  1. Just an overall great looking model, Rusty!
  2. Just chiming in here for clarification. Mark seems to have knowledge of these kits. I could have sworn that Tom over at Hobby Heaven / Spotlight Hobbies had said one time that the Chevelle was a one and done kinda thing. Maybe he said that the annual was modified to make the stocker kit and never put back? Maybe he said that it, (the stocker), was only released once and modified to something else? This was many years ago so my memory on that statement is as clear as mud. I would love to hear what the correct story is. I have the original Chevelle Stocker that I built as a kid and I have a fairly pristine kit that I picked up at NNL East a number of years ago. I also have a spare original decal sheet.
  3. Another beauty, Dale! What are your thoughts on the kit? I have the other livery.
  4. Absolutely gorgeous, Dale! Such a good looking car. Love the livery too. You really did a great job on it.
  5. Now there’s one you don’t see very often. Very cool! You really did a nice job on this, she looks great!
  6. Well, Tom, I feel good about picking the GTO...lol. I think that is a good choice. Enough detail to look good but not so much to overwhelm you. One thing I did not mention in our conversation is that I also, more times than not, pick a model that I do not have a strong attachment to. Let’s face it, we are going to build all of them and they are all going to be Best of Show winners...lol, but in the previous 14 years that I have done this there are several years where I screwed up the model so bad I didn’t even come close to finishing it and put it back in the box and never looked at it again. And oddly for me, that didn’t bother me at all. I just didn’t have that strong of a feeling for the model.
  7. Great looking model, Mitch! I really like these race cars and that is such a gorgeous livery. Good job and thanks for sharing!
  8. Thanks, Larry! Thanks, Bob! The car was pretty much done in 24 hours but I left some items for when I was rested. I always pick relatively simple kits for the Annual 24 Hour Build. Tom, thanks for the nice words. As I said to Bob, (reply above yours), I had it pretty much completed in 24 hours. Did some final things when I got rested up. To answer your question about this year’s build, it is January 30/31. I am one of the 5 founding members of this iteration of the Annual 24 Hour Build. This year is our 15th year. We always build on the same weekend as the 24 Hours of Daytona. We have a Facebook page and that is where everything is posted and shared. If you don’t do FB we may be able to work around it. Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with. It is a fun time.
  9. Thank you, Zen! Thanks, Robert! And honestly that is the whole idea behind the Annual 24 Hour Build. To harken back to the days as a kid when you ripped them open and started building them, no worries, no fuss. Thank you, Chang! Lol, I hear you. It was a fun little build.
  10. With the 15th Annual 24 Hour Model Build coming up in a few weeks I thought I would share last years build with you. This was built box stock with one exception. The two piece rear slicks were garbage and I used a set of aftermarket ones from Speed City Resin. I almost completed it in the allotted 24 hours but I saved some of the finer details for when I was rested. Not much else to say about it. Let me know if you have any questions about it. Thanks for looking.
  11. I just wanted to say "thank you" to everyone who took the time to comment on the T/A. It is much appreciated!
  12. Here are a few pics of my finished T/A. The WIP can be seen here: MPC 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am - WIP: Model Cars - Model Cars Magazine Forum In that thread I explain why I did what I did and how I got what I got...lol. Thanks for giving my less than stellar model a look!
  13. That turned out very nice, John! Thanks for sharing it!
  14. Ryan, it is great to see you building this. I built this kit, (not the same livery), a couple of years ago and it is one of my favorite builds. I’m really looking forward to seeing what you do with yours.
