      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

  2. Red Alert

    Neil, Swap the rear tires from side to side, you have them wrinkling in the wrong direction, unless you are launching in reverse

There will be more added as well. There are new decals under ..... Kit decals, Gasser, Super Stock, Pro Stock, Wheel Standers, Dragster, B/FX, Mod. Prod., Slot Car and Funny Car ... The Custom Body Dart is also available in 16th scale Alan
  8. MCW orders?

    Yes Dave is very good and gets orders out in a very reasonable time frame . Order with confidence. Alan
  9. MCW orders?

    Here is one I am working on. Reshaping the rear window opening to the correct shape and will thin and slant the door posts to correct the angle. Dave's casting are very nice and I have about 20 of them
  10. Are we limited to the total amount of pics we can post ? I have seen others literally post 100 at a shot . I am trying to make a new post and it says I only have 0.03MB So it does not matter how small I make the pic it is too large ????
  11. Is Modelhaus selling there molds?

    It is not the molds as they have a very limited life, it is all the masters that are important and the know how on how to cast.
  12. 1930 Ford Altered

    Use the spokes if you like, Altereds did use those despite others claims here ........ Many pics are out there with those wheels
  13. 1930 Ford Altered

    I like where this is going, but, redo the motor mounts to the correct position and set them further back on the sides of the block. If you are unsure to where exactly just google a pic ......
  14. Well here is another project just started, as inspired by Roger and his south side street racer builds, THANKS Roger lol. This is an AMT 67 Camaro using the 68 Camaro interior, grill and tail lights. This will represent a late 70's early 80's street/strip car with the exception of the tires. Instead of using the superior Revell chassis etc. I opted to use the AMT chassis and added scratched sub frame connectors that are cut into the floor, and rear frame brace, scratched a drive shaft loop, which I see I lost a bolt head, will have to add another one. A scratched fuel tank sump which I cast from resin along with all the other resin parts here. Decided to also use the kit engine but with my scratched Moroso valve covers, and other pieces. The 4 speed is going to be cut off and replaced with the 2 speed Powerglide and another of my home made deep transmission pans. Will be constructing some Lakewood slapper bars which I already have made decals for on a couple of the decal sheets I offer. I will also scratch a vintage B&M shifter as well. Will also install a Lakewood 3 point roll bar. The rear drag radials are from Chief Joseph who's parts are second to none btw. The kit diff. will be used with cover cut off and replaced with a finned aluminum cover that is a Perry's Resin piece. I find the parts in the kit can be made to look quite presentable if detailed up. I will moderately detail this with wiring, plumbing a little photo etched etc. Color I think will be a light to medium blue. Hope you like it and it inspires you like Roger's did for me...... Alan
  15. 68 Camaro New Project

    Not on the 68, actually yes, I have decided to switch it back to a 67 lol....... but I did post updates on the 69 a couple of days ago .......
  16. 69 Camaro project update 2

    Thanks Jesse
  17. More done .... frame connectors cut into the floor, drive shaft loop installed and new leaf spring front perches installed. Next up, shackles for the rear of the leaf springs .... Alan
  18. 69 Camaro project update 2

    The only problem was I had three personal losses all at once ....... that slowed me down but I am really busy with custom orders and regular orders. My regular orders have been all caught up and mailed out a while ago so , no, no problems. I guess that is why I went into a building mode, to keep my mind off of the bad stuff. Alan
  19. 69 Camaro Project Update

    Thank you for the kind words, sorry but no I won't be casting these ........ Get out your saw, files and scratch building supplies Alan
  20. The pics will tell all but, added cross member for new shock mount location, refabricated frame rails for larger tires, narrowed stock fuel tank. Yet to add frame connectors and drive shaft loop.
  21. 69 Camaro Project

    Once again switching to a TH400. Scratched Lakewood slapper bars, have to finish the snubbers, J bolts and shock mounts. Wheels are from the 69 Nova with the rears widened by first resin casting wheels with the same lip but fit the larger tires. Cut section needed from resin wheels then fit to modified Nova wheels. This will also have a scratched 6 point cage, frame connectors and drive shaft loop. This is actually a replica of Div. 7's, Super Stock record holder Buck Kinney built Camaro that was on the street in Port Coquitlam BC in the late 70's early 80's. It was that GM silvery light green with the flat black hood and black wheels, just a no nonsense big block street pounder ....
  22. Revell Volkswagen Rabbit - Clearly Scale Engine

    What Walter said ! ........... But that being said, this is just a plain cool little hot rod, in a Datsun 510 sort of way . Love the stainless exhaust detail as well as that killer little engine. Any pics of that engine kit ? Alan
  23. This has many of my own mastered and cast parts as well as some resin copies of straight up kit stuff. Switching over to a TH400. In the works are scratch build Lakewood ladder bars.
  24. 66 El Camino project

    Thanks Pete, I like doing the subtle things that most would miss. On this the lower control arms have been boxed with three plates per side, holes in the firewall for hood hinges all filled with modified hinges to fit and raise the rear of the hood, fuel tank sump added etc. These were a common practice back in the day of limited after market parts ......
  25. I have some printed so yes but have not put them up yet ...... Send me an email @ alan@whoopiekatdecals.com if you want to get a set.
