  1. Testors White Decal Paper

    I suspect you are using clear decal sheets and not white.
  2. Another rip off

    Trademarking or copyrights don't apply in this situation. The copyright belongs to the original car owner, or in some cases the artist who came up with the design, depending on their contract. So anyone reproducing the design from the car is responsible for getting the rights to do so. Someone copying from a decal printer who has the rights to the design could get a cease and desist from the original car owner or designer but not the decal guy. If you didn't get the rights to reproduce a design and someone duplicates your work, you got nothin. That being said I still think it's crappy to rip off someone's hard work, the only revenge is to make yours better, so no one wants the crappy rip off. Now if they are selling bad prints of your decals, as your decals then you can try to sue based on them damaging your reputation or some thing along that line.
  3. Sunset - the night is coming!

    I just picked up a group on eBay a few weeks ago. I admit I have a problem when it comes to this era of over the top boy racers.
  4. 1976 AMC Gremlin Custom GT

    Nice job on that Gremlin. I must admit I've always liked this series even as quirky as the styling is. There's also a Mustang II in the group, probably one of the better IMSA styled cars of the era.
  5. Does anybody else read Mooneyzs posts in Hulk Hogans voice? 😃 John, thanks for taking the time to share your builds, I really enjoy following along.
  6. 1961 Ford Ranchero

    I've had good results with Papilio brand paper. Good quality ink and printer are important and how you seal the ink. Don't think you'll find inkjet water slide paper as thin as printed decals, especially since you need to clear coat them before applying.
  7. Mercedes 450sl restore

    Don't think it's a promo, looks like one of the Monogram 450SL. Just thought that might help if you need to hunt up any parts.
  8. Well BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH. I have one of the revell couriers that I was going to kit bash with an old Datsun/Nissan 4x4 and I never noticed the top was chopped. Nice work you have going here, looking forward to the rest. Really i I can't use the word c r a p ?
  9. I see what you were going for Brian. With a rig like that, guaranteed you'd be a popular guy at a hill climb, mud bog or any other kind of "come break your truck" kind of event. f.
  10. Outstanding build, but I don't fully understand it. As a work truck it makes perfect sense and your attention to detail really brings it alive. It's just for a weekend warrior I don't get why you would want a welding rig instead of room for camping, fishing gear, canoe, etc. Not knocking it by any means, more looking for an education not an explanation, if that makes sense. However you slice it, it's an impressive job, I'm gonna have to go check out the rest of your build posts. Thanks for sharing it. f.
  11. Gas Station update July 30 2018

    Working with the for sale signs is an interesting idea, much less expensive than hobby store sheets for sure. How is it to work with, the same as styrene sheet, or does it work differently? Really nice work, by the way.
  12. Porsche 356 race car .

    Nice build, I really like the color scheme..
  13. Don't forget older fan belts were just as thick as they were wide and the cross section was tapered towards the inside. These were on any car that had a standard deep groove pulley, unlike the modern grooved pulley with flat grooved belts.
  14. Nissan Gloria 280E "Gulf"

    Very nice job on the weathering. The contrast between the crusty race inspired exterior and the plush luxury interior is weird, but I really like it. F.
  15. Very nice. The 5 gal water jug caught my eye, did you make it?
