  1. The Cuda hemi will probably look better in the Engine bay, as it is 1:24 scale as well. I like the Revell 1:25 street hemi (GTX, Coronet) for the best detail, but it might look too small. Haven't built a Moebius hemi yet.
  2. Well done! Awesome work on the conversion. The paint is gorgeous.
  3. Wow! They are all stunning! That crazy pickup with the bike in back intrigues me. Do you have WIP pictures of it?
  4. here's the air cleaner. It has a couple of air bubbles but they can be filled.
  5. I have casted the air cleaner in resin. I'll get you a pic when I get a chance.
  6. Well done! I like that you put the emblem from the 1:1 car in the photo too. Nice touch!
  7. Don't shoot, but I wouldn't do a thing to it. It's near mint except for the missing tail lights. They're only original once.
  8. XL 350 one-lunger. I can't remember what year. It would be way cool to build it in 1:25 scale though.
  9. Here's a picture of a picture of the 1:1 car. Check out the unique half vinyl top and the white side molding. That's me trying to get the Honda started.
  10. This one is going to be a recreation of my first car. It was a 72 Chevelle, non-SS, non-Malibu, with a 307-2bbl engine which had a whopping 130 hp. It was Hugger Orange with a white vinyl top. Wish I still had it! I started with a glue-bomb AMT kit. Both a-pillars were broken. Here is the progress after making them from evergreen strips. I removed the wheel molding chrome. It will still need a little filling to get them right. The car had a flat hood. I've never seen on a 1/25 kit, so I'm making one. Here you can see the inserts from the bottom. And progress from the top: Lastly, it had the base model dash, not the SS gauge cluster. Still working through this. I'm thinking gauge decals from a Nova or Impala would be pretty close. Rallye wheels and a small-block and I'm there!
  11. Super clean and sharp build. Very realistic.
  12. Excellent job. The paint looks awesome!
  13. Nice work as always! How in the world do you build these beautiful one of a kind models so quickly?
  14. I have been cutting up a piece of tinsel from the Christmas tree. Then I glue on a small piece of guitar string for the screw. It works great.
