    I was actually looking at this site Saturday. Which is probably what I will go with when the time comes. Thanks everyone.
  2. PPvintagekits

    Anyone know if ppvintagekits is around? I’ve sent them a few emails and no reply. Tried calling and no answer. A couple years ago I had ordered some semi fenders from them and was hoping to order another set. If they are not around anymore is there another site the does semi fenders and parts?

  5. 1965 Ford Galaxy 500 XL

    Hello all. Well it has been a long time since I’ve last posted or even built a model. Yesterday I went to the Oregon Society of Scale modelers show in clackamas or at Denny’s. Entered two models. A 58 Edsel and a 54 Hudson Hornet which took 2nd place in factory stock. So that reignited my desire to build again. Here’s a picture of the two I entered in the show. And the project I am starting on.

  7. 1969 Chevy nova COPO

    Hello everyone. Well this isn't really on the work bench yet as my plans are to enter in the model car show in February. But, I do need some help. This wheel be my first time lowering a model car and I would like to keep the realism of it if possible. The rear end I have figured out. The front suspension is another story. A-arm is mounted to the frame and there isn't a lot of room to hack off the spindle. I was thinking of sawing off the A-arm to bring it up some but there ain't a lot of room to do that. So any suggestions, advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

  11. 1958 Edsel Pacer

    Hello everyone. Here is a 1958 Edsel Pacer. This is a box stock build like most of my models. It is painted Testors French Blue and Gloss White. Matching Interior with some bare metal foiling on the door panels. The engine is factory correct Goldenrod yellow 361cu v8. This being an AMT kit it went together rather nicely. Not very many fitment issues. All comments welcome. Enjoy!!
  12. 1958 Edsel Pacer

    Yeah the backup lights are there. Guess I missed that detail. Will get it fixed up over the weekend. Thanks guys
  13. Pro Del Rio 57

    That is a beautiful wagon. The police license plate doesn't fit in my opinion. What are the colors you used? I love the interior!
  14. 1958 Edsel Pacer

    So here is my next build. Was gonna start a plymouth satellite but still waiting on paint. Come on scalefinishes!! holdin me back. Anyways, What I found interesting inside the instructions was this little pamphlet from 1998. Nearly 20 years ago we could get 6 issues of the blueprinter for $10 dollars!!
  15. 1958 Edsel Pacer

    Yes I am working on that right now

  18. 1958 Edsel Pacer

    Well its been a little while since I've last posted or even worked on the Edsel. But I am back at it. Got the engine painted Goldenrod yellow. And most of the interior is done. I have a few more parts to paint and let dry then I can start gluing parts together and get this one done.
  19. 1958 Edsel Pacer

    Ok here is another update. Little bit more bmf on the passenger side. I can't do much more until I get the paint for the engine so I got another build goin usually got two or three goin at a time.
  20. 1958 Edsel Pacer

    That is very interesting Maindrian Pace. I didn't like the color at first but it grows on ya. Here is an update pic.
  21. 1958 Edsel Pacer

    Well Steve dared me to be different so here it is. Testors French Blue. I think it will go good with the white.
  22. 1958 Edsel Pacer

    That is a great looking car. They certainly don't make em like they use to! Talked to my local hobby shop. Gonna pick up the paint tomorrow and get started. Sent an email off to scalefinishes and still no reply. So I'm gonna have to cancel the order and put the Satellite on hold. Very upsetting. Be different ya say there steve? well a 32 Ford Five window coupe I did comes to mind. It is Aluma Yellow Pearl over aluminum. Came out a yellow-ish Green.
  23. 1958 Edsel Pacer

    Thanks for the advice Steve. I'm gonna go with the Horizon blue and White. Just need to see if the local hobby shop has that paint and a few other items.
  24. 1958 Edsel Pacer

    oooh wow that is a great color combination! I may have to do that instead. Has anyone ordered from scalefinishes.com recently? Sent an email but Have not heard back. Might have to order with mcw for my factory colors. Thanks for sharing LoveFordGalaxy
