  1. Hello: I enjoyed your car and story. Thank You
  2. When I was a kid we would take our Eldon wood burning set and melt plastic on to old model cars and than crash them into each other demo derby style. If only I had one of these .https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Remco-Clyde-s-Car-Crusher-ORIGINAL-BOX-ONLY-No-Toy-Included/274372192580?_trkparms=aid%3D1110004%26algo%3DSPLICE.COMP%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20200423103423%26meid%3Dd31b55ee62ab4a84aabf2ee87e1ef52f%26pid%3D100011%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D392804648133%26itm%3D274372192580%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3Ddefault%26brand%3DRemco&_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850
  3. Hello: Thanks for the info and interest. That's it. Not surprised this is a imaginary buggy, it has a cartoon quality to it. I have a few vw buggies built and often search for dune buggy on ebay and these have never come up before so I try again after seeing your responses searching for Bo Weevil and there it is a brand new unbuilt Bo Weevil. I hit buy it now and both are on there way. I will post some kit pictures after they arrive Here is another pic from ebay listing Merk
  4. Hello: Just bought this buggy off Ebay. Never seen this kit before. It has a Corvair engine. Any info? Most buggy kits I've seen are copies of real buggy's. Anyone see this in 1:1 Feel free to discus any buggy interests. Thanks Merk
  5. Hello: Super Nice Work. The proportions are perfect. I'm going to use your inspiration and get to work on some of my own stuff. Thanks for posting. Merk
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. I really enjoyed seeing this one. Thanks, Merk
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. Added a chopped down radiator shell to the roadster and sprayed some blue on the rail.
