  1. Drop Tank 'Liner

    I like it! Nice use of the aluminum too!
  2. Another Finished Model Porsche 911

    Thanks for the kind words!
  3. SCCA TR3 F Production Race car

    Looks great to me!
  4. Building and using a centrifugal caster

    That is too cool! Could you use it to cast resin too?
  5. Okey Spaulding - Mr. Johan

    The last I saw was a few years ago on eBay. I haven't looked in a while.
  6. Mid-Engine Corvette

    They need to keep the Corvette a front engine sports/grand touring and let the mid engine car be it's own thing. Maybe they can use the Stingray name for the new one and give it it's own identity.
  7. I'm on a roll, sort of. I've been a kit starter for a couple of years and I'm pushing myself to finish somethings. I've been buying Monogram curbside 911s whenever I find them as they are my favorite kit ever. Anyway, I built this one up as another hot rod the way I'd like to have a real one. It's done in Kryon Smoke Grey. I removed the whale tail and it is lowered with American style deep dish steelies. Nothing fancy and I've still got to figure out where to get some mirrors as the Monogram kit didn't come with them. Anyway, here it is along with another Monogram and a Tamiya I've done this month.
  8. Revell 1980 Bronco engine

    The Revell/Monogram 1/24th Bronco was a 302 I think. The Revell one is probably a 351W but the kit wasn't as accurate overall.
  9. Favorite kits

    The Monogram Porsche 911 curbside kit is mine. I built it many times as a kid, usually the same kit that I tore apart and redid, and have been buying and building them again over the last year or so.
  10. Toyota Fj Cruiser , New From Fujimi

    I never warmed up to the 1:1 FJ so I won't be getting this, but if they decide to do an FJ40 I would be getting that.
  11. Yes sir! Another of the old MPC kits I would love to build again!
  12. This is one of those kits I would buy, then buy again. I love the old MPC kits. I would buy the step bed ones, the long bed ones and if they backdated it with the original tooling grille and stuff, I would buy it again!
  13. I love what you have done this is amazing. I could use a set of those Rotiforms with tires. I've never ordered from Shapeways. Can you give me a primer on them? What is your name on their site? Do we order your design from them and they print it out and ship it? Do they take credit cards? Sorry if this has been answered before.

    This looks great, when I was in the Navy at Corry Station in Pensacola they had a hobby shop that had this kit. I bought and built it twice. I need to start watching for eBay for it. I also know what you mean about finding a kit you love. I am that way about the old Monogram Porsche 911 curbside. It's not well detailed, but everytime I build one, I have fun. I built and rebuilt it as a kid and a couple years ago found it and redid it again. Now I seem to be on a mission to corner the market on them! lol
  15. I've got a couple of these in the box to be built some day. Really nice work
