  1. Great job my friend, can't wait for your Ford P/U Gasser meets my Chevy P/U Gasser at Fulton.
  2. how did this project turn out, love to see some more progress pics and the finished car. thanks
  3. Hi Mike, Thanks. I used Apple Barrel acrylic paint from Walmart. I mix dark grey and black until l get the color l want. I hope this helps. Jim
  4. thanks Mark.. I am glad i came back. Best model forum online. You can find my eBay juerkvitz.
  5. thanks for the kind words.. I sold that Nova last winter. I do have pics of the build and one i posted on eBay. here are a few..
  6. I haven posted in this forum for a few years now. Life etc.. The amount of talent that is here now is mind bottling.. ( VGG ). Anyway, I had picked up a couple resin '37 Willy's pickups off eBay on the cheap years ago. I had planned on building a version loosely based on the Silver Dollar Willy's Gasser pickup. The project never took off and there the resin sat on my self while l did other builds for eBay. A couple months ago l decided l wanted to build a Willy's Gasser, but l just wasn't "feeling" the truck version any longer. So, I chopped off the front fenders off of one of the resin trucks and put them on the AMT 1940 Willy's Coupe. Here is where I am so far. I hope to have it complete and for sale on eBay buy the end of January. Thanks for looking all comments are welcome. Jim
  7. Very cool build, one of your best. ! nice job brother.
  8. I been away from this board for a while. Anyone know if there is going to be a model show in Fulton NY this November 2020.?
  9. I have ordered parts from them in the past and they do have great products. However, I placed an order on July 17 and have yet to receive it. The items have already been paid for through PayPal. Can someone tell me a what to contact them.? The Contact Us button on there website does not work. Can someone tell me an email address or a phone number.? I don't want to be go through Paypal to resolve this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jim
  10. Man, I love this build. I keep coming back and looking at it. I also love the overall "feel" of the pics. Great Job.
  11. Nice job, another great build.
  12. Been fallowing this for a while. Looks great. Don't let the busted windshield stop ya. How does the one from Lindberg fit.? Maybe try rubber cement, that's all i use for my windows. The clear stuff you get in bicycle tube repair works great. It's clear , but it take some time to cure.
  13. Looks great. Love that engine and overall stance. I'm not a huge pro-street fan, but this is killer. Nice Job so far.
  14. Wow, fantastic build, really captures the era. nice job.
  15. Man, this is a great build. ya really captured the feel of a Saturday night special.
  16. I like where this is going.. I'm in.
  17. Thanks again for the compliments, It's nice to hear opinions of my builds. The rear tires are out of AMT rail kits ( Garlits ).. i put them on a home made chuck made from an old screwdriver. I attach it to a drill, put the tire on it and run 400 grit sand paper , then 600 grit on the tread surface. I then run 800 grit on the side walls. Then I clean off the excess rubber, apply Shabo dry transfer lettering. Then hit the tire sidewall with Testers dull coat to "set" the lettering. I do the same to the front, but just the tread as they arn't run at such a heavy strain as the rear tires are on a real dragster. As for the rims, the rear are 2 piece. The inner rim is from Fireball resin ( great stuff, check out his carbs. ) cleaned up, lugs drilled out and studs inserted. Then that is glued to an aluminum outer rim i got years ago, I can't remember where. The front rim and tires are from AMT Winged Express kit. The only thing i added was an old custom knock off center.
  18. Walter, i change the heading, I read '56 Ford Vicky Gasser when I first posted it. thanks for the awesome comparison to Roth.
  19. thanks guys, I really appreciate all the kind words.
