  1. "Bring Out Your Dead" Completion Build--ROUND 2 Is On!

    I may be able to help you guys
  2. "Bring Out Your Dead" Completion Build--ROUND 2 Is On!

    I’ve always liked this kit from when I was a kid. I had one or two back then. I don’t know what happened to them, but I recently acquired another one.
  3. Yenko Deuce Nova

    This is a project that was in the running for my next “Bring out your Dead” subject. But while I was waiting for voting to close I decided to see if I could knock it out in 3 days. And I did!
  4. "Bring Out Your Dead" Completion Build--ROUND 2 Is On!

    Spent tonight setting the ride height. The wheels are from the first issue of the Revell Nova. Tires are from the Revell 32 Vicky.

    Fussing with the Austin’s flip nose tonight. It’s close to where I want it. Final adjustments will be after paint. Now to go look for a front end!
  6. 67 Corvette coupe

    I am confused, the box says 1/25 scale but if each of the squares on the grid is 1 inch then it’s a 15 inch model. What scale is that?

    That’s looking real nice!😃👍
  8. It’s going to be a replica of my friend’s car, and it is a street rod!
  9. While waiting for the voting to finish, I got bored and picked up the Nova. Like I said any other post it was pretty close to getting done. Painted in 2008 Decal in 2019! So it was a no brainer! I’ll post more pictures in the under glass section.
  10. "Bring Out Your Dead" Completion Build--ROUND 2 Is On!

    So I had three days worth of downtime while I waited for the voting to get done on my next project. And guess what? I finished the Yenko Deuce Nova! So my Nova project is done! Now onto the winner of the vote the Austin!
  11. The Austin and Impala both got 7 votes The Rallye Olds got 5 Ferraris got 4 and the Deuce 3 Prostreeter69 voted for “the Nova or the Austin” so his vote became the tie breaker!
  12. My next “Bring Out Your Dead” project is going out for a vote.

    Voting is closed and it looks like my next “Gitter Done” is the AUSTIN! Dad’s 58 Chevy was a close 2nd only because someone mentioned the Austin as a second choice! That was the tie breaker!

    I posted a new topic in the on the workbench section. It shows eight possible subjects for my next bring out your dead completion. Please go over and cast a vote. I will tally up the votes on Wednesday night.
  14. OK everyone, I came up a little idea on choosing my next bring out your dead project. The 1970 Monte finished up pretty quick. So it’s time to choose a second one for this round. Below are some pictures of potential candidates. Whatever project gets the most votes by Wednesday 6pm eastern will be my next “gitter done” 😁👍 #1 1958 Impala convertible This will be a replica of my father’s first car. The 58 Chevy is very near and dear to me. Here are a couple of pictures of dad’s car. #2 1969 Camaro This one is another family car. My mom drove a 69 Camaro in the mid 70s. Here is a picture of mom’s car. #3 1968 Hurst Olds convertible This one is not really too long dead. I started the conversion on this after I finished at the 69 Hurst Olds convertible a month or so ago. The question on this one would be should I do it gold or silver? I’m leaning towards gold since I already have a silver 68 hardtop. #4 1969 Baldwin Motion Camaro I painted this one around 15 to 20 years ago. The hood is glued in place so there will be no engine detail. This one is eventually to be towed by a 69 Phase lll Chevelle as part of a diorama. It also replaces the Camaro like this that I sold to Joel. #5 1970 Oldsmobile Rallye 350 This is another one that was painted at least 15 years ago. The details are of my own creation. I had bought a set from Fred Cady But was not happy with the hood decals. #6 1970 Yenko Deuce Nova This one was painted in 2008 according to my Fotki page. It’s been sitting in red paint since then. I had drawn up decals on my computer but the trunk decals weren’t long enough to wrap down to the bumper. I adjusted the decals a couple days ago and printed them out. After listening to The Model Car podcast, I picked up a can of Upol spray clear urethane they had talked about, and use this as my test subject. It worked very well. The engine and chassis are pretty much done for this one too so really wouldn’t take much time to finish it up. #7 1971 Ferrari Daytona coupe and spider These are a two-for. The chassis and engines are pretty much done too. But these are very intricate kits by Fujimi. #8 1948 Austin This will be a replica of my friends car. And I will be giving it to him when it’s done. Unfortunately I’ve had it over a year. So there you have it! Eight projects to choose from. Please only vote once. I will tally up the votes Wednesday night! Please cast your vote in this thread.
