  1. Unique concept. Excellent weathering!
  2. Ah, brings back some fond memories. Great project and nice work. Keep us posted with your progress please!
  3. So cool! Bringing back some fond memories from my youth!
  4. Very nice David. Please keep us posted. I'd enjoy seeing your progress.
  5. David, very cool project. Love me some Pontiacs! Years ago, I had an argument with a model seller that said 1:24 and 1:25 were the same. I sent him photos of two of my built Mustangs, side-by-side, one 1:24 and one 1:25, and the argument was over. I ain't done many resins but the one or two I did referenced existing kits for donors.
  6. Hi Terry. I'm in The Villages and have always lived in the south, so I know about humidity! After trying some food dehydrators, I pulled the trigger on this, and ain't regretted it: https://www.micromark.com/Dr.-Dry-Booth

  8. Hey Bill. You'll love these forums. Can't wait to see some of your projects!
  9. Another ambitious project, I found this old screw-bottom, curbside AMT built up convertible in fair shape on eBay. I loved the 50s and 60s nascar when they used to run convertibles. I put this one in the freezer for a few days, then disassembled it, and put in in the stripper this afternoon. I just found a photo of Joe Weatherly's 1960 Ford Convertible #12. SlotcarFever has the decals so I'm ordering them.

  11. Thanks, yall. I'm thinking of another project for the other DM wrecker in the background of that 2nd photo.
  12. Thanks, Daniel. I've bookmarked that site and will check it out later today.
  13. This has been a fun project. At first, I was just going to remove the graphics and paint the wheels black. Then I found a styrene dump truck bed and said, why not? I had a couple of these Danbury Mint wreckers in less than great condition. I'm going to do a little more experimenting with the weathering, then maybe a little diorama.

  15. I already had the one without the skirts. It was listed as "salvage" but the only thing wrong was the missing skirts and hubcaps. The other one I just got in and it's MIB.
