    Well, I got word today that my offer to purchase was accepted by the vendor. Just have to go and pay for her and start getting the paperwork together for Canada Customs, then figure out how to get her home.

    Thanks for the feed-back guy's. The car comes with the original steelies and hubcaps as well as the large center part of the grill. The wheels that are on it now are from a Buick Wildcat. I had the vendor email me a shot of the build plate, and the colours that are on it now are the factory colours it was built with. The colours are Bronze and Polar White, although it looks like cream to me. If I do get the car the first thing I'm going to look for are a set of rear wheel skirts.

    My next modeling project... Maybe.
    Along with my passion for building model cars, I'm also in to 1:1 cars. I'm big into Oldsmobile's and I've come across this old girl. Shes a 1955 Holiday 88 2 Dr, with a 324 cid with a 2 barrel carb and a 4 speed automatic. The cars from Arizona and is rust free and solid. The motor needs a bit of TLC, but it runs good and drives very well for a 63 year old car. The only thing that is off about this car is the colours. The two tone Brown and Cream needs to go. The next time I go to see the seller I'm going to take a photo of the build plate and go on line and decode the numbers and see if the colours that are on her are correct .If all goes to plan, I should have her in my garage by mid October and get some engine work done over the winter so she'll be ready for the cruise season next spring.

    I think that it has potential., it just need a bit of refinement in a few places. Interior looks nice.

    Not a Hammond B3, but you could pump out some rather cool jazz on that thing.

    My wife still say's that I've gone to play with my toys. I always shoot back that at lest I have a hobby, unlike her father who's hobby was smoking and drinking and just being an all round jackass. So, I have zero support from family.

    There is some really nice collectibles up for bids. But as Mr. Obsessive said, I need more kits like a hole in my head. 
  9. kitbash1 added a post in a topic Ferrari 333SP by Perry's Resin, wow!   

    Yes, he did master the whole kit. He also turned the aluminum wheels. I think he cast the white metal parts as well, but I'm not sure on that one. I have two of these kits. One to build and one to maybe sell one day. I also have one of his 962 trans-kits as well, which he also did the masters for.

    Reliable Resin = Caveat Emptor.  Let the buyer beware...

  14. kitbash1 added a post in a topic cutting resin question??   

    You can use the back of a #11 blade just like a plastic body, or you can use a scribing tool . But ( there's always a but ) you need to go slowly and lightly  with resin. Too fast and a heavy hand will cause problems.

    I have never had any problems with the Hypo cement. Maybe you left the top off for to long.
