  1. 1/25 AMT '65 Chevelle Surf Wagon

    I'm really looking forward to seeing the decals. I've built a surf wagon in that past that really could use a finishing touch.
  2. Display case ideas - for built ins or wall mounted

    Hmm. 3ftx3ft, five shelves. That will hold about 20 models. So $378 divided by 20 equals $18.90 per model. Plus the higher you go, the less you can see the models. Here's my recommendation. https://www.containerstore.com/s/race-car-display-cube/d?q=display cases&productId=10001594 Nine dollars each with free shipping for orders $49 dollars or more. These cases are awesome, the two halves fit perfectly and look seamless when joined. Very clear 360 and smooth. Stack perfectly. 10-1/4" wide x 5" deep x 4" high. You could line the shelf with these stacked two high. I have about ten of these and I love them. I'd be happy to take some photos if you'd like.
  3. Most beautiful planes of all time...

    The B-1 always stuck me as a very simple yet elegant design. It's performance is pretty unique too. When the those wings sweep back it's capable of some pretty impressive manuevering for something so large. I got an up close and personal view when I was very briefly stationed at McConnell AFB in Wichita.
  4. Formula1 Hot Rod

    I like it! Very cool work!. A curbside or will you be shoehorning an engine in there somewhere?
  5. Plastered

    During that time period a lot of aluminum wiring was used. Very unsafe. Isn't home ownership fun!?
  6. 32 Ford Hiboy MADE IN BRAZIL

    Very nice. I like it.
  7. Plastered

    I quite agree. Not to mention, odds are excellent that the electical wiring will need replacing. That will be worlds easier, with no plaster/lathe.
  8. Electric Hot Rod

    Nostalgia is a fine thing. Appreciation of a finely tuned IC engine as well. But me I'm a realist. I'm down for whatever makes my life easier, makes my life less expensive. I have an 40 mile commute each way. That equates out to 4 gallons of gas each day. We consider it to be a sacrifice for living where and how we want to live. But if something comes along to knock my fuel costs down, I'll be on board in a flash. When the cost of an electric vehicle that can handle my off-the-paved-road commutes, is doable, I will do.
  9. DECO-DENT, LFA-Powered Auburn Speedster Hardtop

    I'll be following. Looking good.
  10. I agree. Will be looking forward to it.
  11. Batmobile

    This is terrific. The bad part is that I'm gonna feel like I'm halfassn it when I build mine.
  12. 1968 Javelin Pro-touring scratchbuilt

    Outstanding work.
  13. Most beautiful planes of all time...

    Yep. Before my time though. A terrific unit.
  14. Most beautiful planes of all time...

    I may be kinda predjudiced cuz I worked on them, but the F15 always stuck me as a very cool design. Here's one from my old unit. FANG 125th Fighter Wing, Jacksonville Florida.
