  1. 1969 Camaro RS convertible

    Great looking build, I am starting to replicate our 1:1 68 convertible. Are those the seats that came in the kit? What kit did that auto shifter come from from?

    this build idea is really cool. I like the idea for the seats. I have a 1:1 car I'm trying to replicate in scale, and can't find the right seats. this looks like the way to go. are you cutting out the middle of the stock seat, or just laying the horizontal striped part on top?
  3. 1953 Ford Country Squire

    I haven't worked on it in a while, kinda got stuck on some of the interior panels. I am trying to shape those panels to fit inside, and trying to make the whole thing fit together.
  4. Essex Wire Cobra

    This car was a pure white, right, not a off white or Wimbledon white?

    I picked up those wheels from Historic Racing Miniatures. They look great. I'll post a pic of them when I figure out what the issue is. From Gary and Rex's photos, they look like they should be magnesium, right? I think ill try mixing a little black in with some aluminum and see if that looks right.

    So I'm back to not being able to post pictures again. It seems they work if they are 2.0 mb or smaller, but not any larger than that. Is there a way to make them smaller?
  7. Essex Wire Cobra

    Wow, thanks for the reference pics, guys. I can tell from Gary's picture that the car did have a wood wheel, and the red knockoffs from Rex's. Maxx, I'll check out those wheels. JC, I looked through your #6 427 build for some ideas yesterday. That car turned out very nice.

    I am struggling to upload photos now. I am dragging them into the spot, it starts downloading, and then says "upload failed." Any ideas?
  9. Essex Wire Cobra

    I started this with the hope that it will be a quick build. Time will tell. Does anyone know if this car had a black (carpeted) interior, or a stripped down aluminum one? Also, which valve covers would it have? Most pictures of competition cars show them with the chrome ones, but this kit comes with the finned aluminum ones. I can't find any good pictures of this car from back in the day. There are pictures of the car in its current iteration, but it seems to have modern changes and equipment.
  10. Fairlane 427 stock w/ some detail

    I used phone wire. I was looking for it to take a picture but couldn't find it for some reason.
  11. I like these trucks. This is a very cool choice for a project.
