  1. thanks if I get some time I intend to do some weathering on her (and final assembly, of course)
  2. one of our members makes a nice set, chucky or chubby or fuzzy or something its been a few years since he send me some
  3. thanks Jim I am not sure if I actually came up with this idea myself, or if I saw it online somewhere. I tried googling it by different keywords but all that came up was a millennium falcon in DOH livery.
  4. still a work in progress...but I always wondered how cool it would be if they painted the X wing fighter to look like a real rebel vehicle (the kit is an older snapkit, empire strikes back, I think) I still have quite a bit to do, mostly detail painting and final assembly, but she is close enough to tell really the only big change that needed to be made was the opening up of the motors, to fit the turbine wheels (stock on the right, modified on the left) about 30 minutes with the dremel did the trick the turbine wheel came from a 69 buick Riviera, and will be stripped and repainted steel the only other modification I made was cut out a bunch of clutter from the body to allow the flag decal to sit flush on second though, I should have cut a LOT more and put a whole new panel on the back, but I think it worked out
  5. shoot, just make a dio with only the latter part of the tail then (like that part was blown off and fell down) you did detail the tailgunners turret no?
  6. 11, 12 jaar nu al maar al mijn familie woont nog in Nederland, dus ik kom nog ieder jaar terug
  7. would look real if it wasn't for the palm trees in the background
  8. funny, I hadnt noticed your Dutch (never do pay a whole lot of attention to the avatars) Waar kom je ergens vandaan? ik ben zelf Jaren geleden uit de Brabantse klei getrokken
  9. why not make it a crash site diorama? rip the wings of (to preserve room) and rip sections of the fuselage of so you can show the interior or at least poke a few .50 cal. peekholes in there
  10. cant go wrong with a mopar...but way two clean for a day two car maybe its a dealer special with Cragars included?
  11. the dash I need looks like this I need it for an AMT 71 duster but the one that is in there is a rally version, the only kit I know of that has the dash I need is the pro street cuda your redoing I'm sure I could modify the rallye dash, but swapping is so much easier
  12. mine is pretty well preserved she does have the see through trunk and a few little bubbles on the fender, but not bad for a 45 year old car the biggest issue I'm having is getting power to the ground
  13. any chance I can talk you into trading out the dash for a rallye unit? I need a non rallye dash for a model of my 1:1 I'm building
  14. I like it somewhat of a change from the "buick V6 swap" that's so common
  15. those are all the parts I have lined up to build a model of ginger, only she is running a 408 LA now
  16. so, are you ready to pull the 440 and drop a helkitty in there? and whats even cooler, now you get to build a duster to put that 440 in
  17. what I like about them is the way you modify them with what you got to work with some of us have been in the hobby for so long, we have boxes and boxes of parts, and so we would never think to build side view mirrors out of spruce (if you were to touch up the chrome with some silver paint I might not have even been able to tell that's what it is) the paint on the Baldwin looks way better then the paint on the GTO, looks like your getting the hang of that too
  18. those floormats are a nice touch when I first saw the flocking on the floorboard I didn't think it would work out but once there is some paint on there, it looks really good on a side note, what does that 1:1 run, a 400?
  19. pro mod, pro sportsman, something like that http://www.ebay.com/itm/Revell-57-Chevy-Pro-Sportsman-Soff-Seal-1-25-Scale-Kit-USA-Model-Car-Swap-Meet-/321954587226?hash=item4af5fd225a I wanna say ive seen a pink version too
  20. I did a flip flop hinge tutorial on here ages ago it might help you get that front to sit and flip nicely
  21. i have one of those in my display case, right next to my twin turbo supercharged dual overhead cam hemi hazard county sherrif cruiser my boy build that one when he was 4 great starter kit
  22. same here someone had a pickup truck build off one day, it had to be a RWD V8 fullsize pickup...so I jokingly said I would mod a bug to enter in and they called my bluff I can post some pictures if your interested
  23. I had completely forgotten about the danas the hemi cuda had a 8 3/4 if it had a 727 transmission, if it was a 4 speed, then the dana was a mandatory upgrade funny how much the 7 1/4 and the dana look alike in that scale
  24. is that a 7.25 rear? I hope your not running anything bigger then a 318 in there
