  1. Snake, that's cool, thanks for the tribute picture, yours all look great, even the diecast, you should build a C6!
  2. Jim, thanks, the wheels are Pegasus Elite wheels and the deep rears are Pegasus aluminum sleeves that the smaller wheels slide into
  3. Thanks everyone for the nice comments, appreciate the feedback.
  4. I am building a series of Corvettes with the same Bright Red paint, wheels/tires, and tan interiors
  5. Well Done! Nice detail work
  6. Fantastic build, excellent trim details.
  7. Thanks! This kit everything fit great and minimal flash. Body mated to chassis no problem on this stock kit, I have not built the C5R, sorry can't confirm
  8. First finished build of 2018, Revell 1997 Corvette Coupe. Excellently detailed kit, so much better than the AMT versions. This the second build of a series of Corvette Coupes I'm building Bright Red with tan/black interior and with the same custom wheels (Pictured C2) Paint is Duplicolor Bright Red with several polished clear coats. Only custom part is the aluminum exhaust tips. C2 in the series
  9. wow, nice work, you certainly went all out on this build, looks great
  10. Thanks for all the comments, loud and clear the big wheels are not favored here in this forum. Funny I can post this on most any FB group and not one negative comment about the wheels, this is more a stock build group for sure. I don't build stock, many here are excellent craftsmen with stock builds, I admire all of them I see and sometimes wonder how cool the build would look with custom wheels, I just don't post that as a comment on your posts. Happy building in the New Year!
  11. My last finished build of 2017 I think... My tribute to Modelhaus, of their 1972 Buick Riviera Boat-tail. This is the last model I ordered from Modelhaus in May 2016 and received it November 2017. I will miss them like all of you will I'm sure. Another excellent cast, very detailed body, interior and parts. I chose a custom metallic brown paint, actually slightly two-tone below the chrome body accent strip. Lot's of hand-polished clear coats, this is mirror smooth and shiny Interior is Coffee Bean mixed with Mocha craft paints. Drilled out the headlights replaced with resin lenses I choose Pegasus wheels, as for me they fit well and fill the huge wheel-wells. Had a lot of fun with this one, thanks Modelhaus for all you have given us in the hobby
  12. Wow! Excellent build and thank you to post build pictures.
  13. Your Camaro is spot on and looks top-shelf
  14. Thanks Don, I changed the pictures to outside, much better
  15. Thanks Bruce, I actually was testing that background and didn't care for it myself. Changed the pictures to new outdoor shots
  16. Modified Monogram Tom Daniels California Vette Paint is Duplicolor Electric Red metallic
  17. Johan 64 Cadillac kit. Customized the interior with bucket seats front and rear. Paint is Rootbeer with pearl clear and several polished clear coats
  18. Cool! Nice work with bashing this. I like it!
