  1. $3.00 flea market rebuild, slump buster.
  2. This is a linberg Charger super bee that I got at ollies for 7.99 a while ago. I've never built a car newer than a 1970s before so this is all new too me. I hated the new charger when it came out because it's a 4 door so I'm trying to make it a 2 door.
  3. Are you planning on building this car? If so, I can't wait to see it & I hope you do it "on the workbench" so we can all watch it come together.
  4. Great job, that's one nice looking "T".
  5. I love this truck! Great colors, really nice body & I love the trim work on the sides. I drove one like it as a kid only mine was green.
  6. Beautiful! 57 Fords are my favorite cars ever since I was a kid and this is the best looking model of a wagon I've seen. I wish I had your talent to make one look this nice.

    Losing model parts

    I've had this happen too. If I don't put my beard in a pony tail or tuck it in my shirt it ends up knocking things off the bench. Sometimes there's paint in it & parts. I think if I work on something too long I'll have my own personal junkyard on my face. Talk about losing something & finding it right under your nose!🤪
  8. The top looks great & the I love that radiator shell. It wont be long & the primer & paint should be flying.
  9. I wish I had this for my collection! Great job!
  10. Thanks for the compliments guys.
  11. It looks like the real thing. Lots of great detail & the weathering is perfect! Great job!
  12. Thanks Paul, I used some thinned down flat grey waterbase paint. Nothing fancy just some old craft paint I had lying around. I brushed it on heavy, (making sure to get it in the scribed lines good) waited a few minutes to kind of soak in & then wiped it with a dry paper towel. I did it a couple times until it looked good to me. It was a trial & error thing that happened to work out. I tried to make the bathroom look like most I remember seeing as a kid. You could use it if you HAD TO but really didn't want to.🤢
