The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well. k den
anyone in the Jacksonville area know a guy named Dave Shepherd? he's a friend of mine from Indy that moved to FL several years ago. when he was here he had a TON of unbuild models, mostly NASCAR and Indy Cars. haven't talked to him for a while. last I heard he and a friend were working on a 1:1 scale original Ramcharger drag car. a man of many talents.....
very nice....I too prefer the 1/25th JoHans over the Monograms.
actually I have a three JoHan Superbirds. two of them are WIPs and the other was one that I built for the Service Manager I worked with back in the early 80's. he had a 440+6 4sp Hemi Orange 'bird that was pretty wicked. made the model for him but he left the dealership before I got it done. after 30 years, its in rough shape, but hope to restore it someday.
one of the WIPs is a white one that was started to be a model of the Superbird I passed up in 1974. had a chance to buy it but decided as a 19 year old kid, couldn't afford the gas, let alone the insurance. the other WIP is a model of Dan Gurney's #42 Superbird he drove at Riverside.
also a WIP is a green Daytona. one of these days........
I'm currently working on one of Car Kiekhaefer's Chrysler 300C "Road America" cars. the story is that he purchased 4 new 300C's to compete in NASCARs road race at Road America in July of 57. before he got the cars completely modified to 'race trim', the Road America race was cancelled. he put the cars back to street status, with him taking one of them to drive as his personal car and one of his staff taking one of the others. should be an interesting build. I'm getting info from the shop in Kansas that is restoring one of these "Road America" cars, the special order Gray one, for the owner. pretty cool stuff they did to them for racing that will be incorporated into my model.
