    Looking great so far!  Nice job on the complex masking and painting.
    As I love rally cars, I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

    Outstanding!  Beautiful work Dr. Jay.
    The bar continues to be raised by folks here...
  3. NY Modeler added a post in a topic Matty Winspur's the fabulous Hudson hornet   

    I just picked one up today at NNL East.  My first Moebius kit.  Outstanding in every respect.  The glossy instruction booklet with color photos was a welcome surprise.
    The subject was unknown to me, but it's cool and I love the paint.
    I've been wanting a Hudson Hornet since the first version was released.
    Really looking forward to building this.

    Awesome build - especially in 1/43!
    Your weathering is perfect!

    WOW - outstanding job Ben!  I've got a Transtar II in the stash that I'm looking forward to building one day.  I'll definitely refer to your build when I do.
    Where'd you source the fuel tanks?

    Love this build.  Particularly impressed with your rust/weathering effects.
    Was there a WIP thread?  I'd love to learn how you created such a great rust effect.  Perfectly subtle.

    Nice pair of Cutlasses!  Always been one of my favorite musclecars.
    Where'd you find the Linda Vaughn figure?
  8. NY Modeler added a post in a topic '48 ragtop, now finally completed (with trim rings)   

    The trim rings look terrific foiled.  The entire model looks great.  Very nicely done.
  9. NY Modeler added a post in a topic AMT 39 Fordor Sedan   

    Beautifully done!  Love the color.

    Or the MPC Dodge Force 440.  It'd be worth it just for the accessories (radios, weapons, etc...).

    Michael,
    Keep in mind that the Freightliner COE is designed to be built either as a day-cab or sleeper-cab.  As a result, there's a nasty seam up the sides and along the roof.  The sanding required to blend the seam often results in the (out-of-scale) rivets being sanded down and having to be replaced.
    If you decide to build a cabover, you might want to select a different kit (Peterbilt 352, Kenworth K123, GMC Astro, etc...)
    Good luck with your first heavy truck!
    -Ken

    Beautiful, clean build.  Really pops.  Well done!
  14. NY Modeler added a post in a topic 1978 Dodge Monaco   

    Great restoration!  Even being a Mopar fan, I never realized a Monaco could look that good...
  15. NY Modeler added a post in a topic Revell 1983 Hurst Oldsmobile Cutlass   

    Outstanding!
