    Jo-Han 1931 Mercedes
    Hey guys!
         Got another question about a vintage kit. I just purchased a sealed jo-Han 1931 Cadillac off the eBay. While doing some research I found that these really old kits that haven't been opened can have a problem called "tire burn". This is where the compound of the tires somehow melts the softer plastic of the kit. My question is should I go ahead and open her up to see if there is any damage or let it be and hope for the best if I ever decide to build it. Below is a picture of the kit in question. BTW think I stole it for 10 bucks plus 10 more for shipping. What do y'all think?

    Yea your right. I have done that and saved many of those images. Was just looking for a shortcut I guess. Lots of little decals on this sheet and since they came from an actual kit hoping someone might have an extra manual. Thanks

    Richard Petty 200th win car
    Hey!  I'm looking for an instruction sheet for the Richard Petty 200th win pontiac.  I have looked on revells website to no avail.  I purchased the racing petty combo kit and the decals separately.  Any information on decal placement would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks

    Revell 1966 Pontiac GTO
    Got another simple build for you.  I bought this kit at my first model car show about a year ago here in Birmingham.  Its the Revell 1966 GTO.  Kit was in pretty good shape but the decals where trashed.  Built straight out of the box with the exception of the wheels, which are from the 1962 impala California wheels kit, and added detail under the hood.  Tried my hand at creating the fuel lines to the carburetors and that is what I came up with.  I know its not correct for the real car but that tri-power setup is a beast!   Paint is that testors green metallic. I try to have a theme for most of my builds and this one was for my mom.  The color is close to here birthstone color, and the purple engine is for my grandmother which was her favorite color.  Thanks for looking and comments, questions, and concerns are always welcome.
    Keep on Modeling!!!!

    Wish i had a better camera or maybe my lighting is off but the colors are not represented well.  The car is actually more of a greenish blue and the top is maroon.  The interior pick is closer to the actual color.  Thanks for the input!

    That's awesome. Didn't know there where so many of them! The two piece tires definitely threw me off too. But surprised it has stayed all together after 40 years. Thanks again guys for the great information!

    Thanks! This was the first time adding so much detail for the firewall. The paint isn't my best but don't think it's chipped. Don't remembers if the antique plate came with this kit or not just liked the purple on white. Glad you pointed that out cause I just realized there is no plate on the front lol.

    Man that crazy.  You are the third person to say that and those are only replies I have got so far.  I thought it was a cool kit cause it is a hot rod with a corvair engine!!

    1969 Dodge Charger
    What's up guys and girls?  I have another Charger for you!  This is the yellow labeled pro modeler 1969 Dodge Charger. Did not do any body modifications other than cutting the motor mounts to make the massive Hemi sit right in the bay.  The wheels may not be the right year for the car but it is what i had on hand and they where free!  They came from the 1968 Charger kit.  Details include wired spark plugs, battery, firewall, and brake booster.  I added real rubber hoses for the heater and radiator.  Interior came out to be my best yet! Made seat belts using craft ribbon and BMF.  The floor board was flocked using nail flocking (really cheap on eBay, $10 for an assortment of 10 colors). Center console also has a little BMF added.  The chassis is pretty simple, just some painted on details.  First time trying the over spray look, probably went a little over board.  Pint is all rustoleum rattle can with the vinyl top being one of their satin finishes.  Can not remember the exact colors but can find out if needed. Don't be scared to point any flaws, only makes me better.  Hope ya'll like it!  Thanks!
