  1. Great work. Unbelievable detail. That rear fin thing is indeed called a cavitation plate, and the rear of the boat is called the transom. In the pic that you show the cavitation plate is adjustable while driving, some earlier flat bottoms had a stationary cavitation plate . In boat racing the more boat out of the water, the faster the speed. Also great colors. Thanks for posting . Bob
  2. Fantastic. So well detailed & that interior is outta the park.
  3. Thanks all for the kudos. The engine is the six from the AMT 51 Chev . In order to use the extra frame, you do need to make a couple of very simple crossover pieces. But I did build 3 complete cars from this kit. Thanks for your interest. Bob

  12. Bob Purdy Currently still own & built - 1954 Chev 210 Wagon -- 1946 Ford two door sedan. I have built a 1/25 model of my 46.
  13. I just used a small dab of C.A. glue applied with a toothpick in several spots in the cove where the chrome molding would go and that worked for me. Also I buy the cheapo Dollar Store nail files, hold nail file down and rub the chrome piece back and forth over the file to remove the chrome plating on the backside for more secure hold. Bob
  14. Very very nice . A great save. Bob
