    Very clean build. Great job on the Vector bar & push bar is sweet. Nice touch with the tailgate lights.

    Viper GTS rebuild
    I received this kit already built in pretty bad shape . The paint was in several layers and super thick. Glue was everywhere. All of the glass was either missing or beyond repair so thanks to "Randy D" for saving me with new glass! I stripped all of the paint and started it over, here are the results.

    LAPD Hummer H2
    This was a fairly quick build that is based on a real 1:1 that LAPD uses as a PR tool. Homemade decals, all the chrome accents were done with my new chrome pen (highly recommended). Revell kit w/ Model Master Lacquers.

    detailed the motor a little & mounted it to the chassis. you can see that not all of the glue from the previous builder was removed.

    4th Gen Firebird
    Purchased this one as a junker. It was already assembled with tons of glue everywhere and terrible paint. I stripped away all the original paint and salvaged what I could to rebuild it. The color is testor's firery orange over flat black which made it to GM "Sunset Orange Metallic". All the body paint is finished , currently working on everything else.

    70 1/2 Camaro
    this build was based off a 1:1 that I saw at a car show. The kit is the AMT baldwin Motion Camaro, I decided against the side exit pipes after having problems with the exhaust manifolds. I also had a lot of problems getting the front end of the chassis to mount correctly. Paint is plain Testor's white with one coat clear that was polished out. Everything is pretty much out of box except for the stripes.

    This is an awesome idea. I like the black wheels over the cragar style.

    Revell Viper Glass Wanted
    If anyone can help out, I need pretty much all the glass from the Revell Viper GTS kit. Front & Rear windshield, Headlights & turn signal lights. Could also use the Passenger side view mirror as well. I have plenty of parts to trade.
    This is the kit FYI:     http://www.revell.com/model-kits/cars/85-6359.html#.WNqsAqK1s2w

    This is sweet, I never knew these were ever casted. Reminds me of Hodges' car from the movie Colors.
