  1. That turned out REALLY well!! Nice work!!
  2. Supermodifieds (or supers) are VERY regional, limited to about 3 areas, Northern NY (Oswego area) and the NE, Northern Ohio (Toledo to Cleveland-primarily Lorain, OH area) and the NW (Primarily Idaho, Northern Utah, Eastern Wash. and Easter Oregon) and each area 's supers are unique to their area. Oswego and the NE are considered the most active and competitive. Many consider the Oswego supers to be the natural evolution of the Indy roadster. There is a 200 lap race run annually at Oswego that is considered the Indy 500 of supermodified racing and most of the cars run big block engines, many up to (I believe) 500 CI. Spooky fast!! You are off to a great start and I look forward to seeing how you progress.
  3. Here are some additional pictures of the Clare Sanders driven Dodge Demon Ramchargers car.
  4. I've always been big fan of the Ramchargers team. I've built 3 of their most successful funny cars. The Dodge Dart is the original MPC kit and is 51 years old. The body and decals got damaged in our last move, so I have done some work to it in the last 10 years, but otherwise the car is original. The Dodge Demon is a converted Revell Ed McCollough kit that I built in the mid 90's. Unfortunately, the windshield on this car got damaged in a move shortly after I built it. The Dodge Challenger is a Model King kit I built about 7 years ago. I can take and post additional pictures of each car if there is any interest.
  5. I guess my answer is "It depends". And I answer that way because it is a function of how the kit is engineered. Sometimes I find it easier to paint the parts separately and then assemble them, other times I put it all together and paint it as a unit. Be aware that it is sometimes difficult to get paint coverage after you assemble it all as the roll cage can make it difficult to get paint in to all the locations. Sometimes I assemble the cage as a subassembly and paint it and the chassis side by side, then assemble. Sorry to not give you a direct, concise answer, but this is how I do it.
  6. Mr. Ingram, I tried sending you a PM, but it says that you cannot accept messages. I appreciate your generous offer. Let me know if you can find the part!! I will send you a check or I can pay via PayPal for the part and shipping if you find it. Thank you so MUCH!!
  7. Sir, I have tried to send you a PM, but it keeps telling me you cannot accept messages? May be something I'm doing wrong??
  8. I know this is a huge long shot, but I was recently gifted a JoHan Petty Superbird kit that is complete EXCEPT for the drivers side rear wing support. Would anyone have one they would be willing to sell or could someone that has that kit in their stash make a resin copy? Can anyone recommend somewhere I could get one from an aftermarket supplier? Any help, guidance or direction would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
  9. That turned out beautiful! Great craftsmanship!!
  10. Beautiful work Mr. Laski!! It turned out great.
  11. Amazing work Mr. Laski!! How in Heavens name do you paint the numbers and the names on the gauges?? There is no way my hands are are steady enough to do that, and haven't been for 30 years. Same with the eyesight to see it! Impressive work sir!!
  12. The only reason I built it with the long headers was because that is the way the real car is at the Garlics Museum. Since I had photos, it was easier for me to make sure I got it close to right.
