  1. 1932 Ford Chopped 4-Door Sedan Conversion

    Wow Dennis, pretty darn slick! Great photos of the procedure... thanks. Cheers Misha
  2. Ferrari 275P/360M Restorod

    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
  3. 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
  4. This Saturday for Phoenix area modelers

    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
  5. 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
  6. Desert Scale Classic XV - April 13

    Looking forward to the DSC, a great gathering and event! Cheers Misha
  7. They shoot horses, don't they?

    Another thought is to use a trick from the armour modellers and use kleenex tissue, cut to size and slightly soaked in a white glue and water mixture to drape over the piece. You can form it around the tranny to fit and pinch in the belt areas with thread (maybe fit belts made from masking tape now as well). Let it dry to a hard finish, usually a day. Plus it's easy to do another one if the first one is a flub. Cheers Misha
  8. Best Way to Store Molotow Pens?

    I tend to store metallic sharpies and the such lying down flat, for the other colours I store tip down. So far so 😊 good! Cheers Misha
  9. Welcome aboard Bill! Sure you'll find a great community here. I moved out to Victoria in the early 80's and for the first six winters it was snow free, things have certainly changed over time. About fifteen years ago started wintering in Arizona, and here it has begun being relatively cold too. Past week the night time low temps have been chillier than the Cowichan Valley. Looking forward to seeing your work, what are your favoured areas? Also keep in mind the local club, SPAM, Scale Plastic Auto Modellers, a number of members are quite active in the forum here. Cheers Misha
  10. Compressor recommendations

    After many years of using various compressors I would recommend the Iwata studio model if one is serious about airbrushing. It is very quiet, thankfully and has two lines running off of it, complete with seperate regulators and moisture traps. It is a bit more money yet very worthwhile. I would definitely stay away from the small hobby compressors, the ones without a holding tank, as the airstream pulsates from the compressor itself. With a tank that problem is eliminated. I've had my current one for six years and it has been trouble free and very quiet, so one can use it in an apartment or in the middle of the night for us insomniacs without disturbing anyone. Cheers Misha
  11. That's a great build Pat! I also followed along on your WIP and the additions to the hoist are bang on. Plus the other details you've included make this a model that bears closer examination. Features like the clearence lights, booster battery and the VRRRMMM plate add to the enjoyment of viewing your work. Congrats Misha
  12. AMT '32 Coupe - a basic street rod

    Beautiful job Manuel! Looks perfect for an early show rod, somewhat beyond basic with the great paint job, the padded roof insert, tucks and rolls in the wheel well.... so much to enjoy! Congrats on a great rod! Misha
  13. RRR Year in Review...

    Rockin' Rodney, I've enjoyed all your builds, comments and involvement with the forum. You have been an inspiration to many and a fountain of gearhead knowledge. Thanks for all of that, it is much appreciated! Cheers, best wishes and looking forward to 2018. Misha
  14. Ferrari LaFerrari

    That's a real winner John! The blue is perfect fit, and so much greater impact than the red. Plus your photos make it hard to believe it's a scale model, it appears to be parked in front of your place. Bravo & Congrats! Misha
  15. AMT 1962 Pontiac Catalina

    Congrats on a stunning paint job! Really fits the Poncho. Cheers Misha
