Hi guys, first I wanna say you boys and girls have some serious talent. I on the other hand, have built two this winter and none before that for about ten years. I'm just now getting the pictures up here. I have the Revell Douce and an 69 Olds AMT here. The douce didn't come out to great and it's getting wheels and tires more traditional to the style of the build and the Hemi HAS TO GO! Haha, the headers are FUBAR and the air cleaners aren't much better. I think I have an old flat head out of the limburg 3 in 1 pickup kit from my younger attempt at the hobby. I have enough parts and glue bombs to keep me restoring for years! By the way I have parts for trade nothing real rare that I know of but alot of cleanable stuff none the less. You can contact me by email if u want to ask about anything, shafferworks@gmail.com the truth is i don't get on here much and I wish I had more time to build. I'm sholders deep in a home makeover. The insulation and window trim from a hundred years ago is letting my heat out around our brand new windows lol. First on the list of eventual builds is the 59 Impala my dad gave me and eventually ended up in the trash, I have some original parts and bought two glue bombs from ebay, thats another post any how. This hurst olds Olds is the only thing I have done that I can be almost proud of. I got the best shine I could from a duplicolor spray can. I did BMF for the first time on this one. I learned how to sand glue off windows and hand rub em' too lol. Ok anyway I'll get to the pictures so u Elders can get to picking them apart.
