  1. I really liked seeing the pic of Bob Clidinst... Do you have any idea what became of his long tern 1/8 scale Offy project?  He brought it to our club meeting (CCMC) one night and it was absolutely amazing... I sure miss that guy..

     

  2. Watchin this one closely.... My first car was also an Antique White ‘62 Galaxie 4 door sedan with a 352 and Ford O Matic with Blue vinyl interior. I drove that car about 4.5 years... I’ve owned a total of three over the years including a Chestnut convertible like my model.  Who did the resin body..?

  3. Thanks for all the kind words guys... These old cars are out there. Much like Mr. Obsessive, I prefer to build convertibles with the uptop. it give them so much more character. I’ve got about 10 other builds currently in the works with uptops and I’m planning some unique color combinations...

  4. This has been a very long term build that was finally finished on 8-30-2019. I got the car years ago as a stripped kit that had never had any fender skirts or other custom parts applied. The car had a great windshield header and the car had freshly redone chrome... I used a modified ‘63-‘64 Chevy uptop and a set of the new AMT Firestone Champion Deluxe tires. Otherwise, the kit is 100% box stock.

  5. There’s not one kit in the bunch that I’m interested in... If Revell wants to do something to kickstart sales theyg could do a few modified kits starting with a nice ‘57 Nomad, a convertible version of the ‘60 Impala, and a 1950 Ford panel delivery truck from the pickup.... I understand they are wanting to generate some quick revenue to try to establish profits quickly but they should realize that anyone who wanted a Foose version of their kits already has a plenty.. Its high time to bring back the original edition of the ‘65 Impala, ‘68 Firebird, ‘67 Charger, ect... Maybe put a few new parts in the ‘36 Ford, ‘39 Chevy kits...It will be interesting to see which tool they plan to use for the AAR Cuda kit since they’ve screwed up every attempt so far the do one right...

    The headlights for this kit are horribly under-sized...and worse yet they are chrome! I have read some threads on here about Bondic and Laser-bond. I figured I would give casting some copies a try with the Bondic kit I bought yesterday. I just used silly putty for the mold. I think they turned out great for 30 seconds worth of work!

    The first thing that popped into my small little mind was front turn signal lensrs for 1971-2 Chevelle....!!

     

  7. I bought my first Black Widow kit at Hobby Lobby sometime around March and it didn’t have a body at all.! They were nice enough to give me the refund even at a different store outlet. I waited a few months and bought another that was just fine.
