  1. Very nice! My very first car was my parents '65 Galaxie, a 4 door, which was white with red interior. I bought it from them in 1975 for $500. Lots of good memories in that car. You did it justice!
  2. Yes - I looked at the DMW website last night and saw the black one. I’ll check eBay and Amazon to see if I can find it in blue. Thanks again!
  3. Thanks for the information Bill! Not sure yet if I'm gonna go with the C1 transkit or just get the Motormax diecast and repaint. Or maybe I'll do both!
  4. Looks great Mario! And in that setting it looks very realistic.
  5. Didn't get as much done as I hoped to this year. But I got a good start on building a 1:48 scale B-17G Flying Fortress in the last month '66 Chevelle SS '80 Triumph TR8 '68 McLaren M8A
  6. My brother gave me this for Christmas. Kinda neat but not something I would build normally. Cranking it by hand it will spin at about 250 rpm. I added the red "racing stripe"!
  7. Thanks for the info Matthijsgrit but unfortunately my AMT kit is 1:25 scale.
  8. Thanks Snake! I'll consider that, it even has the wheels I need!
  9. My mother-in-law gave me these for Christmas.... I'm gonna try to build the Challenger into a widebody R/T Scatpack that looks like this (below) but I'll need to get wheel arch flares, decals, etc. Does anyone know if any of these parts exist?
  10. Wow that is beautiful! Nice job!

    MGB GT V8

    I love it! I had a grade-school teacher that had a BRG MGBGT. It started my love for British cars. Is that a Webasto roof? I like the diorama too!
  12. A colleague of my wife’s that works at 5/3 Bank gave this to her some time ago.
  13. Nice TR6 gbtr6! What year is it? The Koenigs look great on it. Mine is an early '72 model. I've had it for 32 years and recently put a Toyota W58 5 speed gearbox in it and a differential from a Nissan 370Z. Are you a member of the national TR6 club "6-Pack"? Here's a better shot of mine....
  14. My bro in law had it tinted after he bought it. I don't mind the tint on the upper section, but the lower section tint hinders me seeing where the front of the car is. It's like looking out of a narrow slit almost. Probably not legal in OH.
  15. I've never seen this kit before, that is crazy cooool! Great job on it!
  16. Very realistic looking! i like the side view mirror hanging from the cable and the board sticking out the window. Great job!
  17. Wow that is beautiful! Great color and love the wheel and tire choice! Where are the wheels and tires from if I may ask?
  18. Yep if the Challenger were my daily driver I think I'd need to get a second job just to pay for the gas and insurance. I like that Hell Rasin color!
  19. Yeah I took the 6 out today for a drive and it felt like a toy compared to the Challenger. But it's just as much fun to drive and it get more looks.
  20. Mike worked at a job which required him to be away from home most of the time so the car only has about 2200 miles on it. He also had a Dodge PU for his DD. I’ve put about 200 miles on it myself. You can bet I’ll be blowing it out once in a while!
