  1. Talk to the judges? Don't ever talk to the judges, at least not while they are judging. That's called "politicing" and will get your entry disqualified at the shows I go to. Write out on the entry form or a seperate sheet of paper all the work you've done to the model. Mike
  2. UpScale Models hasTop Studio ones in stock. https://upscalehobbies.com/detail-parts/571-top-studio-120-124-hose-clamps-set.html?search_query=clamp&results=6 BTW, fantastic service from UpScale. Received each of my orders is less than a week. Mike
  3. Haha! Kind of what happened to me. I was resisting the kit until I saw the Volt decals. Now I have one on the way. Mike
  4. If anyone is up for ruining their eyesight, Dorawings makes a 1/144 scale Gee Bee. https://dorawings.com/products/1-144/55-dw14402-geebee-supersporster-r1ampr2.html πŸ™‚ They also make 4 versions in 1/48 scale, including a military one. https://dorawings.com/products/1-48/ These kit should be a leap in quality above the Williams Brothers kits. Mike
  5. Now you just have to decide which side of the purple/blue debate you fall on. πŸ™‚ I contend it was painted purple & green. In some photos it looks blue and it other purple. I saw the short tail version at Watkins Glen back in 1970, and it was definately purple, yet I have found photos on the web where it definately looks blue. Light, film brand/type, and film age can play tricks. The earliest written color reference I have is in Anthony Pritchard's 1972 book "Sports Car Championship" where he states it was "mauve" (pale purple). Mike
  6. Another odd ball I've built - Tucker Torpedo LM-GTP kit-bashed from a Jimmy Flintstone Triclopz, Tamiya Porsche 911 GT1, & a Revell CART Indycar. More pics here.

  9. Beautiful pickup! I've become quite enamored with COE pickups lately, and yours is a great take on the genre.
  10. Thrust DC3 - LSR vehicle made from a DC3 airplane. Another DC3 converted into a mobile home. Steampunk landship made (partially) from a WWI tank.
