  1. '57 Chevy 150 Utility Sedan

    Nice clean build. Good job.
  2. Photos from Detroit NNL *PICS*

    A lot of nice builds. Thanks for sharing!
  3. Cool beater build. Good job weathering. The bungee cord holding the hood shut is a nice touch.
  4. Steve Kohler Star Models

    I just bought a resin kit from Steve for the first time last week. It's a good kit. He answers emails promptly and you can pay via Paypal. I would definitely do business with him again.
  5. 55 Chevy Drag Car

    Nice build.
  6. '58 Fairlane 500 Semi-Custom! Finished!

    Pretty sharp!
  7. What did you see on the road today?

    Last week I was driving home in my 2014 Chevy Impala when I see up ahead a 1958 Chevy Impala coupe in the lane next to me. It took a few minutes to catch up and pull along side the 1958 Impala. I wanted to see the current generation Impala next to the first Impala. Pretty cool!
  8. 32 Ford Custom Vicky

    Pretty neat. Good job making all of the parts from different kits work well together.
  9. 1955 Chevy Bel Air

    Cool Bel air. Nice color combo.
  10. 1965 Lincoln Continental Navigator

    It came out nice.
  11. 1969 Camaro RS convertible

    Pretty sharp. Good job detailing the engine and interior.
  12. New items appearing on Hobby Lobby shelves

    Cool. I am going to have to drop by soon.
  13. Help with Chrome Headlights?

    I learned this technique from Art Anderson years ago from the online forum of the other magazine and used it on an AMT 1965 Pontiac Grand Prix with chrome headlights. I detailed the headlights by coating them with 5 minute epoxy glue. I mixed a small batch on a piece of cardboard and coated each headlight with the glue using a toothpick. I had work fast because after two minutes the glue becomes tacky and stringy and you then risk getting glue strings on the non headlight areas of the part when you transfer it with the toothpick from the cardboard to the headlight. I would recommend that you mask with tape the non headlight areas of the chrome part. After two minutes I would mix a new batch. Each batch would be good for one or two headlights. This technique gives the headlights a decent depth that is better than chrome. It is not as good as a clear headlight lens but it is better than nothing. I would recommend practicing on a spare part before trying this technique.
  14. Model T Hearse

    Thanks for the picture. I was thinking of converting AMT's 1923 Model T delivery van into a hearse.
  15. Grab those bargains off those racks... (HL sale)

    I went to the Hobby Lobby in Morgan Hill on 3/3/18 and all of the model car kits on clearance were sold out which is unusual for this store. It takes a while for clearance kits to sell out. I guess they were priced to sell.
