  1. Misha added a post in a topic Island Classic Model Show - Victoria BC Canada - Oct 24 - PHOTOS   

    The Island Classic this past Saturday was a great event with a very good turn out of automotive and other subjects. All the automotive categories had a number of entries, with the major "Orange" theme proving to be a delight for the eyes and laugh button. 
    A big thank you and congratulations to the SPAM organizing committee and especially Phil for the photography (please check out his Fotki page listed above).
    Cheers Misha

    Great news! Getting the Model A is perfect for all the gearheads! Plus the Porsche 914 reissue after all these years. Thanks Tim for the details on the 29 and glad to hear about the Nailhead. Always liked the Buick in the Trophy kit of the Willys/Duece Sedan as it had matching valve and plug covers, yet it seems that might have been missed in Revell's offering, which would be a shame. Yet the rest of the kit sounds bang on, especially the two frames. Can see how this will be a hit just as their Duece has been. All this news on the heels of recent threads here regarding the need for a 29 and the great build of the 914; this will surely ignite many of our imaginations!
    Cheers Misha
  3. Misha added a post in a topic New Kit Proposal....from 39 years ago..   

    I'm certainly behind you on the idea of having a 29 roadster issued that would ride on a Deuce frame. When one looks at the success Revell has had with their varied Deuce kits, one would think they would be the natural manufacturer to issue the 29. It's a no brainer as such a kit would appeal to all the gearheads who have built the previous kits. By the way, when can we see the original 32 roadster reissued as my supply has been used up. Hope the molds still exist and weren't eaten up to produce the rat roaster version.
    Cheers Misha

    Wow, just saw this added to your previous two posts, again congrats on enhancing this kit. As before your paint schemes are bang on! Plus adding the plumbing really makes it sizzle.
    Thanks for showing your work, looks fabulous and your output is commendable.
    Cheers Misha

    A great companion piece to your dragster Jason, wonderful paint and decal choice. Looking forward to more of your work. Have a look at some vintage photos to see the fuel line hookups, as you've done well with the ignition wiring and the next step would be to add the fuel lines too. Fairly basic set ups back then and it add even more realism to your great work.
    Cheers Misha

    Great job Jason! Very clean build with all the bits lining up nicely. I especially like your paint treatment with the chrome firewall. This vintage kit has always been a favorite of mine right from the first issue back in the early sixties. All the extra parts have always been useful and I'm glad AMT saw fit to reissue it complete.
    Congrats on your rail,
    Cheers Misha

    Speaking of vice-versa, while searching the web for Corvair engine details, I was surprised to see that they are a hot commodity for small aircraft and home built planes!

    Congrats on another beautiful build Phil!
    My favorite style of racing with favorite vehicle, a Duece.
    Cheers Misha

    Hi Brian,
    Still a WIP, although I'm away from my workbench at home on Vancouver Island while I spend the winter in Scottsdale, AZ (escaping the rainy season). Ought to be back in about a month and will post an update. It's a good kit, allowing for greater detail through gizmology!
    Thanks for asking, it's great encouragement.
    Cheers Misha

    Great technique and tip for the pulleys plus great detail on the engine!
    Thanks Misha

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments and encouragement. Looking forward to be back at the bench after the holidays down here in Scottsdale.

    Two 2014 Builds!
    For the first time in quite awhile I can post a completed year end build! While I have a ton of WIPs, getting one into the display case has been a struggle. Usually it's the process rather than the result for me. So I was very happy to complete this pair based on the Tony Nancy rail and the 55 Chevy pickup. Together they depict the LaBelle Speed Shop from California back in 63. I was so pleased with the result that for this new year the plan is to complete a number of my Duece WIPs, ranging from a five window rail to a salt flats roadster, and a couple of T's. Hopefully you'll see the efforts at this time next year.
    Happy New Year to all,
    Cheers Misha

  13. Misha added a post in a topic Need a little information on Gorilla Super Glue   

    While I haven't tried the product, I do feel that the forum is set up to help each other. I would like to know of other modellers experiences, for truly that is the best way to learn. By sharing information we can save a lot of grief that others have discovered or found a way around a problem.

    I hope to see others chime in with their experiences, rather than suggest that one try it out themselves. The forum exists so that we do not work in isolation.
    Cheers Misha
  14. Misha added a post in a topic Parts Inventory   

    I use the tiny ziploc style bags used by jewellers with a note describing what the part is and the kit it's from. From there it's into metal Twinnings tea containers labeled "Intake Systems", "Ignition Systems", etc. Only problem is I'm a coffee drinker, so there's a lot of loose tea around the house!
    Cheers Misha

    I would certainly be interested, and would buy one or more if it were full detail. I've had a look at the pre-painted kits and am not impressed as its like working on a jigsaw puzzle. Those kits may be good for novice builders or young kids, yet for me, I prefer the challenge! (No pun intended)
    Cheers Misha
