  1. I have always wanted to model this pro mod. Jeff Littletons Nova. He was a regular here on the west coast during the Super Chevy Show days in the 90s
  2. Awesome build, I think I built 2 of these when I was in high school. Loved the Hot Rod series pro street cars. Remember the corvette, beretta, and j2000?
  3. Here's a few Drag Boats I've been working on lately. The white boat is an original kit from the 60's . The blue boat is the Hemi Hydro reissue . Didn't want to butcher the survivor boat too much as it was started by my dad many years ago. As you can see by the photos there are some casting imperfections here and there. Just wanted to give it a little detail. The reissue is a little further from completion still mocking up the vdrive and getting the hull preped for paint.this one will get the blown 426 and a good amount of detail. Hope you enjoy the pics. Nate
  4. thank you speed freak, its from the monogram 41 willys street rod kit.
  5. This was a fairly recent build, mostly out of the box with a few changes here and there. Changed the front wheel and tire setup, went with full competition pro mod type headers instead of the block huggers that came with the kit. Reformed the exhaust to meet up with those. Also I opted for dual air cleaners rather than the scoop. Just have to finish up trim and details on the body & install the glass.
  6. This was originally my uncle's build, so far I have swapped a more detailed big block and heads, polar lights wheels and tires as well as the rear end from a fc kit. Next is scratch building a set of fenderwell dump headers. Slowly but surely. Not sure on the color choice yet. Still experimenting with it.
  7. Here's one I can call complete, winged express aa fuel altered. Built this about 8 years ago
  8. @modeler, there is one in particular I finished for him before he passed. He was a big Jungle Jim Leiberman fan. I finished a 1/16 Jungle Vega Funny Car and brought it to him. Currently my cousin has it. One of these days it will join the others in my display case.
  9. It must be a part of the rendezvous right? I own a 1:1 65 Buick Riviera, I've always wanted to take it down for that event. I always have something that prevents me from going
  10. thanks for the welcome, haven't been to ground control since they moved to yucca
  11. unortunately not. My uncle resided in the bay area near Napa. He never made it down here. I had the pleasure of knowing "jocko" Johnson before he passed. Visited his house often and even got some flat head ford parts from him years ago.
