  1. I bought 8(?) kits &/or transkits when they announced their closing with no thought of selling them. I then had a chance to buy any leftover stuff but figured I spent enough already even though they had some other kits I would like to have. After seeing these kits sell for so much I wish I had! I have only started 2 of their kits, both on th back burner for now. These are the 1st resin kits I’ve worked with with the exception of a somewhat clunky LFC Dodge trans kit that I purchased decades ago. (It remains mostly unstarted. It took a real effort just to get the interior to fit into the cab & even then there will be fit issues with the frame 😕 )
  2. It sucks when a kit doesn’t go together the way it should. You would think the manufacturers would correct these errors before putting them on the shelves or at least before the 1st reissue! However, I thought you had planned to build it like your friend’s, without a spoiler (if that helps... 😁).
  3. Uh, I got paint ordered. Desert rose and Dover white. Correct colors for the’56 Chrysler...
  4. Looks great! You have time to submit & complete another project!?!
  5. As Stacy & Tom are continuing with they’re builds I will submit mine, a Revell/AMT ‘56 Chrysler New Yorker St. Regis. I will attempt to make this-look like this-my Dad’s ‘56. I have started another along with it as some of the pictures show. (It will be a mild custom) Only planning to get the one done but the other may get completed in the process. I don’t know why there is a quarum of 8 needed for a round to be official but hopefully another will join in. Maybe we will complete the first unofficial round! Now off to find desert rose paint!
  6. Always thought these cars were cool! Nice job!
  7. I can see Jack Benny cruising Rodeo Drive now!
  8. Nice looking ride. The fenders are quite different. Looks like they’d make good surf boards! 😃🏄🏻‍♀️🏄🏻‍♂️
  9. That’s different! Nice job!
  10. 😁 Maybe Snake meant July 31? You are on the current list.
  11. Snake, I don't see your name on the list or don't you count you? Or you aren't participating this round?
