  1. I wanna go so bad , maybe next week some time. I remember all of this. Mike
  2. Thanks so much Ray. I painted the rear wheels this afternoon and will un-tape them soon. Mike
  3. Thanks Gary. The rear wheel molding is pretty sad on the outer edge and I have a small sand blaster so I have been stripping a lot of chrome in favor of paint. Mike
  4. Thanks Gary. Keeping me off the streets. Mike
  5. I got this and it is way out of my wheelhouse but having fun with it. I am planning on using the body and as you can see the crank mounted blower. The tubes you see on the blower will extend out past the body where the scoop will be located. Not very good on instructions but most of the fit is pretty good. Mike
  6. Thanks so much. I just had to build it because I did years ago. Thanks, Mike
  7. I am pretty surprised at all the comments on why we do what we do and all the thoughts we have. I buy my kits simply for the nostalgia and just happen to build a few along the way. Thanks to everyone. Mike
  8. Thanks very much Hector. I enjoyed it. Mike
  9. That 67 Ford was always another of my favorite body styles. Mike
  10. Oh the glue tube high and sitting at the corner desk in my bedroom for hours on end , in my own racecar world. Mike
  11. Gerry , I hope you do what ever you like and all goes well. These hobbies should be fun and if they start to cause stress , it is time for a change. Thanks , Mike
  12. I would say that may be a good guess for most of us! LOL
  13. We have similar taste's and I used to work for AMC and looking to get one of the Matador kits. Mike
  14. We own a model train shop and I tell guys all the time "it is not about how many we have or the money we have or the talent we may have. It is DO WE HAVE FUN " Yes we do.
  15. My wife understands what I do and that is , what I am buying now is simply there to remind me of the thousands of hours I spent, as a teenager, building models. I may never build them. I don't care. All I need to do is simply go look at them and in them and I am 17 again. They are , for me , my time machine. I am so glad that Round 2 and others have brought so many back to me to re-live. Mike
  16. I am actually sorry I posted this. Sorry to everyone.
  17. I am not trying to twist anyone's arm here. If you don't want to then don't and why post here at all? Just ask'in Mike
