  1. Claude, very well thought out , planned , and executed. just a beautiful model sir.
  2. So very clean, and done with no pressure obviously. Building slowly and precisely the only way to go.
  3. STUNNING!!!! that is the only verbage coming to mind right now for me, and descrition wise typing!!
  4. Man I guess i haven't been here in awhile. Beautiful work on these, you can always tell when someone truly feels the passion for these cars,Thank You for sharing.
  5. Thanks Brian, sorry it's not the finished product if you look you can see in the second photo the stacks. I wanted to try something different and "stuff" an engine in there instead of the kit provided fake kit provided. On my next build I promise to photo the "power plant". George Folmers Javelin.
  6. I do have an engine somewhere pretty sure you're not going to like it. I have to look here somewhere. I have made it known I am not much on photos, basically before and after covers the extent of my photo work.
  7. Great job! Bobby Rahals ride if, ahem, memory serves me right? Very clean build.
  8. Thank you for the offer Alexis I have already received one. Thank you for being so thoughtful.
  9. amazing piece of work Dann you should be very proud
  10. Thank you all for the comments. I appreciate them all very much. A couple more points, I reworked the firewall in the cab and even though its extremely hard to see, I also added a correct roll bar, the radiators are photo etched,the "black" air discharge marking on the radiators is also decal, and thinned aluminum tubing for the exhaust dumps. These points are minor, but, still..... again thank you.
  11. There is a wired, detailed 427 tucked away in there, picture 2 shows the stacks peaking up through. I left the wheels magnesium instead of painting them aluminum per Paul's instruction, I just like that look a little better as far as realism. I also replaced all the molded in dzus fasteners and used photo etched (not sure whose, but not supplied) and exposed them though polishing, I also used IndyCal decals for the wheels. Instead of painting the dash and the wing edges I chose to use decal film, I wanted to make sure there would be no nasty paint edges involved. Please excuse the quality and size of my photos, I REALLY don't have this part down.
