  1. Nice Rover. I'd like to find one too, but the asking price is always too much. I never saw one without the top on and it gives it a different look. I didn't realize the seats sat facing each other. You did a great job on your Rover. Thanks for sharing. Jeff
  2. That's what I was thinking. I remember doing that to a Corvette kit when I was a kid and it looked just as ugly as that thing. Thankfully, the Corvette was destroyed. Jeff
  3. Great! Now I'll be able to model my uncle's Jimmy to go along with my dad's Blazer. Can't wait. Jeff
  4. Cool! If the price isn't too bad, I'll try to pick one up if I can find it. Always need more old Jeeps. Thanks. Jeff
  5. Nice job. I gotta get started on mine. I want to have it done in time for the series finale this fall. The paint and trim work look great. Jeff
  6. Hey, I have one of those. Bought it several years ago at a club meet thinking I was going to use it for a slotcat body. It seemed like a good candidate as it was light and didn't have a lot of extra stuff on it. Now, I'm kinda out of racing and not sure what I was going to do with it. I think you inspired me to build it now as your's turned out very well. You made it look like it's a lot more than it actually is. Good job. Jeff
  7. Call or write to Jegs or Summit. Both are performance automotive parts sellers with huge lines of auto performance parts catalogs. They hand out stickers at the drag races like they were going out of style. I'll bet if you contacted them and told them your story, they'd probably reach out to all of their suppliers and get you all kinds of stickers. Good luck, looks like a worthy project. Jeff
  8. Great looking pair. Thanks for posting again. I see details on the pickup that I missed the last time I saw it. Great story on the van. Looks like a nice tribute. Jeff
  9. Great looking truck. The name sake on your truck used to have a law office on the model train club layout I used to belong to. Got a lot of compliments, lol. Really like the color combination. Good job. Jeff
  10. Thanks for the kind comments. 89AKurt, yes that is the kit grill and headlights. I found out that the sanding drum in my rotary tool kit fit the back of the grill section, and I used that to sand down the backside of the grill carefully till the holes were opened up. I guess I could scratch build the fluid tanks, just hoping to find them already made to save myself some time. Jeff
  11. I finally finished this one. I still need to find a proper overflow reservoir and washer tank for in the engine bay, but with all the good model shows and swap meets shut down, that may take awhile. I started off with a scratch built suspension lift and bigger tires and wheels. I used the tires from the Lindberg 1/20 scale Baywatch Toyota that I bought from a friend at a swap meet. I didn't like the wheels that came with it so I found that the Revell top fuel rear wheels just about fit the tire openings. They have beadlock rims on and had the look I wanted. I used silicone to glue the wheels to the tires and help fill in the slight gap between the two. I wasn't happy with the rollcage that came with the monster truck version of the kit, so I ended up scratch building that too.(sorry, forgot to mention that I used the crew chief version for this build) I tried something new and ground/sanded the grill down to get the see through look. It was tedious and nerve racking, but I'm happy with the results. I used the Testors lacquer spray can in the Inca gold for the body and interior. I really like using that brand and hope they keep making it and adding to the color chart. I used some photo etched parts for the interior for the first time too and like the added dimension they bring to the interior. Scratch made the gas, brake, clutch, and parking break petals also. Parts box front and rear bumpers and a winch add to the build, along with all the doodads and geegaws inside to make it more personalized. Thanks for looking and all comments welcome. Jeff
  12. Sure, this thing's been under SALT water for seventy-plus years and looks like it could be rinsed off and fired right up, but my Scout II rusted to pieces in just 10 years. Looks like International got cheap with the metal over the years, lol. Cool pics, may she rest in piece. Jeff
  13. The pic of Wild Willie Borsch is one of my all time favorite drag photos. Those "Awful Awful" Fuel Altered drivers sure had a pair to be driving what was essentially a top fuel car with 1/3 the wheelbase. What a ride! Jeff
  14. Cool Bronco. The two blues look good together. Jeff
  15. Great looking Jeep. I'm glad Revell brought out the stock version of this kit. I can more closely build my daily driver than I can with the modified kit. I like the weathering you added underneath, it really brings out the details. Jeff
