I wish I could put my models on the table like that! If I did, my cats would have them on the floor in no time! As far as scales I have everything from 1/64 (Hot Wheels) to 1/8 scale. If it looks right, I'll take it if it's a vehicle I like.
Now THAT is nice! Many years ago, I owned a '76 with this body style......it did NOT look this sharp! Welcome to the forum, and I ordered a set of your volcano hubcaps not long ago........they are that nice!
I hear ya Bill! Just yesterday, I had delivered to my place a starter resin casting set. There are times when I needed a particular part, but I hate like heck to raid a kit just for that part. If I can cast it, then I'll always have it when necessary, and not needlessly rob a kit of parts that may be needed in case the fancy strikes to build it. Some poo-poo the idea of vendors on eBay doing just that-----parting out kits for hoods, wheels etc. I've got parts very recently (I got just the rear end out of a Bronco), and it saved me a ton of money from having to buy an entire kit, and then it sits for the next 20 years untouched and never built.
Emmanuel, I was wondering what brand of paint you used for the "Spring Green"? Was this a special mix on your own, or is there a paint brand that may be only available in France? I'm asking for someone who's having difficulty logging on the forum, and they'd like to know. Thanks in advance!
The shape of the beltline has always appeared wrong to me in the new tool Edsel. As you mentioned Dave, it's not tall enough particularly in the rear quarter window section where there should be much more of a dip. It's too flat and while it's fixable, you'd need to change that cove area to while one's at it. More work than I want to deal with for the moment as I have that kit (PE set and all), but the ambition hasn't struck me yet to tackle it.
Thanks for the pics Tim! Looking forward to the Chevy II's! I got a question for you............ Will the Chevy II kits (particularly the '64) include a six cylinder engine? It'll be nice to have another Chevy six available from this era instead of having to raid the Trumpeter kit for one, or the AMT '60 Chevy kit.
Tim (or anyone else), will the Chevy II's include a six cylinder (particularly the '64) engine? It'll be nice to have another Chevy six available from this era instead of having to raid the Trumpeter kit for one, or the AMT '60 Chevy kit.
Don't worry, someone in that other dimension when they realize that they don't need it, will throw it back to you! At least that's what I've always been told............... All kidding aside, I've always wondered about that too! I could swear I've heard the thing hit the wall and the floor, and could even zero in on where it SHOULD be, but darn of I could find it. Yup, there's gotta be another dimension!
The Trumpeter kit was a '63, and it had its share of foibles. I've not seen one built that didn't have difficulties in sitting too high, and from what I hear, it could be a very fiddly kit to get together. I had one (hardtop) but I sold it years ago as I lost interest in it. I still have the convertible kit, but it suffered from the windshield frame (A pillar) being waaaaaay too tall-------I remedied that right quick with lowering it a few scale inches, and putting it back in the box. Before.....................
