Necessity is the mother of invention, and you nailed it. I love scale modeling, and to see what others have done to make it work, that is thinking outside of the box. Getting past the point of a crappy resin body and using the ideal of "parts is parts", you've got one killer build. BONES TO YA!
Too cool! I remember when that four door Maverick was the spoiler of a many ProStock racers. That four door combo lent itself to perfect weight distribution and granted "4 door Maverick?" was the shock, they proved a point. Nice relic, and a salute to the early origins of ProStock.
the original ProStocks, they were the bomb! I just love that you were able to find a Maverick to work with...and ProStock ta boot! I love the idea of the original pro stocks, it captures the ideals of the "run what'cha brung" of the southern match racing, and just plain smack you in the face on what the factory involvement (lack of publicity) played to make ProStock the monster it has become. I still love ProStock, along with ProMod, they remind me of the 60's, wild and crazy creations...love'em. It's all history and nothing will change the fact that there were some wild carz running back then and they're still running now. Good work, nice history.
Tyrone, are you being held prisoner and forced to complete these models that you display? Sweet Geezus, you build some might crazy karz....where do you find the TIME? Is this some kind of time conspiracy? How is it that you have more hours in the day than us mere mortal humans? Nice work...love it, works of art! Inspiration is what you present, so that others will attempt to reach your level of expertise. I still can't figure out time management, but you sir, have somehow made it work to your advantage. I love the detail, and it doesn't matter if it is auto, air or sea, miniature is mind bending. Thank you.
Nice work, I always love the "what if" when it comes to completing a model. Imagine.....what if! I haven't built a model yet according to the instructions, but that might be why I have only finished a hand full out of 80+ sitting and waiting to be finished...the "what if's", every one of them. Kudos.
Love it, your attention to detail will make this model a make or break deal. It is tough to input detail to make the model on par with what is real but it is that attention to detail that makes the model an object of art.. Your splitting of the carbs just adds to the detail of the period/machine you have chosen to depict and make it a "take note" engine combo...ready to race and give no quarter attitude to your model. Keep it up.
i guess I jsut woke up, but you know what, your attention to detail is close to "religious" in its implementation to completing as close to as the original. The digital age has made access to such "target material" so much easier. I have file cabinets full of magazines from late fifties thru today as reference material. Reference just not in the sense of pictures but the interviews with the builders, to see inside their heads, and to have the final product to stare at...to give us ideas. I am impressed how you hung in there and the finding of material/photos into the construction of such a "cutting edge" funny car in the age of "Funny Car Wars". Thanks.
