  1. 1928 Stutz Black Hawk LSR

    Thanks Dann! It is a pretty simple kit but such a unique and important car. It will be my first resin kit, so we'll see how it goes. It is beautifully casted, no problems that I can find. I know this is not much of an update. I researched what to do to prepare the resin before you begin work, paint, etc. And of course, there are many different opinions! I thought I would play it safe and incorporate the two most prevalent opinions and/or suggestions. I soaked the parts in Westley's, now Black Magic's, Bleche-Wite and then scrubbed them with an old toothbrush. I rinsed them off and then... I soaked them in soapy water for several hours and then scrubbed them again.
  2. Fujimi Ferrari F430 Challenge

    Just wanted to say thank you to all of you who took a minute to comment on the F430. I really do appreciate it!

    Paul, you Sir, are one heck of a model builder!! That is a beautiful car!
  4. 1928 Stutz Black Hawk LSR

    Now that I have the Fujimi Ferrari F430 done, I was trying to decide what to build next. The F430 was box stock but I spent a good amount of time on it as I want to enter it in the Box Stock class at model contests. So, what's next? Something simple? A full blown, detailed build? After seeing Droogie's 1:43 Miller 91 model, I remembered my Etzel's Speed Classics / American Racing Miniatures Frank Lockhart's 1928 LSR Stutz Black Hawk kit. I have never built or even used anything made of out resin. Nor have I really messed with white metal. The Stutz Black Hawk kit is made of just resin and white metal parts. In my opinion, parts wise, it is a very simple kit. Assembly may be another thing altogether. I have checked out various message boards and YouTube videos on preparing and building resin kits. I think I can do this! I will try to do regular updates and as always, explain why I do what I did, whether right or wrong. I am open to suggestions and comments, good or bad. Here are pictures of the kit and contents. I have no idea why I get the dreaded 404 error every doggone time I try to add pics to this post. Right below, I added the pictures without any problem whatsoever. Grrrrr.

    Looking forward to watching this one!
  6. Strickler Camaro

    Great looking hotrod!, (to quote John Force). I like seeing this old straight liners. You did a nice job on this one!
  7. Fujimi Ferrari F430 Challenge

    To further my point, I was just over on FB in the Tamiya Model Magazine group and saw a beautiful Rothmans Porsche go down in flames due to Zero 2K clear totally screwing up ALL of the decals....

    Very cool!! Is this one of the original kits of Bigfoot? I bought one while stationed overseas in 1986ish. I thought it was one of the coolest kits.
  9. Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona/Competizione *

    Shoot, I feel like such a mooch. I'm the one who is always learning here. I feel like I never have much to offer in the way of information. This model is just getting better and better!
  10. Dale jr. ( Elvis Budweiser) update 9/3

    Just saw this, not sure how I missed it. For me, the ride height can make or break a NASCAR model. You nailed it! Everything else looks just as good as the ride height!
  11. Der Autobahn unfall

    I have come so, so, soooo close to this but have never done it. I know I would be even madder after I did it. On the other hand, I have lost it and destroyed other, more expensive items in the past...lol.
  12. Miller 91

    Hey guys, check out American Racing Miniatures. I'm thinking they have this kit(?) I'm not 100% sure if they are still in business or not. Even if they are not, you may still find their kits for sale.
  13. Miller 91

    That has got to be very small! It looks fantastic. Great model of a really cool subject!
