    Hey Guys, wanted to help with a few questions, the original wheels I used were ARII wheels. They came in a set for fronts and rears plus tires. They could be readily found in hobby shops, but no more. I see them on eBay for about 50-60 bucks. They used to cost 25 in the store. Still pricey but now they're ridiculous.  The next best choice I found are the monogram slotted mags like in the Tom Daniel Vette, and some of his other kits. Good luck!

    Thank you. I used tamayi paints and used automotive clear, hardener and reducer sprayed out of my badger air brush

    Here's an update, finally got the colors done, not without problems though! I was removing the tape after the blue, and dropped it on the roof, nicking it !!!!!! So... back to the paint booth, but I got it done.

    Hey guys, wanted to share an update on the Sox&Martin 1/24 Cuda. Finally got the hood/scoop right and got the first white coats on the body, not without a lot of redoing! I removed the molded in windshield water bottle and battery and filled them in with sheet plastic. I'm going to finish the white, then add the blue, then the red! I also received all my resin carbs and manifold and photo etched hardware.

    Thanks Snake! Just got back home from a Jeep Jamboree trip in MO. HOPEFULLY I'll have all the work done on the hood and I will start paint.

    Sox and. Martin Cuda 1/24
    Hey guys, just started another Sox and Martin Cuda...in 1/24. ( I know there's so many builds of this car. I'm going to make these as detailed as I can, along with the Prudohmme Monza. I knew if I did the 1/24 scale I'd have to scratch build the scoop, but I wanted to give it a try. After 2 days using sheet plastic I'm happy with the results. I also filled in the side fins (gills) and side marker lights and removed the trim moldings at the bottom and molded in hood pins. I ordered photo etched and resin for the Cuda and Monza. Here's the first pics.

    Prudohmme Army Monza
    Hey guys, just started the Prudohmme Army Monza, 1/25. I found one on eBay and got the decals from Chris' friend, Chuck. After that unbelievable 1/16 car, I was inspired to start this one. So far I've molded in the nose and quarter windows and cleaned up the underside.
