    It's another great addition to your preserved collection, Tom. Someday you need to bring that set out to GSL for everyone to see. And of course set it up at NNL East as a separate display.

    I have heard that Createx cannot be sanded. It's an all or nothing deal so a bleb or a run means you have to start all over. has anyone had experience with this?

    Great job, Al.

    Sorry, the previous link for Raceway Park didn't work. This one does.

    NNL East is in Wayne, New Jersey. It's just a hop and a skip from New York City and less than two hours from Philadelphia (south), and probably not much more than that from Boston (north). So you have a lot of choices. There are commuter trains that run all along the Northeastern coastline and despite recent events are really very safe. There are also commuter flights to those cities out of New York at fairly decent prices. I agree that NNL East is the show to catch if it fits your schedule. It is a model meet and display, not a contest, and you will find many of the people from this board who attend. There are also many of the top aftermarket vendors in attendance. In fact, Chris Hales, from Manchester, is the owner of C-4 resins, and has become a vendor. He will be attending again next year.

    Raceway Park is in Englishtown, New Jersey. That's about an hour south of Wayne and is a well known drag race venue. They do have events in April but I don't know what they'll have next April.

    Very similiar to a clone of Doug Dempsey's Car Model cover build from 1967 that I am working on for the Museum in SLC. This was done prior to the kit release and I am working from the dimensions outlined in the article. Interestingly I saw this model under construction at the time. Sadly it was lost in a flood not too long ago. This photo is an old one from a few years ago. If I get two minutes to spare I'll take new ones. This thing is fighting me all the way. Anyone know how to attach the clutch cable to the throwout lever? Yeah, it's that detailed.

    Has anyone tried these paints? Seems to be a new-to-the U.S. outfit.

    Apparently Buick is considering resurrecting the GN and GNX. Should have some power.
