  1. I am calling these DONE! Here’s both the 70 and 71. Thanks for looking!
  2. Beautiful job! That color is striking!??
  3. Hi Joe, yeah it’s crazy! But, I wanted to keep track of the time for these two. Here’s the engines plumbed and wired...as much as I wanted to. Building the fuel systems and wiring was the effort of 17 hrs. I even wired the firing orders correctly. ( I think )The fuel system is not 100% correct as the fuel line for the back carb should have a T Fitting with a hose running under the hi rise then connecting to the front 4 way t fitting. That being said, I was still happy with the outcome. Thanks for looking!
  4. Here’s the 71 mocked up, checking fitting. So far so good! I hope u guys like it.
  5. Yeah, I’d read that somewhere on the forum and when I was test fitting, sure enough it doesn’t fit with the side glass. Which is ok, I’m not going to use it anyway. I want to see the interior! Thanks for the tip!
  6. Here’s a few pics of the 71 interior completed as accurately as I could do. The 70 is in progress. Thanks for the interest!
  7. Thanks! Yes, I’ll be using ford engine blue, as from what I read King painted all the engines he built blue. I Have another Johan body but didn’t have a conversion kit so I used the Revell. So far I’m happy with the results. Interiors will be next...
  8. Thanks for the compliments. Both blues are tamiya TS 19 light blue and TS54 metallic blue. It looked like the roofs were a little different shades of blue between the 70 and 71 but it’s hard to tell even with photos. They’re actually pretty close though.
  9. I decided for the last 2 models I will build I wanted to do both the 70 & 71 SnM Cuda’s. I know these have been done many times and the ones posted are outstanding. With that being said I wanted to have both done as accurately as possible, using reference photo’s from the Sox and Martin book, articles of some built and pics of ones posted. The 70 is the Revell kit and the 71 is the Johan kit. I am doing them side by side, so everything is double but will show the differences between both years. Here’s where I’m at now. Every step of the way has required refixing, refining and touch up because I won’t let any imperfection slip by, at least I’ll try. I’m going to plum them with fuel and ignition wires. I’m going to add photo etched parts for some added detail. The bodies took 60 hrs alone! Thanks for looking.
  10. Beautiful job! Here’s a smokin’ Joe’s / camel powered car in a cup that I found years ago.
  11. Hey Guys, I’m working on the Marrs Boys 63 Vette and I’m not sure what kit I could use for the correct headers. Are they just coming straight down or running underneath? I’ve found some articles on the car but nothing that shows any good engine pics. I did read there was a 396 in it. Any help is appreciated. Thanks,
  12. WOW! GOD Bless America and all those who serve!
  13. Thank you! I’m trying to decide which scenery to go with...probably as he’s chasing him down the road or where he’s pushing him into the speeding train. Either way it’ll all be in a 1/18 display case. I already did the Vanishing Point ending scene where he’s driving into the bulldozers as he’s being chased by the police!
  14. Hey Guys, just wanted to post a pic of my Duel movie scene. I finally finished the truck and car. I’ll be starting the diorama soon. Thanks for looking. Next will be a movie/TV car museum diorama. Thanks for looking.
  15. He Guys, I’ve started working on some diorama’s and wanted to show this pic of the diorama I did of the final scene from one of my all time favorite movies. Thanks for looking.
