  1. 1960 Pontiac Bonneville

    Very nice! Did you use the Molotow pen or shoot it through an air brush?
  2. It's the AMT Escalade from the hood to the rear doors, rear fenders and tailgate with the Revell Silverado rear window bulkhead and shortened pickup bed. Scratch built bed cover with the Escalade brake light and modified Silverado frame.

    Thanks guys, I'm glad some folks like it as much as I do. Blame it on my A.D.D. Like so many other builds I get to point where I just want to get it done and move on to the other 5 or 6 projects on the bench. I also wanted to have it finished in time for last weeks show in Tampa, which by the way was a great show with some utterly phenomenal builds. I'm trying to get myself to the point of focusing on 1 build at a time so they are truly finished but with so much going on in life it would take years to finish one project. But maybe that's what it takes to get to the next level. Thanks again!
  4. AMG Mercedes Benz 300SEL 6.8 "Red Pig"

    OMG, the AMG Red Pig. Please tell us who to contact to get one. Keep the pics coming.
  5. 1959 "Wild Cad" Custom

    Wow indeed. That's going to be one killer Caddy.
  6. Revell Foose '48 Cadillac de-Foosed

    Done.
  7. 1948 Cadillac

    Thanks! That's what usually gets me in trouble with the wife. Thank you.

    I'm finally calling this one done (for the most part). Revell's Foose Eldorod with modified hood, AMT '51 Bel Air roof and trunk lid, grill and wheels from a '53 Caddy diecast, Revell STS engine cover over an LS1, Olsen Brothers' resin skirts, painted with Testors Gloss Purple under Tamiya Pearl Clear. At some point I'll revisit the hood to make it fit the grill better and get the fender skirts to sit properly, but despite its flaws, overall I'm happy with it. Thanks for all the kind words and encouragement during the WIP and let me know what you think.
  10. A club member received this email recently so I thought I'd pass it on: I'm Jim Rogers, half of a new injection molded plastic model kit company Salvinos J R Models and we are releasing our first kit soon. Buddy Baker's 1980 Oldsmobile 442 in 1/25th scale. We are currently signing dealers as well as taking retail pre-orders for our kit and it occurred to us that we should introduce ourselves to IPMS clubs like CPM. We are not trying to sell to the clubs directly, we are just hoping that the clubs could share the attached flyer with their NASCAR builder members who then can ask their favorite local shop to carry it. The 128 piece kit will be produced in Southern California, and include Cartograf decals and you can see what our sample looks like on the attached flyer. We would greatly appreciate any help we can get from clubs to make this a success allowing us to make more and other kits. Thank you for your time, Jim Rogers

    Very nice rebuild. What did you use to make the vinyl roof?
  12. 2019 Silverado

    I'm not liking this along with some of Chevy's other designs like the Equinox. Too many pointless creases along the body. Certainly not for aerodynamics. Same for the Malibu and to some extent, the Impala. They're just looking more and more like appliances.
