    There's a model building season? I've been building models out-of-season this whole time????

  2. Chuck Most added a post in a topic Revell vs. Aoshima Datsun 720, any reccomendations?   

    Big put-off with the Aoshima kit (for me) is the grille. Just looks weird- the opening is a bit narrow and the headlights are big.

    Yep- Danbury Mint. I also own a 1:1 '47 (mine's a 1-1/2 ton though), so I'm also looking for another one to put under the knife. 
  4. Chuck Most added a post in a topic What kits did you miss ?   

    I was in the same boat back then too. 
    Another one I missed was the Ford F-150 Harley Davidson Edition from 2000, the one with the trailer and Dyna Glide. Never saw that kit on the shelves when it was current and didn't know it existed until about seven years later. Did manage to nab one yesterday.  But if I'd known about it back then I'd probably have ten of the things.

    Pretty much anything and everything by Johan. Wasn't even aware of them until I was about 12 (1994) and even back then it was a little too late. I've made amends by snapping up a few over the years since.

    That's not the date, it's a countdown timer for a bomb. RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
    But back to the matter at hand, no, I've never done a model to match the box art. It's temped me- there are times when I couldn't decide on a color and thought "well, it looks good in that color on the box, why not?". But so far I've never gone ahead with that idea.

    This. You have to remember those guys were rocketing down the 1320 on rock-hard bias ply tires, for one thing. You needed all the help you could get.

    Almost looks like they borrowed the old ex-Goodyear Trackers from Monogram, does it not?  That aside, it looks to be pretty nicely done.

    The only thing I don't like about it is that it's not on MY display shelf. Very nicely done, sir.

    Thanks, guys. I had a blast building it, and I'm fairly happy with the result, so I'd pretty much be forced to call it a success.

    Gorgeous- the suicide door Connies were as close to perfect as American luxury cars ever got. Eventually I'd like to fill in the gaps in my '61-'69 Connie collection- I JUST need a '61, '63, '64, '66, '67, and '68 and I'll be all set. 
    That custom version on the box top kinda looks like an Edsel update. Call me weird, but I do rather like it. That being said I'm glad you went with a factory stock build style. 
  12. Chuck Most added a post in a topic Hudson Club Coupe   

    Very nice- for some reason the way you did the two-tone reminds me of a late '50's Mopar. 
  13. Chuck Most added a post in a topic 53 Hudson   

    I dig it. 
  14. Chuck Most added a post in a topic 1954 Hudson Hornet Special   

    Yep- salt method, with a little brush "dabbing" here and there.
    Engine is from the kit with a modified intake and a parts-box blower. I don't remember where I got the pulleys-they're turned aluminum. This head was scratchbuilt, but you can get one from Morgan Automotive Detail now.
    Thanks guys!

    Shaping up nicely!
    This is the first '68 AMT Galaxie I've ever seen that didn't have a severely warped body.
