    Really nice!  There's a lot to like about this build!  What color is that Green paint used on the engine block and suspension pieces?

    A fantastic looking survivor!  There's a lot to like about this Vette build!  i'd like to see more of that tow-car, too, and the trailer as well!  Those both look to be exceptionally-well done, too!  More pics please!

    Rear wheels from AMT '56 Ford Victoria
    I'm looking to trade for the two 1/25 rear, deep-dish steel drag wheels from the AMT '56 Ford Victoria kit.
    I have a fairly-extensive parts box to trade from. Thanks!

    Wow!  This post will be saved as a build "...to inspire exceptional, clean and well-detailed building and the results that can be achieved."  I'll look at this one often to motivate myself to hopefully, one day, be able to build a 1/25 model like this!

    Beautiful build!  I have always loved this kit and the way it builds-up!  You really did an outstanding job building this one pretty-much factory-stock, (like those engine mods, that great looking hood ornament is not quite factory-stock, but sure looks great)!

    I've got one in my parts box; I think its from a 1/25 MPC 1977 Firebird kit.  Its unpainted, Black styrene and made of two separate pieces, the rear-facing scoop upper portion and the lower portion that glues to the top of the air cleaner, (these two pieces are currently cleanly glued together).  PM me if you're interested and I'll send it to you.

    Those are all outstanding looking builds!  I'd sure like to have as productive of a month as you had!  One question on the Stingray; was it difficult to install the luggage rack on the trunklid?  I think that luggage rack is an outstanding detail-piece, but glueing one onto the trucklid straight and in the correctly-center-positioned seems like a difficult and intimidating thing to do in my mind; was it a challenge or pretty easy to install?

    A beautiful build!  All of the details look spot-on!  Nice work!

    Love this build!  Sure would like to see some new kits of this classic race car subject-matter!

    1/24 or 1/25 Weber Carbs- What kit did these come from?
    Can anyone help me identify which 1/24 or 1/25 kit this side-draft Weber carbs chrome piece came in?  It is molded all as one-piece... the first pic below shows the top-side; the second pic shows the underside. Thanks for the help.

    A beautiful, beautiful build!  My best friend's mother drove one of these when I was growing up, but her's was Medium Blue with a Blue interior.  I don't know how many Little League baseball games I went to in the back seat of that Ford, but it was alot.  Your build brought back some good memories for me!  I sure wish this vintage kit could find its way onto the reissue list, but I doubt that will ever happen!
  14. '70 Grande added a post in a topic Roundel/#6 Decal from 1/25 MPC 1960 Corvette kit (or #5's from the Sunbeam Tiger kit)   

    Okay, no response for the #6's; so does anybody have a spare set of the (3) Red #5's found on the recently-reissued AMT Sunbeam Tiger kit?

    Great build; a creative use of parts that come=together very, very well!  Where did you source those wheels from?
