  1. August 2018 (ACME) Club meet

    Being an "Other Scale" builder myself, it's nice to see what other builders do with their Other Scale kits.
  2. Autoquiz 388 - Finshed

    unfortunately, the subject post does NOT include the reminder NOT to give the answer away.
  3. Autoquiz 388 - Finshed

    I worked on one of these once
  4. '70 Mustang Mach 1/ Boss 302 (8/27 Foiling)

    the blue pipe thingy is a tube installed to control where internal engine pressure is vented (in regular passenger cars it is directed back into the air cleaner to be burned by the motor since it usually has fumes and is also an emission control feature). the shinys (breather caps) are vent caps which have screens in them, on most performance engines they are attached to the valve covers where you see the blue pipe connected in this photo. the ignition coil and blue pipe can be made from rod (plastic or metal), sprue or any other material you have on hand, the breather caps can be made or robbed from other kit motors. the ignition coil can be as simple as a short piece of sprue with a hole in one end to insert a coil wire from the distributor cap, paint detail will do the rest.
  5. "The Stig Collection" -Drag-U-La

    love all the SB work you've done on this, great build. My brain kinda got snagged on one thing though... I'm not seeing how the front wheels are connected in the photos so that both wheels turn the same direction at the same time.
  6. AMT Sunbeam Tiger

    nice build up, this is a kit that is on my "way back" burner
  7. thanks for the ideas and inspiration Tim.
  8. looks like something made for a tv show that died before pilot release.
  9. Lindberg 1949 Ford Tudor Coupe. 1/32 scale

    this turned out well, IMHO. I have been putting off building this kit due to the dimensional problems. I wonder if the convertible version of this kit will look as bad as this version. To me, the kit looks like the molds were designed based on the "perspective" artwork on the box.
  10. MPC Mustang II Cobra kits

    I like the MPC version of this better than the AMT version.
  11. '55 Nomad - KingDigit Design Replica

    excellent replica.
  12. Carbs

    the Porsche carbs are the wrong type for two reasons, they are down draft and they are two sets of three rather than the three sets of two that is needed. I know there is a kit that has a cross-flow intake manifold and four side draft webers, I just don't remember the exact kit. You may find what you're looking for at Shapeways...
  13. Engine Ideas

    Actually, the Pontiac 301cuin and 301-turbo "may" be called small block due to reduced deck height of the block.
  14. I like them all, thanks for posting different and coherent build styles.
