 57 Ford on the shelve. I grabbed it before she could set it down.

They only got ONE!!! She said that is how they are doing a lot of the new kits.

I don't get it???? :blink:

But who cares with the 40% off coupon. then picked up a 55 Nomad to have a good body for a full kit that had the body chopped up for the truck.

I'll use that body with the half kit and make the truck too! B)

My Hobby Lobby wont let me get away with more than 1 coupon a day, i mean that is what it states on it. What i do is take my 16 month old with me and tell them hes buying it. I get some funny looks but they cant stop me from doing it.
