  4. Looking forward to it, always a great time!
  5. That is a stunningly amazing build! You have some fantastic machining skills.
  6. Very nice looking models, nice clean builds!
  7. Amazing work as always Mark, your level of detail and the effort put into each part is outstanding.
  8. Here's my rendition of the Revell Tom McEwen '57 Chevy funny car. The body was painted with TruColor Spectrum Blue Pearl paint, chassis with Tamiya semi gloss black that was clear coated. Decals were a combination of kit supplied decals and Slixx gasser sheet for the Spirit of 57 decal. Braided lines are from ProTech and fittings are from ProTech and Detail Master Top studio. Five point harness is from ProTech and the Simpson decals are from Slixx. All of the chrome was stripped and painted with Alclad chrome, and the plug wires are Cat 6 phone wires (24 gauge). The parachutes are kit supplied and the parachute cords are craft store elastic cord painted silver and pinned on the chassis. The kit went together well, unfortunately I made some noticeable mistakes on the decals and construction, but overall I am happy with it. All comments and critiques are welcome, always open to learning.
  9. Very nice looking model, well done!
  10. One of my favorite front engine dragsters. Built it as a kid and trashed it, built it again about 10 years ago and it's in a buddies garage now on a shelf. Yours looks really good, thanks for sharing it.
  11. Showed up today on the Central Coast of California! Really looking forward to getting it out of the plastic wrap, glad to see it back!!

    '69 Impala SS

    My second car was a '69 Impala, white with a blue interior and a 250 horse , 350cubic inch engine. Bought it my junior year of high school (1976) from an old lady whose husband had just died. Didn't want the car, had my eye on a'68 Mercury Cougar, but my dad talked me into it. It had electric windows which always got stuck closed in the Arizona summer and stuck open in the winter. It was a great car though and my friends and i had some great times in it.
