  1. https://www.facebook.com/TheBeastOfTheEastNY Unfortunately they had to reschedule the model contest for April 4th 2020 because of old man winter.
  2. I have to say, most of my builds are rebuilt from old kits. I enjoy turning something old into something new again. It's funny, I buy new boxed kits & find myself using all the parts for rebuilding something old. I guess that's why I have such a huge parts pile, it ALL ends up just parts, no complete kits.
  3. I know, I saw it and went crazy.😍 Good luck , I can't wait to see what you do with it.
  4. Yea, I was inspired by this...
  5. I started tearing this apart yesterday. LOTS of glue but i'm getting there.
  6. Saw this & figured i'd share it. Looks good but not sure if I can make it.
  7. You should stop taking pictures of real cars & parts and passing them off as models. What I really want to know is where you got that giant dime? 😉 All kidding aside, this is amazing work and thank you for sharing it with us.
  8. How about a Maxwell, I've loved these since I was a kid.
  9. You like that? I said basically that same thing only with more colorful words.😉
  10. I'm not sure how it's back on the 1st page, but thanks guys.
  11. ebay lot buy. $22 couldn't pass it up, I've wanted the Chrysler for a while.
  12. They're still doing Dukes of Hazzard vehicles in diecast. Greenlight is putting out a a line of different police cars, uncle Jesse's pickup, Daisy's jeep & hopefully more in different scales. No "Dukes" writing or flags anywhere but that's what they clearly are. https://www.3000toys.com/catalog/products.aspx?FIND=dukes&ORDER=M&MFG=GREENLIGHT&setup=
  13. Wow! Great work on this little Model A. I've worked on lots of A Models over the years, 1:1 to 1/25, and this is coming along nicely. If your using a stock transmission the pedals for the clutch & brake look like this... The gas pedal has a separate bracket that mounts on the top of the bell housing where those 2 bumps are. you really can't see it once it's all together so I'm not sure if you want to build it or not.

    Modeler's Scars

    I can't count the scars on my hands from knife slips, not too mention drilling into my fingers with a pin vise, but I have a good one on my left thigh I had to get stitched up. When I was about 12 years old I was cutting the nose off of a 54 Chevy on my lap. When it cut through the fender it kept going handle deep into my thigh. I wasn't going to tell my parents about it until I tried to stand up, OUCH!!! it was deep enough that it hit muscle. You can still see it and if you run your finger over it you can feel a divot.
