  1. You continue to show what the future holds for our hobby, between the 3D printing and die-cut styrene techniques. Yes, it's available now, but you show us the potential if we put our minds to it Really glad to see you back on this one
  2. 33 WILLYS WOODY conversion

    I've always wanted to build this, inspired by that same green 1:1 build since i saw it at a Goodguys show in NY almost 20 years ago. Nice job on the conversion
  3. 1957 Chevy Nomad Custom

    Nice details like the grille and wheelcovers. Well done
  4. ┬┤40 Ford Custom - Bill Cushenberry┬┤s "El Matador"

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it's still the R+R kit, purchased from Star Models. You did a nice job of bringing that rarely built resin kit to the finish line. Looks great
  5. 1965 El Camino Camper

    Nice patina paintjob. Cool build of a unique subject
  6. Drag City Castings- new items added 10/22/18

    Just found some time to photograph the few new items I've gotten from Drag City Castings recently. I was particularly happy he made this T-Bird roof available since it fits the AMT body so much better then the one provided in the kit. That's because it's from the Jr. Craftsman kit, so it's a different tool than their more widely known full detail series 57. Also shown is the modern tool AMT 56 T-Bird roof, because it also fits that body really well. Since the windshield header is different in that kit you will have to do a little work there to adapt it, but I'm sharing it just for comparison sake. left- 56, middle- Drag City Castings 57, right- AMT 57 (note the curvature of the bottom of the parts, this is the key to the better fit) Mounted to the 57 body And just for fun, mounted on the AMT 56 body SBC headers 32 Ford stock style firewalls for Revell 32 series

    Good looking buildup. I love how on this one and your Little T based builds that you make the slicks into cheaters.
  8. Have you ever wondered about all the Great AMT Box art ?

    I love this box art series
  9. Don't say that too loud, or you'll start a fight with Tim Boyd, right Tim?
  10. Pretty sure because this thread is pie-in-the sky, positive, daydreaming type speculation, rather than the doom-and-gloom, sky is falling, negative speculation that surrounded the Hobbico bankruptcy thread. Looks like the upbeat tone of this thread has helped it stay afloat.
  11. Chopping tops like a mad man

    Thanks for taking the time to explain it, it makes sense now that you say it. I build a lot of old Ford hot rods, especially 32's, and I hate chopping the tops because of that extra reveal in each window opening, trying to get those looking good. But your cuts on that sedan look really good. I'll be excited to see how they look when finished out
  12. 1957 "Ch-emi" Nomad (Now under glass)

    Your fan solution works well based on the theme of the build you've got going on. It's like a guy just wanted to keep his old car running, so through a little ingenuity, threw whatever he could into it. Looking forward to seeing this one On the Shelf
  13. Chopping tops like a mad man

    Nice work on the various chops. You have a great eye for proportion Just a question, what is going on at the back end of the body here?
  14. '62 Corvette Rehab

    I mis-read what you originally wrote, i thought you wanted the graphics. Well, not sure if the rest of the decals originated from that set or not. But, if you do happen to have that decal set and don't want the line graphic/flames i could take them off your hands
  15. '62 Corvette Rehab

    If you dig the original paint scheme those decals were brought back in the latest reissue of the Sock-it-To-Me 62 Vette
