  1. This is awesome. When do we get to the point where we can take our scanner out to the carshow, scan our favorite car, and print it off? I see this is really the future of model building, or at least a viable part of it!
  2. When I saw this video it made me think of repairing plastic bumpers using a plastic welder. I remember buying that hot knife from Autoworld and being disappointed with it. However after seeing this i had a woodburning set so i dug it out and tryed it on a junk body. It worked okay but a temperature control would help, I think mine was a little hot. However i could see it working well with a little practice .
  3. I think that was by Dale King. He built beautiful models but some of the info in that book was not what we would do today.
  4. The Drivers Ed car at my high school was a an '81 Chevy Citation( donated by a local dealer and fittede with a passenger side brake pedal). That got me my license.Dad then taught me to drive stick on a Volkswagen Bus , then later taught me to drive fast on a fiat 124 .
  5. I forgot to take the engine pictures.! And I did put some cargo in the back . I will probably add a few more items.
  6. Thank you! There is an Instagram account for old Hudsons it was really helpful!
  7. I I finally finished one! I used a Jimmy Flinstone resin conversion for the Moebius 53 Hudson . Phantom Speed and Marine is a mythical speed shop I came up with for a future diorama. I will be adding more vehicles to the fleet, and they will all be "phantoms". A little backstory on the name, my brother rented a the end of a building from a garage called Canton Car Care, and the owner used to fool around answering the phone "Phantom Car Care, division of Midnight Auto, open twenty four hours , but not in a row!"
  8. I saw this ad today. is it me or is that a little pricey for a kit at walmart?
  9. Wow that was a new one on me! I could only remember the Olds Cutlass Calais.
  10. Why does this remind of me of a Minion turned Transformer?
  11. A lot of times I want to build a model as a styling exercise, and there's no need for a drive train, but I cant bring myself to build a model without it! But that is the fun of modelling, you can build something in styrene or resin that would be impractical or impossible to build in 1:1 . If it doesn't work into the parts bin it goes!
  12. I Found this in a 1959 Mechanix Illustrated. It is a nice reminder that there have been talented builders around for a long time! Has anybody heard of this man or have any knowledge of the models he built?
  13. then there was the guy who hired the ( not so smart person) to paint his porsh, and she came back and told him it was done, but it wasn't a "porsh". it was a BMW....... pronunciation is everything!
