      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    I found them. The original one is in white plastic but was painted blue and had the custom nose glued on with tube glue. I think you can still see how the area around the headlight was more correct than it is now (the one in primer).

    Let me see if I can remember to get some pics. It would be easy to add the headlights of your choice with the original front. I still have found no reason for why they did that.

    If you can find an original annual kit, the part around the headlights look a lot better. I have one I am trying to figure out how to graft onto another body I have. I am not sure why they flattened the part around the headlight or when, but I have an issue from the 80's that the modification was already made on. I can try to take a pic later tonight if you would like to see it.

    I also don't like telling people what direction to take. Do what you want. I would like to suggest don't be afraid to paint even some of the wheel.

    I don't remember having any big issues with that kit. I think I remember having to move parts to get it to sit all the way down.

    I am actually doing the same thing. Keep up the good work.

    Well, I haven't seen these before. They look great.

    Off to another great start. I love the lights.

    Very nice. That is big!

    Great job so far! I like this style and have plans to build my own. You should see my take on this theme, along with a couple others, coming soon. I am interested to see yours progress. I started with the crappy pink one, so anything will be an improvement.

    I would say keep the door lines going all the way to the bottom, and if you are going suicide, try looking at the older versions that have the side vents. I think having both of those opening the same will look good.

    Keep us posted,

    Looks great. Like the color combo. The only suggestion I have is it looks like you have a left and right side wheel on the same side. They are directional wheels so the spokes should point the same way. Everything looks good. You may try to mount the stock tail lights under the car, on the frame rails. Just a thought.

    I had fun making this one. I forced some perspective by putting a 1/43 scale Mustang right behind the main ones.

    Here is the old Testors kit.

    Very nice. I like drawing on toned paper.

    Try Revell's 50 Ford F-1 Pickup 2'n1 kit. Not exact match but closer than what you have or Pegasus'.

    Wow! This is looking great! I like those tires. Did you make wide and wider ones, or all the same?
