      We're in for some more maintenance tonight. I'll probably take the board offline for about 20 minutes or so after 9 PM PST.

    Great job from every angle.
  2. 47 rum runner

    I can see it screaming down Thunder Road.
  3. Post retirement modeling

    Work fast. Your hand skills may desert you sooner than you think.
  4. Mercedes 300 SLR Mille Miglia

    Fabulous.
  5. 1/16 Minicraft 1955 Mercedes 300SL

  6. 1/16 Minicraft 1955 Mercedes 300SL

    PPS: I once posted a detailed comparison of these kits, but can’t find it now. Anyway, I recall a couple of differences — Minicraft has a more complete space frame but, oddly, no firewall (should be easy to scratchbuild).

    PS: I always counsel Gullwing modelers to use the following references: Use Google Images to search fantasyjunction Mercedes 300SL Gullwings (the cars will be shown against a red brick wall). Fantasy junction shows a huge amount of photo detail in every nook and cranny. All photos can be clicked to enlarge, though they’re large to begin with. Dennis Adler’s book, “Mercedes-Benz 300SL,” is very thorough and heavily illustrated with color photos, and contains year-to-year spec and upgrade differences.
  8. 1/16 Minicraft 1955 Mercedes 300SL

    The Italeri has some better detail BUT their Gullwing body is incorrect, and the Minicraft/Entex/etc version is better. Italeri made a very accurate roadster body (except for the windshield) which, unfortunately, they adapted for the Gullwings. They are different bodies in the real world — besides the obvious differences, the roadster has more pronounced fenders and a larger grille, and you’ll see that if you compare Entex and Italeri.

  10. Floki the Shipbuilder - 1:10 Clay Dreams Miniatures

    Very true likeness.
  11. Auto quiz 395 - Finished

    I would have had it but the grille bar was missing from the original image.
  12. Mercedes 450sl restore finished 10/3

    Superb work.
  13. 1971 Lamborghini Miura

    I had the pleasure of being allowed to sit in and inspect a new Miura at a dealership back in the day, and the cream-colored interior was an unbelievable environment. Buttery smooth, aromatic leather that was soft and matte-finished.
  14. Jaguar D-Type XKD 606

    Spectacular.
  15. 1965 Ferrari 206P Dino - Forgotten Prototipo

    Fabulous work, as expected. Good to see you back.
