  1. Could it pass?

    It might pass as a Ford in some circles.....but certainly not in This One!
  2. Senior citizen

    Welcome back to the workbench brother builder where even a little time invested in the project is time well spent.
  3. Superbike Weekend, Canada

    OK Howard......what's the thing on the bike in the lead photo?
  4. Nixdorf Classic Car Museum

    Thanks for posting the additional info. I first became aware of the Canadian Ford's during my high school years('50's) when I saw the mid decade ones with those cool swoopy V shaped center grille bars.
  5. Cool pix of an unusual truck. Thanks for sharing.
  6. Nixdorf Classic Car Museum

    I have a question about the gray " Ford-ish" convertible with the tan top and a Mercury looking grille. Was that a Canadian built Meteor ?
  7. Fantastic photo coverage my man. You were the proverbial Kid in a candy store with a camera. Your choice of detail shots is amazing showing us details we are never likely to ever have a chance to see in person. Thanks for sharing your talent with us !
  8. Where did that tree of really neat head light lenses come from?
  9. 34 ford rescue

    I absolutely love this build! Radically unique design and execution abound. Great color choice really works well and that engine is a real head scratcher that commands a lot more scrutiny at some point. Thanks for sharing.
  10. Fleetwood Country Cruize

    Thanks for posting the great photos of this event. There a few vehicles I don't recognize. The was a red sports roadster with a license plate "the flame", also a two tone '40's four door sedan in tan. What were those?
  11. Pics from Simpsonville SC show

    Only one image is displayed here. The rest are not available.
  12. Looking very promising.
  13. Where do you find YOUR inspiration ?

    My inspiration comes from everywhere it seems. I love discovering images in magazines,on line,when we travel,at model shows,etc. Some many fantastic things have either been designed or built by amazingly talented people over the last century that I'll run out of time to build most of them before I run out of ideas. I have large bulletin board on the wall right beside my model workbench with the heading "Headbone Nationals" across the top of it. It's covered with sketches and pix of projects that inspire me to keep chipping away at the constant parade of cool stuff runs through my head.
  14. What Are You Building Today?

    I just finished scratch building a 1/25 scale 1937 Curtiss Aerocar 24 foot travel trailer and am now working on a tow vehicle for it. That will be a '37 International D300 cab over with a custom body. The IH is a beautiful resin piece offered years ago by the late Ray Parsons of R&R Vacuum Craft. The truck will have paint to match the trailer which is Krylon Burgundy over gloss black. The trailer has a roof covering similar to a vinyl top in black. The original Aerocars used a material called nitarite to cover the roofs on these high end fifth wheelers. That detail was duplicated on my trailer with a Rust-Oleum number 239119 multicolor textured. That duplicates the texture I needed. I painted over that with flat black then rubbed it with my fingers for a satin finish. You can see what the trailer looks like by Googling" Curtiss Aerocar" and see the tow vehicle by looking up "Tug Boat Annie tow truck". Great to hear you are back at your workbench Carl. There is definitely something positive about returning to our benches even for a little while.
