    Yes now it's there...
    WOW that is impressive!  Did he master the whole kit or is it a copy.
     Thanks for sharing,it is a shame he couldn't make the resin business work,he did some very nice stuff.

    Nice job...
    Ford did make a similar body in 1932..the roadster pickup.
  4. mike 51 added a post in a topic Poll : AMT '40 Ford or newer Revell ?   

    The last AMT 40 I saw was in pretty poor condition (as you would expect for a 60 year old mold with little apparent maintance)  
    The Revell kit is far better in every respect.

    VERY nice...
     
    how/where did you get those wheels?

    I noticed Revell just added it to their new product list this morning.
     
    my local hobby shop just called to say mine had come in...

    They refused to even see her?  They might need a referral from a Medical Doctor before  they could treat her and bill  Medicare.
    They refused cash?   I can't imagine why they would do that.  
    I suggest you call other care providers in your area to see how they deal with Medicare patients...good luck.

    thanks for sharing both.
  10. mike 51 added a post in a topic Keeping the Mustang Series Going   

    Not really a big early Mustang fan....
    .but speaking of Mustang kits in a series,
     I sure would like a full detail '14-17  Mustang kit.  
    (a coupe AND a convertible would be best)
    not trying to change the subject tho

    Missed this 1st time around....very nice!
  12. mike 51 added a post in a topic BOS Models' 1/18 "52 Dodge Coronet and Jaguar Mk8   

    That Dodge seems like an odd car to model...both are nicely done tho.
  13. mike 51 added a post in a topic Riviera duet : 66 VS 69   

     
    Nice job on both....

    The Revell of Germany 300SLR kit (race version of the 300sl from the 50's) has tall n taller narrow rubber tires that fit Revell 48 Ford rims.
     The "fronts" look good on fendered street rods and the "rears" look good on fenderless cars.  
    Various  Japanese VW kits have great front tires for hot rods.
    (I realize you were not seeking hot rod style big n littles...but I thought this might help vs. those old AMT tires that never looked right to me)
    Sorry no pics. 
  15. mike 51 added a post in a topic Frame swap for '48 Ford?   

    yes just the dropped axle and the rear spring/radius rod assembly.
     I think the custom version may have shorter front shocks...my kit isn't available to me to check right now.
