    Thanks, Pat I remember him working on that actually...on his bench even. Ginger is a sweet lady.

    Here is the cover for you. Congrats to Marcos while I am at it!

    MCM #171 Bud Lefevre
    I just wanted to say I recognized those cars on the cover right off the bat and thought "what the?".
    It was nice to see them and read about Bud in MCM again. I think it's really cool that though most
    people forget the ones no longer with us, MCM honored Bud Lefevre and brought thoughts of our
    friend again into our minds.
    I had the pleasure of knowing Bud personally and have been to his dinner table and his workbench.
    Bud left an impression on so many of us, probably even more of you that didn't know him..you saw
    his killer hot rods and drag car models at Toledo NNL for many years. I only got the privelage to see
    them in person a couple of times before he passed. I live in Omaha, Nebraska , so getting to Ohio
    costs a bunch and is 12 hours one way.
    Well I am not trying to be sappy, nor do I claim any fame to having known him....I just want to give
    props for keeping Bud's memory alive!
    Bud gave me one of his projects, a 1/16 scale '55 Chevy drag car that he was scratchbuilding the
    chassis and wheels for. One of these days I am going to finish it for him. He sold a replica '56 Nomad
    of Randall Klein's drag wagon and had it dropped at my house on the way to him to ensure any loose
    parts could be put back on and then I could deliver to Randall myself. Well..the car had a bunch of
    parts come off and some broke HAH! I tell ya what....I felt very "cool" to be able to take HIS work to
    my bench and repair it. I don't take credit for the results, but it's something I won't forget...
    Just taking a seat outside NNL



    Here is the Nomad if anyone would like to see it.

    I have not posted in a long time, but I felt this must be said and applauded...thanks MCM!


    Feel free to share memories and photos...I would love to see them.

  3. RodBurNeR added a post in a topic kit instruction site link   

    Hi everyone, I haven't been here for awhile being busy with life and things.
    I was told there was a thread about my site, so I had to check it out.

    Thanks for all of the kind words and I really do get pleasure in knowing the site
    is being used! It's free to everyone and is definately a work in progress that is
    going to take many years to ever complete....if that's even possible? lol

    I could not do it , if it were not for the help of the BUNCHES of modelers
    around the globe that pitch in or donate. Thank you, I enjoy doing this and
    love seeing all of these kits!

    The best way to search is by going to the main page and clicking on the brand
    you want and go from there. I don't have a search engine installed ,because this
    is an offset of my club's site and the results you would find , won't always be
    instructions related.....not to mention, I would have to do more work and edit
    everything already there LOL

    If you can't find what you need, it's simple to send me an email making a request
    or just go to the MKIBA forum and ask. Sometimes it takes awhile before someone
    comes up with what you need, but we always get them.

    Some forums out there have the logo at the bottom of their main page for quick reference.

  5. RodBurNeR added a post in a topic I am curious....what is the coolest thing you have done?   

    I stayed away from gangs and drugs by building models.
  6. RodBurNeR added a post in a topic Revell preview photos from Toledo NNL #31   

    I for one am really looking forward to the '48! I think it's awesome that Revell has been adding and changing things in their kits to please those of us who love traditional styled rods and kustoms. These things like chopped tops, hubcaps , whitewalls, kustomizing parts etc....that's what keeps me buying "new" kits. Otherwise....I hunt for the oldies to build what I love. (to each their own)

    uh....ahem....hack! What about me? I am 36 and restored an original....cool is as cool does, momma always said.
  8. RodBurNeR added a post in a topic your not going to like this   

    Just an FYI, I think most all of those photos were taken from my fotki. In fact, one of the videos showed nothing but pics of my model. I am not mad, I am honored?...it's just cool that someone else liked them that much! I didn't build all of the models he put in the videos, but I did have permission to save those photos in "my favorites" from my own forum. That's all from me, I thought I should reply since the pics came from my fotki...I don't care if anyone wants to use the pics as long as they don't claim the work as their own.

    Thanks guys!

    Gary, yes I saw it and watched it online being built. I had a feeling the kit would be reissued because of it. I guess the new issue will have different wheels and some other changes?
