  1. Gundam

    Cool! We in the car building community don't realize how big the Gundam thing is. Two years ago the hobby shop I go to regularly didn't have any Gundam. Now they have several shelves full of them. There one shop in Toronto solely dedicated to Gundam. We lament about no young builders but this is where the younger builders are.
  2. Very well done. Does look evil.
  3. Creature’s Surf Rod

    Now that's different! Great use of the Surf Rod and the Creature.
  4. 68 Firebird 400

    Lovely clean build. Makes that Firebird a standout.
  5. 1983 Volkswagen Caddy Mk1

    Very cool! I really like the Caddy pickups and have a C1 Models transkit in my stash.
  6. Penske Mustang

    Yes, Velocity U.S. is now MotorTrend on Demand and they get a lot more shows than we do up here. Discovery Velocity shows the same stuff over and over and over. Some one who had never watched it checked it out recently and said to me: "all the shows are 3, 4, 5 years old!" Yep! Some Australian Supercars or other racing series would be nice. But would they get advertisers? Even the Nascar races you see the same Pinty's and Toyota commercials repeatedly so who would advertise on non-known (so to speak) racing series?
  7. Morris Mini

    Very sharp little Mini!
  8. Message to FCA: Don't Mess With My Challenger!

    I think it will take much longer than 6 to 10 years, Mike. Think of how many millions of fossil fuel driven cars are on the road right now. They are not all going to be replaced in 6-10 years. There is no doubt that is the way we are going as well as non-self driven cars. Governments are (for some reason) pushing as hard for autonomous cars as they are for electric or alternate fuel source cars. But we are nowhere close to either and again it will take years to get all the fossil fuel, self driven cars off the roads. Maybe in small countries with excellent public transportation for the whole country but that certainly doesn't describe the USA or Canada.
  9. Spotlight Hobbies

    Yes, I've noticed the same thing since last evening. Awhile before it went down, Tom mentioned they were having issues that could affect some use of the board. I'm guessing the issues were bigger than first thought?
  10. Great job on your 24 hour build!
  11. 48 ford custom

    Cool modern interpretation of the 48 Ford!
  12. Monogram 57 chevy nomad

    Beautiful build!
  13. A Thought about the Magazine, etc.

    Like it or not "Gregg" pays for this site as well as publishes (when he can) the magazine. Don't refer to him as a mythical person. Just because you're new here and don't know him, don't denigrate him. Many of us know Gregg and have met him at shows. He is indeed a great guy. He's published a great magazine for a number of years and unfortunately due to Golden Bell publishing suddenly pulling out on him and continuing extreme back problems things are currently bogged down for the last couple of years.
  14. I think it just happened recently. I believe someone mentioned talking to the owner at the Southern Nats and they were talking about winding it down at that time. I guess it has finally happened.
  15. '89 Nissan Sunny Truck / Hasegawa / 1:24

    Well done & nicely weathered. Great build.
