  1. Favorite kits

    70s MPC Dodge Pick-up. I like the 2WD long bed the best, but I've built short beds, 4WD, etc. I've got one with a trashed bed that is destined for a 2WD long bed Utiline with a 225, steelies, and monotone paint.
  2. Favorite Car

    If I had to pick one, it would be this: 1969 Polara Pursuit
  3. Headlight cover for Tamiya 300ZX

    Anybody got a spare headlight cover, part E8, for the Tamiya 300ZX, kit 24087? No wonder I got this kit cheap. It looks like somebody got the body painted (purple!) and quit after removing some parts from the tree. Let me know what you'd like in trade. Thanks
  4. Grand Superfly/Sweathogs Grand Prix

    How about this guy from "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka". You would need to source the platform shoes with the goldfish swimming in the heels.
  5. Revell 1957 Ford Del Rio

    I like the simple, clean look. Inspiration can come from anywhere.
  6. Gabriel/(ex Hubley)1909 Ford Sport Runabout

    I like the Mother-In-Law seat in the back. Nice looking build.
  7. Big Three engines by FTB

    I, for one, would like to see more pictures of the forklift. I have been accused of having a forklift fetish because of my 20 or so 1/25 lift trucks.
  8. whats the rarest model you own and did you build it?

    How about these guys. I have a stock Massey, resin 69 Coronet to build so these are not on the build schedule at this time. Sorry about the lousy phone pics.
  9. whats the rarest model you own and did you build it?

    I've got all those except the Pantera. My Mangusta is the stock version and I built the Urraco decades ago.
  10. What did you see on the road today?

    Went to the Wednesday night Cruise-In at the Gilmore Car Museum last night. I saw (among lots of others) an Edsel and a Morgan 3 wheeler.
  11. What did you see on the road today?

    No camera unfortunately, but I saw a nice black 1933 Ford at the Dig-In Cafe in Augusta, MI. I had a nice chat with the couple driving it.
  12. What kind of other nerd are you?

    I'll mention 2. First is my collection of diecast forklifts, every one I could find (except one Toyota that the owner didn't want to sell) in 1/25 scale. The other is Amateur Radio. I am an Extra class callsign W8JRD.
  13. Which Cord Kit?

    I love that diner! Kit or scratchbuilt?
  14. Something funny for Monday morning.

    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
  15. How Old Are You

    57 right now. I don't feel that old mentally, but on cold mornings I feel 77 physically. I started building in the early 70s and still have many of those kits. Most qualify as glue bombs I think.
