  1. Where do you find YOUR inspiration ?

    The H.A.M.B. site. Building kits that I wish were out when I was a kid in the middle of the last century. Members of the model car club I belong to., it's interesting to see everyone's version of the same idea for a build. The problem is finishing.
  2. This HAS to be THE crapiest box art EVER!!!!

    There are so many more bad box art examples than the one that started this discussion. Most experienced modelers will look past the box and see what their vision of the kit can be made out of it, however to a new modeler I would think the people running the model companies would make an attempt to entice them with attractive box art. That said a creative artists rendering costs more than an afterthought, which much box art seems to represent. Generally Round 2 retro box art and Moebius generally seems to have attractive box art.
  3. 1930 Ford Coupe Flathead Hot Rod

    A very nice build, a lot of thought and good building skills went into your build
  4. Speed City

    I just wanted to compliment Scott at Speed City Resin for outstanding service, I placed an order on June 19 and was astounded when the mailman delivered my complete order on June 23, yes in the same year. We all have had horror stories of poor service or of being ripped off so I thought it only right to let everyone know about good service when it is received. I have ordered from Speed City in the past and have always had good service, not to mention that his products are unique and well cast. A treasure trove for the vintage drag race modeler. Ed
  5. RIP Don Fahrni 2/3/18

    I was saddened to hear of his passing, I only knew him through photos of his work in the magazines which was impressive.

    Thanks again for all who commented. The windows were from tinted acetate I got at an art supply store, there are many colors available, yellow, orange, blue , red , & green.

  8. 57 Belair hot police - MADE IN BRAZIL

    I liked what you did with the chassis, it came out really nice !
  9. '27 Turtledeck T dry lakes racer

    Nice to see a salt flats car. Great looking model !
  10. Moebius 1965 Cyclone A/FX 427 SOHC

    I have come back to look at this build several times. Jason you did a wonderful job of building an A/FX car of the period, this was the last hurrah for the traditional factory A/FX effort as the altered wheel base Mopars were getting all the attention in the press. The attention to detail in your model is outstanding and is somewhat subtle but makes the model special. The teardrop hood is a personal touch and a lot of the cars of that era had one off pieces that weren't seen on other cars. I enjoy seeing the S/S, A/FX, stock bodied cars replicated in model form and yours is one of the best examples.
  11. Chevy Biscayne 1964 NYC taxi

    I like what you did with the car, must be in early '64 as it isn't beat up too badly yet.
  12. My idea of a Hot Rod Ford.

    A really nice build, paint, stance you have it all.
  13. "Orange Clunker Car" - MPC General Lee

    You did a wonderful job, thanks for the work in progress photos. I'm not that familiar with the Dukes car and would have overlooked the subtle changes you did to the body & frame. The casual observer would assume the kit came that way, your building skills make it seem like it came that way, nice build !
  14. Chaparral 2H

    A very nice build, the scratch built items worked out great. Not a successful car but Jim Hall was always trying out new ideas, most of the time they worked. Again good looking model !

    Mike, I used some Metalizer aluminum paint on the carbs, then did a wash of some flat black to bring up some of the great details on the Fireball carbs, and added a bit of Testors silver to add some contrast, also a bit of brass on some of the fittings. Thanks for the compliments on the build.
