    Fellas,
     I came THAT CLOSE to buying one of these cars "back in the day"...and I clearly recall the funky wheel covers. I'll bet they're pretty rare these days !

    Andreas,
     ASTOUNDING !  Beautifully executed, wood is a difficult material to work with, BALSA is especially so !  Thanks for sharing the photos.

    Doug,
     Really nice builds, I don't trust myself with the FUTURE application just yet but I'll be giving the method a try soon. Thanks for sharing the photos !

     That has got to be the best FORD GT build I've ever seen, beautiful !!!  It looks like a 1:1 scale car...

    Folks,
     Two examples of polished plastic instead of paint, building kits like this remind me of my "yoot" !   I'll have to say however that in my estimation the earlier releases, particularly Monogram and to some extent AMT kits, were of much higher quality plastic. I also feel that the molds were polished to such degree that the resulting parts were very smooth and actually "glossy".
     I like to use TURTLEWAX for polishing the plastic, the old stuff that actually had a very mild abrasive in it and NOT INTENDED for clear coated finishes.

    Steve,
     I too build kits and leave them in the molded colors...your Plymouth is STUNNING and carries the practice to new heights !!!!

    Folks,
     With those prices, there's no better time for me to look through my stash and build the kits I have in house !!!
