  1. AMT 1968 Mercury Cougar XR-7 GT, 390 4-speed.

    Very well done vinyl roof on an overall great looking model of the Cougar. I remember being very impressed with the XR-7 package back in the day. The dashboard mimicked those in Jaguars.
  2. Ivo's T Bucket

    I just found and read through the thread. Very interesting. I also dug my old model out of the display case for a closer look. I would say it was definitely inspired by the Kookie T and could be described as a tribute bit certainly not a replica. I used the kit SBC albeit with a Parts-Pak Cady 4 carb induction. The headers are also from the kit although shortened. The frame and bed were also shortened but I always regretted not giving it more of rake. It has a chopped down resin Deuce grill shell with a photo-etched grill. I took photo with my phone while writing this so it a little fuzzy.
  3. Ivo's T Bucket

    Hello Gerald - I could only find this one photo of my Kookie T. Notice it has a quick-change which the original did not. I built from the Revell 1/24 T kit which came with the pin-strip decals. This kit would also be a good starting point for the Ivo T as I think it was based on the Big T which was inspired by the Ivo T. The real Kookie T has a new owner who is rumoured to be wanting to restore it back to its 77 Sunset Strip configuration. I saw a very well done clone in the late 1990's at the Grand National Roadster Show that was displayed with scaled up bottles of Testors.
  4. Ivo's T Bucket

    You have come vey close to capturing the look of the Ivo T. It and the Kookie T are two of my all time favourites so I will have to track down the thread you mention. I tried building a Kookie T a few years ago and felt I got fairly close but it definitely was not a replica. 100% replicas are very hard to do.
  5. 1932 Ford Coupe

    Your build reinforces what great hot rod kits the Revell series of Deuces were. If built with the care yours exhibits that can produce a beautiful model right out of the box.
  6. Last couple builds, Bronco and 59 El Camino

    A couple of real nice models. I am especially impressed with the Bronco.

    Definitely far out man!
  8. Austin Mini V-Tec rear engine

    Very well engineered Mini. I have seen a couple 1/1 V-Tecs in front but never in the rear.
  9. 1928 Ford Sedan 60's Style Altered

    This is going to be one extremely nice looking vintage drag car model
  10. 1932 Ford Pickup 60's Style Altered

    Very cool project for a 32 pickup guy.
  11. Ferrari P4

    Beautiful model of a beautiful racing car.
  12. 1 of 1 Pagani Huayra

    You have really dived in at the deep end for your first build. Very impressive.
  13. Thanks Tim. Excellent coverage and very inspirational. I have only been the one NNL many years ago - NNL West. It looks like models are placed on the tables according to their type. Just curious - how many grouping were there at the NNL Nationals?
  14. '55 Chevy IMSA racer

    Definitely very interesting very different and very well done
  15. "T" time, Bloke!
