  1. When I saw the first pictures of this kit, I was very happy to see it being released. I've wanted to build one of these '70s Dodge Long Bed Pickups in Showroom Stock condition for a long time. Now it looks like it's going to be possible. The kit even comes with steelies and dog dish hubcaps, which is great news so I don't have to find them anywhere else. And of course, thanks Tim for a good review!
  2. Very nicely done '74 Satellite! It's always fun to see these a bit different body styles built. As always, the end result is just incredible. Everything seems to be just right. It's hard to say anything that hasn't been said already, so I'll just add - Great work!
  3. That turned out great! Really cool to see it being finished, I always enjoy these rare subjects. You nailed the body shapes and the overall look of that Falcon perfectly, which is probably the biggest challenge for a project like this. Fantastic work!
  4. Very nicely done model of a rarely seen car! As always, the paint work and BMF is nearly flawless. Overall a very nicely done Chrysler.
  5. Very nice Ford, but coming from your workbench that's not a surprise. All of the added extra detailing really paid off, the overall look is just right. One of the best '67 Fords I've ever seen in scale, can't wait to see your next project...
  6. Yesterday night when Cruising in Helsinki, Finland with my Chevy S10, I saw this clean Mazda Marella. These things used to be fairly common back in the day, but they had pretty bad rust issues so nowadays they are getting pretty rare. And a bit later, I drove past this small parking lot and saw a '64 Dodge Dart, so I had to stop by and check it out. Not the cleanest that I've seen, but not bad either. Really good looking car, and definitely better looking than the newer (and more common) Darts...
  7. I'm glad I saw this thread now, really nice fabrication with that Datsun Pickup. The Kart looks very good, too. I've never thought about these kits, but now after seeing your project, I just might have to buy one.
  8. This is looking really good. Love these Ramp Trucks, and actually I've had plans to build one for a long time. Too bad those Racer's Wedge kits seem to be so expensive. Luckily, it shouldn't be too hard to scratchbuild so guess I'll have to go that route. Anyway, your project looks really good. I'll be watching how this turns out.
  9. This looks like a great start! Those tires & wheels look really good on the Chevelle. Perfect starting point for a Street & Strip build.
  10. This is an interesting project. With your building skills, I know it's going to be fantastic when you're finished. That color choice is excellent and you can't go wrong with the Fireball Modelworks' items. I'll be watching since I've always wanted to build this kit.
  11. Mine is pretty simple actually. I've always been a Chevy guy and the Chevy W-Block (348, 409 and 427 Z-11) happen to be my favorite engines. Hopefully some day I can afford building one 409 to be installed in some body.
  12. Wow, this looks really nice! I'm not a Porsche guy, but I've always liked how this 550 Spyder looks. You did really good job with this, and big thumbs up for this unique subject too. Never heard of the Fernando Pinto Models. How much did the kit cost?
  13. Thanks for the kind words guys! And, sorry for the late reply, been really busy with other life so haven't had time to build or visit here much since the latest update. Carl, the engine was painted with Tamiya TS-23 Light Blue. I have to say that I'm a huge fan of these Tamiya Sprays, they work so well and have a killer selection of different colors.
  14. And I'm pretty sure that's exactly what would happen if one was parked in a car show in the States. It's funny how many times when I have posted a picture of some car that was pretty common around here back in the day, bunch of guys from USA are scratching their heads as they have never seen one. But, of course I understand that, since many of the cars were never sold to US market.
  15. I can imagine that ! Back then those were pretty common here in Finland as well. Nowadays they can be seen on the road from time to time, but can't say that they would be very common anymore.
