    Well this isn't an opinion, it's factual experience...and I do know what I am talking about.  I have used Paypal for years now and have always used "payment for goods and services" for the protection it offers...only had 1 problem with the many transactions and Paypal refunded my costs quickly.  It is a very reliable service and usually the transactions are completed on a timely basis.

    Thanks Dave.  What color are you doing yours in?  I'm thinking of building another but can't decide on a color.

    I don't remember the exact figure but it was around $1,200.00.  I had to put a new battery in it and replaced the tires also.

    Yes, those are the kit tires.

    '61 Pontiac Ventura
    Finished this build a couple of weeks ago.  This is a model of my first car bought after getting out of the Army in August 1964.  Didn't have a whole lot of money but was lucky finding this one.  When I went into the Army in 1961 I sold a 1960 Catalina and was hoping to find another one when I got out but this was available so I snapped it up.
    The kit went together very well, what I have come to expect from Moebius.  Make a fantastic looking Poncho!

    Finished this build up last week.  Box stock.  This is an excellent kit to build......very little flash, very good fit and no alignment problems.  Moebius has really raised the bar with their kits and this is one great example.  Enjoyed this one so much I am going to build the rest of their pickups just for the pleasure I get out of building a well engineered kit.

    Another build I finished recently.  Box stock with custom decals.  I started this last year....got frustrated with mold lines, set it aside, started it again and got frustrated with fits so I set it aside again.  Pulled it out about 3 weeks ago and finished it up.  This kit has some terrible fits that require some creative work arounds but when finished looks pretty good.

    Just finished this one up.  Box stock except for the fender flares which I think give it a whole different look, it was one of the most enjoyable builds I have ever experienced......hardly any flash, and it fit together very nicely.  Only touchy assembly is getting the side windows in the doors aligned with everything else.

  14. modelercarl added a post in a topic What affordable oilers air compressor would you recommend   

    I agree with Brett on the Paasche.  I have had one of these for about 10 years now.....excellent for airbrushing models.
