  1. Thanks again for all the kind comments!
  2. Thanks again for all your kind comments! I really appreciate them.
  3. WOW! This is beautiful! Very nice work. I love that color. Why the New Jersey plate? I'm an ex-New Jersian.
  4. Nice work! I love these MGs. I also forget how small they were. Beautiful cars.
  5. Very nice work!! That color looks great! This brings back memories. I got my license on a '71 Pinto. How could anyone fail taking the test in that little car, it was a breeze!
  6. Thanks guys for all your kind comments!
  7. bisc63 - thank you for the really nice comment! The paint (after many other colors tested) ended up being Testors Extreme Lacquer rattle can Flaming Orange over a white base.
  8. Nice work! I can't imagine how long this 1:1 car is!
  9. I started with a ’48 Lincoln glue bomb. This must have been build (very poorly) about 50 years ago. I had to take apart every piece including all the body parts. I decided to remove the single headlights and put in double headlights and remove some of the front bumper to view the cool grill better. I added a ’36 Mercedes straight eight engine (from Rommels Rod), as it fit perfectly. I put some holes in the rear fenders for the exhaust tips, added spoke wheels into the lowered body. I also shortened the windshield and the ragtop roof. The interior is a mix match of seats and door panels from a ’61 Chevy. The console is from the Red Baron altered to fit between the Impala seats. The speakers and rear panel are scratch-built. Thanks for looking and I hope you like it. Dave
  10. So many awesome mock-ups here! I did finish this one but here is the mock-up. I started with a Dish network remote.
  11. Nice thread! I started this one using an old garden cylinder sprinkler, the cab from the Garbage Truck, the front of a GTO and the rear from a '58 T-Bird. I have since done some more work but its not finished yet. It's sort of a cartoonish model.
  12. I am soooo looking forward to going to this!! I recently moved here from NJ and I really miss NNL East.
  13. Thanks guys for all the nice comments. This build is on hold right now as I need to come up with a paint scheme.
  14. Thanks for all your nice comments. I know that this vehicle may not be able to be a real car as I had to alter some features to make it look good. The front tires are tight and if it were a real vehicle it wouldn't turn without hitting the body but I used my artistic license on it. I had fun building it. As far as the color goes it was a happy accident. I started with one color that looked blue in the container but it didn't come out the same blue so I went on to a couple other colors. Somehow it became color changing. I would have preferred a lighter blue but I do like the color change so I decided to keep it.
  15. This is my first complete build since moving to Arizona 4 months ago. I'm looking forward to more! A frankenstein build combining a Jeep and monster tires and wheels. I added the beach-surf scene and flowered the seats, cooler and surfboard. I had this in the WIP but finished it.
  16. WOW! This is some really nice work! I didn't realize that this model could be that cool!
  17. Nice work on this van. I like the color. I remember quite a few of these on the road back in the day.
  18. Thanks guys! I finally got it painted. We recently moved across country from NJ to AZ and I thought lost my airbrush. after tearing things apart I finally found it. I tried different colors of nail polish and somehow got this color. I wanted the vehicle blue after its name - The Blue Crab. Its a color change combination of about 3 different color nail polishes. I'm still working on the surfboard colors. I think they will compliment the blue. More to come! Thanks for looking! Dave
