  1. Revell 1960 Impala.....

    Beautiful - brings back memories. I had a '60 over 50 years ago, but not an Impala.
  2. Monogram '41 Lincoln Continental

    It isn't a muscle car!
  3. I strongly recommend any two-part catalyzing body putty (I use Bondo professional glazing and spot putty - it comes in a tube with a small tube of hardener). You can control how fast it hardens by how much hardener you mix in, it is softer than styrene when hard (easier to file/sand to shape) and does not shrink. Use non-catalyzed only for very small or thin work.
  4. 1947 Chevy Aerosedan

    Great build!
  5. Sorry - should have checked. The A/N engines may have used the LT5 as a starting point. Hard to find facts on this.
  6. BTW, the kit version of the LT5, or Aurora/Northstar, is available in the Shelby Series 1.
  7. 1956 Custom Nomad - MADE IN BRAZIL

    Exceptional!
  8. I think this is in several NSX kits.

  10. Unusual 'vette

    Maserati 3500 gt, customized.This kit, or the Monogram reissue, for a starting point. Or a Ferrari 250 Berlinetta. There was also a similar 250 with a straighter rear fender. Or for a real challenge.
  11. Ferrari 330P4, Fujimi,1/24

    Beautiful car and model! http://www.italianhorses.net/DB/330-512-Monza-Dino.htm#330 - 365 - 412 provides a detailed list of 330P4 kits, curtesy of Alex Kustov. The Union kit is still available.
  12. 1968 VW Hover Bug

    Excellent in all respects.
  13. 1960 Chevy "Hard Luck" Impala

    Excellent! Love that weathered chassis.
  14. Citroën 2CV

    Well done!
  15. Experimental WagonRod

    You've made this look very realistic, not an easy task. Your work on the grille and wheels, wood grain and raising the headlights all help.
