  1. Really nice build!! I love the 1/16th scale front engine dragsters and funny cars. It would sure be nice if Revell would reboot them!
  2. Great job on a very nice looking car!
  3. Which model are you talking about Tom? The NASCAR truck is normally in a plastic display case, I just took it out and set it on top of the cabinet for the picture. The Bigfoot is on a 12 x 12 base which unfortunately I have never been able to find an affordable case for.
  4. Luckily my office is locked and custodial only goes in during the day when I am there. They are great conversation starters especially when people realize they are built models and not diecast.
  5. For the first time in my working career I have my own office so naturally I had to put a few models in it. I recently bought this case from an antique store that was going out of business and I thought it would be perfect for the office. My wife loved the idea because it got some models out of the craft room and I loved it because now I have space in the craft room to build more!
  6. Very cool looking! Good job on taking the painting "plunge", you are a braver man than I.
  7. Those are both great looking models! Well done!
  8. This turned out to be one of my most disappointing builds! I was not impressed with the level of engine detail, but was really happy with the interior detail. I used the Aoshima detail up parts kit which provided excellent details for the interior: gauges, seat belts, floor mats, pedals, and aventador floor plates. Unfortunately after fighting with the opening doors for hours and repainting the doors twice I ended up gluing them shut this losing all ther nice interior details. The mesh screen material for all of the vents makes a huge difference in the final detail. The kit went together ok, I knew it was going to stretch my talent level. I'm sure the majority of the issues were my own fault and not the kit. All in all it's done, my frustration is over and it is going on the shelf.
  9. That is a great build of a beautiful race car!
  10. Very nice build, looks nice and clean. I really like that seatbelt set, definitely looks authentic.
  11. Gorgeous paint job, and a beautiful build. Well done!!
  12. Looks good Ray! It's really frustrating when you put in the time and effort to try and make every model as good as you can, and end up disappointed. But in the end it goes on the shelf or the case and sits there looking good!!
