  1. Thanks for the positive comments. As for the brass I just brushed on Model Master paint and clear coated with Tamiya spray
  2. This is my version on Monograms 29 Ford Ratrod kit. My son gave me the idea for the yellow wheels. I kinda like the contrasting look it gives the truck. Like I said before I build for pure enjoyment and have lots of fun doing it. Hope you like it. Ray
  3. This is a kit from ICM model company. It was kinda challenging for me because the body comes in four pieces and I had a lot of “fun” trying to get it square. I used Tamiya gloss black. I really wish the brass parts had come plated. Like I said on another post with a 66 Suburban I’m building for pure enjoyment for myself and having lots of fun with it. Since I restarted building again about seven years ago after I retired I have built too many models to even count lol. I think I’m getting a little better as I go along thanks to listening and learning from you guys on this site. Ray
  4. I’ve only posted here a couple of times but have been a member for some time now. I look at the site a couple of times a day (I’m old got nothing else to do ) lol. Decided it’s time to show some of my work. I started building again after retiring seven years ago. I’m not real good but boy do I enjoy it. We moved into a condo a couple of years ago and built myself a nifty shop dedicated to model building. I built this Suburban a couple of years ago I think it came out fairly descent . Hope you like it. Ray
  5. Has anyone heard of The Sales Shack?

    Just wanted to chime in on my experience with the Sales Shack. I noticed the discussion about them here on Wednesday so I gave them a look see. Found a AMT 56 Ford Victoria that I had been thinking about for awhile now. It was $14.99 minus the shipping. I used priority mail - grand total $23.49. Considerably cheaper than other online sites that also sell it. It was also factory sealed. I opened the box and everything was still in the plastic bags, decals stuck to the instruction sheet but they are crPpy decals anyway.It was shipped from somewhere near Seattle and I live in Michigan— got it today— not bad at all — two days to get here.I will definitely order from them again. Ray.

  7. Moebius replacement parts

    Hello everyone. I've been a member of this board for some time now but this is my first post. I just wanted to chime in on the Moeibus replacement parts program.I recently purchased the 65 Belevedere from them and had some issues with the fitment of the rear window. It seems as though the bottom of the window opening was warped not allowing the glass to fit properly. While trying to "massage" the body back into place I cracked the glass and the trunk deck "oops". I emailed them last week and promptly received an automated email stating they were shut down due to the hurricane. I didn't hear back from them so I thought I would call. A very nice lady answered (I forgot her name) and immediately apologized for not getting back to me. She explained they were still sorting thru emails that accumulated during the time they were closed. She said she would go climb over some pallets of models that had just arrived and find the parts I needed. She just called me back and the parts are on the way to me. The charge was $2.95. I'm not sure that even covers postage. This in my opinion this is superior customer service. I have built their Chrysler 300's , their Hudsons and now starting on the Mopars, all of which are Fantastic models. I mentioned to her that I was partial to late 40's and 50's cars and she hinted that some new stuff is in the works.-- that would be so Kool. So hats off to Moeibus with their superior model kits and their top notch customer service
