MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. Excellent work on a difficult to build kit. I owned an original 1:1 ‘32 Chevy 5 window for 39 years and loved her.
  2. I love it! Nice job recreating one of my all time favorite deuces.

    32 Chevrolet

    A very nice job of a difficult model, much better than the one I built years ago. I had a 1:1 ‘32 sport coupe for many years and added an inline fuel filter very much like your model shows because I was tired of getting stranded with the needle/seat plugged with tank crud. When I saw your model it made me wonder if you had the same real life trouble I did!
  4. Wow! I love it! Brings back memories……. My parents actually had two, brand new, 1956 Plymouth wagons, a lower trim level though- Savoy or something like that. Both 6 cylinders and 3 on the tree. The reason they had two was the first, light green colored, one didn’t make it thru the first year- total lemon. The second in quite ugly gray wasn’t much better. I remember the dashboard ashtray was quite crude and sounded like fingernails on a blackboard when you pulled it open. This was quite a disappointment from the excellent quality our 1954 Plymouth had, so it was back to Chevrolet for them after that.
  5. Received my copy of #208 today. Wonderful from front to back!
  6. Corvette maybe 1/24 scale vs 1/25 scale Jaguar?

  7. Thank you Dan! That is exactly what the problem was.
  8. When I click on the Forum button the section that used to be the first up is now gone. This is the section where news/progress of the magazine was the first topic posted and it had a 10/2020 date. The second section was WIP, which is now the first section. Am I missing something here?
  9. Happy Birthday Russ. Best wishes on your special day. Enjoy it to the fullest.

  10. Steve I just heard back from the Spud Valley show in Fargo next month; unfortunately there will not be a competitive model car show there this year. I will still try to attend again as there will be a lot of plastic for sale and I have other (too many) hobby interests that are covered there! Would be interesting to meet you in person. Don’t let these people who are attacking you for your building style get under your skin. I am sure the majority of us here totally enjoy what you do each and every step of the way and take these opportunities to learn new skills and methods seriously. Keep up the good work!
  11. Steve, the Spud Valley show in the past has sometimes included a display of car/trucks and a competitive show. For sure there will be people selling kits. Sometimes some rare items show up. It’s at the Fargo Marriott near West Acres Mall in Fargo. I am trying to get more information from their contact person and will let you Know if I find out more. Russ
