  1. I believe this is a 69 Biscayne; are there any similar wheels out there in 1/25? Thanks Chris
  2. Spectacular workmanship; thank you for documenting this project so thoroughly! Chris
  3. Just ran across this thread; truly remarkable work! I've got two of these planned; one OOB with the exception of shortening the boom to 70', and the second will be a dual-axle conversion with the later Snorkel boom. Very nice! Chris
  4. Nice, thanks for the info Lee. Always been pleased with Speedway's products. Chris
  5. Just the roof-mounted chrome base and red lens, looking for 3 total sets. Thanks! Chris
  6. Johnny Lightning Coca-Cola van, stripped & repainted with Tamiya pure white. Custom decals by Speedway. I added the oval-shape to the front grille to backdate it. The '97 also featured a different side mirror design than depicted on the Johnny Lightning model, so the mirrors themselves are from the AMT rescue van, attached to mounts shaped from music wire. The roof-mounted corner mirror is from the AMT ALF Eagle pumper kit. The "windows" in the side doors are black decal. The three roof-mounted floodlights are Shapeways items from the Downrange Productions store. Chris
  7. Made a few minor tweaks to the Motor City Resin Kurbmaster kit to get it closer to the Chevy C20 shown in my references. Very nice kit, and good for my first resin kit given the simple shapes and low parts count. Decals by Speedway; roof-mounted AC unit and ladder racks scratchbuilt. Ladders are from an AMT American LaFrance fire truck. The lights are a modified Custom Squads item, and the sirens are from the Downrange Productions store on Shapeways. Chris
  8. Terrific model Alberto! Chris
  9. Overhead lights from Custom Squads, decals by Speedway, scratchbuilt antennas & rear step. Chris
  10. Thanks for the info, I appreciate it. Chris
  11. Looking for recommendations for brand/color to get close to Detroit green, either bottle or aerosol. Thanks Chris
