    Not to mention the possessive hers.

    Cincinnati chili like Skyline is pretty good and is unlike any other chili because of the spices, such as a touch of cloves and cinnamon. Vietti isn't bad. For canned Texas chili, the real deal is Wolf Brand, and the best Southwestern chili is what I make. For any canned or frozen chili, it helps to brown some fresh stew beef and add it to the pot (ground beef alone doesn't cut it).

    Doesn't show up on any of my searches. I give up.

    Even if you don't intend to build it, (a) it's not very rare and isn't an investment -- and if you want to sell it, you need to vouch for the box contents, and (b) if you want to build it, don't you want to know what's in there? Personally, I'll never buy an older sealed kit.

    Tamiya's 1/24 Morgan 4/4 -- beautiful, finely detailed kit with wire wheels that you can actually see light through.

    The most common color I used to see was a medium-light metallic green, a metallic version of the terra verde shown above.

    I'd go with the Rolls, which seems more likely for a Deusenberg. That Bugatti roof is distinctively Bugatti.

    I think it's amazing how long those primitive friction shocks were used. Same design on my 1937 Jaguar SS 100 kit.

    Your photo of the window decal is nice and sharp, but it looks like it's shot at an angle; If you can get a straight-on shot of the decal with no perspective (shoot from a slightly higher angle), you can print it out to scale on white decal paper.

    This was discussed this morning on Hoda & Kathie Lee, where they looked at substitute products. Most of them weren't chrome-like at all, but they showed Jamberry Nail Wraps, which looks like strips of BMF. Has to be cut to shape; $15/sheet.

    This must all seem like small change to a Pocher builder  😄
    As for kits, I've spent $125 for the 1/12 Revell re-box of Renwal's Ferrari 275 GTB (BAD move -- the kit is totally inaccurate junk), but I've spent multiples of that for research books and manuals.

    Outstanding.

    Superb. Looks like the perfect rosso corsa color, but the lighting is a bit dark. Great job on a lightly detailed kit.

    Except there's nothing like an authentic New England lobster roll, close to what Ace describes. Even McDonald's has them.

    There's a guy around here who has a 1:1, and this looks dead-on.
