    Wait, the kit JUST started shipping and someone got one built already!?!?! Guess that means it really will happen!  Nice work, good to see you went your own direction with it.  Now time to hit the hobby shop for the rest of us.

    Nice work.  I wish I could find a model of my Sienna. Great vehicle!

    Looks nice!  I had to do mine in the orange, but your color choice suites it well also.

    Nice work!  This model makes me ask, when Mopar painted the rockers black, did they mask off the underside so the black didn't get on the bottom?  Anybody know?

    thanks all! 
    Wheels came from AMT 40 Ford Sedan Delivery.

    WOW!  It's been a while since I checked in on this and your work/progress is amazing.  I LOVE that color and the bed just kills it!
    As someone who has judged contests many,many times, something I see that they are going to catch is the mold lines on the sides of the seats. Fixing that would put you from 99% to an ace.

    69 Corvair mildly customized
    I do not get the time to build anymore.  I could spend a lot more time making things perfect, or I could just enjoy it and build something I like.  Even keeping it simple,  I think this Corvair took me over a year.  Enough of that, let me tell you what I did.  The chrome headlights were drilled out and replaced with clear ones.  I smoothed the door handles. I used my favorite trick, railroad fencing screen for the hood vents.  Inside the engine bay I upgraded to 12 volt system, six single barrel carbs, custom built the air filters, spark plug wires, power lines and battery cables. Exhaust manifolds are cut down Viper V-10 units.  Paint is some nail polish, got that so long ago i simply don't remember where.

    I admire your grandson's work!  That will turn out to be an interesting model.  I do question an adult doing that to a $30K 1:1 car in the name of spectator sports.

    Looks interesting.  Shouldn't this be in the truck section though?

    I've got several pics of my California Street Vette, picking one is a challenge!

    Looks really nice, especially the slight weathering. Hope this thread doesn't get banned for the flag on the roof!

    Looks good! Makes me want to finish mine!
  13. carl63_99 added a post in a topic 1:12 Entex Lamborghini Countach completed finally!   

    That looks sweeeeeeet! I built large scale, did that Otaki Countach back in the 80's. They're neat, great to detail, but take up so much room so fast!

    Looking forward to watching this build. I don't have time to work on my models these days, but here's mine in progress. I've got six single-barrel carb setup, redone belt and pulley's and late Camaro rims set up in addition to drilled out headlights and shaved handles. Mild custom.

    Not a great pic, from my cell phone. This Mustang started as just a practice session in using flame templates, but came out so good I had to build the car around it.
