  1. Tamiya Mercedes Gullwing

    Stunning build! I'd be very, very pleased with the paint finish on the kit's body. The detail work on this build is spectacular!
  2. 70 ford maverick

    Very nice! Unusual subject matter almost always catches my attention, and this build of yours sure did! The wheel and tire swap are a natural for this Mav; and your paint-color choice is excellent as well. What color is that, anyway?
  3. I have a project in-mind, but need some parts to get that project off the launch-pad. Problem is, I don't want to make a big investment in this project as I'm undecided as to what direction the project might finally go in. What I'm looking for are the body, interior, glass and chassis pieces from the 1/25 AMT/Round-2 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona kit. Now I know this kit doesn't build-up into the best representation of the 1:1, and I know the Revell/Pro-Modeler kit issued way back in 2004 is of a much higher-quality, but I also suspect there maybe many of these AMT/Round-2 '69 Daytona kits lying around in an unfinished state, and maybe looking for a new home. Anybody have some parts from this kit that they're willing to "part-out"? I don't want or need any engine pieces, or any wheel and tires either. Just looking for the body, interior, glass and chassis pieces in either fresh-from-the-tree or good and restoreable condition. I have a fairly-extensive parts box to trade from. Any "dead" '69 Daytona projects out there looking for a new home? Thanks!
  4. Show your Revell '68 Chevelle"s

    Anyone else finished a new '68 Chevelle recently; sure would like to see some pics of it!
  5. 69 Yenko Nova

    Everything about this build is outstanding! Paint work, color choices, vinyl top texture/finish, detail painting, decal application... I could go on-and-on! I really like the Torque Thrust wheels on this build; especially the detailing-painting on their lugnuts and center-hubs. Boy, wouldn't this be one that nearly anyone would love to have as a 1:1 sitting in their garage! Nice work, Tyrone!
  6. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    What a minute; how 'bout that quaint little Alfa Sprint GTA...?
  7. 69 Camaro SS Daytona Yellow

    Stunning! One of the very best, (if not THE very best), builds of this kit that I've seen! I like the Yellow overspray on the chassis; it looks "just right" to my eye! All of the detail's paintwork looks outstanding as well... nice job!
  8. Peking to Paris Firebird

    Great project; looking forward to seeing it cross the finish-line. Will the final have numeral and other decals applied?
  9. small tire LX mustang

    Wow! This looks like an ambitious project; and you're off to a great start! I saw the first group of pics and had no idea you cut-open the doors on this project, (that alone is a testament to the quality of the workmanship when you can't even tell the doors have been cut-out)! I'll be watching this one as it progresses!
  10. I am looking to trade for the following 1/25 AMT 1971 Plymouth Duster 340 engine parts: 340 Engine-block (2) pieces, (Parts # 1 and #2). Transmission/Bell Housing-bottom Pan (Part #3) Oil Filter (Part #10) Coil (Part #18) Starter (Part #23) Would prefer these parts be fresh-from-the-tree, or from a built-up if in good, restoreable condition. I have a fairly-extensive parts box to trade from. Thanks!
  11. Model King '59 Imperial.

    Anyone have a good idea about a good choice of donor chassis to go underneath this Imperial to get a more detailed chassis with separate suspension pieces? I was wondering about the '59 Plymouth, (Christine), kit, but I'm almost certain the wheelbase would be too short. Any thoughts out there would be appreciated.
  12. Mpc 69 Coronet parts wanted

    Brandon, Hood is on its way. USPS tracking # has been PMd to you.
  13. '65 Chevelles: AMT vs Revell

    I love the 1:1, but could never get past that poorly-done Revell roofline either; hence, I've never bought the kit.
  14. Monogram IMSA Zakspeed Roush Mustang

    Really, really like this build! Everything looks so "right" on it. Great paint and decal work and your engine compartment is outstanding!
  15. Mpc 69 Coronet parts wanted

    Kevin, Thanks for the info; mine also has Carol's handwriting on it... kinda makes me a little sad to look at it in that way. I think I got it from them in the early/mid-2000's
