  1. Thats a good one . Thanks , I appreciate it.
  2. Thank you very much. These help a lot.
  3. Thanks , I appreciate that. Look forward to seeing them.
  4. That makes sense. This is my favorite Glidden car. Trying to get it right. thanks.
  5. I'll be starting a build of this car soon. Waiting on a Rickie Smith kit from e-bay. Got the March '83 issue of Popular Hotrodding, some pretty good reference in there. Will be ordering decals from Slixx. My question is this. Does anyone know if the whole chassis is dark blue ? The article says that the roll cage is, I was just wondering about the rest of it. Any help will be appreciated.
  6. Thank you. I'll be posting pics of the finished model soon.
  7. The front wheels are from a Revell Chi Town Hustler kit. Kit chrome. Rear wheels are from an AMT Mustang funny car.
  8. I'm not to good with step by step pics, but my Willys is coming along. Got most of the wiring done. Started on the seatbelts. Using the front axle from the Revell kit. Easier to add spindles for the wheels I'm using. Front clip does'nt line up well with the kit hinge , so I'll be making one with brass rod and aluminum tubing. Thanks for looking.
  9. These two paintings are acrylic on canvas.
  10. Thank you my friend. I saw a hinge like that on the Speed City Resins page. I think thats what I'll do. I'm using the front axle from a Miss Deal kit, so I don't have to worry about that. Thanks a lot.
  11. Thanks. Only problem s I've had was getting that Revell transmission to fit under the chassis ( took a lot of grinding ) and the hinge on the front of the body. Think I'll just scratchbuild one.
  12. Thank you. I'll post more pics next week.
  13. Thank you. This is the bluest car I've ever painted LOL
  14. Thanks Nitro Barry. Hope to finish the engine tonight.
  15. Thank you, Misha. Trying to get back into the groove. I'll post some more pics soon.
  16. Been working on this AMT Willys gasser. Using Hemi engine from one of the Revell Willys kits. Got part of the wiring done yesterday. Paint is all three shades of Testors Extreme Lacquers blues. Cleared with Extreme Lacquer wet look clear. Polished with polishing kit. Blended with spray cans , no airbrush .Chassis painted with Tamiya semi-gloss black. Retired now trying to get back into the hobby. Thanks for looking.
  17. Great looking model . Love the paint. Do you have a link for the guy who sells the wire wheels.
  18. I found an article in a back issue of Scale Auto on building Dave Marcus' Monte Carlo. It's helped a lot.
  19. Thanks for the help , it's greatly appreciated.
  20. Nice, very clean. You got the stance right. Thats hard with some of the Revell funny cars.
  21. I just dug the Dale Earnhardt '88 Monte Carlo out of my stash and want to build a well detailed model ( I won't be going crazy with it though ) I am primarily a drag car modeler, though I have built Stock Cars in the past. I was wondering if anyone has any reference pics of the engine, chassis etc. The decals are ruined ,so I'll be going up to Southern Motorsports and Hobbies to get some new ones. I live about 100 mi from the Childress museum. One of these is in there , but last time I was there ,the hood was closed. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  22. I'll use Jungle Jim as an example again. Between '66 and '68 he went from a square tube chassis , long nose Nova to a shorter Logghe chassis Nova which was a half fiberglass half steel flopper. I don't know exact dates that this and that happened. Point I was making is that things were in a state of transition with a lot of creative interesting innovations happening.
