      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Hi all time for an update. The first pics shows the engine with a fresh coat of paint and a few details added along with the automatic trans, in the second pic I cleaned up most of the flash from the body, I think it cleaned up pretty good.
    The third pic shows that the hood was warped, I tried the hot water method several times but it didn't work for me, the fourth pic shows how much better the hood looks after I straighten it. The hood will still need some work an the engine details are just started. All comments welcome.

    Thanks for the comments guys, I should have an update in a few days. I got a few details on the engine and a base coat of paint, I will post after I do a little clean up on the resin body.

    No way I could improve on what has been said so far, all I can say is I love it, well done Harry.

    Outstanding finish as I new it would be, there is nothing I don't like about this model, it is always a pleasure to see any model you have built.

    1972 Pontiac Ventura


    Hi guys been a long time since I posted a car build, here we go with a 1972 Pontiac Ventura. The first pic is of the Jimmy Fintstone resin body in it's raw state nothing done to it yet. The second pic is the engine as you can see I used several different kits to assemble it so far, the block, heads and oil pan are from the old 1969 firebird, the intake and fuel pump are from the newer Revell 68 firebird and the water pump and timing cover are from the 79 trans am kit. I would have liked to use the entire Revell engine but all I had were a few parts. Should be an interesting build, all comments welcome.
