  1. Another one bites the dust uh

    I used to only buy models manufactured in the USA and then only from local privately owned hobby shops that provide birth control for their employees. But It has come to my attention that the manufacture and construction of model cars is harmful to the environment and I no longer can in good conscience build another model. I beg you all Please stop buying and building models. No model ever feed a child.
  2. 59 El Camino, kit questions

    Hello: I picked up a glue bomb el Camino This thing was really glued together well. To well and had to be broken and cut apart. I have it in primer and working on wheels and tires ect. I need parts most importantly a hood. Will the hood from other 59 kits fit on this elCamino. This might be an AMT kit? I'm looking for something used and cheap but haven't seen much and would like to enlarge my search if other hoods will fit. Thanks, Merk

    I really enjoyed seeing this one. Thanks, Merk
  4. 50s Finned Boat Project

    A few pictures from early in the build. Started with a chunk of maple left over from a guitar build and removed everything but a finned boat. The side trim is .040 plasic gluded on with JB weld then the whole thing is covered with resin. After the resin cures a couple coats of primer sanding between each coat.
  5. Hello: From a block of maple to a 50s finned boat. Bodywork is done. Primer is on. I'm leaning towards using the outboard. Boat models are cool. Merk

    Just as I thought, there is more interest in darma than MODEL CAR

  9. A couple of pictures of the 22JR dragster build. The roadster is painted and only needs a few more parts to be done. The rail is now in primer. The frames looked so good I almost skipped the bodies, now I like the bodies on the frames. This is not an exact copy of Tony's cars and I might change the colors and decals a bit. Thanks, Merk
  10. Hello: Picked up a couple new double kits. Started on the boat already. The upper deck area has a woodgrain molded in much like I often see on pickup truck bed floors. Any suggestions on how to finsh this area? Thanks, Merk
  11. Hi Guys; New project. This 55 Nomad will be a tow vehicle for my growing fleet of boats and dragsters. Paint was sprayed over the weekend and still needs to be polished a little. The ride height is not finished yet. Here are a few pictures from a test fit. Thanks, Merk
