 check for roadblocks and shop on e-bay for weapons.

 

 

Is anyone else a little concerned at how casually he said this? :blink:  

 

Seriously though awesome detailing Fred, can't wait to see it with the decals.

 

Awesome progress Andy, I need to make one of those pentagrams too and curse my hot rod to eternal life or something so it doesn't run out of gas. :D

That deadline is getting close!  Unfortunately, there is no way my Ferrari will be done.  Haven't touched it in over a month because of school.

Currently waiting on parts to come from Revell, I'm hoping they get here soon so I can get this to the starting line, if its not here soon then I will go buy another kit so it can make it to the start line.

All the models are looking great. Man, that Duster is going to be tough to beat.

My aspirations died months ago, but maybe I can ride in the back seat of Fred's Land Cruiser.

I wish I had your luck. First coat of paint wrinkled which may keep me from finishing.  :rolleyes:

I hope you guys can get your cars done in time, it'll be a awesome line up.

 

As for me the GTX is a for sure, should have it done by the middle of next week.

 

The Hot Rod is looking grim though.

 

I had to pull the engines off the hot rod to pull the valve covers off and re-spray them, I also forgot to put the starters on. I'm having a few issues with plumbing the radiator for the back engine as well. Also having some problems with the interior, it not making it is slowly becoming reality. But don't completely count it out yet there's still 2 seeks so we'll see.

 

Best of luck everyone!

I've been working on the Datsun for the last couple weeks and I think I'll have it finished in time. Last night I finally got it up on wheels. There are a couple of detail I still need to work out though.

You're more than welcome Erik.  Just make sure your shots are up to date...

Thanks guys but you might not like my Datsun very much when you find out who I'll be driving for, they happen to be the most feared company in Chicago.....

Sixth annual?!?!  Oh man. "I'm out of it for a while and everyone get's delusions of grander," said Han Solo.

 

Well I toed the starting line the first two years.  Was all set to make the first three then dropped out of sight as real life happened.  I can't tell you how happy I am to see this thing is alive and kicking!  And largely unchanged.  

 

nope… no way I'll get a car together by the deadline.  I can only hope there will be a 2014 contest.

 

Thanks for keeping things going.

 

Dave

The final two tone paint job, letting it cure till morning then going to wet sand it to clean it up and then reshoot some color and clear on it.
