  1. That is nice. I live in the NC area, when is the meet? It would be nice to go sometime. I may have to start looking around at some of the shows and meets around here.
  2. I was gifted the kit last Christmas. I share your frustration with the kit. I'd like to have seen a better hood, engine, better side scallops, and some side mirrors. Hart's parts does make a nice resin hood for the car though. SAM_0448 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  3. As bad a kit as it may be; I'd still kill to have it. Nice work.
  4. I did one not long ago. Hart's Parts makes a good conversion from AMT kits. My grill got damaged, but it still looks good. The decals I think were Phoenix, but I can't remember. Over all the car came out good, but the tail lights will always be off. The tail of a 71 is just too different from a 70 to do a good conversion.

  5. I got a couple. I found them to be pretty good quality. Most of their stuff across the line was pretty accurate and highly detailed.
  6. Might be. But, it wasn't Burgundy; it was straight up chocolate. If I didn't have it packed up from moving I'd take a picture, honestly, it looks black in pictures. The paint looked good on it though. Only issue was the door fit and one of the dagmars on the bumper was damaged. I was shocked I got it for $20. Most were $100 or more.
  7. I got the 1/24 version the other day for $20. It's a chocolate color. Not bad, but the door fit was atrocious. Forgot the maker, or if it was even mentioned.
  8. Seriously, cool. Can't wait to build my B-58 that I picked up a couple months ago.
  9. Still looks cool. Wish I had your luck with finding cool models. I have to scour Ebay and hope for good prices.
  10. Turned mine into one the other day. Same colors too.
  11. First model I ever built in 2005: 1 (109) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr The last model I built: SAM_0613 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  12. The Lindburg kit wasn't too bad, but I always like to build my cars stock and the kit isn't stock. I was lucky enough to find a stock hood at Hart's Parts. Then, I found some decals from Fire-bird designs. The model didn't come out looking too bad : SAM_0448 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr It's all in how you choose to build it.
  13. No, I found the tail lights a little tricky too. My main problem though, was the hood fit. Mine was just a hair too wide and had to be trimmed. I got a second kit so i could try to build a Mach 1 from it next year.
  14. Proportions seem a little off. Especially the grill. I'd like another Camaro since the ones I have in my collection now were from when I first started building and they didn't come out so well. I think I'd just try to find an old Revell kit though.
  15. I saw an Alfa 1300 kit at MegaHobby, but it's sold out. Maybe you could find one online. Kit looked pretty detailed.
  16. Looks good. Smart idea if you have a scrap body lying around.
  17. Some cool stuff for once............and I'm trying to save money for a house. 😐
  18. Been meaning to post this model for some time. Finished it months ago, but I have been having some issues in my personal life. So, with that being said my post may be sporadic for the next few months. I'll be posting some of my photos that were lost from Photobucket, but I will not be building any new models for the next 6 months at least. While I have a place to stay as long as I want; I have angered my land lord's son in law who has decided to harass me after I reported him to my land lord for trying to scam me. So, I have decided to purchase a home, but have run into some issues on that front as well. I'm hoping to be in a home early next year, but I do not want to build anything new as it is already going to be a stressful move due to my collection already. With well over 200 models I am really worried about stuff being broken. It's been causing a lot of stress on me in what has already been a very rough year. I've had a falling out with a best friend, literally a week later another good friend O.D.ed, I've had changes at work, and a couple other things. I've been pretty blah, and just keep forgetting to upload the pics. So, here's what could be my last model of the year.
