  1. I wish someone would make decals for the 427 badge and the cobra emblems. Here's the next one maybe. It's a Mini Exotics Super Cobra. I've not done a resin before and I'm not susre I'm ready for this
  2. I'll get some better shots later
  3. Picked this one on Ebay for cheap. It had some awful gray-green paint that was tough to remove. This one will not have sidepipes. Thanks AFX and Cobraman for their help. It's yellow!
  4. Looks good. I have a small 15-20 diecast forklift collection. The only suggestion I might have is that most forklifts have the rear end beat to death.
  5. I saw somebody was doing resin side mirrors for 70s GM products. Google has not been my friend, I can't locate the thread. One of the mirrors on my 70 Trans Am has been eaten by the carpet monster, and I really dont want to buy another kit just to get this one piece.

  7. The "distributor" is just a short piece of tubing with the wires glued into it. The other end is just stuck in holes drilled into the block. The wire itself is some left over from experimenting on electronic projects.
  8. It's in Under Glass now. Here's a pic
  9. Here in all its glue smeared glory. I did reattach the wing glass after these pics.
  10. Friend Terry's Trans Am out in the snow
  11. A few pics bore the body goes on. My friend Terry owned one in the 70s, fortunately without the pinstripes. This is as close as I could get to his from pictures. In under glass now.
  12. Here's me in front of the 1225 which is the model for the engine in Polar Express.
  13. While waiting for decals to complete a project that was supposed to be done today (thanks USPS) I started this one. First pics are engine in chassis
  14. Thanks to all who joined in this discussion. Civil and enlightening. Those 8 lugs are looking really good, now to find what I might have on hand. I have several Pontiacs of early 60s vintage that might have them. This will be a 2021 project, I have a 77 Trans Am to finish for a Christmas present for a friend.
  15. I would like to leave it stock looking. I don't have the Trumpeter kit, but I have a couple that have the 8 lug wheels. Thanks for the suggestions.
  16. Looking for suggestions on wheels for this, no donks please
  17. Mongo is a female. She just looked more like a Mongo than Marvela which is the name they gave her at the shelter. MY girlfriend, her Mom and myself all got torties at the same shelter on the same day. If I ever find the guy who kicked Mongo so hard she needed surgery, I would do the same to him. I really don't like animal abusers. Model related, Mongo likes to steal tires.
