    TV Batmobile

    Very nice. That was the best Batmobile too. Although I do like the Tumbler.
  2. It's 1/24. I built it around '99 or so. I was watching show about it on Jay Leno's garage recently. It was kind of forgotten on the shelf. So I took it out, gave it a little fresh wax and took some good photos.
  3. Hi Angel. Looks like Sparky and Louie could be buddies. :-)
  4. I ride a mountain bike. I have two. My 16 y.o. bike and my newer one (1 y.o.) The old one is a 2000 Cannondale SuperV700SX: And the new on is a 2015 Cannondale Scalpel 29 Carbon 3:
  5. I haven't had that happen. I'm an engineer and I'll get annoying calls to get me to subscribe to free trade magazines for fields I'm not involved in or know anything about. They ask me the 20 questions and I answer NO to all of them and sometimes I still get the magazines. They go from the mailbox to the trash. BUT, I do belong to freebizmag.com and they are also used for getting free trade mags. However they also offer me free magazines that you normally pay a subscription fee for, common magazine you find on the magazine rack. Most are for magaizine that are of no interest but sometimes I do get them for magaizines I like. So then I fill out the form on line and get the free magazine. I don't even care about the free trade mag. I've had a free subscrition to Popular Science, Autoweek, Car Craft and Automobile.
  6. Here's my little fella'. His name is Louie and is 6 lbs of terror when he sees a big dog. Otherwise he's a playful little sweetie.
  7. I've done that before only to show that I had built the model but I don't put a whole mess of pictures up. I recently did it at Scale Auto for a bike someone was building. I had built the same bike years ago. But when you do it don't try to take the limelight away from him. In fact I just posted that bike on this forum recently. Anyway, the builder asked me how I did a certain effect on my model and I replied back telling him how I had done it. Some one else also pointed out an error I had made that I was easily able to fix. Then we became pen-pals and exchanged e-mail addresses and correspond back and forth on the other side of the planet.
  8. I remember hearing about that too! ROTFL!
  9. Well, you wouldn't believe what kind of imbecile videos I have come across on YouTube. Did you know there seems to be a movement of imbeciles that think the earth is flat? I mean really? Occasionally I would leave a comment on one and the people that reply are dumber than a box of rocks. They think they know it all and they are totally clueless in science and probably can't do any math either. And then there's other nonsense like "rockets don't work in space". AAARRRGGG! If these people are America's future things are going to be pretty sad here. Of course these morons won't go anywhere in life. Well, I just wanted to tell you what irks me. I kept it short.
  10. I prefer liquid glues. The Testors liquid glue is just fine.
  11. I built this around 2005. It was the first bike model I ever built and it was a fun build.
  12. My Mercedes CLK-GTR which I will have to post up seperately with a bunch of pictures, but here's just one.
  13. That is way cool! Great display. Will you take $1100 for the car?
  14. There's nothing special about the model but it came out clean. It's painted in sub-lime green with a pearlcoat. The roof is just gray primer. I painted the side view mirrors body color because one was broken and just gluing two chrome pieces together wouldn't look good. I think I built this in 2001 or so.
  15. Looks really sharp. I have an old build of the Tamiya kit of that car I'll have to post too.
  16. There should be a forum for motorcycles too. I like to build them and so do others. I guess I'll find a place to show them here anyway. I don't think anyone will get upset about them.
  17. I think I remember you. Did you like to build weathered cars? You should come down for the Southern Nationals in Nov.
  18. Here's a couple: The Two Sides of Peter Banks: And Godbluff: Both from the 70's when I was in college which is where I got turned on to this kind of music.
  19. I have two. Just super stockers, the Sox & Martin '67 Hemi GTX and the Ramcharger '64 Dodge 330.
  20. I built one of those for somebody but I didn't have to repair it. But those wheels came with a built in fixture for holding the spokes in place. It was half built when I got it because two other model builders couldn't finish it and they never built a Pocher before. I have their Bugatti Type 50T that I built in '82 so that got me the job. So I finished it up and got paid $750 to do it too.
  21. Looks like a nice clean build.
  22. Me too. The Untouchable is on there, I was watching that for a while and Highway Patrol too. Right now I'm watching a Brit sci-fi show from the early 80's, Blake's 7.
  23. Here's our little Louie. He's a spunky little guy. Small in size (6 lbs) and big in personality.
