  1. That's one of the best looking pick-up's I've ever seen!
  2. American model companies are criminal, all of them, and have been for decades. In any other product line (shoes whatever,..) they would have been drummed out of business decades ago for making shoddy products. They have a captive customer base and know it, what can you do? Build Tamiya kits (are they better?) if you have the money I guess.
  3. I think a livery would really make this car pop. Man, that's one honkin' hug engine! And looks nicely detailed, is that OOB?
  4. Wow, that is really awesome Jim! Beautiful job! The shot of it sitting outside really brings it to life. You have a great imagination for color schemes and such, that paint is truly beautiful, whole car is very nice.
  5. Wow, that's really nice Marty! How long did you spend on this? 'Cause from what I can see it looks flawless.
  6. Man, when I saw that pic (the one that started the thread) it just cracked me up.
  7. Nice job, love the colors you used. Looks like the spark plug wires are a little thick.
  8. I'm in the 'same' boat Rich. I keep saying I'm switching oars, but , I do the same thing on the next kit.
  9. I have some guitar strings! Thanks to everyone, I have gleaned much and will go back through this thread when I have more time. I've been using .025 plastic rod to make my pins, I also have some metal rod. What kind of file or whatever can be used to smooth the metal rod after it's been cut? My files don't do very at that. Thanks! Enjoyed reading posts.
  10. Still looks good man, whatever that kit is the body looks accurate.
  11. Hello all, I've pinned a few things, headers etc,.. but don't have a sure fire method for making the process accurate, (within reason). Until now I've just used the 'eye ball' method for placement and drilling of holes. Is there a better way? Thanks.
  12. Beautiful work Jim, you did good. You did the chrome?
