Benjamin, I've got both the Dodge Lil Red Truck and Caddy Lowrider kits here, which one would you take for the Shelby ragtop?

In Topic: Curious; why are there so few tuner classes at a lot of model shows/contests?

19 October 2014 - 05:03 AM

I'm 50, and grew up with Muscle Cars, and have owned a few, I absolutely love 'em and build 'em all the time! But, building an occasional Tuner gives me the chance to really stretch my skills out in a different direction. There's not a whole lot you can't do with a Tuner that someone hasn't done in 1;1, so there's no worries about it looking goofy, anything with a wing that big is gonna look goofy. I take it as a challenge to make the goofy wing look like it belongs there. That, and dropping a Pro-Street Eclipse with a 426 HEMI on the contest table makes everyone look at you like you've lost your mind,,,,

In Topic: The absolute worst kit ever!

Any of the MPC flip nose kits, especially the '57 Corvette (the weird, wide rear tires made it even worse) ...


I've gotta agree, the MPC Flip-Nose kits were horrible, but those great big slicks were my favorite part, they looked great on many other models!


Although I do need to find another one of the Spirit Of '57 kits, just to see if I can finally build it and get a decent result!

In Topic: Elenore II I got a crazy idea

Stretching out the grille and headlights is a great idea, it'll change the look and hopefully make the bumper less pronounced! The side scoops are gonna look a whole lot more aggressive like that, i like the idea!

Then I'll just sit here with my mouth shut and watch! Bring on the "special" mill!
