    :) Love the Starliners. My 2nd car was a 61 Starliner. Have plans to build it sometime lol .
    I really like the color choice. And the Spider Caps set the 60ish theme real well. Keep up the good work.

    Feel like a kid treated to a whole candy shop. Starliners and Birdcage Maseraties all in one day. Love the exhaust tips on the 1:1 Starliner.
    Keep those 'Liners coming.Love the dogdish caps on the model.

    Always had a love for "Birdcages". Had a lexan body in my teens. Don't know what became of it. Good job.

    I like this 'cherry red' 'chero. Good resto. I too like the wheel treatment.
    It gives it a period look mild custom hiding the engine swap.

    What type of clay did you have under the bad winshield ? Also did you remove the broken piece b4 you applied heat? I have wondered if something like this was possible

    Being a tri-5 Ford fan, I'll echo Cobreman's comments. The wheels caught my eye in the opening photo.
    Keep us droolin' on this one . Good work.

    Used to work for a forklift dealer. We sold Cushman industrial vehicles (electric and gasoline powered).
    I think there was a tricycle Police vehicle we sold. With our gas prices these may become necessary if they're able to be licensed on road.

    This is probably the status of my old '61 Starliner if it's not crushed already. Good job.
  14. Hoosierfarmboy added a post in a topic '60 Starliner, smoothed out *New, brighter pics, in first post*   

    Love it. I had a '61 back in the day. Was a 2bbl 352 with 3 speed. I have a '60 & '61 model of both years, plus an original '60 that's in a custom wip at the moment. I saved pix for reference. Good job. Keep it up.
  15. Hoosierfarmboy added a post in a topic Let's hear/see your Craft Store findings for our models!   

    This is a good post. Some of the items I have been using already. I found a pack of small dice recently @ Hobby Lobby in the doll house section. Noticed some 'coke' cans there recently. I use the jewelery pins with a formed circular ends with the crimp tubes and styrene tubing for 4 link systems. I bought some quilting quarter fabric recently to make upholstery. From an automotive supply group I bought some vinyl masking tape and used it for seat belt material. It is very flexible. I also use 4mm,6mm, & 9mm rings for gauge bezels. light rims etc. I made a couple of dome lights using them, filled it with clear nail polish after painting it blue. I've also obtained samples of wood veneer (attached to a flexible backing) for wood grain use. Keep looking, there's all kinds of goodies out there.
