Hey Tim... Just thought I would share this Falcon... I took pics of this back at one of the Goodguys shows I saw In Pleasanton California Probably back around 1996 when I was showing my El Camino there. If you would like me to remove the pics just let me know. Don't want to take away from your killer build.
For Resin Bodies and parts I use westley's bleche wite. Been using it for years for Plastic kits I soak in warm water with dawn and then I give the parts a quick scrub with a tooth brush and some more dawn. Rinse and then air dry.
Count me in... I will be there for sure!!! Cameron here is the link to it, it is what I will call the Holy Grail (or Super Bowl) of all model shows. It's a 4 day model show with seminars, an auction, swap meet and great time to meet many of the builders from around the U.S. and many other countries. main link: http://www.gslchampionship.org/ What is GSL: http://www.gslchampionship.org/what-is-gsl/
One show that I think needs to be on everyone's bucket list to attend at least once to experience it.
Tim... I am super stoked to see you are already getting back to the bench. I will be following along on this build to the end. I know you are going to knock it out of the park with your skills and talents. I am really looking forward to see what you are going to surprise us with on this build.
Tim.... I am speechess and no idea what to say other than I am So Sorry about what happened. I am still in disbelief about it. This Henry J had to be one of the best builds of all times. The level of detail that you have achieved and gone to has been amazing. In my opinion you are one of the best builders out there. I know it had to be heart breaking when this happened. I can totally relate to the long hours that have been put into this build and it seems that even though thru the trouble you encountered that you still have a positive attitude thru this. I do like the idea of you using many of the other components on your other builds and I have no idea how bad of a hit the chassis took but is there anyway to salvage any of it by chance? I know when I took a few steps back with my funny car chassis a while back when I realized things were wrong and I had to fix it at least 2 if not 3 times that I wish I would of just scratch built the whole thing now. I am sure I could build a better chassis for it now after going thru all I did and learning from it. I am sure this is true for you that you learned so much goin thru this build.. I know things are too fresh for you to think about this at the momemt but I would suggest taking some time on some other builds and then when the time is right consider possibly doing another frame for this build. You are one heck of a builder who's work I look up to sND admire....keep your chin up and we are here for you when you are ready to get back to the bench. Again I am truly sorry you are having to go thru this.
John.... Now that's an update!! The bike is looking Killer!! I love what you have done with all of the body panels that you scratch built. You have to be the fastest builder around. Kepp the awesome updates coming
Brad.... Tell me it isn't so?? I need to pick myself up off the floor..... Am I dreaming or are you finally starting a 1/16th build?? It's only taken me long enough to twist your arm to start one of these . I have to tell you that you may just get hooked on these 1/16th scale builds. I am super excited to see what you do to this build. I really like your idea on how you want to build this and going with fender less is going to be sweet. As for a rear end I would recommend one from TDR they have a Ford 9" as well as a Mark Williams set up. I look forward to updates on this.
Art... Thank you. I am following you on the water soluble bummer that it made the faces bleed. But man the results you got with the epoxy looks great. I really love the behind the scenes pics of the guages. DId you draw and print those decals yourself?? Mind if I ask why type of paper and printer if so? Keep up the great work and I am looking forward to your next update.
Art... that dash is gorgeous my friend. Wow what a difference between what you did and the kits dash. You knocked it out of the park. Is the glass in the guages made from the glue I picked up from you at the DSC?
