  1. 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.
  2. 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...
  3. 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.
  4. Your paint job does look really good on this one Dan, and I don't see what you've accomplished as cheating. You happen to have a particular skill that just happens to come in handy for model building!
  5. 65 Plymouth Satellite (Moebius)

    That's a very tidy build. I really, really like the color choice and your detailing on the engine and interior is exceptional!
  6. Flathead

    This is very exciting. While we don't all have access to 3D printing at the moment, I can see the future of car modelling, and it looks very bright!
  7. 1974 Plymouth GTX

    Really nicely done! You certainly ironed out all the 'wrinkles' in this kit.
  8. My only 3 for the year.

    Very nice work Gene. These are all dream machines, but the Chevelle is my favorite. Happy New Year!
  9. My Pathetic 2017 Class.

    Well, Steven, it's frustrating when 'life' gets in the way of your passion, but like everyone has been saying, you did a beautiful job on this Pontiac. Your black paint job is a knockout!
  10. That's pure magic Steven. That dash is like jewelry. I was wondering what you use to mask your seats when you do a multicolored treatment? Eric
  11. MPC 1970 Coronet Super Bee 440 - Go Mango

    A beautiful job Randy. I love the colour. Is that enamel? I'm in the middle of this kit myself. Mine's purple.
  12. AMT 1960 Mercury Comet Restoration Complete

    That's awesome. You did a great job giving it an authentic original look. It's true, everything looks very much in scale.
  13. 1940 Ford Standard Business Coupe.

    A beautiful job. I have paint envy. My black paint would never look this good. It doesn't look like you even had to polish it. Would you consider giving a brief description of your paint method?
  14. It looks fantastic Cliff. I'm amazed that you were able to seamlessly graft the body parts from two unrelated diecast models. Superb attention to detail as well. I think the majority of these end up as customs or street rods, so it's really nice to see a stock one for a change.
  15. '50 Olds

    Very nicely done., and your paint work is first rate.
