  1. I also thought the first pics were reference pics. Wow! Excellent work!
  2. I'm liking this thread. When I saw you were using the Revell turbine, I thought "He gonna find out how big that thing is." I built one up a while ago. It took up the back of a pickup bed. Something I learned about that engine is it's not based on anything real. Bob Paeth said the crew at Revell just kinda made up what they thought a turbine engine would look like. Keep going! I want to see how this turns out. Scott`
  3. Wow, Steve. Do you have inside access to MCM editorial? I compare the size of it to a 64 Impala in the article. Thats amazing!
  4. Hey Paul, LOTS of progress on the Pierce Arrow. Your's and other member's suggestions (along with some of my own tendencies) really determined the direction of the buildup . We will definitely be in issue 210 as promised. I had no idea you were such and Renwal/Exner fan. Your excellent post is timed well. And your collection is awesome. As far as sneak photos go, let me check with editorial. I like the idea! Scott
  5. Excellent thread, Paul. I am wondering how much massaging it took to get your Pierce Arrow to looks so nice. Chris - The Esquire magazine did not have the Pierce Arrow? I would love to see front and rear styling renderings. When I was reading Larry Greenberg's Atlantis interview in MCM issue 209 there was mention of the Renwal molds. Hmmmm. Scott
  6. I remember every one of those models. I like 'em all. Glad to see you back.
  7. Excellent work, Tim! You definately hit the 60s vibe. Fun model.
  8. That animation stand is awesome! I've never seen that. There was a plastic vet from MPC that had some of the same features. I bid on it but the buyer pulled the item.
  9. Wow! That is VERY nice. Lots of good detail, yet super clean. The word "sinister" comes to mind.
  10. I'll be using this one! Excellent solution.
  11. Hey Paul, We were just talking about that. It ran in MCM. They used Alumilite (sp?) I can't recall the issues. It was a while back. There are lots of YouTube on it. I picked up a system that is very easy to use. It's called Smooth On. I use it to cast small parts. Scott
  12. One of my favorite kits! You did a great job with it!
  13. Excellent work as always! I really enjoyed watching this one come together.
  14. That's the first I've ever seen of an ACME Willys. I've heard the ACME instructions are pretty minimal. The response was that they wanted the modeler to put his own spin on it. Yours looks great! Very clean and has the "look." Nice work.
  15. I've been to that lighthouse! Great Day in Ohio. My favorite was the Sharshank prison. Oh- back to cars... That Chevy needs yellow and black paint and you are very close to a Bad Man.
  16. File this under Oops and Dummer. I had stripped some small parts and it was time to rinse them off. As I do, I put the stopper in the sink and rinsed them and hit them with an old tooth brush then set each one on a napkin to try when they were finished. All done! I pulled the stopper and started picking up the parts when the alternator (a little smaller than a pencil eraser) flew right at the sink and literally swirled around the drain like a basketball and then dropped in before I could get to it. Arg! The the thought process...which is harder finding a new alternator or pulling the PVC trap. Trap it is. I unscrewed it and dumped it in the stopped up sink and retrieved my part. The part was carefully set aside with the rest, far from the ravenous sink. Good choice. The trap was a bit smelly. I thought "I should rise this out while I have it out." So I did. Bad Choice. Big mess! Scott
  17. Great to see you back, John! Looking forward to watching you complete this one.
  18. Finally got a chance to get caught up on this one. Great stuff with every shot! Looking forward to Mark's return.
  19. Thanks for all the kind comments. It was nice to actually finish something. Paul, it as about 7-8 inches, claw to tail. It fits on my open hand. The top picture has the claws assembled in the upper left corner. Scott
  20. Hey Mike, Thanks for checking it out. The Renewal kit did win. SO you are late, but you hit the mark. Hey Paul, This series is going to be covered in articles in MCM. It will be a build up (more like break down and rebuild) article. I'm just finishing up a photo booth with some great input from Tim at MCM. The car is coming apart without too much damage. I do not think this project will make issue 109. Hopefully it will show in 110. Thanks to everyone who voted and provided input! Scott
  21. This is a really kool kit by Steel Warcraft I found on line. My wife, Nani gave it to me for my birthday. It's really fun to build. I built it non-stop and it took about 4 hours. There were no real problems. I had to rebuild the tail because I got a couple parts upside down. You can see I was pretty careful about setting up for the build. All the nuts and bolts were put in little containers and I guilt over a tray to catch any parts that fall. (It worked.) I also recommend getting a good pair of tweezers. They will be in your hand at least half the time you build this one.
  22. I think we are on the same pages, Richard. As much as I want to emulate the box art, I feel the design calls for a more elegant color. Thanks for jumping in, Carl!
