  1. Beautiful! I just got a Ford Lightning and plan on stealing this idea with my 61 f100. Great job!
  2. Wow this is cool. I wish I could figure out the salt thing but I never seem to get it right. Great job, I can't wait to see it finished.
  3. My sister found the Fords for $1 each at a yard sale. The rest is from a friends mother who was cleaning out a storage trailer and found some of her sons old toys & models. He was a very good friend of mine and lost his life in a car accident a few years ago. She said I could have all the model stuff she finds and this is just the start. We built and traded models together from the early 80s on up until he passed. She's moving now and needs to get rid of it but it's hard. We will be getting into his old room soon & the attic. It's fun to see some of this old stuff but sad too.
  4. Nice car, it reminds me of the 1919 Dodge Brothers barn find my father bought about 5 years ago for $1500. We got it home, got it running & he sold it a few months later. It's a shame these cars don't bring better money, they're real history and cool as can be.
  5. This is going to be a great build. I like what you have so far. I can't wait to see your wrecker boom, I've built a few different styles over the years. I used some gears from ebay, I've have torn apart some cheap wind up toys and pull and go cars for the gears they both work and look fine to me. Here's some...
  6. My friend and I have a little HO dragstrip & it's lots of fun. I built this wheel stander just because I saw one on a youtube video and figured I'd try one. It worked great, not fast but fun to watch.
  7. That's a cool looking C cab. It reminds me of a tandem axle truck that was running around the car shows when I was younger.
  8. I've been wanting one of these kits for a while now and after seeing this one I want one even more. GREAT JOB!!!
  9. Great job! Perfect transformation!
  10. I got some better outside pics today. Thanks for all the great comments too.
  11. I couldn't say it any better. Stay strong & thanks for all your kind words, inspiration and great builds over the years. Don't be a stranger around here.
  12. I had this horrible Monogram 32 Ford kit & a bunch of left over Model A parts so this is what I came up with. I tried to sell the 32 kit for $7.00 on ebay & couldn't, so when I opened it I saw why.🤮 Not much detail at all & the fenders had the chassis molded in it so I wasn't going to use it. But after looking at the parts I had I figured, why not. I shortened the chassis to make the cab & bed fit better & the bed is from an old early iron roadster pickup. It came out pretty good, Ill get some better pictures outside tomorrow, it's raining like a cow wizzing on a flat rock today.
