    The words "mini me" popped into my head.  Great job man.  I love to try to duplicate real cars, and you nailed this Nova!

    Tim, looks good bud.  The paint looks great, and you can only get better.  Your building skills are spot on, look forward to more.

    Nice work Shane.  Agree with others, stance looks fantastic, and the color is beautiful.

    Hi Jason. Love the work on the rollcage, you nailed the intent of keeping it hidden.  Great looking sleeper, most people wouldn't give it a second glance, until they heard the 427 introduce itself

    Hi Tom.  Looking great.  I knew this was your build because I subscribed on youtube and saw the tutorial on 'diamond cut' style wheels.  These look like the same wheels you did the tut on.  Love the youtube channel, have learned a lot from your techniques.  I just wish I could easily get Zero Paints here in the US.  Thanks for your work on showing everyone your results, it is inspirational.  Sean.

    I'm going to toss my two cents in here.  I'm working on the Testors/Franklin Mint 1/9 scale Harley soft tail, and wanted to do it Night Train style, so the chrome had to go.  First on list was Bleche White tire cleaner, I bought a bottle just for this.  Not good results, if I had left it in overnight, maybe.  Next was oven cleaner, big zero, didn't do a thing to this chrome.  Next up was bleach, which has been my "go to" stripper in the past, removed most of the plating on a few parts, but left about half the plating on the majority.  I have never had such a hard time with chrome stripping before.  So we come to purple Super Clean.  A few hours in there, every speck of plating, and the clear under it, gone!  I have a new "go to", and this stuff strips paint also!  Great to have a one bottle solution to these tasks.  Happy modeling everyone

    Nice job Cliff.  Snap tite or not it looks great.  I love the new Stingray and this is a good replica.

    Looks outstanding Michel.  I also do notice a large similarity to the Jaguar XJ220.

    You are a model builder after my own heart!  I love the detail painting.  The firewall and interior are looking great!  I think it is the small details that really draw you into the model and give you a kind of "virtual reality" experience.  Outstanding job Safak.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone.  I did look into getting a replacement engine for the TR, just not enough in the wallet.  Hopefully I can get a complete kit, and do the chassis 0724 in yellow and red as I had planned.

    Hi all.  I have a couple Ferraris on the bench right now, just kind of a coincidence.  I will be away from the workbench for about a week, so it was a good time to paint the bodies.  Being gone will keep me from putting my grubby mitts on them too soon.

    The TR250 is the Hasegawa kit, I was going to do a yellow and red scheme, but my yellow paint was kaput, no good.  Used up an old rattle can of Italian Red (Testors).  The Testarossa is the Revell "Miami Vice" kit.  That finish is airbrushed, the paint is one bottle of MM Pontiac engine blue metallic and one bottle of MM silver blue metallic thinned 1:1 with lacquer thinner.  Really pleased with both, these go a long way to helping me get over my phobia of painting bodies.  

    Bottom of engine.


    Side.  Unfortunately the TR250 will be a curbside.  The guy I got the kit from took the engine for another project and I got the rest of the kit.  I love to build out the engines, so it was a bummer but it will look great on the shelf.  I will try to post a few more soon.  Thanks for looking.  Sean

    Mark, it looks great bud!  I like working from pictures also if I can, I enjoy more if Im trying to replicate something specific.  Looking forward to more builds, Sean.

    Beautiful model Carl.  I am going to have to try some HOK one of these days, they look like they just lay down on there so nice.  Thanks for sharing.  Sean
