  1. Moebius 4x4 Ford

    nice. I really like the weathering on the bed floor
  2. Our Michael's is a joke

    though sometimes they have 50% off coupons which are good on the few models they have. But I did notice today that they have not restocked any Testors paints. the racks were almost empty. too bad. I dont live close to any hobby shops

  6. March 2018 Car Craft model car article

    My brother used to build "white" models like that. the only good thing is when i inherited them I didnt have to strip any paint off them!

  8. Air Trax

    Just got the BMW 2002 I ordered from NNl East . Thank you and it is a very nice product. pretty good service coming all the way from Finland.
  9. I just grabbed those wheels from revells jeep . they were the first i could grab. I definitely like the wheel flares and a lift. But I will definitely be trying different wheelsets on this one. These vehicles look great bone stock or with mild to wild lifts, I have even seen one smoothed and lowered! I think I have some old Satco desert dogs or super swampers that might look better.
  10. You mean like this?! These look so good and there are so many variations to build.
  11. I just got my new Revell Bronco. Way sooner than I expected. Couldnt help but throw some wheels under it .
  12. What a great cup of coffee

    I swear the coffee tastes better out of this cup!
  13. 1969 GTO freshen up

    I decided to freshen this one up. A little history is in order though. My older brother built this circa 1970 . He ultimately gave me all his built models. This was metallic green and built as the "drag " version. I remember a nose high stance and skinny tires up front , and a parachute glued to the rear bumper. I repainted it several times. Many coats of shiny Testors spray paint. Many many coats! Finally in 1994 or so I had learned a little more and had an airbrush, so I stripped it down to bare plastic and repaired the broken windshield frame. I rebuilt it using the chassis from a hurst olds kit. I used some Tamiya wheels and tires. I was aiming for a pro Touring look. There were a few flawsthough. so after 23 years Gave it a little freshening up. New wheels and tires basically and a little more poishing.
