  1. Bingo! I believe that I have what you're looking for... The version I have in mind for the kit doesn't require the rear seat. Please drop me a line by email, mishakoslovsky@me.com. Cheers Misha
  2. What a smooth and clean rendition of the early 50s Fords, the overall look is well balanced with the front fender overhang in front of the wheel being balanced by the rear portion of the fenders on the bed. The execution of the body mods is perfect in delivering the smoothness of the build. Especially like the altered front grill with the color contrast. The modern wheels and updated engine fit well into the overall look. Great job Roger! Much more than just a shelf model. Cheers Misha
  3. Here is my entry for the next round, a Shoebox project that dates back to 8 February 2017 using the most recent re-pop of the venerable AMT kit. I found the kit to have quite a bit of flash around the body mold lines which required a fair amount work to clean up. To massage the body I used the custom front and rear belly pan treatments, removed the chrome side trim and added a trim ring around the front fender wheel cutout with skirts on the back. Also added custom fairings for the side lake pipes. The hood required a further finessing to have it fit with added thin strips to the leading edge. The basic interior tub was rebuilt by cutting away the side panels and flipping them side to side to provide a blank canvas upon which to build the custom pleated door panels. The rear seat received a similar treatment as did the rear parcel shelf. Buckets from a 64 Fairlane filled the front portion using the stock dash and steering wheel. Underneath the chassis is featured in red with additional details picked out in a variety of metal finishes. The wheels are from the 40 Ford panel with the bladed Moons. The Y-Block Ford is from the 56 Vicky kit and is in the beginning stages of construction. The body was primed in Tamiya grey followed by the Testor Inca Gold. I particularly like the scale finish to the metalflake. So here she sits... waiting for completion to join the street ranks and cruise! Cheers Misha

    Interesting look... cab forward design on a Bug! Overall a neat concept. Cheers Misha
  6. Sweet ride Allan! The 409 mill with the supercharger really makes it standout. Been enjoying all your recent builds. Cheers Misha
  7. I've used their checkered decal over red paint for the seats of the interior of my 2016 Camaro.
  8. Thanx for the great photos Phil! We are in store for great weather this weekend. Even saw some Deuces cruisin' the Cowichan Valley. Cheers Misha
  9. Wow, finally done! Just in time for the 2019 Duece Days in Victoria. Our club is featuring a display of scale Deuces at the host hotel this weekend. Will follow up with Under Glass daylight photos soon. Pretty happy with the results, all fit well. Cheers Misha
  10. Just finished my entry tonight for Deuce Days this weekend! It's the "Hot Red Deuce", a combination of the vintage AMT and modern R/M series. It will join my entry from 2016, the "Blue Seude Vicky". Looking forward to a great event as over 1,000 Dueces have gathered out here on Vancouver Island. Cheers and stay tuned! Misha
  11. Wow Dennis, pretty darn slick! Great photos of the procedure... thanks. Cheers Misha
  12. Been following your build Kurt since returning back to Vancouver Island fron DSC... just amazing work and thought, artistry on wheels! Wishing ypu a great time at GSL, safe travels. Cheers Misha
  13. I was fortunate to see your work up close at DSC and examine all three critically as a judge at the event. Truely great representations displaying ingenuity and delicate craftsmanship. Congrats on your well deserved wins and wishing you well at GSL. Cheers Misha
  14. Thanks for the heads up Greg. I'll make the attempt, see you at DSC mid April if I miss you. Cheers from the Canuck Snowbird, Misha
  15. Both front and rear clips differ considerably between the years. The 66 version uses a single headlight with smaller turn signals (with amber bulbs) whereas the 67 switched to dual headlights, a move that was not so succesful IMHO. Meanwhile the 67 rear clip looks much better with blended in taillights in a gentle curve along the trunk lid, much better than the previous year lights that appear tacked on. It would not be difficult to modify the kit if the 67 parts were available in resin or 3d modelling. The 66 interior featured western motif embellishments with two vertical divisions in each seat back which were changed to a single division the following year, again lessening the style of the original interior. Dad bought a 1966 Satellite as our first all brand new car back in September of 65 fresh off the show room floor. Pretty exciting for thus fourteen year old! Cheers Misha
