  1. X2, I resize to 900 Pixels wide and keep the image below 100K.
  2. Since the pandemic began my wife and I have been doing jigsaw puzzles. Have found it to be a great way to relax and do something together.
  3. I went back through your photos and noted especially the way you painted the exhaust pipe, very realistic. So many models have bright exhaust pipes and yours are so accurate with the weathered look.
  4. I really like this. I have been so tempted to do something similar with a '57 T Bird that you might have pushed me over the edge. Thanks for posting.
  5. Oh yes! Very well done, Thanks for sharing it with us.
  6. The Mint and CMW Corvettes are the same size Randy though the photo does not appear that way.
  7. I was aware of the Mint 1958 Corvettes but was surprised to find a Classic Metal Works '58 in 1/24 scale. It turned out to be an affordable model with almost all the feature of the Mint cars. It was 1958 at Dusty Rhoads Chevrolet.
  8. I am really impressed with your build of this Mercedes. I have never seen one built before and appreciate your sharing it with us. The chassis pictures are most welcome with the detail Italeri included especially the rack and pinion steering. Well done Rich.
  9. Great looking Caddy Mr. Carlisle. Hard to believe how detailed it is in 1/64.
  10. Joan, that looks like a tuff wheel to find but I will keep my eyes open and let you know if I find anything. I did find pictures of the VISA competition version and some had 5 spoke mag wheels. I dove into the parts box and found these from a Bburago or Polistil Ferrari I think. These might work if you want to try them. Send me a PM with your mailing address and I can drop them in the mail to you.
  11. Barn find for sure. Well done.
  12. I am trying to get some momentum going on posting your Le Mans racers, here is another Le Mans winning Porsche. Ref. Wiki: The 911 GT1-98, despite being slower than the Toyota or the Mercedes in 1998, fulfilled Porsche's slim hopes, taking both first and second place overall thanks to reliability, giving Porsche its record-breaking 16th overall win at Le Mans, more than any other manufacturer in history. The model is a curbside Modelers 1/24 kit and another decal challenge with all those swirls.
  13. Great detail pictures Rex. Thank you very much for sharing them with us.
  14. The models you saw at Five Below are made by Braha. They have a range of models in both static and R/C and as you say are $5. I mentioned them last year when I found a Bentley Continental and a Hummer II. They are also sold at Ross if I remember correctly. (a 5
