  1. Looking good! Forgive me if this was already stated, did you mention what color you were thinking?
  2. not even close.. in fact I don't really have a "place" to unpack them. I have some outdoor things to attend to, hopefully after that I start framing my new indoor workplace.
  3. I really like the direction this turned
  4. Love the inspiration, and you are doing a fine job recreating it!
  5. Deadlines? Ha! What's that? glad to see you back on this one
  6. We kind of last minute decided to go to NNL East again this year. And since we are going I wanted to have more than one build to bring with me. This year's theme is "hot rods from hell" and I thought I could start a fun curbside and get it done before then. I am trying to use parts/kits that I otherwise might not use and found this kit in my stash missing some important parts. However all the body and interior pieces were there so it was a perfect candidate. Originally I was going for the pro-street look but using dually rear tires instead of slicks in the back. That idea never made it to far, maybe it was too close to the original Idea? Then today I started tinkering and noticed the AMT snaptite blazer chassis just about fell in place (I only had to trim a bit at the front) after that things started moving forward and I was making progress! Blazer chassis in, wheels and tires fitted, ride height set and the wheel openings massaged for those big tires. You may also note some plating / panels I started on too. A diamond plated hood scoop seemed appropriate That's all for now.. don't anticipate anything mind blowing here, just having fun with this one.
  7. I'll get back in this one soon, I kind of lost my way worried about how to paint it. I think I'll go back with my gut instinct though and see the original idea through. Last year was a weird year for me and I didn't finish anything. I intend to change that this year.
  8. one of those old AMT slammerz snap tite kits. I've probably had them 15+ years
  9. Thanks guys! It was a fun one
  10. that is really cool... dare I say two cool?
  11. As someone who has been lucky enough to see it up close and personal as well as watch the build in real time, I can honestly say this is one of the nicest models I have ever seen created. Pictures do not do the amount of thought and detail put into this justice in any way. In real life it almost doesn't seem real. hope you are making room for all the new awards you will be bringing home this year
  12. just a quick and fun creative exercise, started this Sunday night and finished up Monday night after work. I built it for our club's meeting theme tonight "2 seaters" It was really a lot more fun that I anticipated and it was a nice break to kind of use my imagination and not take a build so seriously. All made from sheet styrene and parts I've had in the parts bin (wheels, tires, engine etc..) Would have liked to had time to put a coat of clear on it, but other than that I am happy with the end result and it was a good way to use up some parts I might not have ever done anything with.
  13. thank you! Thanks! Drill the holes before you remove the trim. Works every time
  14. Thanks guys! Fixed my broken links now too..
  15. Thank you everyone for your comments
  16. Tackled one of the things I was stuck on, the front splitter/bumper mount. I wanted to retain my modified bumper but also give a aggressive front spoiler look too. I think I am finally getting somewhere. Don't mind the fitment, it is just taped in and I still have a lot of finish work left. Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki
  17. well this one is now "under-glass" Hosted on Fotki
  18. Quick and dirty slump-buster, until today it was well over a year since I finished anything. We have two shows coming up and I had this week off. I decided to see if I could knock out a quick curbside in about a week so I would have something to take with us. Got it finished up today and I can say it feels pretty good to finish something. Now to get one of those stalled projects completed.... Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki
