  1. Johan 31 Cadillac V16 Roadster

    The entire run of JoHan Gold Trophy series of kits are works of art worthy to be replicas of the original 1:1 . You did justice on this beauty . Seems like the end was not near while building it . Yes , you need the other 2 . Then Town Car is sided with wicker around the Passenger compartment . Than you for sharing this gem . Thanx ..
  2. Revell's 65' Chevelle

    Me too .. Thanx ..
  3. whats the rarest model you own and did you build it?

    Every kit I build , I am conflicted with myself . How far should I and yet actually finish the build ? You did a pile of extra effort . Would you post it ? The battle of refusing every adhesive know to Man was unnerving . Bakelite acts as this plastic does . Thanx
  4. Sad News

    I remember some of his builds in SAE . Condolences and Prayers to his loved ones he left behind . Thanx ..
  5. whats the rarest model you own and did you build it?

    Just a quick remark on the Calyspo Red '70 Cougar . I bpought the remains of one of these in 1986 . It is the longest stalled WIP I have . I still shore some fiddly parts . Are you close to done with your build . My Calyspo Red is 90.10 % painted .. lol .. Thanx ..
  6. whats the rarest model you own and did you build it?

    This kit is a BEAR to build . It has little going for it . One thing comes to mind , Humbrol colors match perfectly on the Interior parts connected to the Trees . Yes , quite obvious and showing when the Model is finished . Good Luck finding Humbrol Paints . It is unique , I am a unique car collector . It fits well in my Not run of the Mill Car Collection . Would I buy a Z IL ? Indeed yes , I have plans for the Die Cast Volga Limo parking in my Commie Car niche . Think Tienanmen Square Car . Thanx
  7. Yes , wow . His products are so spot on . Now for some EX70X14 and especially FX70X14 Muscle Car tires?? Red- White - Blue Wide Ovals .. Thanx ..
  8. 1966 Batmobile Barris Built

    Yes , this caster offered along with the Batmobile : The Car . Green Hornet's Modified Imperial , plus 2 more . This is the one I had the funds for before he disappeared into resin lore . Yes , Black finish . Mucho Bondo . If it was a 1:1 , no magnet in it's right mind would be attracted to this one . Striping was done in Phosphorescent Red and Orange layered . I would not be able to replicate this today . May I quote the Animals ? "When I was young .. " I saw the others built up as they were part of his display at the Toledo Show . Thanx ..
  9. Big Three engines by FTB

    I do so appreciate the information concerning the first Wedge head Mopar Engines . The A Block was a poly (semi poly spherical) head , the Valve covers had cures (3) along the bottoms for the Valve Trains . These Engines , the Polys , were offered in the Plymouth line in 1957 . i cannot find the details about these , past Rear location the Distributor . Then , I cannot find which side of the Cam? IIRC , Dodge and De Soto offered these with the Hemi in the lineup since 1955 . I think the Hemi was not available for the Dodge and De Soto beyond 1956 . This illustration shows the Oil Filter in the Horizontal Position . So , in the sceme of things ?? Where does the B Block 318 differ to distinguish itself . Oil Filter on the Left side of the Block and Starter on Right side ? Rear located distributor , again , which side of the Cam ? Was the first run (MY) of 318's a Ploy Head ? I know the Later Light Casting 273 - 318 - 340 - 360 Engine family have Rear located distributors with right side of Can Orientation . Tye 318 , with the Left side Oil Filter have a little Brace attached to the Oil Filter Housing . These disappeared during Oil Changes . Located in Chassis nudging he Steering Box , it made the task more difficult . Tye 340 - 360 had aright rear block location angled to clear the Right side Torsion bars in the E Bodies ect. Correct me where I am wrong please ? Thanx ..
  10. Auburn Speedster Monoposto

    A silk ear from a sow's ear . You did not miss out on a thing with this one lacking Wheels ? Tires ? As a friend in Auburn , the member of the Hot Rod Club located there would say . He owns a chopped up Auburn Rod . "You should know , I respect originals . This was too far gone to ever be restored ." Wonderful and beautiful build . I am saying allot . I build Factory Stock and I am retentive . Thanx .,.
  11. 1966 Batmobile Barris Built

    This is not a modern Styrene kit . It is a resin form way back now . It took me over a year getting hr pinstriping correct boith color and locations . I am horrioble at painting People . Greg Smith did these for me . I hate these Monogran Tires made in the '90's . 30 years after the batmobile thse Tires wee replicated in Monogram Kits . Ughhhh .. Enjoy . Thanx .. PS , the front View is cloudy here . Sorry about that . I use this as my Screen Saver . It is clear on my screen .
  12. Another replica of a Class Car . I want to see the finished build . Thanx ..
  13. You made an exact replica of a 1:1 Bill . I am detail orentated too . Will you post your copy ? Thanx ..
  14. Yes , this is why I chose to send for MCW Paint . The Mercury in 'Rebel without a cause ' caused (pun intended) this build . Thanx ..
  15. Thank you all . I am glad I am able to post here once more . Thanx ..
