  1. That is the coolest thing I've seen all day. Wow!
  2. Thank you all for your help identifying these! One of the many, many great things about this board is everyone's willingness to help with even oddball stuff.
  3. It's a mystery! Looking at Scalemates.com, I thought it might be the Ebbro 1/20 Lotus 49C, but the wing is wrong for that, based on the instructions on that site. Almost everything else matches. Well, I think so anyway. https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/6/5/2/155652-34-instructions.pdf https://www.scalemates.com/kits/ebbro-20006-lotus-49c--155652
  4. I'm wondering if this is actually something other than 1/25 or 1/24 scale. It seems a touch bigger than other stuff I have.
  5. I picked up a few kits some months ago, and these three were in the lot. I believe the two Indy cars (Indy? Formula?) to be Lotus cars - but I'm not sure. The Porsche also has me stumped. Clearly it's a 911, or something related to the 911, but I'm trying to identify the kit. Any ideas?
  6. A Studebaker or Hudson pickup would be very popular Maybe that's next? One can only hope.
  7. I wish Mr. Olson well, also. Sounds like he's been through a real rough patch of late. But, you do think he'd update his website and Facebook page to indicate that either he's not taking orders or is behind or whatever. Or give the information to someone he trusts and have them do it for him. I gave up on my order and asked PayPal to start the refund process. We'll see how that goes. As to Fireball Modelworks - incredible pieces and great pricing! 5 Stars!
  8. I am enjoying watching your progress. I've been thinking about buying this kit.
  9. I'd like to build the 1957 Chevy that Fireball Roberts ran at the 1958 Darlington race. It appears to have had 6 lug wheels, carburetor and not fuel injection, and presumably a basic rollcage - which I guess was black. I have the Fred Cady decals and that's about it. The goal: Available kits for me to pick from: Was considering using the Revell Black Widow kit for chassis and interior, although the FI engine would be incorrect. Thoughts?
  10. I, too, got my replacement parts. I'm happy with them. Looking forward to building this one.
  11. This is an incredible build. We were fortunate enough to have Sam bring this to our local club last earlier this month.
  12. These are amazing. Glad you brought your Ecto to the club meeting earlier
  13. Nice work! One of my favorite cars from the movie, actually.
  14. Wow! I love this build
  15. Looking for part #8 - the floor board ("interior floor" as Revell calls it). Also - even a longer shot - does anyone have a set of the Olson Brothers Roadster Door Inserts that they would be willing to part with? Trades or .... I'm in North Carolina. thanks!!!
  16. That is an excellent way to fix the weird side trim on the AMT kit! Very cool build.
  17. We'll see how it fits once I actually start assembly.
  18. Got a little bit of polishing done for the roof and hood. Still need to polish the sides. Polishing always (well, nearly always) makes me nervous - as I've burned through the paint before. But so far, so good. Not as incredible as many of the builds I see on this board. There is still some orange peel here and there, but I'm hesitant to go too far. Typically (for me) messy workbench: I plan to mask and paint the rubber trim once I finish polishing. Cowl panel should be black and not red. I also plan to replicate a spray-in bed liner for the bed:
