    Spectacular guns.

    I've seen plenty of leather, fabric and other material gun cases for a single, fully assembled shotgun, but not like the one you're making. But I guess It would be custom-made anyway. 
    This project looks fabulous.

    Another superb piece of work, as usual for you.

    You'll notice in the link to a built kit (one of the best I've seen) that the hood doesn't fit properly and needs attention.  Again, you'll want to find some larger tires. As mentioned, lots of detailing and accurizing needed. The windshield frame needs attention, too. The Lindbergh box is very misleading since it shows a 1:1 car, but at least it provides reference.

    I thought the Visible Woman was pretty hot.

    I have Grandt Line delrin chain, the smallest I could find, which is still too wide and thick for the brake cable for my 1/16 Bugatti, and would be too big for a 1/24-25 bicycle. That Top Studio motorcycle chain looks possible for my needs, but I'd sure have to check actual size before I spent the money.

    Yes, the Auburn wheels and tires are too small in the Lindbergh kit; they were more accurate in the original Pyro version, but they were 2-part plastic wheel/tire molded together. However, the Auburn is 1/25, so you'd need to check compatibility with the Cadillac.

    Boy, is that an understatement. I couldn't believe that Revell/Monogram would put their name on the reissues.

    Beautiful work. I saw a rerun of "Chasing Classic Cars" yesterday, where Wayne Carini bought a '53 sedan. Note to builders: The antenna is attached to the chrome of the windshield, and a knob inside swivels it down in front of the chrome on the split.

    I found the Visible V8 box art very appealing when I built it as a kid.  I was about the same age as the boy, and my Father smoked a pipe just like the dad in the picture.

    Bear in mind that the Pocher body will be 1/8, but it's possible they could be using Wingrove plans -- Gerald Wingrove usually builds one-offs in 1/15 scale; you can see his spectacular 8c2900B in galleries 4&5 in the Alfa 2.9 section at
    I can't find any info on Stephen Pombo.

    I'm not sure how this got moved from Big Boyz ("Anything to do with large scale cars"), but here we are. But even if you wouldn't buy an expensive, large-scale car, your opinion is still welcome.

    Beautiful piece of work. The metallic paint, surprisingly, doesn't look out of scale. Need a lot more shots.

    New Alfa body for Pocher
    Model Motor Cars is coming out with something of a holy grail for me, a new Alfa 8C 2900 Mille Miglia body; fits on the Pocher Alfas. Due early 20016.

    Here's a real one...

    I can't afford the Pocher kit, so I'd have to do the body like Ralph Lauren's pre-restoration version..
