  2. keep stopping at the end of my builds

    The story of my life. I don't know (and don't want to) how many unfinished projects I have.
  3. 70 Cougar center grill insert, rear taillight and bumper

    Have you checked with Kevin at Missing Link? I got a center grill from him awhile back.
  4. Competition Resin still in business?

    I have not had good service. I bought two teardrop hoods for AMT '65 Mustangs. They were both undersize. Here's their response.... "I checked those hoods out and you are right, they are narrow The master fits, just made a new mold for those, don't know how I got so much shrinkage on the new mold. Most of the hood I do are a bit larger for a better fit. I'll take me a few weeks to make a new mold or you can try to add a piece of strip plastic to the side." So I asked for new hoods, and never got another response, or new hoods. I'll never buy from them again.
  5. 50 Chevy Farm Truck

    Great work! How did you make the bales of hay?
  6. 1963 Apollo 3500 GT

    I became obsessed with this beautiful car when I first saw The Love Bug movie many moons ago. Any chance this is being resin cast?

    Thx Curt! More progress.....the front wall "glass" is installed, and the Zephyr letters are done.
  8. Thanks for the post, I'll be ordering one asap. I'm thinking Dirty Harry...
  9. 1/25 Zephyr gas station

    I decided the station needed a candy machine, so I threw one together today. I found a photo of a vintage candy dispenser, added my fav candy bars and printed it out on photo paper. Next I made a simple plastic box and glued the images on. I used brass rod for the legs.
  10. Three old Texaco stations + a little surprise

    This one was in Miami, next to the Tropicaire Drive-In. http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/16525/photos
  11. 1/25 Zephyr gas station

    I thought about it. But, it seems like no one bothers to lift the seat on public johns.
  12. 1/25 Zephyr gas station

    Thx guys I received the toilets and sinks from Scale Equipment. They are very nice, and come with everything shown here. I did some measuring and found the toilets are slightly undersized; the sinks are way too big. So I "resized" the sinks to fit the tiny bathrooms. Here's the finished women's toilet. I glued a piece of clear plastic in with Elmers glue to simulate water. For a look at the "realistic" gas station men's toilet (not for the easily offended!), click here........ http://public.fotki.com/fordflashback/dioramas/gas-station-1/1520210354476.html And the attendant's uniform is getting some detailing too....
  13. 1966 Buick Engines

    Around 1979 one of my brothers bought a '66 Special with a 300 V8. Just like this one, except for the cool wheels. I need to find a Skylark kit to build a replica. Was the 300 a nailhead?
