      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.

    Thanks Bruce, I actually was testing that background and didn't care for it myself. Changed the pictures to new outdoor shots

    Nicely done! Looks great

    Thanks! Yes, opening some grills from the backside works, this one had enough material to sand off the back and still look decent. Took 10 minutes and the result was well worth it I think

    Thanks! The hinges are part of the kit, they are fixed and glued to the hood and slip into a slot in the firewall. While this is not accurate, it works for me.

    1970 Torino GT
    Just finished a long-time build of the Revell 70 Torino GT. I have to say, one of the best detailed kits I've built.Kept it mostly stock with exception of a custom Emerald Green pearlized and highly polished paint job. Lots of detail, opened the front grill center section, and spent some time on engine compartment detailing, which I actually do not enjoy doing unless I'm in a specific mood.Lowered front and rear suspension to "stance" the car better than stock and added some Aoshima custom 6-spoke wheels

    Wow! that's impressive! You should build one of your kits, all you really need are the Pegasus "T's" big and little's, a red and black Sharpie, you'd have a 1/25 tribute Hot Wheel. Thanks for the offer to send one out for reference, much appreciated, I'll see how far I can get with pictures I have filed from some of the Redline groups when I first started researching doing these.

    Mike, thanks.... I should have got the IMC VW kit since it is already front engine V8, however when I was scooping up all the kits I needed its was crazy expensive and I ended up buying the Revell kit. I'll be modifing it to have a chromed V8 up front. Think I'll do the Hot Pink color, as that is what I recall I had as a kid
