  1. Happy Birthday Rudy!  Enjoy your special day.  Stay safe and best wishes. Hope to see you at a Downriver meeting when things get back to normal.

  2. Looks like fun! Maybe a smaller car like a Model A Roadster or Coupe Would fit much better, and still look like and "american" garage... -Rudy
  3. Wow, I am impressed beyond words. I could lay out one side, but making the other side Symetrical is where the problem lies! Great Work!- Rudy
  4. Came Out Great! Kit tires or aftermarket? I love the color... "root beer"? Take it one day at a time my friend.... Rudy
  5. Great job! I love that shade of blue. Are those billet-looking pulleys Kit parts or aftermarket? Thanks! Rudy
  6. i ordered a set of 60's Pontiac wheels, some replacement bronco (Revell) wheels and tires to replace the undersized ones in the kit, some drum brake backing plates, and 4 sets of military tires. Everything came fasterthan expected, and are very nice parts! I'm impressed, and will continue to be a customer. Below are some pics comparing the kit wheel and tire to the replacement. Either will look nice I do believe! Stay tuned for pics of the bronco build soon! -Rudy
  7. Dare to be different! -Rudy
  8. Thanks guys! I agree, a black wash in the grille would look great. The next one I build will be 4x4. The white walls and bumper stickers were kit items. The wheels, tires, whitewalls , and caps are 5 different pieces, works great that way. The white walls snap into a notch in the tires. Several of my fellow club members have built them as well, one looked GREAT with the grille dechromed, painted white, and had the Chevrolet letters painted. It's a very nice kit, goes together like legos. Was My first two-tone paint job. -Rudy
  9. Just finished up my 1966 Chevy Suburban last night. The only Mods I did were to shorten and remount the drivers side mirror, and to wire the engine using a wired distributor from Morgan Automotive Detail (Madmodeling.com) I think it came out O.K. Thanks,Rudy
  10. Awesome! Modern classic movie How did you do the weathering for the dirt on the windshield, where the wipers wiped the windshield? Did you make half-round masks and airbrush the "dirt" on? Thanks!! Rudy
  11. This is the crazy kind of stuff I would expect to see from the doctor ^! Very imaginative. Cant wait to see the finished product. Rudy
  12. Very nice work! I must get myself one of these kits! Where did you get the photo-etch pars for the fuel system? Rudy
  13. Awesome Build Bernie! And how cool is it for jerry to come on here and give you photos and such. Thats a stand up guy. I have not seen this movie, but it is right up my alley. I am almost done with my traditional-styled 29 Roadster pickup built from the "goodguys" 3 in 1 kit. I like my hot rods fenderless though of course!!! I will update my build thread tonight or tomorrow. I am in a wheelchair and snowed in for sure!!! 12-15" of snow tonight/tomorrow. Snow + wheelchairs = no good! I wish I was born about 1920. P.S. I LOVE your car jerry! Rudy
  14. Wow I am really impressed with your work and the level of detail!! What did you use to make the rust holes in the body? Rudy
  15. No reason why it wouldnt work, you will just have to take the time to let the glue dry between modifications.... I built (and Z'd) a similar frame for a 26 model T sedan I am building.... I built it from some leftover scraps from the original frame, and some rectanguar styrene strips they sell in packs. The key here is only doing a little bit, let it dry, continue.... See attached picture. Also, the flathead engine that can be seen in the upper part of the pic, the headers are made from a chrome parts tree.. (although not finished).... You are only limited by your imagination, and what you have laying around. I see oddball stuff that can be used for modeling all the time! Good Luck! Rudy
