  2. nissan racer .

    I think this would have been in a silhouette class in the JHTC, or as a repurposed car for time attack. Infact I just googled jgtc r30 and this car showed up in the first image. JGTC stands for Japanese Grand Touring Car
  3. Engine Decision in my Chevette!!!!!

    You really want to make a head turner, do something like a v6 from the Grand National, but twin turbo and supercharged. But that would be a plumbing nightmare. Maybe a Nissan GTR 3.8 twin turbo. You really want to win the odd ball engine award, a 4BT Cummins with a gigantic turbo. I understand completely, working with what's on hand. I don't know what you have on hand.
  4. shortend 55 ford panel

    So much excellent work. I do love me a good custom F100. Craftsman looks very nice. I don't think the mustang front fits the rest of the truck very well, but I can't say you're doing a bad job. Carry on, sir. I'll love to see this finished.
  5. Porsche "Baby" 935 WIP

    This model is so pleasantly surprising in that the box art and the box build is so bad that it doesn't show how great a kit it really is! I thought it was one of these poorly detailed kits with poor fitment and all that, but is actually as good as a Hasegawa, Fujimi or Aoshima, or even better. AMT did this rather frequently, much to their own loss. Some of their kits from the 1990s could compare to the Tamiya and other "high end" Japanese kits of the time.
  6. IMC 48 Ford Coupe - Is it me or the kit?

    I've NEVER had an IMC kit that fit well. I don't know off the top of my head if there is a newer 48 Ford coupe available, but I would certainly look for one. Conversely, IMC kits, with a lot of work, can be built up to some really nice models.
  7. S13 Silvia and Pignose 240SX

    Thank you, sir.
  8. S13 Silvia and Pignose 240SX

    The body went into the purple pond and now with the temporary loss of use of my right arm from shoulder surgery, it's going to be a hot minute before any more progress happens with anything. But there will be a surprise, hopefully before the first weekend of March.
  9. Looking for a very rare monogram model kit

    There's a Moon Eyes dragster in the January issue of Ol' Skool Rodz that has the same Engine setup as that undertaker kit
  10. Cheez Wiz 1955 Chevy update 1/14/18

    I too remember it! I think I may still have the Hot Rod magazines it was in. I remember they had a bottle of cheese wiz with a hose hanging from the hood like an I.V. and the hose just kind of disappeared into the engine somewhere. This is a cool build. I can't wait to see what too with it!
  11. S13 Silvia and Pignose 240SX

    I think it will be for a good reason that I had to strip it. I think I will build a better hood, some aero mirrors, and a better wing. Plus the paint just wasn't very shiny.
  12. S13 Silvia and Pignose 240SX

    Bad news. I tried to fix a spot on the hood so I masked off the rest of the car and fixed the spot and the hood looked perfect! Then this: So to the purple pond it went. The body work held up all except for some very small touch up spots. Devistating crisis averted. New paint job to happen in the near future...with something more durable than acrylic paint.
  13. Chevrolet Van/Medium Duty Chassis Cab

    OMG, you're right. That thing is so ugly I just couldn't see GM letting it get produced. Lol. I really did think it was a Dodge!
  14. Chevrolet Van/Medium Duty Chassis Cab

    This one is a Dodge offering. Definitely wasn't a good looking van, at least not with that nose. *Barf*!
  15. Opel ramp truck

    It's been a while back, but I remember someone, I think it was the late Blaire Pletcher, that built a ramp truck/car hauler using the Opel Blitz as the cab, I think it was a 59 Cadillac for the bed sides and a truck load of talent. I'd sure like to find that build again. It was very inspiring.
