    Whoa, back up a few feet here, just how did you do the foam on the seats, that looks awesome...and again, you sure you never saw my Road Runner?

    You're a big tease Chuck, I was hoping for shiny, but your weathering looks so good I don't care...but the next slammed one you do has to be showroom quality!

    If this baby was green, I'd swear it was a clone of my old 1:1 '71 Road Runner, the rusty roof looks just like mine did under that nasty green vinyl top!

    My God Ira, this looks like it should have been a kit available in the 70's, it would have fit in perfectly with the Zingers! Awesome work, simply awesome!

    Joe, what size drill bit did you use for the exhaust tips? I always just trim them with an X-Acto blade myself, your method is much cleaner!

    I love the look of the tail light panel, nice and clean. The grille looks great, not sold on the lower valence myself, but it's your baby, not mine...it may look great once it's actually on the car, so I'm probably dead wrong!

    Man, that looks great James!

    Bright colors, lots of detailing, yeah, I'm gonna watch this one for sure!

    This should be a killer build John, where are you getting the '68 grille and tail light panel from?

    Thanks Marc, I hope to get some completed pictures this weekend!

    Hate hearing that the paint is giving you fits, but you'll get it right!

    I wish Moebius would tool up a '71-'74 Javelin kit, I can promise I would buy as many as I could get my hands on before the wife killed me!

    Thanks Dave, it was a fight, but I beat it into submission!
    OK, it's pretty much done, just the lower radiator hose to install, and it'll be finished. The Alclad on the bumpers didn't come out as shiny as I'd like, but it looks good with the Candy Silver upper section, so I'll take it. Once the lower hose gets glued in place, I'll give the truck and boat a good clean-up and snap some outside pics for the Showroom. Thanks to everyone who followed along, and Toney, I hope you like it!

    I had to remove the license plate and glue it back on a bit higher, since it still hit the bumper, that's why the piece of styrene is there, gotta keep it straight while the glue dries!




    I got some new North Carolina license plates from Best Model Car parts, put one on the truck (Much better!), and made up some tail lights for the boat, and added a license plate to it, now it's 100% completed! I'll get some pics up Under Glass soon, thanks for following along!

    Great idea Charles, I can see myself using that app to death!
