    Really like this build!  Your engine work and added details look good.  Sure would like to see a pic or two with the flip-front closed, too!

    I'd hafta agree with Snake; the 3 best years for Impalas, and all of these builds look outstanding, but that '66 stands-out from the rest!  Wow!

    1/24 Mustang headlight lenses wanted.
    Does anyone have the 2 clear headlight lens pieces from any of the following 1/24 Monogram or Revell Ford Mustang kits:
    1/24 1987 Mustang GT Convertible  (Monogram)
    1/24 1989 Mustang GT Convertible  (Monogram)
    1/24 1991 Mustang GT Lowrider Convertible  (Revell)
    1/24 1991 Mustang GT Convertible  (Monogram)
    1/24 1992 Mustang GT Lowrider Convertible  (Revell)
    1/24 1992 Mustang GT Convertible  (Monogram)
    1/24 1993 Mustang SVT hardtop  (Monogram)
    I think I can make these 1/24 lenses work for my project; looking for one set of these from any of the kits listed, (they can be fresh-from-the-tree or from a built-up if in good condition).  I have a fairly-extensive parts box to trade from.  Thanks!

    All I can say is, "Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful and finally, beautiful!

    I'm a Dolphins-fan and a Ford guy and I still like it!  Nice build!
  7. '70 Grande added a post in a topic Chevy and Olds   

    Both of these are very nice builds.  Your paint and detail work is outstanding!  I'm somewhat surprised by the size-relationship of these two builds next to each other; the Chevy seems a bit oversized and "dumpy" next to the Olds.   I'm guessing that is due to the different eras when these two kits were issued as that Chevy kit is about 30 years older than the Olds kit is, I think.

    All beautiful builds!  Speaking of those Turquoise paint colors, can you inform us which paint brands and colors are used on each? I'm especially interested in finding out what that color is on the '55!  thanks!

    Really nice conversion and build!  A great era in Nascar!

    Really nice build!  I had no idea a street-version of these little-monsters ever existed; bet it'd get some attention at the local drive-in!
  11. '70 Grande added a post in a topic Pro Street 49   

    Wow!  I have yet to see a '49 Ford done in Pro-street style, and the results look awesome!  There are so many things that I like about this build!  I had the same '49 Ford kit a short while ago, and couldn't figure out how I wanted to build it, so I traded it off.  I'm regretting that now!  Nice job on this monster!

    If needed, I could write a new post about the time that I was nearly attacked by a 200lb. Illinois Aardvark; man... that was a scary moment!

    Oh yeah, just to add my 2¢ worth, I can't wait for this Cyclone kit to hit the shelves!  The good crew at Moebius certainly knows how to produce excellent subject matter!

    Living in Illinois, I've only had the chance to see one of these once, probably 15 or 20 years ago!  It was much like spotting "Bigfoot", as this Illinois elephant is know for its elusiveness and remote habitat, and I saw one for a few, mere seconds from a distance of 100 yards or so, and then, he was gone!  Without my Pentax in hand, he remains just a visual-memory for me, but, as quoted above, his pile of dung remained, and was unmistakeable!
    Just trying to lightened the mood around here a bit!  LOL
