  1. Born and raised in Guelph, Ontario. Went to school in Brampton, Ontario. I lived for a few years in Milton, just down the 401 from Guelph.
  2. 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!
  3. 1957 Chrysler 300C

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

    Great job Howard. Nice to see these classics see the light of day. The Lola is my favorite! Eric
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. A small investment in time yielded nice results Gene. A big improvement. Eric
  9. '55 Ford semi custom from a stock parts car

    Excellent job Cliff! It's an authentic traditional custom with your own original ideas incorporated. The colour is beautiful, also, it's nice to see a custom done from that period that doesn't have skirts over the rear wheels for a change.
  10. Exoto's 1/18 1954 D-Type Jaguar

    Just when you thought you'd seen everything. Absurdly detailed is right! Amazing.
  11. 1967 Pontiac Bonneville, More Mediocre Pics.

    Steve, your models are always a treat to see. It's especially great to see such a rare model done so well. Beautiful colour choice! Eric
  12. Lettering on tires

    I'm with you Tom. I use a piece of glass, then roll some flat acrylic paint onto it with a small foam roller. I drop the tire onto the paint, then gently press down on the tire. You can practice and keep trying to get the results you're happy with, just keep some water or isopropyl alcohol and a cloth handy to wipe the tire off. Then try again.
  13. Another inspirational build, Larry. I like the background story here. You were planning this one for quite some time, and now here it is. There's a ton of satisfaction that goes with 'crossing one off of your list'. Those hand made curved front doors must have been a lot of fun to do, along with all the other amazing working features that are always a part of your models. Overall a very authentic replica. No doubt all the reference gathering you did over the years really paid off. Thanks for posting it Cliff.
  14. Hawaiian Charger

    Done a million times yes, but not always this nicley. You did it justice sir! I have one in my stash waiting for me...
  15. 69 GTX Johan

    Nicely done GTX to be sure! One can clearly see the differences between this and the AMT offering. In defense of AMT, I will say while I like the Johan body more, I think that AMT has the superior chassis and drive train, as it should, considering how much newer the AMT kit is.
