  1. Just testing.....

    What? No rosemåling ? Where does the time go? I would have never considered the Alternomad as a basis for a modernized Ghostbuster's car, but you made it work. Great job!
  2. Round 2 January 2018 Product Spotlight

    I can't sit through those videos. I would sure prefer a list or facebook posting or anything besides those intolerable nine minutes of talking.
  3. I hope you can share pics of the 2018 invitational miniatures show once it has occurred. Giving context to our toys really makes them enjoyable. And best of luck if the invitational is a competition.
  4. Yes, John, please post more pics. TKM Models are unique and an acquired taste for sure. But they are still interesting to see. Thanks.
  5. From the Imperial Club website, here is an interesting variation created by Derham when the car was new. I have to admit, though, that the four door hardtop is a better looking car. But I still look forward to a resin LeBaron pillared six window sedan.
  6. 78 Chrysler Cordoba

    A Cordoba CROWN no less! Looks great, thanks for sharing pics of your model.
  7. This is absurd. Nobody will post information about this seller, just casually mention his name or seven layer encrypted photos on his facebook page. I have tried every way I can and cannot get information. No pictures, no price list, no nothing. I don't think Modelhaus has much to worry about if this mystery caster remains as well hidden as he has from me. It is infuriating for people to post something they have acquired and then be unwilling or unable to provide sources. But at least now I know the apparent products are unauthorized duplicates and will not buy anyway.
  8. 4 door Tri Chevys ?

    It would help to know the manufacturer. Perhaps I can find one in the secondary market if I know who made it. Also, any chance the same supplier offers a 1956 Sport Sedan?
  9. 4 door Tri Chevys ?

    What is the source for the 1957 BelAir Sport Sedan? Thanks.
  10. This looks amazing! I can hardly believe I am looking at an accurate scale replica of the Crown Vic. So many attempts have been made over the years and none have come close on accuracy. Best of luck with the continuation of this project.
  11. Revell 2017 Releases

    This is how Suburbans are supposed to look. EDIT: It is MY opinion that Suburbans should have four doors and long wheelbases. This is a modified image. I added the rear doors and adjusted the wheelbase.
  12. This website features a lengthy thread on building a 1/6 scale 1977 Cadillac as used in the Breaking Bad television series. It might give some insight into the requirements of such a large replica, even though the method of construction is very different from what you are doing. http://www.onesixthwarriors.com/forum/sixth-scale-action-figure-news-reviews-discussion/775611-custom-scratchbuilt-metal-1-6-1977-cadillac-sedan-de-ville-now-finished.html GreenLight already makes a 1/18 scale assembled replica of the Impala Sport Sedan with figures included. That size is nowhere near as impressive as 1/6, but it it significantly less expensive. If you are looking for compatibility with 12 inch action figures, you are starting on a momentous journey. I wish you much success.
  13. revell 4Q2016 Release Annoucement

    The Bronco is interesting and unexpected. Should make creating the elusive first generation Expedition much easier than starting from scratch.
  14. 1964 Cadillac 'Superior Coach' Ambulance

    What is with the white overspray on the side windows of the real car? Did that have significance in the film?
  15. 1964 Cadillac 'Superior Coach' Ambulance

    You have done an amazingly similar thing to what Superior did to build the real cars in the odd 1964 and 1965 model years when the commercial chassis still used the wraparound windshield from 1959. Everything in the middle (door skins, door frames) is interchangeable from 1959 to 1965 on cars built by the same company. I like how your two colors of plastic demonstrate that procedure. But unless the Polar Lights kit is wrong, and I have never thought it to be, door lengths remain the same. Don't shorten until you have really good reference. Here is a page devoted to the funeral cars and ambulances in these years. Maybe it will be useful. http://www.newcadillacdatabase.org/static/CDB/Dbas_txt/prof6264.htm Keep going with your Cadillac. Progress so far looks fantastic.
