    Fellas,
     I'd love to see the MPC Mako Shark reissued, I never had the kit as a kid and would like to get a shot at it before I get tooooooo old.  The auction site Mako Sharks are a bit out of range for me...

    Joel,
     Welcome to the forum, I met you years ago at one of the first NNLs that was held in a Church basement that was built on a steep hill. I still recall your 1/32 coach  modified model. Any pics of it that you could post ?

    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 !!!!
