  1. Walked over to my neighbors shop today to check out his 69 Camaro SS he's had since he was 18. I'm guessing he's 60+ now. He said, " I have something for you.", and handed me this along with a Testors paint pack and some glue. Later-
  2. I think so. Lol. I held off mentioning wanting one until I saw that Maindrian Pace had PM'ed you, hopefully with an offer of one. That way I wouldn't cut in front of you in line.... Later-
  3. Jesse, I love how this one turned out. Low and Long! I've got to get to work.on some of my Caddys. Later-
  4. Beautiful work and paint! I love how it turned out. Later-
  5. Jesse, That is looking cool! I think Oldcarfan's comments hit the nail on the head as to the flow of the lines. You need to get back on this! It will be a great complement to your 60 Continental. Later-
  6. I'd be interested in one of those MPC Blazers too, if anyone has one. Later-
  7. That looks nice! It has some good lines. Great color too. Later-
  8. I'll have to take a look when I get home. Thanks for the heads up. Later-
  9. What a beautiful moment! Those will be great memories for you and her. Love it! Later-
  10. If that is complete (has the photo etch parts with it) I have a Testors (Fujimi Enthusiast) Porsche 911 I'd trade. Upper left of pic. Later-
  11. Got one of these 1/32 Tbirds sealed inside in a trade from FB. I love these little kits! Later-
  12. I think it is the Testors one. It's a bit larger and very toy-like. I want to see what I can do to clean it up and put it on the shelf. Later-
  13. Your work is looking excellent! Nicely detailed. This is a great kit to build. I did one about 4 yrs ago. Sprayed it with some dark purple nail polish. Loved it! Later-
  14. I picked this one up recently. Later-
  15. Please do! And if your friend wants to trade it off, please let me know. The 53 is one of my favorites and you were headed in the right direction. I'm serious. If he wants to trade it, I'm in! Later-
  16. Very nice details on Rusty and Rolly. Great backstories too. A theme always helps make the build. Great work! Later-
  17. Well, I have been working on this one again over the last couple of days. I really want to get this thing done! It's been far too many years in the box. I dug it out on Friday and wet sanded the minimal bit of orange peel it had and threw a fi al coat on it. Waiting for it to dry really good and I'll wet sand and BMF it.before hitting it with clear. I did a detail of black on the gauge panel. I finally found a crab style distributor for the engine so tonight I began the plug wires. That's about all for now. Later-
  18. Thanks, but I think I have it covered already. I forgot to delete this post. Later-
  19. Dug this out tonight. Haven't touched it in a long while. Wet sanded the body and shot a final coat of paint. Getting ready to wire the engine. Later-
  20. I may go with the original color I picked. Just not sure yet. The.floor will not be too visible but the rear window is pretty good sized. Besides, I've wanted to try this for a while and I don't have any pickups in the queue to do it on. You know i love that color, but I've got that Firebird to do the Fathom Green on. Thank you all for the input. I appreciate it. Later-
  21. Looking to trade for the front suspension piece and the rear axle and diff from any version of the Ford Thunderbolt. I have lots to trade. I need them for a build I have in progress. Later-
  22. I'm having second thoughts about the paint color this morning. However, I'm not sure what to go with. Any suggestions or photo examples welcomed. Thinking about a dark maroon with decals similar to this. Later-
  23. Did a bit more on this last night. Fixed the driver's side drip rail by adding a strip of styrene a d sanding it to shape. Sorted out some tires and wheels for it and I think I've settled on a color. It is Testors Sunrise Red Pearl over Bright Platinum to darken it just a touch. Also started making a wood bed for it. Although, as I'm thinking about it this morning, a wood bed doesn't make much sense. But it's a custom, right? The wood will get stained and the brass rails will get chromed. I still need to do some clean up on the body and scribe some lines for a rear lift gate. Later-
  24. Spoken by someone who knows! Lol! Later-
