  1. I admire your attention to authentic detail. I'm definitely gonna follow you on this! When I was in high school, my dad had the only cool car he ever owned; a 1968 Dodge Dart GT. It had the 273 and automatic transmission. Not a real 'muscle car' but still cool compared to what I drove to school ; Mom's hand-me-down '63 Dodge station wagon. Every now and then, Dad would let me take the Dart out for a date. Of course, the wagon with the seats folded down was more popular with my friends for double dates to the drive in.
  2. Nice job! Some headlight covers would be a nice addition. Do you know of anyone who makes those? I could use several sets for my vintage NASCAR projects.
  3. Thanks for the suggestions! I think I'll try the wax first. With so many items in the diorama, that seems like the quickest and easiest way.
  4. Moved it to the garage for more room and better lighting. No other progress to post yet.
  5. Cool. Love the sepia photos.
  6. I know what you mean. I just moved my diorama from the model room to the garage for more space.
  7. Very nice work. Your detail inspires me. Model Round up is a great source. I've been ordering from Jack for several years.
  8. I'm working on a new garage diorama but every time I bump the table the least, everything falls over. What do yall recommend for securing the figures and other stuff to the base? I don't want it to be permanent and thought maybe something like silly putty or hot wax. Any suggestions?
  9. Impressive detail! I wish my hands were still steady enough to do that kind of work.
  10. Gorgeous! Did the hood hinges come with the kit? I used to find some resin hinges to add when the kit didn't have 'em, but can't seem to find them anymore.
  11. Wow! I'd love to see more details of this project. Truly impressive work!
  12. Impressive work, Tim. Please keep us posted.
  13. Looks pretty good. I've never tried a Polar Lights kit. I probably won't.n What about Speedway Decals?
