  1. I build mostly models of the 1:1 cars I've owned and have been using Paintscratch.com for many years and the colors are perfect. They now supply paint in spray cans, which I like as less work and perfect color. You should have no problem finding the exact paint.
  2. Formula1 Hot Rod

    Great idea and well done build!
  3. 1930 Packard Club sedan

    Been here enjoying your bodywork.
  4. A Volvo Surprise

    Very cool. I like building all the cars I've owned and sometimes die-casts are the only way. Now to find a '72 Volvo 145 ... eheh
  5. Plastered

    Hi Charlie. Athol, eh? Isn't that where Ft. Devens is? where I was stationed waiting for my Army medical discharge. It is wilderness out there! eheh You know I had am engineering/architectural consulting business here in MA and I can only say it's not worth it trying to preserve something that didn't work well to start with, it's just what they had available. I know everything is money, but you'll just lose more if you try to keep horsehair plaster. Tear it out, INSULATE and drywall it back. Do it a room at a time to keep costs down and if you know someone that can do it, all the better.
  6. Dukes of Hazzard Diorama

    I'm sure it can make the clothesline. Very well done!
  7. License Plate Making?

    I use most all the above methods but I have to make my original plates for cars I've owned. Acme does work if I don't have a photo I can print. The plate below was printed on decal paper and applied to metal from a soda can for thinness. I cut it out crudely trying to simulate a battered plate.
  8. keeps looking better and better!
  9. What do you drive?

    The GTI was pretty much as you say ... it broke loos and spun and chirped when really getting into it on dry roads. I never felt torque steer all the time I had it .. it IS an amazing front wheel driver. All Golf R's are AWD and the new Dynamic Chassis Control, IMO, gives it a Porsche-like ride between comfort and fast. My wife refused to ride in the GTI but likes the R .. go figure.
  10. Monogram 1953 Chevy BelAir

    Very nice!
  11. Lee Iacocca Memorial Community Build

    It's too late for me as I already did my Lee Tribute a few years ago .. my daughter's Plymouth Reliant K Kar! Will anyone do something NOT a Mustang or Viper!
  12. What do you drive?

    I like you're thinking! I had a '67 TR4A long ago when it was only 2 years old. Your TR6 looks great! And, I just sold my '16 GTI for a 19 Golf R two weeks ago. The R IS the fix for all that front wheel spinning on the GTI. It feels like a different car and I'm keeping it! ))
  13. The pickup is looking more and more how I was envisioning the color since way back. ))
  14. freezing when Uploading Photos

    That worked, Guess I just have to modify how I get from Fotki now. Thanks Michal
  15. 1921 LaFrance Speedster P2P entrant

    haha ... got that right. Just down the Green from you in Pittsfield MA. With the extension on this maybe I can finish ... might be as hard as the 1:1 P2P
