    Two New Black Bodies
    I haven't done much in the line of completing a kit lately. I've about five projects in the works but the '57 Chrysler and Fourth generation Honda Prelude are the main focus right now and even these two are slow going. I recently moved and have been relegated to sitting on my bed or standing over a bookshelf to put some parts together. However I couldn't be happier with my ability to spray paint at my leisure (three coats per body with a sanding between coats. Yes! I'm honing my painting skills too.)... where before I was painting in the Florida summer heat, only on weekends, on a patio with no room to move around.

    In any event, the Prelude is being built to match my 1:1 daily driver. I was lucky enough to find a Fujimi Prelude kit ($40 on evilBay, but it was worth it due to an apparent rarity of the Fujimi kit). There is some modding that needs to be done to closely replicate my car. The interior center console and fender marker lights are about the biggest mods with the interior being a little more involved. The wheels are the biggest obstacle in the fact that no kit I've seen nor aftermarket rim seem to come close to stock Si alloy rims.

    The '57 Chrysler 300 has been completely "dechromed", painted flat black and will be dropped a few scale inches. The trunk will open and be fully... err... detailed. I'm going for a more "mid-restoration" rod look but I'll see what happens as it progresses.

    A little inspiration.

    Thanks for looking. More to come in the future.

    Tires for the Extra Wheels from Revelle Tuner Series Kits. Any Sugestions?
    I picked up a set of Hoppin' Hydros Low Pro's tires for a cheap price today at my LHS. After bringing them home and matching them up to the rims, I find they don't fit...So no big deal that they don't fit the extra rims that come with Revelle/Monogram's Tuner kits. But I'd like to know, does anyone know of any aftermarket tires that I can use with the extra rims from the tuner kits?

    Looks good. The black rims turned out great. Revell definitely did a good job in molding the Honda kits. I've built a few of my own...

    Looks great! I'm diggin' the black on red scheme. I'm wondering about the continental kit... did the tire cover come chromed in the kit?

    Here's mine. My link

    WOW! I've come across some off-the-wall-awesome builds, but this is tops! The jaguar hood ornament is in for a hell of a ride. Props on the flame job too.

    '65 Convertible and '67 GT Mustangs
    These two kits are always parked together in a 1:18 scale display case. Thought I'd take them out for a photo op. They are both AMT kits and I built them about 12 years ago. The Burgundy Convertible has the dealer-installed A/C (picked up the A/C idea from one of my reference books). I scratch-built the compressor from styrene and the vents below the dash came from a kit (forget which one though!). I added the grill lights using a set of leftover marker lights. The '67 GT is all stock and is one of my all-time favorite cars.

    Thanks always for looking!
