  1. FWIW here are the trailers I have and aren't sure which kits they came from. At least one came from the 1960 Ford pickup kit but without the sides. The black single axle is shorter than the red dual axle which has a tool box and tire pole added. The blue one is a modified dual axle made to look like an English Don Parker trailer (the cycle fenders are from '32 Ford 3 in 1 kits) and the gray one is the MPC Mako Shark version of a tilt trailer which was identified in a previous thread.
  2. Thanks Casey, that is exactly the one I have.
  3. Oh my those are really tempting.
  4. Hooper & Co Diorama

    David, One of the posters here awhile back showed how he had taken a photograph of a garage building to a local fast print sign shop and had them blow it up and print it to a scale size for his diorama. That got me thinking about doing the same thing with a photo of the Dunlop bridge at Le Mans, but haven't done it yet. Anyway, I thought it might be a way to get at least some urban background for either side of Hooper & Company. Gary
  5. Ellen, I like seeing your historical buildings and having the background history on them. I will be following.
  6. Hooper & Co Diorama

    I like the eye level shots the best. I think the idea of outdoor shots will add a lot to your scene, however, with your diorama being in an urban setting I am guessing it will be a challenge to find the right spot.
  7. Randy, please don't cover this up with a body or at a maximum removeable panels.
  8. Bugatti T 50 resurrection: Thread deleted mistakenly

    Thank you for the update and please keep them coming. My experience with a Pocher was limited to the restoration of a Rolls Royce but that was a challenge.

    Yup, we have been singing the praises of this model. I keep finding nice little features every time I pick it up. Glad you were able to find one.
  10. Thank you gentlemen for your insight.
  11. My mistake Tom, you should see the photo now.
  12. I received this single axle tilt trailer in a box with other things. It has a nice dolly wheel and Corvette finned aluminum wheels but I doubt they are original. Does anyone recognize it and know what kit it came in? Thanks Gary
  13. Ford Model T 1/16 scale by Revell

    I am very impressed with what you have done with this T. Looking forward to seeing more.
  14. Aston Martin DBS (Rastar 1/10)

    X2 Until I saw the last photos I did not believe it was a model. Great work.

    Not a gasser with a 6-71 sticking through the bonnet.
