  1. Cliff, it certainly is a surprise to see you working on a styrene kit again, although you've given this one your usual high level of detail. I never noticed the issue with the wheels before, but I have read lot of posts dealing with the front bumper and wheel opening problem with this kit. You've solved it in a relatively simple and effective way. The flecked carpet detail is a very nice touch as well. Thanks for sharing all the build up photos! Eric
  2. AMT 62 Galaxie restoration

    These are rarely ever seen. You did a super job bringing it back from the brink....
  3. 1958 Plymouth Custom Suburban wagon

    I'm always drawn to unusual subjects like this. The color is not what I'm used to seeing, which greatly adds to the authenticity. Also, it's beautifully done.
  4. 69 Camaro RS SS396

    Well, you SHOULD be happy. It's beautiful!
  5. My only 2 for the year.

    Great work Gene. You got two done which is more than I did! You did some fine work on the Cougar. That's an interesting idea, and I really love the color also. Eric
  6. My 3 from 2018

    I agree with everyone Curt, you did a great job on some not often seen cars. The firebird is my favorite, I love the wheels and tires. Eric

    A white WC-22 or an early 4000 Series Mustang in 1/25 scale.
  8. '57 Pontiac stock Sedan Delivery

    It's a real novelty seeing a model of a '57 Pontiac, but since it's a sedan delivery - that puts it over the top. Awesome craftsmanship as usual Cliff. This is model car alchemy. I like the colour choice, and those hood hinges really stopped me in my tracks. As a canuck I certainly appreciate the Canadian side of this model. Thanks for the information!! Eric

  10. 1/25 AMT '71 Plymouth Duster 340

    I didn't find it to be a difficult change to make. I removed the drip moulding and filed and sanded the window to what I hope is a more accurate shape. Then I glued styrene strip to the sides to recreate the drip moulding. Then again, this car was important enough to me to go through this exercise!
  11. 1957 Chrysler 300C

    Super nice job. It does look superb in white.
  12. AMT Vintage Racers

    Great job Howard. Nice to see these classics see the light of day. The Lola is my favorite! Eric
  13. 1930 Model A coupe in white

    Great job! They don't come much cooler than this. Very tastefully and cleanly built. The stance is just right. I also love the Clay Smith decal!
  14. Thanks for the info on the tail/backup lights Cliff. I find that kind of information interesting, and helpful. The model looks terrific. I'm totally impressed with how correct the roof looks. Even the paint finish in the trunk looks spot on. Overall this is a very fine tribute to your real Chevy.
  15. 61 Plymouth Fury

    Beautifully done Mike. Excellent colour choice. I have one that was built up many, many years ago that I got from a neighbour. It's not as clean as yours was, but it should still be a relatively easy restoration. Your fine paint work and foiling will be an inspiration when I re-do mine.
