  1. '65 Fury. Back on the Bench.

    I remember meeting you but I too can't remember faces..I look like my avator but with slighly shorter hair..Black shirt..Hope to see you win another one of our road worthy awards..Lookin' forward to seeing the Imperial..
  2. '65 Fury. Back on the Bench.

    Steve, hope you are bringing something to NNL North on Sunday..Look for the old grey haired short fat guy with the Winnipeg Model Car Club black BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH..I more than likely will be sitting at a table..Sorry to hi-jack the thread..
  3. Neil Bonnett's Armor All Olds

    Sure would like to see a model of Neil Bonnet's Armor All Dodge Magnum..Come on Salvino Bros..Lets do some Magnums..There were a few running at times..You could do Kyle Petty's ARCA winner too..
  4. Dream Time: What cars would you like to see modeled?

    I guess, but realistically how many variations of any one of those can you make? If you can't get more than one copy it will never happen..Its just the way the model business is today..
  5. 1956 Chrysler Windsor convertible

    Sure would have to be some adventurous guy with very deep pockets and tons of skill or connections..Would be nice when finished if it was possible..
  6. Pete Hamilton Road Runner

    Too bad he had back problems and had to retire..I know he drove at first for Petty Enterprises then Cotton Owens but after I didn't know..He was a good wheel man with some talent..I also know he was involved with Petty on the Kit Car stuff, or was it Jim Millican?
  7. '48 Ford Convertible Club Coupe.

    Sorry to hear of your misfortunes in life and goings on, but there is one thing you haven't lost..Your skill and building of model cars..Excellent and clean work, well done..
  8. 1/25 AMT '63 Chevrolet Impala SS Hardtop

    Thanks, It an old smaller can of Duplicolor Lacquer, some light Ford blue..Was close to Mopar blue so I used it..Who's going to know the difference..Big mistake on the Plymouth, I didn't sand out the dimples on the truck or fill them or the one on the front of the fender..No filler..Oh well, it is what it is..Not changing it now..
  9. 1/25 AMT '63 Chevrolet Impala SS Hardtop

    I just painted one that I bought from a guy in our club for $5.00..Its going to be a box stock build..In the picture also is a 62 Plymouth..I only have this picture of the Chev with the Plymouth..This is an older issure with tail lights molded in..A guy in our club brought a 64 Chev(AMT) to a meeting with just parts in the box..I scored the firewall,radiator and rad hose..Now I'am set..LOL I build simple because of dexterity and patience..Wish I could do as some, but just don't have it anymore after a stroke and being 71 yrs old..
  10. Problem with KRYLON paints

    Bucky I think its just a BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH shoot with Krylon..That why I was a little doubtful of using it..I liked the yellow so I tried it and it came out okay..Will be worried again when I try it another color but why not..
  11. Problem with KRYLON paints

    I shot for the first time ever Krylon Fusion over Duplicolor sandable grey primer..Went on smooth the shot with Duplicolor Acrylic Enamel(tall black label can) I was worried but came out good..Dry quick and smells like lacquer but smooth like enamel..Week and half later wet sand 2000 then 4000 then polish with Meguiar's Scratch X2.0 then finish with Meguiar's Gold class paste..Its the yellow car in the picture...Both cars were cleared with the Duplicolor Acrylic Enamel..and polished the same..
  12. 1960 Impala lowrider

    Mighty fine work..
  13. Double chopped Merc

    WOW! How many Best of Show awards and Paint awards have you won with that car??VERY CLEAN..SUPER JOB..
  14. 1962 Chevy Bel Air 409.

    Any shade of gold is hard to paint..I find silver or light metallic blue or other light metallics are hard..They show everything..Your car looks well done and you should be proud of your work..Its very good..I'll show you mine I did around 1996..
  15. Cotton Owens Charger 500

    WOW! Never knew Sam Posey drove one NASCAR race..
  16. 1970 Dodge Challenger Tracktool

    NOT the way I prefer my 70 Challenger, but the work is OUTSTANDING..EXCELLENT EXECUTATION..Every thing is perfect..VERY WELL DONE....
  17. '65 Fury. Back on the Bench.

    Sport Fury in 65 and 66 came with skirts..
  18. Read It and Weep...

    I used to buy Hemmings Motor Journal in the late 70-80s..About a year ago I looked in one and thought just for chance I'd phone an ad I had circled for a 62 Cadillac..Number worked and the guy still had it..Small world, it wasn't for sale now, he gave it to his grand son who restored it..
  19. 1961 Chevrolet Impala SS 409

    Without looking at the poster, I thought that I recognize those models..And sure enough after I read who posted the pictures I knew I was right..
  20. 1970 GTX

    Very nicely done and super clean,clean,clean..
  21. 1974 Plymouth Satellite "Sundance Special"

    My mother had one of those..Her color was more gold like..Sure was a nice car..You captured the look just looks like the 1:1..Brings back good memories..
  22. Interior color help needed

    That Black Ford..."Winner,winner,winner, chicken dinner"
  23. 1962 Bel Air final assembly

    I built a 62 Bel Air 20 years ago and had no trouble at all fitting the interior/chassis to body..Your problem might be the side glass that is glued in..The interior sides don't line up with the body because of the side glass..Just a guess but it could be..Nice job on the model..Hope things work out..I find in building the most frustrating part is the mating of chassis/interior/glass and body..
  24. 69 Camaro SS Daytona Yellow

    Really liking this build, color and everything looks just right..On thing though and its not your fault at all, are the w/shield wipers..Wish they would mold them in like they used to..Easier foiling and look more realistic and NOT toy like..Very clean and well done model...They only do wipers to make the parts content go up..They are hard to install without glue marks and if molded in, if you didn't want them you could sand them off..
  25. 1967 Ford Galaxie XL, 427 R Code.

    Watching for it at this years NNL North..
