  1. 67 Corvette coupe

    OK, I must be losing my mind! I thought this was the 1/12 car as the box art looks almost exactly like the car on that box. But indeed it's 1/25 and one giveaway is that the 1/12 kit body has a curious dip in the windshield header which this doesn't. In answer to your question Dominick.............ROG's boxes are always a bit bigger than ours here in the US and you have to remember they're dealing with metric as opposed to our standard measurement.
  2. Myd Lyfe Crysis ?

    One thing about time.........you know time is definitely marching on when people you went to school with, you're now reading their obituary in the news. I just ran across someone's obit I went to school with and I hadn't seen in over 40 years and he had died the other day. No mention of what happened, but 58 is still pretty young considering.
  3. Myd Lyfe Crysis ?

    Yup! Time waits for no one and there's that saying that come to mind "The best laid plans of mice and men". Something like that!
  4. 67 Corvette coupe

    Aaahhh! One of Revell's nicer kits! I'll be watching this one! Too bad that Revell didn't do other 1/12's like this one. A '63 split window would have been nice........it would have been something if they got adventurous and made a 1/12 '57 T-Bird. Keep up the VERY nice work!
  5. Steve, I can certainly relate! My place got flooded in 2011 and not long ago we had another close call in this area. Very seriously considering moving in the next few months. It's one of the reasons my building has slowed waaaay down. I don't want to get too involved with a WIP only to have to pack it away and move things in the next few months. There's also the reality of the neighborhood changing for the worst. I've had not one but two shootings (one was literally the house next to me, the other next to them), and not long ago there was another 'incident' in my area. This is not how it was when I moved here in 2006. So, it's time to move on. Get another place that's not flood prone and hopefully something that's a tad more isolated with neighbors that aren't drama prone.
  6. OK, one week to go before I make the trek from here in Central PA to Wayne, NJ for NNL East! I'll be getting there the day before as I want to get there for the meet and greet Friday night. Hope to see you guys at the restaurant next Friday afternoon. Should be as usual a FANTASTIC show! So who's all going??
  7. Ferrari 288 GTO Fujimi EM

    SUPER gorgeous! LOVE the blue! I have several of those EM series kits but not this one. NNL East is next weekend and I may put that on my list.
  8. 1961 Chevy

    I see you turned it into a Bel Air........VERY NICE! 👍👍
  9. Fujimi Ferrari Daytona Spider

    Randy, I built this one many years ago and just a bit of a caution.......before you mount the wheels permanently, you may want to file the hubs down just a bit. I found my wheels to stick too close to the edge, whereas on the actual car they're slightly inboard. This is coming along GREAT and this is one of my favorite Fujimi kits along with the Daytona coupe. I've got both kits now and I'd like to build either one of them again someday.
  10. 7 Muscle Cars I Hope Will Be Kitted Soon

    I've got a resin repop of the '64 Cutlass stillborn WIP which I will finish up hopefully before the year is out. I believe it was made by P&P?? I had a series of hood mishaps which nearly caused me to shelve it forever, but I think I got that licked now with a genuine plastic one. Other things are getting in the way right now in finishing it, so it'll be awhile.
  11. Wow Paul! I can't remember the last time I've seen one of those on the road! Those were once a staple of working class families and in fact, I believe when my Mom was learning to drive at the local driving school (circa 1967) that's what they had. That odd slanted B pillar sticks out in my mind. That would be one cool model to detail out!
  12. 73 Cutlass Supreme conversion

    If it were me trying to shape this, I'd add some plastic to the side of the quarters and work from there. You can shape and sand to whatever contours you need.........you'd have enough of a base to do so.
  13. Revell 2019

    From what I understand (and what would make the most sense), the new AAR is going to be a modified reissue of the new tool 'Cuda. I have to wonder if that hoary tooling of the previous one is still around. The second go round of that one wasn't super horrendous----the first one was IMO absolutely TERRIBLE!
  14. 73 Cutlass Supreme conversion

    Here are a few more shots of a '76 Cutlass formal roof. This can give you a better idea of how the rear window is shaped as they were all the same from '73-'77.
