  1. 62 Ford Finally Done

    This has been sitting around for a long time, thought I had all the parts, stripped and repainted it, then realized I was missing the rear bumper. Finally acquired a bumper and now its done. Just Dupi-color white and black with some BMF.
  2. my models

    Very nice builds, I like how you stage your models for the photographs.
  3. Issue #205

    Received mine yesterday, already read every article. Thanks Gregg for all you do. Looking forward to 206 and the Contest edition
  4. 1953 Hudson Hornet Hollywood

    I like that, need to build one or two of the Hudsons in my stash
  5. 1955 Chevy Bel Air

    Used MCW Neptune Green and Seamist Green to match the box art from the Millennium kit. Other than BMF and the tires from AMT's parts pack it done straight from the box.
  6. Couple just finished

    Here are a couple projects finally completed and off the bench. Both started out as build ups that I took apart and rebuilt. The 61 Ford has a hood from SMH, wheels from the parts box, otherwise original kit parts. The Plymouth is a replica of what is parked in my garage. Paint is from MCW.
  7. '69 340 Dart

    MCW sells the correct Petty blue
  9. 1957 Dodge D500 Custom Royal

    All I can say is WOW
  10. 1:25 siding

    I look for items under g-scale under RR building materials. Check Oakridge hobbies they have a full line up of siding in all scales.
  11. Couple on the bench

    Started these 2 in Dec. been waiting to get in the mood for some BMF work. The Plymouth is a Johan 65 Fury. It will be an addition to my Pace Car collection. The Ford is a 61 AMT kit that I got as a build-up. I'm using a tear drop hood from SMH, wheels from my parts box, the rest has been salvaged from the original kit.
  12. 69 Corvette 427

    Looks great, love the color, cant wait to see the interior and body together
  13. Cobra Racing Team project

    Nice builds, received the Cobra kit for Christmas as well, its next on the to-do list. Like the wood on the trailer as well.
  14. So happy this kit has been re-released, have had plans to build a replica of my Grandfathers late 60's jeep pick-up. Had picked up the resin grill years ago, cant remember from where. Paint is a special order Jeep color from MCW. Changed the interior to a full bench seat from the 49 Ford kit. Cut the louvers out to get the full rear window, tires and wheels are from the Hogans hero kit. Need to finish detail the new grill, clear the body and assemble. Hope to have it completed by next week. Comments welcome.
  15. 68` Pontiac Firebird 400

    Very nice build, I keep looking at the one in my stash and say I've got to build that, oh well some day
