  1. 64 Pontiac My first build finished

    Hi Matt, congrats on your 1st plastic model build. Man, a '64 GTO brings back memories. If you don't mind, what really distracts me is the closeup pics showing a shiny flake, like on the interior shots and along the dash and door frame. Granted, this is a small scale, but this can still be dealt with. Really good is the idea of a well done opening door, showing an interior just as I remember. The Pontiacs were a nice ride and had great quality interior enhancements....even better when they had a potent motor. They ran very well. Great model, well done. Michael
  2. Swamp Rat XXX fuel routing

    The man; Later on he admitted to also have one fuel line to each cylinder, attached to the heads directly to the intakes, which meant these were unseen and running under the blower manifold and out of sight. Not illegal, just being tricky so the others didn't immediately catch on to his success.

    Hi John, I ran across the same questions not long ago. Lots of pics available when you do a search, like " Garlits' top fuel motor". Here is one I snatched, my old PC went south, so I can't say where the pics came from. Here a look at a 4 hole blower hat from the bottom, the black lines are fuel lines; Here a look from above; In other words, I can save you some time looking. Anything specific, I might just have a pic to clear any questions. Greetings, Michael

    John also, Garlits hid some of his fuel line secrets back in the day, being run under the blower manifold and such as he later told about. For a model, there are lots of closeups to be found on search sites. The fuel lines do get complicated and numerous. For example, if you don't mind, here an idea; You'll need super thin wire and patience. I truly believe, every scale fuel line you can build in, adds reality to your model. I hope you don't me posting my own pics, I'd just like to enhance perhaps some possibilities. Michael

    Excellent! Nice job Jason, great attention to details, and the paint looks fantastic.
  6. OMG!!! KFC ran out of chicken...and then GRAVY!!!

    Why anyone would freely eat this stuff, and spend own cash for it, is beyond my comprehension.

    Well done Ludwig.

    Love it, a '40 Ford in other clothes. Great job.
  9. '69 Monogram Super Bee

    Lots of really great builders here on our forum. Just simply amazing. Over the years though, cruz crafts one amazing model after the other. Can we say "CruzCraft"? Marcos, a real master and shows his deeds and perfection time after time. Just the way things should be, and what most of strive for, perfection. Always a thrill to see your models, many greetings, and many thanks for your efforts in presenting these goodies. Michael

    Great job Lee, love it that you went outside the norm and built another version of a hotrod. I also like the clean and well lit presentation, with just a touch of shine on the lug nuts....I like. Michael

    Hi Steve, thanks for the insight. Gold is one of my favorite paint schemes and you've done amazingly well. I love the quality paintjob you've shown us. Plus, if you don't mind, the pic quality is also very nice. Man...shadows from the car on the pavement...gotta love it! Greetings, Michael
  12. Drag Question about funny car tin work ?

    I can only agree, the best tin work on models is from real aluminum, easy to handle. These two are the best.
  13. What Pleased You Today!

    Just wonderful. In the wee hours, letting the dogs from the leash (law here) to run and sniff freely through the woods behind my house and to enjoy myself, the freedom of having time to enjoy. Great.

    Wow, I'll just bet this model will have great decals.

    Chuck, if that's not a sled then I dare someone to offer different. That car just slides over roads. Love it.
