Thank you for the advice on the decals.  I'll try the warm water trick next time!

Fantastic!  The front wheels are amazing, for sure.  I'm wondering how you got the decals to lay down so nice.  They're quite a task.

Post # 33, 2nd paragraph.

Yes, I read it. I hope that some of the examples being shared demonstrate that these types of models can have every bit of passion and craftsmanship that an accurate reproduction of an existing subject has. In fact, I think it takes a lot of creativity to realize something that doesn't exist. After 5 pages of responses, I suspect you're not being swayed, so I'd just say let people enjoy the hobby the way they want, but I think you'll be missing out on some great ideas and techniques.

Wrong! See my answer to Harry in post # 33. I'll finish off this thread later when my guests are gone.

I'm curious why the question was asked at all, then. You can build whatever you want. Why does it matter what other people do? These 'toon and show cars display a lot of imagination, craftsmanship, and passion. I don't think they lessen the hobby in any way, and, in fact, enrich it.
