  1. Tim, thank you for bringing your thread to my attention. I have some panels, much less complex than yours, that I will need to do in brass, so I might pick up a thing or two here , for sure. Outstanding work!
  2. Thanks, Tim! I will definitely check out your thread.
  3. Dan, thanks for the comments. I can completely agree with you on having a dedicated space, and I'm glad to see you being productive. I thoroughly enjoyed your last build.
  4. It’s been a while since I worked on this one. I’m planning to keep going and see this one through. It’s hard to believe I started this over 6 years ago! Since my last update, I added the side cage bars and the nerf bars. The nerfs will get pulled in later as it goes together, so I can line them up with the tires. I have a permanent place to work now, which I've never had before, so I am hoping it leads to a lot more progress!
  5. Hi Steve, I absolutely love it. I met Sam Hanks on a few occasions, as he and his wife Alice were family friends. While Sam has long passed, Alice is still around and keeps in touch with my family. On my first trip to the Indy 500 in 1990 , I had the pleasure having breakfast with Sam on the morning of Carb Day at the Speedway Motel, where I was introduced to Mario Andretti (but that's another story). That was an such an incredible memory, for sure, and Sam was such a nice, humble man. I have had that book forever, too. It's a great one. On page 20 is "Grandpa" Ted Halibrand from his days working with Kurtis. The midget looks fantastic. Art
  6. Hi Mike! Thanks for the kind comments. Hope you’re doing well. Art
  7. Jeff, it was pretty good. The real nose kind of looks like a add on, and this has the same look to me.
  8. Great build, Charlie! I am really impressed with all of the scratchbuilding you did on this one. -Art
  9. Looking good, Dan! Great work on that hood. You deserve to be proud of that. -Art
  10. Another fantastic effort, Francis! The fact that your machining skills are self-taught is impressive, and very inspiring. -Art
  11. Hi Francis, I'm so glad you put this link in your footer, as I missed this until now. What a magnificent build! Gives a great idea of what to expect as you get closer to completing your truck. Again, beautiful build!
  12. Hi Shawn, Welcome to the forum! So Cal is a good place to be a modeler, especially if you want to make it a social activity as well. We have a lot of shows (when there's not a pandemic!) to go to, that have swap meets and contests or even just gatherings. We have a show out in Chatsworth that always falls on the first Sunday in May called the So Cal Open, in conjunction with a full size car show, that's a pretty good time. You can get updates on the show, and other area events, at laskiscale.com. Your builds look great! I would love to see them in person. Look forward to more! Art
