  1. I did a "what-if" the show was back on the air today restomod build of the Starksy and Hutch Stripped Tomato. Molded in the front bumper, added a hood scoop, custom wheels and low-profile tires and stanced ride height, recaro seats replace the bench seat and of course a total redesign of the big fat stripe.
  2. Bella! That is a beauty of a build, well done!
  3. Thanks for the update, I was just going to order tonight from his site directly. Sorry to hear he's laid-up and can't work. I'll look him up in the future.
  4. Fantastic! Thank you Tommy! I thought I had seen one available, just couldn't find who had it and of course, I forgot about Bandit Resin to search.
  5. I've searched this forum and about everywhere else, looking for info on a 1969 or 1970 Chevy pickup grill and bumper if anyone has cast one. I'd like to convert the 1972 kit to tribute a build of a buddies 1970
  6. Wow, Dann, this is outstanding. Really enjoying seeing the build in progress of this one

    Well done! Excellent craftsmanship with this build. A show-winner!
  8. Excellent build of this rare kit. Great restoration, you knocked it out of the park!
  9. Nice work! I like the conversion, well done
  10. Wow, everyone's Snaptite builds look great! I enjoy doing a bit of extra work to make a Snaptite kit look different, here's several of mine.
  11. Impressive! Nice work all around and first C7 build I've seen with opening doors, well done!
  12. Wow! Just my style, great looking build and well executed pro-touring look
  13. Thanks, Dave. Yes, this is the 6th of 16 I have completed. Here are the other 5 completed so far
  14. I have been on a building quest of re-creating the original Sweet 16 Hot Wheels cars from 1968. This is #6, the Custom Cougar. Started with the Modelhaus 1967 Cougar, shaved the door handles, emblems, wipers, and drip rails. Molded in the hood "bumps" most all Hot Wheels have some variation. Wheels are Pegasus "T's" big and little's, used a black and red Sharpie to recreate the Redlines. Aluminum tubing for the "zoomies" side exhaust. Color is Peridot - FolkArt craft paint and several coats of Duplicolor clear polished. Interior I used Desert Beige to replicate the darker interior color. The Hot Wheels Diecast
  15. Very nice! Great color choices
  16. Nicely done! I like the finish as well for a stock build.
  17. No offense at all! Corvette generation layout: C1 > 1953-1962 / C2 > 1963-1967 / C3 > 1968-1982 with three variations I call C3.1 > 1968-1972 / C3.2 > 1973-1979 / C3.3 > 1980-1982 - NO 1983 model Corvette even though it was the 30th Anniversary. C4 > 1984-1996 with two variations of the front and rear bumpers and interiors 1984-1989 and 1990-1996 / C5 > 1997-2004 / C6 > 2005-2013 / C7 > 2014-current Sounds great, do a brick/maroon theme, can't wait to see them, I'm a Vette nut by the way...
  18. Thanks, Mike, appreciate the comment and the C3 has become one of my favorite builds, I owned an 81 for 6-months back in the 80's. Yes, I'm building all generations in this same theme, a complete C1 to C7. Next on the bench is a 1990 C4. I'll also be building the other two C3's because they are different, a C3.1 -1969 / C3.2 - 1976.
  19. Looks great, nice work on this basic kit especially
