  1. Brockway Construction Water Wagon

    Beautiful tanker, as mentioned, that finish is really sweet. Could you show some close-ups of the pump assembly, or better yet maybe a WIP on how you did it?
  2. 1955 Chevrolet Belair convertible

    One mighty fine looking Chevy convertible. Beautiful detail work in the interior and an excellent choice of colors.
  3. Very nice looking old-style rod. I have seen that exhaust treatment on pictures of other 1:1's from the era. Never understood how they would protect the paint from blistering. Anyhow, you caught the very essence of the era with this build. Sure wish Revell would rerelease those wheels and tires.
  4. AMT 1957 Ford Thunderbird

    Very excellent T-Bird. Your patience and building skills are evident by turning this somewhat sow's ear of a kit into a very fine silk purse. Gives me some incentive to dig mine out of the stash.
  5. Top Sportsman '69 Camaro WIP

    Going to be one wicked Camaro. Looking forward to progress.

  7. '65 Falcon A/FX

    Really enjoying watching this one come together. The "minor" details are what is making it come to life. Keep those updates coming.
  8. '34 Ford Coupe

    Beautiful old rod. Where did you get those beautiful wheels and tires?
  9. How cold is it where you live?

    Thursday I wore a T-shirt to work, it was in the high 70's tickling the 80's; this morning I will need to wear my overcoat to church it is 24 degrees. And they are predicting a possible wintry mix for overnight, glad I have tomorrow off. It will be a good day to begin on reconstructing my basement work space after having some drainage work done down there.
  10. Kenny Bernstein's Ford Tempo F/C

    A real beauty, excellent attention to detail.

  12. 1956 Vicky.

    Excellent build of one of the more beautiful Tri-5's. Really like the color combination and your attention to cleanliness in building is over the top.
  13. Trade

    Which 40 kit is it: AMT, Lindberg, Revell? I have a Corvair parts kits and the engine parts pack. Of course everything is packed up in my basement right now, I am getting some work done tomorrow, than hope to get my shelves back up early next week.
  14. 1928 Ford Sedan 60's Style Altered UPDATED 2/10/19

    Mighty fine looking sedan. Some excellent scratchbuilding. Are you going to drill holes in the visor to allow air to escape at speed?
  15. source of styrene

    I have used those quite often. Another good source is to go to your nearest sign maker. Many of them use different thicknesses of styrene and have barrels full of scrap pieces and will sell them fairly reasonable. The pieces may not be square, but are usually large enough to cut some usable pieces.
