    Yes, a friend is driving it nowadays here in Finland and it's still in nice condition even if it has an old paint job and everything. Those old pics are cool, I'll have to show them to him...
    And the model is really nicely done, too, as your builds always are! Great work!
  2. W-409 added a post in a topic Aoshma (BEEMAX) Nissan 240RS Rally   

    Yes, I understand that, but I'd guess it would sell better with engine tooled up as well. Though I have no idea how much it would cost to tool it so maybe it would bump the kit price too far. And it seems to be popular with these European/Japanese car model kits that they have no engines.
    It's good that there is a starting point for the engine. It's highly possible though that I'll skip this one anyway. It's not that interesting subject that I'd start the modifications to fit an engine in there.

    This is an outstanding build! Definitely one of the best Rear Engine Dragster models I've ever seen. Your detailing is spectacular inside and out and the overall look is just right. Really nice work!

    Wow that is one fantastic looking Nomad! But of course that's no surprise when I saw who is the builder, you do awesome work. Very nice paint job and superb BMF work too. Engine detailing finishes it off... Simply beautiful!
  5. W-409 added a post in a topic 1962 Opel Rekord   

    That's very nice! Couple of times I've been thinking about buying one of these bodies, it would look great as an old Drag Car, but never bought one yet. Nice to see one built Factory Stock too, especially when it's done as nicely as this. Excellent work overall! Nice and smooth paint job and flawless detailing too. All BMFs on chrome trims are so nice and smooth plus that I like that minor weathering in chassis too.
  6. W-409 added a post in a topic 1953 Hudson Hornet Mild Custom   

    That's a really nice looking Hudson! I like the colors on it a lot, but what really caught my eyes right away was that DeSoto grill! A brilliant idea that I'll have to steal for some of my projects too... Also I like the hop up parts on that engine. Overall a very tasty Custom.
  7. W-409 added a post in a topic 65 Chevy ll pro street.   

    Nice work! Great to see one of these built even though this AMT kit is not one of the bests... Good looking paint job and a mean looking stance. It definitely looks like you shouldn't mess up with that in traffic lights!
    And BTW: It's '65, not '63.
  8. W-409 added a post in a topic Carl Casper`s : Phonebooth: Finished Pictures   

    WOW! John does it again, yet another true masterpiece! As always, everything is just right on this build. The overall look is very realistic and you did fantastic work with that paint job. My favorite part is detailing, though. As always, the model is flawlessly detailed inside and out, for example I can't remember when I've last seen throttle linkages behind the gas pedal, as usually they are added to the carburetor only. Also Alclad work on those engine parts is just spectacular. They look exactly like real metal, and that's not easy to do.
    Really nice work again.

    Wow, incredible! I agree with the others, this is not an easy kit to work with, and unfortunately that is often seen on the final result as well. But definitely not in here, fantastic work! The overall look is just right, all parts fit well together and it looks realistic.
  10. W-409 added a post in a topic Moebius 1961 Pontiac Ventura   

    Looks great! I can't understand the idea why to make those windows like that. I'd definitely prefer window trims being molded to the body rather than on the windows... But that is the only problem in these new Moebius kits I guess.
    Yours turned out fantastic! Really nice paint job catches my eyes first, as black is definitely the hardest color to get right. Sharp BMF work too, and little lowering looks good also. Great job.
  11. W-409 added a post in a topic Correcting molded in / chrome headlights   

    I've always painted those chrome headlights with gloss white and before the paint dries, start wiping it off from the center so that the chrome will be seen through the white paint. This is an easy and fast way to improve the look, and if you happen to wipe a bit too much paint off, just apply some more paint to the headlights and start again.

  12. W-409 added a post in a topic 41 Willys Lead Sled   

    Very cool build, you don't see many Willys Lead Sleds built! To be honest I've planned doing a same type of build some day, so this is a good inspiration. Nice work with the body mods, all of the shapes are just right resulting a nice and smooth Custom. Really nice work!
  13. W-409 added a post in a topic 1932 Vicky   

    Very nice Vicky! I too like that Flathead with three carbs on it and your color choice is spot on too. Only thing I'd change would be the wheels, as otherwise this build looks really Old School but those modern aluminum wheels just don't look right in there. But that's of course just my opinion. All that matters is that the overall look is very nice and you had fun building it, of course !
  14. W-409 added a post in a topic 75 Ford Granada   

    Wow! I didn't see this until now, but excellent work as always! I got excited too when I saw the pics, but then I remembered that it's a small scale kit. Anyway you did an excellent job. Great paint, sharp BMF and just right overall look. One of the bests I've seen built from this kit.
  15. W-409 added a post in a topic Aoshma (BEEMAX) Nissan 240RS Rally   

    These old Group B Rally Cars are pretty cool, even though I'm usually not that much into building European or Japanese cars. I started to get excited about this one already, but Why oh why it is a Curbside?! I think I have to leave it to the hobby shops then...
