    It looks Incredible!  Sorry I couldn't resist.  I does look very nice.
  2. Jim N added a post in a topic I have a problem...   

    I will only if there was something in the original build that I didn't like.  And then only if I am confident I can make the change I want.  I have tried making changes to completed models only to ruin them.

    Very nice!

    As a Chevy fan, I am not crazy about this, but Ford had to do something to address the competitive imbalance they face.  Penske is the only competitive team they have.  Roush has been on life support for several years now.  I really do not see a turn around with the drivers they have and none of the top drivers who have expiring contracts want to go there.  Sometimes it’s cheaper to buy the talent than to try and develop it yourself.

    I use gallon size Zip Lock bags.  No calories.

    I use acrylic paint and dilute with water.  I think it cleans up more easily if I screw up.  With the acrylic paint, you may have to apply the wash twice to get the coverage you want.

    Nicely done!  I built this one several years ago and it remains one of my favorite builds.

    My first car was a 1975 Matador. It was not a very good car, but I kind of miss it.
  9. Jim N added a post in a topic Model kit when flying   

    The kits will be fine. Anything else should go in a checked suit case. I have travelled this way a number of times.

    I store mine in gallon size zip lock bags and put them on a shelf.
  11. Jim N added a post in a topic Favorite #11-style blade   

    I like the number 2. It has a bit more heft.
  12. Jim N added a post in a topic model kit subscriptions   

    I saw the videos on the Senna F1 kit and they send you a parts pack every month through out the subscription. These kits are more of an assembly of pre - finished parts. There do not seem to be many parts that require painting or the application of decals. That being stated, I would be extremely concerned about making a catastrophic mistake and sending $2500.00 down the drain.

    Looks very nice!

    Very well done. You did a great job on the body molding.

    That is really outstanding work! I love the color.
