    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    Really nice clean builds, thanks for sharing them.

    Love 'em. You captured the spirit of the originals perfectly..

    Beautiful color on the car and I really like the blacks and dark metal in the engine bay. I'm going to file that away in the back of my head to inspire a build someday. I kinda think the injector hat doesn't work with the subtle toughness of the rest of the car, but that's just me, really nice work.

    Thanks, I was trying to make it much more complicated. Really appreciate you sharing this..

    If you have the time could you post some details on your headlight castings. I've been experimenting with different molds but just can't get them right, they look too toy like.  Yours look have the look I'm trying to get.

    Well done. Perfect color choice.

    Really nice work, and for the bonus points aren't the wheel covers from one of the 70's MPC Impala or Caprices? I remember one as a kid the could be built as a CRP Mountie or some kind of pace car and came with a trailer. I painted the center medallion the same red back then.

    I also wanted to mention that the headlights look much better than your average kit, did you do something different?  Excellent job on the rest of the model as well.

    Really clean build.  For the life of me I can't remember what my first model was.

    Perfect barn find finish, outstanding.

    I am a big fan of show cars, and love what you have done here both theme and execution. Really Ike the idea of the simple engine that's a different touch and it works well with the concept... Yeah I know here's the big "however"...  It's the tires, as cool as they are, with the hard sidewalls and no tread, to me they look very toy like and distract from the high level of the rest of your build. I've seen 1/20 scale formula tires used in show rod builds that look great, but I have no idea how hard it would be to find something like that.  What are your thought on the tires?
    Again I don't want to diminish the skill and effort you have put into this, it's great work from top to bottom and I really appreciate you sharing the build process, it's been fun to follow along, can't wait to see it under glass. 
    Edit: just remembered I've also seen grooved handle bar grips cut down for ultra wide show tires, can't remember where though.

    Beautiful work, and thanks for detailing your build process.

    Love the paint colors on this.  From looking at your paint detail work I wouldn't think it will take long for your BMF skills to come up to speed.  I'm sure it's been said hundreds of times around here, but always try to use a brand new blade and very light pressure, let the knife do the work.  Again this build has a great look.

    Don't know why, but the green headlights are my favorite part.  You seem to put a lot of thought into these builds even though they appear random, was that just a 'why not' moment, or is there a reason?

    Nice clean build, I like the colors. Thanks for posting
