  1. I don't have anything in particular I need, I just came across you and am always looking for VW and Porsche stuff.
  2. I usually get mine at the local farm & home store.. I hadn't thought of that, I'll have to stop by Tractor Supply!
  3. I came across Fink's Garage and wondered if anyone has ordered from him? https://finksgarage.wordpress.com/
  4. I hope to do some resin casting later this month. A friend used to use disposable syringes with large bore blunt needles, I think they are for feeding liquids, to 'inject' resins into small molds. Does anyone know of a source for these?
  5. It should work. If I remember, Foose's real truck uses a custom chassis and Corvette front suspension and steering so it could should work with maybe a little track width and wheelbase modification under any of the Moebius trucks.
  6. I'm declaring my entry finished. This Westie is powered by a Subaru WRX engine in order to get it up to the speeds needed to be competitive. She comes with a full load of electronic surveillance gear should allow it to keep up with any sticky issues and her three person crew is seated in comfort in Porsche seats. She is running lightweight wheels and Pirelli Centurato tires. She has two Cibie fog lights and an LED light bar. I worked in a couple of tributes to Brock Yates and his original Cannonball and One Lap races on the decal sheets. The roof carries four coms antennae for the scanners and two satellite dishes to power the Pear Computer laptops.
  7. TO the moderators, this needs to be in the finished column rather than WIP. Can you move it or tell me how to move it? Thanks.
  8. Here's the pictures from my 'Photo Shoot'. I need to do some touch-ups and clean-ups. But here you go.
  9. I'm not good at writing how-to's, but since I've got my Vannonball entry done so I'm going to show my wrap up pictures. The Revell VW Vanagon kit is nice, but it is old and it fought me the whole way. The molds were showing their age I guess. The clear parts were molded with a lot of flash on every piece and all the parts could use some better locating tabs. I'm going to hit the high points as I didn't take many pictures. I figured the guys would go high tech, so she has two laptops, a bank of scanners and other interception gear and radar detectors. I used three Porsche 911 seats out of the Revell 911s for the guys to be comfortable. I modeled the van's markings on the AUDI and VW transporters used by the race teams, combined with a little inspiration from the Polish Racing Drivers of America.
  10. Austin can be a car spotter's paradise. Here's a couple of cool things I saw this week.
  11. Regarding this kit, does anyone make a decal set for the engine, or maybe even a set of decals for the record-setting Bonneville Go-Kart that RMR sells?
  12. Send me an address and I'll send it to you. Probably won't be able to get it out until next weekend though.
  13. A couple weeks ago I found a replacement for a kit I built and lost a long time ago! I was searching local Facebook Marketplace for a 1:1 Land Cruiser and came across a 3 month old ad for this. The guy said it had been started, he had lost interest and it was missing parts. He was asking $20 and I snapped it up. It was missing the hood, but everything seemed to be there, it even had 3 extra matching wheels and tires for some reason. I just opened it up to look at scratching a hood and found that it has a clear hood included so it has everything I need to build it. Very happy!
