    We have the same in Australia, but it's a 'P' (provisional license). personally i don't see how it helps you be a better driver, it only allows the police to target you.
    Closest i've found to my first car is a 1/64 diecast two door Luce (mine is a four door)

    It's a nice kit, although it comes partly assembled (i'd have preferred to build the whole thing myself).

    sweet. it just needs a bit of snowy road to be displayed on.

    i like it. the wear and patina on the chrome makes it look a little rusty, which i think makes it look more like an honest survivor car. The only suggestion i have is add some clear to the front lamps in the grille. i'd suggest a layer of 5-minute epoxy to make it look like it's made of glass.
    i usually reference the 59 dodge when talking about ugly cars (it's not just ugly, but also looks angry)

    Interesting patina effect you've achieved. top job

    nice model. i totally get wanting to do a replica of your first car (sadly mine isn't available in scale). i like the little details, like the music player on the dash.
    Does any of the other kits come with a RHD dash? maybe someone would swap with you if they want to make theirs LHD?

    Captain Risky - Kick it or Rip it!!
    This is Captain Risky's Stunt Falcon...
    Budget Direct – an Australian insurance company – have thrown us into 2015 with their new ‘Kick It and Rip It’ campaign with "Captain Risky". He makes his black and blue debut as a daredevil who’s just, well, not that good. But it’s funny and ridiculous and that is the success of this ad. It shows us someone so buffoonish, so uninsurable, that next to him, anyone can be insured.
    The Falcon XB is from ThePartsBox.com and the decals are printed by Pattos Place. The Roof engine is scratchbuilt.

    Short Circuit - Nova Van
    This is the Van from the movie "Short Circuit", a cute movie from the 80s about an errant robot that escapes its creators and helps a young woman find love.
    The Van is a Chevy "Candy Van" kit from AMT with GMC grille and scratchbuilt box cargo area. The decals are exclusive to Pattos Place. Special thanks to Doobie for the GMC grille. The rims and tires are from scene unlimited.
    You can catch up on the build here: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/103932-gmc-box-truck/

    fabulous job. looked at your wip, you've done a lot of work on this.
  15. kruleworld added a post in a topic Monogram Lincoln Futura   

    fabulous job. I did mine as it appeared in "It Started with a Kiss", only difference is the number plate! I actually cut the chassis from the body so it could be put together and painted as one piece.
