    Thank you for the AB info. Glad to see you back on this. I look forward to your progress.
  2. 2019 CBR - the Vannonball Run!

    It's not that it matters if people care, it's more that I was embarrassed to own the first one . I'm going to give it my best shot. I will be modifying my original idea. Thank you for the nudge forward Jacob.
  3. Real or photoshop?

    Illustration I'm not a real big fan of Rat Rods but this I like.
  4. 2019 CBR - the Vannonball Run!

    This was on my porch yesterday. I coulda put it in "What did you get today?" but I'd prefer most people don't know. I doubt that very many forum members have one, or have even heard of this kit. It is a good one to avoid if at all possible. Now I pretty much have two.
  5. I was reminiscing about some of the vehicles I've owned over the years. I got to thinking which year would be my favorite if I could only pick cars from one certain year. My vote would be 1967. Some Highlights: Corvette coupe or convertible (I had a coupe) Mercury Cougar (my first car) Dodge Charger (had one of these too) Cadillac Eldorado (an Aunt had one, white w/black interior and black vinyl top. Beautiful car IMO) Chevy Camaro Pontiac Firebird (my brother had a '68) Plymouth Barracuda Olds 4-4-2 Pontiac G.T.O. Ford Mustang (coupe, hardtop and convertible) Yes, there are more, like the AMC Merlin, Olds Toronado, Ford Galaxie, et al. I could go on and on. Link to some '67 models. Seems the Ford's were left out except for the Shelby. Check the last pic of the Pontiac Thunderbird! Awesome. https://www.uniquecarsandparts.com.au/car_spotters_guide_usa_1967 I'd like to keep this to American cars. My Import car year would be different. What is your favorite year?
  6. This is what stupid looks like

    I question the footwear used. Both the "mechanic" and his helper have the same type. At about the 24 second mark the mechanics foot seems to be underneath the jack handle.

    I found one for a decent price on feeBay. Hope to have it by the end of the week. I will be redesigning from my original idea.
  8. 2019 CBR - the Vannonball Run!

    I've hit a bit of a snag on the AMTronic model I have been working on. I joined this CBP way back at the beginning. I've worked on it off and on. It has frustrated me. I had cut a good portion of the back half out to shorten it. Since then I've found that I really need to glue the pieces together so I can work on it but I can't as then I will not be able to do anything on the interior, like spray paint it or add any details, which I had planned to do. Here's my dilemma, I got the box out to work on it today, I like abuse I guess. Come to find out I have misplaced the bottom section of the rear. I have searched for it, and so far, I can not find it. I've searched in it's boxes, the boxes of other models I have started and around various areas of the house. I keep a waste basket beside my build desk, it may have fallen in there without me knowing. That was about three empty's ago. I think I have til the end of the year to finish this, correct? I'm gonna look for another kit at a reasonable price and I do plan to get it done. I will not be shortening it this time though, it may go a little easier.
  9. Larger vintage model car to customize (I hope)

    Welcome to the forum Paul. You have an interesting looking project there. Sorry, I have no knowledge of the Molotow pens or paint. I have a Molotow 1mm pen, it's still in the blister pack. Their paint may depend on the fluid needle/nozzle of the airbrush. I do not know what it's viscosity is. You may want to consider painting at least some of the chrome body base color. That would solve part of your issue. Being the model is so large you could do a considerable amount of paint work on it. Here's a link to a post on the forum that I love, as you can tell if you click on it. Might give you a few ideas. http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/142046-70s-paint-jobs/

    Thank you for the info. As Christopher said, excellent detail in that scale. Once this one is done it may be time to take the Lancaster out of it's "hanger" and finish it.

    The video is interesting. It's looks like the '58 Impala is etched, then painted with "metal paint"??? This car is stunning! https://journal.classiccars.com/2018/10/30/sema-seen-kuhl-racingrohan-1958-chevrolet-impala/

    Did someone say Lowrider? You should at least give it a try Ricky. It may turn out better than you anticipate. Would be good practice to "see it in the negative". And there is always Super Clean, Purple Power, Easy-Off etc, etc.

    Sorry to those that may not like this style. I'm not ready to let this thread die. If anyone would care to add to it I'll be looking. Custom or low-rider. As an aside, the last pic, to me, is mind boggling. It's amazing how nice of an effect a black and white paint job can have. It could be somewhat hypnotic.
  14. Revell Boeing B17G Flying Fortress

    I think you are doing an excellent job on this considering the cut-away aspect of it and the foil. It's a pretty tall order that looks very nice to me. Unless I missed it, what scale is this kit? I saw one in 1/48 at Hobby Lobby that piqued my interest next time I have some extra spendable cash for a kit that I wouldn't know what to do with once I built it. The one in 1/48 has a wingspan of over 2 feet. Not sure where I'd display it. Then again, I have been keeping an eye out for a 1/24 Stuka at a reasonable price. The B-17 is my favorite American airplane.
