  1. These are such great kits, it's hard to screw them up. The build looks amazing. Good color choice.
  2. I don't normally like low riders, but I love this thing. I'd own a 1:1 version of this car if I could. Very tastefully done.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. As bad a kit as it may be; I'd still kill to have it. Nice work.
  6. 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.

  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Seriously, cool. Can't wait to build my B-58 that I picked up a couple months ago.
  11. Still looks cool. Wish I had your luck with finding cool models. I have to scour Ebay and hope for good prices.
  12. Turned mine into one the other day. Same colors too.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. I saw an Alfa 1300 kit at MegaHobby, but it's sold out. Maybe you could find one online. Kit looked pretty detailed.
  18. Looks good. Smart idea if you have a scrap body lying around.
