  1. Very nice, I like the color!
  2. I've built several of these kits over the years but never to this extent. That is a whole lot of detail in a very small space, well done!
  3. Looks like I will be working close to home in the near future, hope to get back at this one...
  4. Nice, cleanly built Comet you have there.
  5. I remember that one, nicely done!
  6. Good lighting is important when doing BMF, but I like to use non direct lighting so there is no glare. I also paint the top edge of my knife blade a color that stands out from the body paint, like for this black car I would use red at the tip of the blade.
  7. Fitment! Cleaning things up little by little. The other fender assembly was cracked so I started another. Flush skirts are glued in place and I’m scribing in the connection point for definition. I’m somewhat surprised at pulling off this chop.
  8. Mom's 71 Chevelle Greenbrier Wagon and Dad's 68 Chevy Panel Truck
  9. Yep, a friend made memorial stickers for me after Cody passed. Family and friends fly them in his honor. Thanks for noticing!
  10. Thanks Carl, if you mean the Stanley, that's been with me for some time now, traveling from the north coast to the south coast. The thermos is scratched dented and full of sticker. I use it every work day and also on trips as we travel. I do hope your doing well, friend...
  11. Working out of town limits bench time. But here’s a little update.
  12. Working out the rear window and Drag City’s hood needs no adjustment!
  13. I thought about that and then the new seam would have had two widths to blend. Since the curved cuts follow the sides of the trunk lid, I waited until I was happy with the fit. And then cut the bottom of the trunk lid and narrowed the sides to fit. Also I scored the top back side of the lid and bent it some. I think I hurt my brain thinking about this chop, before ever making a cut! Thanks...
  14. Thx, I do need to do something with the rear windows though.
  15. I like what your doing here. The 21" front wheel looks better, but a smaller tank, like a Sportster style might make things appear better. Exile Motorcycle built by Russel Mitchell.
  16. On the bench, 40 Ford Sedan glue bomb special, donated by Al's Junk Yard. About a 3 1/2" scale chop, flush fender skirts and a lot of body repair. Let's see where this leads...
  17. Yes Eric it certainly does! Good looking cars all around!
