    I may be inspired to finish mine now.  Been stalled for a couple of years til I found direction.  Seeing yours and going through this replica stock phase I'm in, that may be just the ticket for the next one.  Beautiful work.

    Thanks!  I've hit a "stock" phase right now.  Loving building the showroom stocks as much as possible.  I bet the Beechwood looks great.

    You are on a restoration before I finished mine.  not sure why mine stalled but it's been over 10 years and 3 moves and 2 wives I guess since I last worked oon it.  Wonder where it is?  It will turn up again...  lol   GReat work, as usual.

    Testors did one a bunch of years back.  not sure whose it was originally.  It was a San Fran car I think.  not streamlined.

    Ebay is such a rip.  I post 1/18 diecasts on there and lucky to get 2 or 3 bids for $20.  But some "SOLD" listings for same thing show $100+ sales.  WTH?  I know the stuff isn't "hot" anymore, but still...  you can post it for whatever BIN you want.... I'm sure they'd take that money if someone clicked it...  I would.

    Nice! I love these kits.  Loved watching the real ones run at the CamelGT races back in the 80s.   Living close to RJRs plant in NC, there was always someone with free tix to races at Charlotte.  The Marches, these, the Jag, oh my.  The Red Lobster car was my favorite paint.  I think it was a March.

    Oh sweet.  Like my "Dadillac" was a tribute, I'll have to get one of these to represent moms 72.  Yes I know they are different, but what the heck, I can paint it same colors and enjoy it.  It was about same color as Dave Van's Elliot car.  That sickening light blue with blue metallic vinyl interior.  Mom's was a plain old - not a Gran Torino.  But did have the 351 Windsor.  It will look good with my Dadillac, my wife's 74 Maverick.  Bring on the mainstreamers.  Now we need some colonnades with wheel covers.

    NICE!

    One of the few kits I just completely gave up on as junk was the Lindberg 1/20 Ford Explorer.  I thought the Nissan and Toyota trucks were okay, the Stealth too.  Except the blocky sidewalls on the tires.

    Here's a weird one I found this morning.  This is not the song I wanted, but listen to Black Hole Sun in that playlist.  It's fun, especially if you like all kinds of stuff.  This pretty much nails my tastes in one.  I can listen to the Soundgarden version and then this and like them both.  Or give me some blues.

    This is a way I did the redlines in the photo.  I'm pretty ham handed so someone with a more delicate touch could probably do better.  I chucked a dremel sander drum in my cordless drill - moto tool spins too fast.   Then slide the tire over that and get it all true.  Fix the drill some how so you can operate it and the marker part at same time.  Vise, wife, etc.  Sorta like a poverty/ghetto mod - spin the drill at a slowish speed and apply marker to sidewall.  In this case I used a grease pencil/china marker.  But you can use a paint brush, pen etc.  And if you really go all out and make a trie holding mandrel, it would be a lot easier to get them true.  Silver or gold sharpies might work but only apply lightly to get a thin line.  By same token, you can take an x acto and scrape the line back to a thinner line after you make a big line.  Takes a light touch, but worked for me.

    VEry nice.  the older I get, the more I enjoy a simple kit.  You can work on the details and make them very nice models.  And besides, how often do you turn them over or show the engine details?  Nice build!

    Thanks for all the compliments.  I appreciate it.  I've been inspired/motivated by Randy Bs builds to make mine look as nice as his.  His stuff is so clean and realistic.

    The revell lowrider/custom Cadillac.   Stock suspension location.  I actually glued the front wheels in place to correct the wheelbase issue as it comes out of the box.
