  1. Great looking period hot rod. I have always liked the look of a chopped 5-window with a raked channel job plus a perfect combination of other parts - the flathead, the whitewalls, the slicks and hubcaps.
  2. Thanks Matt - Before I started building my Lola T-70 I did a comparison of all small block Ford V-8 I could get my hands on. There is an incredible variation in demensions but the IMC SBF definitely measured up the narrowest.
  3. Hello Matt - Let me be the first to congratulate you on your superb build of the IMC Lola. I also very impressed with your photography especially the "see through" engine cover. I am not sure however we can refer to the IMC kit as 1/24. I think it is more like 1/27 or 1/28. Actually there is a way to get 1/24 Lola using a Tamiya body. Not that many years ago Tamiya reissued their Lola T-70 slot car body which I built up on a Fujimi Ford GT-40 chassis. You can check it out here.
  4. Arrived today December 2 Victoria BC Canada. Looks great. Thanks Gregg for your dedication. Hope you have a great holiday season and all the best for 2020 Regards Phil
  5. Very nicely done. Handsome car. This kit is worth buying just for the wheels and tires.
  6. That is one very cool looking Deuce. Great job.
  7. Fabulous paint job and great photos
  8. After seeing your project last evening it was interesting to review your build details to learn what I missed seeing in person.
  9. Its going to look fantastic painted green.
  10. I am going to the local model car club meeting this evening so I thought I would fit things together to show what I have accomplished since last month. The under-door side trim was modified to represent the grooved 63 design with textured Evergreen Styrene. In front the open grill was also fabricated with Evergreen Styrene. The gaps in the top two bars are for the bumper mounts. The cowl vents were opened by grinding underneath then scribing with a hobby knife. This is the first test fit of the window glass. It looks like I may need to fiddle a bit with the windshield.
  11. Thanks Bill - I noticed the steering linkage fell off. Fortunately I found it.
  12. I have completed all the underbody modifications and assembly, as this will likely be the last On the Workbench post before finishing the body and putting it all together. The engine fit perfectly into the Revell 67 427 engine compartment. I added the surge tank from the AMT 63 and made up a master cylinder more representative of that used on the Z-06. The radiator bulkhead was modified to except the air intake and some additional plumbing was added. I had a chance to look underneath my buddies 65 Corvette and realized I had previously misidentified what was painted green zinc chromate. The two green pieces are seat securing nut plates. I also painted the spare tire carrier a more representative grey. Side exhausts are aluminum tube joined to sections of the styrene exhaust from the 427 kit.
  13. Great to see the GTO and Daytona together. They both look fabulous.
  14. You should be proud. I always appreciate seeing built Roth models. You now have a great collection. I had an ambition to build them all and had the kits and a couple of books about Roth's creations. But I am sad to say I have built none. Have started a Bandit and determined to some day complete it as it is my all time favorite.
