On my build I simply painted the centers with Tamiya clear blue, rubbed away the emblem and called it a day.

Wheel decals never quite worked well for me.......they always seem too big.

This is coming along reeeeal nice! 👍👍

wonder if it was phoney bidder, & if he'll ever collect the money?


You could always check his feedback later on......it would list the item that was sold for up to 90 days IIRC.


EDIT: BTW, I was watching that auction as well. Interesting that he started the bid at such a high price! Most times potential bidders don't bite when the starting price is so high. He's a regular seller as I watch his auctions as well as Paul Hettick's (Robbbbbb57), so he may now have a following  that will buy whatever he puts up.


That is a lot of coin for a built model............I couldn't part with something I built that turned out so nice, but that's just me. ;)

IIRC, AMC called that paint job a "shadow treatment" which was for 1970 only. I think it looks nicer than the stock stripes, and yours is lookin' good!

Dan, I certainly feel for you over the loss of your dog. :(


This time of the year is kinda tough for me as it was the day after Thanksgiving in 2009 I had to have my KitKat put down. The tough thing was he wasn't quite 10 years old. He suffered from kidney failure and when it got to the point that he stopped eating and started "hiding", I knew it was time to let him go.


Here's a pic of him sitting in one of his favorite chairs in better days..........




Like your dogs, my other cat Captain and KitKat were best buds, They were not from the same litter--------I got KitKat about a month after I got Captain when Captain was maybe only 3 months old. I've had Captain when he was just seven weeks old------he was so tiny when I got him that he fit in the palm of my hand. Now he's nearly 13 years old, and his age is catching up with him. I don't look forward to the time when I'll have go through the same again. :(


Here they both are "cuddling up" on the couch.




I do have yet another cat............a big fat Manx (I originally thought she was a Japanese Bobtail, but she's definitely a Manx), that I showed you in another post. She's five years old now, and Captain has never quited warmed up to her. I got her when she was five months old, and I think the big age difference (seven years) is the reason they've never been close.


People who aren't cat or dog people don't quite understand why some of us get so sentimental over animals. Until they truly become a part of your life for the the better part of  many (sometimes 20) years, you can't get a true sense of how well attached you can become.

Don't know if it has been mentioned yet but you guys should see the Rochester Quadrajet carburetors that Chief Joseph did on a 3d printer! VERY detailed!


?????? :huh:


It's been mentioned (and shown) right above your comment just a trifle.
