  1. Here I go again

    Looking forward to seeing more.
  2. AMC Pacer Wagon, AMT 1:25

    Nic work. I build this kit a while back. I had fun with it.
  3. Krylon Premium Original Chrome

  4. 57 ford salt flat racer

    Looks good. But missing the chrome trim.
  5. Fusion Hex Beads

    That's the problem. I've found them and used them but the corners are always rounded and don't look quite right.
  6. If I'm not mistaken it comes with two front suspensions, stock and tubular.
  7. This is the review of that kit when it came out. Maybe you can find the info you need there.
  8. Two Lane Blacktop 55 scoop & licence plates ?

    Not that I've ever heard of. Frankly that's something most of us would scratch build. As for the licence plates. Reduce this image, print it out on photo paper, cut it out and add to model.
  9. 1949 Ford - sectioned with a fade

    Very nicely done. Very glad you didn't chop the top and turn it into something undrivable if it was 1:1.
  10. Revell 49 Merc part

    Dennis, just FYI, these are just chrome pieces. The lenses have to be painted in.
  11. Willys Jeep Twin-Turbo Dragster

    Very cool. Terrificly clean work.
  12. Putting the Foose Chassis under a '50 Ford...

    I've been kicking around a similar idea for a while as the Foose chassis and drivetrain would lend itself for an autocross vehicle very well. Please let us know how that works out for you.
  13. Packing models

    I quite agree. If you put models in a checked bag, that will not be models when they arrive. Find a local, ship your stuff to him with no more than two models per box.
  14. Stacked Workbench

    "Fed up with" and "staying focused" are the two key elements for me from your statement. I have found that I get less fed up and stay focused better when I put less customization and fabrication into the model. That's where I get into the most trouble. I hit a design issue, a fitment issue that came out of knowhere, or a "that doesn't look like it did in my head" issue. All those will end up back on the shelf for years sometimes. If I can come up with an idea that inspires that doesn't require a lot of re-engineering, I am much more successful in my modeling. Choosing the right kits plays a big part in that too. Some might think of that as a cowards way out, but to me it's a choice between something under glass and not in a box.
  15. '65 Chevelle Z16 (396) Drag Car Ideas

    Yeah, it's a '64 but you get the idea.
