  1. DeTomasa Pantera with engine??

    70 Mach I for the engine, Shelby Series 1 for the ZF, scratch or source the rest from similar running gear.
  2. Some talk on car movies.

    One of my pet peeves in these movies is when the primary characters in their souped up cars can't outrun something mundane. In one of the Expendables movies, Stalone's character in his souped up 50's Ford pickup hot rod can't outrun a busted-up S15 Blazer. Drive Angry was pretty cool in the vehicle department and had William Fichtner as the Accountant whom made the movie a favorite for me. "You know what this badge means, right? Federal Bureau of get-the-f...-out-of-my-way."
  3. Question about wires on a Lindberg 1938 custom van

    I added plug wires to the Smoothster and you can't really see them once the kit is complete. Not a good time spent/value added trade off.
  4. Bring Out Your Dead... Long Stalled Models

    Considering how much time I've been able to devote to modeling the last few months, all my projects fall under the "stalled" category!
  5. There was a second built called the Bordinat Cobra.
  6. Monogram Ferrari GTO 1/24 Scale the 5 year build

    Hopefully all you paint woes are in the past. On the bright side, you can build the first body with the second chassis as a before/barn find/in need of a major rebuild!
  7. '37 Ford Coupe done up '60s style

    Why not put a dual coil Spaulding Flamethrower magneto in there for some true '60s interest?
  8. 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...
  9. 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.
  10. 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).
  11. Photoetched drama

    Yeah, try explaining that to the wife...
  12. 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.
  13. 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).
  14. 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...
  15. 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.
