  1. '37 Ford Coupe done up '60s style

    Why not put a dual coil Spaulding Flamethrower magneto in there for some true '60s interest?
  2. The Turbine

    That magazine in the video is an article about detailing the model car. So there is either a kit of this beast or an article about how to create it...
  3. Info on Monogram/Revell 69 Ford Talladega

    EZ tack can also be used to check assembly and don't forget on those Torinos, the winshield trim goes all the way across the A pillar.
  4. Pantera anyone?

    I have the light blue one as well but don't remember the manufacturer. I think it was Gunze. One thing for sure is that it is not the Marui as I have that one as well. My Marui was molded in black IIRC and had the cannonball run (ish...) box. I played with the idea of making the blue one a funny car at one time. Glad I didn't though... Still want to take the 351c from the '70 Mustang, the gearbox from the Series 1 and do a bit of scratching to make a full detail one. Just gotta flip the gearbox (from what I heard).
  5. Photoetched drama

    Yeah, try explaining that to the wife...
  6. Information on Monogram's Exotics Series

    IIRC, The Monogram Cobra was a 289 (or a 260?) wire wheeled car. Also, loved those Monogram cars for those Pirelli tires! I remember them being the lowest profile tires you could get at the time and once the back fill was trimmed, most wheels fit them.
  7. 1:25 scale kits with figures ?

    Wasn't there a Chevette that had a couple of figures with the road rally setups? Found it. Stupid expensive for a couple of figures... I bought a set of Prieser G Scale female figure "kits" where you get a few sprues of arms, legs, torsos and heads so you can put together your own dream girl. The good part is all the parts are pretty much designed to go with each other so you are not limited to the figure's pose. The bad part (or good depending on your personal preference) is that they have no clothes on... There is also a male version out there too. Other than that, I have found a few others in toy aisles over the years (like Homies).
  8. Balancing (too many?) hobbies/life?

    And I thought I was the only one spread across multiple hobbies! I gots one wife and one ex-wife but they are the same person (long story) Three kids, two grandkids. One kid's a teacher, middle one is in last year of pharmacy school and just got engaged, third is a sophmore on the varsity swim team One job Three houses (two are rentals) and the associated maintenance on those Models (cars and some others) RC vehicles Fishing Cooking Light gardening Halloween propmaking and haunted garage setup 1:1 scale cars (maintenance on 4 and project '68 Torino) Used to collect comics, cards, diecasts & a few other bits and pieces but now in the process of liquidating a lot of that. And we have a pretty active friend and family life full of birthdays, graduations, retirements, marriages, dinners, concerts, trips both near an far, camping trips, Fiesta events, shows, movies, etc... When I actually get some time to myself the only thing I tend to do is turn on the tv and fall asleep...
  9. What do you drive?

    I got this one late last year. 2014 Taurus SHO with the Power Package. 365 HP twin turbo EcoBoost and AWD. She likes to run. Here she is playing in the rain and embarrassing a few of them.
  10. Have you guys seen one of these before?

    A buddy of mine in High School used to drive one every once-in-a-while. Seats were fixed and they were short so I 6'1" rode with my forehead against the roof... Lots of fun though; rolling up under the school bus since the front was so low...
  11. 69 Mach1 interior in 1/43

    Check out a sewing department for some glass headed pins. I saw some this weekend that were rather small.
  12. New To Me Kits From Model Show

    I recognize several of those kits as you picked em up from my table. Glad to see them go to a good home!
  13. Whoops! Heat and plastic, not a good mix.

    I had used the lightbulb method a few times to speed up drying but then tried it on a thin, heller 1/43 body with enamel paint. Checking it the next day looked like it was t-boned in an accident...
  14. Lite-Weight Race Car Trailer

    Going to have to remember this if and when I get back to the Executor and decide to build the truck & trailer too. The pics show a very small trailer such as this though I think a bit shorter, seeing a cobra on the trailer you're building. Thanks for the ride-along!
  15. '68 Shelby GT-500 (20 Feb - Under Glass)

    Looking great so far. One suggestion for the front suspension to make room for those wide motors is to do what many in the 1:1 world do and do a tubular IFS swap. Then you can remove the shock towers and put in a big motor. You can get the parts from some of the street-rod kits or even an old white metal R&D Unique IFS setup. I do like your 1:1 coupe and noticed the relocated battery, solinoid and all the other under-hood clutter. Looks clean especially with that nifty Monte Carlo bracket! When you go four link, are you going to mini-tub?
