Nice work Joe, the colors you have used and the way you have used them is very pleasing and effective. Makes for a very clean, sharp visual. I try to do similar things with my builds, sometimes it works out! I think it's partly an intuitive thing.


I couldn't agree more Gene. I'm a big fan of the monochromatic look on a model. It gives the color a theme and purpose as long as you throw in enuff complimentary / contrasting colors. That's why the block and heads are black, while all else is not. Intuition and color sense are a must or your build is a bust. Thanks for noticing.


As far as progress on the model, um, yeah, that hasn't happened yet. The holidays actually have meaning for me this year and I'm taking full advantage of it. I'm doing the friends and family thing which will keep me off of the desk until next week some time.


I wish everyone the happiest times this holiday season has to offer.


P. S.  After this the Deora Hauler is next. After that, I'm entertaining suggestions for a 1/16 body and decal combo to go with the Hawaiian chassis I finished. Drop all suggestions here along with who carries what for parts and we'll go from there.


P. P. S.  It doesn't have to be a MOPAR (gasp) body. The important part already is.

Chris, my man, Wow! I can see the look on your face. All I have to do is imagine my shock when a set back like that occurs. Especially on parts you spent so much time on. Who knew, right?


Some day you will impart your new found wisdom on a fellow modeler and their gratitude, my friend, will be your reward.

Thank you Stan, I appreciate it.


Sorry for yet another delay, but this time it's good news. My fight with the VA is over and I am a very happy camper. I've spent the whole weekend getting things I've put off for a long time. You can't believe how relieved I am. I'm still busy Monday and Tuesday, but should be back in the saddle very soon.


Thank You All for your patience and for following along.

It's been a busy weekend for me or I would have been one of the first to say, "Schwing Daddy!!! Outa Da' Park Darryl!!!!!"


I save these for special occasions:
