    I had to switch to Windows 10 browser over the weekend. Now I notice several Photobucket pics not showing up here- just their standard "Ooops!" disclaimer. I hope it's them, and not my browser. Windows 7 was down to almost a crawl, none of my attempts to correct it worked.

    I would think a '51 Merc would be a given. There has been a saturation of the '49. The back of the '51 just looks so much better, IMHO.

    That's a really nice model! The top rated minivan by Consumer Reports.

    And the winner of the internet for today is..... Jesse! 
    Tell him what he won, Bob!

    How did he get that so quick? It was announced maybe two weeks ago(?)

    Absolutely blown away that the Mustang was kitted without headlights. Intended age bracket don't mean squat- of course car guys of all ages want scale Mustangs. Versus the cost of including them? I get the whole "simple kit, easy for young builders" thing. But to ignore such a basic part, that's like asking half your customer base to ignore it. Because if I didn't know about guys like Frank casting the parts, I would say "no".
    It's just marketing common sense. Two little clear parts; or the lack of, kill the look of the finished product. Where is the marketing common sense here? When I walk in that hobby store, there are literally hundreds of choices before me. The 'stang kit? "No headlights? No, thanks".

    Such a strange occurrence- wheels melting from a chemical reaction with the tires.
    Has anyone ever tried wrapping the outside of the rim with BMF foil?

    Jim, this one is rock solid awesome! Great styling touches especially to the front and back. The under hood mods just reflects what the 1:1 manufacturers are doing. Not unusual at all.

    If you please, how did you do the black border around the orange? It's all so good!

    Clean, & well maintained. Your '65 is sweet looking.
    I owned four 'vairs. A daily driver '65 Monza 110HP auto 4-door in maroon w/ wires & tri spinners. A '61 Greenbriar that was kind enough to make it it to my house before it died. A '63 Spyder Coupe that just had a full mechanical resto. My plan was to do the body. And, the sad little early model Monza that was found in an animal barn. No floor. They should have carted me off in a straight jacket. Eventually became a parts car. We almost set the chicken barn on fire trying to get it to run. We were throwing frozen chunks of snow at the engine to knock down the flames.
    Ahhh! Good times!

    Chuck, another awesome Hudson! 
    I found a car that looks similar. What a comparison!

    Very nice. You may want to check ink levels in your printer. Looks like you are running low.

    "Bought it on Friday, finished it on Sunday." About the same amount of time it takes me to feel comfortable enough to glue together the engine halves without screwing up a sequence. 
    That is an awesome Hudson! Really like the new roof.

    No I haven't, Brett. But I do like the idea. Hope to get on that this evening.
