  1. Nacho Z added a post in a topic 3 Cushion Billiards & Snooker   

    I was stationed at RAF Alconbury/ RAF Upwood in the 80's.  The Rec. Center had a snooker table.  I learned the basics and loved to play.  Bigger table and smaller balls and pockets, if I remember correctly.

    Now that is some eye candy!

    When I first saw this, I was on my cell phone.  I had to fire up the laptop just so I could see bigger pictures!   My first car, many years ago, was an Olds Cutlass, so I have a special spot in my heart for this body style.  What a great model!  As Dan Tier said a few post above, I just keep on looking at this one.  Thanks for sharing.

    Wow!  That is just beautiful!  I would love to see more pictures of this.  What a great color.
  6. Nacho Z added a post in a topic What's the best way to blacken panel lines?   

    Snake is right, do not just add black into the panel lines, especially on a lighter colored car, it will be too stark.  In my opinion, I have seen some very nice, straight panel lines that had black added to them and it actually detracted from the model.  There are several different ways of doing it.  I had had good results "pre-shading", (to borrow a phrase from our military modeling brothers).  I add the black on top of the primer before shooting color coats.
    As always, practice on a spare body if you can.  Good luck!

    David, I think you're getting this model building thing down......  Another very nice NASCAR model from your workbench.

    I can't even begin to pretend to know how you feel or what is running through your mind right now.  I hope they have caught it in its earliest stages.  There are so many people pulling for you, sending positive thoughts and prayers your way.  It will be good to see you when you are a proud member of the cancer survivors club!  Go kick some cancer ass, Harry!!!

    Very, very impressive!  I'll be following this one for sure.

    What a great looking model of a pretty cool car!   Nice clear photos too.  I'm glad to see that it is a nice model to build.  I have all of these kits.  I really need to break one out and give it a go.

    The hood fit of this kit brings up an interesting point that I have mentioned in other threads.  Harry, I know you do not compete but your models are definitely contest worthy and no doubt contest winners.  I would bet money that if you were to put this model on a contest table, spectators as well as judges, would say "what a nice model, too bad the hood does not fit right".  But the fact is the hood on the prototype didn't fit right either.  My point is, older race cars are seldom pristine racing machines and if you build a correct replica, you are more than likely going to get dinged in a model contest.  I have actually placed a picture of the real race car's "wart" next to my model so that the judges could see that my model was built to replicate the real car.
