    Sweet builds John. The Tide Monte Carlo has always been my favorite ride of his.

    Beautiful build, Tommy.  This has to be the best work I've ever seen done to this kit, congrats!

    Killer weathering, Chuck.  That motor really looks spot-on.  Very cool build.

    Thanks guys.  Black is my favorite color on these trucks, I built it to sorta resemble what I'd want mine to look like if I had the money for a real one.

    Ford F150 Raptor
    My 5th completed build of the year.  I was looking for something quick and easy to build for a change of pace and this kit fit the bill perfectly.  I didn't have any issues whatsoever and it looks really good with a little detailing.  The BFG Krawlers are from Fireball Modelworks, as are the wheelbacks.  I had to sleeve the ends of the metal axles with short pieces of aluminum tubing to get the wheelbacks to fit better on them (still used some superglue as it still wasn't a tight fit). The wheels are from the Lindberg 97 F150 flareside "offroad" kit, they are only 5 lug but I can deal with that little discrepancy.  I also completely removed the large tab and mounting pins for the exhaust tips for a cleaner look. OOB the tips also stuck out too far in my opinion, so I also shortened them up a little, as well as drilling out the tip ends.  Paint is Duplicolor Universal Black, polished out with no clearcoat.  The only stickers I used were for the instrument panel and the 6.2L emblems on the doors. For the door emblems, I carefully trimmed the clear carrier off, and once I had them on the truck, brushed on a light coat of semi-gloss clear to knock down the high-gloss shine on them a bit.  Sorry about some dust and pollen in some of the pics, it's been breezy today and that stuff is blowing all over, it was hard to keep the truck clean.

    Very nice work Tomo, I've always been a fan of those Skyline GT-R's.
  11. bogger44 added a post in a topic How many kits do you have in your stash?   

    In the ballpark of 260 automotive and about 35 aircraft. I've been trying to build more than I buy the last couple of years, and have barely succeeded at it.....it's not easy lol!

    Excellent looking project, Jason.

    Beautifully done Randy, just as you always do. Acapulco Blue has always been one of my favorite Ford colors, and it suits the Shelby very well. The white interior really sets it off.

    Great work Jesse. Nice job on those gauges. I wouldn't mind snagging this kit someday.
