  1. Started building mine and you could basically build it without painting anything but when you look at the directions you will notice there are things you can paint to add even more detail. It even lists colors on parts that are not molded in that color. An example of this is right in step one on the engine where there is a part right on top (looks like a fuel rail maybe) the color code on it is M which in the key is Brass and there is nothing molded in brass color...
  2. I literally just sat down to watch the race and start my build and research on my Elliott car. Only thing I have seen so far is TS-93 is supposed to be a good match for the blue and I read that these kits the tolerances are so close that you should use a cement on it like testors and not a CA or like glue. Thanks for the link and info..
  3. Hey was a Philly guy, I'm from Kensington. Still have a lot of family there. Anyone from Philly knows that name... RIP....
  4. That would be exactly why when I was young we always called the Opel a poor mans Corvette.... I have to agree on the Chevelle's, I never noticed it honestly but very true..
  5. I believe they are based on these wheels but have never had a set...
  6. Yeah I told him he needs to start building more street cars, he started a Mustang of a car he used to own and is having a hard time building it too… He needs to find that thing that brings the spark back for him.. I started separating all the parts back into kits and I’m at 14 plus the 2 untouched kits so far…
  7. He has lost interest in it, Him and I both started building preteen and he never stopped. I took a 10 or more year break. I think he will start building again but I think it's more that all he was building was Nascar kits and he needs to go back to building street cars....
  8. My brother has decided to give up building and told me he would sell me his started kits and 2 untouched kits for $40 of course I couldn’t pass it up and let it go to someone else.. there is somewhere between 20 and 25 started kits all NASCAR stuff
  9. I’m hoping to make it to this show, I probably won’t show anything but I like looking and shopping..
  10. Had a great trade with RichCostello and would trade with him anytime. Thanks Rich...
  11. I used a cutter like that for my stencil for my 39, I have a build in the worked I plan to use it for lettering for my first time...
  12. 10-4 Thanks... That would mean I need 2 polar lights and 1 AMT
  13. Hey guys, I’m wanting to build all three versions of Ecto 1 from the original two movies and a weathered version from Afterlife. My understanding is the AMT kit can be built as Ecto 1 or Ecto 1A and I can modify the last to build what I’ve been calling Ecto 1B the car from Afterlife. Thanks in advance hopefully I’ll have something you guys want…
  14. Congrates!!!! 6 more years for me also, being in good health is the important part. Stay healthy and enjoy!!
  15. I agree Dick Hill is the best for Reacher I think and I like George Guidall also he is great as Longmire. I’m a Robert B Parker fan so I like James Naughton and Joe Mantegna a lot also I will keep an eye for him and check him out, thanks for the tip
  16. I've used it a few times, I've seen several people say to reduce it with windshield washer fluid or alcohol and I'm sure it works well but I honestly have had the best luck reducing with bottled water and nothing else...
  17. I really like Scott Brick but I like him as Johnathan Quinn in the Brett Battles books
  18. I have always wanted a 69 Cougar Eliminator, black with a red interior. Also I had a 69 Amx and a 71 Javelin when I was young and I would love to have one of them again…
  19. I have to agree, I currently own a 2005 F150 Supercrew thats lifted and some other mods and a 86 F150. I've been a Ford guy for a long time....
  20. I listen to audio books and have done a bunch of the Reacher books, I never cared much for Tom Cruise in the part but liked the movies. I always pictured Jim Caviezel when I listens to them. I always thought he would be the perfect Reacher especially after watching Person of Interest. I will definitely have to check this series out...
  21. I have always wished they would make a kit of them, I used to have a 2003 F150 Supercrew 2wd in Dark Toreador red and Silver. I have always wanted to build it...
  22. I have one I made years ago like Greg's but a few years ago I bought one of the Tamiya ones and I like it a lot, I liked it so much I just ordered a second one so I can do more than one car and not have to take the first off the stand and it gives me a second parts holder as I got the set both times...
