  1. Great paint job. I see it looks like you used the kit supplied wood decal for the bed. How did it lay down for you? I just painted and dry brushed wood grain on mine, figured the decal would give some trouble.
  2. Here is a shot of a built Revell kit (mt fathers) with the resin body. I aligned the rear wheel openings to have the rear axle in place and look closely at the front wheel alignment.
  3. Chassis is pushed back to where it belongs in body. As you can see, there is a gap at the firewall and the front apron pan is forward to far. There are notches in the upper front corners of the inner fenders that lock against the core support that is molded in the body. The notches are to far forward.. It's not much but it is mind boggling.
  4. It looks like the body is about 1/16" to 1/8" short. Says to use the Revell Oldsmobile for donor. If you turn the body over, you can see where the Olds body was cut and assuming the Fleetline rear body was used. I don't know but a little disappointing either way. Just need to study everything to see which way to attack it.
  5. Has anyone purchased and built Jimmy Flintstones 1950 Oldsmobile Club Coupe body (fastback)? I just ordered and recieved mine and while cleaning it up, I discovered the chassis pan and frame from the Revell 1950 Olds Coupe is to long. When I compared the 2 bodies, it appears the resin club coupe body is short in the doors. Has anyone else run into this. I really wanted to build the fast back but this has me perplexed as what to do. Tried to get some pictures to show. It appears that they used the Revell body and just modified the fastback but why would the body come up short in length?
  6. Did you ever finish this? My son and I just picked one up for him and I went looking for some reference of the kit prior to starting it. I've had one in my stash for a long time now but never did anything with it since it didn't really build up into an accurate replica. My son is excited though to have his son I will build his out of the box and keep mental notes for when I get around to mine.
  7. Much improved over what you started with. Great job taking the previous builders "mess" and turning into this.
  8. Great movie, great cars, and great looking models. I especially love the Charger. Both look amazing.
  9. Wow!!! Love it. Great looking build of a very nice looking car.
  10. Wow Nice save of the body. Looks like they may have used glue as a primer lol. Anyway looking forward to seeing what you do with it.
  11. Don't forget Randy Travis was in it as well. Great looking build.
  12. Was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the whitewall decal application to the tires? I am interested in applying the whitewall decals to the tires but a little gun shy. On Nascar kits I spray the tire with semi gloss black, apply the the white letter decals then spray Testors Dullcote on them. That seems to work on them but they are a solid tire. The kit tires on the 29 Ford are hollow and not sure when they flex trying to get the wheel pushed in the tire. Is there a secret to applying them or just apply the decal over the tire as is with decal solution to get it to adhere? I'm just unsure that when the tire flexes with trying to get the wheel inside, that the decal will either crack or come off. Any help would be appreciated.
  13. I was just wondering if there was anything out there. One thing I was thinking about would be the supercharged engine.
  14. That looks great. That is my favorite color scheme on these trucks.
  15. Great looking truck. I have yet to get one of these 60's. Need to get one soon.
  16. No I didn't get any. I had my 8 yr soon to be 9 yr old son with me. He got his model rocket engines and he was ready to go, kinda rushed me out the door. Next time I'm there I will be sure to get some pics.
  17. Thanks for the comments. I took this model to my local hobby shop I go and showed him. He asked if he could display it for awhile? He really liked. I never had anything happen like that before. So it is currently on display in the hobby shop.
  18. Was wondering if anybody made any resin parts for the Amt 1/16 Thunderbird?
  19. Tha ks for the comments. I really like this build. One of my best I think.
  20. Completed pictures posted in Under Glass now. Thanks everyone that has commented thus far.
  21. Just completed my Foose 1956 FD100 pickuo. I sanded the Foose lettering off the tailgate. Placed an order from Scalefiniahes for some House of Kolor Tangelo Laqcuer. Cleared with Tamiya Clear. Handpainted the bed floor for a wood look. Interior and engine is Radome Tan. Orange plug wire from detail box.
  22. Looks promising. I will be following your build. I love these trucks. Wish somebody would bring a kit out of the Power Wagon.
