  1. It's a really old body that was from "Flash Point Motorsports" I have one stashed away in depths of the hobby room. The pictures I found on Facebook were from 2013, I can't remember when I purchased mine. They've been out of business for some time.
  2. The QuickAluminum arrived today. It was a lot larger amount than I expected. Thanks again for sharing the information. Your build is looking better every new post.
  3. I've used 91% Alcohol to smooth JB Weld after it starts to get real tacky. Thanks for the tip on the water. Looking forward to receiving mine. Your model is looking really great. Nice styling changes.
  4. Thanks for the tip on the "Quikaluminum". I found some online with free shipping. Seems vendors on Amazon were second party and all wanted around $8.00 shipping. This vendor accepts PayPal and has "guest" check out without setting up an account. (The photo is not a link to their web site) https://www.quikwood.com/apps/webstore/products/show/6009685
  5. Could you please post some current photos of it? Thanks ! Jimmy
  6. I ordered from him, and it took a while to get my stuff. It was as if he was selling stuff not in hand. It was getting close to the time limit Paypal allows to file a claim for undelivered goods. Finally after mentioning filing a complaint I received my stuff. He had me call him, and he talks a good story, but I doubt I would buy anything else from him. If it was stated , the items will need to be poured that's one thing. In stock sales would be better at least on eBay.
  7. The rear fenders and headlights really take that car up a notch. Looking forward to seeing more.
  8. I called them today to find out my options (this was before I received the email) and they told me about the FSM offer. I had already subscribed to it, so I guess it was ok. I asked what other magazines were being cancelled and she told me, a beading one, and Garden Railroads. I asked if it might go just digital, and she told me no. They blamed the pandemic and "changing tastes". That makes the fourth magazine I subscribed to go out of publication. Hot Rod Deluxe, Car Craft, Street Rodder Deluxe bit the dust earlier this year.
  9. Tim, thanks for the reply and the suggestions. Regards,Jimmy
  10. Tim, incredible work as always! I've seen people using "renshape" but I do not know where to purchase some. Any ideas for sources? While I'm seeking sources I've searched high and low to find some "tin plate" I believe it's called. I must have called every printer I could find a number for. Congratulations for accolades on your job of building the Bantam. It's one of the most detailed pieces of art I've ever seen. I'm always excited to see your next post of progress on your cars. Regards, Jimmy
  11. One of the most incredible pieces of workmanship, and artistic skills ever !
  12. John, awesome work as usual. Is this engine from the Anikin Skywalker kit I sent you? If it is I'm glad I was able to contribute to such an incredible build. If it's not, I'm sure the model you do use it on will be just as impressive. Regards, Jimmy
  13. Check the list price on this listing for the new Model Cars Contest Issue 2019
  14. Right place at the right time. Usually works out the other way for me, "a day late and a dollar short"
