  1. JoHan USA Oldies

    Mark, Mike and Steve, thank you for the further information, at least I now know that the basic stance of these models needs to be corrected. Thankfully I have a few spare chassis and a growing spares box to work with. David
  2. JoHan USA Oldies

    Bill, This is useful information, I'm in the right direction. Kicking myself for missing out on the '62 Chrysler 300 from the same vendor, sold and gone. Many thanks David
  3. Other Hobbies

    My other interests include 1/72 & 1/48 scale model aircraft, 1/35 scale tanks and military vehicles. I love music and have always had a decent hi-fi separates system, although I no longer keep up with the latest tech stuff. As well as classic rock and pop, I collect film scores/soundtracks and have a few hundred on cd. I have a small collection of guitars, including a gold top 2001 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe, a black 1998 Gibson SG Standard and a cherry red 2002 Gibson '61 Standard re-issue. My dream purchase would be a Mellotron M4000D keyboard, to get those great ethereal string/brass sounds of late 1960's and 70's psych and prog rock. I currently get my keyboard kicks with a Roland JD-Xi mini synth.
  4. I recently got these two complete un-built kits; From previous posts I gather they're accurate body wise, but with very simplified chassis and interiors. What kits would be suitable donors for chassis & engines ? Thank you
  5. Revell '41 Willys Street Rod

    A really wicked Willys, great work, and that paint is smooth!
  6. 74 roadrunner

    Another great build Michelle. I said it before, but you sure work hard at this. Puts me to shame. I must try and just build the darn things, and not fuss over the non important stuff.
  7. Dukes of Hazzard Diorama

    Brilliant !, almost too crazy for words. Of course you know how to model dust !, your from Oz.
  8. Removing Chrome Plating

    UK 'Chrome' Remover If anyone is wondering what is suitable for removing model chrome here in UK, this stuff works well, if not quickly, in my opinion. Takes the chrome off in approx. two hours in some cases, and also the glue/varnish stuff in about 12 hours, depending. For example there was the same sort of yellow brown discoloration on the chrome for both an AMT '71 Duster ( 2001 Walmart style box), and the AMT '57 Chrysler 300C (1999 issue). Both sets went in to the Mr Muscle Power Gel on Saturday afternoon. The Duster chrome and glue took less than a day, however the 300C parts are still in the gel, chrome was gone yesterday (Sunday) morning but most of the glue was still there late afternoon.
  9. Asphalt Modified Tires Question

    Hi Alan, that's the answer I was hoping for ! I've already tried PPP's NASCAR 60-64 & 65-69 style, treaded tires on some models, and they look great. I just wanted to try some other alternatives. I really don't like undersized, or skinny tires on American muscle cars, anything smaller than the L60-15 Polyglas, or G70-15's styles, just doesn't cut it, IMHO. David.
  10. Plastic Performance Products have a range of 1/24/1/25 scale Asphalt Modified Tires such as these. I realise that the real tires are primarily for dry asphalt surface road racing. My question is would these be credible alternatives for drag and NASCAR models, or for "unofficial" stock, custom, or hot rod race cars ?
  11. Revell 1964 Impala

    You're setting too high a standard, so just stop right now ! Seriously, nice body finish and interior details, this is great work.
  12. Buck Baker Olds done

    A superb build, I didn't know that the 1966 Olds' was used for a NASCAR racer.
  13. Bobby Johns 66 Chevelle

    I have been looking at NASCAR builds to help me get started. This is another great model, I like how you managed to fit the wider tires.
  14. Dan Gurney Ford

    Looking for examples of NASCAR builds, and this one is absolutely perfect.
  15. Cotton Owens Charger 500

    I have an MPC '69 Charger body and glass, and the chassis from the Revell '70 Charger, and a couple of spare engines to work with. So with skill patience and ingenuity, plus lots of Evergreen plastic and filler, I hope to get a result.
