    The show and contest were a few weeks ago but I finally have the time to post some pictures from the show. The show went really well with a good crowd through all day, we had about 198 models in the contest and almost 300 people through the doors! Here are some pics of the vendors and contest tables. I am going to send the photos of the individual models into the magazines then I may post some more here!

    I had not checked this post for awhile, thanks for posting the pictures of your drawings and the concept drawings! I really like the 66/67 Nova conversion, I think that could be done in model form using a Flintstone sedan delivery maybe?

    I fanally got some paint on this! The interior is just about finished. I need to get some clear on it and polishing to get the shine up! What do you guys think of the color combo?
    I wanted something that looked like it was done in the late 60's. Does anyone know of a source for outside door handles without buying another kit?
    If all else fails I guess I could try and cast some up.

    The tables are almost sold out so we should have lots of stuff to look at and buy!! I will be posting some photos after the show also.

    We are going to raffle off a vintage kit at the show! We have done this the past 3 shows. This years kit is a sealed Johan 1964 Dodge drag car, "Recharged" on the box!

    Thanks Jeff! We are hoping the hall works out well also. We have the 2018 show booked for Castle Shannon fire hall. I will be putting info
    up as soon as this years show is over.

    Looking for parts
    Looking for a 1970 AMT Monte Carlo rear bumper from promo or kit. Also looking for glass from a 1963 Chevy Nova, the altered wheel base would be fine. Thanks!

  12. fordf-100 added a post in a topic My version of Chevys should be 1963 ElCamino!   

    Love the old Aurora stuff! Always looking for cars! I did some work on my El Camino project, I rescribed the door lines and fitted a back window.
    I used the Molotow chrome pen to re-do the front end chrome. I am going to paint the grille stainless with a black wash, I used the pen on the bumper and the upper 
    grille surround and around the headlights. Not sure if I should drill out the lights and replace with clear lenses, would rather try and "clear" over them. Any ideas?
    Also its amazing how a close up photo with a phone camera makes by body work look like BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH!

    Here is a copy of the show flyer for 2017 showing our classes and our special theme class "IMPORTS". This could be anything from a tuner to factory stockto a drag car
    as long as its an import. This would include British, European, Japanese Etc.....
