  1. 1974 Plymouth Satellite "Sundance Special"

    Wowie! I owned a brown '74 Sundance a long time ago and this is just about perfect! Your build looks much better than my rusty 1:1 version did. Beautiful job!

    Thanks for the compliments! Yeah... those decals... I used a combo of the kit's sheet and two (2) sheets of Slixx decals to get it done. IF they released from the paper, didn't crumble or tear, it was fun getting them to lay flat. I tried everything I knew of: decal film, setting solvent, warm water, slightly soapy water, spit, Future, and lots and lots and lots of patience (two months worth, off and on)... many of them just wouldn't co-operate and had to be re-done, hence the three sheets. Quite a few I had to float into place with Future and hope for the best till they dried. Once it was all done, I brushed on a final coat of Future, hoping to keep everything bright and in place for years to come. But overall, I'm very happy with how it turned out. It's a sharp looking car and looks great from a normal distance.
  3. 1969 Chrysler 300 4 dr. ht. Air Trax resin built up

    Brilliant minds and all of that... I've got the '78 Cordoba on the bench as well, tho I'm doing it as a '79 300. I owned a '69 Newport Custom 2dr in the mid-eighties that I converted to a 300-looking car with a complete mint black 300 interior, front bumper and taillights. It was still a 383 HP powered ride, but Man! I loved that car! My resin version will be what the 1:1 car would have been like, had I finished it: a deep violet, shaved and lowered,, full skirted cruiser. Sorry for the thread highjacking...

    One of my favourite drivers... Those decals were a LOT of fun.
  5. 1969 Chrysler 300 4 dr. ht. Air Trax resin built up

    I've collected all the pieces... just need to get to it.
  6. 1932 Ford Bonneville Coupe / Revell

    Very very nice. I don't see anything that I don't like.
  7. 1969 Chrysler 300 4 dr. ht. Air Trax resin built up

    Very nice! I've got the two door version close to the top of my get-to pile. They are very nicely done trans kits.
  8. 1967 Ford Galaxie XL, 427 R Code.

    Beautiful job! Love the colour.
  9. '65 Pontiac 2 + 0

    The first time the chassis sits under the body without needing to prop up the wheels... I robbed the parts bin for a 400 4 speed combo, and modded the console to fit the 4 speed oar. It's not a correct fit but it works for me. Undecided what to do with the cargo area... there are some big ejector pin marks in the woodgrain, so I'll either cover it with something or fill the bed with scuba gear from the '70 Bonneville and whatever else I can cobble together. Comments always welcome.
  10. '64 Ford Country Sedan wagon

    Very nice!
  11. 1976 Cadillac Coupe DeVille by Modelhaus

    Very very nice!
  12. National Love Your Pet Day

    Every day is love your pet day! Otto, the Great Dane trying to look intimidating, while his nemesis Lola sneaks around his feet. The railing next to Otto is 42" high. He stands 35" at the withers and makes the scale groan at 150+ lbs. Roscoe, the One Eyed Wonder Dog! Not much in the brains department, but easily one of the happiest dogs I've ever seen. Lola, the brains of the outfit. Deviously smart...
  13. '78 Cordoba

    20, in gloss. I covered the gloss with a coat of Rustoleum Matt Clear.
  14. 1972 Dodge D200

    I love it! It looks exactly what a work truck owned by someone who cared about their stuff would look like. Nice job.
  15. '65 Pontiac 2 + 0

    Dug this 2+2 out of my gluebomb pile soon after I finished the '70 Bonneville last year. The leftover cargo bed and roof seemed like a decent fit into the '65... Comments always welcome.
