    Fireball Modelworks is selling the flares, I purchased a set and they are nicely cast.

    Very nice! The weathering is amazing! I'm hoping to pick up the paint tomorrow so I can get the body painted on mine!

    Monogram 1994 Mustang Convertible Boot
    I'm looking for the convertible boot for the Monogram 1994-1998 Mustang Convertible. I have some parts that I would be able to trade!

    Very nice, as usual! Is there any chance you could assemble your entire fleet for a picture?
  5. Jordan White added a post in a topic 2000-2005 Monte Carlo SS   

    It could have been a good option back when it was released, but as of now the newest model is 10 years old, and I don't think they would create a kit of a 10 year old econocar when they make only a handful of new kits a year. The only version I could potentially see even being considered would be the 2006-2007 V8 SS.

    That turned out very nice! It looks like the real thing! Amazing how it still looks tiny next to the real car!

    I like that technique, it looks great!
    I don't have any pictures at the moment, but last night I did some more work on my build with getting the interior tub pieced together. Essentially, I used the majority of the Revell interior for the front seat area, and the seat-area back from the AMT interior for the rear portion. For the seats though, I'm using the AMT seat for the front seat since it's more detailed and slightly larger, while the Revell seat will be used for the back seat since the cushion is shorter.

    The easiest way would be to use pieces from another bed, and reinforce the sidewalls from the back side. You will need to add approximately 9/16" ahead of the rear wheels, and 1/4" behind the rear wheels.

    I have one that I would be willing to send, I plan on building mine without the decals. PM me your address and I'll drop it in the mail!

    My build is slow going, I need to paint the chassis so I can get some progress going!

    Perhaps Joseph's Goodyear Suburbanite tires would be a good match.

    Pair of Pakistani Toyotas
    I just completed this pair of builds that are meant to represent a 1992 Toyota Land Cruiser and Hilux from Pakistan. I used the Aoshima Hilux and Tamiya Land Cruiser, and built them box stock.

    Of course, too few parts gives us the "melted" brake booster/master cylinder, battery, and heater core housing, which also goes back to the "too much detail in one area, not enough in another" dilemma.
  15. Jordan White added a post in a topic Can there be too many parts?   

    48 pieces does seem a bit much for a kit smaller than 1/12 scale, so that is certainly a case of too many parts. However, on the other end, some kits (namely older ones) have too few parts, electing to combine parts together (such as heads and intake manifold). It does seem like a balancing act to have enough parts for detail's sake, but not too many to where the builder is overwhelmed by numerous little pieces or bad fitment that throws off a bunch of other parts. On the other hand though, it seems that many of the larger scale kits seem to not have enough parts. Most of the Japanese large scale kits have plenty of parts and detail to create a convincing kit (Tamiya and Doyusha/Otaki come to mind), while the American kits seem to be not much more than scaled up 1/24 or 1/25 kits. Sure they don't need to go all out with working suspensions and turning steering wheels, but at least have poseable steering and enough parts to fill out an engine bay properly.
