  1. How Old Are You

    Turned 70 in December, started modeling when I was about 10 I think. Lots of glue bombs. Stopped at 19 when I went to Vietnam. Started again in 2007. Love the hobby but the expense is crazy for a person on a fixed income, since I have to balance the cost against my other hobbies.
  2. Not to hijack ismaelg;s thread, What's YOUR 1;1 Dream car ?

    1. would have to be a 1969 BOSS 429 Grabber blue 2. 2018 Mustang GT 350 R, Ruby RED with white strips 3. 1970 complete rebuild to factory specs from the ground up Datsun 240Z 4. 2003/4 Mustang Cobra w/mystic chrome paint 5. 2018 Jaguar f type 5.0 litre supercharged in RED These are interchangeable!

  5. What did you see on the road today?

    Same thing happened with me last Friday, guy was in a Nash Metro, yellow and white in great condition, I asked at a light if he would be ok with me taking a pic and he said he would rather I wouldn't. Too bad, nice car!

    Thanks for the tip, the mirrors...spaced out doing that, again...as you can see by the pics of this one I left the mirrors off. Not what I wanted to do but the kit I bought had been opened and some parts were missing including the mirrors. Yours is nice looking, good job on it.

    Your right, the 70's had the black scoops. I had it attached prior to shooting the color and forgot to mask it so I just left it the way it was. The tail lights...were a total pai. There was no bezels, lenses, no backing etc with the kit, got a bezel/bumper from online request then I filled the bezels in with some Bob Smith glue didn't realize till after the glue had set up that the lenses are inset, not flush. The spoiler is a weird one, it looks like it was made for a Trans Am or Datsun, the fin is not right on the edges. Notice hot the back of the fin is angled similar to the front leading edge in your 1:1 pic, were the kit's is straight. I probably should have cut the angle but...well there is always next time.
