    Nice build, great paint work.

    Beautiful job Harry. You sometimes have a very eclectic choice of modeling subjects.

    What a crime trashing a numbers matching Vette. Don't watch the show, that guy Richard reminds me of the shady used car dealer who slaps some Bondo and paint on a junker and asks top dollar. I prefer watching Bitchin' Rides, those guys do some nice work. They do things the right way,not half way.

    Maybe he sticks them on when he parks to prevent door dings. I hate when people can't park right and you need a can opener to get in your car. 
  8. 58 Impala added a post in a topic Are NASCAR kits falling out of favor?   

    I bought a few over the years but never built them (lost interest in building nascar kits). I have tried selling the few I have along with thinning my collection and I can't give them away. About all they're good for is kit bashing for parts.

    Nice work! Love the fender skirts, never would have thought of that.
  10. 58 Impala added a post in a topic Revell 1:25 "Street Machines" Beetle turned Volksrod   

    Sweet! Killer bug, best custom I've seen in a long time.
  11. 58 Impala added a post in a topic Best single year ever?   

    So many great years it's hard to pick just one. I would go with a minimum of three 67,68,69. Those years seem to have left over styling cues from the early 60's and some of the coming changes of the early 70's.
  12. 58 Impala added a post in a topic 1967 Ford Mustang GT FINALLY done!   

    Very nice work. I've always liked the 67-68 body style, its one of my favorites.
  13. 58 Impala added a post in a topic As we get older our sight diminishes. Moving up to 1/16th scale might be an answer. Your picks . . .   

    I invested in an Optivisor years ago, I have gone to the next power lense since then. Lol. But that's Ok, I refuse to give in to being older. I've got too many 1/24-25 kits to build as well as a few 1/43. Spend the extra to buy the Optivisor they have glass lenses which don't scratch like the cheaper versions which have cheaper plastic lenses.
  14. 58 Impala added a post in a topic Well done Lewis Hamilton!   

    That was a really good race, really enjoyed it. Lewis is not my favorite driver but he did earn this championship.
  15. 58 Impala added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    Ordered the new Galaxie 47 Chevy coupe from Modelroundup yesterday and picked up a Foose 65 Impala today  from Hobby Lobby with a coupon. ( can never have too many Impala kits.)
