  1. He designed the grill and hood for me, I have the first prototype
  2. Crosley

    Had you seen these on E-Bay? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Batto-Crosley-1-25-Resin-Body-Decal-Sheet-from-Fremont-Racing-Specialties/323207032257?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D44040%26meid%3D93f87e4cadac4c42acd63b78e9fb3bbb%26pid%3D100011%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D323068531863%26itm%3D323207032257&_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850 Resin Crosley, might save some time scratch building. Looks decent.
  3. Detroit Diesel Question

    Thanks, these are great pictures, I am also doing a Green Leaker. The internet only gets you so far, this is great. BTW, I have had to do a tune up on one of these, what a pain. Adjusting the rack as seen is Fig 2 is not a lot of fun.
  4. Trabant .

    I have been wanting to do one of these, this one looks fantastic. Great job! Its too bad this happy looking car represents such an un-happy era for so many people.
  5. 25 Oldsmobile Roadster

    I like what your doing, keep it up. Is this kit currently available? What is the kit #? I can see lots of possibilities from this.
  6. This is funny to me, putting a super charger on a 32hp Renault Dauphine. These were rated as one of the worst cars ever built, now lets throw a super charger on it and see how fast we can blow it up or kill ourselves from the poor handling. Good stuff.
  7. I have a few models I am working on that either have no brake booster/master cyl or the one that is there is molded in and is total garbage. Same thing with other underhood details. Does anyone make this kind of stuff in resin or plastic?
  8. New "material" for carpeting?

    I love that this also helps to make the pin marks go away. They always put them in the corners where I can't get in to sand them out, and if you do, you loose the carpet detail.
  9. I love this, great job. Builds like this speak to me much more than a 197X Muscle car with shiny paint and fancy rims. Very cool build. I have owned trucks that look just like this. My dad even had a primer red 1968 4 door with a green and white bed. Great old trucks.
  10. The parts were printed by Shapeways, unless your father is Bill Gates, you won't be buying one of these 3D printers. Check out their web page, the 3D printers they use are the Million Dollar variety. You can buy small ones from Home Depot and other places, but the quality is poor at best. Only good for stuff that is larger with little to no details.
  11. Detroit Diesel Question

    They are internal. The injectors sit inside the heads under the valve covers, the fuel line is inside the head, as well as the fuel rail that actuates them. Kind of like the Ford Power Stroke, you see no lines, they are internal to the head.
  12. Thornbird 4x4 tires

    I am sure I would like a set. In the real world, they look nice but suck off road, on a model, they would look great.
  13. 1950 Alfa Romeo Alfetta

    I think that you are doing great. We all start somewhere and we get better the more we do. I look at some of the builds here and think, I can't do anything like that, but I have to remember that I do this for fun. As long as I enjoy it, learn from it, its all good. Some of the builds I see on here, the guy doing it probably have many many years of building, lots of cool tools, and spend ridicules hours on the builds. When it goes beyond the fun, and you start to compare your work to others and it does not live up to unreal expectations, the fun is gone. Just keep doing what you are doing, have fun. Thats what its about.
  14. 1959 "Wild Cad" Custom

    I love the under truck lid structure, very nice. I need to do this to a hood I have.
  15. Let's see some police cars

    Right or wrong on the Hub caps, that thing is sweet.
