    I spotted these in Mansfield OH while doing the Shawshank trail tour. (The prison is really fun to see.)

    This was around the corner from the other cars. The front looks pretty neat.

    The back needs more work

    It always amazes me how precise your work is. Thanks for the update!

    I picked up a couple things recently. The Stude is mostly for the Mr. Speed decals and the body. I want to recreate the rear engine funny car version. I actually had one, but let myself get talked into selling it. Jerry Amaral got it and made an awesome bullet nose version of the rear engine Stude as part of a drag team. I wish I had pictures because it is one of my favorites. 
    The Beretta decals are because I always liked the box art of the original issue of the pro street Beretta, but the kits have pretty much disappeared. I'll get a reissue and use the old decals.
    The last pic is a reminder of days gone bye bye.

    1.30 marked down from 2.00. Just enough allowance money to make it.

    Those are really good for 11. I've been checking out all your stuff. It's great. A real trip down memory lane. All of them excellent and very clean builds.
    I still have my Thames panel from when I was a kid, but it been through a few versions. The rest of the missing childhood kits got replaced from e-bay like you and John. Although now, with the amount of reissues, I am waiting on some of the more pricey ones.

    Simply amazing. I followed the build on this. The finished product is incredible.

    Looks great so far. I built this one as a kid.
    I'll be watching.

    I'm getting the same thing.

    Wild. That's taking kit bashing to a new level. I'll be watching.

    I hear ya, Bill cause I hear them too. Drives me nuts when people impose their music on others. I've got the kid behind be who can't work in the yard without the radio blaring from his truck. Selfish jerks.

    Picked up the cool snow dragster off the bay for under 20.00 (shipping included) and some resin casting supplies to reproduce a few parts for another project.

    It's tough getting good service technicians these days.
    Our Whirlpool Gold oven started going on the fritz. The heating elements would just go off. The panel would go blank but the power was still there because the light worked. An online search indicated the control panel was going out. My wife remembered she was happy with the people who did our Fridge so she called them again. I'm not sure who she meant to call but a Sears repairman showed up. The cost for the visit is 100.00. OK. He was rude to Gram, he was rude to me, and he was rude to my wife. He confirmed the control panel is going out. It took him 10 minutes. The name the estimate.... 750.00 for the part. 250.00 for the labor. We paid him his 100.00 and sent him on his way.
    I check Amazon and found the part for 150.00. I found an excellent you tube video that perfectly shows every step in installing the control panel from start to finish. It also lets you know the tools you need, (nothing special) and has some safety tips. The entire video is only 21 minutes long! I should have sucked it up and tried to do the work myself from the beginning AND we should have checked YELP before letting these people come out. Everything I said above was repeated in one testimony after another. I added one more 1 star review to the list. There is no option for 0 stars.

    Thanks Brad!
     
    I was planning to go the same route as Dr. Kerry. Something more accurate to the actual movie car. So what you make should be a great fit.

    I think I'm watching that on e-bay. Did not know it was such a great save.
