  2. until
  3. Dang it, missed my chance...put the banjo steering wheel in the '29 Ford Roadster
  4. Yep, I tried but just couldn't get it to fit right...plus it's really fragile.
  5. Yep, I thought I was posting it "Underglass"...don't know how to change it.
  6. Every time I opened the cupboard, the '29 Ford Model A Roadster 2'n1 kit kept staring at me. So finally I gave up and built it. I had used the channeled chassis, tires and wheels on a previous build, so built the high boy version. Went with Replicas & Miniatures W-8 1/25 Wide Whitewall Tires Big & Little Skinnies w/bias-ply tread, steely wheels and used the kit hub caps. Also added Replicas & Miniatures RH-911 1/25th "Hallock" Style V'ed Windshield. What a beautiful kit! Everything fit and the detail was magnificent. Paint is 1954 Ford H Sea Haze Green from Scalefinishes.

  7. I saw a photo of a RatRod truck with a guitar shaped nose in a magazine. Decided it would be fun to build something like it in 1/25th scale. So here it is...started with the Revell 1941 Chevy PU, chopped and channeled the body, rebuilt the bed, added Replicas & Miniatures fuel tank, installed a Chevy V-6, tires from parts box added to kit wheels and scratch-built the guitar grill. Painted primer red and used Rustall to dirty it up, decals are from Steve.

  8. Inspired by " Gas Monkeys" build of a rear engined Ford Econoline pickup, I decided to build one of my own. Started with a Jimmy Flintstone resin body, scratch built chassis, Ford 428 w/Automatic tranny, resin copy of a V-drive from a boat kit and wheels and tires from parts box. Painted it a Ford Medium Lime Green Metallic from Scalefinishes.

  9. Hello Peter, it's been a long time! I have not been on the forum much, but was glad to see your name pop up again! I will be following this project, I think you sent me this body awhile back. I will have to try and find it. happy modeling... Curt
  10. Porsche - Bernard??? This isn't a Hot Rod... Glad to see you're building a sports car, I will check in now and then to see how you're doing. I've built a couple of these, nice kit for it's age. Getting ready to for GSLXXVII, you need to make the next and last one in 2022! c'ya Buddy
  11. Nice work Tonto... it's nice to see you are no longer "un-hinged", spun maybe...
  12. I've lived in Northern California since 1963 and have no desire ever to leave. Granted it's more expensive living here, but clean air, golf year round, two seasons (wet/dry) and being able to paint almost anytime you want are worth it. And Yes, NorCal and SoCal are two different planets...I'll take San Francisco over Los Angeles anytime!
  13. Yep...looks great in real daylight! I think a few people messed their pants at DSC after seeing it.
  14. Howdy Chris Dang did I really miss this build earlier! I heard you talking to John about the "Spaghetti Bender" during our visit, now I know what younger talking about! If they are up to your standard...I'll give you a set of my 1/16th scale wire wheels at the GSL. c'ya buddy
