  1. I do sometimes, but more then names...is the story I've made of why I'm building it.I don'type it up..just make it up before and as its being built..take care all..Chris
  2. I have a AMT 1950 chev pickup.I built this when these were first released..I think back in the mid 90's. here is the question?...my model I remember building stock build.it has a spare tire mount on it.did these early releases have a spare tire mount in the kit..I don't remember. I want to build another and need a few..any help I'd greatly appreciate it..thank you..Chris
  3. Nice work work.the older ford car grill may make it easier.the grill would be difficult. doin well..take care......Chris
  4. Been awhile with this one.tried different brake drums from lots of other kits..but nothing would work well enouch.so I bought all round tube styrene from West Valley here around the time of GSL .doin research on the electric style drums so as to start scratch building drums for this trailer..pictures soon to come.sorry been so long sense last pics and progress..take care all...Chris
  5. Been working on getting the sun roof holes filled.its gettin there slowly was looking at maybe choosing a different sbc from some that look more correct and less issues.trans is coming along.will post a few pics soon. I bought a old beatup Revell movin out van..glued mess it is.the frame was of interest to me cause in our model club here,they thought it was best if I make this a C10 instead of a K20..sense its not badged right...I don't know..still thinking what this one will be..thanks for all the interest.....Chris
  6. Good looking!..nice weathered look.I will be doing a similar project on the same kit..when it gets here.question are you going to put mirrors on this 50 chev? also..is it possible for you to post here or to me a digital copy of the instruction sheets?...please!!..so mostly this kit doesn't have a engine.are you going to make it look as it has no engine in it?.....nice work......Chris
  7. wow!! 4x4..yes..getting closer to what I want to build. the 1/2 tons will be cool.will be getting a few.I wsnt to made f350s..the badging is a big problem for me.im the real or 1/1 65's ,do they have the same engines available as the 70's do? Agree with ya all..Dodges would be great,so would 73-74 chev/gmc. thsnk ya Dave,Steve an Art...take care..will be looking for more pictures and info when there ready..Chris
  8. Nice work Greg. .funny I have a few of these vans.from unbuilt/un touched. they all seem to have the edge problem. I believe the length was cause these vans/tooling was originally a window van.csuse it was passenger vans.they were long. My stepfather was going to buy one.which instead he bought a chev c30 crewcab..he had a farm.anyways...I'm building a g30 van/tradesman in blue to copy that window/passenger van he wanted...lots of work...and your doing well on this.do you know what the color is going to be before the murals get painted?..what wheels this badboy will have?......Chris
  9. Monkey motion?..never heard og it..any pictures of this one or the page an page system...Chris
  10. I sure love this one.my friend showed up with a gift. .this kit.can't wait to get to start the build. there is a few going on righy now thay need to be finished first.thanks to Dave M and Moebius.....Chris I was going to add a picture.but the site says it has to be a 10.kb picture.I don't know how to do that,so no picyure..sides you all know what it looks like.
  11. Dave, great lookin.love the work your a doin on this.I use to drive my bosses around to pick up other cars. (with a trailer).I'm with a on the 4x4 thing.I'm putting parts together for a couple dodges and Chev's.I'll keep watching this..nice work......Chris
  12. Well thank you John I greatly appreciate your kind words.yes my nephew means alot to me.its not easy.my sister suffering the worst.we have been through it before to.life isn't easy.modeling is away to escape to a world of peace. back to modeling...yes I decided 2 months ago.its gping yo be a Plymouth 1968 Roadrunner.there is a story behind all my builds.I'm going to make it a barn find..but it was not in the barn but out in the weedd behind the barn.its going to be without the front fenders as they were removed and primed.no engine but transmission still in it.in the mid 70's was raced..so it was a street runner. In my young life I worked for a company called National Speed Equipment here and a few others involved in this company.I used to go rescue cars an pickup from the junkyards.we would use a trailer and truck to go get them out of where they were at.alot of times they were in fields..in the weeds with no engines.miss parts.well this Plymouyh 68 Roadrunner is going to look like what we used to go get out of thr fields here. So I'm going to build the firewall and bulk head.I got the kit which is AMT 1968 Plymouth Roadrunner. I've cut off the front fenders now.I'm collecting parts.I got the monster N50 15's from Fireball.of course the tires have to be wore out..to my burn outs as we call it in those days. started all the processes for this part . here's a few pictures to show you where its at..thank you for asking John.you have a great day...Chris
  13. That would be great.I'm in to many projects now to participate in it.sides my fav and car I loved isn't and was new kitted.my Stef which was my Nova's name 1974 Nova SS coupe.if it was kitted now and out.I drop every project and all effort wou,d goon making my Stef..so this is on facebook.I'd like to watch....Chris
  14. Ok,the trailers tires have gotten here today.I ordered three different sets and picked the Scale Unlimited T25 Goodyear Atlas set.they fit the rims..perfectly. the right width, height and fit the rim not to tite but tite enouch.most of all look right for the lowered fenders..for me.the hitch and receiver, battery came as well. the pictures are of my crude mock up with the before cut back fender and the after back cut I removed about 1/8 of a inch from the height ,..I like it better.I made a styrene plastic jig to back cut the fenders.it was easier to me..the other pictures of the tires I'm going with and the rims.this project is going again.its amazing how looking for the right tires and life problems get in your way. Daniel at Scale Unlimited is and has amazing product lines.I highly recommend taking a look..smokin parts.
  15. Yes,sorry been sick and had my nephew end his life..he means alot to me.I'm waiting for tires from scenes unlimited.Daniel an I got figured out the tires for it.there on there way.I took a few picture of what its going to be towed by and got the fenders back cut.the pictures I took were terrible so I'll take a few more now some of the life is ssettling down.thanks for the interest....Chris
  16. I wished it was a longbed.cause making longbeds out of 6ft shortbeds mean two kits,while if you want a short 6ft bed..its just subtracting the plastic and two cuts. it costs less.if you make a couple of these..there is alot of parts left over...ya know...oh well.....Chris
  17. Here is what I recieved today .the Unimog is going to be parts and the Opal Blitz is part of a project...I'm happy...Chris
  18. Mike, What hnd clamp are you referringto..I'd like to know. Isn't there a adjustable hemostat that doctors use.it has a screw adjust on it.? Thank you all for your suggestions . ..I saw this..has anyone used it before?.....Chris
  19. I'm having trouble with holding small parts in my hands when sanding,glueing and holding parts..just getting old.so looking for something to hold parts while sanding an glueing parts..any good suggestions ? .....thank you...Chris
