  1. Dang! I thought I was bad... Oh wait I am just as bad...😁... I vote on the Olds Rallye 350 also... That's a nice Phantom build ya got going... MOF, all those stalled builds will be nice when finished...
  2. This Guy built a Prostreet car using part of the Max Rat chassis. It was in a collection I got that was built in the early 90's, shelved, and it appears to have collected dust for 20 years. I forgot that It was a build up. I thought it was a stalled project... I immediately disassembled it and cleaned everything up. I'm excited to see yours come to life... I've had a few of these over the years, the Red Malibu was the other issue... I hear Revell is going to Re-issue the kit soon, so I look forward to seeing it molded in white for the first time... Hmmm?... now I might have to paint this one white...🤔
  3. That sounds cool! I have one that was started in the 80's... It came to me in a collection. I already undid all his work but I been wanting to get it out and do my thing to it. I'll wait to see what you do to yours...
  4. Volvo 850 Turbo Wagon

    Soak it in hot water to soften up the styrene... That may get the pillers back in shape? It's a neat kit, wagons are cool no matter what brand.☺
  5. Hee! Hee! Hee! Hi, I'm Disco and I too am powerless over styrene... Thanks for sharing... I'm probably gonna start with my 55 Ford chopped top, Chevy powered, BBQ Tailgate Hot Rod. It has its own Workbench thread in the Truck section. I'll be adding updates there too.
  6. Lol! I believe Snake has here with this thread! I'm glad I'm not alone... I just wished I had the stalled builds that I've gotten rid of over the years (probably 100).☹
  7. I spent some time sorting out and picking my next Stalled projects for the BOYD Round 3 challenge. I have 7 or 8 choices to get back to work on. I know I have a problem but seriously, I am getting help for it. 😁
  8. Thanks Guys! I'll be switching gears and bringing out some Dead trucks for Round 3...
  9. I've finished another over 25 years Dead build... The 55 Chevy is finished in the style it was started in around the early 90's. Because it was missing a hood, my original plan was to build a Gasser. Due to popular vote I choose to go with the ProStreet look. Thanks to the loyalty of the members on here I was able to get a hood (thanks David). I kept it simple because of time constraints But it was still a challange because of life and my complicated brain... hope I did the 55 Chevy proud, Thanks for you guy's support... Now It's time to get Round 3 started!I Before... and After.
  10. I'm in on round 3 with my 55 Ford and 69 Chevelle maybe others as well. I made some progress today... Final assembly! I have to relocate the radiator support and find my headlight lenses then it's done! Our club challenge next month is "BOYD" so this thread has inspired guys who are in my local club too... (Not members here). after seeing my stalled builds get done it has got them wanting to get theirs done too! Gitter Done!
  11. Making last minute progress on the 55. I had to show the interior, I'm kinda happy with the outcome. I used a console from a 60 Impala. I couldn't find the shifter so I used welding wire from my mig welder, the shift ball is actually weld flux! Anyway I'm counting down with you guys, Finished pics to come soon.
  12. I had a fairly productive day today. This was the first time in about 10 days that I actually worked on anything, my family's been sick all week, just now gettin over it. I have a list of things to do before final assembly, Polish, BMF, Fab exhaust, Build complete interior, Finish Revell chassis, We'll see if I can finish by the weekend. I'm gonna be out of town next week a few days so it will be a challange to get it done by the deadline. I'll get back to it as soon as I can.
