  1. That came up very nice. I have thought about getting one of these but that is as far as it has got. The look of the Lonestar still has not grown on me, that grille reminds me of a cow puncher on an old steam locomotive. Nice job on opening the doors also. You should get some outdoor pics of it, the red and chrome would really pop.
  2. That is too cool. And to do all that in 2 months is very impressive. Great job all around.
  3. Well, it didn't rain aircraft parts on me๐Ÿ˜„ But seriously I woke up to this view this morning. The older I get the less I like snow but this did look pretty cool. Just glad the trees are bare or we would have been busted up.
  4. Looks great. Looks like you kept it in a case for it to be so clean.. I am a believer in that. Flame job looks like it would be tedious to do. I have one of these in the pile that I'll get to one of these days/years. Biggest thing is I haven't decided what color to make it.
  5. Well, after 4 or 5 months I finally got this undertaking done. Or as done as I'm gonna get it๐Ÿ™‚ Built from 2 MPC gravel trailer kits. Never did like the look of that 24 ft. triple axle that the kit depicts, so I dared to be different, converted it to a frameless tandem axle which is very common here in the western U.S. Probably not entirely accurate since all I had to go by was pics I found on the net, and they weren't the best. It seems that no 2 of these were the same. It's gonna go behind my W925, still need to pin the 5th wheel on it, still need a bit of research on that and come up with a hydraulic line. I kinda made it up as I went on some of it, surprisingly it ended up looking like I envisioned it. This is the biggest kitbash/scratch build I have ever done. I have learned a lot reading on this site which helped me get up the nerve to tackle such a project. Biggest thing is don't be afraid to dive in and give it a shot. I am happy with how it turned out overall. Hope you like, comments/critiques welcome as always. Thanks for lookin'.
  6. Nice. Can't wait to get one myself.
  7. Nice job. Your first time at BMF looks good. It gets easier as you go. I'm gonna have to pick up one of these next time they come around. My mom had a '67 Riv when I was in high school. That was a fun car to drive, but could suck out half a tank of gas in 2 blocks....
  8. The Revell 59 Skyliner is the only multi piece body kit I have done. My dad's best friend came by with this kit and asked me if I could build it for him. I said uhhhh OK or something. I'm always up for a challenge so I told him I'll give it a shot but just don't be in a hurry for it. He wanted it to match the one he drove in 1960. It was a bit tedious but not as bad as I thought it would be. The top was a different story, never did get it to work. My camera wouldn't capture the color quite right, I mixed it to match the Ford geranium color fairly. Looks orange in pics. He was tickled pink with it, I also became much better at BMF after putting a scale mile of it on this thing. Sadly, the big guy passed away 5 or 6 yrs. ago, so I ended up getting it back. One day I'll see if I can make the top work.
  9. Had to go to Micro Center this morning, Hobbytown was kinda sorta on the way back so stopped in. Picked up a new razor saw and they had one of these Tamiya drills. I did not realize I had to put it together.....
  10. So is there ever gonna be the tomb of the unknown caller?
  11. My late fur baby Frosty. She went off to that big dog park in the sky 5 Decembers ago. 80lb. White German Shepherd. Total sweetheart. I still miss her dearly.
  12. Nice. I have one of these in my pile, couldn't pass it up. No idea when I'll get around to it.
  13. Got a call from my local Hobbytown that my Kenworth mixer finally got here. Should have asked if they had a 2nd one they could put aside for me. Will be surprised if they have an extra sitting there by tomorrow.
  14. What everyone else said. So happy they are bringing this kit back. Can't wait to get one.
  15. That turned out real nice. Gotta love the vague at best AMT instruction sheets. I'll have to grab one of these next time it rolls around. I recently built a Revell K100. Also a very nice kit aside from the major flash on every part.
