  1. Great work on these Terry! Probably my favourite movie, so it’s really nice to see these done so well. These are Syd Mead designs I believe. (RIP Syd.) Built by Gene Winfield? That’s cool.
  2. Great design and execution on your Vicky! I love the stance and the colour. Those wheels are really cool too.
  3. You did a beautiful job on your Dodge! Very clean execution with great attention to detail and basic modelling techniques. Super paint job too! I'm very impressed by your use of Alclad for the chrome. It looks much more realistic than the kit chrome would have in my opinion. You've really inspired me to give it a try on my next model. When you're under the hood installing that master cylinder, maybe you could toss a battery in there too! (Sorry, I don't mean to be a wiseguy!)
  4. I’m looking for a set of these to help me restore an older built model. The kits are easy to find, but I’d rather not buy one just for the wheel covers if possible. I have a sizeable collection of kits. Mostly 1/24,1/25 classic cars. Maybe there’s something I could offer in return? Thanks!
  5. Beautifully built and photographed. Very cleanly done with great attention to detail. Could you tell me where you got the paint for it?
  6. What a cool old Ford! It looks terrific. I hope you and your family have a ton of fun with it. I sure would!!!
  7. Excellent work on your GTX! Your paint and foil work is superb. I really like the finishes you gave the interior as well, they’re very convincing. Great wheel and tire choice too. Those torque thrusts are ‘all business’!
  8. Rodney, I find this deuce incredibly cool! Stealthy even. You really know your way around hot rods. Everything about it looks ‘right’. I suppose the colour is on trend, and many won’t ‘get it’, but I can’t stop looking at it! Great job!
  9. I've known about these kits for some time but I can't recall seeing them built up before. These are all beautifully finished and assembled. The Jag and the Corvette really do look like real cars-just awesome. I bet it's good to have them out for you to enjoy again. I definitely enjoyed seeing your photos! Thanks for posting them Cliff.
  10. Very nicely done! Your paint job is spectacular! Seeing your Cutlass takes me back to my high school days. These cars were everywhere!
  11. Fantastic build Mr. Lin! Thankyou for sharing your process in the video. I would love to be able to lay down a finish like this. -back to the paint booth I go!
  12. Your Buick is drop dead gorgeous Gene! It really does look like a real car. I especially admire your interior and engine bay work on this one. Very, very nice.
  13. Yes that Fumby Street Motors model is very nice. A friend of mine has one. I created a 3D computer model of a WC 22 several years ago, but I don’t know if it’s suitable for 3D printing. It would most likely need a lot of work to get it ready. It would be a nice subject to have in 1/25 scale.
  14. What a knockout! Your execution on this model is first rate all around. After seeing your work on this I predict a lot of people will be wanting to build their own copy of this kit. Me included! I’ll have to see if I can find one. Thanks for sharing some of your build details as well.
  15. Now that’s what I call a sleeper! Grandma would not be wasting much time getting to the grocery store. Great colour choice. (The only giveaway would be the slightly beefy tires.) You’ve shown that with a little attention to detail this kit can be made to look really good. Especially in regards to the engine and rolling stock. Great job!
  16. Super job on this Chevy. You really did this vintage kit justice. I like the colour choice as well.

    green t bucket

    A classic T-bucket. You really nailed the look! Awesome attention to detail throughout, but that engine.....gorgeous!
  18. Quite a creative approach to take on this car. Good call switching the colour combination. I like those wheels too.
  19. What a blast it was to see your collection of hotrods! Just seeing that scoop on the red 32 roadster takes me right back to when I was a little kid watching my big brother Wally working on his models. Very fond memories. Thankyou!!
  20. What a 'tight' build you did, all the edges and seams were taken care of. I love the colour combo. Very classy.
  21. You've done a beautiful and inspired job restoring this one. I love to see these oldies brought back to life. Gorgeous paint job, and I bet you had fun with the bare medal foil-fest! Did you send the bumpers out to be re-chromed?
  22. This is a gorgeous model. What a tremendous job you did bringing it back from a very sorry state! It's always great to see an uncommon body style. Everything looks very accurate and I enjoy seeing models that have a back story, -nostalgia is a big part of car modelling for me too.

    My 2020

    Quite a group of knockouts you have here!! Beautiful, beautiful work. Inspirational actually. It's almost impossible to choose a favorite, but I'm drawn to the '66 Chevelle.
  24. You might as well face it, you're addicted to rust! Your weathering skills are outstanding! You have a great collection of beaters here. I think my favorite is the yellow model A coupe. Is that the Revell kit? I enjoyed looking at your pictires, thanks for posting them.

    1962 Chevy

    A very cool and tasteful build. I really like your color choice, it's beautiful. Great wheels too.
