  1. Well, sheesh! I'm so used to seeing them relocated under the bed...
  2. I'm so excited for this kit! Great design, great kitbashing opportunities. I just went through the instructions online. Did anyone else notice the lack of a fuel tank? Kinda funny.
  3. No. I means that every other post will be "Why didn't the make it stock?"
  4. Definitely has a Factory Five feel to it. Looks great so far!
  5. Thanks for all the kind words everyone. He's already started to think about the next build. His 7 yr old older brother is also. His next one will be more independent. Hopefully we can do a snap together or something so he can handle it all on his own. That is, if I can resist "helping", LOL.
  6. Some final shots: I posted in Under Glass here.
  7. Link to the On the Workbench thread. Here are the photos of our completed build. It won the "Black and Orange" mini-contest out our MCMA meeting on Sunday. Thanks to evilbenny for giving us the kit. Here's the Caped Crusader at the meeting:
  8. I started building a 1989 Batmobile with my 5 year old son. The kit was given to us by evilbenny, a fellow member of the Metroplex Car Modeler's Association (MCMA). The kit was missing the wheels and tires, which were generously supplied by some members of this forum. Thanks again to midknightprowler and afx for you help. Here's the kit: Here's what we've done so far - glued in the interior and painted the wheels: The boys like the gold-ish wheels shown on the side panel of the box, so we painted the wheels Model Master bronze and will black-wash it next. They don't want to paint anything, so it'll be faster. At one point I was scraping off some flash and my son said "Daddy, I don't want it to be too pretty" meaning I was taking too long, LOL. When we get ready to build he'll go get everything and carry it to the kitchen table, which is big enough for us to all have access to the kit while building. He's pretty motivated.
  9. You could also use a tackle box, there are a ton of different configurations...

    There is actually a Jag type IRS in the Revell 26 Sedan Delivery Kit, if you would rather kitbash it...
  11. Evergreen makes plastic in various shapes and sizes. It's pretty available in the US. You could also use Plastruct. You could also use pieces of sprue.
  12. Looks great! I'd go with the Supremes, personally. Actually, I need to get a set of those for my Aerosedan.
  13. Thanks for the info. I was going through my kits looking at which engines I wasn't planning to use, thinking about what might be good to back up the C5 and C6 LS's that I plan to swap into various projects. Would the transmissions from the 06 based Mustangs be good? They look pretty nice, detail wise and I don't plan to use those engines now that the Coyote 5.0 is out.
  14. So, it's not a good Trans to mate to an LS7?
  15. Can someone tell me what is the transmission that comes in the AMT Phantom Vickie kit? Thanks.
