  1. Great to see this one and tbill's version finished at the same time!

    Could you please give us a shot of the chassis? tbill didn't mention any trouble with the rear axle and I'd like to compare them.

    It's tough to see. Hopefully it gives enough to compare.

  2. Thanks for the compliments guys! It encourages me to take it to higher levels of building. 

    Beautiful builds. Only six months you say ?

    Never built a model before. However, I do have experience working in my family's auto body shop, so cars are not new to me. It's much different working with models though which gives me a lot respect for you guys producing such beautiful pieces. It's an art just like building (or rebuilding) 1:1 cars.


  3. The swip you are thinking of was a thin aluminum sheet that had a gold anodized finish on the 1:1 car. The kits decal sheet provides a decal but it isn't very accurate. Bruce did a great job in replicating the OEM look and it might be nice if he could share with use how he did that. I have tried Gold Bare-Metal foil, but it is on the thick side. I have also foiled the area and then painted it with Tamiya clear orange paint and got close.

    Very interesting, thanks for filling me in. On the gasser version I just built the decal provided was black. I didn't care for it either and painted it purple in an effort to mimic the color of the stripes I used.


  4. Great looking builds. Got to love the Hudson and the unusual tutone '57 Ford wagon.  

    I may have only noticed because I just did one, but the Ford is actually a tri-tone. There's a swipe of yellow/beige between the moldings. A very nice touch!

    I'd point out the colors on the Delage also but that might take away from your other color selections.

    Very cool 😎 start to finish. 


  5.  

    Well since I only started modeling in late June I only have 6 months of work to show. For that I have five completed models. I have two more I could have rushed to completion but they would have had what I consider to be subpar paint jobs, so they'll wait until January.

  6. Seriously dude you gotta relax and give yourself a break. It's only been a week you need to give body tissue time repair itself. Your brain being foggy is from pain medication, it'll cause that and memory problems. You need this medication right now. If you're still on pain meds in six months then worry about addiction. Unless you've had major problems with addiction this shouldn't be worth worrying about.  The panic attacks should subside soon, I wouldn't be too worried about them either.

    The foot and calf swelling is something to be concerned about. Do they have inflatable compression boots on your legs? Your body needs help getting that blood and fluid back up to your heart and circulating. That's what I'd be asking of your doctor and home health care nurse.

    I know you'll start feeling better soon! Take care.


  7. Looks great! Great paint and interior. Did you do a WIP on this? If not, I have three questions. One, how did you do the roof? Two, how did you do the interior? And three, what did you use for chrome?


  8. Rock/Classic Rock for me, but if I had to "outside the box" I'd go with Little Big Town.

    It's a good song! I really like the theme. When I go I want to be super high on mushrooms 🍄.

    This vid was filmed at Red Rocks Ampitheater. If you love live music you MUST see a show here. Most beautiful, best sounding venue I've ever experienced (and that's with about 350 live shows under my belt).
