      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    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

    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.

    50s Finned Boat Project
    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.

    Added a chopped down radiator shell to the roadster and sprayed some blue on the rail.

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

    Dragster Progress Report
    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

    Starting A Couple New Projects
    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

    55 Nomad Towing A Dragster
    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
