  1. 1/18 hot rod style headlights

    In millimeters, what would be the diameter of the light you are looking for? The reason I ask, is that many of the 1/24 Monogram Duesenbergs, Packards and Mercedes have what we would consider oversized headlights. Perhaps they would be big enough to pass for a hot rod headlight in 1/18? Just an idea.
  2. 67 GTO

    This kit is available through Model Roundup. They ship worldwide. Good luck. https://www.modelroundup.com/product-p/mpc-r2-710.htm
  3. best beginner amt truck model

    And just for the sake of conversation, why are you asking about AMT specifically? However to answer your question. This '34 has been re-released recently. It's a solid kit that goes together without much fuss.
  4. What Pleased You Today!

    Congrats Ray. I've a feeling it's going to be a girl for my son and fiance.
  5. 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic

    Very nice build. If the wheels are off center, it's not noticable from the photos. That would probably create glut of Challenger kits with no engine.
  6. What Pleased You Today!

    Thanks everyone. I'm pretty excited. I gotta agree. A big ol fat tear at the end for sure. I'm gonna miss that show. It never got lame.
  7. Gee Rich , we would never had guessed that! I wouldn't argue with any answer you guys have posted. There have been so many iconic cars over the decades. I could never pick a favorite year.
  8. Also please be safe. Find some sort of safety guard for a cutting wheel.
  9. What Pleased You Today!

    I found out last night that, in December, I'm gonna be a grandfather. I still don't have my head fully wrapped around it, because I swear my son was just eight a few weeks ago and suddenly he's a 26 year old man. It's a mixture of joy and terror.
  10. Paint stripping discovery?

    Rob. I'm sure we'd all like to see your method in a brief tutorial perhaps? Jeff. Duplicolor lacquers are very tough stuff. 90% isopropyl alcohol does work. I recommend though, you use the old Super Clean degreaser BUT first sand through to the primer in a half a dozen spots on the body. Let the chemical attack the primer. After a week or so, the lacquer should slough off like a snake skin.
  11. That's terrific man. I really like it. Excellent work.
  12. Discord for models

    I've heard of discord in gaming circles, but I've never been involved very much. Is it voice chat where you need a headset?
  13. Model A Phaeton TROG Car Is Finished PIX

    Outstanding work Tom. I've been kicking around a TRoG build with the AMT '32 Chrysler, that I'm going to start soon.
  14. Well it was fun while it lasted

    Jacob, I'm right there with ya. I have a full time job and a 10 acre homestead. There is a never ending honey-do list.
  15. This is what stupid looks like

    Yes. Apparently he skipped physics class. Also he is likely the first person hit by a car that wasn't moving horizontally.
