  1. I found this picture with a quick Google search.
  2. That looks really good. Would the Imex '58 Cadillac boot fit?
  3. That's wicked cool! Mini vans have a lot more potential than most people think. I built a pro touring style one a while back.
  4. I really like that color combo.
  5. I'm excited to see McNally back and I love the 2nd gen Escalade. I just happened to pick up 2 copies of this kit last week. I checked the box, and sure enough it says molded in orange. I opened one of them and it's molded in white, just like your kit. I guess using the ESV on the box art wasn't the only mistake.
  6. 1969 Cadillac DeVille Convertible

    Nice! We need more Cadillacs around here.
  7. Slambo Countach - NeoRetro Style Curbside

    That's just cool.
  8. I had an idea for a 55 Chevy truck build and after checking my stash, I realized I had almost everything I would need, so I went ahead and got started. I started by cutting out the inner fenders for wheel clearance, I want this one to lay rocker. I then added new inner fenders made out of sheet plastic. With the wheel/tire combo I'm using ill need as much clearance as I can get. I had an extra set of rear fenders, so I glued each set together to get some extra width. Then I cut out one side of each so i could have extra wide fenders. More next time.
  9. I started on the frame. I'm going to try to make a buck so I can heat up the square stock and curve it over the axle, we'll see how that works out. I still have quite a bit of body work to do, but I got the first coat of primer on and I got the wheels and tires painted. The rear wheels/tires are still a little too tall so I might have to do some creative sanding to get them to fit. I'm not sure which grill I want to use, so I went ahead and prepped them both. I got started on the interior. The interior is definitely the weak point in this kit, hopefully I can think of something to add more detail. And I've narrowed it down to 1 of these 3 colors. More next time.
  10. I made this with a resin Jimmy Flintstone body and a Revell STS-V donor kit and used some wheels that are a little less cartoonish.
  11. I just moved to Utah a couple months ago and I would really like to attend the GSL, but I can't figure out where it will be. The only address I'm seeing on the website is for the museum, is it at the museum?
  12. That's real nice. The coyote looks right at home.
  13. 1957 Chevy convertible

    That's wicked nice!
  14. '65 Lincoln Continental

    I had this one in my stash for about 15 years. I lowered it and used white walls out of my parts box. I couldn't get the hood to shut with the engine in, so I took out the engine and glued the hood shut.
  15. '65 Lincoln Continental

    Thanks, it's the AMT '65 Lincoln Continental 3 in 1 kit.
  16. '65 Lincoln Continental

    Thanks, I was going to paint it black, but I changed my mind at the last minute.
  17. Base Box Caprice Conversions

    Those look great!
  18. '47 Chevy Fleetmaster

    I just finished up this Galaxy '47 Fleetmaster. I used the lowered suspension and the custom engine parts. The paint is Rustoleum Harbor blue with a flat clear coat.
  19. '47 Chevy Fleetmaster

    Thanks. A good friend of mine built 1 of the 3 pre-production kits, I had to get his advice on getting the hood and fenders lined up.
  20. '47 Chevy Fleetmaster

    Thanks. I really like rustoleum paint, it lays down smooth. Some people don't like it, but it works well for me.
  21. Chevy business coupe avail?

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-25-51-chevy-2-door-coupe-resin-body/163515139466?hash=item261243058a:g:uGUAAOSwaEdcUR82 I just ran across this guy selling them on eBay. He also has a 4 door and I just ordered the '52 conversion kit.
  22. '69 Cadillac Sedan de Ville

    Outstanding! I like the colors.
