    I still want to build a '78 bronco since the originals are scarce and ridiculous. I'll be chopping up a superstones it looks like

    I need to thank James Maynard again for some charger parts! good dude!
  5. JTalmage added a post in a topic What's your next model purchase?   

    I have reached my maximum capacity on kit storage. So no more for me for quite a while. Although if I did get another kit, it would be a 2nd 29 roadster, or the 80 ford f150

    The round cylinder w/ the round base is the trophy base. Some old AMT kits were "trophy kits" and they came w/ a chrome car show trophy you could glue on to that base. Thats all I got though.

    No kidding. I checked out bing maps birds eye view and you can see plain as day the old town of St. Thomas. And many of the foundations of houses, intersections and cross streets of the town still... after all those years! Some of the street paths go almost all the way across and up and down Lake Mead!

    Whats the back look like? I know there's several variations out there on the way they mount. I know I have some just a matter of what the backside looks like.

    Yep. Use ACME's maker, and then print them on glossy photo paper and cut out w/ a small pair of scissors. Make sure you dump the image into a word doc or mspaint and resize to .5 long and .25 tall. Works like a charm

  11. JTalmage added a post in a topic What do you do when they ask?   

    I don't have a problem building kits for people. I enjoy it. But if they want crazy custom work, or some sort of period piece I'll tell em how it is as far as materials price. Especially if I have to get the paint custom mixed. My local body shop supply house can mix paint and put it in a rattle can for me so I've done that before. 
    I have a guy wanting me to build a '57 Chevy Nomad in the style of Dean Jefferies or George Barris... I said man I'm not that good with plastic and customizing but I'll give it a go. I havent charged him anything yet in case I screw it up, but for folks wanting a simple paint job and nice wheels, I'll ask for money up front for supplies. Typically I'll barter the labor in building... if you can call it labor. I turn the TV on and build. But in most cases, I tell people don't be in a hurry for them though. If they rush me, I am not inclined to build it. 
    I think you oughta build him his chevelle. He cared a lot for the car and wants something to remember it by, and feels that you're an expert enough to finally let him have his chevelle with nice paint he always wanted.

    Thank you. I really love this model. I think I want to find another and paint it ice white now.

    I met the guys from Roadkill!!
    I meant to post this story about a week ago but forgot... 
    So on August 16th I was at an antique machinery show checking out some old tractors and stuff, and I felt like that morning it was going to be a good day. I put on my NMRA World Finals @ Beech Bend raceway shirt and headed over to the show. While at the show I was wandering thru the flea market they had set up, and a guy had some old models for sale. So I picked up an old '54 Chevy "Hot Rod" edition for $20. 
    After the show I went home and I intended to weld the cowl on to my '88 Mustang project. I was sitting around winding down from the day at the show out in the hot weather when a friend of mine posted on my facebook that the guys from Roadkill were on their way down to Bowling Green, KY to Beech Bend Raceway (I ironically had that shirt on) and that they were passing thru Cincinnati on the way from the Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit! They were to arrive in about an hour and a half, so I jumped up and hopped in my truck and ran over to Springdale where they were making a pit stop! There was already a welcome committee there waiting! Then..... They pulled in...
    Driving their new Dodge Charger Hellcat dubbed "General Maintenance". This was the Charger they drove in the episode where they thrashed the Charger, Challenger, and Viper on the motocross track!

    Here's David Freiburger, after he ran inside to eat some tacos, talking to the crowd thanking them for showing up and he started passing out stickers and signing autographs

    And here's Mike Finnegan signing autographs and talking to people as well

    So I snapped some pics with the guys, they were super cool and very nice and total car guys. Very willing and happy to talk to anyone and everyone

    Mike loves v8 jet boats... and so he gravitated towards the owner of this thing

    The owner of the burrito restaurant that invited them down also had a beautiful Lark wagon and so they hopped in it for a picture with him

    Then they had to get going so they hopped back in their Hellcat and said their goodbyes and thank yous, and took off!

    So during the meet and greet I remembered I had that model car I bought at the tractor show earlier, and I grabbed it from my truck and they were gracious enough to autograph the box for me. David even said "wow, I remember when they first started making these things!"

    And of course, I had to come away with some merch too!
