    Between 25 and 30 would be my guess. She was there taking a conceal carry class. 8 hours of training may not be enough for that young lass. Not sure if she passed the range portion of the test...there were not many holes in her target. Which means she could not hit human silhouette target at 21 feet.

    Ferrari 750 Monza
    This black little beauty is a 1/43 scale BBR Ferrari 750 Monza that raced in the 1954 Carrera Panamericana, driven by Alfonso de Portago. BBR makes some very nice 43rd scale subjects and they are well engineered. Straight black lacquer as smooth as a babies bottom. I build a couple of Carrera Panamericana subjects for my brother as Christmas presents every year. He's amassing a nice themed collection.

    1953 Lincoln Cadillac
    This is a 1/43 scale Provence Moulage kit of the 1953 Lincoln Cadillac that raced in the Carrera Panamerica road race. It is probably the most bizarre car I have ever built.  The canopy of the car was a from airplane, I think a T6 Texan. The car was raced by Jose Ham Gunam and failed to finish. Dupont Cadillac Firemist red shot through the Paasche and lots of bare metal foil. Weird!

    I've tried cleaning the sensor as well. WIth my Giotto air puffer it helps but not completel, Photoshop spot healing brush takes care of the rest.

    Using my vacation time to finish some projects and work on some basic photography and photoshop enhancing to present better photos in the forum. This was shot using a Canon 30D and a 100mm macro lens. Then created a couple of layers in photoshop to clean up the background, as it seems impossible to clean a lens and not see see some specs of dust when shooting with a 32 aperture.

    March 707 Can Am
    Just finished this Marsh Models 1/43 scale March 707 that Chris Amon drove at Donnybrook in 1970. Marsh Models are a pleasure to build, they are well thought out and go together well. Resin, photoeched and turned aluminum parts make up the kit and the decals a very crisp.

    Cleaning up parts and filling up some pinholes. Mock up to make sure everything is fitting correctly before primer coat.

    I think he only sells via ebay. I purchased mine as a preorder for $119. Once the kit was completed shipping was with in a week. I'm definitely getting his Ferrari 375 Indy as well.

    1961 Cooper Climax
    I just received my FPPM kit and it is really nice. 52 parts make up the kit and the decals are clean and crisp. I have always been intrigued by this car and the revolution it started. Interesting to note is FPPM molded the brass suspension pieces into the chassis once cleaned up it will make for a very solid suspension. 
    After winning their second Formula One World Championship in October 1960, encouraged by Roger Ward, John Cooper and Jack Brabham tested a T53 "Low Line" F1 car at the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The results were encouraging enough for wealthy enthusiast Jim Kimberly to sponsor a specially built car for the 1961 race. Designed and constructed in less than 4 months, the new car appeared at the Brickyard May 5, 1961, and was quickly put into its paces. After a few modifications, Jack Brabham qualified the new car in 13th spot, only 2mph slower than pole position. After an eventful race in which Brabham was forced to make 3 long pit stops due to excessive tire wear from its inadequate Dunlops, he completed the 200 laps in 9th place, causing many to rethink their long-established beliefs about what a proper Indy car should be. 
    It would take three more years for the "Rear Engine Revolution" to be complete, but the sole Cooper T54 was the death knell of the traditional front-engine, rigid-axle cars that had ruled the Indy 500 since the early 1920s.
    Stay tuned in for the ensuing WIP.
