  1. Yes, I finished the Camaro last year.........Here's a couple pics of it completed.
  2. I used those 'craft jewels' for the lights on this one as well.......I once found a pack of the clear smooth style but haven't seen them for a while...most of the craft store gems have the 'diamond cut textures' however.
  3. Started back on getting this one a bit further along as I wait for some other stuff in the paint booth to dry... AMT merc custom...
  4. Thanks everyone, also working on the AMT '64 Marauder kit and should have some pics of that soon..
  5. A couple more.....[I'll grab rear shots after it's finished]
  6. Here's some of the final body fitment and prep before off to the paint booth....May go with a metallic or metal flake emerald green, also have modified decals for the standard Bel-Air side trim....Gonna try and keep it clean and not cluttered with sponsor stickers everywhere.....Maybe a few minimal ones here and there, but not overbearing....
  7. yeah, it's me..LOL...been back at the bench trying to finish up a bunch of projects I've had sitting around...I hope to get a few more done before the year turns over...
  8. Mild pro street project based on the AMT kit......
  9. Been working on this one recently, chassis work so far, more to do but coming along fairly well...
  10. Thanks everyone, great to be back building again. Been a few years since I finished anything and still have some to 'half-builts' to get done, so looking forward to completing more in the coming months.
  11. thanks guys, I'll post some updates as soon as I have some more progress on this thing...Haven't worked on a single model in well over a year..
  12. Attention: Ronald McDonald, Your company vehicle has arrived!!.... Nice work Chuck, I like it..... It's quite cool. Heck, I'd drive it around town......Hope it has A/C though....[it's 95 degrees here right now].
  13. That's cool man, I used the stovebolt in my version as well... Nice job!
  14. I just called Summit Racing equipment and asked if they carried working starters for 1/25 scale SBC chevrolet v-8's....Wanna take a guess as to what I was told?... [i was placing a regular order and asked the guy just for kicks to see what he'd say]....He was laughing hysterically.
  15. How about the tool set needed to work on something that small?....That alone would be a challenge. Sockets, feeler gauges, plasti-gauge,.....etc..!! Yeah right. I'll just run over to the Matco tool truck and get a 1/25 scale tool set....No prob.
  16. Did you find any info on that "phantom 1/25 scale internal combustion V-8 engine" yet? Obtaining information on something that amazing must be hard to come by. I'm certainly eager to learn more about it, so I'll continue to patiently await for the updates.............Thanks, Jeff PS.... Does anyone know if Fel-Pro sells gasket sets for 1/25 scale chevy SBC's? What about timing chain sets? Anyone know of timing chains sold in 1/25 scale? I know, I'll go with a Pete Jackson gear drive....Wait a sec!!...Will old watch gears work instead? How about carburators? Does holley sell 1/25 scale 750 or 850 double pumpers? and what about fuel pumps?....I'm confused now. Sorry for the questions, but inquiring minds want to know.
  17. I dunno man, If Augie had truly created a "running" 1/25 scale SBC chevy-V-8 internal combustion engine, it would have been featured on every front cover of every modeling magazine that there ever was/is....I don't think something like that would have been "forgotten about" and would now require some deep digging and looking around to find documentation. An engine like that in 1/25th, would have been epic...I'm not trying to call you a fibber/truth stretcher, but it seems strange that none of the Top hobbyists and scale auto builders I have talked to and know are aware of this Astounding Engine. Something like that surely would have ended up in the GSL museum or equivalent... I guess I'm one of those "show me/don't tell me" types...I'm looking forward to learning more about this 8th wonder of the modeling world...I hope I can see pics of it running and functioning..WIP files would be fantastic...........Thanks, Jeff
  18. Glad you approve my good chum....You're the wind beneath my wings.
  19. It's a good post...I like what you said. I guess with what's happened here lately, I was reading this topic with a different frame of mind....It was just kind of humerous to me at the time... Good post though.....Jeff
