  1. Share the Love?

    I've had multiple models at the same show selected to be photographed and then later show up in the same contest coverage article in MCM. It was the first model show (non-comp NNL) that I had ever participated in. Photographer had no idea who I was, nor did anyone else. I don't think it's anything more than he walked around the tables and put a card next to what caught his eye. I was flattered that he thought enough of any of my models to photograph them. That being said, does favoritism and the "buddy system" happen? Definitely! That's life.
  2. Just a quick run at Monograms "Early Iron Series "

    Weren't the '39 Chevy Coupe and Sedan Delivery in the series, too?
  3. Old MPC / AMT '28 Model A todor Sedan Rumored to come back

    I've seen that before, love it! Here's as far as I got on my project but at least I started doing something with one of these...
  4. Old MPC / AMT '28 Model A todor Sedan Rumored to come back

    For as excited as people get over this kit why doesn't it get built more often? Too sacred? I bought a mint complete one a few years back for about $70 then promptly whipped out the razor saw and chopped the top 4 scale inches. It's only plastic... Now, if it actually came to pass that the Sedan body was produced again and (most logically included as a bonus option in the Woody / RPU kit) I'd definitely grab a couple for hot rod projects.
  5. New Revell '32 Ford 5-window coupe

    And who knows if German's know how to use a measuring tape?! Or is it tape measure? It's just all so confusing...

    It was also just completely restored for comedian / vantriliquist Jeff Dunham who has an impressive collection.
  7. R.I.P.

    I wonder if there is a clinical name for a tape-measure fetish???
  8. New Forum Rules

    Maybe the forum needs a "Safe Section" where sensitive people can go get virtual hugs just in case they accidentally encounter one of those words before a moderator can erase them?
  9. Positives to come from the Revell Deal?

    I don't think you guys are giving enough credit for interest in American cars & trucks. There is a thriving segment of interest, particularly vintage vehicles, in Germany, France, UK and the Scandanavian counties. On a weekly basis vintage cars located in the US are being sold to these countries and going on a big boat ride. Japan is another huge buyer right now. These people are hungry for American culture and are well aware of what's going on here in the States. In a lot of ways, they are doing it better and more hardcore than we are.
  10. T.R.O.G. style '30 roadster-updated 4/9 NSRA pick!!!

    Man, this turned out awesome! The weathering makes it look like it's been raced a few years in a row and they didn't clean the salt water spray off. I really like the wheel and tire combo and the splash aprons. What's next?
  11. 30 model a coupe

    Nice! Looks really neat with the roadsters Buick engine and I like the color scheme.
  12. Johnny Cash Hot Rod - INTAKE HELP

    Very cool! Digging the Red Ram and cut down Chevy rear section. Are you going to rework that hard top to fit? That would probably look awesome.
  13. Revell 32 5 window Coupe

    Just not around here. Haven't seen that guy post here in a couple of years. Another cool wheel and tire set that would look awesome are from the Lil Coffin show rod by Monogram. Similar rear wheels and whitwall slicks with matching front wheels and skinny whitewall tires.
  14. Revell 32 5 window Coupe

    Fantastic chop! Too bad Dr. Cranky isn't still around, he'd be all over those frame rails covered in watch parts. Since you don't seem confident with the front wheels & tires I'd suggest something else. Did the rears come from the Boothill Express? How about the front 12-spokes from that kit?
  15. Car shows on the tube

    I love Street Outlaws. Those guys are the real deal. Chuck is definitely my favorite. Cheif and Shawn have a weekly podcast "The Cheif And Shawn Show" that's fun to listen to. Great insight into their world and great stories. I also very much enjoy Fast & Loud. Never missed an episode. The build quality and depth of their projects has gone way up from where they started. The '34 Coupe they recently built with guest Brian Bass is phenomenal! Love him or hate him but Richard Rawlings is doing something right. He's grown that business and brand like crazy in the last 6 years. Their name is on everything. If he had a low key personality none of that growth would have happened. Who cares if he doesn't work on any of the cars? That was never intended to be his roll from the onset. He's the business man and promoter. My Dad doesn't work on the cars that come through our shop, either. That's what I'm paid to do. He does the hard part - running the business! Now I'm checking out Aaron Kaufman's new show and so far, so good. For those that don't like Fast & Loud his show is (so far) much more straight forward.
