    Porsche 962 air scoops
    Does anyone know where I can find the air scoops used by the Porsche 962s that ran in IMSA back in the day? Thanks

    You nailed that paint job! Really nice build. I watched The Snake run this car at Dragway 42 in Ohio back in the day.

    I also love FEDs. And there's something about the ones with the frame rails exposed that I really like. Nice job.

    I'd have agree with the comments already posted. Great job and wonderful photography!! What color blue did you use?

    I have this kit and have the build on my radar, this will be very helpful. Thanks for sharing your project, I'm looking forward to watching this. Where did you get the wheels?

    I know another resin caster that does business in a similar fashion.

    Art, do the guys over at the Open Wheel forum know what you're up to? Every project I've watched you work on is amazing, in any scale. This one is no exception.

    I've dealt with Gary and from my experience I have nothing but good things to say about him. His kits don't quite measure up to Lance Sellers or Chris Etzel, but they build up to a nice finished product. His instructions leave a little to be desired but any experienced builder can figure them out. Great guys on that forum too.

    Great job on both. I love the way these builds bring back the past and preserve some of the history of the sport.

    Drew, I love your older sprint cars. Where did you get the tires? I'd love to do some older USAC type dirt cars, but tires for these are hard to find. Thanks.

    This is one of my all time favorite Porsches. You've done an amazing job. Thanks for sharing the process, it was very helpful.

    If not for the panel thickness this could have easily passed for the real car. Truly outstanding work

    Thanks for the response Jeff. There definitely is an ebb and flow to the creative bug. I'll go for long periods of time when I don't want to build anything and then sometimes I'll have several projects going at once. I do hope Ismael is doing well.

    I received my kit this week and I know others have too. I think Nic is digging his way out of his backlog

    What ever happened to Ismael?
    I just re-visited a WIP on the GTP Corvette done by a forum member named Ismael. He's a great builder and was a frequent contributor to the forum. Whatever happened to him? Anyone know?
