      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    Great! I happen to have two new cans of that primer.

    An exceptional box stock build. Very nice!

    Very nicely done! Excellence detailing under-hood. A great looking MOPAR.

    A very neat & clean build. I don't think the tail lights look too bad. Remember, they were in reality a "little naked”.
    The paint looks very nice. I'm preparing to do a car in Tamiya's "Pearl White". What did you use as a primer? I'm still trying what to shoot under my Pearl White to give the best result.

    Gotta love those little cars. The Cragars look nice on there.

    The fact is that years ago if you wanted real, true, high quality photos you pretty much had to learn quite a bit about photography and invest in a really good camera, along with a lot of accessories. Today there are dozens of cameras available under a hundred bucks that can take really outstanding photos. And yes, although I hate to admit it, lots of the new phones take pretty good photos too.

    Ditto.

    I understand that perfectly! I still have several kits on my "want list" and they are still on there for just that reason. I don't want to rip anybody off, just enjoy finding bargains.

    Sorry to read about the limited production. That does nothing for the hobby and nothing for the manufacturer's reputation.

    Regardless of the bickering, I'm pleased as punch to see the Deuce gasser, and the Golden Commandos & California Flash kits. I'll eventually have a minimum of one each and I for certain see a Deuce gasser as well as a street freak build.
    Many thanks to Tim Boyd for sharing this info. Maybe some of you with nothing more to do than bicker might consider showing Tim a little well deserved appreciation.
    I just can't believe some of you choose to bicker on a thread like this or choose to criticize the new releases before you get your hands on a finished product. Yeah, I'm new to the hobby and I probably know less about this hobby and/or the kits than just about all of you, but I know enough to appreciate Tim's effort and I know I'll wait until these kits are finished and in the hands of builders before I pass judgement.
    Sorry. Another of my little rants. Just felt it needed said.

    One thing to keep in mind when trying to use "Landscape" and then zooming in is that you need plenty of light. The best way to provide light without getting bright spots on the model is to place the model on a table in the corner of the room, then shine lights on the walls behind the model, not directly on it.

    A whole lot of very impressive work. Nice job!
  14. smhardesty added a post in a topic 1960 Mercury Comet Restoration   

    Looking good.

    This build raises questions. Like, "Why not?" and "What if?"
    Keep those photos coming. This could be sweet.
