  1. Very cool! Like others have said, the paint and wheels are awesome. But I really like the sliding top and the orange ball on the antenna!

    Nice builds! The blue on that pickup is beautiful! Can I ask what color that is? Nevermind, I just found it in this link:
  3. Thanks, it was fun as long as you paid very close attention to the instructions. In some cases it was easy to pick the wrong part out of the dozens in the kit. If you didn't notice it until later in the build then you would have to go back and tear it all apart and rectify it. It happened to me when putting the 1st headlight assembly together. Lucky for me I noticed what was wrong soon after the mistake.
  4. OK this is not technically a model unless you consider it to be a 'snapper'. My wife gave it to me for Christmas. It's the only Lego thing I've ever built. 2573 pieces total and 860 steps to build it. Working independant suspension, doors, gate and hood open, pistons on 6 cylinder "engine" move up and down, forward/nuetral/reverse gearing, high and low gears, working winch steering, etc. The engineering to design the complicated drivetrain is pretty fantastic IMHO. Here is a 2 year old review of it from Motor Trend: https://www.motortrend.com/features/building-the-lego-land-rover-defender/ It reportedly took an experienced Lego builder 5 hours to complete it. It took me about 20 hours! Almost 17" long, estimated scale of 11:1. Comments welcome.
  5. Wow that is beautiful! The door fit is excellent and I agree with Goon that the work on the roll cage and engine mount is excellent.
  6. Wow that's a cool VW! Nice colors too and great photos by your brother!
  7. I ran across this website which has lots of period GT40 pics and some of the restored car... https://www.dhrofgo.com/sold/1964-ford-gt40-prototype-gt105-one-of-the-most-original-and-significant-competition-gt40s-to-ever-come-to-market/
  8. Wow, all three are beautiful! Nice job!
  9. I think some people just have too many toys! Guess if I was super rich I might have too many also.
  10. Hard to say which was my favorite, there were so many! But lately I really like Ford Torinos. Especially that orange one with the 429 shown in my previous post. But I really like Mopars also, especially Challengers and Daytonas.
  11. No problem NYLIBUD, I like to take pics of cars (if that isn't already obvious!). Here is the last of what I have.... And an Allard....
  12. And more...... A '70 Ford Torino King Cobra... I love this Barracuda.....
