  1. MPC 1980 Corvette

    Despite the challenges it looks like you nailed it. Very realistic.

    Thanks for the advice Randy. I agree with you on the hobby paints not being appropriate for buffing with a moto tool.
  3. Thanks for the suggestions Rex. The junker is certainly, um......unique.
  4. Yup, that is the same Mustang I bought at Walmart and sent you photos of this afternoon. Oh well, I will just keep it in the background in some photo shoot. Thanks Rex.
  5. Welly '65 GTO with Snake-Fu

    Well done and looks good. Creative solution to the drip rail too.
  6. Good call on fixes, thank you.
  7. I had to go to Rite Aid for a prescription refill and swung by the diecast rack, surprise. The only thing that looked interesting to me was the Maisto 1968 Camaro SS396 convertible. I was in a hurry so did not look at it very closely till got I home. My biggest complaints are the windshield, the clear insert makes the frame look way too wide. Wondering if I disassemble it I can heat and smash something more appropriate. The antenna is about the size of a walking cane unfortunately. Welly does a much better job with a wire inside the antenna. Typically with the die cast the wheels need to be toned done and detailed. But I did learn something new, Maisto showed me Chevrolet produced a flat 396 V8 for the Camaro, I thought only the Corvair had a flat engine.
  8. Porsche 928 S (1/24 scale, Fujimi)

    Very nice builds.
  9. Franklin Mint mercedes.

    Thanks Randy for sharing your experience. I have gotten several Franklin and Danbury diecasts via an estate sale but fortunately none in the condition you describe, or they weren't white. Yesterday by coincidence I sorted through all my moto tool supplies and found several cloth wheels so I may carefully give them a try.
  10. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    My dad had exactly that Buick wagon, color and everything. 455 cubic inch engine which he used to pull a trailer from Ohio to Florida every winter, 8 MPG.
  11. Wow X 3!! Sensory overload. Thanks for sharing Tim. Seeing the SVT Fords, didn't Bob Johnson of Monogram fame have a white SVT turbo Mustang?
  12. Franklin Mint mercedes.

    Nice addition to your collection.

    Right on Randy!
