  1. Corvette C7R (Daytona winner)

    Really cool, can't wait to see it completed. I like those Vettes!
  2. Powerslide decals

    Powerslide decals are very good quality product, it lend on really nice and i work them with micro set and micro sol setting solutions to conform tricky places. Micro set on the body Under the decal and micro sol after the decal is applied as a solvent, but once applied you must not touch the decal before it dries completely!
  3. Thank You Brian!
  4. Joker goon car into Detroit PD Fury

    Your replica is stunning i like police cars, these old Dodges and Plymouths were very popular back in the days!! These details are just looking perfect. Nice work!

  8. Thank's everybody! I like weathering, i find it more realist of the real trucks!!
  9. Thank's for the kind comments!
  10. Hi folks! Here it is completed, not a perfect kit, it gave a bit of struggle, but here it is. I used the kit's decals to replicate a well worrn but solid Feathers edition Blazer. The wheels and tires have been replaced by the excellent Fireball Modelworks 4X4 item. Also i added a police style front push bumper i had scratchbuilt myself, with KC Lights also from Fireball Modelworks. In all with the weathering, i'm satisfied with the result!
  11. Positives to come from the Revell Deal?

    I'm sorry for the Revell employess who lost their jobs with the deal, best wishes to all of them! For us modelers, i think it will help developing new products, because Hobbico's Financial situation refraint Revell to get budget for developpement, i'm pretty sure of that! I don't think the new owner spent over 3 millions $$$ to acquire the company, only to close it like this! And i think Revell doesn't tool enough of what we can affordly drive today, you want to hook yougnsters, bring them a model of the car they own. or at least can afford!! And not only Honda Civics, there's a lot of domestic cars that have never been tooled, not to forget all the more recent pickups that are so popular! I remember all of the annuals in the past, Amc Pacers, Plymouth Dusters, Pontiac Grand Prix, Chevrolet Chevette and so on... I never understood why Revell didn't brougt us the Hellcat Challenger, or the Z-28 Camaro, they already have the tooling base for these and they are really popular! I live in Quebec, Canada and i can tell you that the model car hobby here is better now than it was even 25 years ago!!! lots of younger modelers 20-30 years old, boys and girls, have joined the family, thank's to Facebook!! And it's still growing!! I don't think this hobby is dying, it only need a bit of refresh! Of course, bring us accurate models of the cars we want, never repeat the 1990 Mustang mistake for example, tool them right before releasing! I have a stash of over 700 unbuilt kits, but being excited about new releases to come, is part of the motivation to build for me, keep them coming, i'm gonna keep buying them!! Let's see what will happen next!
  12. 64 dodge 330 super stock

    Your Dodge look really cool! Don't mind the panel lines, it doesn't alter the look of your model to me!
  13. Let's see some police cars

    Here's a few of mine! A Texas DPS Charger from Lindberg (glue kit), a N.J. State police Charger from Testors (repainted black and white die-cast) and an Impala (L.V. P.D) from CSI T.V.series. I also have my own country in Qu├ębec, Chevy Caprice 1995 Under construction...since a while, i did all the modifications from the Impala SS myself (Wheels, interior police seats and floorpan to remove the center console) and the decals are from BillBozo..
