    This looks like a nice kit with many possibilities.  I wonder what variations are coming ?  A/FX   S/S ??  We can only hope.

    I received my '57 Chevy interior pieces from Ed and they are really nice, should make the model stand out.  The service I received from Ed was top notch, prompt and the pieces were perfect.  If you are remotely thinking about getting any of these interiors, get them before they aren't available.

    This is really a beautiful build, very realistic.  You did an excellent job building this model.

    I want to thank everyone who participated in the show, to all those who traveled, especially to Michael who came from Germany. Thanks to our vendors who had a lot of interesting items, my wallet is a little lighter.  Mate Mayer the U.S. distributor of Gravity Colors who had his line up of model paints available and our sponsor, Thanks, the show wouldn't have been the same without  your assistance. Also the city of Deerfield Beach.
    Hope to see all of you next year at out 15th annual show.
    We are having our Mopar show on Sunday,  March 6, 2016,  one day event,  Mopar models only,  lots of fun.

    A superb model,  excellent attention to detail, subtle weathering and paint work. If you didn't know it was a model it would pass for the real thing.  Nice job John.

    Last call for all South Florida Model Car enthusiasts, the show is two days away.  Parents bring the children and participate in the free make 'n Take.  Builders bring out some of your efforts, fifteen trophies awarded, you may bring one home.  Pick up that needed part or kit from some of the vendors.  Stop by and see some of S. Florida's nicest models.   9 - 5 p.m. Saturday  11 - 14 - 15.  Hope to see all of you Saturday.

  13. echo added a post in a topic '55 gasser   

    First of all thanks for all of you looking and especially those of you who took the time to comment.
    The grill started out as the AMT '55 Bel Air grill, my first idea was to sand away the back to make it see through however the kits plastic mesh was too shallow and came apart, perhaps someone with better skills could have had success. I removed the center of the grill leaving the raised surround, I had a Model Car garage photo etch '55 Chevy detail set which included a grill, however it was for a Revell kit. The fit was close , not perfect but when I epoxied the mesh to the grill surround and filed away a tiny bit of overhanging photo etch it looked and fit o.k.
                                                Thanks again for the positive comments.          Ed
  14. echo added a post in a topic Best 60s dragster?   

    I'm partial to the kit you have, the Tony Nancy double dragster kit and the '64 Garlits car. They both have all the parts to construct a nice car with a little bit of scratch building.  The  re-released kits the Young American and later Don Garlits cars would probably be closer to what you are looking for in a kit, just cut off or modify them to just have the rear sheet metal body.
    My own favorite era for dragsters is '64 - '66.  125" t0 150" frames.  There were two brothers building models featured in the old "Rod & Custom Model Cars" magazine in 1964, the Younts brothers. the magazine did a three issue feature on their build of a state of the art dragster of that time, it is still good reading today. Does anyone on the forum know what happened to the Younts brothers ? Sorry if this got a little off topic here.
    Also you might want to look into photo etch wire wheels to replace the kit wheels , a weak point in all dragster kits in my opinion.

    Tim, I really enjoyed that you took the time to put a caption with the picture. I usually just pick and choose what pictures interest me but I looked at all your pictures of this event, it was the next best thing to being there in person. Thanks.   Ed
