  1. Ford GT40 66 Fujimi Street Version

    You built what was in my head! I have one of the ancient IMC kits, and always wanted to do a street version. That, is beyond stunning!
  2. Johan 1960 Plymouth restoration

    Gorgeous paint and foil work, you really nailed that one!
  3. 1960 Pontiac Laurentian & Scratch Built Travel Trailer

    Great job on the Laurentian! As a canuck, I love seeing a Canadian Pontiac. And that trailer is cool!
  4. The 1968 Chevelle SS396- Grotto Blue

    I love the color, the stance, the wheels . . . . I love everything about your Chevelle!
  5. 1976 Cadillac Coupe DeVille by Modelhaus

    Talk about gorgeous! I wanted to get one of these, but sadly I waited too long, and Modelhaus shut their doors. A friend and co-worker of mine, who passed away three years ago owned the real thing, and I was going to build a replica of his car. You did an awesome job on that Coupe de Ville!
  6. AMT 1957 Ford Thunderbird

    Totally stunning, Randy! The first model I ever built was a gift, but the AMT ' 57 T-bird was the first kit I ever bought for myself, the Modern Classics issue. I did the typical horrible job of a ten year old at building it. brush painted, glue everywhere, etc. Never, in all those years since then, did I think that it was possible to produce such a beautiful scale replica from one of those kits. Great job!
  7. 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1

    What a gorgeous build! And I'm partial to that color combo, for obvious reasons. Congratulations on not losing the mirrors!
  8. Moebius 1961 Pontiac Ventura

    Totally sharp Randy, and it looks terrific with your other Ponchos!
  9. Ford 5 Window coupe

    There's nothing quite as appealing to my eye, as a full fendered street rod. And that one's gorgeous!
  10. From what I can see of the box photos, the Miss Deal parts do look nice. I'm going to be using the block from the AMT ' 57 Chrysler, and I think those pieces would look nice on there, and more period correct. I'll get to the hobby shop . . . . if it ever stops snowing.
  11. I have also been eyeing the Revell K.S. Pittman ' 41 Willys. I think it's the best bet, and it's going to have a few more parts I need. Gramps, thanks but I know the lhs has the Willys kit. Wanted to go there today, but we're getting dumped on with sleet, and the roads are BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH. There's also going to be a companion build to this ' 32, a ' 47 Ford sedan, which I'll use this resin ' 48 to build.
  12. I checked out some pictures online, and I'm liking what I see. That might just do it!
  13. Without getting in to a ton of detail, I need to try and find the parts to reproduce the top part of the engine, seen in this photo. Kit parts, or resin pieces wouldn't really matter. Those are Hillborn injectors, and an early GMC blower sitting on top of a Weiand manifold. I don't need exact reproductions, just something close enough. I've been trying to get this project off the ground for a couple years, so any help would be appreciated. What's it for? A ' 32 Ford five five window coupe street machine, with full fenders.
  14. 1961 Pontiac Catalina

    Thanks all, I'm glad you like it. I just had to add one more detail, so I carefully drilled a hole and added a parts box aerial.
  15. 1957 Ford Thunderbird.

    This isn't the first model I ever built, 'cause that one was a gift. But it's the first kit I ever bought for myself, the AMT ' 57 Bird Modern Classics issue. You've done an outstanding job on this example, in a not often seen color.
