    Love seeing classic MOPARs and especially any Daytonas or Superbirds. Nice job on this, Randy.

    You really nailed it, Bill. Makes me feel like I'm back in my little hometown with the AMC dealer. Fantastic attention to detail, especially the dash and tach.

    Whoa! Seriously? I'm not at all familiar with the kit. Man, if that's box stock it's MOST impressive. Not sure why, but when I looked at the photos I just assumed it was a real custom piece. OK, so I'm even MORE impressed now.  (Can you tell I'm real new to the hobby again?)

    Very nicely done! And yeah, what did you use on those whitewalls? They look great.

    Great job. I can never see too many Daytonas or Superbirds.

    Beautiful build, Dave.

    I'm definitely with you on that one, Bill. Just got one of those calls last night, and on my CELL PHONE. Yeah, the fella says, learn how to effortlessly make $10,000 a week. Sure, buddy. And the "Do Not Call List" thing is pretty much a joke and the telemarketers KNOW that.

    Yeah, your squirrels are what I call white squirrels. What we have here are albinos, pink eyes and all. As strange as it may be, there are dozens and dozens of them here. You see them everywhere. I've got one in my backyard. He visits almost daily. But they are, in fact, all albinos. Really strange to have any mammal continue to produce generation after generation of more albinos. Yeah, ours are white, but not the way I think. I consider your kind to really be white. Oh, well.

    Don't know for sure, but have you tried Scale Equipment LTD? They have several different sizes of tires and also have whitewall decals. Maybe that would work for you. Links below to their 'Tires' page and another link to tire dimension chart.

    Seat decals from the Revell '58 Impala
    OK, guys. After a year of reading, researching, and practicing techniques, I'm actually starting on my first build since I was a kid. Over the past year I've changed my mind several times as to which kit I would build first. I ended up with three of the AMT/ERTL '58 Chevy Impala Couple kits. I bought two sealed kits and a friend gave me a kit leftover form his son who has married and left home. The boy brush painted the interior tub and part of the body so I'm going to get the opportunity to try stripping paint as well as getting started on my first build.
    Steve G. suggested I try and locate a decal sheet from the Revell '58 Impala for the tri-color seats in the car. I'm not sure I want to attempt that much painted detail on my first build and Steve was aware of the decal for the seats in the Revell kit.
    I don't actually even need to whole decal sheet. All I need is the seat decal. I'm more than happy to purchase and/or pay shipping cost since I don't have any trading material as of yet. Send me a message if you can help.

    Exceptional result from a snap kit. I happen to have a '63 Vette snap kit. Yours gives me inspiration, for sure.

    Nice job! Love to see good looking MOPARs.
  15. smhardesty added a post in a topic What Irked You Today?   

    Toothbrushes! Yeah, something as simple as a toothbrush has me irked right now. I just got a gallon of SuperClean and a big pan with tight fitting lid to remove paint from a couple of kits I have in my stash. I asked my wife to pick up a regular, medium hard, straight bristle toothbrush. They apparently don't exist! She's been to 5 different stores looking for one, but none to be found. You can buy pretty much every configuration of curved handled, angled brush, super duper, etc, etc, brush you want, but not a straight handled, straight bristled, plain old toothbrush! I finally found a couple of different denture brushes that should be just fine for use with the cleaner. Who would have thought?
