    He's joking with you because you have most of the pix upside-down.
     
    It's all good!
  2. Drake69 added a post in a topic How many kits do you have in your stash?   

    My wife tells me "one more".....
     
    As in, "one more than I'm able to build in my lifetime..."....

    The '69 Charger from Revell would be a great start except for one thing, it's a vinyl top car. Since the General is a straight hardtop, the BEST way to build it wiould be to do what I did and get a Revell '68 Charger 2-in-1 and swap out the bodies with a Revell '69, then use all the other '69 parts for the rest.
    NOTE: You will still need to source out a pushbar, decent CB radio, antenna, and decals, but there are resources out there to find those. Good luck!


     
    EDIT: Bad pix, I need to take some better photos without the glare....

    No, "shadows" as in the angle of the flash when I took the pic. The paint is Tamiya dark gunmetal grey.
     
    Glad you like it!

    Javelin... I WANT THAT.
    Also could do with an AMC Hornet and/or a Matador (non-race of course!).

    But keep the "Zoomy" decals tho......

    Man, you need to throw a tarp over that block or it'll rust itself to oblivion! 
     
    VERY NICE!!!
     
    EDIT: You also need to find a way to bend one of those mirrors down closer to the door. I can't tell you how many times I've seen someone clip one of those against a tree or random barn door....

    Actually, you're better off hunting for this....
     

     
    Much more accurate and has all the correct decals.

    Awesome about the '29 Roadster, but I'm REALLY pulling for the Torino and Ranchero.
    C'mon Revell!!! We want these BADLY!!!!!

    I would love to see you take a black-n-white pic of this car against a photo backdrop of the flats.
    Un-freaking-REAL.
  11. Drake69 added a post in a topic 1949 Mercury Wagon   

    That actually looks more natural than other efforts I've seen, especially contrasting against the darker woodgrain and cream color.
    Excellent!
  12. Drake69 added a post in a topic Wanted: 'Dukes' Daisy's Roadrunner   

    Yeah, it's gonna be a little hard to find this one since it was "retired" by Round 2 a while ago. You can still find them popping up on fleaBay every so often.
  13. Drake69 added a post in a topic '57 Chevy Custom Cruiser   

    Is that a model car or an episode of Fast 'n Loud?
     
    Nice work!!!!
  14. Drake69 added a post in a topic Bare Metal 57 Ford   

    You know, it was pretty awesome before....
     
    Now it's just plain NASTY.....
     

     
    Flippin' EVIL.... Such IDEAS it gives me......

    Don't forget Microscale's Liquid Decal Film. It works perfectly on preserving old decal sheets.
