  1. I also followed your work, the result looks fabulous! The colour suits the build, understated and beautiful finish. Congrats Misha
  2. One of my WIPs is a 36 Ford Lakester for which I decided to chop with a distinct forward slope. Perhaps there shots will help. Cheers Misha
  3. Misha, you are an artist!

  4. Been a pleasure to see your recent posts Russ, been enjoying them all! Only with these two recent ones did I realize that it was your avatar being you. Cheers Misha

    Thanks to Everyone!

    So true Snake! The community on this forum offers a real bonus during this time of “Social Distancing” by maintaining contact with each other. Over the years I have had the good fortune to actually get together with many of you in person throughout the Pacific Nor’West, the South West States and across Canada. It has been a feature of our model work/hobby that the solitary nature generates such a strong and welcoming community. Stay safe and healthy, and to quote “Model On!” Cheers Misha
  6. Not a race car...but a 🚕 taxi...
  7. Great idea! Count me in. As circumstances developed our travel plans to Scottsdale have been sidelined due to health and the Covid19. This is a very innovative idea, thinking out of the box, congrats. Stay healthy and cheers, Misha
  8. If one were to attempt to scratch build a long roof, the Alexander Bros. used the tailgate window for their Deora windshield... that may go a long way in helping with a model. Cheers Misha
  9. I tend to agree with most of the comments about how our hobby, in comparison to other endeavours, remains within the grasp of most adults. The issue with younger modelers, apart from screentimes, is that the kits are expensive for them compared to what else is available for $20-40. Growing up in the late 50s and 60s, average price in Canada was 2.50 to 3.50, certainly affordable on a typical weekly allowance. This has become an adult hobby now. Cheers Misha
  10. That’s really good thinking Dominick! In a way a reward for finishing a build is to plan ahead... my first instinct is to go for yet another new project, I’ve already been perusing the stash. Yet, I really like the idea and it makes sense to continue being a part of the thread by choosing a stalled project instead. Yeah, now to review the choices... Perhaps from 2014 the Tall T Coupe... Thanks Misha
  11. Great looking traditional rod, congrats! Was there much modification to fit the Monogram fenders to fit? Cheers Misha
  12. Thanks for all the feedback, really makes the forum work well with the exchange of ideas. With that in mind, I will be leaving it as it is, the white stripe and blended roundels provide the right accent for the racing body. Very happy with the build, next stop will be Under Glass. Thanks again, Misha
  13. Just finished the old Monogram Scarab kit based on their slot car offering from the early 60s. The model depicts the single version built by Reventlow Automobiles Inc. (RAI) for Lance Reventlow’s use. It was later modified with a SBC equipped with four side draft Webers on a x-ram manifold (similar to the GS Vettes). At that time it became AJ Foyt’s ride to victory at the 1963 Nassau Trophy race. So here is my question... at this point I really like the look of the Scarab as it sits without decals, as it allows me to take in the great lines and proportions... on the other hand, it would be great to have the Mecom/AJ ride with numbers and sponsorships, even if takes away the eye from the overall look somewhat. I am only missing the round Wynn’s decal and the CanAm Race Series insignia. What would you choose? Why? Thanx Misha
  14. Wow! I’m done! Thanks Snake for helping out to get this Shoebox on the road. Just in time for tonite’s meeting. Will be posting it “Under Glass” for more of a rundown on the story of the two bros who inherit Grandad’s 49 Shoebox... Cheers Misha
  15. I recently built the AMT Phaeton and found Alan Barton’s comment to the origin of the one piece body to be the Aussie version. For my build I scratch built most of the interior, attempting to replicate the sectioned American version by using a panel behind the two bucket seats that were modified into a bench seat. The chassis and powertrain were also modified by fitting the R/M front suspension and Ford 302 from their Deuce series. The working luggage rack was also scratch built with an MPC trunk. Always have liked then Phaeton body style and quite happy with the tourer build. Cheers Misha
