  1. You are a pencil amongst a pile of tooth picks my friend. Lol. I would love to see some pics from the show if you have them.
  2. Absolutely stunning Chris. In all honesty, you realize this thing should end up in a museum at some point. I'm still hanging in to see it finished.
  3. Chris. It's been awhile since I checked in and I must say that you have surpassed all levels of detail. It is truly an incredible build and a testament to ones imagination and resolve. I was sad to hear of the setbacks and not hitting the finish deadline but as one posted "A Masterpiece is done when A Masterpiece is done" And this one will in the end will be a legend. Despite your setbacks, count your blessings everyday. A number of years ago my setback began. My hands started to shake, slightly at first but now has progressed to a crippling point. Research lead me to the diagnosis of "Essential Tremors" As time passed, this progressed to the point of not being able to drink a glass of water without spilling most of it down the front of my shirt and typing on a keyboard takes forever due to corrections from fingers hitting the wrong keys. It has definitely changed my world. Modeling has always been a passion for me. Starting when I was 6 years old and I have been building for close to 45 years. My last build was the 68 Vette which I struggled through, only working on not so bad days. Now this passion has been jeopardized. I have tried many medicines to combat this with the last result being, CBD oil, this has shown minimal but noticeable results and only time will tell if I will ever build again. I haven't given up hope as I keep buying eye catching kits here and there with the thought that I will return. My son keeps eyeballing my stash and hoping I will just give up and turn them all over to him but I'm not giving in yet. Thanks for sharing your ideas and creativity with all of us for these year. Keep up the good work and don't give up, I won't. Until then I will build "Vicariously" through watching others like you. God Bless Ya. Steve
  4. Nice use of the "Pandamonium" handle. Lol Another amazing project, loven it so far.
  5. You know it would have been cheaper and less time consuming to just build the real car... Right ? LOL It's really looking good. Something to really be proud of. Question: What is the material you are using for the blanket ? I skimmed through the posts but couldn't see mention of it.
  6. I've got a set of front tires and spoked rims from a Don Garlits dragster or a set from a Chi Town Hustler funny car. in 1/16th scale. how skinny you want to go? PM me if you are interested.
  7. I haven't chimed in for awhile but wanted to applaud. This build is a great inspiration. The ideas you have come up with are amazing. This build is going to end up in a museum some day.. Keep it going.
  8. I ditto the statement "Like a walk down memory lane" This is a truly cool idea. I would love a link as well and Thanks so much..
  9. I think it was the Little Red Wagon as well. What a cool thread though. I can say that I have had the honor of being friends with "Outlaw Ed Jones" who immortalized the Jolly Rancher wheel standing stage coach.
  10. My best ever... I believe it was 1975. Don Garlits front engine dragster. "Wynns Jammer" Wish I could find a photo of the box art. All the body panels were clear. If I remember, the oil pan was clear as well and the crank shaft was a separate piece glued to the bottom of the engine so it was visible. Also that was my first kit that had a real rubber blower belt. I was so careful putting it together that I actually got the crankshaft to turn in the engine. Not that it mattered, later when the blower belt went on because none of the rest of the pulleys turned. But I knew that I made it happen. A purely magical day..
  11. Very Nice. I built a pair of the re-release McLarens a while ago. This kit has lot more detail. Looking forward to more progress photos
  12. Yes, it's Zep brand. got it at home depot and it remove chrome off models and paint with out harming the plastic
  13. So I got thinking a while back on what else the Purple Cleaner would do. Here's what I've put it through. 1. I poured it in a clogged drain.. Awesome results. 2. I used it to clean the Algae out of my backyard pond. Worked better than anything else. 3. Cleaned the rims on my wife's Jeep. This was amazing! Other than an occasional car wash, these rims haven't been cleaned in 7 years. I put the cleaner in a spray bottle and used a common scrub brush then rinsed them off with a hose. Here are some before and after photos. After 7 years of road grime. A small trial use turned out ok. Here's the end result. Not perfect but real close.
  14. Please! could you post some photos of the box content before starting?
  15. Nice build. Just enough custom work to break up the super bird look. That's so true about the length of the car. You pulled it off..
