  1. "Don't sweat the details, just build like you did as a kid!" Oh, so I have to use a whole tube of orange Testor's' glue in my build, enough to deform the roof to keep the glass intact? HAHA!!
  2. This has been my mantra for many years Gary and I bring this to every build I do.
  3. I've always loved the Cheez Whiz car and your model is doing it justice. Very cool project!

    1971 Duster

    Really nice! Too bad about the decals though!
  5. What a great build! You're right - it does look very wicked from the rear! Great color too!
  6. Absolutely gorgeous build! Great brass work! This car is on my "to do someday" model building list, but in styrene.
  7. I love this! I checked out the other pictures from your Under Glass post, and WOW! That dual opening tonneau cover is too cool!
  8. She was in jail for shooting her husband but I think she was recently released after a nine year sentence.
  9. Yes, those front wheelwell locations have always bugged me too! Nice job on relocating those! I like where you are going with this!
  10. One of my favorite FEDs! Nice job!
  11. Never saw one in black! It looks fantastic!
  12. For those thinking of replicating this car, please note that the wheelbase was stretched and the front fender openings were moved 6 1/2 inches forward. More information: https://ringbrothers.com/1972-amc-javelin-amx-defiant
  13. Tom, you and I share the same local Hobby Lobby. I always wondered why the clearance models were not there and now I know. I'm thinking the mystery buyer is a (re)seller and not a builder.
  14. Unfortunately, unless you can get at least 2 variations on the same kit, we will never see these.
  15. I just did the same thing last week. I bought what I thought was the lacquer version of Sublime spray, because that is what the sign on the rack said, only to get home and find someone had put the enamel version in that slot. Went back today and was able to swap them without incident. However, I did have to move ANOTHER enamel version from the lacquer slot to find the actual lacquer can.
  16. "Cough it up"? Pun intended? HAHA! George and I headed back to Toledo after being absent for a few years, driving from southeastern PA to OH. On Saturday, the toy show was winding down and the NNL had not yet opened. I was getting kind of hungry, so bought a hot dog from a vendor who had one of those hot dog roller machines. Looks like it had been on there a while, but I was hungry and bought it. Big mistake! About an hour into the show, my stomach was churning. I had to have George take me back to the hotel. He went back to the show and I spent the rest of the night in the bathroom - both ends. I was feeling not that much better in the morning. The usual 9 hour drive home was interrupted by stopping at nearly every single rest stop on the Ohio and Pennsylvania turnpikes. And I probably slept most of the way home. I'm still surprised that George still even talks to me! Ahh, memories! Do you think I can talk him going to the last one this coming October?
  17. George, I think that was the last time we went to the Toledo show. And also the year of the infamous Toledo Hot Dog Incident.
  18. Best build of this kit ever! And putting that upholstery pattern in there was perfect!
  19. You mean something like this? I built this from the Revell 66 GTO and a 65 Chevelle wagon, before the 66 Chevelle wagon was released. I did it as a phantom 2 door wagon. I had to scratchbuild the taillight area to match a Pontiac. The 66 Chevelle wagon will get you there a little easier. Here is the link to my Fotki folder which also shows some of the cuts I did. https://public.fotki.com/kas1256/models/66-gto-wagon/
