         Thanks Tom,
       I'm sure you will find a way to raise
    the bar just a bit higher though.
        Or raise the roof, as it were in this
    case!
         My plan is to run some welting on
    the outside edge, and contrast paint
    the part when done.

       I'm starting to think that this the only way
    to build a 41 Plymouth!!
      I have had one for a while now, and had
    found no inspiration until now.
         Nice work Travis, still watching with
    full interest!!!
       
        Gas on my friend,

        Thanks Mark, and yes, sometimes it's
    almost weird the things you can find to
    work when needed!  
     
       I was pretty happy that the hood section
    when cut down and trimmed fit quite well.
        Some tweaking will be needed, but not
    too bad over-all!  But it matches the curve
    of the roof perfectly. Better once it's set in
    the roof just a bit better.

    on the dark side of da moon!

        Then I was making myself crazy trying
    to form a part from a Ala Kart kit to fit in
    the roof opening.
       But just tonight I discovered a most
    unlikely part that fit the curve of the
    roof perfectly-
     
        It's a hood from a 1988 Dodge
    Daytona!
       Here is some pics of what I
    was attempting to do with these
    parts I mentioned.
     
       Building happy again,

         I am very happy to say that I finally
    have some things nailed down for me
    to get going again on this build.
       My big stalls were the motor choice,
    and how to fill a couple big holes I
    made in the body.
       - The one hole was the trunk
    opening that I cut out.
       And I have a new deck lid for
    that problem.  ( Thanks Tom )
       - The motor choice going to
    be a regular old 409.
       - Then the other biggie was
    that I cut open the top and needed
    a removable insert piece for that.
        So first here is the motor-

        Kevin,
        Yes, it's 1/35th scale.  How accurate to scale
    it is, that I don't know.  But it looks right!

    Does anyone do Armor type trucks (Trade?)
          Hello,
        I have had this kit since I was a boy, and still
    have not built it.  So I have a feeling that I never
    will anymore at this point in life!
       It's open, but mint and complete. The option
    in this kit is to motorize it, and my guess is that
    the glue is dried up. LOL!!!
        I have no idea what to ask for in trade!
     
        Let me know what you think people,
            David S.

        I have used this product for a great many
    thing before, and I just love it!
       If you keep that little cap on, and store it
    plunger side down, it lasts quite well also.

        Have they found crop circles or anything of that
    nature near your home also?
       Because then maybe we are getting somewhere!
