    another MASTERPIECE. engine looks real,wheels are great in black and the shade of yellow on the body is superb. I have this one in parts and the wheels are a pain- but nice when completed.

    very nice color-better than the usual red or yellow- good clean work

    I agree about the colors ''camp'' nice photography as well

    hey Jeff- the lindberg has lots of potential and a good kit to get you started. I say go for it and try your hand at scratchbuilding just a few small details. the rest will come as you build it. a lot of it is in the paint job - it does not have to be perfect but detail painting the small hardware makes all the difference. and most important of course is to have fun with the project.
    I believe the Stutz factory cars were white- do a little research on line and you will be able to see some details that you can add to your car GOOD LUCK

    absolutely superb weathering on that engine and ancillaries-looks real-the way I would build it. I saw the muffler a while back and it is very convincing!
    there was a Rolls of this vintage at a car show I saw on Fathers day.

    the engine seam work and added details will be worth it-already looks great!
    very refreshing to see the wheels painted and blackwalls -whitewalls pull your eye on to them and not the model.
    what paint did you use on the wheels? great color.

    Superb work on the engine and seats so far. the valve covers are just right-not too shiny! and nice work on the Ign. Wire boots

    I need a seat if you have extra ones.

    I thought it looked real at first glance-then I noticed the clutch cable-it would never have such a sharp curve.

    I believe that bulge is a cowl vent for the cockpit of this VERY HOT CAR

    very cleverly done-but its a model-the wheels and headlites give it away-and the 1/1 size tire print in the dirt--nice model though-is it 1/8? or possibly bigger- and could it be a 3D printed job?-- thats what it looks like to me

    beautiful stock build-thanks for not putting on white walls!
  14. f1ford48 added a post in a topic 1950 Oldsmobile "junker"   

    now thats what I call a ''rust bucket'' - great weathering. perfect candidate for ABE and FERGYS

    the wood panels have a perfect grain-and not too shiny- the windshield trim is the sharpest and true to scale I have seen. very nice work for an ''out of the box'' build.
