  1. That interior is beautiful. If I may, what is the tan color you used? It is perfect.
  2. Never chopped a top before so I figure I would give it a go and see what happens. Well, looks like it is a pretty tough task. Not so great an outcome but I learned a ton and now I know what not to do when chopping a top. I will give it a go again sometime but I am going to take a break from heavy customs for a bit. Tried Tamiya's two color paint and it is pretty cool. Goes on well and really didn't have any issues with it. Result is neat and I think there is even more you can do with it. It has given me some ideas anyway. Thanks for looking
  3. Perfect color choice and those rims look amazing. Love it!
  4. Love it. I have been considering getting this one for some time and it is great to see it built. Looks awesome.
  5. An older kit and not as well thought out as some of the other kits from this era. Many of the parts did not quite fit right or didn't have proper attachment points but overall not too bad. I have done worse. Paint messed up on me in the clear stage and the red plastic bleed through was quite apparent but this was more of a test car than anything to try and see if I can do stripes. Turns out I can do stripes. Cool. Interesting car and honest, looks a lot better in person than any of my photos. Something about the roundness of the car make it hard to photograph. Thanks for looking. Full build video on my YouTube channel.
  6. What a beaut. You did a great job with this one. I love these kits a lot.
  7. That looks awesome. Don't think I have ever seen this kit and being a big fan of 80s and 90s cars, I can see I am missing out. Congrats on a great build!
  8. I would love to do a channel on 1-1 stuff but I am sure I would get way too out of hand and full size is expensive! I am sure I would end up like hoovies garage only full of junky imports. Haha. The joint build was a blast and totally worth if. I would consider it with anyone up for it and really, it can be done even if you don't have a channel. Just need to video all your work. That tends to be the hard part.
  9. Thanks for the comments guys! Appreciate it!
  10. Thanks. I like the idea of a sleeper, right down to the rims. Haha. I will admit, I did get inspiration from an online photoshop I saw. Well, it likely will be good in a straight line but not sure how good that corvair suspension is! 😂 Thank you! Thanks! Thank you! 🤣🤣 Here is the video. I don't have any photos of the underside but you can clearly see it in the video and how it went together. Hope that helps. Thank you. I would have to agree! 😁
  11. I love how this turned out. You did a fantastic job. What a great looking car.
  12. This is a great model. I have built it several times over the years but this is absolutely my best. But it was not without it's issues. The paint cracked on me with the first painting. Stripped it and painted again with a different color. Same result! Stripped it again and painted it with the first color I did and then it worked! I did this one as a joint build with someone from Poland. We built at the same time but didn't show each other what we were doing. When finished we shared all our video footage and then made a single video of the two kits being built together. It was actually a really great project over all. Full build video is on my YouTube channel and the joint build is as well. Thanks for looking!
  13. Yup, you read that topic right, I stuffed a mid engine Testarossa motor into a 69 Corvair. This was an AMT kit for the Corvair and a Monogram Testarossa for the engine/sub frame. While they are different scales, it actually turned out looking pretty good. There is a full build video on my YouTube channel. Check it out if you want to see how it was done. Thanks for looking.
  14. Great looking mini truck. You did a great job with this kit!
