  1. Kaaren Lee (St.Elmo's Fire) as Jessie... pretty much never heard from again and Kate Vernon (still acting today)as Jessie's sister Melissa. Typical 80’s Movie story line...the main characters (the underdogs) take on a bunch of local bullies, get cheered on by the entire town, win the girl; Everyone lives happily ever after... Well... almost I'd never heard of it until It was on Turner Classic Movies the other night... I like 70's/ 80's movies for the cars before they were really old.
  2. This is Random but I figured I'd ask if anyone has seen this film since we're kinda on the topic. "Roadhouse" starring Willam Defoe & Judge Reinhold from 1984. It was filmed in 82 and redistributed with another title. It's been re-titled a few times "Two Guys & A Car","Highway 66" and "Roadhouse 66" Total car movie... it's on YouTube if anyone is interested, it has some cool cars in it too...
  3. So are you declaring the Charger as your entry? That looks great and if so, I'll add you to the Roster... I'm very proud to say that will make 30 builds on the Roster so far folks and that's a great amount of participants for this year's running... I hope to see em all at the finish line too!
  4. The best designers are the builders themselves... I used to hear my Vocational teacher (Auto body Tech) say "The people who make it don't use it". I think that's true but there was only so much you could do. The way technology is advancing, 3d printing and Model companies thoroughly researching the subject, the community would benefit from a new tool 69 Chevy truck. I've invisioned a modern tool of a 76 Nova SS for many years. I would mold it with optional bumper impact strips (which is an option on the real car). I would also mold the grill open and multi-peice Rally wheels (separate trim rings and centers). Anyways, that's my dream kit... This is a cool project for an Awesome Chevy Truck, looking forward to seeing it come together...
  5. The body vents came out nice and the doors too...
  6. I finally took the chance on drilling the column out once I got the brand new interior from a friend. I drilled it out from the back end and it actually turned out nice... I may used the new dash and interior tub just because it's unglued and fresh. The original tub was brush painted gray with red seats and I couldn't get the paint to budge.
  7. I have a set of these that were cast also... More than a few AMT/MPC kits came with these wheels so when I first seen them my question was why cast them? when they're really not that rare. It's cool that someone did cast them and I picked them up because they're not plated and it hit me that I could paint them black or maybe body color for a future project. I thought I would round up 4 Spiders from the back of the Monogram 69 Camaro. The 1/24th scale wheels on the Truck would give it more of an aggressive stance.

  9. I like seeing unconventional raw materials being used on models. It reminds me of the early days of modeling... we used whatever we could to get the point across.
  10. I was about to say that too... I thought more folks would be interested. It's not really a leap of faith, your getting what you give accentually... For me the mystery and suspense of what it will become is the appeal.
  11. Wow that's pretty! And I think 4X4 with duel wheels is the way to go!
  12. This reminds me of the car from 11.22.63 This one is a 58 Sunliner, so there's some differences between the Fairlane but I wonder if anyone does a kit of this... I'd like to build the convertible. https://www.imcdb.org/v887962.html
  13. Gonna look sweet with a Gloss Black paint job it already looks like the movie truck by the way it's sitting... This is the Truck I want when The apocalypse happens, Nothing would stop this beast! My favorite scene is when they blow up the tanker... quick fact... before production, originally Louise's car was 65 Impala...but somehow it wound up being the 66 T-bird.
