    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?

    This is the crazy kind of stuff I would expect to see from the doctor ^! Very imaginative. Cant wait to see the finished product.

    Very nice work! I must get myself one of these kits! Where did you get the photo-etch pars for the fuel system?

    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!

    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?

    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!

    Since the OP's question has already been answered, I will not bother. But I WOULD like to say that I LOVE the paint scheme on your 55 Longbox! My 1:1 Mustang is that color of gray. I also like the look of those wheels on there, will make a nice restomod.

    LOVE the Cyclones. Saw a BAAAADDDD Black 1:1 66 on ebay a few weeks back, I wanted it! My cousin has a 70 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler 429 CJ, 4 spd. Does anyone make a kit of this model? It is a pretty rare animal in the 1:1 world. I will be watching your build. What color are you thinking?

    I am really enjoying this build! I had a van not to long ago, and have thought of recreating it in Plastic..... To Add to the fun it was a wheelchair -lift van, as I am a paraplegic. I have often thought of building a cool old 60's flat-front ford or dodge van and putting a wheelchair lift in it... And would like to do the same in 1:1! Thanks for the motivation, and good luck

  11. Rudy added a post in a topic Revell/Model King 1/25 '50 Austin Gasser   

    Looking forward to the release of this kit!!!! Awesome work on both kits, and the included decal sheet is worth the purchase price by itself, I agree. I always get excited when I see gasser kits!

    Very neat idea for a diorama!!!!!!!!!!! I've always wanted to make one of these with a shell of a car!

    Just flat-out amazing cranky!!!!!!!!!!! How long did it take you to get good at the weathering? I need to try some of this, I love "rattier" looking trucks and cars...... Awesome weathering, look so realistic with the decals and roof rack!!!!!! Awesome!!!

  14. Rudy added a post in a topic "Lil Red MotorHome"   

    Very cool idea!!!!!!! I love it! I will also be watching this build. I like anything out of the ordinary, especially trucks, vans too. Just need to build some now for myself..... I do have a jimmy flintstone resin chopped 65 dodge van, for the little red wagon kit as a donor, but the little red wagon kit is too nice not to build on its own, so I will have to buy another......
