  1. This build is now up to 132 models being built by 137 modelers counting the five two-person teams! And it is now only three days away... this Saturday at noon it kicks off!
  2. Today, the 14th Annual 24 Hour Build has hit 100 confirmed entries! That's awesome! And we still have 11 more days to go for more builders to join in!
  3. Exactly! There is no judging, no contest. The only one you are competing against is yourself!
  4. Built this one last year actually in about 12 hours total. Used quick drying lacquer paints and a dehydrator for everything. It's amazing what you can do in 24 hours if you pick a kit that's fairly simple and don't go crazy modifying it. Try it...it will really give you a challenge!
  5. The 14th Annual 24 Hour Build is less than 3 weeks away. It runs from noon on January 25th to noon on the 26th of January. It always coincides with the 24 Hours of Daytona race. This is where you pick a model and build non-stop for 24 hours either by yourself or with a friend or two.... or more. Make it a party. Have food and drink and just have fun. Most participants build cars but you can build any model you wish. Try it... it will really test your skills! Here is the link to the group page for the build on Facebook..... https://www.facebook.com/groups/774303692944365/
  6. Don't forget fellow builders, the 24 Hours of Daytona is this weekend so that means so is the 24 Hour Model Build! Starts at noon on Saturday and ends at noon on Sunday. Do it alone or with friends but build an entire model in 24 hours! Gary Kulchock started this 13 years ago and it is getting bigger every year! If you decide to take part in the fun, just join the Facebook group and post a message of what model you are building. And read the Pinned Post Announcement for the basic rules and a few articles that contain many tips on how to accomplish a 24 hour build. Here is the link to the build's page.... https://www.facebook.com/groups/1789464754418311/?ref=group_header
  7. Well the 13th Annual 24 Hour Build is almost here. If you haven't participated in this before, give it a shot as it's lots of fun and is a challenge to your abilities! The object is to completely build a model, any model, in the 24 hour period on January 26th and 27th this year from noon to noon. It always coincides with the running of the 24 Hours of Daytona. Most participants build a car model but like I said, any model is fair game. You can do this alone or get together with some other modelers and try to do it as a group with each member building their own model. The originator of the 24 hour build, Gary Kulchock makes a Fotki page with individual folders for everyone's builds. You take photos of your build as you go and post them on the FB group. He then takes them from there and puts them in the folders. It's a real challenge to get a model completely built in just 24 hours but for modelers it's a lot of fun. If you're interested check out the Facebook page here.... https://www.facebook.com/groups/1789464754418311/
  8. Harry passed in April of last year....
  9. It is his birthday today so just thought we could acknowledge our late friend Harry Pristovnik's birthday up in Heaven. He devoted a helluva lot of time and effort into running this entire forum.
  10. Pretty cool! I actually owned a 71 Roadrunner. Mine was Evening Blue but it only had the 340 in it. Thought it was a dog and hated that Carter Thermoquad.
  11. LMAO.... that has NEVER happened to me!
  12. Yeah no worries Buddy... I was just curious... Model looks great. Looking forward to you finishing it and a good photo to put up on the header picture for the Straight Line Modeler FB Group!
  13. Brett...couple of questions.... Is that fuel tank the one that came with the kit? And..do you have a photo of Brutus with a battery in it? I'm curious because I have never seen a Funny Car with a battery in it. As far as I know they were all started with a mechanical starter off the blower drive. I searched and couldn't find anything showing a battery so I was just curious if you had located a pic showing a battery? Not criticizing here at all...just genuinely curious! All the ones I found were like this one showing no battery and quite a differently shaped fuel tank.... Hosted on Fotki
  14. Yeah yeah...I know Da Grump never ran this. But this is my interpretation of what he MIGHT have run IF he was to run one in 1963. This is the new 62 Vette Gasser kit and I built this one during the 8th Annual 24 Hour Build last night. Actually I only worked on it for about 17 hours total building time because the old eye-hand coordination just wasn't there at around 02:30 this morning! So I hit the rack then went out to my regular Sunday morning 8:00 AM breakfast with a friend and also with fellow builder Bernie Gilbow. Got back home and continued around 9:30 and finished at 11:59! This sure as heck is no contest winner but I'm glad I chose this kit for this build because now I'm familiar with it and when I build the next one it will be better...with more time to do things! LOL Painted it white with Krylon Fusion as well as the chassis parts too. Interior was good old testors red enamel paint in the little square jar thinned and sprayed through the airbrush and put in the dehydrator. Decals are Slixx. Bare Metal Foil on the top trim. Straight out of the box...no modifications at all. At first I thought the front end was going to be too high but the crankshaft centerline is actually about 3/4" from the ground so it's well within the class rules! The beginning: Hosted on Fotki During the build. Had the TV on the 24 Hours of Daytona race. Then I had Skype set up with Bernie as we were building early on in the laptop and also the FaceBook page for the build on the main computer. Hosted on Fotki Getting there.....

  15. You can build anything you wish. Doesn't even have to be a car model if you want to do something else.
