Hi Gregg, I'm posting my conversion of the Scion Xb dashboard to left-hand drive. I'm also posting a shot of the back which shows some of the work/changes behind. The conversion isn't perfect (or finished) but will get me past my aversion to right hand drive. (with the exception of replicating race cars.) Would enjoy seeing more conversions, as there must be more out there. Brian
Hi Tom, I love the builds, well done. I especially love the under-hood slant-six...so glad you didn't glue the hood closed. My first car was a Dart with that same mighty mill, and it kinda' looked just like that. Thanks for posting, Brian.
Hi Harry, That is a pretty build, but I am especially taken with the design and execution of the woodwork. But it is all so pretty really, and so crisp and clean! A pleasure to see, thanks for posting it Harry. Brian ps I just have to tell you that I smile every time I read your Groucho quote.
Hi Ferby, Now, that is nicely done! I really like the profile. I like the coves at each wheel. I like the paint and scallops...I like it all. Did I say I really like the profile? Nice build Ferby, thanks for posting it. Brian
Hi Tom, That is so cool. Didn't know that you were into that sort of thing, and I find that cool as well. I really enjoy your appreciation of the period materials,styling, craft, and workmanship...it couldn't be in more approving hands. Thanks for showing it Tom. Brian
Hi Dann, That is a beautiful build, and I just love the under-hood view...it makes me want to keep looking at it. I also like the look of the rivets, but I can't get my head around their installation.("photo etched parts from Model Car Garage that are placed on there individually.) Zounds. Really nicely done Dann, thanks for posting it. Brian
Hi Mr. Metallic, Hector, Dale, Jeremy, Ron, Michael, Dan, Andy, and John, Thank you all for your kind comments. It was fun having it at the NNL Nationals, which was a wonderful show, with incredible builds on the tables. (I also had a good time in the "toy show" vendors area, where despite comments that it was smaller than years before, I found and saw items I have never seen before, and had a thoroughly enjoyable time.) John, I am especially appreciative of your comments, given your work. (John had an impeccably detailed and cleanly built John Player Special Lotus on display, with more to see with each viewing...it was probably my favorite build at the show.) Thanks again to everyone for looking in. This hobby means a lot to me, and I am flattered to be a part of the hobby community, where I can meet and make friends with some wonderful people. I am a lucky man, and thankful for it. Brian
