  1. This is the Revell 1/24 Porsche 918 Spyder. Beautiful car...great kit. With 50+ decals the kit detail is amazing...bordering on absurd. Most of that awesome detail is unseen in the final product. Oh well...learned a lot. As if this wasn't enough, I also picked up a P/E detail kit and window mask. Most of those details are also unseen. But I had fun playing with them. My only adjustment was to open up the side vents behind the doors for better airflow. The body is finished with Splash's version of Mazda's Soul Red Crystal. The top and spoiler are finished in Splash Pepper Black Metallic. Interior is finished with Zero Black Leather and Gloss Black.
  2. Wow! Still looks daunting. But I downloaded this pic and stored it for future reference. Maybe I'll try it one day and, if successful, replace the wheels on my existing builds. Thanks for sharing. I split my hood with a diamond cutting wheel on a Dremel two years ago. Turns out that was the easy part. Tried the MCG hinges Bob used...major fail. It took me two more years to find a hinge close to scale that would work within my skillset.
  3. Wow...I'm guessing doing a hinged hood back then was a lot harder. So many more products and tools have been introduced even since Bob shared his Duesey. Nicely done!
  4. Bugatti Fan...I know that article well. I've been trying to emulate it for five years. This is as close as I'm going to get. No way I'll be replacing wheel spokes! Monogram did both a Packard and a Boat Tail Duesy in Metal.
  5. 58 Impala --- yes the kit comes with exhaust pipes made of big springs.
  6. Thanks for all the kind words! sjordan2 asked if I had to cut into the metal for the hood section. No. The hood section is a metal frame that accepts a solid plastic chrome piece that simulates the screen. I cut the faux screen away leaving just a plastic frame and added the PE screen.
