      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Looks excellent, those whitewalls are perfect. How did you do the gold Starliner script? Paint? Gold foil?

    Thanks man, I just checked out the Chevelle that's shown in your avatar. Yikes, that thing is fantastic!

    Wheels and tires are 19" "Chrome T's" made by Pegasus Hobbies. Thanks!

    Thanks all! I modified the dropped front axle from the Revell '40 Ford.

    Anglia street rod
    Here are some photos of this Anglia that I just finished. Check out the pics when you get a chance. The headlights are from the Deuce Coupe kit, and the other kitbashing details are in this thread:

    That's a great looking wagon, cool concept! I'm going to get the Thames in the weeds as much as possible. I think I'll start with the '37 Ford chassis for that one since it's pretty easy to get it layin' rocker.

    These Anglias are like the anti-944! I think these rims came from the AMT '57 Chevy kit but I'm not completely sure since they came from the "wheel storage drawer". Rear tires didn't come with the rims, but they're hollow Goodyears ('69 Ford Galaxie kit maybe?). The front tires are from the Deuce Coupe or one of the '37 Ford kits (they all use the same tires).

    Drivetrain, chassis and interior are done. I used the kit's engine and added a radiator fan from a '37 Ford kit:

    The sound system is from a Ford Focus SVT kit (can you hear me now?)

    The dropped front axle is from a '40 Ford kit, the headers and exhaust tips are from a '37 Ford kit, and the mufflers and pipes are from a Deuce coupe kit:

    Brakes are from a Willy's coupe kit. The Anglia kit rear end was modifed quite a bit to lower it:

    Next up is some polishing and final assembly. Thanks for checking out the progress photos!

    I'm starting one of these now as well. I opted for the modern street rod look with mine. How about 2-tone paint job, black for the top half, some lighter color for the bottom half, with big 'n little steel wheels painted to match the bottom half of the car and baby moon hubcaps? The suspension would need to be lowered. I'm going to lower the kit's rear axle and use the front axle from the Revell Deuce coupe to drop the front end.

    Yes, this is my '87 (stone gray metallic, actually). I tracked down your "under glass" thread and posted a response there. Great work!
  13. JayVee added a post in a topic 1987 Porsche 944   

    Your avatar (and comments in my Anglia thread) led me to this thread. Great job on this 944! The engine detail is spot-on. Do you still have your 1:1 '87? That's the same year as my current 1:1.

    Thanks guys! Peter, that hair dryer trick is a great idea. I'll try that next time I use vinyl masks. I sanded down the overspray (some of it shows in that photo) and clearcoated it. It never ceases to amaze me how overspray can get under about 3 pounds of tape.

    BTW Foxer, love that avatar

    Anglia street rod
    I've always liked this model kit (and the Thames panel truck, too) so I picked up one of each. I wanted to try building them in a modern street rod style. The paint is Tamiya racing white (slightly off-white). The flame mask pattern is from the Jimmy Flinstone Testor's masks, but I had to transfer the pattern to wide 3M blue tape to get the mask to conform to the tight curves:

    The ride height will be pretty low but not slammed. These rims and tires are from the parts box and they're narrow enough to not require large wheel tubs, just a little coaxing on the wheel wells with the Dremel.
