  1. I built this in tribute to my late dad and his truck he used on the farm
  2. The figures are American Diorama. I got them on ebay
  3. Yes the tires came with the kit
  4. The General is finally done. I've been working on this one for the last year so it's been a while since I've posted here. Hope y'all like it.
  5. I never use the same process for making rust. I constantly come up with different methods using oils, acrylics, powders, sponge's and brushes etc.
  6. Never use Windex or other cleaners that have ammonia in them. Ammonia will attack the plating on the inside of the airbrush and cause it to corrode over time. I destroyed two new Passche Talons before I figured this out.
  7. Been awhile since I posted anything. Here's my latest Mack.
  8. The engine was weathered to match the truck. The pic shown was taken when I was test fitting the engine before I weather it.
  9. This was built from an AMT kit. I put the original flathead on the pallet and installed a 409 with two fours.
  10. I got some great models at my local Ollie's. The chopper and Grand Prix were $9.99 and the chase Elliot was $3.99 I always remove the big orange Ollie price sticker's before I put them in my stash heap?
  11. Being a moonshine diorama builder myself this is a great build you've done. I wish more people would do moonshine builds.
  12. Mike, This is one of the best builds I've seen in a long while. It takes a lot of talent to build a daily driver and make it look that realistic. There's nothing more satisfying to me than to build something that's been used and abused. Tommy
  13. After seeing the level of skill you executed on this build I have no doubt that you'll repair that roof in nothing flat.
  14. I got this one a few months ago and finally got started on it. It'll go to a Army recruiting station just like the tank I built. These kits go together surprisingly easier than I expected. This was the gun ship model that has the guns and rockets mounted on the landing skids. The recruiter wanted a door gun like the Huey he was a gunner on so I scratch built a door gun. I still lack the ammo feed yet to finish the gun. I'll try to post a few picks as I progress. I'm weathering it as I build it so it's slow go. Tommy
  15. The tractor is a Farmall C made by Ertl. Got it on sale at tractor supply after Christmas. This one will do but I prefer precision series or Speccast for the much added details.
  16. The tractor is a Farmall C. Here where I live was Famall country back in the day with mostly super M's and super MTA's
  17. Excellent job on an excellent vintage racer. Gotta love the old school racer's.
  18. In the right photo setting this car would easily pass for the real thing. You did a super job all the way around.
  19. Hi Ted, I've got that book and it's a great read to say the least. Some other great books on North Georgia moonshining is "Mountain Spirits" and "More Mountain Spirits" both written by Joseph Earl Dabney. Then there's "Agents That Fly" and "A Breed Apart" both written by North Georgia revenuer Charles H Weems. Charles Weems was the man who first implemented aircraft into moonshine tracking. P.S. I'm aways up for a pool room burger. Tommy
  20. Welcome aboard Lane. My oldest son's name is Lane. Tommy
  21. The old school building shop is the only one I ever visited. I make it a point to eat at the pool room every time I'm within twenty miles of there. That place never gets old and the burgers are huge. I've been to the museum several times since it first opened years ago. I've not been since it reopened and added the moonshine. I've been meaning to got to the moonshine festival as well.
  22. I'm not far from Dawsonville. I use to eat at the Dawsonville pool room and visit awsome Bill's shop on occasion back in the day.
