  1. Hello all, its been such along time and well I jus wanted to touch base with all of you, life has a way of saying scooch over and I haven't been at the table in years. Ive found myself in better recreational time so I jus wanted to see if ole friends were still around and looking forward to seeing and hearing from you all. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  3. Hey all!! Greetings from the juligan clansmen!! Lol here's the 72' challenger that's been on the work bench some of the bmf came off while polishing so ill have to fix that and begin final assembly. the paint is MM graphite metallic and the side stripes are decals. wheels were taken from the monogram 70 roadrunner and tires were from the kit! For the powerplant kit motor with velocity stacks from the parts box. the kit came with supercharged items so I had to scratch up some pulleys and alternator.. will post up more pics when final assembly is near the end.. see ya round and thanx for stopping

Finishing up the update with my panther pink Road Runner built up for my wife because " Its time for another pink car honey"... lol Last up for now is my recently found love is the amt superwagon 65 chevelle. This kit was purchased three times since my last visit to the lhs. This project will be the stock version and the other two.... Well we will have to wait to see if I can get away wth building them the way I envision them.. This is my stock turned volunteer emergency vehicle with a lil' bite under the hood..

  7. Hello all! Back at it again! This time just updating the Hott Bloxx thread with one of many that will enter to this years T.A.M.S. contest here in Norfolk this October. For those that may be in the VA beach Va and Norfolk area please stop in on the 22nd of October at Venue VFM POST 4809 5728 Bartee St Norfolk, VA 23502 Heres the Ferrari Testarossa that will be built up for the factory stock 1971 and newer. When I think of the 80's I remember bright colored clothes, big cell phones, and Don Juans''... Heres my interpretation of a ladies man hitting the scene in Miami, Fl on a weedend night.. Chassis: Engine bay: Interior shot with scratch'd 2 dozen roses
  8. WOW!!! this is so coooool! Keep on wit the keepin on!!
  9. Hello there friend! Ive seen this car transformed to so many different styles and this has to be the most memorable! This is so cool to see in modern drag style! Two thumbs up and way coooool peace ajulia
  10. Awesome!! Heres a few pics of the ground coverage. Trial and error plus color washing once the top surface is dried gives it that much more life!
  11. Hey gator! If yer still looking for chain link and you have a MIcheals art store near ya in the jewelery making section you find it there! I have some myself so if you dont have one near ya! Id be more than happy to send ya some! Also the dio is coming along awesome! A really neat trick to make worn down asphalt 1 potting soil filtered to get the fine grains 2. 3m spray adhesive 3. section off the area to be paved and then spray a good amount of spray adhesive then go nuts with the soil. even it out and then spary a coat of 3m on top of! Let it dry a bit and then begin to roll over it with a pen. If pot holes is what yer lookin for... leave little mounds scattered so that the rolling begins to remove some of the soil that has spray beneath it and youll eventually start to see holes in the pavement! I spray a little more 3m where the potholes are so that it sinks in and yer not left with loose soil! Whats cool is the 3m gives the soil a hard old ashpalt look to it! Keep on wit the keepin on!
  12. Thank you Mr.G' you are very correct and Ill have to revise the topic heading. I did in fact use the basswood for the deck which is MID-WEST part 1138 that has a measurement of .0208 x .0833 x 11.. Im also using it for the USS Helena that revell issued in 480 scale. Again thank you for pointing that out with me.
  13. No worries here my friend! SO....... I guess you do learn new things everyday! Also many carriers were made by combining a series of hulls to complete the carriers and yes wooden decks seemed to be the least desired route however with availablity and the fact that steels beams would have to be made in several yards resources were scarce and technology primative! Now please dont quote me but this is what I gathered from varied research and information! Also Mr. Holt is correct with weight restrictions! I jus think carriers are awesome and a heck of an accomplishment!! Something about floating cities are soooooo cool!!
  14. Hey Mr.Z' I had to pump the brakes on continuing the deck and thank goodness i saw yer post! I was gong to apply it directly on the deck and realized i would need to put a flat clear base on it wash it with a dark hulll gray, then apply the tamiya flat base to start giving it worn down tones. Thanks for the heads up fella!
  15. Hello there friend! I can see it already this will be a knock out build and the fact thats its bowtie is always an official stamp!! "Keep on wit the keepin on!!
  16. Hello there fella! A good friend of mine picked it up and came into the shop today to tell me its a really simple kit hence the handfull of parts but a really good kit to put together! Not sure what the release date was but its been in the shop for a week now. peace ajulia
  17. Hello there friend!! Looks really cool! How was the kit assembly portion of the build up? Any hurdles encountered? All in all keep on wit the keepin on!!! peace ajulia
  18. Im not sure fella! I wanted to try a masking job and add alittle accent to the curves on the rear paneling is all! Id like to see the pics of the corvair you speak of thats gotta look cool!!! I say that because the body cues in the 60's for sport/race cars were awesome lookin! Not to exaggerated like the 70's styles! Thanks for the heads up tho' I'll have to do the whole google thing!!
  19. Hello guys! From my past experience I think Mr. P is bussing chops here! lol Also I agree with Mr. Craig If my research as well is correct Revell modeled the USS Yorktown that was to set to sail for its trial and work ups in Norfolk in the late thirties and began support runs in the Atlantic and then off to the Pacific which it claimed its final resting place at the Battle Of Midway heres a link to the CV-5 that Revell modeled!Also Mr. Zinn is also correct with the dilemmas in having a wooden deck and the eventual switch from wood to more reinforced steel beams and frame work! Id go into detail but Id like to let those people interested in such a subject to read themselves. http://www.history.navy.mil/danfs/y1/yorktown-iii.htm Heres the updated pics of Yorktown minus the flat base to replicate the stain that was applied to the decks thanks for stoppin and as always" keep on wit the keepin on!!
  20. Hola Mr. P!! O.... you got jokes!! lol!! Ive placed matte aluminum BMF for the deck braces and landing markers! Ill finish the deck with tamiya flat base!! lol.. Other than the obvious hull accuracy and the amount of guns in the kit versus the actual amount the kit is pretty cool and will be the bases for the USS Hornet and USS Enterprise. Im finishing up the assembly of the deck to the hull and debating if I should model the aircraft supplied with the kit or source out some aftermarket items! Thanks for stoppin! peace ajulia
  21. Mornin fellas! Thanks for stoppin!! Ive recently made the transition from enamels to acrylics and they both have their advantages and disadvantages! You get easier clean up but it seems the acrylic base dries even while its being sprayed. I have very small pits scattered throughout this build on the body. Ive probably sanded the body 5 or 6 times because of it. All in all it was a really cool build and assembly was awesome.. Also @ Mr. Soder! My PB just uploads differently now which is cool but I did enjoy the fact that right clicking on the topic box was easier! O well.... As always my friends Keep on wit the keepin on!! and be safe in yer travels! peace ajulia
  22. Hello all! Ive always been fascinated with aircraft carriers! So with the revell carrier Id like to build the sister ships all in one diorama! As always thanks for stoppin and keep on wit the keepin on!
  23. Thanks fella.. Heres how the rear "kinda-sorta resembling the stingray swimming! lol
