  1. Ive never been one for T buckets...BUT I may have to get in on this.
  2. Feel free to check current pricing on them...thanks for the bump anyway
  3. thanks Todd, appreciate you looking out!
  4. still looking to get rid of this
  5. I keep staring at my 2 on the shelf wanting to start shaving them but I already have a few projects I need to stay on
  6. I do so little past primer, I really don't need much more haha
  7. yeah thats what I found myself. Guess I make a new one out of some tig wire
  8. down n dirty unfoosed 56 f100 I just started. sectioned until I liked the look and the bed is starting as the quarters from a monogram 55 ford delivery. It's becoming a late 50s radical custom. I still need to set the wheelbase, bed length, height etc. itll have canted quad headlights (hence my wanted ad) ³
  9. my son seems to have lost one of my wires for my tamiya paint carousel. does anyone know if you can buy them separately? thanks
  10. I love it! any idea what the wheels and tires are from before they ended up in your parts box?
  11. I may need another one of these in my collection. Drag and 60s era custom Corvettes are the only vettes for me I'll be watching
  12. so Life has been a no stop flurry of activity and work. tonight is the first night I'm not working all day and late into the night, so what do I do? some mocking up pf course. I ended up with the Mercedes as a falling apart survivor in a sense. Im not a big European car guy BUT it hit me that it could be a KILLER custom. Imagine taking a coachbuilt Mercedes to the early masters like Westergard or Jimmy Summers, even SAM Barris amd they take it to the next level. picture if you will a car smoothed of its barbs, headlights molded low into the fenders, 49 Jag xk120 wheels and wide whites. the altitude adjusted etc. Im picturing skirts and maybe even extending the front fenders to give the car a fadeaway look. the shoebox is a body I recently picked up cheap. It's alittle rough around the edges due to the really bad paint, BUT I'm thinking I can block it all down, and give it a fresh look. the canted quafs, vette covers and 57 chevy rear custom tail along with the roof scoop solidly put it into the last 50s. I threw some old AMT wheels and tires under it for now.
  13. i have 3 49 Jag xk 120 roadster Danbury mint diecasts. One I restored, one Im turning into an early custom and the third Im turning into an early landspeed car.
  14. Ill be watching! I love early land speed and drag cars. I also use to race on the salt
  15. so much good stuff! Im gonna have to sit down after life calms down later this week and put a list together
  16. I have one of these bodies kicking around do I've been thinking about doing the same thing too!
  17. thanks guys, I havent been able to even think about doing any building lately. Between sick kids, getting my loose ends on the house tied up for an appraisal and other projects, there just hasnt been any time. IN FACT I recently ended up with a collection of survivors and I ended up with a few cool customs. Ive gotten as far as washing them and checking for missing parts. I havent even been able to mock them up. Paul, Im actually thinking about maybe trying my hand at a 3 window 40 since I ended up with a few stock height 36 roofs. That will be late on though I currently have a Foose 56 Ford Im planning mentally. IF I can find the time.
  18. Ill check it out. thank you!
  19. THANK YOU! sorry for the late reply, been insanely busy. I hardly ever finish anything, so Im sure youre well ahead of me in that department. I use models to flush out designs since I cant draw very well
  20. thanks! That lines up with what I've found as well. Im told this one appears all stock. I've found individual piece pricing but none complete. I think my new goal is to find a clean Banshee and a piece of track to display them on together
  21. hey guys, anyone versed in BZ cars? I ended up with this and I'd like to research some accurate information on it. I'm not selling it BUT I'd also like to know value as I've heard/seen all kinds of numbers... I dont need another hobby, but In doing some prelim research, I've seen some really killer stuff that I'd love to collect but I'd like to go about it responsibly thanks!
