  1. I love those bullet racers! You really captured the feel of the original. David G.
  2. Always happy to help! Thank you Mattias, that's just what I was going for. Thanks Tom. It's a fun kit to build. It assembles easily and has good detail where it's needed. I did have a little trouble with the front axle binding in the relief passage cast into the oil pan and block. I ended up filing the area out enough to allow the engine to sit properly in the chassis and keep just a little friction on the axle. I'm not fond of model cars that roll freely. David G.
  3. Coming along nicely Geoff! Any more shine on the paint than what you have there would probably exceed original factory specs! David G.
  4. Excellent solid looking build. I noticed in the last photo that the side mirror is reflecting the chrome trim on the door. There's also the subtle shadow detail of the seats and body recesses, whatever wash or other technique you used worked perfectly. These are the kinds of details that I call "invisibles". Optical details that many people wouldn't consciously notice but add to the overall feel of realism. Beautiful work. David G.
  5. I really like where you're going with this. David G.
  6. Thanks Alan, I'm glad you agree. For your wagon you might want to see if you can find a three pedal assembly part from another kit that you can glue up under the dashboard and just remove the pedals cast into the floor. David G.
  7. I know it's been a little while, so here's an update. I'm getting the dreaded 404 Error again, so I'm going to post this piecemeal. There are a couple of design conflicts with this kit. The transmission is a manual shift unit with a hole in the floor for a gearshift lever. The interior has a brake pedal for an automatic and no gear selector or turn signal stalk on the steering column. So I added those, along with the gear indicator or "PRNDL" Here's a different angle that shows the levers a little better. I think the Tamiya Flat Earth is a much better option for the seat inserts than the NATO Brown. I have a bit of touch up work to do on the carpet and one door panel. Other than that this interior is mostly done. As always, thanks for taking the time to look and please feel free to comment. David G.
  8. I've had some luck with Dupli-Color metallic paints. The flake size is fairly small and very consistent. I painted this interior with Dupli-Color Medium Quasar Metallic and Medium Maui Blue Metallic. It's an old photo but it should be good enough to convey the impression. Let me know if you'd like the paint numbers and I'll upload a snap of the labels. David G.
  9. Looks like you bailed just in time James! David G.
  10. Very cool! I especially like the bumpers. David G.
  11. Cool concept. looks like it's coming along nicely. David G.
  12. That came out real nice. David G.
  13. I always enjoy seeing your hover vehicles. They look very real in an alternate universe kind of way. Thanks for taking the time to share them with us. David G.
